The rooms are large and very comfortable...the bed was wonderful. Plenty of light in the bathroom and there is both a minibar and in room coffee. It's reasonably quiet in spite of there being a new hotel built on the grounds adding about 200 rooms and 20,000 square feet of casino space.

Run a maze to find entry to parking then walk a maze to find casino. Currently having major construction. Smoky, poorly ventilated unattractive casino. Minimal poker and Keno machines. My machine stopped responding after one play....20 minutes to find anyone to restart the machine.....second person beat on it to get it going.

Wanted to check out this casino and visit Solvang. Was having such a fun time we didn't even make it to Solvang. Plenty of slot machines to choose from and a pleasant staff. Will definitely go back to this casino. Construction of a new hotel didn't interfere with our experience.

Been coming here since I was 18 years old and it has gone downhill! It use to be fun back in the day but has become a cesspool of dirty people and smoke so thick you can barely see your way through the casino. They have tried to make a lot of changes over the years but it hasn't worked.... More

Gambling spot near other sights and restaurants. Food is decent. Slots are fun. Good for special something or just for a quick visit. Staff is friendly and caring. Meal options. Come back here. I recommend.

This was our first time here. Wasn't too impressed. Casino was on the smaller scale. Didn't find the large chair machines w/ the speakers built in to the headrest. No Wheel of Fortune that we could tell. And it was "dry" no bar nor poker machine bar. I couldn't even buy a beer at the little cafe for sandwiches and... More
