Barebones pleasant room. Dated, but no particular problems with anything. The price is right and the rooms are clean and quiet on the back (north) side of the hotel. Third floor is non-smoking and a welcome relief after walking through the casino.
We avoided the buffet due to comments here, the steakhouse wasn't open, so we ate dinner and breakfast in the coffee shop. Very prompt and pleasant service, but the food is mediocre. Not bad, really, just not quite good. We had to request replacement chicken for the dried-up stuff first served with the Asian salad, and the baked potato served with the small prime rib (quite good) was so long on the warming tray that it was brown on the inside. Breakfast was OK, but no inexpensive casino specials were available.
The hotel/casino is quite isolated from both Henderson and Boulder, so unless one wants to relinquish a shaded parking spot and go elsewhere, one is trapped at the hotel for meals. By no means terrible, but just not really good. We would willingly stay here again if the need should arise. Perhaps the best thing to say about the hotel is that it isn't in Las Vegas.
