Stayed at the Odawa hotel and visited the casino twice during the weekend. Casino is nicely laid out with a variety of older and newer games, including Clue, Beetlejuice, Willie Wonka (original) and Batman. Payouts were typical of an isolated casino - isolated! Workers very friendly - local band playing Friday and Saturday. Ate at buffet Saturday night which is... More

The casino is very small. It does have a couple of restaurants and I believe 2 small gift shops. Sage restaurant was amazing though! We ate there 3 times and they NEVER disappointed! Loved it!!!

This is my favorite casino in Michigan. It has , by far, the best buffet of any casino I have been in. If I lived in Petosky and didn't gamble, I would still go to Odawa just for the buffet. We try to get up there several times a year.

This place is absolutely horrendous. This was not only the worst experience I've had at a casino, but the worst experience I've ever had at any place of business in my life. For starters, the place is small, stinky, and tacky. The staff we immediately met were rude and disinterested. Regardless, we stuck around for a few hours since we... More

This is your typical Indian Casino ... stopped here twice during our stay in Petoskey. The first night it was very skinky with smoke odors. The second night was a little better. Not a casino that pays out ... took our money very fast. Don't think we'll go back.

The table games are fun, the electronic slots are fun enough. Overall the space is nice (and the parking is great). There is so much smoke, though, its hard to really enjoy your time.

Having visited Odawa Casino in the past for no more than 2 -3 hours per visit and having had a good time, we decided to extend our visit. Not going to do that again. The vast majority of games are old, boring slots that don't pay. Or at least didn't pay out for the combined 10 hours we were there.... More
