I loved this casino when I was there in 2016, but was extremely disappointed in 2018. It is severely run down, the machines are in disrepair. Time for a make over!!!

This casino is located at the Holiday Inn Resort. Nice if you want to take time away from the usual vacation hot spots or you can't sleep. Slot machine play is limited due the fact that many of the machines did not work.

Dirty, smells and much nicer casinos close by. Hard to get drink service, once we did get a drink, didn't taste right.

I would avoid the excelsior casino at all costs. Half the machines didnt work. Another 25 percent either wouldn't take your money or give money back once it was in the machine. Very dated as well and small.

Not our favorite casino. Never too many people in there, so easy to go in and sit at a table. Mostly stuck to Black Jack which is fun, but overall the casino was really small.
