Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cristallo Rimini
I'm really not picky and I don't need a luxury hotel to enjoy myself on vacation, but this motel was really awful. It urgently needs to get renovated. I admit it was clean, but then again, everything was so old (the bathroom etc) and therefore gross. I didn't feel comfortable at all. We paid $70 for the night, which was good for Labor Day weekend. I guess it's a good place if you really don't care about how the place looks like. In the future, I think I rather pay a little more and have a decent hotel.
The Somerset was a great deal for the price, it has definetely seen better days, but it was clean and neat. The pool was great although it could use some new chairs. The rooms were large and the airconditioning worked. nice little kitchen and comfortable beds. What more do you need? The strip was a mere five minute walk. It was quiet and definitely a great deal, would stay there again anytime.
Outstanding Value for Money
In my opinion the Somerset offers outstanding value for money, especially if you stay 7 days or more. If, like me, you want a clean hotel room to sleep and relax in but don't want to pay for extras or a view then this is the one. The front desk is open 24 hours and I found the staff friendly and helpful. Admittedly the motel rooms are not decorated in a modern style and the TV reception is limited to around 4-6 channels but the room was huge and had an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, a kitchennette and was very spacious, all for around $230 dollars per week including tax. I live in the UK and at current exchange rates thats less than ?20 per night. Try to book anywhere in New York City for under ?60 a night. Finally the Strip and any ammenity you could reasonably expect are just a ten minute walk away. A jewell in the crown of Las Vegas for the budget conscious traveller like me.
If you want to be very close to the Strip and want something better than Motel 6 and Travelodge. This is your place. It is an older 60's "Jetsons" style hotel that is unique, clean, w/a nice kitchenette. Best bang for your buck in my opinion...Phil
Not that great
I did not think this hotel was that great. The lobby smelled like an ashtray to begin with. It was all I could do to hold my breath while checking in and then out. The rooms were OK, but could use some remodeling. The TV only received about 5/6 channels and only two came in really good. I've been in other Vegas hotels where they get 30 channels clearly. The good thing about the hotel is that they offer a weekly rate, considering most people who visit Vegas are there for a week and most hotels on the Strip only offer Sunday to Thursday rates and go up a lot on Fri and Sat. But still I would recommend you go across the street to the Greek Isles Hotel or over to Blair House Suites before I would recommend this hotel.
Great price...for the budget traveler
The Somerset is the best deal in town. All the other places are all decked out and fancy but the somerset is nice and quiet and in walking distance to everything you need in Vegas. :-) Why pay $400.00 a night for a room when you can pay way less at somerset and use the extra money to have a great time in Vegas...Thumbs up here....Plan on staying for New Years....2004..
Not too bad for the price
This place has definitely seen better days, a long time ago. The hallways had a very strong, strange odor. The bathroom sink was clogged, but at least there was another sink in the fully equipped kitchen. The room was large with dated furnishigs, but clean. The thing I liked best about the room was the great view of the famous "Stardust" sign. The motel is within easy walking distance of the Strip.
Nightmare at Somerset
It was about 3 or 4 a.m. we were sleeping and all the sudden heard the door pop open. We looked up and a guy we've never seen before popped his head into the room. Before we got a chance to say anything to get up he disappeared. We felt like we were going to be robbed. The staff at the Somerset acted like they didn't care when we told them, they just blew it off like nothing. I will never stay there again.
Take your money and stay elsewhere!!
Great stay at Somerset House
The room was huge with 2 queen beds and a kitchen. Its been a couple years since I stayed there but would stay again. Room was clean and the maids were friendly. Easy to come and go and just a few steps from the bus stop.
Good times at the somerset
Great location and loved the kitchenettes. Great for families. Look forward to returning soon.

Time to say "Good-bye" to Andrew, Sara and Emerson. We will miss them.
As we drove down the mountains, we could see the first dusting of new snow on the Wasatch Mountains! Definitely time to leave.
Drove towards Las Vegas, on the I15. Drove past Fillmore, first capital of Utah after Brigham Young arrived in 1850. Dry desert country until we got south of Cedar City. Passed the turning to Kolob Canyon and Zion NP, another circle completed. Brief cross into Arizona - red ...
... people-watched and took in a street performer's magic act. Kayla and I got a couple touristy photos taken with the Coke bear and did one of those photo booth things in the M & M store.
Finally, we made it to the Venetian so we take a ride on a Gondola. It was about 7:45pm when we got in line for it and we had to wait about 15-20 minutes just to buy tickets. We decided on the indoor ride and the next available ride wasn't until ...
... to the past few days. Today's journey has been bitter sweet. It's amazing having made so many memories but it's also really sad that the people I have been with all day, everyday for the last 26 days I am now having to say goodbye to. When we arrived at the hotel there were lots of tears as everyone said goodbye to each other. It was really hard leaving everyone. At 4pm I made my way to see Anna at her hotel. We spent some time catching up quickly before we got ready for Taylor Swift. ...
... and underwear with holes in them and some bikini’s that are in bad shape. I all of a sudden have way more room in my bag and feel so much better for throwing stuff out that I have replaced already and have the intention to replace soon.
We checked out and drove to the grocery store to pick up some food for our next hotel stay and then went to Town Square for some shopping. We couldn’t check into our new hotel until 3pm, so we had a few hours up our sleeves. We ...
... forward to that!
The helicopter flight was absolutely amazing. I'm not sure any of the photographs do it justice due to low light and vibration but I'll take a closer look at them.
Today, Monday, we're heading out towards the Grand Canyon.
Las Vegas is an interesting place and I think we've done all we really want to do here. We're both ready for heading out!
