Where to Stay

My husband and I just back from Tunica. Because of comments that had been posted on this site, we stayed at the Horseshoe. We are so glad we read these comments. Before reading comments on this site, we had booked our accomodations at the Fitzgerald, then at the Resorts. Trust me, the Horseshoe is far greater than both. From the initial experience with the Bellboy, to the Hotel registery staff, to the security staff, the service was wonderful. Our room was kept clean, and with extra towels. The buffet at the Horseshoe was manamus, featuring all kinds of food, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The slots offered a lot of variety. I hit a jackpot and so did my husband! There is also Texas Holdem at the Horseshoe, but my husband indicated that the pit boss was a little slack. I highly recommend the Hoseshoe for all your Casino needs. The Goldstrike and the Sheraton are right next to the Horseshoe. I had luck at the Goldstrike also on the penny slots, in particular at the five cent wheel of furtune and the top dollar machines. The Goldstrike, Horseshoe and Sheraton are all at one place, you can walk to either of the three. Also the buffet at the Goldstrike is not as good as the Horsehoes. Now for the Fitzgeralds, we went there, not as many slots, and the slots are tight. It is about 7 miles from the Horseshoe. I did not like it there. Sam's town is better than the Fitzgeralds, we played a few slots there, but came away with no measurable hits, just a few dollars. Although we did not eat there, the buffet must be as good as the Horsehoes. Also Sam's town is about 4 miles from the Fitz. I hope I am helping someone like your comments helped us.

We will be going to Tunica on Sunday for a 3 night stay. We've stayed at Sam's Town (our first trip), Bally's, Fitzgerald's, Gold Strike and the Grand. Our hotel of choice, now, is the Grand. Our last few visits have been there. We've stayed in the Terrace and Veranda and found both to be well kept, comfortable and cheery. We would return to Sam's Town or Gold Strike if the Grand was not available. We do not care to return to Bally's or Fitzgerald's. We are not hotel snobs, by any means, but found our accommodations at these two hotels to be below par. It may have just been that we got the worst of it at the time and some rooms are better, but wouldn't want to risk it, again. I remember Fitzgerald's room being old and worn and smelly. The casino was dark and smokey. Bally's room was minimum everything. It didn't even have a closet. Clothes were hung in the open in the room. I find the Grand has the largest selection of slots (can't speak for table games, since we don't play them), is bright and airy. I enjoy Sam's Town Casino, also. We will probably try all of them on this trip, but will spend most of our time at the Grand.

The Sheraton by far has the nicest rooms. All have jacuzzi tubs next to the bed and huge marble bathrooms. The have designated smoking floors, so if you get non-smoking the whole floor is non-smoking which is very nice. Also all rooms have small refrigerators.

We go to Tunica about twice a year---The Horseshoe is our favorite also---Samstown next--then Grand---I don't know how Resorts Tunica (use to be Harrahs) stays open, that place never has many people in it, and I can understand why, the slots are soooooo tight... we have our best luck at the horseshoe, I hit $1,300. on a .50 cent machine in april. We love the buffet at the horseshoe, always a big variety to choose from----the staff are all very friendly and the rooms are outstanding--big, comfy, and clean.We can't wait for the Biloxi Beau Rivage to open thats our very favorite place to play---I know I will cry when I see Beach Blvd......they say there is nothing left anymore----it was beautiful before the hurricane---but Im sure it will all come to life again----coming from South Carolina we went through hurricane Hugo, so we know first hand what a storm like that can do, it just take time to build again.
