Real small, but has plenty of different slots to try your hand at. Cant get lost here, unlike the bigger ones. Sometimes the machines pay out better than other times. You just never know. Thats gambling.

We come to this spot to eat in their restaurant and play the machines. The food is pretty good, full bar service, and the choice of machines in better than most. They sometimes have a good buffet (mostly Sunday or special days like Mother's Day)....More

I'm usually a hotel snob and only but I really enjoyed this hotel and the casino. I love that the hotel allows pets, and it's in a good location close to restaurants and activities. The casino actually pays decently compared to others I've been to....More

This casino has three small rooms with gambling machines. There are enough machines to move around when your machine is not paying out. You can always take a break by going to the bar or restaurant or go swimming in the indoor pool.

The parking lot isn't that big , but if you get there early enough I can see why not, but I would check if it's ok first with the hotel.
