We wanted to get out of town for an overnight and chose Little River because there was a show scheduled there we knew we would enjoy. The hotel is very nice and the room was ample, clean, and mostly quiet. Keep in mind that it is attached to a casino which means some late night gamblers returning to their rooms during the night. We could hear laughter and talking in the halls as well as room doors closing on and off until about 2 AM. Seems like the room doors close VERY noisily! We had a comfortable king size bed. Check in time is at 4 PM. We were there about an hour before that, hopeful of being able to get into our room a little early, but no luck. We were able to check our bags (free) at the coat check. The hotel offers quick checkout which I would recommend taking advantage of as the checkout lines were long in the morning. We were mailed a copy of our receipt which was a nice touch. There are a variety of dining choices available. We usually go to the buffet where on weekends, there are huge amounts of crab legs and shrimp consumed. Casino is smallish, but even on a busy weekend there were plenty of slots available. Wish they would ban smoking in casinos, though! Thankfully, the room was non-smoking.
