I won a Thanksgiving weekend get away at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. I received a 2 night stay & a gift card. Their PR person (Dave) made my reservations & made sure everything was there at my check in. They also gave me a digital camera to take pictures of my stay. The valet parking was great. We got to go to the vip check in. Our bags were already in our room by the time we got upstairs. The room was very nice. The view was amazing. The room was a nice size & very clean. The beds were supposed to be a queen, but seemed a little smaller-they were very comfortable nonetheless. Bathroom had a shower with bathtub. toilet had a sliding door in the bathroom for privacy (it had a phone in there too.) There was free wi-fi in the rooms so i was able to check messages. There is a table/desk in the room which was nice for reading the morning paper that was provided.
All of the staff were very friendly & helpful. The only person I was a little disappointed in was the PR person, Michelle. She was supposed to meet me upon arrival & was not there. I had tried calling her cell & office numbers & had left messages. She never returned any of my calls. I was taken care of by other staff, but the courtesy of a return call would have been nice.
The buffet was great. The whole retstaurant was clean & sometimes that's hard to do with a buffet. lol They had plenty of choices even for the folks with special diet needs.
We got one of the players club cards & received $25 on the card as it was diva Friday. the casino has a nice warm, cozy, woodsie, log cabin kind of feel to it. I didn't see any garbage anywhere the whole time. There were plenty of shops to choose from & places to eat. There was a whole play land for kids. There was a lot of art throughout the casino. There is a pool/gym & also a spa. We attended two shows in the Wolf Den while we were there-no entrance fee. I have to say it was one of the nicest casinos I have seen. Overall it was a really nice weekend getaway. I would certainly return.
