We enjoyed the Executive suite with its balcony, but were supposed to get a mountain view room and they put us on the wrong side for that. Also ran out of hot water in the shower after less than five minutes.

Loved all the places to sit with family and friends, both inside and out. Really enjoyed eating at the Coyote Cafe. Loved the live music and enjoyed the casino. Only complaint is that we checked in on a Tuesday and our room was not cleaned until FRIDAY.
