This restaurant has soon good home cooking and good fried chicken:) With descent prices. The atmosphere is a bit of an older yet well taken care of place within the Chestnut Hotel.

Great hotel for the money. They have the best complimentary breakfast in the whole town. (including the casino which has none!). Their indoor pool is closed but they have a very clean outdoor pool. Rooms always clean and employess always courteous. When I can't stay on casino property I specifically request this hotel.

Free breakfast and the food quality reflects it. Poor selection of breakfast meats. No cooked to order eggs. Pay extra for bacon.

We stayed there last year, liked the room, and loved the full, complimentary sit down breakfast. Would stay there again.

Terrible staff attitude. Rooms old. Breakfast bar looked like a pig sty 30 minutes after it opened. Can hear the people in the room next door. Noise all hours of the night.
