We recently stayed at this hotel for one night. The rooms were clean and modern. We had a non-smoking room and the room did not smell like smoke being that the hotel is located within a casino. Our stay was quite and comfortable. The bed was a bit firm, but the pillows were very nice. The room had a better... More

What a su6per nice Casino right on I-40. Swing in...walk through the front doors..enjoy the wonderful decor that takes you back to the 60's. Play some blackjack or crank the slots...either way , you'll be treated like a VIP.The employe2es are friendly and the atmosphere is fun. There is a showroom that features celebrity impersonators and a Johnny Rockets. If... More

The hotel has been recently renovated, at least the rooms we stayed in this past trip. They were nicely done and the mattresses were very comfortable. It also looked "cleaner" than it has in the past - I am not sure if this is because of the general feeling you get because everything is new or if it they've worked... More

Enjoyed staying here. I believe we have stayed about 3 times and enjoyed all 3. Nice rooms. The room was good size. and my husband liked the fact he could stay in the room and not worry about me down stairs gambling. He's not much of one. We didn't stay last year but plan on it in a few weeks.

A nice stay and when you are coming from the west a good place to stay before you get to Albuquerque. Dining is limited but the room was nice except for the motion sensitive thermostat. A poor ideA designed to save money but not for comfort. When you are in the room the ax stays on. Leave and it turns... More

We were just driving though without any need for a luke warm buffet or casino...we just needed a room for the night. Next time we'll go closer to Albuquerque for a better value. Staff was polite, room was acceptable - nothing wrong, nothing special. Adjacent to a truck stop so it gets some action from there.

Easy check in and out of the hotel for a quick getaway. Non smoking room was nice and very comfortable but still allowed smoking on the floor and everywhere in the casino (except for an area of about 12 machines which are not separate from the smoking areas). Very disappointed that there's no entertainment during the week and the buffet... More

We were on a long trip across the country when we stopped here for our last night before getting home. Our kids had so much fun in the arcade, the rooms were EXTRA clean and nice, AND to top it off there was a movie being filmed there the night we stayed!! It was so exciting to see the actors...

We called for last minute reservations one night/was accomodated and then asked the next morning if we could stay another night/was accomodated. We had stayed there last year also. Won 2 jackpots this time so it made our vacation tons of fun! There were quite a few kids but there was a pool for them.

I've stayed here many times over the years. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I only have 2 small complaints. First, the walls are pretty thin, so you can sometimes hear your neighbors. Second, the lighting in the room, especially by the beds, is very dim and makes reading difficult. I know they are...
