Nasty, stinky, complicated machines designed to extract $ from your pocket ASAP. Maybe the foods good, I don't know, because you could smell stale alcohol & cigs from the parking lot..

Great place to stop for eats. Beautiful restaurant area overlooking the river. Excellent Sunday Brunch. We have stopped here many times and the food is always good. This time we had breakfast and it was great! Played the casino for abit before travelling on. Have not overnighted here but it looks pretty nice. Nice decor and everyone is always friendly.... More

Great view of the river. Bathroom was renovated and was lovely. Room was fine. Very Spacious. Breakfast was included. Slow service, limited selection for the "free" breakfast, but view was lovely and food was fine.

Stopped in for dinner on my way through and wasn't impressed with the new menu. We have stopped in the past and even stayed there a time or two and enjoyed it. Not sure why they changed the menu but they remove some of our favorites, changed portions and increased prices slightly. I plan to give it another chance as... More

We have stayed here many times. Always ask for a room on the second floor overlooking the river. Staff is friendly and efficient. Lots of parking. Across the street from the old downtown, which has some good restaurants and the Heart Rock Wines store.

We were overcharged for the room but they wouldn't correct it. Asked for help to use ATM because it wasn't working. Cashier said they sometimes go out because of the wind and that we would have to walk a block away through a tunnel to go to the bank (which we didn't want to do at night). Next morning we... More

First casino hotel we stayed at on our vacation to northwest. Stopped here on our way back from Canada. Small casino with lots of penny slots and one video blackjack table. Hubby won $500 in like 20 minutes! I won $400 later that night, but got greedy & spent it all back. Fun time though. Rooms were nice; little balcony... More
