Not a large casino. They have two smoking areas, and a non-smoking area. All three are in different rooms.

Slots didn't seem to like us. Lots of penny machines... That are more like dollar machines. Couldn't find any quarter machines and there are no tables. It's a small Indian casino in a cute little town near the Canadian border. Nothing like Nevada or California casinos.

The amount of smoke in contained fishbowl of casino rooms overwhelming. Even for moderate smoker I would avoid this entire property! Poor ventilation and litter. Non smokers should not venture into casino, and to bring your children to this hotel borders on child abuse. So smokey.

I don't gamble but you can here if you want. Food is good, a little pricey. It overlooks the Kootenai River and has a great view from the dinning area.

Typical smoke-filled Lobby. I think they try to keep the smoke to a minimum but it's still very strong. Restaurant has great food and pleasant, well-dressed waitresses. Some inexpensive updates can make this place even more beautiful. They definitely need to get rid of the dusty, plastic plants in the restaurant.
