Quick stay for a concert

We stayed overnight after traveling for a concert at the arena/convention center next door. Very convenient having it so close! Front desk woman asked if it was our first time to the area, and we said it was. She said she had a perfect room for us, and gave us a nice corner room that was super spacious, with a large bathroom. Very nice! Casino just behind the hotel was a nice play to grab a bite to eat, a quick drink, and hit a few slots.

Met my expectations and then some:) The breakfast bar I would rate as a 5star as well. Great coffee too! And of course walking distance to Horseshoe Casino:)

Nice place for the value

We were met at the front desk by a very pleasant young man. Gave us directions to several different eating places close by. Room was clean and up to my expectations!! We walked over to one of the Casinos, which we liked. Nice breakfast options. We would definitely stay there again.

Great value great stay

We chose this hotel because it had a hot breakfast and a more reasonable price than some other comparable hotels. We weren't disappointed. The only drawback was that we had a little bit of difficulty finding the place but it wasn't that big of a deal. It's right next to Cabelas, Famous Dave's BBQ, and a casino. The pool is a little small but overall we had a great time. They even have a small book lending library which our daughter loved.

failed to deliver

Stayed for almost a week and never had internet in my room as they advertise. Staff was reluctant to help, only offered the tech support # after several days of complaining. Tech support tried, but couldn't fix the problem. They offered to switch our room after about 4 days, but we decided it wasn't worth the inconvenience. Will not stay there again even though I have stayed there several times in the past. There are many other hotels near the Convention Center.
