Stayed January 5-7, 2014.
This was my first stay at the Casino Rama Hotel and it was great. By far it the best hotel in the area. I received the promotional rate of $129 per night. On booking I had requested a complimentary upgrade since it was a special occasion for my wife and I and the attendant noted this on file and said they would try. When I arrived the front desk staff called the players advantage desk to ask about an upgrade and I was told no. Its based on how much you play in the casino - if you're not a big spender, no upgrade - regardless if rooms are available or not. Room service is very good value for money, casino is a good size (for Canadian casinos) and Spa/Pool/Gym area very nice. There is a club floor and lounge on the top floor but those are the 'upgraded' rooms or cost $599 (I was told at the time). Casino Rama has several good restaurants on site (especially the buffet inside the casino) so no need to leave the resort. Get a players advantage card in the casino - it will save you $2 at some of the restaurants. Our standard rooms was quite spacious and included a fireplace and sofa (with sofabed) in addition to a King Bed. Coffee makers are provided but you have to ask for it.
