We stayed here earlier this week for a few days between the poker tournament and the Yes concert. We were comped 2 nights stay after staying last Christmas break. We are not high rollers so we were very happy to receive the offer. We checked in around 2 PM (early) with east view of the pool/golf course and higher floor. All requests were honored even though it was a comp! The room is immaculate, has a Keurig coffee maker, free coffee & tea pods and a small refrigerator. There are also many places to plug in your electronics so was not a hastle with my and my husband's. The bathroom is beautiful and large with separate bathtub and shower. The best place to eat at a really good price is Ocean Trails. We ate most of our meals there again. It is Louisanna style seafood and delicious. The hotel is non-smoking so that is wonderful. They have happy hour from 4-7 pm with reasonably priced drinks. Several bars or they will bring to you while gambling. The cocktail waitresses are friendly and plentiful even playing penny slots. The casino is a little smokey but it all depends on the day or time of year. During the winter/spring/fall they open doors between the hotel and the casino and the smoke goes outside but with that said, it is newer so the ventilation system is pretty darn good. Didn't use the pool but looked inviting. Just too hot for us, 110 degrees outside. They have a spa also but neither of us were interested in that. Both my husband and I received a few hand pays from the slots and came back with more money than expected which makes for a great trip. The poker room is non-smoking also. We prefer this resort to going to Las Vegas anymore. Close (2 hours), friendly, great comps, great rooms, food, etc. Where in Vegas can you get a refrigerator and Keurig coffee for free in a really nice resort? Go during the week and the place isn't horribly busy either. Another plus to not staying on the strip. My husband and I highly recommend this resort/casino. FYI - we don't smoke and still had a blast.
