Flew up to attend the Lee Brice concert on Friday. Had arrangements through my Casino Host for transport from the airport, but the airline delayed my flight twice from Houston (thank you United). By the time I did arrive 3 hrs. late, no hotel transport was available, so I took a taxi. $20, so no big deal and I arrived in plenty of time for the concert. Only a few room issues. I was in room 1010, a premium King overlooking the entrance and fountain. There was no TV remote to be found, the sink was a s-l-o-w drainer and the mattress has seen it’s better days. Called front desk and 30 min. later 2 gentleman delivered another remote. I didn’t report the drain issue because to my way of thinking, isn’t this something housekeeping should be catching and communicating to maintenance? Anyway, it wasn’t so bad I couldn’t live with it for a couple nights. I discovered the bed issue after the first night’s sleep and waking up with a bit of a sore back. The Horseshoe uses nice pads on their beds which I typically find very comfortable, but in this case it wasn’t enough to compensate for the shortcomings of the mattress (could swear I heard a “sproing” sound under my hip when turning). I solved my problem by moving to the other, lesser used side of the bed the next night, which was an improvement. Again, didn’t report the bed issue but it was only because I just flat forgot it when checking out. Some pros for the room: A/C has a 3-speed fan and is nice and quiet, not like some places I have stayed that sounded like a jet turbine. The drapes really do keep the room dark for night owls like me. I recommend bringing a couple of clothespins to insure there is no light leakage. I really enjoyed the shower - plenty of hot water and a good spray. No luck in the casino Friday night after the concert (I am a slot player). Was able to sustain somewhat SaturDAY, just should have stayed in the room after supper, because that night I might as well have set my money on fire. I play all different denominations and types of machines and nothing was hitting. That’s everything from $.30 in a penny machine on the bottom deck to $9.00 a spin in the high limit area on the top deck - nuttin’, honey! Sooo....since I had no money left for Sunday, I checked out a day early and headed home. My wife and I might come back for Ron White in July and we’ll see how it goes. If nothing improves, it just might be our last “rodeo” at the Horseshoe. That would be a shame - we’ve been coming here for 15 years. They treat us very well and it’s a good facility with above average restaurants and a good lineup of entertainment. But the truth is we have much better luck at Naskila in Livingston, TX and Coushatta in Kinder, LA. That’s the bottom line for any casino, isn’t it?
