“Fun at Mardi Gras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have stayed here three times and have to say, each time was great. Rooms are a good size, nice sheets and duvet. Bathroom towels and amenities are wonderful. Love the Sprout Out products....so clean and fresh. Room is bright and sunny, ask for a mountain view. We always see deer...even a beautiful white one ! Mini frig is stocked, so you can't put anything in it. Main resturant on the casino floor is very good. Interesting mix of food, servers do a good job. Fun to sit at the bar and watch people in the casino...drinks are very inexpensive. We had two margaritas, Patron and grand Marnier ( we ask for them ) only 6.00 each. Yummy ! I have seen some comments about thin walls, but we only heard people in the halls occasionally. Staff is very friendly and always speak to you and want to know if they can help you. Another plus is your away from the downtown blight and there is a great Mexican resturant at the entrance of the hotel property ...La Roca. Great food and drinks.

Room Tip: We alway ask for the top floor and a nice view.

We purchased the Stay & Play package that gave us a meal credit and free play with our room stay. The room was very nice and clean. Unfortunately for us, there were some rude people across the hall who decided to slam their door every time they went in and out during the night. They have a nice, little casino that did get busy in the evening. We were very impressed with the breakfast buffet. There was a chef there making omelets and there was a variety of other breakfast items to pick from.

I have stayed In hundreds of hotels. This one far exceeded my expectations in every way: Cleanliness, friendliness, meals, pool, you name it. At $109 a night it is a steal. My kids really enjoyed the hot tub, the indoor/outdoor swimming pool, And the breakfast buffet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This is a real gem in a not too interesting part of our country.

Im an avid casino visitor and Mardi Gras casino is awesome. The dog track is the main event. After the dog races you can gamble all night then go to a top notch room for a resonable price. I live closer to Harrahs in cherokee NC but drive to mardi gras because of the atmosphere.

I booked through Expedia.com and got a two queen room for $120 total. I thought that was a great price for the room. The room was large and had nice features. The bedding was nice, the tv was plenty big, the bathrooms had an ionic hair dryer. The staff were beyond friendly. Every request or question was met with a well-mannered response. My kids enjoyed the saline pool and hot tub.

The complimentary breakfast with made-to-order eggs provided sufficient sustenance. While the hotel was nearly booked, the seating areas and lines were never annoyingly long.

I just returned home from a two night stay at the Mardi Gras Casino and resort and it was first class as far as cleanliness and service. The rooms are huge with great ammentities such as the Kourig Coffee makers. Nice touch. The lounge is very nice with good drink specials. The breakfast included in the room rate is restaurant quality. The room rate is a steal for the quality of this property, I am sure they know you will leave some money in the casino or dog track. Top value and quality will keeps me coming back and recommending this property to others who travel in the area.

My husband and I just came home from a wonderful stay at the Mardi Gras Casino and resort and it was first class as far as cleanliness and service. The beds sleep great the lounge is wonderful and you could not get a better breakfast included in your stay. I take my hat off to you. Now the machines in the casino are quite tight they could stand to be loosened up !! But we had a great stay . Thank you all !!!
