“Fun yet dated”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

As is usually the case, you get what you pay for. The rooms here are typical for a dated casino - large yet sparse. The beds that we had were OK, not bad nor great. Our room was very clean and we appreciated that. Typically the Virgin River has the cheapest rooms in Mesquite and they are quite a bargain. If you are looking for a romantic hotel to lounge about in your room, this is not the place. If you are looking for a cheap room with many attached amenities than this works out well. The only negative from our recent trip was the River Cafe. We stopped in on Friday night and it was extremely busy. It took quite some time to receive our food, but the waitress explained that "the cooks had overlooked our order'. OK, whatever. When the food finally arrived, it was tasty and inexpensive. Saturday night we stopped in again for dinner. After 30 minutes, our waiter explained that the cooks had "forgotten our order". Hmm, seems like I had heard thiat before. 15 minutes later, he arrived with "our food". My plate was correct, but my wife's was an entirely different dish. He apologized and said that he would get it straightened out. The waiter returned to say that hers was almost ready and he wanted to know if I wanted my plate now or when hers came out. I said now. 10 minutes went by and we still had no food. SO, after almost an hour of waiting, we walked out of the restaurant and sadly went to the McDonalds across the street. Overall, a pleasant enough property and I'm sure that we'll be back, but I can't imagine ever returning to the cafe where "the cooks' are so incompetent.

We stayed here while in transit between California and Utah both coming and going. For us, Mesquite is a great place for the overnight stop - nice little town, a community gym 1/2 mile from this hotel to work out at before hitting the road, and a decent buffet meal for dinner and breakfast. The hotel is a basic motel - nothing fancy but clean and decent beds. For 35$ midweek it's an amazing bargain. We liked it enough to plan on stopping there on the way back and were not disappointed.

We stopped there on the way from OC to SLC after seeing the $35 per night special billboards along the way. The rooms were $35 per night but did not include a free breakfast as advertised (good for only the first 350 guests). Then driving to the room we discovered they are actually motel rooms; should have left then and got our money back but were too late to look elsewhere.

The rooms were spartan and no shampoo, soap, and hot water. When my friend asked to comp a breakfast for the lack of hot water the hotel clerks declined to do so. he got the name of the manager and said he will complain about the motel.

Room Tip: Drive on the LV or St. George for an overnight room.

We have stayed here 3 times now on our drives to Las Vegas. The rooms are spacious and clean. The rates are very low and if you gamble a little bit and apply for their rewards card, the rooms are usually free. Yes the place is a little on the old side, but head into Vegas if you're expecting glitz and glam. The food is very good and extremely reasonably priced. I really do like that there is a Starbucks there. With the bowling lanes and arcade and a nice pool area, it does attract families and sometimes noise from neighbors can be a problem but you can request a "quiet" room if need be. On one ocassion I had won a bit of money very late in the night and was nervous to walk back to my room - security was happy to escort me. The only negative about this hotel is that you still have to pay for wifi, however a day or two disconnected from my computer never hurts either! The cleaning staff here are very honest - on my last visit I left a pair of flip flops in the room and on our way home I stopped to see if they had been turned in (my favorite pair). YES they had!

For those just looking for a clean and economical room, I feel they do a great job of it. The food specials are fantastic and there is plenty off it. Casino, bowling, a pool, a Starbucks and lots of parking for RV's and trailers.

Room Tip: If traveling with a big rig ask for a room in the back were their is great RV parking.

Good price for the night. Booked through Easy booking.com had a cheap rate. Did see signs on the highway for $32 with breakfast. Check in was quick. Room very clean, recent carpet change but dated sink counter. Like: sink located in the room outside the bath. Like: having table and 2 chairs in the room to sit and use with compupter. Easy to park in front of room. Located on the casino grounds, easy walk to casino, and restaurant. For families there was a nice outdoor pool, and a bowling/recreation area in casino building.
