Hotel carpet was rippling in the room & hallways. Room was clean but could use a little updating. Didn't eat at the restaurant but did try our luck in the casino. Staff was very friendly at the players club card registration area. We will visit again.

Working in the area, stayed four nights here. Great place, nice rooms, quiet, and the most TV channels I have ever seen. Good food in the restaurant and right down the street too. The casino is also very nice and the customer service was great, all the way through.

Stayed at the RV park which provides only electric but the price id right. The casino and hotel are showing signs of old age and in need of some work. A good coat of paint and maybe a few upgrades. The casino is laid out nicely but a manly perfume about it which I'm sure is to mask the nicotine... More

5 months before our stay we made reservations for an important event.one of the members of our party called to cancel only one room in our reservation and made it very clear that it was only to be one room. Someone at the front desk staff cancelled our entire reservation and we were told all that was left was a... More

Spent one night at the Royal River casino and hotel. When I called to make our reservation I talked to Troy. He was so helpful and when we arrived at the hotel he had made all the arrangements which turned out to be an excellent room for us. Room was large, big screen TV. Room was very clean and smelled...

After how much money you spend here you would think the beds would be comfortable. My husband and I woke up so sore and could barely move and we are only 30! Flat pillows and a hard bed. Love how you read the website and it says the rooms are so relaxing and with their comfortable beds! Ha! Never enough... More

My wife and I and a couple friends stayed at the hotel, expecting a nice weekend. Wrong. The wife took her shower the next morning only to find a used bar of soap with hair on it. The hotel smells of cigarette smoke. The food in the restraunt was adequate. Nothing spectacular. Will never go back again. Mike Snedeker
