... on a couch pretty much pased out on Nathan's lap, then I needed to vomit so I was walking to the toilet but I kept getting disorientated and couldn't find them so by now I had already spewed a little in my hand haha, gross!! But it just kept coming so I ended up just letting it all out on the floor and it was red too I think cause I remember thinking that's weird I haven't had any red drinks haha, I thought I was sweet and no one seen me and I found the toilet and ...
... God has such amazing things for us to see and learn from in this world! The rocks are mostly sandstone (with the pink or red color coming from iron oxide, the black streaks are from manganese oxide) or limestone. The patterns of the layers are beautiful to see! These pictures can never do them justice. You have to see them in person sometime!
The road through the park ...
... crabby at this time.
Passing through the Flamingo, we were surprised how shabby and seedy this part of the strip appeared, especially in contrast to the Bellagio and our own Mandalay Bay. The casino that housed the car collection, The Quad, looked even worse. However, the car collection was very well done. Mac enjoyed looking at a variety of antique cars, taking lots of pictures on his phone. Poor Josie was pretty ...
... a friend and waiting for him to return to the complex. We sat in the shade and hung out with them for a bit until Ali pulled up and, after finding out we could not find it, laughed immensely due to the location being 2 seconds away from his flat. After walking there, we definitely felt like fools. We had a small swim as we had to get ready for a pool party on the strip that Ali had arranged for us to get into for free (the ticket would have been $120 ...
... start on our next destination..... Vegas baby!! The drive there was absolutely beautiful, the desert mountain ranges are austere and majestic. Such a captivating drive. On a side note, a lady at a petrol station told us to stay awake since the drive was so long and boring. She has obviously never travelled north of joondalup. The drive in the Jetta was nice and smooth. Approaching Vegas we saw a giant solar panel farm, which was incredible. That whole section was such a trip ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Red Roof Inn Las Vegas
I booked this hotel because I thought it would be clean and new because it was only two years old. What a mistake. This hotel was one of the dirtiest places I have ever stayed. The walls were dirty, the comforter had some white stain on it, and there was blood or some red stuff on the toilet handle. Then, around 1000 p.m. a whole colony of ants proceeded from a crack in the baseboard, up the wall, and into a crack on the kitchenette. There were stray ants crawling all over the place. I read an earlier review of the Comfort Inn that stated they too had run into ants but I thought how bad could the ants really be. I paid $62 and received a valuable lesson about the Dumpfort Inn. Unless you get an awesome deal and bring your own can of Raid and Lysol you would be better off staying at one of the hundreds of other hotels available nearby.
A nice place close to the action
This is a nice hotel in an excellent location. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the staff are very courteous and helpful. The hotel is close to the airport and the overhead noise from the incoming planes might be a factor for some. However, the noise stops in the late evening and doesn't continue again until the early morning. Even then it is not that bad. I never had any problems sleeping and i am a light sleeper. Having a small kicthenette really helps on saving money. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Comfort on a budget
I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It is off the strip, so it's not as crowded and much quieter. The free airport/strip shuttle was very convenient. Nice continental breakfast as well. Good for carbo-loading before your strip journeys. Having the mini kitchen helps as well. When I wanted something else for breakfast, or some microwave popcorn, I can just heat it up with ease. I'm planning a girls week out trip and we're definitely staying here. One reviewer mentioned the keycard constantly losing its code and I was told that it's due to the hidden detectors outside every casino. They sometimes demagnetize the cards. I just made it a point to get a new one before going to my room each time. For some extra security in the strip casinos, it's a minor inconvenience.
Rooms were nice, clean, with a small kitchen area. Shuttle service was efficient. The big disappointment was the breakfast, which was one of the reasons we chose the hotel. We stayed for two nights. The first morning, there was no orange juice or tea available, and no butter. The second morning, only orange juice that was frozen solid in small containers was available. Pay the extra and stay on the strip the next time.
Very pleased with this hotel
I was very happy when I opened the door to the room of my hotel. Maybe it's because lately I'd only been staying at hostels, and this was actually a HOTEL. But more than that.. I only paid about $75 a night and had two beds (I'd requested two although it was just me), air conditioning, tv, coffee maker, cupboards, fridge, microwave, bathroom, a separate sink and mirror.. all the usual amenities, I know, but I was just surprised to find all this at such a low price. It was very spacious, very clean and well-kept. The most negative thing was walking back to my room at nighttime and having crickets jump up all over me, plus 2 crickets I found chirping in my bathroom! I didn't mind though; nice-looking pool too that I didn't get the chance to go into. It took me about 45 mins to walk to the strip, which isn't very far, esp. considering lots of people rent cars, etc. Also there are casinos on this street if you don't want to wait to get to the strip so it's in the middle of nowhere. I would definitely make this one of my first choices again when going to Las Vegas.
Mostly OK, But....
The place was mostly fine, if understaffed. But, we left a bag in our room and, though the hotel told us they had it and promised to send it back to us, they sent us the wrong item and, after assuring us they had the right one, never followed through and ignored phone calls to the manager. So, though we would have liked it, now we're cheesed off.
Good value for money
Good value for money... Fridge, microwave, and stovetop in room saved
us some money. Supermarkets were about 1 mile away on Tropicana Ave.
Nice pool area, fine for families and we were there during spring break week. About one mile from the strip but motel has a shuttle to MGM grand and the airport.
Continental breakfast, better selection some days than others but we
saw coffee, english muffins, bagels, danishes, cereals, apples,
Hotel is on airport approach but the noise never woke me up.
Only beef was room keys kept losing their coding and we had to go to
the front desk and get them reswiped almost daily.
Nice room and good value
Spent MLK weekend here and was impressed with our room. Not only did it have the now standard coffee maker but it also included a mini kitchen with a microwave, stove top and refrig. The rates were a bargain at $59/night and the location is across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel. Be sure and ask for a room that does not face Paradise Road to avoid any road noise.
Great location and value offstrip
Nothing beats the comfort inn for a last-minute weekend trip to vegas.
The rooms are clean, although the bathroom is tiny and the water pressure is not the best. It is perfectly situated across from the Hard Rock and right next to Club Paradise. The pool is really small, but there are usually some strippers in thong bikinis lounging nearby. The best thing of all is the $59 military rate on weekends. We stay here all the time.
A pleasant surprise
This motel has been completely remodeled. The rooms are tastefully decorated with cherry wood furniture. It offers kitchenettes with coffee maker and dishes/silverware. A free continental breakfast is included. The rooms were exceptionally clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. It does not include a casino, but is right across from the Hard Rock Casino. The drawbacks are that the rooms are open to the outside and the approach to the airport is very close (planes buzzing overhead). There is a wall around the facility for security.
