10/10 Exceptional

Cool place to stay with a couple of quirks.
Cool place to stay with a couple of quirks. Room is large with comfortable beds, fridge, fireplace, jetted tub, double sinks, and a large shower. The quirks are that you have to check into the casino next door, there's no staff at the hotel (although maid service is provided), there's no ice machine that I could find, and there is no door on the little room that the toilet is in. I would stay there again.

Nice hotel, but NO DOOR to the bathroom.
Yiu have to go into the casino to check in and our phone didn't work. Also, no door or curtain to separate the bathroom. Bizarre.. On a positive note - the bed was super comfortable

4/10 Fair

Bathroom has no door, tub needs a warning
The bathroom has a privacy curtain but no door! Quirky little hotel. Check in is next door at the casino. Two stars because some really easy improvements needed. First, put a door in the bathroom. Second, add a sign in the room explaining the chromathetapy tub has a clean cycle that will automatically count down after the tub was last wet. The jets spontaneously came on after we were already in bed, and scared both of us! Luckily, the internet gave the answer to the haunted tub. Third, some weatherstripping around the room door could help. Whenever someone enters the main door the pressure change in the hallways causes the room door to hit against the frame. For the good: check in next door at the casino was very easy, and manager was personable.

The room itself was reasonably spacious and comfortable. Large bathroom, deep tub and separate shower. Registration via the Casino was a little inconvenient.

Attractive room in a comfortable setting.
The hotel and room were both attractive and properly priced. The bed was comfortable. Large and nicely appointed bathroom. Everything was going great until the security system malfunctioned and began beeping at 2:16 am. Security had it fixed within 15 minutes but it totally interrupted my sleep.

What a gem of a hotel, at an affordable price.
The rooms are fantastic and quiet. Check in is through the casino next door, so the only staff you see in the adjacent Border House are cleaners during the day, which was just fine for me. Just a lovely place.
