Fair4.0
Very disappointed with my stay. Entire main level/casino very smoky. Was put in a room by the elevator and could hear music until early morning from nightclub. Room did not get cleaned the first day. I joined the rewards program and gambled over my three day stay (lost over $2000) and when I called to get comps before checkout I was told I had $5 in comps. Between crappy rewards program, drinks that cost $9-10 even at the tables while gambling and smoky environment I would not give this resort a good rating. Only plus was beautiful views from Sky Restaurant where the wait staff was extremely pleasant and piano player was awesome.
