We stayed here 2 times on our way to and back from Las Vegas. Both times the rooms were clean and cozy. The place easy to find. There are multiple food options at walking distance. My kid liked the waffles at breakfast.

Looks like they have changed the name since we stayed in August 2016 - used to be the 'Historic Downtowner Inn'. Positive: It is cheap, the air-conditioner works quietly and effectively, the bedding was clean, and the bath has new tile, new tub, and old leaky faucets. The furniture is what I’d call “whatever”. There are new electronic locks on...

This hotel is under reconstruction. Some rooms are completely renovated and looking very good and are really comfortable. Hallways are old and dirty but don't be discouraged. Lift was a bit scary - like in a horror movie :-)
