An okay stay, could be better

Too much noise at night, but it is a casino. Cheap room, but still expected a little better service. I have stayed here a few times and it is seeming to be getting worse.

Room quality

Wasn't expecting much considering price but the room could have at least been cleaned. Beds unmade, unwanted rollaway bed in room, toilet full of urine and cigarette butts, and reeked of smoke. Was supposed to be a non-smoking room. The staff was generally friendly but I didn't sign up to be apologized to all weekend.

I'd stay for the price on weekends, nothing more.

Hotel prices go up on weekends, so that's why I tried this place out. You can hear everything nearby at night, and your sleep will likely be disrupted. The carpet was old and stained as well. Not a terrible place by any means.

Family outing

We stayed at this hotel with my 15 month old daughter. The hotel staff was courteous and the room was comfortable. The breakfast was very good. My only complaint would be, I had difficulty finding parking. Large trailers took up multiple parking spot and checking in after midnight, it was a challenge finding a parking spot.

No sleep, no shower

I arrived in town, checked into the hotel and went to the room...linens were great, clean, room was nice, staff was nice. I went and had a great meal at Mel's Diner (highly recommended). I came back to my room, exhausted, wanting to get some sleep, unfortunately, the extremely loud music in the hotel and drunk guests (some of which were fighting) was overheard in my room continuously throughout the entire night and into the early morning, making it impossible to get any rest. The shower wasn't operable and the faucet drizzled.
