Simple. Follow the smoking ordinance and everything is fine. But, if you choose to gamble with smoking even the most aromatic substances, you can find a fine of 250.00 on your credit card. They denied my attempt to dispute. Would have been alright if I had won enough to cover the extra!

So I stayed at the casino for one night and a tweaker stole someones credit card and I stopped him from leaving the casinos gas station, the security then told me I was wrong. I was just being a concerned citizen. The security guard said if I did not leave he would take care of me. He said he would...

Nice, clean room... it would be better if there was a microwave or something since I paid this much. Lots of tweakers but you can't really get away from that.. very basic room. Definitely needs to be something more... other than that, the room was clean

Nice hotel, very helpful staff. Restaurants were very good and the cafe was well priced. Great place to get away from the city and enjoy some relaxing time. Casino is decent for its size and the players club perks are nice.

Staying at the hotel and so far the food has proven to be of poor quality, the rooms although nicely decorated have paper thin walls and the staff is less than courteous. It is sad because there is so much potential for this establishment, but they have too many issues.

Stayed here on business, second floor. Very roomy king size bedroom. Bed was comfy. Room was clean. However, I wish they would put a comfortable desk chair in the room. It gets uncomfortable sitting in the upright dining chairs at the desk for a stretch of time. Coffee maker in room was a little disgusting (dirty) but other than that,...

This hotel exceeded our expectations. This area didn't give you many good choices for hotels but this one would stand out in any area. Room was very large with comfortable seating, beautifully decorated. Queen size beds with quality mattress and sound proof walls guaranteed a good night's rest. The staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent food, at reasonable prices and...

Room rate was Ok, the 15% discount being a 'players club' member helped.....While the wife was out shopping and visiting i stayed and watched college football in the lounge downstairs. A little off the beaten path, but you avoid the worst of the fog and travelers that frequent McKinleyville and Arcata.
