    We will be spending one night in Metropolis IL around the end of July and need any helpful information or advice. All suggestions are appreciated as we weren't sure we wanted to stop here for the night.

    The hotel is nice, maybe even very nice. Have stayed a few times.

    Until recently, the gambling was and old run down boat. They recently move ashore and took over their convention area with a new casino. Have not been there since the change. My 3 visits their have been disasters. By the way, you have to pay for drinks due to law.

    stayed one night there doing a midwest CET tour back in when they gave a bunch of points for hitting a bunch of different casinos....played 5 min, hit 4's with a kicker for $800, got yelled at by security for taking a pic, cashed out up $725, spent the night and left the next morning with my winnings!

    seemed like a total dump

    Yeah the casino was pretty crappy back then, but it was probably was one of the nicer casinos I had been to that still was actually a "boat". But as nostresshere mentioned, they have renovated the casino to be "barge-like". Haven't been back since the reno though, so I can't comment on the improvement. I, like you, was there last for the CET Race to Rewards in 2012. VP offerings there were generally terrible back then.
