“Lake view and a just a short walk from the Casino boat”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We received a coupon in the mail from the Casino for a free one night stay (and free buffet). The hotel is a short walk across a street from the Casino. There are free shuttle buses that run every few minutes with cheerful drivers who will take you there if you would rather not walk. The front desk employees greeted us with a smile. Check in was fast and easy. We were asked if we had a preference for close or far from the elevators, high or low floors. Very nice to have a choice. we chose an upper floor far from the elevators. Our room had a large window with a view of the lake (and parking lot area). We had a mini fridge and a flat screen TV, two double beds and a small table and chairs. The carpeting and furnishings were clean, but looked a bit worn, and since our room was free, we didnt mind at all. It was similar to what we would expect from a mid-priced chain motel. We played in the Casino and enjoyed the buffet, and had a quiet night's sleep. We didnt hear noises from the hallway and were impressed by how quiet our stay was. Nothing fancy here, but a solid night of rest. The bathroom was very clean, water pressure was good and the water got nice and hot. There was a large urn of complimentary coffee in the Bar area of the lobby and we checked out with two cups for the road. All in all, our stay was the same as the Hampton Inn next door, minus the pool and breakfast buffet. We look forward to returning again, soon.

Room Tip: As for a lake view on an upper floor.

We live about 45 minutes to this river boat casino & hotel. They always send us free coupons for free night stay at hotel/ free meal at deli/ free buffet/ free slot money/sweepstakes etc. We spend atleast one night out of a month at this casino & Hotel. The service people are very nice. If you are just fond of little gambling on slots or blackjack, this casino would not disappoint you at all. If you are a big time gambler than this is not your place to be at as it is not one of those Lasvegas giant casinos. The hotel is very decent and quiet. The security is beyond the expectations, Despite of having some rough people around due to a casino, We never had any issues. We have found our rooms clean and well taken care of all the time. If they can add a pool/spa/fitness room on site, this could be a very nice get away. The dont serve a freebreakfast like other hotels do in the area but you may just go to breakfast buffet at casino boat and it could be a complimentary breakfast as well if you spent little bucks on gambling a night before. We will keep seeing them for atleat about a month for sure as it is a very nice get away for my wife & I.

Room Tip: nothing really,

Nothing too special. Decent price. Good size room. No complimentary continental breakfast. No lap pool. No hot tub. Pillows were fiber filled and soft. Bed frame squeaked horribly. We had asked to be upgraded, was told when we checked in we would be upgraded. No upgrade. No perks added for inconvienience. The lobby was beautiful. Literally @200 yards to the casino. Definately needs better mattresses. No pillow top. This was a king deluxe room. It did have a mini fridge, an in room safe, coffee maker, iron and board and complimentary daily paper, flat panel tv and the room chairs were very comfortable. The housekeeping staff did a great job of cleaning. I dont think we will stay here again. We will go back to Embassy Suites.

Room Tip: If you are going to the casino it doesnt matter which room you get, this is a prime location. Howev...

Just a heads up... I stayed at this hotel just for one night and it was terrible. The bathroom was dirty with towels still on the floor. I called the front desk for cleaning service and they said someone will be up ASAP for cleaning... 2 hours later someone came up...
When I checked in, the front desk agent was basically the most unknowledgeable person I have ever met. I asked her about the casino and she only told me where it was and that was it. I asked her about the gaming tables and she again said she knew nothing and gave me my keys and bascially just left...
POOR guest service.

First off, the hotel is fine. But they don't comp you as easily as others do. We've been comp'ed by many IL and IA hotel / casinos but never here. We just stayed here for the first time in about 2 years. We'd stayed at the Orleans in LV (a Boyd property) and had been comp'ed there, too. It meant nothing here.

The slots were awful. It wasn't just a losing trip, it was really, really tight slots. No one around me was winning. it was terrible. On the night we were there, there was a craps tournament so the craps tables were were either part of the tournament or had a $10 minimum. That sucked.

There were a few open BJ tables but our luck was bad there, too. All told, it was a bad trip made worse by tight slots. We won't be going back.

Room Tip: Good luck trying to get an upgrade.

Sally, we are very sorry that your trip did not go as planned. We have checked into your play and it did warrant a comp. You will be receiving a letter from upper management very soon.

My husband hosted a business conference at the hotel and they were very accommodating to him...I am certain they want their business again next year. However, our room was never made up one day, so I had to call for clean towels. The hotel is a very short walk from the Casino....which is very convienient. That is also where the restaurants are. We tried the breakfast buffet that was very reasonable,,,but then found out....you get what you pay for. The bar was nice but very small.
