Ever visit a casino, and then complain because you did not win? Seriously?
Did you think they built those huge buildings on donations?
Anyway, for January of this year, they started a Friday nite room special for the hotel, at about 50% off the normal rate, so we decided to give it a shot. They also have a casino package, for each person in the room.
The casino package is $5 off a meal at any of the onsite restaurants, $5 in promo cash for the slot machines, a free drink coupon, for whatever you like, and $5 in promo cash for bingo.
Anyway, the personnel at the front desk were great, the room was great, the people in the Fire-keeper's Restaurant were great, we ate in the bar area. Ask for Gary...tell him Geno sent you.
That is all we can say, we had a nice swim in the small-medium pool, and spent some relaxing time in the hot-tub, and looked a the two(2) excercise bikes in the excercise room.
Did we win at the casino? No...that is why they call it gambling...BUT, it was fun, and after all, if you go to a casino, do you seriously plan on winning, or just spending some money for the same rush you feel when riding a roller coaster?
You know it will eventually end, you just put on your big boy underwear, and enjoy the ride....
