"Brandon Burton"
We stayed at the hotel which was VERY expensive compared to the competition in Michigan. The expectation was really nice accommodations for that high price. The pool area is indeed very nice. The room was nicely decorated, but no larger than your average room and no additional features. The TV system is so poorly designed it's almost unusable. The shower head is on a vertical sliding bar that in the highest position hits your navel. There was an annoying sound that kept us up most of the night. When we informed the staff while checking out of our concerns, we got a shrug and "a sorry about that". As for the casino, it's a typical Vegas style casino with a well done fire theme. We played for about 5 hours and we're never offered a drink, despite hitting the "order drink" button on every single machine we sat down at. Many of the machines are very old and need to be retired. There is a lack of low minimum machines, especially newer (and more fun) ones. In other words if you want to play the fancy animated ones plan on paying 50-60 cent credits. Would I go back? Maybe if the room was free or way cheaper. Would I recommend? Only if you can get the room for less than $150 a night. Soaring Eagle is a way better value.
