My wife and I decided to try this place out after all the good stuff we heard. Mainly for the spa and food. First off the room was gorgeous. Las Vegas quality. We have stayed in a lot of places and this room was in the top 10 easily. Large room, even larger bathroom. We posted pics, so I am... More

Getting the room at the reception desk was very fast and pleasant. Elevators are all working and fast. Hallways are very nice. The room was a nice surprise due to the big picture windows and view. The room is very modern and clean. I think the TVC rooms are nicer than most rooms in Reno or Las Vegas. Bathroom is... More

The hotel is pretty nice; rooms are spacious, very nicely appointed, bathrooms are huge! Signs everywhere saying it is a nonsmoking hotel, but if you forgot your cigarettes, just take a deep breath and you won't miss them. Can't get to the hotel from the parking garage without going through the casino; that is, if you want to use the... More

The Hotel and Casino were stunning. We arrived late on a Wednesday for a quick stay. Check in was quick and easy, everyone was very friendly. The access the elevators you do need an active room key (Which is a nice touch) keeps out unwanted traffic. The room was well appointed and the beds were extremely comfortable. The casino floor...

Parking was free to this attraction and inside provided the usual array of casino games. Gone are the days of free drinks at casinos, but smoking is alive and gasping at this establishment. I am not sure how the stakes compare, but we walked away without winning back the $20 we agreed to spend. It was fun in a way,... More

The pool, the casino, the restaurants, the spa. All great things to do. The pool's DJ is super fun. The spa is tough to get into. Make an appointment upon arrival. The spa products are GREAT! The rooms are very accommodating and quiet. You will not be disappointed with your room. And if you are lucky, your slots will pay... More

The rooms are very clean and up scale . The bathrooms are spacious with entra large cotton towels . The resturants serve great meals with reasonable prices. Love the security, the only way to use the elevators is if you have a room key. The selection of slot machines is outstanding. They also have a food court with a Star... More

We enjoyed the lovely pool, cafe, Coconut Bar and fantastic room-service breakfast! Who knew this gem would be located 10 miles from my home? I have traveled all over the world and can honesty say...
