How this place got 4/5 stars is beyond me. We booked two nights here. We sort of went with another couple. When I say sort of, the husbands stayed the first night (while us moms stayed back with the kids), then we switched out and us girl's stayed the second night (while the boys stayed home with the kids). I'm explaining this for a reason.
The second night, the girls arrived. We went to the front desk to request a shuttle to the casino. The lobby was full and included some shady looking people. The front desk clerk announced that she remembered our husbands the night prior and commented how they were at home with the kids and we were alone. She also announced our room number, audible enough for the entire lobby to hear. Gee, thanks.
The parking lot was very loud, ALL NIGHT, and there were people sitting on the stairway. We had to ask them to move so we could get to our 2nd floor room. Kids up playing all hours, people running up and down the breezeway, morons gunning their engines, and the LOUD train. We caught maybe 4 hours of sleep. We considered driving the hour back home, but didn't want to risk it because we were so tired.
The room was very stinky and there was a brown stain (of questionable nature) on the bedskirt. The hot/cold shower knobs were on backwards and it took some time to figure out, not to mention the shower pipe had come uncaulked from the tile and was hanging out. There was a gap in the (closed) front door and daylight was actually streaking in the next morning.
I emailed management about the clerk announcing our info and didn't get anywhere. Never again.
