We stayed Friday and Saturday night for my birthday...First the rooms are very very small for the amount of money you pay...I have stayed at many "resorts" and this is NOT a resort. It was 500 and something for 2 nights and the rooms, to me, looked like something you would see at a Days Inn...bathrooms are small as well. Walls are paper then...you hear everything. Sunday morning our neighbors alarm clock went off at 5:30am and it woke us both up...it proceeded to beep for 45 min. We thought someone had left and just forgot to shut the alarm clock off...this wasn't the case. It sounded like it was in our room. Needless to say, we drove back up to Indy at 7am on Sunday...When we talked to the front desk supervisor (We were polite but wanted someone to know) She could honestly care less...seriously, she didn't care..."oh I'm sorry, that will be $550" I was shocked, I mean we weren't looking for free stuff, just someone to listen. You would have thought they would want feedback...but they didn't. We are both in our early 30's...and love to travel, but the rooms here really are not worth price. The casino was okay...we are both not huge gamblers, it was fun, but nothing I would write home about. Honestly, if you rarely leave the house or haven't gone anywhere ever, (which is fine) then you will probably like this, but if you travel or enjoy nice dinners, you will not be impressed.
We had dinner Friday night at Diamond J's in t he casino, the service was really poor...but the food was ok...Breakfast at the buffet Sat. morning, it was a buffet..but pretty good...it was 21.00 for 2 people. We had dinner at the 18 something steakhouse...the food was good...we have eaten at places like Sullivan's, Eddie Merlots, St. Elmo's in Indy...and its like that....however, the prices are crazy....$48 for a 8oz. Filet....I mean we will pay money for really good food, but this was more then any place we have ever eaten in Indy. It was almost like they are trying to hard.
The one thing we did like was the spa...we got couples massages and they were nice...the therapists were really great!
