    Anyone ever visited here? Cant ever remember seeing it mentioned before.

    Looks like it is behind The Wynn golf course.

    My dad stayed here years ago before I started going to Vegas and it is not too far from where I am staying in May. To be honest I love exploring off strip casinos even if just for an hour. Just wondering if maybe it is worth popping in for a bit or is there basically nothing there. Sure my old man said the steaks were good there (but any steak in the U.S tastes loads better than here).

    It's a budget motel. The "casino" is a few video poker and keno slot machines. Not worth stopping, I guess if you happen to be driving by and want to add this place to the list of places you've been in Vegas you could pop in.

    I stayed here before. Not a bad place to stay, the rooms aren't too bad, with a separate bedroom from the living room and a kitchenette area (but no utensils) with a fridge.

    Like vic said, this is a budget motel. No real casino but there are slot machines around so not really worth stopping by unless you just want to check out the place.

    We stayed here in 2001. The rooms are fine.

    If you're going to check out the casino, don't bother. It's tiny and smoky. We went in last year to see how it had changed, and it's quite depressing. On the plus side, they will give you $10 free play for signing up for a players card. On the minus side, there are no machines worth playing.

    Just FYI, Booking.com says that there is a $5 a night resort fee. No parking fee as far as I can see.

    I stayed there about 5 years ago.

    Yup, any fleabag motel can be considered a "resort".

    Not that this place is a fleabag motel or is a dump. It isn't that bad a place to stay at and is close to the convention center. No, the rooms may not be casino/hotel quality but I figure it is just like a motel 6 or best western. In fact the place used to be called Best Western Mardi Gras before someone bought out the place.

    I stayed there during the January Electronics show (CES) a few years ago. It was very convenient, about a 10 minute walk to the convention center. There is a McD's a few doors down and during a time when room rates are outrageous I was able to get decent nightly rates when most places were over $100 a night.
