I had visited this casino several years ago and was not all that impressed. Then I heard they had built a hotel and read some positive reviews on TripAdvisor so I decided to give it a try. I booked a King Bay View Room for a reasonable price with my AAA discount. I was very impressed when I walked in the lobby. The staff was very friendly and the lobby very nice with a great view of the bay. This is a new hotel so the all the common areas looked clean and modern.
I had a room on the third floor and it was very large and spacious. I loved that the it had floor to ceiling windows the full width of the room. It made for a very nice view (if you could look past the RV camping between the hotel and the water). The room was also very clean and new looking. It had a nice decor and the furniture was very comfortable. It had a large LCD TV with the largest selection of channels I have seen at a hotel. The bathroom was also very nice, with a large walk in shower. I have read some reviews complaining there is no tub. I actually prefer a room without a tub. I wouldn't want to take a bath in a hotel room anyway. I also really appreciated the in room safe. The wireless Internet was very string and robust. I streamed a movie on my IPad and the wireless handled it perfectly.
The casino was also better than I remembered. It was a short walk from the main hotel area and not overly smokey. There were three bars in the casino, one of them a large sports bar with many big screens. The food was decent and the atmosphere good. There was also a couple other restaurants and a deli in the bingo area that I did not try. The employees in the casino were also very friendly and if I had been winning it would have been a perfect stay. I will definitely stay here a again in the future.
