I'm always astounded by how people experience things so differently, but I found my stay here to be perfectly fine with everything I needed.
For starters, pulling into the parking lot and up to the entrance took all of 2 seconds, though I could see how this could be time consuming if one were a drunken go-kart operator. Check-in was smooth and I was up to the room in about 2 minutes flat. As requested, I got a second floor room that was a bit off to the side and in a quiet area. The room itself served it's purpose and had no major issues. It's not the Ritz, but it provided everything I needed.
I had planned on heading up to the casino and inquired about the shuttle at the front desk. I was given a card and told to call down when I wanted to go, and they would call the shuttle people and inquire to their whereabouts and then call me back. That sounded somewhat cumbersome, especially for someone like myself who loathes social interaction, so I opted to drive myself. The trip is less than 10 minutes and pretty straightforward; I'd recommend just doin' it yourself, especially if you have a burning desire to get there quickly and get your gamboooooool on.
The surrounding area is somewhat unsightly, but hardly anything crazy for me, having previously worked in inner-city schools. Nonetheless, I would recommend not leaving any valuables in your car and requesting a second floor room to limit any potential outside access. Just do the little things and you'll be fine.
The restaurant next door is a good option for food, with a wide selection of choices and not much else to pick from in the area.
You may do well to request a quieter room, as the freeway is right beside it and could produce some noise. This was not an issue for me, however. Other than that, a solid place to stop if you're just passing through and/or plan on hitting up the casino.
