  • Service was good. We stayed out here one night out of many trips to Wendover. The rooms were not near as nice or roomy as others. The hallways were also not very clean. One time was enough  more »
  • This hotel/casino is definitely older than the flashier Montego Bay, but the slots were as much fun and it was not crowded or too smoky.  more »
