      Clean good size room. Excellent price for weekend. Very nice staff. They actually saw the "special request" for a vegan breakfast I put in when booking the room, and hooked me up! I've paid over a grand for air fair and had my vegan request ignored.Great location for snowboarding at Heavenly and only one block from the first big casino, the one with the Hard Rock Cafe in it. I don't gamble but the clubs and bars in the casinos are sweet, Club Opel!

      The heater is hella loud so you have to turn up the old ass tube tv all the way to hear it and then it goes off and the tv is blasting. However, considering the price I paid that's not a big deal. The lighting is kinda stupid, you can't turn the lamp by the bed on and off independently, if you want it on you have to keep the blinding ceiling lamp on and you have to get out of bed to shut off the lights. That would be an easy fix to adjust the wiring.

      I made a mistake and booked a room for 2 people, and selected one bed. I checked-in and asked for two beds. The receptionist said, you booked for one, and it would cost an additional $10 a night for two beds. He was great, and gave me the room at no additional charge! Highly recommend.

      The fan in the bathroom.

      Value for money and location is very good, easily accessible to gondola/ ski sport, casinos, Nikki's cafe

      It was very cozy. It made the trip very enjoyable.

      The rooms were a little too small. The bathrooms were a kind of clostrofobic. And finally, the heaters were too loud.

      The price was very reasonable: $57.00 for two nights.

      My stay at this hotel was remarkable. It stays in a very good location, the breakfast was great and the room was very spacious and clean. The price is its bigger benefit, because, due to what the hotel offers, is extremely cheap.

      Good location, free access to private beach very close to the motel.

      No spare soccets for charging anything, lot's of noise in the room, staff seemed always in a hurry to get back to their private life (although they were friendly enough, just very hasty).

      Good value for the money, close to casinos. It's out dated but the owners are working on improving the hotel.

      Pool was not heated.
