I have watched this casino grow from their beginnings and enjoy gambling here. I wish they would stop changing their club point system. We used to get more offers that would bring us in more often. I would recommend a visit to Little River Casino.

We were really looking forward to our 2 day visit. Turned into a disaster. Took forever to get the room, slots were awful, drinks were extremely expensive, not enough wait staff and people were stopping each other complaining about the tight slots. I even wrote to the casino when we returned home and got absolutely no response. Plus, the atmosphere...

I stayed at the Little River Casino Resort for a business meeting taking place in the conference room there. Upon stepping foot in the door, I was hit by the smell of smoke. Michigan has a public area smoking ban, but casino's are exempt, so it was quite a shock. Luckily, my room did not smell of smoke. The place...

I've always wanted to like this place but it has gone down the last few years. It has had two recent upgrades. Both were improvements but the last one is very effective. This is a "high end" buffet that has struggled with the food, not so much in quality but in selections offered. It also seemed to matter greatly when...

Very nice place to stay. We stayed in the King Suite, this room is huge and very affordable during off times. The room was clean and comfortable but is a clip away from the Casino floor. Not really a far walk unless walking is difficult for you. Gaming is ok and the casino floor has recently been remodeled and has...

We enjoyed our Suite, fireplace was inviting after a nice swim in the pool. The casino floor was enjoyable with a lot of the games that are in other casino's. The service was great on the floor and the breakfast buffet was ok.

This was our first visit here, we're not big gamblers but when I saw the Ellen Show Game I was hooked! The people that worked there were very nice and helpful. There is a non smokers game room but is a lot smaller than the regular and didn't see too much there. We're not smokers so for non smokers this...

I enjoyed my one night visit to the casino. I'd say its a bit on the smaller side but it had an adequate amount of table games and slots available. The casino area is laid out nice where everything is in the center and restrooms, food/bars are on the outside. They seemed to do a good job of controlling the...

I have been going to the Little River at least once a year for the past several years. I have always had great service and encountered friendly employees. This last trip, however, really irked me.
