The wife and I visited this place for a relaxing day to do some Gambling and enjoy some good food. The facility was very smokey from the people smoking cigarets and the food was a 5 out of 10.

Closer than Reno, Tahoe and Vegas. With the money we save on gas and car rentals it makes this a very economical stay. AAA discounts. The rooms are quite luxurious. 24 hour workout room. Non-smoking slot area. The buffet is an affordable dining choice.

There are no Famous Celebrities like during the summer or fall. I am sure that they will have a great band on Friday night and Saturday night. As of right now they don't have anything posted.

Not really sure about service from the Bay Area .I know they run shuttles local areas. I would nothing that far. Only way to know would be to give them a call. Great place to game.
