Decent location for the price. Room was clean Staff was very rude. Beds are very small and uncomfortable. No hair dryers in rooms.
Pre-booked price was somewhat reasonable.(possibly too much) Staff was freindly and helpful during the days, (tattooed escaped convict looking guy at check-in was not pleasant at all though). -Shower alternated between blistering hot to ice cold. -A/C barely kept room below sweltering. -Not even a bed cover, just 2 sheets w/ a thin blanket between. -Complimentary coffee at Reg. office only. Enough to fill about 4 or 5 of the tiny styrofoam cups they provide. -No place to prepare or sit to enjoy your coffee either. -Got there a day early, and was charged nearly double the online pre-booked price for the extra night.
Close to the strip. If you get in late at night, the guy in the front desk will say your card is getting declined for the $50 deposit so you need to leave a $100 deposit cash.
The ease to RTC public transportation to the Strip was totally necessary as the escalators on ALL four sides of the intersection of SLV & Tropicana Blvds were closed for refurbishment and these old knees can't handle 4 or more flights of stairs. Especially on hot afternoons. Otherwise it's usually an easy 10 minute walk west to the Strip. Took the 119 south from the other side of Motel 6 to Mandalay Bay to start my day there. Staff and housekeeping were pleasant and friendly, and they did their best with this old, but convenient property. Also easy access to McCarren Airport, a 5-minute Uber ride to the departure gate. Only reason to stay here is easy access to Strip on foot or by bus. If you wish to be pampered stay at any of the MGM properties on the Strip. Another plus is Coco's Bakery Cafe in from of ABVI. They're open 24/7 and the food is reasonably priced and good. Since I only paid $35/night without any additional resort fee add-ons, I wasn't expecting much in the way of amenities. This place is absolutely free of any luxuries, expect hostel-like bare minimum furnishings, i.e., a bed and some fresh linens, that's it. The WiFi was never available on my side of the building (facing the airport). Airport noise could not be heard over the old noisy A/C unit, the only good thing about the A/C as it was never truly cold enough to cool the room. Since I had to leave early for a 6am flight out of Las Vegas, you would think hot water for shower would be plentiful at 4am. Nope! I let the water run for 15 minutes and still no hot water. Even at a hostel you'd get hot water and a decent amount of water pressure. So if you stay here, hope you don't mind cold showers from time to time. As a side note, after midnight and during the overnight hours, the streetwalkers seem to move off Las Vegas Blvd and onto Tropicana. Generally the property seems safe enough if you keep aware of your surroundings but otherwise could feel unsafe and unclean. But since I paid hostel prices to stay off-strip for two nights it was acceptable compromise.
It's walking distance from the strip great place to stay if you only want a place to sleep and recover from partying My room was separated but my another door and I could clearly hear the people next door as they could hear me. Rooms are crowded if you get a double bed, once you open the door to are paractically on top of a bed. No fridge, no microwave. AC needs to constently be on or else the rooms smell. Bathrooms are old and nasty they need repairs. Some electrical sockets don't work.
Poor customer service
Nothing Everything. Upon arrival receptionist inform me that there was no room for me and to contact the company i booked it thru cause it wasn't their problem. The lobby smells bad and hotel looks really scary. You see lots of drunks with protitutes in and out, doesn't feel or seem safe to stay there especially with children, and it wrecks!!!
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Outside perimeter could use so attention.
Even though older hotel and furniture clean room. The bathtub was cleaned spotless. Suggest to roach spray the laundry room. I went to get ice and seen one running on washer.
The only good thing about this place is the location. Really close to the MGM grand hotel ( walking distance) A/C never worked properly, the tv is an old box and remote control never worked. The whole room is outdated ... Room is very small. The light in the restroom stop working.
Pre paid stay an they we're fully booked fit understand why they will let you pre pay your stay an be fully booked! Couldn't get a room!
It's right off the strip and the staff was nice The room was small,the bathroom had barely any room to move around sheets had holes and the back exit to the street was blocked off so if you need to get to the back street you had to go around
Stayed here for a conference at the Tropicana. The proximity and price were good; other than that, it was pretty average. There was a lot of noise outside one night. I never called the office, and it kept up for some time, so I have to wonder what the security guard I saw earlier was doing right then.
The price. Clean room. Thin walls.
I didn't like that when walking to our room, by the stairs it was a strong smell of urine and that the A/C didn't work very well.
Clean and close to everything, the strip, MGM, bars, etc
I liked that the hotel was close to the strip, also a near by restaurant called CoCos was really delicious it smelled like sewage in the room
blow dryer, coffer maker, y fi small room, bathroom really small
The staff were helpful and the local restaurant was friendly with good service and tasty food,
Cheap and location Room was tiny bed was tiny
My girlfriend and I stayed for a week for a convention. We chose Howard Johnson because it was about 1/4 the cost of a normal casino/hotel on the strip, and all we needed was just a bed, a shower, a place to put our luggage, and for it to be clean. Howard Johnson met those requirements. There are no gambling machines either. This is a pure hotel, which I thought was a nice touch for Vegas. There is no breakfast. The rooms are small. The road you take to get to it doesn't register on GPS - instead it will tell you to take a different road but the hotel is blocked by a fence so you can't actually use that road, and the only entrance comes from a one-way street... If you take Uber/Lyft, make sure you call your driver to tell them where you are staying otherwise they will probably just follow the GPS and get lost. Other than that, this is a very cheap, clean, no-frills, clean hotel. You get what you pay for, but it will save you a ton compared to the major hotels if you stay for more than a few days.
The room was a good value. The pool area was well maintained. The area around the hotel is ope nto thru traffic which was a little unsettling. The carpets were worn and dirty. The room didn't have any trash cans. Maintenence doesn't appear to be a priority.
Price and location. Helicopters and airplanes heard throughout the day and night. Construction close by and heavy traffic to airport. Double beds only. Beds need upgrading, maintenance and cleanliness can improve.
