At first I wasn't going to write a review on this place becasue I didn't want to write anything negative, but nope, people need to know the truth! Me and my 2 kids ended up staying here for 2wks because we were in between houses and unfortunatly this was the only place that had vacancies within my budget (weekly's are cheaper and cleaner than this place). So, the motel is run down, dirty carpet, dirty walls, the microwave wasn't cleaned, the linen looked dinjy and dirty, it stunk really bad, carpet was tore up, I never locked my door when I left because it was super hard to unlock the door because the key wasn't reaching the lock part. The heater only had 1 knob so had to use that knob for heat, air, warm and cool! After staying for a week, the housekeeper came to do room service and had the audacity to tell me that if I wanted her to vacuum or make my bed we would have to step out of the room because of the corona virus, yet she was standing at the door talking to me with no mask on but wanted me to step out, a little dumb but even worse, she so worried about the corona virus yet she had on gloves that were not disposable touching everything including the cart, vacuum cleaner and door knobs without changing gloves and touching clean linen but worried about the corona virus. The room was nasty and dirty when we moved in so I'm not trippen on her not wanting to clean because when I got there I cleaned the walls, microwave and used my own sheets, pillows and towels. Tell me why when I went to go get my deposit, these fools told me that I left a soiled sheet and towel, yet we had our own sheets and we used the towels to clean them nasty walls.... Unless you're just desperate and all the other motels and weekly's are taken, don't stay at this nasty, dirty, stinky, overpriced motel, you would be better off sleeping in a dumpster!!

Booked this hotel hurriedly through Bookings.com and it was a big mistake. The motel looked old, rundown, dirty and scary. There was no staff on site and you will have to go to another location to check in and out. You cannot talk to anybody when you need additional amenities in your room. The worst part was our bed mattress was wet with pee and they did not even bother to clean or dry it and just covered it with sheets. You can just imagine what we went through with wet and smelly bedsheets and nobody to talk to have the beddings changed. We had to sleep through the night with improvised covers just to get rid of the smelly and dirty bed. The area is very scary with hookers going in and out of the premise, smell of marijuana everywhere and hotel guests who would want to pick a fight like blaming you for the weak wifi because your car is blocking the tree. To top it all, management did not lift a finger nor said a word when we told them of our complains. Worst experience I've ever had and a big R E G R E T to have stayed here.

Booked this motel harriedly via booking.com a few days before new year's eve, with my family. I have never regretted anything in my life until now.  I thought it would be good to spend a couple of days in Las Vegas sort of a layover and at the same time to experience what new year celebration is like here.. very bad end of the year experience for us. This motel was presented really well on booking.com. i should have read the reviews on tripadvisor before booking..noted years ago but the reviews remains true to this date and highly  agreeable! I should not have trusted the website or booking.com. What you see is not what you get on this one.  It  is  cheapest of cheap! The place stank of cigarette smoke, urine, ammonia and damp. They must have tried to mask the smell with some laundry freshener but failed as the stench persists. The room is cold and it is suffocating! They have the audacity to ask $100 deposit for incidentals! Not good value for money..I paid $394. I feel severely cheated! The wall panels that divide the rooms from another is made of wood that we could hear the residents conversations from one side, and coupling sounds from the other.  The beds are of cheap quality. I highly don't recommend it.  Steer clear. Please don't even think of booking this motel..even if you're that desperate. A couple of hours after I had a bad headache, nausea, and dizziness. So bad that I decided to book another place to stay for the night. No,no,no don't book..you will be making a Big mistake. Never again.

Unless you're a drug addict or a hooker I would not even consider staying at this place. How it ever got 2 stars is beyond me. People were hanging out outside the rooms just waiting to see what your luggage looks like. We arrived Memorial Day weekend for reservations made the night before via hotels.com. There was three people in line and all of us had had our perfectly valid credit cards mysteriously declined and our reservations cancelled. The obvious reason being is they wanted to discard the lower rate and re-book the rooms at a higher rate because Vegas was packed for that weekend. No more rooms were available for us who were declined. The management on duty was pretty rude and condescending. I don't know what they're feeling high-and-mighty about, the place is an absolute dump. All in all we feel fortunate that our reservation was declined so we were not charged and we were lucky to find another, safer place considering it was Memorial Day weekend.
