This place reminded me of the seedy casino in the movie "Reindeer Games". I didn't notice much filth. The curtains, the walls, the floors, the restrooms, and the game areas were all clean. The parking lot had some trash in it. The front door glass needed cleaning. The sidewalk was littered with old gum residue and some large stains near the front door.The casino looks old and out-dated. I specifically looked for overall cleanliness. However, if I hadn't been looking for cleanliness, I wouldn't have much good to say about Cities of Gold. The age of the facility completely over-shadows whatever good there may be.
Inside the casino, the bar area was dirty. The bar tender said he hated his job and wanted out.
The buffet was disgusting. It was over-priced for the quality of food and selection. The tables were worn out. The walls were damaged.
I went to the Snack Bar inside the Bingo area. A candy bar is almost $3.00. This is what I would expect to pay at the State Fair. Everything was over priced. What a joke. No other casino I've ever been to tries to take advantage of customers so blatantly. It's a CASINO. You should not have to capitalize on candy bar and potato chip profits. When you treat your customers like fools, you will eventually LOSE. I expected a slightly inflated price for snack and food items but NOT 3X more than any gas station or store like Walmart, Target, Albertsons, etc.
The cigarette smoke was over powering. There was NO escape. It was hard to breath.
Employees were unavailable to help me. One of the slots I was playing malfunctioned. I waited for an hour. Nobody came to help.
There are far better places to go! Whomever runs this place is seriously out of touch with reality.
