  • We stayed here and it was an awesome place. Rooms were roomy and very comfortable. Bathrooms were updated and awesome. Great staff at this casino. 
  • My first review of this resort (June 2015) was very positive, so it pains me to reveal the problems we encountered on this recent 2-night trip (which is why my rating has decreased). I booked a ‚Äúpremi...  more »

  • I had an hour to kill before dinner at Rurt Chris an wanted to play a little Joker Poker. The parking was free so what could go wrong? What was wrong g was I felt like I'd walked into the Port Authority Bus Terminal and someone had install slot machines. My fellow gamblers were smoking cigarettes like it was their last day. The general ambience was that of poorly kept restroom. The slots were mostly new and attractive. The people were the ones your Mom warned you about.
  • The food and floor are great. Large senior citizen attendance. Ample parking. I withheld one star because the room I stayed was small and bland. For the cost, I expect more. The view was OK, but not great. I often visit for gambling or food, but rarely stay in the hotel.
  • Horrible. Our room was disgusting and smelled horrible. It was also very outdated. The bathroom was really gross. Food was medicore at best. We were supposed to get a ocean front nonsmoking room and we got a smoking room and no view what so ever. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Only redeeming quality was the staff. Very nice.
  • As a hotel it's not bad. I just hate casinos... everything about them. We stayed there because some much loved relatives are hugely into gambling and were able to get us rooms at no cost. Otherwise, I wouldn't go near one of these places. That said, the restaurants are good and the domestic staff does a good job. The rooms themselves are nice. Huge bathrooms!
  • Great place to spend a day. Very clean casino with friendly people. Iv'e been going there for 5yrs and never had a bad experience. Would visit again.
