We have stayed at the hotel for the past few years. The consistency is their reception staff and the buffet staff who are friendly and really try to please. We ate at the Friday night buffet for $11.95 and it was not worth it at all. In the past, the buffet used to be quite delicious. The fried chicken had a hard coating as if it had been there for quite awhile. The steak was a tasteless salisbury steak which I couldn't eat. The pizzas didn't look appetizing at all. The clam chowder soup had an odd taste. The salad bar was adequate. The breakfast buffet is complimentary for guests. It was just adequate. The king size rooms are roomier and more comfortable than the room with two double beds. In the king size bed room, there is a love seat and a coffee table. There is no love seat in the room with two double beds. The slot machines in the casino used to pay out more money but in the past year they are really tight. During your birthday month, they have a gift for you which amounts to $5 to $10 in casino money. The casino is really smoky but there is a small room for nonsmokers. They seem to be quite busy on the weekends especially when there is a concert.
