    I've heard it's not good, but haven't stayed there myself.

    Depending on the time of year they may get a decent deal at Tuscany. That place is much better.

    I've never set foot in the place but it gets a 2 1/2 rating out of 5 on Trip Advisor. And it has a $10 resort fee.

    Well, some years back it was on "Hotel Impossible" (https://lasvegassun.com/vegasdeluxe/2014/feb/10/q-anthony-melchiorri-cleans-las-vegas-hotel-fortun/), so maybe it's gotten better. According to Trip Advisor, 26% of ratings were "fair", while 46% were "poor to terrible" and "28% were "excellent and very good". If your pal is just looking to stay in out of the rain, this might pass. But, as pointed out above, there might be better options. Remember, we live in a you-get-what-you-pay-for world. :cool:
