I did not have high expectations so I wasn't disappointed. The hotel entrance was great. I was pleased to see a definite Louisiana feel in the lobby area. Gators, turtles, and fish in the enclosed pond area gave a real "authentic" feel for those who think the state is only swamp. :) The layout was well-done with plenty of signage... More

Loved everything... anything you could want to do is under one roof. Gambling, food, shopping, movie, music, drinks, it's all there. Can't wait to go back!

Paragon has a little bit of everything.....good food, nice people, relaxed atmosphere, Music, casino, golfing, and a spa. What else could you ask for? The rooms are spacious and not costly. The staff is wonderful! You ask and they bend over backwards to accommodate you. Take a trip!

Stayed mid July for one night here and can only rate Paragon as poor. We arrived mid afternoon and used the valet to park the car which was fine. I am a heavy smoker so I am normally not sensitive to smoke smell. But when I opened the door to enter the casino I was about knocked over by the... More

I've stayed here several times in recent years and it seems to be deteriorating each time. Room rates during the week reasonable but restaurants are high and good very mediocre and service bad in the diner. Thought I booked nonsmoking room online but when I checked in they supposedly put me in nonsmoking. But when the strong smoke smell and... More

Overall a good experience. Not luxurious by any means but comfortable bed and room. Convention food was okay. Did not sample the numerous food outlets however. Casino was quite smokey and very busy. Valet parking was slow. Gift shop was expensive. Outdoor pool and whirlpool were empty most of the time, but the indoor pool was over run with kids... More

Plenty of slots for everyone, food is good throughout. I liked the daiquiri machines bar. Hotel was comfortable, beds are nice, the room was showing a little wear but overall a great stay.

We came in on Friday afternoon and stayed at the RV park. Grounds are well kept and very clean. Shuttle runs often and picked us up and dropped us back off right at our spot. We enjoyed the Casino. Nice selection of penny and nickel slots, which are my favorite. It was smokey but not as bad as some other... More

I think it should have a smoking section or better ventilation. Various machines and tables. Something for everyone.
