“Not for non-smokers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

My husband and I stayed for a business conference and are not gamblers. We asked for and were given what was supposed to be a non-smoking room. The room reaked of smoke so bad that we were unable to sleep for the smell. When arriving home, our overnight bag and clothes smelled of smoke. The mini fridge did not work, the shower was lukewarm and in room internet service will set you back another $10.99 per day/per computer. If by some unfortunate chance the business conference is held in the same location next year, we will find a Sheritan and drive to the meeting. The smell was horrible.

If you are a non smoker stay away from this place. The hotel and Casino reek of smoke, never been in a place as bad as this. Seems like they have no ventilation . On to top of that they charge 10.95 per night per device for wifi. We could not get a data connection on our smart phones. They claim they do not block the signal, but soon as we got out of the hotel we got a connection. They refunded our money , but we would never go back. FYI been in Jersey casinos when they had smoking and in was never as bad as this place.

We have stayed at this property twice in 30 days and found it to be really clean with large tv and small fridge. The beds were of good quality but towels were of very poor quality and (RUFF) The air flow from the furnace was really weak as noted by other guests on this site.The hotel was quiet considering it was attached to a casino and staff was very nice. Food choices were limited with long lines and a little pricey for the type of property.bring your own soda and snacks. We had chicken from Paula Deans carryout and it was very good.

The rooms here are pretty nice and are worth the price, especially when the price is low from one of their special deals or a Total Rewards comp. The beds and furniture are comfortable, the amenities are nice, the TVs are big and flat, the bathrooms are roomy and well lit - all the stuff that makes a hotel room nice. We're just glad that they got rid of the "you bump it, you buy it" mini-bars in the rooms.

The indoor pool area is nice too, even if it is a little bit of a hassle to get to and may require multiple elevator rides. The pool itself is seldom busy and, while not huge, offers enough room to swim and play and have a good time. There is plenty of seating around the pool to sit and chat. The hot tub is nice too but the occasional "mystery foam" that develops while it's running can be a bit off putting.

Plenty of dining opportunities too, including Pearl, Jack Binion's and the Paula Deen Buffet right downstairs as well as an ice cream shop and small cafes.

Obviously, there is also a casino boat at the other end of the corridor.

Room Tip: I don't know if all the rooms face that way, but our rooms have always faced toward the walking...

We stayed on Friday night, 12/28/2012.

I was a little concerned about checking in on a Friday
evening, but the VALET was quick and easy, and
CHECK-IN was also fast and easy.

The room was larger than normal with a nice flat
screen TV.

So I can easily highly recommend these
accomodations.

It was probably a little pricier than other hotels in
the area, but I'm sure I could have gotten a lower
rate if I was not staying during a peak weekend
time.

Yes, it is a long walk to the casino, as a previous
review pointed out. But they have moving sidewalks
AND a golf cart that takes elderly folks back and
forth. And all of that is in a nice enclosed hallway,
like an airport terminal. This is really a NON-Issue.

I will say that the buffet was very busy all night
long with longer lines than I was willing to wait
in. So we had a perfectly nice meal in the cafe
in the hotel lobby. And I'm sure the little
cafe was a lot less expensive than the buffet
anyway.

Gambling:

Some of the VP games have better
paybacks than many of the Strip properties
in Las Vegas. So that seems more than fair
if you know what you are doing. I find SLOTS
pretty boring, so can't comment much on
them.

We had a nice room equiped with a coffee maker but nothing to go with it. The room appeared to be clean and the room was very comfortable. We ordered room service for breakfast and when we moved the seats for breakfast we found some disgusting items housekeeping failed to take care of. We won't go back.
