Nice but smokey

We are staying at this resort for first time and it's good to have a medium size casino inside hotel but the smoke bothers me. Maybe they could up grade on a better ventilation... read more

Couldn't stand the cigarette smoke, couldn't stay and spend money......sorry. Very disappointing as a few evenings before we'd enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Alahamba.

We are staying at this resort for first time and it's good to have a medium size casino inside hotel but the smoke bothers me. Maybe they could up grade on a better ventilation system for those who don't want ta smoke but want to support the business. The staff was friendly and casino is clean.

I went there in December and won some money at three card poker. I only played two hands and I tipped the dealer $100 and left. My husband and I came back a few days later and were playing three card poker again. The dealer was not the same dealer as the night before. The dealer this night was Glenda.... More

Small, nothing impressive. The place has serious mileage, so much so that you cannot even read the dollar amount on the chips. Many slots were out of service. Overall attitude in place is lacking and many dealers are half dead. Waitresses are semi-attentive. Decor is horrible and lighting sucks the life out of you. With all of the casino options... More

I like to play poker every so often and like to see new poker rooms. The room here is nothing special, just a few tables sectioned off from an empty casino. There was only one table running when I walked in around 9pm (4-8 limit?). They soon got a 2-5 NL going and there was some decent action. I felt... More

They have bingo at 4PM every day and twice on Thursdays. ~$8 buyin. They serve a small snack during bingo. One time it was an egg roll, today it was a finger sandwich. Find coupons for their $10 match on blackjack. Has a poker room and poker tournaments. Average casino. Not too big. Plenty of slots. No video roulette.

Have won more money at this casino than any others!Seems like the slots here are more loose than any others! Have been to most casinos on the strip and not gotten any results like the Excalibor.

It seemed every time I went to play there they had bingo games going on. Most players are sitting at the slots and all the table games with their bingo cards. They really need new machines, they are very old slot machines!

Average atmosphere in this casino. It is okay for poker players and also if you want to use the coupons in the newspapers (black jack)
