We tried Sugar House and liked the variety of slots and easy parking. We did not stay that long the smell of smoke was awful and when we left we could smell the smoke on our clothes.

Stick to AC or any other casino. It's loaded with smoke. Low dollar machines and tables, seems to be catering to lower income visitors. The employees aren't happy, the clientele isn't happy. The whole place sucks and you leave miserable.
