Lakeside Casino is no longer run by the Terrible's corporation, but that does not matter with the experience. The new hotel rooms look and feel much more upscale than one typically expects from a three star hotel/motel. The beds and pillows are SO COMFORTABLE! Definitely one of the best hotel nights ever for quality of sleep. One small drawback is the fact that modern hotel construction lends itself to less than soundproof celings and floors, but it is easily remedied by setting the a/c to fan only and the soft white noise drowns out virtually all other noises. The pool is nice, the weight room has good equipment (and I hope they get more,) and I am very excited to see the grounds when external landscaping is complete. The buffet, though not overly elaborate, has many excellently prepared dishes and will satisfy virtually every appetite. They also have menus available with very tasty home-cooking style meals. A nice feature is the fact that they have an actual breakfast buffet on Sunday mornings, so a person is not stuck paying for a champagne brunch they don't have the appetite for (although it looked like a good deal!) The drinks from the lounges are not ridiculously overpriced, either. The best part of Lakeside was the table gaming. Slots are a bit tight (90% payout) but that is the area, unfortunately. The craps and pai gow had some of the best and nicest dealers I have encountered, Vegas included. The players club staff went above and beyond to help us capitalize on comps. In fact, the service throughtout the complex was excellent from check-in to check-out. The only reasons I did not rate this five stars were the ceilings and I wished there were more things for families to do besides the pool and restaurant. I hope they put in a game room or a miniature golf course, for example. They could also rent paddle boats for mini lake excursions. All in all, this was a wonderful place to stay and I think everybody will enjoy it.
