“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Stayed there Friday - Sunday. The room was in need of a makeover. The lamps were broken and hard to turn on. The beds were pillow top and somewhat comfortable. The tub faucet was somewhat loose. The carpet seemed grungy so we wore our socks. This was a compt room as we were there for the "wheel spin". We have stayed at the Fitz for quite a few years and the rooms seemed alot nicer than this one. They seemed to have more penny machines than anyother ones which was fine as with the people were playing these the most and left the other ones open.The buffet was wonderful as the food was good and hot. The hotel staff and the casino staff were pleasent and friendly. We will go again as my husband likes the table games that they offer. (We were there on 4/26/13 - 4/28/13)

Room Tip: Try and get a room closer to the casino and they halls get longer and longer to walk especially when...

Most Casinos in the area have very discounted rates for Sun-Thurs travelers. The Fitz usually can be had for less than any of the others. Don't think that because they are cheaper, that you will be getting the bottom selection. The facilities are very nice and the staff is very friendly. Their pool/Hot tub area is 18+ only. This is a big selling point for couples wanting to get away and spend some time away from millions of kids in the swimming area. This was our second trip here and we had always wondered if they enforced this very well. When we arrived they were removing a couple and their small child. The pool area in hotels have become babysitting zones in most hotels and give little to be desired for adults who just want some relaxing time in the water. The rooms are a very good size and the beds are better than Harrah's. You are connected very closely to the casino and don't have to drive or walk 1/4 mile to the casino like you do a Harrah's. They include a free breakfast buffet with the room and the nightime buffet is very good. It may not have the biggest casino area, but it suits us very well.

Room Tip: I like to get a room close to the elevator just to make it faster to the gaming and food.

I went to this casino March 25-26 and I enjoyed every bit. The rooms are nice we arrived and was upgraded to a suite which was even better. The buffet is not so good I prefer the snack bar, which the philly steak is real good! Will be returning for a craps tourney..

Our room was not very clean. The lamp had water stains on it. The floor was dirty. The furniture looked very old and cheap. However, the staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was good the price was included in the price of our room, lots of things to choose from.

We took our children for a couple of days to do some adult gaming and shopping for the kids at the outlet mall for Spring clothes. Terrible for kids!!!! The indoor pool is only for ages 18+. Some of the other casinos have evening hours that are adult only, which is perfectly fine, but 24/7??? Also, no reduced fees at the buffet for children - $16 for everyone. My 8 year old certainly doesn't eat as much as adult. The staff at the front desk was extremely rude and acted like I was bothering them when I asked any questions. Won't be back. If you won't accommodate my children, I won't be staying either.

We stayed at this hotel recently and found it to be decent overall. It had its positive and could have been better points to it, like anything else. We stayed Sun - Thurs and received a standard, nonsmoking room for $39 a night plus free breakfast each day at the buffett. Our room was clean and the bathroom was clean. Although we stayed in a nonsmoking room, the smoke smell was present in the hallways. Check in was easy and the employees we came in contact with were all friendly and eager to help. The casino here is two levels and offers a wide variety of slots and table games. Drink service was a little slow but the servers were nice. The casino would benefit from an upgraded air filter system; the casino was very smokey. This hotel does have an indoor pool and hot tub that we took advantage of one day while we were there. Towels are provided but they are the small towels. Most of our meals were eaten in the hotel/casinos buffett. Southern comfort foods were served in abundance. More fruit and yogurt would've been nice. The dessert bar was only average. Other than the resturants in the hotels, there is really no place else in the area to eat. I did see a Subway at one of the gas stations. If you are looking for food variety be prepared to drive 15 to 20 miles to find other options. We drove into the Memphis area one day just to find a Taco Bell. We spent most of our time in the casino of the Fitz but we did venture out to some of the other casinos and had a good time at each of them.

Room Tip: We had a room that looked out over the Mississippi River.

The first room we checked into was one of the older ones. We always check the beds. The first one was fine, but the second bed had blood splatter on the mattress. We were upgraded to a better room. The hotel is nice and the casino is great. Like I always say, check everything before you bring your things to your room. Not sure if we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Upgraded rooms facing the river are great.
