This off-Strip hotel has affordable prices, a rooftop pool with a great view, and kitchenettes in the rooms for travelers who would prefer to spend their money on experiences rather than pricey restaurant visits.Recommended for:

Cheap joint in the middle of the strip where you can cook in your room if you want... Its virtually walking distance to anywhere on the strip and a short cab ride to fremont street. It is also located fairly close to the airport. So it has a lot going for it location wise.
However it is a timeshare facility and back when I was married, well I was the co-owner of a timeshare here... Let me just say that the facilities are acceptable but the service is substandard. The parking situation is a royal PITA and just pray you are not trying to get your car during the rain.
PRO TIP: Request the highest floor you can with a street view (looking at the carriage house or between buildings sucks).
Their are multiple banks of elevators here which helps dramatically. None the less what they really need are a bunch more of those bell hop carts and a proper unloading/loading area. There isnt really a good spot to do it at.
NOW for the other side of this place. I went to a timeshare presentation here and got so jerked around by these guys that I got a bit upset to say the least. Consequently I got one of the timeshare guys bent enough that he wanted to fight. I was in total shock at that type of unprofessionalism. I highly suggest avoiding the timeshare presentation here if you can. These guys will try almost every dirty trick in the book and when you call them out on it, well they get seriously upset with you over it. I just am not one who is ok with being told one thing and given a complete bait n switch and then when I go to verify things, ohhh guess what... I catch them in the act. These guys are a master of that. I honestly think that kind of activity should cause someone to loose their job and or business license, unfortunately it does not.
Thank the good Lord I never ended up purchasing a place here and just the ex had one. I found out that the maintenance fees were almost the same cost as having a hotel for a week anywhere else on the strip. The only difference being a kitchenette that you had to clean the dishes in. Definitely not worth it. But the maintenance fees were over $500/yr for a 1 week stay. So if you do the math, to be a partial owner (granted with a tax deductable deed), and the ability to trade your week here for a week elsewhere, it costs $71.43 in maint fees per night for a 1 week stay and that is on top of the $20-$35k initial investment... It just doesnt sound that worth it to me... what about you?Recommended for:

This place was hard to find the first time, being tucked behind the busy Hawaiian Marketplace. It sits right in the middle of the Strip, though, providing easy access to the resorts, casinos, restaurants and clubs on both sides. On the first floor is a very nice business center with computers, Internet access, printers and meeting space. The fitness center is vast, with an impressive array of machines and equipment, showers and a beverage refrigerator, but I was disappointed that it closes at 4 p.m. on Sundays. The rooftop pool, while on the small side, is simply gorgeous, with its roomy cabanas and garden landscaping. There’s even a grill guests can use while lounging poolside. The suite was very comfortable with a great big bed, dining table and living room. The bathroom tub was actually a whirlpool, complete with jets.Recommended for:

This is a timeshare but people who aren't timeshare holders can stay here. Typical timeshare setup, bedrooms and kitchen. The location is in the middle of the strip but you do have to walk inward to the hotel because the hotel is not exactly on the strip. There aren't lots of taxis or even taxis at all at this hotel. That's a downfall to staying here. Other than that, it's not bad!
