A very dated hotel/casino whose sole mission is to take as much as possible from the retires of Iowa and Tama county. Its sad really the place was always filled with folks that are 70 plus during our stay and I never remember seeing anyone jumping up and down about winning big money on any gaming tables or slot machines....

We had heard about this casino and had the opportunity to visit so we did. We were there Friday night (busy and crowded) and Saturday mid morning (the opposite. Very large casino for the area and hard to navigate. Not a huge variety of games, but it was fine for awhile

I can usually walk away with more than I bring in (slots). I can't say the slots are looser there over others, but I like the atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend this as a place to work however. As an American Indian establishment, they can legally post that they are looking to employ others from their tribe and native americans in... More

In the past we have stayed at the hotel several times, very nice.... why we went back several times before we became locals. The buffet is very good and compared to other casino buffets we thought the food was a little better than normal. The facility is very nice. Between class reunions the Pow Wow and gaming they make you... More

Ordered our dinner and as we were waiting for our salads, my wife saw the waiter reaching into a bin to grab the lettuce for our plates. Bare handed and no gloves. I saw the manager and called him over. He said they use gloves and the salads are already prepared ahead of time. When the waiter came over, I... More

The main casino area is very smoky. The buffet area has a hint of smoke, but it's not bad. The excellent buffet more than makes up for it. The lines are very long on the weekends. Weekdays, get there when they open at 4 PM and you'll get right in. The prices are much less expensive during the week, especially... More

We spent a night at the adjacent hotel and spent a couple of hours in the Casino. The Casino is spacious with a good variety of games. Our only complaint was the smoking. There is a small room that is smoke free but the size and variety of machines is not very large. Perhaps one of these days the casinos... More

Service was very good. Food was good for fast food. The area was non-smoking and the employees were friendly. The atmosphere was a casino type.
