"Great location"
January 2020
The front desk staff is top notch. The location is perfect, central to all attractions. We had a medical issue and had to leave a day early and The Edgewater and Tripster were both awesome and very accommodating.

Tip: The back of the hotel is quiet but the view is a wall of dirt. The balcony does not offer a view, but is fine to sit for a bit.

"Little Retreat"
December 2018
This hotel is really nice. We stayed two nights just for a little get away weekend needing some fun and a break. We had a private balcony and fireplace. The pool and hot tub are amazing. Also it's just a few minutes walk from the main strip. We ate, shopped, and had a great time. The hotel staff was so nice and personable. We will be staying here again for certain.
