We went to this casino twice since we were staying on property, and found it to be the most un-friendly casino we've ever visited. We thought it was a bad first night but on the second night, we even had to ask for beverage service and none was ever offered. Unhappy, unfriendly employees. Boring atmosphere. Never again.

Since we were staying at this Holiday Inn this was the closest and first place that I went to to play blackjack. I discovered that bingo rules this place from 4 to 6pm every day. The dealers don't show up until 6pm so we hung around until I could play. I played for a couple of hours, won a little... More

I went a few times and watched. It does have apoker room so if that is your thing it is good. I did not want to mess up the game and did not feel lucky for other games. It did not get to crowded.

Casino dull not very many newer slot machines. We must have arrived during a Bingo game, many people mulling around in chairs. Nothing interested me.

Cramped, dingy, and depressing this is just not an exciting and fun place to be in. The staff looks bored and so will you be ,

Small, cozy and friendly Casino. From the Dealers to the Pit Bosses they make you feel welcome. Locals as well as Tourist are welcome. Over the years I have come to know most of the dealers and pit bosses and they treat you well and make you feel welcome.

We came here but found that this is a pretty small, old casino, in need of updating. Not our favorite but just ok.

This casino reminded me of the El Cortez casino in Las Vegas. If that's your taste you'll probably love the Excelsior casino in Aruba.
