This is a nice hotel with great clean comfortable rooms. I would defiantly stay again for the price. Rooms were really well decorated and up to date. Has the feel of a very expensive hotel for the price of a cheep motel. We were on our way to St Louis and needed a place to stay for the night and the price was so good we could not pass it up. But there are some negatives that should be mentioned. You should know this hotel/casino has an almost all 65+ clientele as someone mentioned it is a great place for "snowbirds" or retirees getting away for cold. Me and my husband really wanted a good night sleep this place was great because it was really quiet. But this place would be boring for young kids.
Despite the beautiful look of the place(inside) it does tend to have a slightly musky smell to the place, but it is not horrible like some hotels. This is not a hotel for a family vacation, there is really nothing in the town of Metropolis, not even basic stores. To get anything that can not be found at a dollar general or the local (non chain)supermarket and a couple fast food places you have to drive back 25-30 mins across the state line to Paducah. The neighborhood and view from outside is pretty bad. I was not very optimistic driving in even with the good reviews. But I was pleasantly surprised with the inside of the hotel and the room itself. We got the room for 32$ including tax if you use the hotels website and most of the websites posted at 41 before taxes. The room itself could easily go for 100+ if it were in a good neighborhood closer to the freeway.
As far as casino's go, if you are not a retiree, I doubt you would enjoy. It is small and not anything like the Vegas casinos(heck it is not even close off the strip small casinos in Vegas) I used to live by an Indian casino in a fairly remote area and it was 3 times as big.
My biggest problem was finding decent food. No free breakfast, and I do not eat a big breakfast so the buffet was too expensive for a light breakfast, so our only real option was McDonalds. And we could not leave early because we had a phone meeting in the morning so we were kind of stuck. If I were to go here again I would stop at a store in Paducah and bring something to eat with me. The room has a mini fridge and great big tub.
