Nice accommodations, spotless, quiet. Restaurants on site, gambling.

Everything was really nice the only thing i didnt like was the pool was only four and a half feet deep and the hot tub was small

This hotel needs a little TLC. Not "run down" but definitely needs a face lift. Food choices were not great.

Great staff..especially in the restaraunts..both Bella and the Steakhouse are excellent food and service. Room was big roomy and clean.

We had a room overlooking the Missouri river and the beautiful river boat. The room service and the food was the best. I will stay here again when I have business in Omaha.

My husband and I stopped here on our way to CO. I booked it as we were about 50 miles away from the hotel. The staff was friendly, our double queen room was very nice, clean and no smell of smoke as many reported in reviews. We ate at restaurants there, good food and went to casino and had fun. The hotel looked lovely decorated for the holidays. Definitely would stay there again.

Ok, I thought I would get more bang for my buck with the suite package.

We stayed in a suite and at the end of the day looked forward to a relaxing shower after a long day of traveling. The shower was probably the worst we have ever had in such a nice room. The shower head sprayed in every direction and the water temp could not be regulated to a warm temperature. It was either hot or cold; no in between!! Our room was 315.

Comfortable and nice location very pleasant and relaxing

4th Floor jaquizzi suite. Whole hotel reeks of smoke. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable, and the shower was filthy. I would not pay to stay here ever again.

Hotel was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bath tub in king suite was very nice. Only down fall was the tub/jets were very loud when room above us used it. However, we would stay again for sure!

Casino was smoky and crowded. The Buffet, the food was cold.

The hotel was a great stop for our trip to Colorado. The hotel is very nice and the restaurant choices were great. We will continue to stop there on our regular trips west.

Convenient to Eppley (Omaha) airport and interstates. Very nice, comfortable rooms. Love the casino.
