Arrived at 11.30 am and I got my room at 4 pm. After very long fly of 10 hours, I had to wait 5 hours in the lobby. Just 2 restaurants and 1 coffee. Business center does not have tables. Many local people playing in the casino.

We are not gamblers, so the idea of staying in a casino was less than exciting for me. We were here for a business meeting, and I must say, most of the place is quite impressive. The hotel extrance is separated from the casino entrance, though the stench of cigarette smoke from the open casino is hard to avoid; it...

We got a thing in the mail for 2 free nights. Loved the stay. Used my players club card to hopefully get asked again. Really had no complaints. Enjoyed the food, bars, casino, etc. Room was as nice as any I've stayed in Las Vegas. Staff was very helpful. Would give it 5 stars for sure.

The scenery in the area is breathe taking. The resort offers spacious rooms with excellent service. The resort offers several places to eat. It is your choice and the food is delicious in all locations. Across the street you can view a herd of buffalos and shop for native art from the shop.
