Diamond Jack's - Bossier City
Ranked #28 of 35 Hotels in Bossier City
Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is like my 4th time staying here. The first time was great. I was in a suite with a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. The room was spacious although the bath area was smaller than I anticipated. There is no frig in the room (available upon request) nor any free wifi. The other two times the stay was alright.

This 4th time...OMG!!! Where do I begin? Starting with the initial reservation. We did a three way call because we wanted to make sure they got our reservations right as we wanted adjoining rooms (meaning you can walk thru from room to room). She said no problem. Good this trip is gonna be good or so we thought.

Upon checking in we were told one room was not ready yet. We decided to all go to the one room and wait. We got upstairs housekeeping was cleaning our adjoining room. Great. When they finished cleaning we could just go down and pick up the key. We go down to the desk, she gives us the room key. I looked at the key like I don't think this is the right room key because the room numbers decreased as we walked down the hallway. Needless to say, the key was not for the adjoining room but the room next to ours. We called back down to the desk and were told the adjoining room was reserved to someone else.

Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse, we found the toilet was not working. We called maintenance and he came right up. We asked why had the previous renter or housekeeping not informed them of this problem, housekeeping had cleaned the room right? He replaced a part only to find that wasn't the problem. He left and came back about 45 mins later with another tank. That did resolve the problem. It was just a calamity of events. The room mix up may have been due to there being a Mardi Gras party being held at the hotel that night.

The hotel is okay. A major upgrade is needed at the hotel. It's not one of the better places to stay that offer the casino as entertainment. The televisions def need replacing/upgrading.
We did enjoy the buffet as well as the cafe across from the buffet.

Property is in desperate need of repair and general maintenance. Room was incredibly unclean. I understand things have age but this doesn't mean you should neglect brushing the dust off. Service is always great and employees friendly. I wish it was enough to overlook the rest. Place has potential.

We haven't stayed in one of their rooms in a long time, but we visit this area several times a year and try to visit all the Casinos while we are here. The room was nice the last time we were here and the food in the restaurants was good as well. We really like their Mexican restaurant here and worth a trip for that. The Casino machines are extremely tight and this place is dead. It's been bought by the Oklahoma Chickasaw Nation company who owns the 2nd largest Casino in the World “Winstar World Casino” on the South Boarder of Oklahoma and Texas off IH35. They have a huge reputation for coming in and changing the slots to where they are so tight you get zero play for your money. It will be very interesting to find out if they do it here as well. It probably won’t work here because of so much competition and the new Margaretville coming soon. They have a captured audience in Oklahoma, so they really stick it to them. The Winstar slots aren’t as tight because they have competition with the Choctaw Casino not far away; but in the Oklahoma City area they are the worst machines around to play because of little to no competition. We will see what they end up doing to Diamond Jacks?

Room Tip: The slots are very tight, so you might want to try other Casinos in the area.

I stayed at this property last Summer and had a good experience so I decided to give them another try. What a mistake! I am not sure what has happened, but it was a completely different experience. I was back in Shreveport for a few days in December 2012 and spent the first night there. That was enough. The staff acted like they did not care if I was there. The buffet and room were OK, but not worth dealing with the poor attitude from the staff. We moved to another property and were treated MUCH better. I will not stay here again until they make a major change in attitude. Hopefully the management will take a close look at their operation and do what needs to be done to improve it.

Hotel lobby and public areas are nice, new and clean. Unfortunately that stops as soon as you open, or should I say try to open your room door! The key to our room worked without a problem, but you had to put your shoulder into the door to get it open. Once inside you had to slam the door to get it shut. There were too many disappointments inside the room to list, suffice to say it's old, worn out, broken or dirty. The place hasn't been remodeled since it was 'The Isle of Capri'!
If all you want to do is get to the casino and gamble, and don't care where or what you sleep in, you'll be happy,,,,
