Close to I80, easy on/off. Rebecca and Katy at the desk allowed us to check in early. The room was spotless (even the corners), smelled fresh and very quiet. Plenty of parking and the breakfast was adequate. We checked on the RV park pricing but found it much higher than we are accustomed to paying for full hook up or... More

If I could give 3.5 stars, I would. The hotel/room is slightly better than average but not necessarily "very good." All the same, I would stay again due to location and value. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom/sink area is small for two people, but it's functionable. Following the advice of others, I requested a north facing room--the... More

OK for a place to sleep but nothing special. Room looked exactly like their picture on the web site. Bed was OK regarding comfort. Bathroom could be cleaner. No coffee maker in room but offers free coffee and water in lobby at all times. Coffee was pretty good, no complaints. No hair conditioner, only shampoo and body lotion offered. Very... More

The shuttle bus driver was very pleasant and arrived quickly when requested. I booked on hotels.com and had absolutely no issues. I can se us coming here again, with the casino and restaurants just a shuttle... More

We stayed in our motorhome in their campground. Good level paved site. Elect & water, no sewer at site. Eady access dump behind the hotel. Easy access off I-80. Would stay again. Also ate in casino. Soup & half sandwich. Decent. Would have liked to have won in casino.

Not being connected to the casino the hotel was very quiet. Continental breakfast was plenty to keep you going until lunch. We were comped for a meal at the buffet... More

Beds are so soft you can't enjoy a good nights sleep, your partner moves a centimeter and it's as if you're on a water bed and then you're wide awake. There is not a fridge in the room which we were prepared for and brought a cooler to fill w/ice for things we brought to keep cold - no fridge... More
