I love this place. Not to crowded. Staff is great. So helpful. I would highly recommend this Casino for beginners as well. Wont feel so overwhelmed when learning how to play Table Games. One side is Smoke Free and the Other side is Smoking. And Shots of Liquor are very reasonably priced.

My brother got married this past weekend, and had his reception at Catfish Bend. Pretty much everything was top notch. The reception hall was spacious, and the food there was great. Everything from the entree to the dessert. Though I didn't get why they made us pay $1 for pop every time we went up. The rooms were clean, very... More

We just returned from a wedding weekend in Burlington. The bridal party stayed at the Catfish Bend Inn and Spa and the reception was held there as well. The rooms are VERY large with a beautiful walk in shower. The beds are comfortable and clean. The breakfast included was great, with an omelet and waffle bar. We couldn't have asked... More

The room was large with a dark interior (probably since connected to a casino for late sleep-ins) Comfortable chairs, bed was great, different bathroom, had frosted glass wall separating it from the sleeping area so if one person wanted to take early shower it illuminated the bed and might wake other person in room. The dresser covered in mirrors was... More

We are frequent visitors to Catfish Bend Casino for a variety of reasons, primarily because it's the only one in close proximity. They also have a decent buffet and spa which my wife and mother enjoy. We generally have a good time, with a couple of caveats. First, don't go there with the idea of winning. We've been at the...

Everything was top notch, had a beautiful large, quiet room, bed was maybe a little softer than we like but we slept good. Wonderful big bathroom with large counter space. They gave us complimentary breakfast buffet tickets each day. We stayed for three nights and would stay again.

The layout of the place is confusing, and finding the hotel reception desk was a hunt. The casino reeked of smoke, and the décor of the public facilities (walls, carpeting, baseboards, etc.) has seen better days. The room was fine, but the hall noise due to the overexcited kids running to game rooms, the water park and other entertainment rooms... More

I have stayed in this resort multiple times for Business. The rooms are surprisingly well appointed, very modern and spacious. The rooms in the spa come outfitted with a microwave and small refrigerator good for multinight stays. Very good value for the money. I have found the staff to pleasant and they try to accommodate you. The buffet is mediocre... More

Room was nice even though we requested 2 doubles and got one king. Not a deal breaker. I agree with other reviewer about the bathroom. I like having a shower door to keep the heat in. And very weird that someone can see my silhouette in the bedroom. Creepy... Just saying. Casino was okay, a lot of penny slots.
