I enjoyed staying here. They have great free entertainment. The bar area was extremely nice. The restaurants had great food. Very pricey, but great experience. If you just want to get away for one night this is the place. It has everything you need. The room are very clean.

I really can't remember ever paying in advance for a Hotel room, checked in, and get leave as soon as I saw the room, all without requesting (demanding) a refund. It was that bad. Lumpy, nasty looking beds. I didn't stick around to survey the entire place...I just wanted to get out of there. This place looked like it was...

Wife booked a surprise overnight here. Room was awesome. Jacuzzi tub filled up quick and ran perfectly. Bathroom was huge and very nice. Bed was comfortable. Only complaint was that we couldn't rent an in room movie. Not sure if that was operator error or something they don't offer. But it was a great stay.

It was my first time at a casino and I was pleasantly surprised by how pretty and clean it was. The room was very spacious and the hot tub was amazing- they even provide you bath salts! The bar and the live shows were gray and we had lots of fun all around. You don't have to gamble to enjoy...
