    Got one of those King/full suites booked for February and I've never been there. Super Bowl weekend that place was very affordable so I booked it. What are the rooms like?

    Will not be staying there but will be visiting in a couple of weeks so I can give a bit of updated information for you on the place in general.

    Their rooms while clean are 2 star at best. The king suite has a chair and sofa. This last time i had a suite, but had a King bed in bedroom. Plus a double bed and couch in living room. A litte odd.

    Was on a 2 night comp not long ago.
    Almost wasn't able to check in as they don't accept cash or prepaid debit cards. A 5 star hotel accepts pre paid debit cards. So should they. Supposedly the rooms have got torn up a lot, and they couldn't bill them. As the deposit $35. Anyway it was a very busy weekend in Vegas. I had no idea of this policy. As last time i stayed they even accepted cash. The front desk manager made a one time exception.

    Had no luck in casino. Was down $3000 plus. It was like pulling teeth for a comp. $25 and one free buffet. She like oh the room has taken your comps, can't do anything else. I stressed to her u are at best a 2 star property. Your comps should be much more generous than the strip or even downtown. She wasn't hearing it. Then yelled goodbye, goodbye.

    Some of there offers have been decent, and quick to come in mail. As they give cash for bigger losses. Not close to 10 percent. But cash is something when most give free play. But after being treated so horribly by her no way.

    I stayed there years ago, just because. It was a solo trip, so I wasn't worried about anything really nice. The room was a bit threadbare, but clean. It had a living room with sofa and chair along with a dinette area. The bedroom was separate and small as was the bathroom. My room faced the Boulder Hiway, so it was about as secure as can be at night. If you didn't know, all the rooms are separate from the casino building. It was originally built as Sunrise Suites and sold before opening. The new owner added the casino. It's now owned by the Strat people. The day I checked in my buddy and I watched a football game in comfort. The casino is nondescript and small. VP paytables were bad then and probably worse now. Behind the main bar is a stage for live music, which was nice. Cafe was soso and I don't think I'd try the buffet. They used to have a "fine" dining unit called the Yukon Grille. Not sure if it's still there. Best part for me was walking out the door and in my car 5 seconds later! Not my first choice, but on a weekend like that I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    Good Luck!
