Well, we actually planned a day trip to the four corners, but 18 miles from the monument they had the first sign that stated it closed. Therefore, to avoid a wasted long trip, we decided to stop at the casino. As we approached the front doors, there was a sign that stated "No one under the age of 18 allowed beyond this point unless accompanied by an adult." I planned on gambling, while my wife just held our 8 month old daughter. As soon as we opened the door, the smoke was overwhelming. I went in to find the non-smoking section and after I found the tiny room I went to get the rest of the family. As we started to enter this section a fifteen year old looking rent a cop stated my daughter was not allowed. I then pointed to the sign that was in the middle of the entry way to the smoking section of the casino that stated the above. The rent a cop stated "that means allowed on the property, but not on the gaming floor." I then stated well, beyond that point is the gaming floor and I didn't get a response. So, my wife had to go sit out in the vehicle with our daugther, while I gambled. After, cutting my way through the smoke, I found a game to play. As I played I had several rent a cops walk past me and finally one of them came up and rudely asked to see my ID. After that I left and during my experience, I was never greeted or smiled at. The employees all seemed to have a chip on their shoulder. Oh and the smoke is very strong still in the hotel section of this rat hole. I can onl imagine that the food also tastes like smoke. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
