"Vaunie West"
This casino sits on beautifully manicured lawns and rolling hills. The drive is breathtaking. But then you arrive. Upon walking in I could tell their air filtration system was insufficient because all I could smell was smoke. Because of this, I thought I would try the non-smoking section. What a joke! It's small, cramped, and where old slots go to die! The best word to describe my visit - boring. They do have a nice area where you can rest in a comfy chair and enjoy a beverage FREE of charge! The buffet is okay, nothing special, and I'm not sure about the other restaurant(s). The valet is a nice service, though car retrieval could be made faster with an automated kiosk. If I wasn't already used to gorgeous, well appointed casinos like Mohegan Sun in CT where you can have loads of fun in a variety of ways, then I might not be so critical of this facility. It's really not so bad, just not so great either.
