I stayed for 2 nights at Isle Casino this past week, we had some work to be done at the Ingall shipyard in Pascagoula and we opted to stay in Biloxi because of better hotels. This is the first time for me in Biloxi and this hotel was recommended by a coworker.
My first impression of the hotel was really good, it's the first hotel on the left as you entered Biloxi from the bridge coming from east, the facade of the hotel looks brand new without a lot wear and tear from being right on the beach. We parked at the parking garage which is pretty convenient, parking is ample and there is a walk way on the second level that connects the garage to the hotel. My room was on the 10th floor, the hotel is facing east/west so I don't think there is a room where you get a full view of the gulf, mine was facing west so I can see the water on the left side and the town of Biloxi on the right. The room I had was very nice, the bath room was very clean, the TV in the room was a let down though, last time I had a room with an old/small CRT TV was back in '07 and there was one in my room, and it was inside one of those old style entertainment center that's made for that specific sized TV that's hard to adjust the viewing angle. The desk was right next to the TV so I can't really be at the desk and watch the TV because the angle. The bed was a bit old, there is a pillow top matress and after one night of sleep the pillow top part of the matress kinda "moved" around under the sheets, I had to take the sheets off and readjust else it's really uncomfortable. The first night there my coworker and I tried the buffet down at the lobby and I hate to say that it was a big disappointment. The buffet cost about $17 and if you add a lobster it's another $5, for being a first timer at the hotel I opted for the lobster to have the full experience and I regretted it right after. The buffet was a LOT smaller than I thought, the food wasn't really well prepared and the quality just isn't there. The dirty rice was pretty salty, roasted beef is dry even with gravy over, there are snow crab legs on the bar but they are small (and I mean SMALL, to a point I wonder if they were even legal to be kept by the fishermen). The lobster I had was extremely small too, I've seen shrimps bigger than that (I'm not exaggerating), it wasn't very well cooked, the claws almost have no taste they feel like just chewing on rubber. I've been to Vegas numerous times and there isn't a comparison. I know Biloxi isn't Vegas and the buffet is cheaper, but cheaper shouldn't come from a loss of quality. I didn't gamble a lot, as stated I was on a business trip so we worked long days and usually went to bed early, so I won't be commenting on the casino part of the hotel at all. Lastly I can't really comment on the price either as we were on a special rate that's a lot cheaper than what I've expected.
Overall I wasn't too impressed with the hotel, but then again it was for a business trip and only for 2 nights so it didn't really matter a whole lot to me, but honestly though if I was in Biloxie on a personal/pleasure trip I probably would be opt for another hotel instead.
Get a room facing east if you don't want the hot afternoon sun during the summer.
