Great place to stay (but not to charge my EV!)
We loved the place. Hot buffet breakfast was an unexpected surprise. I laughed uproariously at the “Electric Vehicle” parking spot for charging, which has not even a 110v wall outlet but what looks like a 220v electric dryer hookup. Nothing for my conventional EV or a damned Tesla either. Give ‘em credit for trying, or for the humour. Really nice place with friendly staff and nature right out back by the stream. Lovely stay.

A great hidden gem!!
We loved it here! Staff was very inviting and friendly, pool was clean, pet friendly rooms was great, and it had really nice restaurants, patios, decks overlooking the river, etc. The food was surprisingly good (we enjoyed everything we ordered, but we didn't get a chance to try the Shogun hibachi place). The free shuttle to the casino was nice too. The only area they need to improve is hiring experienced bartenders. The bartenders were extremely slow and it took 15-20 minutes to get a draft beer on a few occasions. It seemed it may have been one of the girl's first day on the job (we had to explain how to make a sex on the beach) and they left her all by herself behind the bar when it was very busy. Other than the long delays between being able to order food and drinks everything was amazing. We will definetly be returning!
