Decent hotel - would stay here again. Clean - only negative is that the smoke from casino and racing facility seem to follow you to the hotel.

Hotel was clean, staff was friendly. Hotel was on main road to go grab something quick to eat.

We stayed for the Indoor Pool and the location of the Hotel to the Racino. The room was clean and furnished well. The decor was youthfull and elegant. It made you feel very comfortable. The Racino was nice great food at the Gumbo Bar and the Cafe. The Gambling was fun as well. All in all a great day and night and a wonderful sleep.

We were excited at the prospect of staying at a new hotel/casino and the room LOOKED nice upon first entering. However, when we were ready to get in bed, we were horrified to pull back the comforter/sheets and find a bed full of varying lengths of body hair-ALL OVER the bed- long hairs, short hairs, etc. Obviously the sheets had not been changed on that bed. I called the front desk and informed them and they said they would notify housekeeping. So we slept in the other bed in the room after thoroughly examining it for hair. The bad thing was we are used to king sized beds and had planned on sleeping in the two separate beds for more space but could not due to the hair. Also on the negative side, the "breakfast buffet" was terrible- the hot food(eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits) was stone cold so after standing a line to get the cold "hot" food we then had to stand in line to microwave the food. A terrible experience overall and the front desk clerk did nothing to make up for the experience.
