The manor motor lodge is a 2 storey buidling on the opposite side of the road from the main hotel, we did not choose this but it worked well becuase we were visiting friends and they could park outside each day to pick us up. However, parking in the hotels is easily accessible, plentiful and free.
We had stayed here before in the main tower, so we knew in advance that this Hotel itself is by no means plush, so if you want luxury choose somewhere else, if you want a big room and the basics then its fine.
Dissapointing on arrival that we our room had not been cleaned fully, it looked as though the maid had been distracted halfway through, the carpet was not vacumed, the fridge still had food remains of the previous guests, and there was rubbish in one of the drawers. We did report this to reception, but the time it would have taken for someone to come and sort this out would have meant us staying in the room, and as we were fighting off the jet lag and wanted to keep on the move, we found a vacum cleaner and sorted it out ourselves. The bathroom and toilet were v clean and that was the important part for us,also clean sheets and good pillows. we did notice a sweet stuck to the bed spread! but again just took the covers off and got on with it. Once we got this sorted the room was great with all the things we needed. comfotable queens size beds, fridge almost full size, ironing board and iron, and decent hairdryer that actually blows hot air! it was cleaned well each day with fresh towels daily.
There are plenty of places to eat in the hotel although we only used the deli 1 day for breakfast preferring to venture out to places with more pleasant surroundings. Interestingly smoking is allowed in all the casinos, and it makes you realise how lovely it is here at home to have a smoke free zone when you are eating.
The circus acts are fun to see and run until 10.30pm, nothing specctacular but worth looking at.
there is a 2:1 offer on a different beer each night, but if you can stand the 'smell' of the casino hall, which unlike the other is rather smelly, you can take the bottles back to your room.
There is a bus service for $7 all day ticket or $5 for 2 hours, that takes you up the strip and you can hop on and off as you please, the taxi is around $10 to $15 from hotel to Mandalay Bat right at the other end of the strip.
As ;long as you go prepared that this is not luxury in any way, then you will be okay.
have stayed in both the tower and the motor lodge and rooms are identical
