The only flaw was the smoke in casino and in fact the ventilation made it bearable. The food in all of the restaurants was fine and the entertainment was great. The staff are friendly, rooms were very clean and a decent size not that we spent any time in them. The pool area is very nice. I recommend going on... More

My wife and I spent the night last night 9/12/15 and the better part of the day 9/13/15. Our room was comfortable and clean. The little extras provided are great in the room. We enjoyed the deli last night and buffet for brunch today (a good value) for the price. Gaming was fun and adding to that the band playing... More

Came here for a concert. Pretty good concert venue and nice casino. I would have preferred non smoking in the casino, but the air handling system must be pretty good because I didn't notice the smoke much. No free drinks and I didn't win anything, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

The hotel is average. We stayed on the older part of the Casino. The nicer area is the Stardust Wing. The beds are more comfortable and the rooms in general are nicer. The only drawback is the casino is smoking while the hotel is non-smoking.

I booked a two double bed room well in advance of our stay here. When we arrived at 12:30 pm we were told our room was not ready yet and to keep trying back. We tried every 45 mins or so after that and at 4:15 were told our room was finally ready. They gave us a handicapped room with... More

Had received two coupons one for staying one for buffet. Both did not have any expiration date info on them. So when I decided to use the buffet coupon on the night of our second stay I was told it had expired. I showed the person that there is no expiration date on this coupon and in fact it said... More
