This is a nicely appointed casino. We got coupons at our hotel so we went over after supper. I don't care for the smell of smoke, but the place is clean. We just play Penny slots, so it's cheap entertainment. For a change, we both won a few bucks, so that made the evening even more enjoyable. Parking was close... More

As far as the casino itself, it was alright. I've been to many casinos throughout different states and this ranks towards the bottom. The gambling portion was good with a good variety of machines for where it is. Unfortunately for us, we didn't search the buffet online for reviews. DON'T GO TO THE BUFFET. I don't even know where to... More

Clean and comfortable casino that was not overpowering with noise or smoke. Number of places to eat with a variety of food selections and costs. The bar areas had a fairly decent selection of craft beers to choose from and the cost was very reasonable. Don't expect a Vegas casino but for being up north it was a pleasant surprise... More

This is not Vegas, it's up north Michigan, but this place has tables and slots and is rarely busy! The dealers here are very friendly for the most part. We did not eat or stay here, just played at the casino. The Gambling age here is 19!

Beware the food at the buffet here is beyond words...the bbq ribs must have come from an old dog, the clam's were not done, they even managed to mess up the french fries we visit Petoskey every year and will never ever return to this place to be honest I can't believe I didn't get sick

We were in town for a wedding and stayed at the Odawa Hotel. They gave us vouchers for the casino and we took advantage of them. 10 slots, 5 blackjack, and 10 food dollars were pumped back into the casino and a little bit more. There is plenty in this place Buffet Restaurant Sit Down Restaurant Snack Bar Bar Night... More

We did a day trip to Petosky and, on a whim, decided to pull in to the casino. It was our 19-year-old daughter's first gambling experience. We were happy that is was small and well laid out and had a large selection of slot machines. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon so it wasn't busy. I also like that... More

Odawa Casino is one of the nicer casinos. You don't walk out smelling like a cigarette. The staff is friendly and greets you with a smile. I would definitely return.
