Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We just returned from a six night stay at wave rider. Originally, i booked room 154 so we would have easy access to the pool. Once we got to the room, there were tools scattered about and the door was standing open. The door surround had been totally ripped out. They scheduled maintenance? They promptly switched us to another room, unfortunately it was on the 2nd floor. It did have newer tv's.

I found the room a bit dated, the comforters are a hideous poo brown and olive green. It's a bit off putting at first right when you walk in the door. The room was clean and it was perfectly adequate. It's not 5 star, but i wasn't expecting that for the price i paid. The staff was always friendly and accommodating. The pools were sparkling. I especially enjoyed the little mushroom fountain kiddie pool. My 2 yr old and i had it to ourselves most of the time. We would stay here again.

Everyone seemed nice but it was not the cleanest place. They had tile missing in the shower, the air unit is a window unit and you had to climb on a chair just to turn it on. We went to the beach and came back and they had sprayed the rooms with bug spray. In the outside hallway on the way to the room they had some roach looking things. You could hear everything going on in the other rooms and outside. They also had a door that lead to the room next to you which was scary not knowing who was in there. Then when we tried to get in the lazy river they only had one float in the pool, so my boyfriend went and asked the front desk if they had more and they gave him a new one that he had to blow up himself. Everyday there was a duck swimming in the pool. I am not one to usually complain but this stay was not the best and I would of gotten a new hotel after seeing the room but they charged you anyway. The pictures the website had were not what the rooms looked like.For the price it works but wouldn't go back or recommend to anyone.

I am a moderate traveler and I have to say by far this was the worst Hotel experience EVER. First key did not work for room they had to cut a new key. Second there were no trash cans in room and no phone. And to top it off after cleaning service cleaned room. Got back to room, tub was full of black bugs. We had to wash up in sink and we checked out. HOTEL IS NASTY DIRTY. OH AND ELEVATOR DOORS DID NOT OPEN ALL THE WAY. DO NOT STAY HERE. MANAGER IS AL SO VERY RUDE

Needed a last minute hotel for a marathon my wife was in. Picked up a coupon book at visitor center and for $35.00 per night we found this hotel. The room was comfortable with two beds and a kitchen right on the strip. It was an older hotel but the room we had appeared to have been updated recently. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
