Stumbled upon a great deal at this hotel for the long weekend when everything else on/near The Strip was too pricey.
Checking in process was smooth, took less than five minutes and manager at the front desk was very friendly and an upfront guy. We told him our sensitivity to bed bugs and issues we have had at other budget hotels in the past. He was reassuring that nothing like that would happen here and he was right.
We had requested for a non-smoking room and luckily we got one. With the room being located at Level 1 and parking spots right outside we were concerned about the noise that might disturb our sleep at night but thankfully that did not happen. Room in general was spacious, had a safe, iron & ironing board and a coffee maker. Hygiene itself wasn't great - carpet was old and sticky (not something you want to step on barefoot), corners in bathroom still had few hair stuck in them, flush was continuously running, but thankfully with no bugs in the room, I can live with the rest of the stuff (after all, its just a weekend!). Décor of the room is nothing fancy but typical of a budget hotel; bed seemed a little old as I could feel the springs in the mattress, nevertheless, it was comfortable to sleep on.
Location is not the best, a little sketchy but only a little over a mile from The Strip. There is plenty of free parking and free Wi-Fi on property. The hotel also has a pool, a wedding chapel, a laundry room, a vending machine and a café. There are a few grab-n-go type eating places and a gas station nearby.
All in all, a decent budget hotel near the Strip, not something fancy but just a place to stay and sleep at night after you have charmed yourself with other attractions in Las Vegas.
