if you want fun and gaiety, this is not for you. if you want excellent cheap clean motel, this is for you. not for 1st time vegas visitors, more for old vegas pros like me. bhx bus stop is 1 minute walk, that takes you down the boulder strip where vegas`s 2 best casinos are, boulder station and sams town. or bhx goes to the main bus station with great access to anywhere in vegas. from motel its is 8 minutes walk to the heart of fremont st, with all its great casinos and great cheap buffets, main street station buffet is the cheapest and best in vegas. if your adamant on going to the vegas strip, the deuce bus stop is 6 mins walk. area around motel is quiet, can be construed as lifeless and scummy, but thats a bit harsh.
