Most guests noted that the rooms offered a lot of comfort and convenience, since there is ample space to move around, store your belongings and the full-size kitchen comes with everything you might need like a microwave, a stove, a dishwasher, utensils and cleaning supplies.
Pleasant pool area
The hotel pools were reported to be quite nice and fun to swim in all day and night yet the area was also quiet enough to be able to relax. Guests also liked the fact that there were hot tubs and barbecue grills around them.
Guests noted that the staff was friendly, with the front-desk employees being knowledgeable and efficient, and maintenance and housekeeping staff being prompt and courteous.
Location not ideal
If you're in town to get the true Las Vegas experience with all the gambling and entertainment that can be found along the Strip, guests noted that this hotel would be too far away. While there is a shuttle service that runs to the Tropicana and the Mirage where you can have some fun at the slot machines, guests found the hourly service to be too much of a hassle and stated you'd be better off renting a car, especially on the weekends when the service stops at midnight.
Some housekeeping complaints
A few guests noted that the rooms weren't spotless, the carpets emitted an unpleasant odor and some leftover trash was found underneath the furniture.
Several guests pointed out that the rooms didn't have Wi-Fi, as that could only be accessed in the lobby. Fortunately the hotel is in the process of adding in-room Wi-Fi access to its amenities.
