The room was spacious but rather sterile. The beds were not very comfortable. No fan in the bathroom and the sink drained very slowly, On the good side the casino was nice and the food at the Pub was very good. The complimentary breakfast was adequate.

The hotel is pretty nice and they always have a good rate, when it comes to stuff to do there is nothing they filled the pool in so there is no swimming or hot tub I think if you stay at a casino you have to have something to do besides gamble. The machines are tighter then anywhere I have... More

The casino, coffee shop, staff, & room itself were fine. But unfortunately after staying there a few times, the breakfast buffet was horrible & every time I made a reservation (keeping in mind it was not St. Pat's nor was there an event going on) they tell me they're about all booked. I then get stuck with a smoking and/or... More

We stayed at the hotel for a family wedding and were not overly impressed. Upon entering the hotel/casino, it is very clean and kept up. Check in was a breeze and the staff and rates were great. The rooms were average but they allow smoking in the casino which travels through the ventilation system. Our room smelled so bad of... More

Very clean, affordable,quiet and personable. The room is large and very clean. Has a flat screen and a number of cable channels. The casino is small, but plenty of slots and table games. It is a newer property, and is very well maintained and housekeeping does an awesome job. Has a good restaurant and free breakfast for hotel guests.

Great rates for a very nice room. The staff was very friendly and even recommended the Chinese restaurant in town because the hotel restaurant was closed. The casino didn't smell smokey and only took a little of my money. We would have stayed longer if there was more to do in town but we didn't want to gamble all day... More

We went there for my company Christmas part. The event room upstairs was nice. It is behind Dunigan's. The server's were polite and made sure we were taken care of, and the food there was good. It didn't really pop out as being fantastic, but also I couldn't complain. None of the meat was dry, maybe just a little under... More

We stay here twice a year, usually over holidays. It is a beautiful facility and the rooms are spacious. The staff is always very pleasant and it is a great place to stay. They filled in their indoor pool which is a negative for families. On our last visit over Thanksgiving we were disappointed that the free breakfast buffet (eggs,... More

We stayed at the casino during a Thanksgiving trip to visit family. I have no complaints about the room or the quality of the service we received. Everyone was so nice, even though they were working over the holiday. We got comp coupons for the breakfast buffet, which really wasn't much to write home about, but it was convenient and... More
