This hotel charges $75.00 if you come with a casino card! Good bang for your buck! Hotel is new and rooms are very nice! Had prime rib for supper (the special) and it was delicious for a moderate cost!

It was OK, nothing special. I have been to a few other forts and some were better. There was some history and exhibits to view in here but not a lot. Was in and out in about 30 minutes. You pay $4 to enter the...More
