My wife began to read the reviews on the way to the hotel. We began to make alternate plans. The old reviews were horrible. (We stayed here 30 years ago.) We were greatly impressed with the cleanliness. (My wife is a germophobic.) Would defintely recommend! Would gladly stay again.

Would stay here again with a creek side room, and view of the town. The rooms in back are just views of the mountain side and trees. Room 844 had a leak from the jacuzzi because the floor was wet between it and the bed. We never used the jacuzzi. Elevators are crazy slow but all in all, an ok...

From check in to the continental breakfast on the morning we left, the employees were friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and our room on the 8th floor was spacious. Our creekside room had a good view of downtown from the balcony. Small refrigerator, microwave, and coffemaker were really convenient. The Edgewater is only a block off the main...

The Edgewater is an older building but is very clean and in good shape. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a covered parking garage and is in a good location right off the main parkway but close enough to walk to many shops and places to eat.

We stayed here because our regular hotel was closed due to smoke damage. We were pleased with how clean and quiet Edgewater is, even though they had a couple of groups of student groups staying there. They're a block away from the middle of the strip with a mountain behind and a stream in front. They have covered parking and...

Thank you for posting regarding your stay after the devastating November fire. We're so fortunate that the Edgewater had minimal damage compared to other properties. Hopefully we will have our pool renovation completed when you are next in our area. It's going to be wonderful. We look forward to seeing you soon. Best Regards,

Older hotel that could use some updating. But the views are great, the room was clean and the staff was friendly. I had no problems with the food or the internet during my stay. The hotel definitely has location going for it. Right in the middle of town and close to everything.
