Checking out a day early.
The casino next door attracted really sketchy characters who smoked outside the casino and very near the hotel. I did not feel safe outside after dark because of the vagrants near the hotel and because of what appeared to be drug deals going down in the shared parking lot of the casino-hotel. Even though the hotel is completely non-smoking, employees smoked on the back patio of the hotel and the smoke came inside the breakfast room and the lobby.
New, clean room, two beds. Kids loved the pool, Lenny (our black lab) loved the elevator. Great value for the miney
