They are very attentive and not overly crowded. It still smells of smoke but they no longer allow smoking inside, which is awesome. The buffet is very filling and affordable. Do not think of this as Vegas, it is a small historic town and it costs a lot to continue the upkeep on the old buildings

Bad food, bad setting, incredibly overpriced for the quality. I would liken it to the chow line somewhere upstate where you're doing 10-15. Find a McDonalds if you're hungry.

Enjoyed our time here. Place was clean and everyone was friendly but we only spent a few hours in this spot. The 76ers museum was interesting and the outdoor area was a nice place to stretch ur legs.

Nice and clean. No one attended lobby desks. Called and got immediate service for extra pillows though. Shuttle down to casino and buffet or could walk. Quiet end of town. Would stay again.

My wife and I spent about 12 hours on the road and held off eating dinner - anticipating some of the advertised Prime Rib Buffet.

First Gold has a relaxed atmosphere, casual decor, and down-home food on the buffet. The gaming is similar to all casinos, and the motel has small rustic rooms with a western motif. We have stayed here several times, and have always found it to be clean and comfortable. The staff members are truly outstanding. They call many folks by name,... More
