I really like Paragon in Marksville. It is clean and secure. The people are nice and helpful. There is no loud, rumbustious people to put up with. It is comfortable and they have good food and a huge vairity of machines to play.

Not convenient for out of staters unless you have free time. Several 2 lane roads with no lights at night. So travel in daylight is my recommendation. The Good: All staff at casino, hotel and restaurants were friendly and courteous. They seemed pleased to have you as a customer. Casino is land based so casino floor is large with several... More

Very clean, Very friendly and helpful staff. Food is good in the buffet, as well as the other eateries on the grounds. Buffet a little pricey in the evening at $20.00+ per person. Website is a little misleading about the shops and stores. We got the impression there was actuall shopping, and what they had was nice, but, little more... More

Don't play the slots but go for the food. The buffet has 4 to 5 different cuisine's and something for every one from Grandpa to great grandchild.

Went for the day just to relax and play machines and tables. Was ok but very disappointed in drink service -very slow and not at all friendly. We were there on a Friday and wasn't very crowded at all. As a matter of fact kind of dead for a casino just a few miles from a decent sized town. The... More

Ate there in October 2013 on a Friday night - crab night. Crab was soft and very hard to peel, seemed old and not very hot. other items were not appealing... More

We had a Blast! All the people who work in the casino seem happy in their work. They are fun and engaging in the pit areas. The drink staff seems overworked, they were always at a mad run with a completely full drink tray but couldn't keep up even on a weekday. Hire more waitresses! We did not go to... More

We play slots to have fun, and we most certainly did have fun. Employees were very friendly and helpful. Shuttle is available 24/7 and is very prompt. We did... More
