Few tables and not much action

This is where we stay but always went to other casinos because of the few tables and poor pay-out. Need to add more card tables.

Outside of the days that Bingo was played, there was never anyone in the casino. They gave you a $50 match play coupon but there were so many restrictions on how you could use it, it really wasn't worth it. If you're looking for true casino action, this isn't it.

Average Casino, they had bingo everyday at 2pm which was fun to do for a change. Big prize money. Slot machines were average and at least it was well ventilated and not smokey.

Staff were helpful and cheerful. Decor is typical casino but attractive. We were staying at the Occidental so it was nice to pop in for a few minutes at the craps table while you had time to waste.

Did not stay at this casino. They were in the middle of a bingo game when we walked in. People were sitting at machines and using the stool next to them as a table. It was sloppy looking with people all over the place. Turned around and walked out. Not my kind of casino.

Casino was almost impossible to stay in because the smoke was so heavy between cigarettes and cigars. Would not go back again and I am a former smoker.

The machines are old, there is literally NO fun vibe here. The only time it was busy was when they were offering bingo.
