Very nice one night stay on our trip to Chicago. The room is nice, TV is cool. Casino garage has lot of cars, but the surrounding street is too quite, almost like a deserted place. Once you find your way to the hotel it seems all right. Staff super nice!

Not Majestic
Positives:Hotel staff was generally friendlyNegatives:Check in was unnecessarily longLobby temperature was warm, despite oscillating fans to cool (really?)Musty smell throughout all hallwaysParking lot not marked at all - we ran into many parking lot dead ends after driving over 6 tall grass growing through the pavementCasino access required a shuttle (again, really?)Hotel room was missing carpet in some spots!

3/5 Okay

Its not da Bellagio
Needed a hotel quick for a family emergency in Chicago and I wasnt paying Chicago prices. Hotel looked abandoned when we pulled up. Its dated and smells musty. Didnt need an alarm clock due to the frieght train rolling by at 6am. It served its function as a place to sleep and not costing 200 a night.

All Gary a Dump
Was on the way back to WI from NY. Thought a casino hotel on the lake by I90 would be OK even in Gary, ID. Wrong! Casino & casino restaurants were Ok but hotel was a dump. Walls in bathroom were literally falling apart. I guess the entire city of Gary is the dumpiest US city.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The staff was extremely nice, and willing to help in any way.The disappointment: My first night at the hotel, I caught an eye infection which made my weekend miserable. The bathroom had mold along the bathtub. Im glad I had my cleaning products. I was able to clean the bathroom and spray lysol everywhere. There was mold everywhere in the bathroom area, the walls in the sleeping area had lots of water marks and dust on the night stand. I was not pleased with the amount of money we paid vs. the quality of the room. Not good.
