My wife and I have gambled at the EC for many years. The casino is old and smokey but very friendly. We never really considered staying there because we thought the rooms would also be very old and smokey. Well we got an offer in the mail for three free night in December and decided to check it out. I assured my wife that if the room was a dump we would leave immediately. We specifically asked for a Tower room and were assured that we would get one (not one of the "old" rooms). When we checked in we were given room 603 in the Tower. We went up to the room a bit apprehensive. We got off on the 6th floor to find new carpeting in the hallway and everything very clean. We opened the door to our room and were shocked. The room was clean as a whistle with new carpeting, drapes and furnishings. It was much nicer than we thought it would be. The bathroom is a bit small but the room was good size. We were very pleased with our room. I cannot attest to the old rooms, but the tower rooms, while not the Bellagio, are better than the rooms at the Plaza, the Vegas Club and the Lady Luck. We would definately stay at the EC again.
The only problem we found with the room is that the hot water is VERY hot. Be careful in turning it on.
