The building dates from when motel rooms were small, bathrooms were tiny, and elevators were a luxury. That's why the present owners had to have an elevator installed a couple of years ago, and why the only place it could be added was at the opposite end of the building, as far away from the reception desk as it's possible to get.
But that's just about the only drawback to this beautifully-updated, well-maintained, and well-managed motel.
The breakfast is good as motel breakfasts go, with very good scrambled eggs and sausage links, and a good selection of the breads, fruits, and cereals that you would expect.
There is some baffling signage. What in the world does "Exit discharge this level 1 through 3" mean when it's posted at a stairwell? It is not at all obvious that the lobby is actually on level 2, so unless you notice the inconspicuous label stuck next to the elevator button you can easily find yourself exploring all three floors, looking for the lobby, like both my wife and I did. Somebody from management needs to take a hard look at their direction signs through the eyes of someone unfamiliar with the building's layout.
The rooms are newly updated, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Despite being next to a busy intersection, our room was quiet and we got a very good night's sleep.
A huge bonus is that a very, very good Italian restaurant, Chef Marc's Trattoria, is a short walk away, and if fine dining isn't what you want, there are good chain restaurants close by. less

Your kind review is certainly appreciated. We take all customer feedback very seriously, and we will be taking a look at how we can improve the directional signage throughout the hotel. Thank you for noticing that we have been hard at work the last couple of years making steady improvements to our hotel. We have many exciting projects to come, including a newly remodeled indoor pool set to be completed in the next few weeks. On your return, you will notice all new exterior signage and many ongoing improvements in our guest rooms. Thank you for your business and we look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Las Vegas.
