It is just by the beach, and the view is excellent. The remodeling is under way, and looks old but well managed.

    Nice location close to the beach and the casino !

    Good room for the price. Well located on the hotels strip, walkable distance to the Casino and the beaches (less than 5mins). Air Conditioning should be looked at, but other than that the room was spacious and great view. Thanks, Jeffrey P (Canada)
