We received a comp room from Harrah's in August. We checked in to the room and encountered several things wrong. Some were miinor things others were not. The lamp switch was broken and laying in the floor. I pulled back the bed sheets and found hair in the bed and the sheets were so knotted up and rough. I called... More

This is a very nice property, our room was comped from the casino. I will have to say the property is a little hard to find, but we should've called to verify our directions. The room was large, the bedding was nice, and it had a nice flat-screen television. Didn't try the pool area, so can't comment there. The staff... More

This was a comp room from Harrahs and read the earlier reviews and was a little concerned. The motel is obviously an old Holiday Inn. Our room was clean and comfortable.. The space and furnishings were good. TV flatscreen, but cable was not HD. I have been so many places that this is true. We stayed two nights and used... More

My husband booked this hotel. I was a little concerned after reading the reviews. I was quite surprised. Our room had been refurbished except for the air conditioning. The room air was stale probably from being shut up for a while but after we turned on the AC the staleness disappeared. The king bed slept really good and the two... More

We received a comp room from Harrah's Casino. It is old & outdated. This is the old Holiday Inn.The rooms are small, the bathroom is awful. Harrah's can do better than this. You can hear guests in the other rooms talking. I would not stay here again. Even if it was free, it was not worth it. The hotel needs... More

I, like most of the reviewers, received a comped room here. I decided to go to Harrahs on a whim and their hotel was sold out. I received a room here for no charge just like the other reviewers. This is an older motel. It is not the same quality as Harrah's and apparently wasn't the same quality as most... More

D not let Harrahs comp your room here. Place is dusty and smells of smoke. Breakfast is very minimal, $7.95 charge for each person over the two per room. Basic eggs, biscuit,(no toast available), grits, oatmeal, sausage, French toast and coffee or tea, nothing more. Bitten by something while there developed red whelks on my back.

Like many, this was a "comp" room by the Casino. Wouldn't have been my first choice but I found the hotel to be adequate. The room had been updated and was comfortable. The only annoying thing were some louder guests (not the hotel's fault.) I was put in a ground floor room by the stairway and could hear other guests... More
