We spent one night at this hotel. We had a trackview room, so we were able to watch harness races from our room. However, we were not able to place bets from the room. Also, we had no way of knowing when the next race was going to begin, or what horses were racing. I suppose we could have purchased a program, but we didnt.
Anyway, check-in was very quick and easy, and the staff was very pleasant. The rooms were quite large, very clean, well-maintained and modestly furnished...nothing elaborate. The bathroom was also very large. Our room was also quiet. We heard no noises through the walls or from the track outside. (They also have NASCAR races here, and I suspect we would have heard them through the picture window.) I didnt see HBO listed in the TV directory. The beds were comfortable, and checkout was easy. I have no complaints about the room. (This is a rarity for me.) I didnt look for a pool, but I suspect there was one somewhere. The heating and air conditioning system was very quiet and easy to control. In most motels/hotels, I have to shut it off because Im a light sleeper.
There is a huge casino adjacent to the hotel. They have most table games and hundreds of slot machines. The casino appeared to be smoke-free (a great advantage over casinos in cruise ships.)
Perhaps the only complaint was a charge for a resort fee (7 or 8 dollars). Im not sure what that was supposed to include. Perhaps it was for the in-room safe, which I didnt use. There was also a refrigerator, coffee pot, and coffee available to me. There was adequate parking just outside the building, although the parking lot was full on one occasion. They also offered valet parking, but I chose to self-park.
