The Casino is large and has many attractions as well as being smoke free. They have very reasonably priced Buffet options if that's your thing.We played into the night with...

Room was old and outdated, but kept clean. The internet was good, but that's about all there is good to say. Dingy and worn describes it well. There are not many other choices around though. If they would renovate it and brighten the place up, maybe it would earn a 4.

Not Vegas, but I had a good time. It's a great last minute option. The drive is a lot closer than Atlantic city. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. The service on the floor are not that friendly. Look forward to our next visit. See you in a few weeks.

I stayed here for my cousins 30th wedding anniversary. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy, but could use a little more TLC the headboards were very dusty and the telephone was kinda on the gross side. The shower base appeared to be a little dingy. Other than that it was a good stay. The staff is pleasant it's...
