After driving in from Portland and getting in around 1030 pm and finding out that they had moved the casino down the hill into town, we got our rooms. The rate was very high and when we got into our room we found a poster on the door saying "Room rates vary from $75 to $1500 per night." For what they were they should be no more than $75. Anyways, when we started looking over the room I noticed that the screen door to the patio was loose and letting in bugs, at least one of the lamps above the bed was loose and would not stay in place, and there was grass under the top blanket of the bed we chose to use. None of these things would have been a major issue if the power had not gone out at 7am the next morning. Come to find out this was a scheduled outage for that building and everyone else that was there had been told about it ahead of time. Needless to say we checked out early and will not be going back.
There is also the point that they no longer have the casino with the hotel, so there is nothing there but a fancy pool to bring people into the resort. While there was a corral for horse back riding and a day spa there, the only thing included in the $175 one night package was a pool pass. From what I remember of the few times going out there growing up, people went for the casino and dropped the kids off at the swimming pool. Without the casino there just isn't much of a draw for most people to go and spend that kind of money.
