They don't pick up their phone, you have to go down, and then most of them are talking to one another, rather than helping customers. 2. Extremely rude... More

We stayed here on Dec 1, 2011 for one night. I had booked the two rooms through Expedia. The clerk at the desk was rude, and unfriendly. The check in took 45 minutes with no one in front of me, she only spoke to me to demand my Passport and my Credit Card. When we got to our assigned rooms... More

The casino is comfortable and a nice experience. The downside was customer service. Luckily, I... More
