Best Hotel/Casino in Gulfport area

Hi, we're planning a trip for the early spring for some golf and gambling. We're wondering if we could get some good feedback on the best casino and hotel or casino/hotel in the area. This is a special trip for us so we're not as concerned with price as we are with quality. Thanks in advance

"The best" is of course subjective. There are 11 casinos all with hotels except for Boomtown. I would however, recommend The Beau Rivage. It has a large casino, beautiful public areas, nice pool, really good buffet and the Fallen Oaks golf course.

While your here, you may want to check out the other 11 casinos and around 15 golf courses.

Have a great time!

Thank you Claudia, that is one we were considering. We were also considering the Hard Rock but we are a little older so we thought that may be too much. We are definitly planning on checking out as many casinos and golf courses as we can.

Thank you. We were looking at that place also but didn't see nearby casinos. Walking distance. Are we wrong?

No Island View is by itself. The only walking distant casinos are Planet Hollywood to Beau Rivage. However they have a shuttle that runs back and forth to I believe all the casinos. We really enjoy IP. Will be there this weekend for a nite. Good Luck and enjoy your trip!

We stayed at the Grand, last year, got a good price, but didn't know there was not a poker room. BF sad...so put it nicely....but we did go look at the Beau. We are both retired, and I am not in bad shape, but he has breathing problems, and while the Beau was truly beautiful, I would not stay there unless you don't mind walking a long way for everything. I love the more intimate atmosphere of the smaller casino's. You can learn your way around in short order, and enjoy your stay. Just my opinion. Trying the Isle next.
