Went for an overnight stay, great service at check in. Relaxing walk along the water and when we were finished at the casino it was nice to be in the pool and hot tub after ten when it was adults only. The meal at supper was well worth it and the service all round was good.

We had a wonderful time at the "Bay". We arrived early on a Friday in October, after a wonderful drive up US Highway 53. We were hoping to see more tree color changing, but it was a little late in the season. Check in was easy and very friendly service. Our room was clean and orderly with a balcony and... More

The property was easy to find, though it was not easy to find handicapped parking. I think that the elderly casino customers use the handicapped parking in front of the hotel lobby, so I had to drop my mother off and then find parking a bit of a walk away, but the weather was fine, so I didn't mind a...

We went here for the casino, but the resort property looked beautiful. There would be a number of great things available to resort guests and or owners. As indicated we went to gamble.

High quality rooms with comfortable ambiance. Beds are comfy. Book your room in the new wing and enjoy the views from your balcony. The stay and play rates are great! If you go right after Labor Day nothing is crowded so that's a bonus. Eat at the golf club restaurant for an amazing supper and cocktails.
