Spent a few hours in the casino. Very clean and the staff was welcoming and helpful. Its not always easy to find $5 blackjack but these folks had several tables. Breakfast in the café was excellent. Large portions and reasonably priced.

Great stop on our way up the northern coast. Not much here if you don't gamble, but they do offer some great perks to first time guests. The hotel was very clean and friendly, we will stay here again.

Stopped by the hotel because it was on the way north. First of all we had to park at the far end of the building in the freezing rain.

This is one of my favorite Indian casinos. It's got lots of new machines and also older ones for those who like old school. It's cute and clean and the machines pay better then other casinos
