This hotel has is a little old and outdated but honestly it served it's purpose. Beds were clean and comfortable....They have a fast free shuttle directly to the casino....if I could change one thing it would be that I should have checked the alarm before fell into bed. The person who used the room before me clearly had the gambling...

My husband and I arrived on a Friday night at 9:00 p.m. we had a 2 hour drive so we immediately used the restroom as soon as we got there. The restrooms were disgusting both the women's and men's (according to my husband) stunk like pee and my shoes stuck to the ground. It was so nasty. They give good...

The best thing about this buffet is their fried chicken and catfish. Everything else is only average. I did notice that this place could use a good cleaning, although it is much cleaner than the casino and its property. It is by far the dirtiest, dreary and dingy casino that I have ever been to.

Whatever is in the air in the casino saturates ones's clothing with a repugnant odor. I think this is their attempt to control smoking odors, but whatever they use gets in your hair and clothing for days. I repeat it's not the cigarette smoke. It;s the stuff they use to control the cigarette smoke that permeates everything.

Wanted to look at site and explore. Nothing that impressed me . Would not go back. looks worn down . many older slot machines , which I play. I wanted to go somewhere different and this was not the answer.

A friend and I were just passing through. The room was nicer than I expected. There was a complimentary microwave in the lobby as well as a computer with wifi. The staff at the front desk gave us a discount on the room and let us use cash to book the room. They also gave us menus to nearby restaurants...

Hotel was our stop late at night. Wanted to get around Chicago to avoid traffic. Hotel was adequate with decent pillows and sheets. Older in nature, Rate it 2.5 stars. Just stayed to sleep. People were nice. Went to casino and it was very friendly! Casino is unique whereas it was on two boats. Nothing fancy but won some money.

The staff doesn't seem to know how to greet guests, a robot would do as good a job, or probably better. Above all the room on the 3rd floor was very noisy ALL NIGHT. Probably too close to the casino or sound-proofing is too poor. Not an option if you want a good sleep! And Wifi is unusable

First time coming into town and wanted a solid 1-2. Two tables on a monday. Solid game even past 5am. Would come back again next time through town. Other places in area make sure you call ahead cause they don't all have cash games.

Room is clean and neat. Bed is super comfortable. Front desk staff is very friendly as well as other staff. Lobby is modern and welcoming. A great place to wait for the casino shuttle. Hotel shuttle to casino nearby is very quick and runs very regular. It was our second visit and we weren't disappointed.
