great hotel

Pros: Great hotel and good prices
Cons: Nothing, everything is good
Location: There is great Arnold Palmer golf course on ground. Also, in the old city of Bay St. Louis there are great places to eat and drink. Laid-back town.
It is the second time we stayed in this hotel and it is very nice, clean and the casino is very good. Great buffet and awesome price.

Just an overnite stop on our way home.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of now.
Location: A little hard to find at night after a long day on the road. Could use a little more signage. Not aware of anything in the area, passing through.
OMG!! I wish I could have figured out how to get that bed out and taken it home with me. Since we were in no hurry to get home, we slept in. It was heaven. The room was well appointed, but no fridge. Nice bathroom, everything was spotless. The price was reasonable for one night. We did visit the casino, but it was the END of our trip, so not too much stayed there. Wouldn't mind staying more than one night, but I'm not a gambler, so I'd have to check out the surrounding area to see if there are any points of interest. We stayed there a long time ago when the hotel was across the parking lot and a shuttle bus was provided for the patrons. What a magnificent improvement! Check-in staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The snack bar staff was good also. Would not hesitate to stop again on our next trip to Texas. And would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Everything was nice. The only problem that I saw was they need to flip their mattress. The foot of the mattress was much more firmer than the top of the mattress.

Great Place

Location: Great Beaches and Antique stores
This was a great hotel to stay at. Very good Valet and Room Service. I even lost my ID there and they found it and returned to me! The only down side was having to pay full price for the buffet for my 4 yo son (25$)

If you like it smokey

Pros: Buffet was ok
Cons: Everything.
Non smoking rooms were not available, although I had reserved one online. We could drink the water due to some sort of contamination. We had 2 8oz bottles of water to last us the entire time. I requested more at least 3 times, but no one ever brought them to us. I am not one to complain, but this place was a real disappointment. Everything smells like smoke and it was impossible to get a drink on the casino floor.

Didn't win but WOW!

This was a very nice hotel to stay. Comfort and luxury. Not over the top luxury but very very nice. You MUST have dinner at the buffet! Best food I'd had all month while traveling. We hoped for breakfast buffet but there was no service on Friday morning. Nothing negative to say regarding this stay.

Terrible Service

We had planned a last minute getaway to unwind from the stress of our jobs. Heard about the hotel through my inlaws. Check in was great. The girl was so sweet and had even given us an upgraded room at the same low cost. But it all went down from there. It was late so we decided to go to the buffet to grab a quick bite to eat. Food was unbeleavable. So GOOD. But when the waitress came up to our table she glanced past my half empty drink across the table to my husbands tea who was no where near empty & asked if he needed something to drink. Not once was I asked if I wanted a refill. It's not like she had several tables either. We were one of four. At 3 am the next morning we went downstairs to play at the tables. There were only a handful of people playing. During a three hour stretch we only saw the cocktail waitress twice. During her second pass through the dealer asked her to pick up one of the dirty glasses at which time the waitress turned glared & rolled her eyes & walked away without grabbing the glass. I will admit she came back minutes later to grab the glass. I left the casino & headed straight to a restaurant to get me something to drink. I would be more than willing to pay extra to at least get something to drink.
