    Superb

    The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable and large - King Size

    The couple on Staff were difficult to understand and had difficulty understanding us due to language barrier. However, they were very friendly.

    Not much. We will not stay there again.

    The pool was closed. The manager could not speak english. The manager did not understand the billing rate. The internet price did not reflect a 10% tax nor tack on fees. Motel was noisy. The shower was very small. The continental breakfast was fast food packets.

    It was beautiful the photo that I seen in a computer but my first night I didn't sleep because something bitten on my legs and the second night it was nightmare I have a lot of bites by bedbugs. Eventhough they changed our room, my husband and I had bites by a bedbugs. We will never never never never again to stay in this hotel. The housekeeping very poor to clean the rooms. I like the location and the design but its dirty.

    I don't like the dirty rooms and a lot of bedbugs.

    I liked that they had a really cheap price on a Thursday night and the room was really clean.

    I didn't like the walls were a little thin and the outside needs a little facelift. But all in all its was worth it and we were happy!

    The front office gentleman was very helpful, I booked on our way to the hotel and had zero problems checking into the room, once there he let me upgrade to a jaccuzzi suite at an awesome deal of a price.

    Noisy air conditioner

    Clean, cheap, close to the gondola and the casinos.

    Steep ramp into parking lot is dangerous when it's icy.
