        Not much. We will not stay there again.

        The pool was closed. The manager could not speak english. The manager did not understand the billing rate. The internet price did not reflect a 10% tax nor tack on fees. Motel was noisy. The shower was very small. The continental breakfast was fast food packets.

        The drain did not work in the sink and the shower and the sink look dirty the towles were small and not very soft

        Good location in regards to stateline casinos and downtown shops.

        Next to main road through town - can be noisy during the day. Worn and spotty carpets in some places.

        It was beautiful the photo that I seen in a computer but my first night I didn't sleep because something bitten on my legs and the second night it was nightmare I have a lot of bites by bedbugs. Eventhough they changed our room, my husband and I had bites by a bedbugs. We will never never never never again to stay in this hotel. The housekeeping very poor to clean the rooms. I like the location and the design but its dirty.

        I don't like the dirty rooms and a lot of bedbugs.

        I liked that they had a really cheap price on a Thursday night and the room was really clean.

        I didn't like the walls were a little thin and the outside needs a little facelift. But all in all its was worth it and we were happy!

        Price and location. Room was confortable and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful.

        No kleenex in room and the breakfast was a joke with s few small donuts and coffee.

        The location was good. Easy to get to the lake and the casinos.

        The condition of the carpet was bad. It's dirty and in need of replacement. It gives the motel a bad appearance.

        The front office gentleman was very helpful, I booked on our way to the hotel and had zero problems checking into the room, once there he let me upgrade to a jaccuzzi suite at an awesome deal of a price.

        Noisy air conditioner

        The guy at the counter was nice.

        It was not a good stay. It took 5 hours to warm up the room. We left early. It's good if you are on a budget and don't care about comfort.

        Clean, cheap, close to the gondola and the casinos.

        Steep ramp into parking lot is dangerous when it's icy.

        Just a place to stay.......it was somewhat of a let down.... No where near as nice at the last Vagabond in Los Banos ca.

        Old, walls looked old and dirty. Bathroom was small and not comfortable.

        I liked the location

        I would like new towels because the towels there looked really old

        Its near to raileys & restaurants.

        The hot water sucks & rooms are kinda old need for renovations.

        There were bugs in the shower, the toilet did not flush properly, the sink did not drain well, and the rug was dirty.
