Nothing special of a casino, looks like it needs a renovation. Sportsbook on third floor. Quiet at times. Only positive is that casino was within walking distance of hotel where I was staying.

Rooms are ancient with some noise maker called air conditioner. Casino was okay. Sports book has been remodeled since William Hill took it over. Restaurants are inexpensive but food was terrible.
