It had been probably 15 years since we stayed there last and can probably say it all is the same as it was then. It is kept up and clean, but it is outdated. Needs to have some reno done to it to keep up with the other casinos along the river.

We stayed at the Rising Sun Casino Hotel for the first time last night. The room was great--clean, spacious with a wonderfully comfortable bed. We found the entire hotel property to be spic and span! The hotel clerks were the only employees we had interaction with and they were courteous and helpful. Our check in was easy without hassle--however we...

My friend received a free room from Rising Star and when we checked in, they said our room wasn't ready yet, but if we wanted to stay at The Lodge instead, they could get us in a room right away. So, decided to give it a try. Room was spacious, but wished it had a refrigerator. Beds were very comfortable....

Grove City, Ohio

Has anyone else experienced a problem with the ticket cash out machines? We attempted to use one and received the bills but not the coins. There was no error indicated on the machine, it just did not dispense the coins. While I waited for my wife to find someone to help there were other patrons cashing out on the machine next to mine. They had the same problem but decided that it was not worth waiting when I told them that my wife had been gone for over 10 minutes to find someone. I warned other people that attempted to use the machine and they went to another location. My wife returned and told me that someone was being called to help. Several minutes later an employee arrived and placed both machines out of order. He then left stating that a security guard would need to open the machine. Another employee came by and told me that it was shift change for security and it would be a while. Eventually a security guard and the first employee arrived and opened the machine. I was immediately given the money that I told them was due me. I remained and observed what was then done with the machine. The employee tried to leave without answering my question regarding what happened but when pressed stated that coins were jammed. I asked about the sensor verifying that the money was paid out and he told me that the sensor is placed before the channel that coins travel on the way out to be collected. If this is a known problem and is not being addressed it appears that this is a very good profit center. Anyone else note this?
