We stayed here for a little couple's getaway. We chose this hotel because we it was close the casino and it had a whirlpool suite and they gave us $10 per person Rewards Play at the casino per day that we stayed. In the hotel lobby, they had both candles and incense burning. It kind of made me wonder what...

Though I'm glad you enjoyed our location being so close to the casino as well as our whirlpool suite, I wish the rest of your stay was just as big of a hit. I'm so sorry our breakfast let you down. As you mentioned, a few of our breakfast machines were giving us trouble that week, and I apologize if...

Great value and location at this value property. The price was exceptional and the room was very clean and comfortable. Two of my favorite room features included the fancy shower head and the comfortable mattress. I also enjoyed the fancy coffee maker and the fact that there was an in room refrigerator and microwave. The morning breakfast was also adequate....

Super experience. Clean, fresh smelling facility. Room was spacious and spotless. It's a quirk, but the towels matter to me and this hotel has nice thick ones that don't have that burned in the dryer smell that seems to accompany rooms at this rate level. Overall an A= experience. Nearby Road House had very good burgers and more friendly service....

You could travel the world staying in hotels every night and I doubt you'd find a worse front desk staff anywhere. The kid working the day shift is the worst I've ever seen and the night girl wasn't much better. This hotel obviously doesn't believe in cash, despite having things for sale, and when I voiced my frustration that they...
