A great place with friendly helpful staff. Good food. Lots of slot machines. You don't have to go anywhere else but if you do it is at a great location to other attractions, shopping, and restaurants.

The hotel is very clean & well maintained. In spite of record breaking heat the hotel staff managed ro keep it cool & comfortable inside. The staff very friendly & accommodating.

Used to like this casino, but not as accommodating as they used to be. They seem to be catering to only the high rollers. They are not as good at giving out food comps as they used to be. It would be better if they gave a monthly allowance, based on play, like Harrington does.
