Usually do not see more than one or two actually in the casino itself though so I would still recommend the casino for gambling, but I would not go near a room there. It reminded me of the old downtown Vegas circa 70's. The bar next door was a quasi pickup brothel making for some interesting viewing between hands.
I have had many a fun night in there. In the past they were kinda questionable in their policies. I remember telling my friend to be careful cause they dosed their drinks and he said "that's why I come here" Well I wound up in a ditch after one of my nights there and there is no way I had that many rum and cokes. But like I said they seemed to have changed their ways. Casino is small and there are only a few tables and a bunch of machines. The texas hold'em table upstairs is fun too but they have a steady stream of really good players so watch yourself.
