Rooms are very basic and cleanliness was average. Furniture is old and beat up and bathroom is very small. The pool has green slime and the Vegas center restaurant had terrible service. I'd advise to book elsewhere, the extra $20 at a decent hotel would be worth it.

We stayed here when it was not totally converted to The Best Value Inn. Easy to get to when coming in from the East- you cannot miss the hotel. The lobby is large and the restaurant is just down from the lobby. Ignoring the theme and decor of the restaurant, the staff was good and friendly despite the fact that...

I had booked a room and cancelled back it in September when the hotel was still under the Howard Johnson (Wyndham) brand and noticed that my credit card was charged for the booking when I had previously cancelled my room. When I contacted Wyndham they provided horrible support and basically told me that the hotel was transferred to Canada's Best...

I am yet to find a more disgusting hotel room. The beds we're so extremely worn out, sagging in the middle and when i checked the manufacturer date it was October of 1990! A 26 year old mattress. I awoke with a serious back pain. The room smelled old and musty. The shower had mould all throughout it. The carpets...

It's really in very much in need of renovation, smell bad and very old. The water in shower was going on burning hot to cold, bed hard like hell and extension cord everywhere in the room.

The best thing about our stay was the breakfast and the bed. Breakfast was included in the price and we had 11 choices from the menu. The beds were comfortable and we both enjoyed a good sleep. The wifi was non-existent in our room. We were in a corner and the wifi would only appear at the door. The hotel...
