Don't purchase a stay here and expect a hotel because it is like a condo. They have a 3 car garage out back. Park in the lower part to get a dolly to bring your bags in. They have several activities during the week to keep kids busy. We enjoyed the movie at the pool. We had an adjoining two apartment rooms which was nice. Our view was the pool and street so I bet the mountain views that several people suggest are amazing. There is a little walk but you won't find most of the hotels on the strip to be as clean and modernized. There is a back way to walk that takes you further up the strip so you can avoid the foot traffic. These have full kitchens so you can cook. There are also grills by the pool. There is a little store on the opposite side of the street if needed and the hotel carries a few items for purchase. The log cabin pancake restaurant across the street is our favorite pancake place hands down. We have eaten at pancake pantry (not as special as people make it seem) and flapjacks (horrible). Easy to get to the 3rd floor where the lobby is located. Elevators are quick.
