We stayed at the lodge in room 2027. It was 2 queen beds, clean, beds were comfortable, air worked great and I dont recall much hallway noise. The casino was fun and dinner at Wellingtons delicious. This is a nice quiet getaway, very low key as it sits on the river and there is nothing else around. They do have... More

Very nice rooms....very nice buffets....and nice location to visit downtown Rising Sun. Was not able to take advantage of any of the pavilion entertainment...which would have been nice on a Thursday night....since our stay was Thur/Friday.

We picked this as a half way stop in our trip down South, price was reasonable and it seemed nice. Staff were nice but the walk from parking to the desk was way too far, needed to be a regular casino patron to park near the hotel entrance. Then another long walk to the elevator and room. The bed was... More

I have to say that for the money this is one of the nicest places that I have stayed at ,its a little out of the way but worth the trip. Its about 30 minutes from the Kentucky Speedway and there was no traffic getting back to the hotel, so if you're a race fan or just looking for a... More

We have always requested a earlier check in due to length of travel and medical issues and usually got it. But not the last time. We got in around 4PM which is what they say .

We stayed at the Lodge which is across from the older hotel and casino. We have stayed here before. Last time I had issues which were all addressed. This time there were no issues. We were here for the Hot Air Balloon Festival which was nice. I like that you can go outside by the pool and watch the river.

Rising Star (Argosy) used to be one of our favorite places to get away. We had noticed a decline in service, cleanliness, professionalism, atmosphere / pretty much every area. This visit was especially disappointing. From the moment we checked in, we were faced with a long line (5:00 pm) and only two people working behind the counter. The lady who... More

The rooms were very nice with couch, easy chair, table, chairs, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, along with the usual t-v, phone, etc. The temperature was easily adjusted and the bathroom had a large walk in shower, hair dryer, and soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. The king size bed was very comfortable.
