Newest first
8.5 Great
Pros:Management was extremely helpful. Boosted my car off with a smile. Perfect budget stay, short 5 minute walk to casino.
Cons:You get what you pay for as far as condition.
8.8 Great
Pros:This was a great stay. The room was close to the parking lot, bed was comfortable, wifi was reliable, and my partner and I got a good night's rest. Of course you can't expect 5 star experience (whatever that is), but for a ton of privacy, clean and comfortable room and bed, and the distance from there to the beach/shopping center, for the price ($70~/night) it was awesome!
Cons:The continental breakfast was limited (cereal, orange juice, alright cinnamon buns, oatmeal, coffee, tea, apples and bananas). It was probably first-come, first-serve, yet no one told us of this policy or when it started (7am-9am). I recommend staff to tell us when it is available and what is included. I wouldn't pay extra for the breakfast.
5.4 Passable
Pros:The location was great
Cons:It has a musty smell, the bottom sheet was not a fitted sheet so if I turned over I would take the sheet with me and be laying on the bare mattress :(. The bathrooms were not super clean.
8.2 Great
Pros:It was economical and ideal since we just wanted a place to sleep while visiting. Check-in and check-out were very smooth. Beds were fine. Included a pass to the nearby beach.
Cons:Only a few things were not good: The window blinds didn't darken the room very much, and the provided breakfast in the morning was very basic: two cereals, some donuts, and coffee, milk, & OJ.
6.8 Okay
Pros:The location was very close to the casinos
Cons:We ordered a room with a Jacuzzi tub and the tub was broke but they gave us our money back so that was OK
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Price location privacy
Cons:You get what you pay for nothing to dislike. Would stay again.
7.7 Good
Pros:Blissfully quiet! Simple breakfast every morning, in room coffee pot, microwave and mini-fridge with freezer was perfect for our stay. Kept our snacks and sodas cool and allowed us to brew our own coffee and tea. Microwave was a bonus to reheat leftovers from the local restaurants. Steps away from Harvey's and Harrah's and Heavenly Village. Cute and delish taco stop next door. Walk to the beach equipped with beach front dinning. Comfy bed! Slept better here than at home - okay, that may have been because we got away from the kids. Excellent wifi, and plenty of TV and HBO. We are telling everyone about this hidden jewel; for the money, its as good as it gets. The motels with numbers in their names charge twice as much for 1/2 the comfort and even less amenities. We are already looking ahead to book again. Still can't get over how wonderfully quiet this corner of the universe was at all hours of the day and night.
Cons:We would have loved an outdoor hot tub, but not a big deal. They have rooms with spa tubs, and next time we'll book one of those rooms!
7.6 Good
Pros:The room size was good as was the location, within walking distance to Harrahs.
Cons:Not a big deal, but the hot water took a few minutes to warm up from freezing cold.
9.6 Excellent
Pros:Great value, very helpful staff, highly recommended.
9.0 Excellent
Pros:The management was very accommodating to the few requests we made. Very comfortable 10 days with everything we needed for an inexpensive and pleasant stay. Only steps away from casinos, restaurants, shopping, theater and gondola to top of mountain. Excellent value!
