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.

A large group of family made our way over to the casino to eat and do some gambling. Smoking is allowed so keep that in mind. Cheap tables ($5-$10 for Blackjack). The buffet is a little pricey if you don't get a coupon from the front desk. Tons of food to choose from.

Nice casino - we go there and will continue to do so. But the buffet has gone way downhill, ate there last Saturday and will not ever eat there again. Period. It was free with our casino points and even then we felt bad about going. If we had paid 20.00PP we would have been livid. Go if all you... More

The casino wasn't packed. It had just the right amount of crowd when I was there. I couldn't smell cigarette smoke although I saw people smoking. The machines were fair and "teased" you enough to keep your interest.

While staying in Petosky for a few days my friends and I went to the casino on a budget. While the Casino is very clean with lots of slots I left without even winning enough to play for a little while, but that's just my luck.

It was a nice stop on a Monday afternoon. Quiet but not too bad. Clean and friendly place. Loved reading about the history from the prints on the wall. The gift shop was cute. We didn't win big, but didn't lose either.

The casino is the main attraction in Petoskey for nightlife. Actually, other than Walmart and Bdubs it's about the only thing open after 8pm. It's expensive, as expected but you can get deals if you book your hotel with a casino package. Lots of slot machines, a few tables and a high stakes room. Make sure you get their little... More

If you are looking for a great brunch, Odawa has a good one! Lots of choices, with a yummy dessert bar. And then you can try your luck in the casino.
