Golden Nugget recently completely a major remodeling and additions to the former Isle of Capri Casino, so we booked a couple of nights in February to check out the hotel. Having stayed at the former Isle of Capri, our expectation level was "lipstick on a pig".
Golden Nugget gutted the pig and the rebuild was impressive. We stayed in an upper level view room and simply could not believe the results of the rebuild. Though not quite as large as a room at Beau Rivage, the quality was comparable and the TV is larger. The view of the Biloxi beachfront was spectacular and we were fortunate to have two postcard sunsets during our stay.
If a beach view is important to you, make sure that you get a room that is located in the North half of the hotel and faces the West. Parts of the South half have rooms that face a former casino which may obscure the beach view. The East facing rooms overlook the channel going to Back Bay and include a view of Deer Island and Point Cadet.
The new pool area looked great, but it was far too cold for bathing suits. The quaint Bubba Gumps eatery overlooks the pool area and likely packs during the summer months. Golden Nugget just about doubled the size of the casino and the new Michael Patrick’s sports bar and grill has a great view of the harbor and Deer Island.
The only negative was the quality of the drinks in the Casino, but they are free and you don't really notice after your second drink anyway.
