I spent over $2000 gambling at the casino and was refused to have my hotel room comped by the casino host staff. Do not recommend this casino for more serious gamblers because comps are very inconsistent. There was a mentally disturbed man in the casino shouting loudly for a very long time. Casino security did nothing to stop the situation.... More

Stopped in for the buffet. It is as nice as some of the smaller Vegas properties, but no drink service on the floor. The parking lot was a mess. I lost my obligatory $5 and left. I can't say I would go out my way to visit this place except the excellent buffet.

This is a nice out of the way casino. For those of you that like to play slot machines, this is awesome. The casino had a lot of people but is big enough for you to enjoy. Your not elbow to elbow. The Cantina was inexpensive and a good Mexican food place to eat. The salsa was fantastic. The price... More

I have had incidents with so-called "Gang-Bangers" the last few times I have visited this casino. Incidents of intimidation both in the casino and in the parking lot, and the casino security does nothing to curb it. It just a bad situation that makes me feel unsafe.

I passed by this casino and decided to check it out. It is a large casino. Canadian Casino Size. It was very clean. The air was good and they had lots of gaming options including 1-3NL Holdem. Lots of parking. Would come back here.
