“House wins.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011 via mobile

I have never been to a casino that was more depressing. Saw no winning. No glimmer of hope. Isn't it Hope that makes us go in and give it a try?
Save your money. By the small crowd, on a supposed " sold out" night, they must be having trouble pauong their bills. Their was nothing offered to win. Their overhead must be more important.

The resort is far better and prettier than Blue Chip! After a while front desk will know you by name - a plus! New 275 Room Tower, Hard Rock Cafe, spa, atrium, pool, and 600 Seat theatre Coming Soon for Four Winds - New Buffalo! Fourwinds comps better than bluechip. Both Fourwinds and Blue Chip have nice hotels but the difference is looking out side your room window - you feel like your at a resort at Fourwinds vs looking at trash dumpsters at Bluechip! The only gripe at Fourwinds is the 32" TV's - they are small for 2011 - 2012 hotel standards otherwise worth the drive!

We have stayed at Four Winds on many occasions. In fact, we've had every room type they offer -- from the standard room right up to the Celebrity Suite.

This last stay, we had a deluxe suite ... and as usual it was fantastic. The suite consists of two separate rooms. A living room with a wet bar, microwave, fridge, bar height table and chairs, a living room area with a wrap around couch, huge flat screen TV, easy chair and sofa tables.

The bedroom had a queen size bed, arm chair, ample dresser and closet space, another large flat screen TV.

The bath is just amazing. With separate sink areas for him and her, a huge Jacuzzi garden tub in the middle of the room and separate rooms for the shower and toilet, this is a dream bathroom.

Although we requested a non-smoking room, we received a smoking room. The smell of smoke was not all that bad and by the next morning it was pretty much gone.

We have always been treated extremely well and Four Winds and will continue to patronize this resort.

Room Tip: Sometimes a later check-in will get you an upgrade

The facilities are absolutely lovely. Everyone was extremely accommodating - and it was our first visit to this casino. The property fills up fast, because it it so much a resort as well as a casino - unusual for this area.

Room Tip: book early!

This is a large place. Decorated in an Indian motif. (It is Indian Owned) There was a very nice lady who offered to walk me over to the players club when I asked her where to get a players card. Nice sampling of table games. This casino seemed to pay out decently.
I did not stay in hotel or eat there, I spent only 3 hours there.

Absolutely the worst casino resort I have ever been to. I play table games like Baccarat and Blackjack. They allow people to sit around smoking and hanging out and they are not ever playing. The most annoying experience I have ever had at a casino. I gave them chance after chance and they are just horrible in customer service. The dealers and pit bosses are very rude and obnoxious. I am warning everyone to not bother with this place unless they like people smoking, hanging out and not ever playing. And if you complain there is no recourse cuz it's an iindian owned casino. So the state will do nothing for you. Indian casinos can screw with you and you can't do a damn thing about it. My recommendation is to stick with american owned casinos.

Room Tip: my tip is to stay away from Four Winds Casino.

Had a free mini-suite offer and spent a Monday night at Four Winds. Room was top-notch. Two flat screens, huge bathroom and walk-in shower. Did not have much luck at slots.
Ate at buffet, we both thought food was excellent. Casino was not too smoky, but this was during the week when it is not full of smokers. Non-smoking area is in tiny corner off the main floor.
