Hotel was our stop late at night. Wanted to get around Chicago to avoid traffic. Hotel was adequate with decent pillows and sheets. Older in nature, Rate it 2.5 stars. Just stayed to sleep. People were nice. Went to casino and it was very friendly! Casino is unique whereas it was on two boats. Nothing fancy but won some money.

The staff doesn't seem to know how to greet guests, a robot would do as good a job, or probably better. Above all the room on the 3rd floor was very noisy ALL NIGHT. Probably too close to the casino or sound-proofing is too poor. Not an option if you want a good sleep! And Wifi is unusable

First time coming into town and wanted a solid 1-2. Two tables on a monday. Solid game even past 5am. Would come back again next time through town. Other places in area make sure you call ahead cause they don't all have cash games.

Room is clean and neat. Bed is super comfortable. Front desk staff is very friendly as well as other staff. Lobby is modern and welcoming. A great place to wait for the casino shuttle. Hotel shuttle to casino nearby is very quick and runs very regular. It was our second visit and we weren't disappointed.

This hotel is by far not what I would have chosen for myself, but it was clean, no sign of bed bugs, and they gave very good customer service. I was not happy that I could not get a late check on a Saturday. The hotel parking lot was half empty and they were rushing me out. I see no... More

Had fun visiting. Close to Chicago but far enough to have a great night sleep. Casino has 24 hours shuttle service to the hotel. Felt safe. Room was clean and met our needs. Free Internet. Continental breakfast with waffle was for additional $7.00 per person but it was worth every penny of it.

Hotel is very quiet and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Will come back and stay here again. The casino is the same as most let you win some and takes it back. I was on the side where I could look room window and look at the lake. Beautiful.

The location of this casino is Problematic for people that are not from Gary. Beware leaving at night...beware the parking garage. The smoke in this small cramped casino is overwhelming. They use large amounts or orange scented air freshened to deaden the smoke, instead they create a thick cloud of pollutant. This boat seems to mostly cater to the locals.... More
