4/10 Fair

The stained and dirty carpet was too much to handle. All the furniture was old and very worn. Patch work was done to the bathroom wall but not re-painted. My daughter started crying when we walked into the room.

Time has not been this hotel's friend
So much disappointment. We stayed here a few years back and loved it. So we were kinda expecting the same. First room was still being cleaned, usually no problem except employee had her child with her and I could her tell her child to stop touching everything she just cleaned. Ugh Second room, AC didn't work and couldn't be adjusted. Third room better but we got locked out on our second day. Supposedly the cards can get demagnetized except my cards were the only ones. As well we were never informed housekeeping would be coming into the rooms. One attempted to access the room twice while my husband was in the room and accessed my daughter's room with the DO NOT DISTURB SIGN. Needless to say NEVER AGAIN

Not good place
Worse experience ever I had . Got there and something looks suspicious. Check in and when I try to get in the room I open the door and there was people in the bed

8/10 Very good

Escape from the Las Vegas heat road-trip
The room was neat and tidy but an power outlet wasn’t working and the coffee maker had to be replaced. Also one of the bedside lights would turn off on its own. The pool and especially the hot tub needs to be cleaned (sandy/leaves).

Needed more cleaning
It was not clean. Light by the bed not working. So i was trying to check if it was just unplugged. Check the back of the table and move the bed a little bit to find the outlet and saw disgusting things that the guest left (female underwear). Chipped paints on the door. Dusty. Carpet was really terrible. We reserve a suite for 6 guest and they only provide 1 set of towels. Can’t call the front desk phone was not working. So we have to walk to the other building to ask for towels.

Spend a little more to stay somewhere else.
Do not stay here! Spend a little more to stay at a better hotel. The place is not taken care of. Even with the the room being clean, it just looked dirty. The handle inside the shower was broken, there was a broken outlet, and the fridge was inside the closet. The curtains were dusty and the lighting in the room sucked. Probably so you wouldnt see how unmaintained it really is. Do not stay here. I stayed bases on their goof recent reviews. . Never again.

6/10 Good

After my family and I checked in we immediately felt that our hotel room was muggy, hot & uncomfortable. We approached the front desk with the problem. They advised us that all we had to do was to plug in the AC unit. After plugging it in the unit continued to make a noise but absolutely no output. With a 2, 9 & 10 year old complaining all night I went down again. Nothing was done. Prior to checking out I explained our situation and the front desk apologized. . That’s about it.
