What a makeover. Casino and rooms looked better than ever. I loved the way they opened up the gaming floor; nice open spaces between slot machines and table games not crowded together anymore. Good selection of new and old slot machine games. Has a nice coconut smell throughout the casino that covers up the old tired smoke smell that the casino used to have. The bar by the elevators is great for watching football and the bartenders were excellent; plus good video poker machines at the bar. The players club employees were very friendly and did an excellent job. The new players club benefits are excellent also, with the player being able get money back that same day of a loss. The downside was that the casino doesn't have a buffet anymore and I thought the new restaurants were overpriced and the food wasn't that great. Had trouble sometimes finding a drink girl playing slots and video poker some nights. The biggest downfall is that the hotel charges you over $11 per night for a resort fee, I guess they want the hotel guests to pay for the remodeling super quick.
We saw Folies and it was the only good thing at this place. The whole casino smells bad and was dirty. Self parked in the back and had to walk thru the hotel. It stunk and was very dirty. Glad we didn't stay there! Slots were tight.
Bought our show tickets at a half price place and took them to the box office for exchange. (This is the way half price tix works) The box office lady was rude. Our seats were in the center but far back and I had trouble seeing the show. A man in front of us kept putting his arms up. I don't know why. The attendants were of no help and walked up and down the rows all during the show. They were very distracting. The show itself was wonderful. Dancers are very talented.
Other than to see Folies, I suggest skipping this casino and hotel.
