    How long does it take to get you car once you give them the ticket? I assume it's located by the front entrance? Any thing else i should know will help.

    Thanks in advanced

    It can take awhile. They tend to be disorganized and then have to give priority to Diamonds and 7Stars. It's usually not that bad in the day.

    All depends how busy they are. I've waited between 5 and 25 minutes. The valet pick up is right by the valet drop off under the porte-cochère.

    5-10 minutes depending on how busy they are. If you are in a big hurry hand them a $5 bill when you turn in your ticket

    I have found in the past it works best to tell them how long you will be in the casino. Not necessary, If you are checking into the hotel, you are not getting parked real close. If you are visiting for a few hours, I give them a tip at drop off and tell them to keep it close.

    This is key. While most people (hopefully everyone) tips when they pick up the car very few tip when they drop it off and you should get better service if you do. A few months ago I went to Mohegan in CT, I gave the guy $10 when I pulled up. He looked surprised (again because not a lot of people tip when they get there) and said "I am going to put your car in a very good spot so you will get out fast". When I checked out the next day I had to wait maybe 3 minutes for my car, and I heard people saying they had been waiting 20 minutes or so.

    I would think there is a wide range, based on demand.

    When we did rental cars, we usually avoid it because I hated waiting. We eventually stopped renting and found it much easier.
