Other than the casino accessible from the lobby, the first thing that hits you upon entering is cigarette smoke. Walking to our room: cigarette smoke.

we have stayed here many times and the hotel always comes through with great service and clean rooms. The casino is fun and the great addition of machines that only takes Canadian money is fantastic.. The food is always good in the restaurant and service is wonderful.

Clean, large room. Great large, shower. Beautiful landscaping and a wonderful, friendly, professional staff. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Quiet rooms could not hear any noise once the door was closed.

I have to say this was the best hotel ever. View of the river from our balcony. Everything you would need in the room. Amazing housekeeper. She made animals out of towels like on a cruise. Breakfast was served in the Restaurant. The food was wonderful. The staff were are amazing. Walk to town . Will go back again.
