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.

The casino was a little larger than the one in our hotel at the Holiday Inn so it gave us more options. The other positive was the air handlers worked better. Our casino was very smokey but we didn't experience that at this casino.

My wife and I played the slots. Many of the machines were not playable. Would recommend the Marriott or Hyatt casinos as an alternative. The Excelsior needs a redoing.

Went here 2 different times because of the location and both times we had problems with the slots malfunctioning. Hopefully they will tend to the issues. The Hotel it was in was terrific and the staff were attentive they tried to fix them quickly for us.

Slot machines are so old. The dealers are rude and very unfriendly. Most people do not speak English or understand English. There are friendlier and nicer casino's in walking distance, don't waste your time or money.
