I stayed here for 4 nights straight and had a pretty good time. Before I booked my stay, I read all 800+ reviews trying to pick out helpful information to plan my stay, which took hours and hours.

After talking to a supervisor, Tim, he found us a king. I don't understand why the front desk lady wasn't able to, but a supervisor had no trouble. The room...

Casino is very small and does not have many table games. I did like the fact that they had 5 dollar tables. It is also VERY smokey inside which I personally did not like. Room was nice, no complaints there. Although, I thought it was funny that the curtains must have been so old that they had all kinds of...

The room and food was good but the gambling was a rip off. Black jack was a joke. Machines were very tight which was disappointing. The Casino was very smokey. Buffet was good. Back Stage restaurant was good.
