“did not like it”
Reviewed 29 September 2010

We stayed a Fri night while visiting upper Michigan to gamble. I went to the casino and was disappointed when they told me the hotel was up the road. Then I saw it was the old Holiday Inn (remodeled). This building dates me and I'm 48. Anyway- it was decent, but noisy. 8:30 am I could hear noise in the hall (cleaning people) and everyone in the room next to me and above me. Bring ear plugs if you stay. No restaurant in the hotel- you need to drive to the casino. The hotel gave me coupons for food discounts, so I go to the casino, stand in line at the restaurant only to be told I couldn't use them. I had to trade them for vouchers at the players club. This is a big casino and 3 people worked the players club. It took 20 minutes to get through the line. I had to do it more than once- actually three times (one when I got there, one to get a voucher for the buffet and one because my players card didn't work). What a waste of time. So, I stand in a long line at the players club only to be told I didn't need to exchange the food discount slip for a voucher. That shows how disorganized the casino was. It was that way with everyone. No one cared, they just wanted our money- which they took. The chef's at the buffet were rude and jsut didn't seem "experienced". Waitresses in the restaurant- never refilled drinks. Everyone, everywhere was rude. Plus, These are the tighest slots in the north. Needless to say, my wife and I went to turtle Creek for Sat night. The hotel was great- we even won a few times. Completely different. Yes it was crowded at TC, but for a reason.
