I had never been to the old hotel, but this was my first visit to this hotel. The rooms are very nice only bad thing is the bathtub are very awkward to get into but rooms were roomy and clean and the balcony was an added bonus. The casino is a nice size and have a lot of new and some old machines good variety. The buffet is also very good. The only negatives are the hotel check in is in a awkward spot and its very slow. The pool is gorgeous lots of room to tan and relax outside the pool and in. The bar service was kinda slow the day I went not sure if its always like that. I never did go look at the 2nd pool. Only bad thing about the pool is you have to go out the hotel and in the casino and into the parking garage to get to the pool. Its strange but its definitely worth it can't wait to go back!!
