    Great management!

    Management was extremely helpful. Boosted my car off with a smile. Perfect budget stay, short 5 minute walk to casino.

    You get what you pay for as far as condition.

    Great Place to Stay

    This was a great stay. The room was close to the parking lot, bed was comfortable, wifi was reliable, and my partner and I got a good night's rest. Of course you can't expect 5 star experience (whatever that is), but for a ton of privacy, clean and comfortable room and bed, and the distance from there to the beach/shopping center, for the price ($70~/night) it was awesome!

    The continental breakfast was limited (cereal, orange juice, alright cinnamon buns, oatmeal, coffee, tea, apples and bananas). It was probably first-come, first-serve, yet no one told us of this policy or when it started (7am-9am). I recommend staff to tell us when it is available and what is included. I wouldn't pay extra for the breakfast.

    The location was great

    It has a musty smell, the bottom sheet was not a fitted sheet so if I turned over I would take the sheet with me and be laying on the bare mattress :(. The bathrooms were not super clean.

    Perfect for a place to sleep.

    It was economical and ideal since we just wanted a place to sleep while visiting. Check-in and check-out were very smooth. Beds were fine. Included a pass to the nearby beach.

    Only a few things were not good: The window blinds didn't darken the room very much, and the provided breakfast in the morning was very basic: two cereals, some donuts, and coffee, milk, & OJ.

    The location was very close to the casinos

    We ordered a room with a Jacuzzi tub and the tub was broke but they gave us our money back so that was OK

This beautiful lake straddles the border of California and Nevada, it is located in the mountains and has lots of recreational activities regardless of the season.
