Stayed four days mid sept. 08. The staff and atmosphere could not be better. The rooms could use a little upgrading , but they are still clean and well equipped.
The gaming and food are great also the bars, especially the sports bar. The downtown location is nothing to be afraid of. There are many casinos and restaurants within a short walk.,and the strip is only a short cab, bus, or car ride away.
We visited the casino 7/8/08 thru 7/11/08. Didn't stay in the hotel but the casino is great.
Best place to eat downtown is the coffee counter just off the casino floor. Order the Hobo Stew w/ cornbread. Fabulous! Hamburgers are perfect! The counter is small and doesn't look like much, but the lady behind the counter can cook great meals at lighting speed.
All the staff was nice and drinks came fast. Games were okay too.
