It was a nice getaway for me and the wife we both like to go our separate ways and Gamble. There is a large variety of machines. The food is excellent! And it makes it nice and very convenient having the motel connected to the gambling area.

I've never been before so I had some questions. All the staff were very helpful and nice. I'd read that it was smoky but it didn't bother me at all. I'm a non smoker but I didn't feel like it was overwhelming or too much. The place is so big and airy. For a Saturday night I thought it would... More

Spent a few hours betting in the greyhounds. Track was clean and the people were helpful and friendly. Didn't win a single race but had a million dollars worth of fun!!

This was a surprise birthday trip from my other half. First time experiencing the dog races and it was wonderful! Service and food was excellent. We stayed nearby at the McClure hotel across the river bc of hotel in casino being booked.

the casino is beautiful. The fountains, the decorating, the lights. It is very posh. It looks like a casino in Las Vegas. The casino is generous with the free play and the slots pay out. There is a really nice buffet too.

This place is loud and smoky. The machines are too loud. Pod used to be good. Buffet not up to par and the pointe is overpriced.
