Friendly & inviting staff, including Valet, Bellman, & Registration. CLEAN! Rooms were spacious & comfortable. Huge flatscreen HD TV. Strong wifi. Large bathroom with very good shower water pressure. Would I stay there again - indeed I would !

The room was very spacious and clean. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that could be better is better isolation of the non-smoking areas of the casino, and perhaps having the entry area designated non-smoking. Had to walk through the smoking areas to get to the non-smoking areas.

We had been to this casino about 10 years ago and it was nice. Our return visit was a big disappointment. The place hadn't been kept up. It was dirty, smokey, in bad repair. No popular slots available. Will not return. I suggest you chose another option.

We were visiting East Chicago for business and this was the only "four star" hotel in the area.
