Found this place by accident about a year ago. Have stayed there twice now on the way to Vegas from Oklahoma. Rooms are $66 per night usually (if you ask for that rate.) Casino was, I thought, really cool in that the carpeted walkways in the casino are actually "highways" that have the little white lines and cement color, just like the real Route 66. There are also "street signs" directing you to the various parts of the casino. Casino is colorful and not tooooo smokey. They have a live band in the bar some nights. Some nights are Mexican themed it seems.
The rooms were nice and new, and clean. Price was right. Lots of Spanish speakers there, which was not surprising considering it's near Albuquerque. Dealers were nice, table limits were reasonable. Coffee shop type restaurant (breakfast) was pretty good. Buffet was just average I thought, though they did have lots of choices. I didn't eat at the fancy place, though it looked nice.
The place has a small gym, and I believe an indoor pool, which I didn't use. There is a convenience store and gas station just across the parking lot from the main hotel/casino. The gas station area also has a smaller casino with about 50 or 60 slot machines in it. Free soft drinks while you play. The location of this place, about 30 miles west of Albuquerque, makes it a nice midway stop between Oklahoma City and Las Vegas on Interstate 40.
Well, the cat is becoming enthralled with the typing and watching the mouse on the screen, so guess I'm done for now. Hope this review was helpful!
