Was our 10th wedding anniversary the hotel was nice big roomy room but had a free buffet and they would not honor it due to a mistake the printers made so that was a damper on our night had to get in the car and find another place to eat.The casino was ok but very very tight machines can hardly win anything.

After traveling for 8 hours we wanted somewhere with a comfy bed & a clean room. We called ahead for rates & they were not to bad with the AARP discount. Pulled in around 8pm checked in & they asked for our aarp card, hubby pulled out & she said they could not accept it because it expired last month. I said are you kidding ???? She said, no sorry. Being tired we said whatever charge us the full amount. Got to our room & it had not been cleaned in fact it was filthy. Went back to the desk they gave us a different room which that room wasn't the cleanest but we were so tired & have been screwing around with getting into a room for 45 min we overlooked it went to bed & got the heck out of there as fast as we could the next morning. Not a good experiance....

A friend and I attended a show (Kris Kristoferson) at Lakeside Casino. We ate at one of the bars beforehand avoiding the ridiculously long line at the buffet which continued to be long till after 8 PM. We each had a hot dog and a beer and it was ok for bar food. The worst part was the smoky atmosphere throughout, which is what I really hate about casinos. The casino itself was rather small I thought and busy but that isn't surprising on a Friday night.
The concert was good although I thought the tickets were a bit pricey ($60) for just a chair on the floor, no raised seating. It's basically a huge conference room with a stage on one side and then they just set up chairs for the concert. The sound and lighting were adequate, everything started on time and Kris played for 90 minutes. It was a very enjoyable time.
We didn't stay in the hotel but they were full and are in the process of adding on so business must be good. All in all I would go back for a show but would probably avoid the buffet again. I'm not a fan of waiting in long lines.

Our latest visit to Terrible's was a 2 night stay to see a show and spend some time in the casino. We hadn't been to Terribles is several years and was dissapointed to see that the property has gone down-hill some since then. The rooms have not been kept up as there were holes in the blinds, loose tiles on the bathroom floor, a wedge of wood stuck out from beneath the toilet to keep it level etc. Aside from the physical condition of the room it was very clean. They are building a new wing onto the hotel and a sign promises that the old rooms will get a face lift after the new side opens. The hotel staff were all very nice and helpful. Other than the room, we were very dissapointed in the restaurant with both the quality of food and the terrible servive (no pun intended). The casino was about the same as I recall but was in need of some good housekeeping. I'm hopefull that the new hotel will put some new life into the rest of the property; we'll have to see when it opens next year. I will not be going back until then.

Room Tip: Lower floors have walkout to lake and lake view

This all suite hotel provides rooms much larger than most commercial properties. The low rate included two breakfast buffets.
The suite is well appointed with Microwave and a refrigerator. High speed internet access is provided. A great place to stay and play their games, too.
