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.

We were visiting from FL...was a comfortable place in a beautiful setting...loved the Heart Rock and Wildlife Refuge. Also, a good starting place to visit BC.

We had a great time gambling while we were at the Hotel. They had a great variety of slot machines. The only draw back was no table games. They did have a black jack game that I won $500.00.

We liked the slot machines here- lots of action and lights, camera, action. I saw people actually winning a lot of money. They did not always plow it back.

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.
