I stayed here for four nights on business. I was extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel and my room. The carpets, linens, walls, shower curtain, etc. were pristine. I noticed that other reviewers had commented on the smell of cigarette smoke in the hotel, but I could not smell anything until I entered the casino.
All of the meals served by the conference services were excellent; some of the best quality conference food I've ever had. I also ate once at the buffet, and once from the a la carte menu, and I thought the quality was quite good for the price.
I thought that the gym was very clean, modern and well equipped with cardio machines and free weights. The pool was on the smaller side, but also clean and big enough to do some laps if you're alone.
Probably one of the best perks is the free shuttle service that runs every half hour to West Edmonton Mall. This hotel is really in the middle of nowhere, so if you are here for several days, and not a gambler, you will be looking to get out... and the mall is really the only major attraction nearby. Parking is also free which is nice, as is wi-fi in the lobby. In-room wi-fi is around $15/day I believe, which I found a bit unreasonable. I did appreciate that they had a computer and printer in the lobby so that you can check-in and print your boarding pass before heading to the airport.
Overall, good hotel, good service, good food... but pretty isolated.
