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.

There is a good selection of new slots but the casino paid out better a few years ago before they got the new machines. With all the money they rake in from gamblers, you would think they could still afford to provide free wifi!
