This casino is your typical small town casino. Few machines, few tables, few smiling employees and even fewer winners! Stay away from the buffet, barely edible and always the hot food is cold and the cold food is warm...pricey too. Oh and the comps here amount to nothing. If you have time and money to burn for a few hours... More

The Odawa Casino, as far as casinos go, is quite small and not really worth your time. If you want to kill some time and waste some money, by all means, go in. However everything about this casino is overrated. The casino gaming floor is small. Few tables are open. Dealers are not personable at all. Blackjack rules are non-standard.... More

I probably have more fun here than at many casinos. Employees are friendly, I always see jackpots being paid out. I have had my share. I just wish that all casinos would restrict smoking to the bar area. Smokers can smoke, and players can play.

Based on reviews, I was concerned about how smoky the casino might be. We were at the casino about noon on Sunday. There was plenty of parking within easy walking distance to the front entrance. It wasn't crowded inside the casino so there were plenty of options for slot machines. There is a no-smoking area toward the back of the... More

Great selection, easy transportation by shuttle, suggested by the hotel we stayed at. Super 8. Delish!

This casino has so many unhappy, unfriendly employees it's ridiculous. Maybe they're unhappy cause it's so smokey in there. I much prefer to go to the soo. The Canadians are friendly, and it's smoke free too.

Our gambling guests always want to go here.they win, I never do. Keep having to move away from the smokers; the buffet is usually quite good but overpriced unless you get comped

Helpful staff, fun games and lots of action! I check this out anytime we are in Petoskey. Free shuttles from the Odawa hole property too!

We have gone to the Odawa many times over the years. Every time it seems that service levels shrink, the slots get tighter, and there are less of them. We went again this week and were surprised that more poker slots seemed to have been removed. Plus, the craps table was not open, and there was only one blackjack table... More
