Stayed at Seneca Allegany for one night Thursday May 24th, 2007. The hotel itself is really new and the rooms were great. Nice tile in the entry-way and the bathroom had a nice, big glass shower and a seperate water closet for the toilet.
The beds were fantastic and everything was still in brand new shape. Towels and wash cloths were better quality than some of the ones we have at home. That was a nice change from the normal paper-thin ones you normally get a standard hotel. Room did have a working mini-fridge that was nice. Flat screen TV and nice dark entertainment center.
We ate twice at the deli-type restaurant on the second floor and the food was good at a little above-average prices. We had appetizers once and sandwiches the second time. The steakhouse was not open when we were there. I heard great things about the buffet, but we did not try it. We had some beers and watched an NBA game at the bar upstairs due to the VP bar downstairs being full. There were only a few other people that stopped by there for a quick drink but it was a nice bar.
The casino was pretty nice. It's better than some other indian casinos I've been to since it had a nice ceiling inside so it didn't feel so warehoure-like. There are only about 40 table games and they are pretty much in two big pits right beside one another. Had two craps table open and one was $5 and one was $10. Only one Caribbean Stud table, 2 3-card poker tables, 2 roulette tables and 1 4-card poker table. A lot of blackjack with a few dead tables waiting for players at all times.
The slots seems to be set tighter than anywhere I've ever been. There was one machine going crazy the whole time that I remember and I think it was for a $1,000 payout on a quarter machine. Besides that, pretty quiet.
The VP at the bar was okay in its payouts. We probably lost about $100 total there playing Deuces Wild for about 2-3 hours. This was the only place you could get top-shelf liquor and anything other than draft beer comped. On the floor the only thing they serve "complimentary" is Bud Light and Coors Light draft in little 8 or 10 oz cups, and well drinks. It felt so nice having a few Stoli's and Sky's comped since that's what we are used to having out in Vegas.
Played a little $1-$2 NL Holdem in the poker room. There were only three tables going mid-afternooon on Thursday, a 2-4 limit game, the 1-2 NL I was in and a 2-5 NL game. All three tables were full. A decent amount of pre-flop raises by my table, with 5 or 6 of the guys being locals and knowing each other pretty well. The game was $100 max buy-in, and a few of the locals were pretty loose and would go all-in with middle pair and then just pull another $100 out trying to get lucky. I got chased down in a big pot by a younger kid to my right that flopped bottom pair and I went all in with top pair. He had good pot odds and called me and tripped-up on the turn. Overall the play wasn't great and you could probably make some good cash here if the local fish don't catch their card, but the players were pretty friendly and I think you could have fun for a few hours playing here while making a few bucks.
Overall, it was a nice night away for me and the wife since we have twin 6-month old boys at home and the new well-appointed rooms were a great bonus. We paid the rack rate which was a little high but we were only there one night so it was well worth it. You also get a USA Today in the morning to read which was nice.
