Our room was very nice, with a big, comfortable bed. There was no fridge or microwave in the room, but the concierge heated my wife's corn bag in the staff break room at the front desk. The room was spacious & bathroom was a good size, with a large mirror. There is no complementary breakfast - food is available by...

We have stayed here 3 times since 2012 as the rooms are clean and the price is right. We usually get the play and stay package which is 30 dollars of food coupons, and 20 dollars of free play of 99.00. I think you can book a room for 50.00 bucks and the rooms are always clean and they have...

On vacation and stayed over on the "stay & play" package. Clean room, Friendly desk clerk and the waitress in the dining area was absolutely hospitable!! All of this made us overlook the paper thin walls where you wake up hearing "Everything" at 5am and a headboard loudly hitting your wall.

Hotel needs a lot of work. The rooms are in desperate need of updating. The smell of smoke and a very sweet smell of something the use to mask the smell of smoke made me absolutely miserable during my one night stay. Food was good didn't go into casino as I was apparently allergic to what they were using to...

Hotel carpet was rippling in the room & hallways. Room was clean but could use a little updating. Didn't eat at the restaurant but did try our luck in the casino. Staff was very friendly at the players club card registration area. We will visit again.

Working in the area, stayed four nights here. Great place, nice rooms, quiet, and the most TV channels I have ever seen. Good food in the restaurant and right down the street too. The casino is also very nice and the customer service was great, all the way through.

Stayed at the RV park which provides only electric but the price id right. The casino and hotel are showing signs of old age and in need of some work. A good coat of paint and maybe a few upgrades. The casino is laid out nicely but a manly perfume about it which I'm sure is to mask the nicotine...

We were visiting family in Brookings and thought we would take a drive to this casino just to check it out. Living in Las Vegas we like looking at different casinos on our travels.

“I think the rooms are quite. You may want a middle or lower floor if it is windy or you can hear the fans on the roof.”
