“Carry your smoke detector”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I you enjoy breathing second hand smoke in a casino, this is the best choice. A small area and not many choice for machine to play. Other locations in town for gaming

“Was Okay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I prefer the other local casinos but this one isn't bad. Never has been that crowded when I am there. Smoky when crowded but not overwhelmingly so. People are friendly enough. The attached convenience store is clean and well stocked with standards for that type store. The coffee is good! Gas prices are a couple of cents cheaper than in town. Overall, I will return there but won't eat at their restaurant again, more on that in a separate review. Smokey B's will not get my business again.

“Seems to pay a little better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

It's your average casino, kind if small, but it definitely pays better than the inn of the mountain gods. The restaurant is pretty good.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been going here for years but have become increasingly disappointed in the casino area. They just do not spend enough time or money keeping it clean of litter.

“Buffet was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The buffet was great, but if you can't stand cigaret smoke, than the casino is not right for you. The games are fun, go to the blazing 7s slots, they are my favorite.
