It was over $15 a person to eat here, so we figured the options would be great, but what they did have wasn't very good. The options they had were just typical things you could get at any buffet for half the price. The only thing we enjoyed about the buffet was the dessert, otherwise paying $15 to eat a... More

Last year I went 3 to 4 times a month. Every month I would get coupons and perks sent in the mail. This year I have went 3 times on my own dollar, gambling, dining, and getting a room...only to be told they discontinued birthday room rates and there's no explanation as to why I'm not getting any mailing discounts...

I've been here before and loved it. However.... Firstly they charged $250.00 for a room that's normally around $80. Then they mixed up and gave us a plain handicapped room instead of the room with a jacuzzi. The shower was a non floored wet room style with just a drain in the floor. The shower head was stuck at an... More

I rented a smoking room because the hotel was close to sold out. They said they would put an air purifier in our room prior to our arrival. We asked at check in and the gal just blew us off. The room smelled like a smokers lounge. Maybe they could have fabreezed it? The room was one of the most... More

On July 19, 2016 I stayed at the hotel and found myself on the 5th floor. I was having a great... More

While the room was clean and things were in good repair, the bed was awful and unless you wanted burgers, nachos or pizza the room service was non-existent. The bed was awful. On the plus side it was quiet and a non smoking room...so no smell.

Room was very clean, and we were allowed early check-in upon our arrival. New slots paid off well; Noticed fewer machines in the non-smoking section. Hope that reverts back to normal when construction ends. Northern Grill had great food for both dinner & breakfast, especially the cinnamon french toast!

I like going here because they have fun stuff to do for all ages! The Kids Cove could use some help, they hours the website advertised and the place itself advertised were different. But my kids love going there! The pool area is nice, and the restaurants are all good! The rooms are nice, and I like that they almost... More
