“Sheryl Crow concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Loved the show - Sheryl Crow!
Dinner in Buffet was ok, but would have like to see more vegetables and dishes and healthy choices.
Casino was very smoky! I couldn't last there very long and may have enjoyed playing a few games, but the smoke chased us out!

“Low Quality Indian Casino”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Only table games are blackjack and poker, if you call that a table game. Very smoky. No one ever seems to win. You can throw your money into a slot anywhere, so unless its convenient to stop here or you are coming in for a show, don't bother to make it a destination.

“great food stingey machines”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The hotel rooms are very blah. Do they make them so uninviting you will want to go to the casino? We did not want to pay more to stay in their new addition but they really need to upgrade the origional part. The food at the buffet was fantastic. Very fresh and displayed beautifully. The staff in the buffet are all very nice. They smile and welcomed us. We have played at this casino many times -- but the machines are bad since they built that new hotel tower. We have chosed to by-pass this casino in the future.

“Pace needs some serious help”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The hotel rates are the best around for the tower rooms.. After that it goes down fast. Takes forever to check in, kids running everywhere screamin and theres no security to stop it.

The worst bars. I asked a bar tender if he could change a game on one of the tv's and he told me no way. HE WAS WATCHING THAT GAME.. CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS !

The one bar tender was talking to her friend for 10 minutes why me and another guy stood there waiting.. when she finally came over she acted like she was doing us a favor.

The deli line took forever ,the lady checking people out was so slow and could care less..

I would say stay in the tower for a great rate and nice room but avoid the old part of the hotel..

Go eat & drink somewhere else..

B the way the casino looks like they built a garage and threw some machines in it.

. GOOD LUCK. !!! Your going to need it.
