                        • We liked the location, no food court/ just subway and the room was located in the main tower and was very clean and spacious. Hotel staff were friendly and very impressed and the price was GREAT. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were the best.

                          The decor was very old and out dated, the tub was outdated and the heat lamp didn't work right. Sheets were not changed for the week.

                        • A small desk area and bus is close by and a bargain as well. This place is awesome, the staff are very helpful and the room is quite small, the air condition is just next to the bed at the same height as bed. The food is good.

                          Cheap low budget hotel and bad customer service. The nasty tub, uncomfortable pillows and coffee maker dirty. Escalated to front desk manager.

                        • Nice casino in old town Las Vegas and location are amazing. Dollar value is the best, the rooms are clean, and the staff is friendly.

                        • The coffee shop is the best deal in town and perfect distance from Fremont, and all the fun places to check out there. Pavilion rooms are convenient.

                          Hotel staff not helpful at all.

                        • The area is much quieter than the Fremont Street Experience area, also, as stated above, the value is just tremendous and the rooms are spacious and clean and housekeeping staff is the nicest in Vegas.

                          Room did not smell fresh.

                        • Great location near fremont st, the accessabilty to freemont street and the other casinos, this was, hands down, the best value we've ever experienced in Las Vegas. The building looks southwesternly on the outside and inviting and warm on the inside, reasonable prices, loose slots and very friendly staff. The room is big, cocktail servers are good in the casino too.

                          Shower not working well, food is ok, Chinese good, breakfast taters bad.
