Negative Reviews

Deal with the smells

The hotel has a non-smoking policy. However, due to the number of guests at the casino, where smoking is allowed, the smell of cigarettes somehow enters the property. Thus, you are advised to close the windows and ask the cleaners to put up air fresheners.

Delays can be encountered at times

Checking in of the hotel is not that smooth sometimes. You have to wait for 20-30 minutes for your rooms to be cleaned. Some members at the front desk staff are not that cheerful. However, they continue to work hard and apologize for their wrong attitude.

Minor issues with the beds

The beds are not too soft and not too hard. However, some beds make sounds each time you turn. Thus, you are advised to use earplugs before you sleep. Better yet, you can request to be transferred to another room.
