Quality Inn
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Boulder City
Reviewed 31 August 2013

As we approached the end of our road trip on Route 66, my brother and I decided to take in the Hoover Dam. It meant that we arrived in Boulder City, NV, somewhat later in the evening, after a day spent driving in 120 degree heat. We were looking for a Best Western property that was listed on his GPS: eventually, we arrived at the Quality Inn, which had formerly been the Best Western Lighthouse Inn.

Since it was the end of a long, hot day, we were quite happy to stay at the first place that had a vacancy. The evening desk clerk was courteous and helpful, and we were able to get a room for around $95. This seemed like a good deal, especially since the room had decent beds and air conditioning.

I didn't spend much time in the room, apart from getting a good night's sleep. I did make extensive use of the computer that was located in the small lobby area. The evening desk clerk kindly encouraged me to use the computer for as long as I needed, and he also invited me to help myself to some complimentary coffee from the nearby breakfast area.

My brother and I hit the road early, but we managed to have a few simple breakfast items before we left. I did notice that the swimming pool was empty, but I also noticed that (by morning light) one gets a nice view of Lake Mead from the hotel parking lot.

All in all, the Quality Inn at Boulder City served its purpose: it provided us with a place to rest where we could also escape from the heat. It may, indeed, have somewhat limited appeal for long-term guests, but we found that it was adequately comfortable for a brief stopover on a longer journey.

This hotel is located very close to both the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas. It is far enough from Vegas that you don't have to worry about the traffic and close enough to hop over whenever you want. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and some of the views are very nice. The price is more than reasonable. The staff were all very friendly. We saw 30 big horn sheep at the park a couple blocks away. It is a good place to bring the kids. Decent view of the lake.

We wanted to be on one of the upper floors facing Lake Mead for the view. They charge extra for that. No elevator so if you can't climb the stairs, best to take a ground floor room. The drawback there is that certain animals can get it, like the snake that my girlfriend stepped on in her ground floor room. We had a few critters on the third floor, too, like ants and a cockroach. (To be expected in the desert, to some degree.)
The upsides: frig, microwave, complimentary Wi-Fi, a walk-out patio with chairs, a safe, complimentary breakfast, a nice big comfortable bed, table and chairs and a desk. The old-fashioned a/c kept up but just barely. The view of the mountains and the lake from our patio was spectacular and we watched a herd of longhorn sheep stroll by. It was breezy so the palm trees made that delicious sound. The pool looked clean and inviting but we didn't use it.
We suggested that the owners send my girlfriend a gift certificate or coupon to make up for the snake. I don't know if they will.

Room Tip: No elevators. Be prepared to walk the stairs.

The staff here is fantastic, "above and beyond the call of duty" type ladies! I cannot commend them enough; the gals at the desk are genuine sweethearts. Breakfast is also a hit with quite a variety, including scrambled eggs and fresh waffles. However, while the front sign boasts of a pool and spa, both were closed by the Health Dept. nearly a month ago - since June 13, according to documents posted on both locked gates.

Furthermore, we had five cockroaches, a large black spider, and a cricket in four days. The last night of our stay, we waited to go inside the room while a snake crossed our threshold. The only thing I could say was "Well, snakes do eat bugs."

As for Boulder City, it is quaint, and the park just north of the Quality Inn has a herd of wild Bighorn Sheep who visit daily to munch on the well maintained, grassy landscape! We enjoyed watching the Bighorn Sheep immensely.

We enjoyed our stay, despite the bugs, which we were assured are simply routine to life in the dry climate of Nevada where EVERYONE seeks out water. Had we been traveling with children, the lack of a pool would have been an issue, but we were there for Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, and area hikes. What a beautiful place! I would go back.

Room Tip: Insist on a view of the lake in a second or third floor room to decrease the likelihood of bugs and...

We were here so we could see the Hoover Dam. Check in was not easy as we were there a bit early and were told no one can check in early. OK...We went out to eat a bite and when we came back, at the suggested time, we were told we were still too early. When we did get into the room, there were not enough towels and the air conditioner was just hanging in the opening. There was a two inch gap where daylight was coming through. We called down to the office and was told the maintenance man was not on the grounds. So we stuffed towels in the opening. After my husband cleaned the air conditioning filter, which was LOADED with nasty, it started to cool off finally. Breakfast was not anything special but it was good. We would probably rethink another stay here due to the condition and customer service issues we found.

We stayed here the night we arrived in Vegas, because we planned on visiting Hoover Dam & Lake Mead the next day. It was a very nice room. Comfortable bed, good complimentary breakfast. Quick check-in and check-out.

We stayed here because we were visiting hoover dam the next day. Nice location set into a hill. My room had a view the lake. The room was very large and clean. The bathroom was also a nice size. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The a/c worked well which is good because it was hot outside! This motel is also within a few miles of several restaurants and grocery store. The friendly desk clerk recommended an Italian bistro near by that was one of the best Italian restaurants ever! Would not hesitate to stay here again. Good wifi connection! The continental breakfast was better than most, however the eating area was on the small side. Grounds also seemed well kept.
