The A/C needs to be refreshed and the staff needs a lesson in good manners. Some staff were actually sitting on slot machine seats or leaning and talking in their native language which is fine by me but when they look at a person, laugh, point and start talking in their native language that just makes you feel as though...

This casino is old, tables are worn and the room is generally pretty dreary. I had some friendly dealers but the pay out was horrible. I played blackjack, and poker (Texas Hold'em). Be warned the poker room is full of rules, however, they are unspoken rules. for example: you get $40 extra chips in poker, HOWEVER, if you do not... More

This casino was very nice, had a large selection of machines and seemed like the only one you could win anything at or break even.

I visited several casinos in town and this was by far one of the worst. The atmosphere was smoke filled, dirty, old and poor payouts. I would agree with the seedy review. The casino is not well lit and a lot of the machines have broken parts. Video poker selection is very poor.

Lots of locals hang out there. Hard to get a drink most of the time. Slots are generally of the older type. Kind of seedy atmosphere.

We had the worst experience at the craps table here! None of the employees at the table seemed to understand the game, they kept counting the money and bets wrong, and totally slowed down the game and threw everyone off. Save your money and go somewhere else!

The staff at the Excelsior Casino are all friendly, helpful people from the dealers to the wait staff and the guys in the cage.They also have good entertainment almost nightly. It is such a shame that the owner of this casino has made it so player unfriendly. Every other casino that we visited from the Ritz to the Alhambra have... More
