We spent 2 nights on our way south. Had a great time! Hotel staff were great! Ate in 2 of the restaurants and always came away satisfied. Lots and lots of slots. Some pay well some don't. Isn't that what gambling is suppose to be?

Casino is first rate but at $429. per night this Hotel is way out of the average person's budget. All of the uneven numbered rooms overface the roof of the casino. All you can see is tar paper and ventation stacks. We were in room 309 which you could almost walk out onto the roof. When you opened the Juliet balcony you had to strain your neck to see past the roof tops.

Room Tip: We were given room 309- room was great but we were right over the roof of the casino all you could s...

Hello, yes our hotel rates are comparative to our supply/demand. With only a small 250 boutique hotel and nearly 1,000,000 player's club members, the majority of our rooms are used primarily for our gamers. We sell a very small number of rooms. We're sorry for any inconvenience, however, right across the street and around us we do have partner hotels which are very nice and less in price if that's what you're looking for. Please feel free to call our concierge any time for this information. 813-627-7628.

What a big casino with wall to wall slot machines and very bad payback.The gaming commission is called seminole gaming comission if that tells you anything.There are no other casinos besides indian casinos that could get away with that. In biloxi its called mississippi gaming commission and in vegas its las vegas gaming commission at least you have somewhat of a chance to win.This is by no means a real casino go to real casino with entertainment and way better odds.75 to 90% of wins are for negative money its very frustrating and no fun.

Room Tip: What view of the interstate!!!

We're a little confused by this post. We adhere to the National Indian Gaming Commission which is a federal, outside entity that regulates our gaming as all other Native American casinos. All casinos are a place to enjoy for entertainment purposes. We hope you get lucky soon! Thanks for your comments.

Major face lift, looks beautiful. The security is the pits, no metal detectors? The thieves are all over the place. My cell phone was lifted and almost got mugged. I filled out a police report and the cop said that its a regular event around here do to the location. I even was able to talk to the thief and he tried to loor me out to the parking lot.

The safety and security of our guests is of utmost importance to us. Not only do we have security and surveillance on property, we also have the Seminole Police Department here too. We're very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that happened while you were here, and perhaps the cop was misinformed. We can assure you that this is not a regular occurence but we do ask all of our guests to remain a reasonable amount of vigilance as they would at any other public location with thousands of people present. That being said, sometimes things do happen and we're glad you're ok and safe and our security team was there to assist you. We hope you really understand that this is not something that happens here all the time like you were told. Thank you for your comments.

My husband and I stayed at the casino for one night this January. We have been there before and LOVE all the displays they have on exhibit. It's like going back in a time machine for us. Our room was GREAT - super clean and wonderful beds!!!!!! True, we wish the casino would limit smoking and hopefully in the near future they will. Food was very good no matter where we ate.

for those of you who keep complaining about smoke here! Listen up. there are places in the casino that are NO SMOKING. it would serve better if you went to those spots. do not go into the smoking sections and COMPLAINabout smoke. that is stupidity on your part. more importantly why not complain about how tight this place is. NOW THATS A REAL PROBLEM!
