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...

First of all, we have never done well in this casino. They do not pay at all!!! The room is fine, just a normal room. The bed was comfy, we slept well. The BEST thing was the coffee pot. It makes 4 full cups of coffee. Awesome! The shower heads are a little small but the pressure was fine.

Very easy to find, just off the I40 before you get into Albuquerque if your heading east. Clean and tidy room, well equipped and spacious. There is a large Casino on the ground floor, with several places to eat and drink, including a Jonny rockets. Nice place to stay, although my visit was for only one night.

This was the first time staying in the hotel. Rv'd in the parking before and enjoyed the casino and restaurants. This is my brothers favorite and I see why. Great room as well! The reduced prices in the restaurants really make it affordable. 😋

The room was very nice. Giant flat screen TV, comfortable bed. Several eating places ring the casino. Food was mediocre at Thunder Road Steakhouse, but had a great breakfast at the Main Street restaurant. Large casino with games and slots for everyone.

We stopped here because they offer free overnight RV parking and it was great. A large parking lot that accommodated the RV and trailered car. We had dinner at the buffet and it was surprisingly really good...lots of fresh, tasty food. We would highly recommend this spot, RV or not. Plus we won a few bucks!

We were buying a car in NM & stayed there. Rooms were clean, up-to-date. Beautiful place, breakfast was a la carte. They do not serve drinks in the gambling areas so no reason to gamble. Cheap stay. Subsidized, I presume, by the locals as most vacationers like to have a drink while they gamble.
