This hotel is mediocre at best. For the price, it's not worth it. We stayed in a standard room and it was just old and "lived in". We saw one of the fantasy suites when the door was open and it really didn't look much better. Not one member of the staff was pleasant. They acted like our being there... More

Stayed Thursday night in the Cave. Awesome place. Had a great time. Staff very friendly, check in and check out were a whiz. Only problem was little hot water for the hot tub in the AM, but the clerk took care of that right away. We have stayed 3 times here and never disappointed.

My husband and I stayed in the Roman Themed room over Valentines weekend for our 25th anniversary. It was a great experience! Check in was a breeze and the front desk staff very friendly. The hotel overall seems a little dated and old but it was clean. Our room was on the second floor and there's no elevator so be... More

I was hesitant about staying in one of the "fantasy" suites, but I sure am glad that I did! It was fabulous! I'd give 5 stars, but there were a couple of little things that could've used improving. First of all, know that there are a lot of mirrors in these rooms. This will make the pics of the rooms... More

We chose this hotel when we decided to go to the casino for New Years and couldn't get a room at the casino. There is a shuttle from the casino that you can call and get a ride. We just got a basic room not the theme rooms. It met our needs with a clean bed and had a mini... More

Average and overpriced for where it is. There isn't a whole lot in town, super 8 next door, from the reviews I decided to select this one. Next time I will pass and plan better to get to the next town.

This is a local hotel that has nice big rooms and a good hot breakfast a good deal for the price. There is also a good Mexican restaurant next door and a good cafe downtown. Hotel could use a little freshening up but still looks nice. Bed was good.

Not too many places to choose from in the area. Wanted to go to the casino and their hotel didn't take pets so we ended up here. Was clean. Somewhat worn. Would stay again. For a motel breakfast the food was great! Very nice older lady taking care of the breakfast. Sorry I didn't get her name so I could... More

My husband and I frequent this hotel for couple getaways. The hotel is quiet, the suites are so much fun. This is one way to pamper ourselves. We have never stayed in a regular room or using the breakfast service but LOVE the suites. They have specials so make sure to check their web site for a GREAT deal.
