This was my second stay at the Santa Claran. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff looked and found discounts that gave us a better price on our room. Unfortunately, I lost all the savings at the Casino.

I ad the County Skillet & my wife had the Prime Skillet. Both dishes came out hot and tasted great. The service was fast and friendly. They breakfast until 11:30, you can't order from the lunch menu until then. We'll be coming back again!

My husband and I stayed here in order to make it to an early morning surgery the next day at the nearby hospital. The rooms at the hotel are nice enough, with big walk-in showers and real wooden doors. There's a nice little coffee stand downstairs that opens at 6am. A night watchman patrols the parking lot, which is very...

I'm only rating the bowling alley, as I've not yet stayed at the hotel or gambled at the casino. This is the only bowling center in town, and it's a fun place to go. It's attached to the hotel/casino, and can be reached either directly from the parking lot (there are ample spaces in front and in back) or through...

The Santa Claran Hotel Casino was absolutely beautiful. The view from my 6th floor room was amazing! The room itself was immaculate. Clean, incredibly large, complete with beautiful fixtures and great beds. I love that the shower had body wash, shampoo and conditioner in pump bottles on the wall. The towels were plush, the water was hot and water pressure...

The hotel is beautiful. The only complaint I have is that there were cobwebs in all the corners and on the walls of the room we stayed in and also on the walls and ceilings in the lobby. The room we stayed in was not very clean. The toilet rim looked dirty. but the hotel looks fairly newer and the...
