Stop here for an inviting ambience and excellent service. Not only do they take excellent care to please, but the food is also excellent. They have wonderful dips which are great while you are waiting for the main course. The dining room is far enough away from the casino

It seems that it’s common that front desk staff don’t sit in the front, but in the little room off to the side of the desk. So you end up waiting and hoping they hear you and come out to help. Their computers sit on the high side so there’s not great interaction with the

There is a pet fee - it is a one time charge. The hotel allows up to two pets, but again only 1 fee charged once for up to a continuous week's stay.

There is a nice large area with more than one sani-station available and guests are usually very good about keeping the dog walk area clean. The area is safe and is lighted at night. I would be sure and have a leash since the main thoroughfare (Idaho Street) runs right in front of the hotel. The front desk could give you more information concerning our pet policy. Thank you!
