    I received an offer from Station Casinos via mail for three COMP nights anytime June thru August. I booked three nights, June 21 thru 24. Plans kinda changed and we decided to show up two days early, I logged onto my Station acct and it showed a seperate offer for three days in June only, it was a seperate offer number, and only showed up online, there was not mailer.

    I booked this offer for two days, as I was checking out it said in red print, you can only use this for a maximum of three days, must have two days between visits. It did not mention anything about combining it with other offers. The website took the res. and gave me a confirmation #.

    Will I have a problem at check in? I am thinking about calling tomorrow and seeing if this is going to be a prob.

    If the computer let you book it, I suspect you'd be okay. However, I would tend to worry that the folks at reception wouldn't allow it; if it was me, I'd call ahead to confirm. Good luck!

    I always call ahead in situations like this. Some times they have to bump the conversation to the host on duty. When I made my reservations at MSS (which is next week) I had a three night comp on the BConnected web site but wanted to stay four. I just called the 1-800 number and asked for the fourth night to be comped and the reservation rep approved it without any problems.

    In the past I have called and received room reservations when the web site said they were sold out. Basically... I always call the 1-800 number when making reservations... the web sites are convenient, but humans are more flexible and can email confirmations too! Well at Boyd properties anyway?

    A few years ago we booked back-to-back offers on-line (in the same name) at the Cal. The fine print said it was verboten, but we tried anyway and it went through. A day or two later we had a message on the answer machine from the Cal saying that we needed to call them back about our reservation. The computer said "yes," but the human said "no," and we made changes. I'm not sure what would have happened if we just showed up without calling, but who needs the extra anxiety? Of course, your mileage may vary. Good luck!

    I phoned the Sunset Station, explained my situation to the clerk, he said I was fine as long as I used two seperate offers to book. I said I did, he was pretty non-chalant about the whole thing, like I was asking a dumb question of something. I guess I am okay now.
