Typically when traveling, we prefer large, vegas-type casinos but we took a chance on this one (advertised as 17,000 sq ft). Although it was farther from the interstate than we thought, it was well worth the trip. Lots of small denomination slots, $4.00 mixed drinks, clean spacious rooms, and a great breakfast buffet. The staff was very nice and the coffee was outstanding! We would definitely go back on our next road trip west.
