I’m very sensitive to cigarette smoke and really appreciate any casino that attempts to provide me with protected areas. There is a glass room to the right of the front entrance that is non-smoking (with an ATM right by its glass door); and, for the most part, the lobby area of the hotel and two of the restaurants had good...

The suite had a living room, dining room area with a large table, bar area with a microwave and mini fridge, 2 balcony's facing the front of the hotel, 2 bathrooms, one was a smaller bathroom close to the entryway and the huge master bathroom...

Buffet closed Both days we were there for "getting ready for inspection", "frozen water pipes" (even the employee telling us this one couldn't keep a straight face. Obviously they are having financial issues and they are letting it show in overall experience a guest can expect. They WANT your money...just don't want you.

I'm in the casino business so I'm always looking at different casinos across the country. Paragon seems to have fallen in the category of "just good enough." The building is nice, they seem to have quite a few eateries. However, the staff on the day i was there just wasn't on point. They weren't angry or mean, just lifeless. The... More

They have new management that has cut almost everything, the staff has a bad attitude and the gambling, well let's just say when you walk in just throw it on the floor and walk out!! I'VE been going sense it opened and it's never been so BAD as it is now! They need to bring grand back and fire the... More

Although we only spent three hours here (too tired from travel to stay longer) we enjoyed the time. The place is very large and clean. Like most casinos has a strong smoke odor but I expect that. There is a small non-smoking area but it still has some smoke odor. We were there on Sat. afternoon and the room was... More

My husband and I visited this casino on New Years Eve (for the day). It was the first time I had been back in 20 years (right after they opened). At that time I said that I wouldn't return, however, I received some comps in the mail several weeks later, 2 free nights, some play money on my card, as... More

This place has everything. I came on a trip for a group of 50 and they gave us $10 food vouchers and $25 free play. I don't gamble so I gave my free play away. For a small fee of course! :) They have an awesome movie theater with concessions to go along with it. Free wifi everywhere...that's always a... More

The off-the-beaten-path casino was a fun place to gamble. The hotel has very nice rooms and it is affordable. In addition to the hotel and casino, there are several dining opportunities inside the casino.
