We are on the way to Las Vegas. This is the 3 star hotel next to the restaurant we plan to go. The receptionist called my name without check in, she was very friendly and she even told us that she upgraded our room to the suite. We also get free breakfast. The room was very clean, the shower pressure was good too. The AC wasn’t stop during the night, but for the 3 stars hotel with the price we paid, this was a great deal.
Really friendly, helpful staff - reception, housekeeping and management - and a beautiful pool area, comfortable room and everything immaculately clean, all at a very reasonable rate. Highly recommended, especially at the price. I’ll be back!
