Great clean rooms and a huge pool w slide even for adults to enjoy. Casino isn't too smoky, restaurants feature great food and live music. Only way it could be better is to have an in room Jacuzzi tub!

It was great to have enough light to read in bed. Loved the mirror headboard. Breakfast was good and enough sitting room. Andy was very helpful at check in. Walking distance to casino, but shuttle was always on time.
