Amenity Madness: The chunky black TV was a bit of a turnoff but it did have a game controller so you could play video games. We also like the little vanity nook next to the bathroom with a magnifying mirror and a plastic Bud Light ice bucket. The desk had plenty of outlets and if we were staying with a companion, we imagine he would have got a kick out of the armchair with its very own side table (for beers, we presume.) In the bathroom were Hooters-branded toiletries. We decided to use our own instead. And we're sorry to report, but there was no mini-bar.
Internet Connect: Hooters had some crazy internet connect contraption on the desk that offered an ethernet hook up with pricing of $4.95 for an hour, $8.95 for 12 hours and $14.95 for 24 hours. Ugh. But we have to give points for plenty of outlets at the desk.
Casino and Eats: Ok, this casino is not very cool but it is simple and free of fuss. It's also very small so it's very navigable. One thing you should be aware of: it is full of dudes, so if you want to "creep" for hot girls here you may want to wait outside the Men of X show. As for food, there's a Hooters restaurant and the Mad Onion restaurant which has a cheapo breakfast of $2.99 from 12am to 6am.
What We Liked: The room was clean, spacious and smelled great. And as a lady traveling alone, we felt safe. For $20, this is a steal.
What We Didn't Like: This is the one big flaw with the room and probably why we won't stay at Hooters again unless we can get black-out drunk--the noise. We expected drunk people noise or pool party noise but we got none of that. Instead we got HVAC, machinery kind of noise that woke us up at 2am and continued for an hour. We looked out our window and saw that we are directly over some machinery system powering the hotel. (Yeah, we have no idea what to call this.)
The drones made us miserable and we almost thought about spending the rest of the night in our car. And it wasn't like we could complain about it. What would the hotel say? "Oh, let us just power down the casino so you can get some sleep." Not gonna happen.
Fortunately, the noise did dissipate and by 4am we were sound asleep again. Until we had to wake up at 6am. Also, planes are taking off and landing constantly at nearby McCarran during the daytime so if you want peace and quiet, bring earplugs.
Bottom Line: You cannot go wrong with $20 rooms. All in all, with the resort fee and taxes, our room cost $30.80. (The resort fee included nominal stuff but the two small bottles of Hooters Calendar Girl water were a nice touch.)
