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

The weather was bad and warnings to stay off the roads. They made us welcome with last minute room reservations. The room was small but they made it happen. Thank You so much for your assistance and making everything work.

We have been to this casino a few times and each time we say we are not going back. The casino is always very busy. People just sitting at machines, not playing and not willing to move so you can play. There are not enough machines to play, at least 20 of them were down in one area alone. Dark... More

This has to be one of the nastiest hotels around!!! I had a free room from points, it's not worth going even for free!! Couldn't even get comfortable, the rooms just feel gross!! Now I see why I get some many free rooms from them. Nobody wants to step foot in those rooms. Demolish and rebuild!!

First, the room was dirty with the wallpaper falling off the wall in the bathroom. The mirror was still dirty from the last guest. The room has not been updated since it was built and still has the old school huge TV "no flat screen" this place was a dump and not worth the money!!!!
