The hotel is being renovated. The new rooms are very nice. I love the shades on the window because you cannot tell it is daylight out. The staff is always friendly and they are very generous with the late check outs.

No, unfortunately there was not when we were there. The website said there was but hotel said they stopped in April. Not sure why. It's not far to casino so you might check out uber or a taxi.
