Great dance band! Cigarette/cigar smoke really bad!

We spent most of the evening in the Exis lounge enjoying the dance band. We loved the band but I have to say we were surprised by the amount of smoke. There were a lot of people... read more

The casino was ok, machines tight and a lot of the outdated. As a former smoker and After reading a lot of complaints about the smoke, my wife and I honestly did not have a problem with it. Parking was good and so was the food we ate at the casino.

The casino is nice looking inside, but the floor is small with a lot of outdated slot machines. It was hard to find the refreshment stations (there's only 2) and hard to find a drink runner. Not a bad place, but nothing spectacular.

In some ways a major Casino is just a major Casino. All of them are to some extent very similar. I attended a baseball game and then visited the MGM Grand after the game just to check-it-out. I found it to be very hospitable to guests with the staff very pleasant. There was much to see and many opportunities to... More

I enjoy going here ; there are lots of machines to try out! Only wish I could win! It has a non smoking room for those who are smoke sensitive although I didn't think the rest of the casino was smokey

I primarily like to play poker, thus my focus is the poker room. To start, the casino is well located near the highway and has plenty of free on-site parking. Always felt safe coming to the casino. The casino is large and modern, and well maintained. The poker room is nice and large and in its own area of the... More

Very nice casino. Plenty of slots, excellent floor service and plenty of good dining on site. 2 smoke free areas but overall air quality was not bad at all even when very busy.
