Ok first thing, it was a Friday night. Buses from the city come up. Main casino was so smokey I thought I would die. They do have a non-smoker area of casino. Not bad but very crowded limited selection of machines, slots are tight, and hard to find empty one. Very noisy. Downstairs bowling alley is nice.

Son went there to the restaurant with an old lady he knows for her birthday. She accidentally wet herself and the staff was so ugly that they threw her out of the restaurant before they were even finished with dinner and didn't allow them to stay. She is old...for crying out loud, give her a break! But they were stuffy... More

Love to enjoy the various dance bands that they have here on Friday and Saturday nights. The music is usually pretty good, there is no cover charge, and the atmosphere is always fun. And you can always find some good food at any of their dining choices.

Casinos on the top level. Bowling, restaurants, and a kid friendly arcade. The prizes are amazing and the games are really fun.

Nice Casino with a very large non-smoking section. Most games available with usual payouts. I actually like the bowling alley. New hotel looks nice and would be a good place to stay for a weekend to visit the Sonora sites and surrounding area. For golfers, there are three very nice golf courses nearby. I played Mountain Ranch. Not a hard... More

To break up the trip from the Eastern Sierras back to the San Francisco Bay Area, we have sometimes stopped here for an hour or two to have something to eat and "try our luck". Its a large casino with a variety of slots and table games. There is also an entertainment hall with concerts, etc.
