We stayed 2 nights here on both ends of a weekend on our way to and from Iowa for wedding. The hotel seemed deserted, as we parked as close to the front door as possible. The front desk was very attentive, and friendly. The room was very clean and well appointed, both nights. In the casino, it seemed all the dealers and patrons knew each other, and lots of friendly conversation. They didn't seem that busy. The only negative we had, were the lack of late night food options in the casino. Maybe we just couldn't find them.
