It had all the table games, a poker room and a sports book. The dealers were hit or miss. Some were friendly but others didn't say much.

This casino has not changed in the last 10 years, it still has a very strong smoke odor, the people are not too friendly and most of the machines are the older type.

Anytime I've been to this place, the slots don't seem to have a lot of variety and if you go during bingo, you're lucky to find a slot machine. Slots seem crammed very tightly and (imho) it's better to just walk thru and avoid this one.

I find this casino depressing, it's 1970 feel is a drag and makes you want to leave. I love the holiday inn and wish I did not have to walk to another establishment. However, I may be a bit bitter due to not ever getting one single card while playing blackjack there.

This is where the serious players play. If you're a wannabe because you just watched Rounders again, think twice. If Teddy KGB had a place on Aruba, this would be it. Act accordingly ;-)

This casino is small without much variety of slot machines. There are only a few tables. Since we were staying at the Holiday Inn, we wandered in at night. Each night, there was very little activity except in the back sports book room. Didn't spend more than 20 minutes in there and had no luck.

Small and didn't pay very well. Wasn't very crowded but visited the shops at the Holiday Inn while there.

Terrible! Do not waste your time. The place was full of bingo players when we got there- a bit distracting. But worst of all were the slots. Many were just plain out of order. I had to get the "attendant" 3 times because others just either froze or wouldn't take the credit slip. Bathroom was disgusting. Even though we were... More

This place wasn't that busy. The dealers were friendly and most in the casino were there to have a good time. Servers were fun.

This was an average casino. Not too big and quiet both times I was there. Seemed a bit dated. There was a half of room of tables. Played some slots and won a few bucks.
