    The elevators were not working properly. A lot if screaming next door to us and above us. Parking was outrageous for staying there. The hotel has nothing in it but rooms.

    Location! Located between our two favorite c Casinos

    They took $100 more from us and then soon leaving, told us we must pay a 15.99 charge. We are still waiting to get the remainder of our $100 refunded!
