It is hard to bad mouth the local hotels, but I will anyhow. The empress casino has had a fire and it is still being repaired. The companyg and is doing a good thing at the casino.

Shuttle drivers expect a tip, crappy deli for food after 11 pm weekdays, no local deliveries available, 2 miles from town watch what you drink before venturing for food after being on the road all day.... Overpriced weekdays one hundred dollars and change... Pass it by and look for something better is my recommendation..

We stay at these hotel/casino combinations on purpose for the ease of traveling back and forth from the room to the casino. This was a big dissapointment. The hotel does offer a shuttle, thats true, but... More

From the minute I walked into this establishment, I could smell the lingering odor of cigarette smoke. The beauty of the hotel itself was masked in a cloud of ignorant desk workers and a blatant disrespect of the no smoking law. The room was average; although the carpeting held terrible stains as well as cigarette burn holes. A block of... More

The hotel is very close to the casino and offers shuttle service to and from the hotel to the casino. The hotel employees are very nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I plan to stay there again and I only live a half an hour away. That's how much I loved the place.
