I used to really like this casino. Used to be able to stay and play a while. Red screens are rare and if you get one it is usually the single bar. Seems like business has really dropped off from before. If you go just hang on to your wallet because the machines are hungry

This area does not offer much in the way of upscale but if your travels find you near this Casino Hotel then it in my opinion is a great place to stay.

First Council Hotel Casino is a great place to stay and play if you are in the mood for a little gambling. The casino is smallish but has a wide variety of games. The hotel is attached to the casino so you never have to go outside to go to your room and the rooms are very nice when you... More

The rooms are nice and staff was courteous but valet parking as advertised did not exist. There is no pool or hot tub and no exercise room. If you don't want to gamble or watch TV, you'd better bring a book.

Wife and I try to make it to this hotel whenever possible. The facilities are always clean and quiet. The staff is always polite and professional (and they always seem to have cookies, coffee, tea, and sometimes lemonade at the desk). The price is very reasonable and they provide breakfast in the hotel Steve Hutchinson, KS

Good place to stay. Great breakfast. Great service. All non smoking rooms. We do a lot better gambling here than the kansas star. Cheaper drinks than the Kansas star. It is worth the forty five minute drive from Wichita.

The desk clerk upon check in was very cold and not friendly nor welcoming at all. He acted as if we were intruding or something and gave us no infornation about the hotel or ammenities or... More

We enjoyed the fresh lemonade and cookies upon arrival. The room was scrupulously clean, the bedding first rate (lots of fluffy pillows and a comfy mattress) and the decor warm and inviting. The vanity in the bathroom has plenty of room for cosmetics and stuff. Great shower! The breakfast was OK, with lots of variety. We will stay again!
