Pros: AJ Resturant fantastic, totally great job by Trent!
Cons: Total mix up when checking in we stated we were staying two days and verified at checkin this was correct. The second day they called at 2:30 and stated we were only there for one day only and had to leave. They printed out the online confirmation and that only stated one day. How is it at checkin everything was verified for two days which is what I confirmed on 7/15/16 personally by direct call to Prairie Meadows?

Pros: The buffet was very good. Check-in was fast. Parking was good. However, our room did not get cleaned on Sunday until we called at 5:00 to complain. Strange, because the cleaner knocked on our door at 9:00 and we told her we would be gone in 30 minutes and would be gone all day.
Cons: We were at the races on Sunday. It was very crowded and we were looking for a place to get out of the sun. We went to the staging area where the camels, zebras, and ostriches were. We were told that the building next to it (which would have been a nice cool shelter) was closed because of a function on MONDAY! Unbelievable!! That showed very little regard for guests. Who made that horrible decision?
