Positives: It was affordable for the location but it was very much in the meh category of good. It had most of what it claimed to but I kept feeling like little things were missing.
Negatives: For the most part everything was good but they no longer have the shuttle to the casino, it was taken out 3 YEARS ago. Far long enough to have it out of the booking by now. There were also little things that I missed but also didn't effect my experience much, such as no shelves in the bathroom for clothes or towels as well as no hooks or rods. The roll of toilet paper was almost out when we checked in but were left with a new roll for us to put in ourselves. Only one bar of soap is provided for amenities. Thankfully we brought our own supplies. Also 1 sign by a public trash can really just irked me, it stated when full for the guest to take out the trash to the dumpster. I definitely feel like this shouldn't be a request of "guest".

Knaak Family with Young Children August 18, 2023
Positives: Nothing i checked out after 3 hours due to unsafe living conditions. The smoke detector wasn't working and someone who stayed there before me put a plastic bag over it. On top of that the pillows had blood stains on them. The staff wasn't helpful finding clean pillows and rude when we asked for new ones. Terrible experience. We had our one year old baby in the room and it smelled very strong of bleach and musty. After 2 hours we checked out. We also didn't get a refund. We had to call corporate to complain for pillows.
