I requested a room with a Bellagio view, but away from the noise of the helicopters, but these rooms are close to the helicopters, so we were given one with a view of New York New York. However, to compensate, we were given -- at no extra cost -- a corner room, which was very large. It had two double beds, an armchair with stool, a table and two chairs. There were beautiful curtains at the windows and we had a very large bathroom.
The hotel has two small swimming pools, neither of which are heated. There are also plenty of pool towels, sunbeds, and tables and chairs available.
We stayed two nights and ate in the restaurant as they had an offer of a two-course meal for $9.99. The restaurant was quite small, but we didn't have a problem getting a table. The food was good, although the first night we had to send the soup back as it was cold. The second night, we added half a pound of snow crab legs for an extra $3.99. These came piled on a plate and were delicious.
This was our second visit to Vegas, the first being in August 2002 when we stayed at the HGV Club at the Las Vegas Hilton and we found it difficult to get somewhere to eat because of the queues, this year was better as it was later in the year and not quite as crowded and we would definitely stay there again if visiting for a couple of nights.

Our view was wonderful. We looked north up the strip and could see Belaggio, Treasure Island, Mirage, Paris, Aladdin, and the Venetian. We were also right next to a business that offered helicopter rides, so we did have to listen to copters taking off and landing until about 1 am, but it wasn't too bothersome.
We could see the pool from our window. There was nothing special about it, but there were a few people out enjoying the sun. I doubt the pool was heated as the only people we ever saw in it were kids who squealed as they took a quick dip and got out.
None of the eateries in the lobby looked inviting, but we did have fresh Krispy Kreme donuts one morning. My friend had a smoothie and said it was watered down and not very good. My orange juice was fine.
This is an ok place to stay if you're on a budget. The location for the price can't be beat, across the street from the Aladdin and next door to Excalibur!

There are two types of rooms a motel section, with two buildings and the tower rooms. I have stayed in the tower room. The rooms are above average in size with 2 double beds or a king size bed. There is a small table and two chairs, tv, but not other extra frills. (I believe they have recently added coffee makers, hair dryers, iron and ironing boards). The bathroom was the smallest I have seen in any hotel room, you almost have to step into the bathtub to get the door closed. Hopefully that was just in our room and is not the same in all of the rooms.
There is a small swimming pool, but it is not heated. We were there in April and it never did warm up enough to be useable.
There is a buffet, coffee shop, and a 24 hour deli. Tried the buffet and it was not very good, hot food was cool and undercooked eggs are the things that stand out in my mind. The deli was very good, and you could tell by the long line up. The deli has sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, desserts. A good value for fast food.
There is also a small casino, and a small showroom.
If the price were right I would not hesitate to stay here again as I really liked the location.
