My husband and I spent Feb 18/12 at the Silver Reef Hotel. We were very pleased with the property and the good impression started before we entered the hotel. It was a rainy, windy afternoon in Ferndale, and when we parked in the lot, as I was getting out of the car, the parking lot security SUV appeared at the foot of our car and offered us a ride to the hotel front door. How nice was that?! We were a few hours early to check in so we spent some time in the casino while we waited. The casino has most of the latest games and we had some luck. They also have a separate non-smoking slot area with a good selection of machines if that's what you are looking for. We had a small problem with my husband's players card points, but the casino floor staff managed to resolve it to our satisfaction. Check-in at the hotel was a breeze, and the front desk staff were friendly and cheerful. The room was nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. I was a little surprised, as one other poster remarked, that the TV was not a flat screen, but, whatever. We were just steps from the elevator and I worried that we might hear people coming and going all night as the casino is open 24 hours, but that was not the case. We both slept very well. My only complaint with the room was that it didn't have a little refrigerator, and I sorely missed having one. We ate that night at the Steak House, which was marvelous. The food and the service was top notch. The portions were so large that there was no way we could finish our meals or even attempt a dessert. I would have had our leftovers packed up and taken them with us, but we had no fridge to put them in. :(
During a conversation with a hotel employee the following day, we came to learn that some rooms do have fridges, but you have to specifically ask for one at booking. I'll remember that for next time, because there will certainly be a next time. All in all, a lovely weekend getaway and I'm already looking forward to going back to the Reef.
