Seminole Casino Hotel in Immokalee, Florida

We won! We won! just a bit of gambling to say to ourselves that we did take a chance with a few quarters. And, it bought back a local luncheon for us in Immokalee!

American Press Travel News–March 11th,- Seminole Casino and Hotel, Immokalee, FL.-Bob and Barb “On the Road Again” – Barb and I like a great sing-along and between the Coasters and the Platters, we had one, actually hundreds of attenders did too!  

Multiple Showtime on a large screen, a bed anyone can be comfortable in, updated to ultra modern fixtures and am AC that didn’t wake the dead!
The Platters show had many dancing in the isles! Oldies but immensely nostalgic goodies on full display!
Ah,, the pool! It was warm enough for us to enjoy! Clean and clear with a head and shoulder waterfall!!!!
No time for use in an overnight for us! Too busy dancing to the Platters. But, this exercise room was all there just before a swim!

We were in the lands of the Seminole Tribe of Florida: They are the “Unconquered Warriors, having never given in, or up to the American Government. They never entered to signing a treaty-the only tribe in America who did not! This is the tribe that paved the way for Native American gaming in in the country more than 25-years agoToday the Seminole Casinos, hotels and other enterprises employ 7,000 employees, and purchase more than $130.3 million in goods and services. Their new hotel in Immokalee, FL, where we stayed this past Saturday night was as modern and comfortable as any we have ever stayed in. The bed, bathroom and room amenities right down to the delightfully double bed lights, were first rate. We loved this hotel! We didn’t have a chance to dine, as the wait for restaurant on this Saturday night during prime winter time and the fact that the Coasters and the Platters were also on the menu, had this place “jumping.” For info: go: 1800-218-0007

The shower was the warm rain, the size was campable, the water handle was easy enough and safe enough for even a monkey to use without a hitch!

The casino is easily accessible from anywhere in Florida!!

Garlic chicken wings! Barb and I had a finger-licking good time with these well done wings!
More chicken, this time a bit spicy with peanuts, great noodles and a delicious sauce.

Barb and I enjoyed a nice and tasty dinner in this pub. We ordered the garlic chicken wings, lots of them. They were amongst the best we have ever ordered. The wings came with their home-made bleu cheese, carrots and their special house sauce. Very crispy, and not greasy. After looking over the menu for their main course, we decided on their fish n’ chips. The fish was coated in EBC Two Brother”s Pale Ale beet battet and Japanese bread crumbs, then deep fried. The dish came with crispy fries and Coleslaw.  We had Pad Thai noodle and chicken dish. It had light spice with al dente’ noodles. The noodles were covered with broiled chicken strips. It was the special of the night. The locals commented that they have a terrific burger.  They have dining on their patio. Since they are known for having over a selection of 20 local and hard to find craft beers. We sampled a few. That was a treat.

Page House Bed & Breakfast A Monument to Anyones Great Lodging Experiences

img_6201AmericanPressTravelNews.com Nov. 7th,Dublin, GA.–“Bob and Barb on the Road Again” and “Stopping to Smell the Roses”, and visit for awhile!–We stopped for a couple of nights to enjoy a real quality B&B and we were not even slightly disappointed staying at the really magnificent Page House. We first met Mono working the leaves off the driveway, just after pulling into a true early American Estate sized home from a different era and century with giant pillars and the look of what the real White House in D.C. must have looked like before the many gates and fences, additions and subtractions. This was a true Antebellum Southern home only remodeled to modernize the needs of casual tourists in all modern ways possible, but yet totally in keeping with the themes and decor of a quieter, more pastel time in American History. WE LOVED IT! We have learned that the owners make or break a B & B. Mono and JoAnn were fabulous, caring hosts and mighty fine chefs as well. This place as they say in GA. is   “The Gem of the Emerald City.” www.pagehousebb.com  ph and fax: (478) 275-4551

Yes, there are great restaurants in Dublin. See additional posts for Company Supply Rotisserie Bistro and Deano’s Italian Grille Brick Oven favorites!!!!
