They were very rude, and at one time I went to ask for a new pillow because mine was covered in stains and the woman... More

Everything was ok, Room, bus (except for the air freshener on the bus) which bothered my allergies. I swear everyone who still smokes is obnoxious. Unlike Canada in USA smoking is permitted everywhere except restaurants. I didn't like and ashtrays everywhere in the casino. I do like the complementary drinks (non alcoholic) Room was nice had a microwave and fridge... More

I live a little over an hour from this casino and hotel so I have been here numerous times. This time I decided to stay overnight. I have been to numerous events here and the event staff is great and those are always run smoothly. The casino is just another casino. They are all the same to me. The restaurants... More

Had to call and have them remove the trash and deliver more coffee. The next day house keeping did make up my room. The hotel is really spread out. many of the rooms... More
