Very Good8.0
access ti Jacuzzi at night from hotel room.
was here to celebrate a birthday with my sister. Only problem we had was getting down to jacuzzi and back into hotel. Many of the door were locked and our keys didn't work to get inside, so we walked through casino.

Great hotel and staff, not a great casino
Staff was great. Gym was great. Pools are great. Room service food was best I ever had. But the casino has a lot to be desired. Bars are a joke and too small a room for gambling. But even with its flaws, I would stay here again. The staff makes up for the joke of a casino it is. I am also from near AC and work in Vegas so I am biased.

Thanks for the upgrade
I received a suite upgrade which was an amazing surprise and made my stay very comfortable. I wish I had a longer stay to get to enjoy all the amenities. The only thing that bothered me was the smoke in the casino, but that comes with staying at this type of property.
