I will start with the good the bed was comfortable. The room was nicely decorated.
Now to the bad........
Who chooses pale yellow for directional signs??????? We had never been there and drove up to stay at the hotel to go to the ChristkindleMarket the next day. Upon entering the hotel/resort we ended up in the Casino Parking Garage which after driving around for a bit we figured out. The directional signs outside are in small pale yellow print on a stainless steel background. We decided that the hotel would most likely have a defined entrance and we would drive around and hopefully be able to pick it out. After 20 minutes with 3 adults watching for signs we did find it and we able to unload and then find parking. The hotel was full when we had tried to book our reservation and we only able to get one room. We were waiting for them to call if they had any other availability and they did not call us back. I had called to check in the morning before we drove up and they did have a room available which we reserved. When we did actually find the hotel entrance they gave us the the newly reserved room at a much higher rate, when we explained that we were supposed to be called if a room became available and we should get the original booking rate the obliged after consulting with a manager. We had the kids with us as we were taking them to Christkindlemarket and then the Happy Elf at the John Brown Ice House Theater. We went to check out the pool it is literally the smallest pool I have ever seen in any hotel it would be comparable to the size of the pool you could buy at Walmart and set up in your yard. My son slipped next to the pool the concrete is actually pretty slippery when wet. We went then to dinner the fact that we had kids with us meant that we had to have an escort by security across the casino floor to see any of the restaraunts. Actually that didn't matter because all the restaraunts had a two hour wait with the exception of the buffet which was $60.00 a person, because it was lobster night. So we ended up eating at the food court which is similar to a mall food court with the exception of the prices and the fact that they did not appear to be independant restaraunts but different versions of casino food. A double bacon cheeseburger was $16.00 that price did get you fries though we got a burger there and for the prices it should have been the best dam burger ever but no not really.
I guess if you really just wanted to gamble and werent going to stay or eat there maybe this place would work for you. ChristkindleMarket and The Play were super great if you happen to be in Bethlehem around Christmas time.
