Thanks for staying with us. We work hard to make sure our guests are happy and we appreciate your feedback!

5 out of 5
Because of the homeless in the area, security does not tolerate any person seen loitering. And that includes people waiting to check in. Harassed multiple times, finally had to talk to head of security. Still was approached several times while I was waiting. But after all that drama was over, I enjoyed my stay. Room is more than adequate given the age of the property. Very clean, best way to describe is antique. Again for the price, I think it’s extremely adequate. Keep an eye on your children. Homelessness is a very real problem in Las Vegas

I loved the in room water, coffee maker and refrigerator. This is something that is rare in Vegas and makes this hotel unique. Was just enough away from freemont that we could sleep and it has a delicious on site restaurant.

I reserved and pre-paid one of the old school rooms, but got upgraded to the cabana suites across the street, I suppose because they did not have available what I reserved. I was a little disappointed about that. The room I ended up with was nice, but very very small. It was quiet and easy to get good sleep. I would stay there again.
