My husband and I travel from Atlanta whenever we can to visit the Gulf coast and always want to stay at the Island View. We are treated very well and great comps. I find it to be a very lucky casino and much better than AC casinos, which we only lived 60 miles from in past years.
So happy we found the Island View and always looking forward to next visit. We love their variety of slots, buffet, room, and friendly staff. Hats off to the Island View. GA. is missing out
on all the casino revenue, as the garage is full of cars from there giving their $$ to MS.

Room Tip: Like to stay on a higher floor less noise and no smoking is great. Better view far from elevators...

At first, From the outside it looked nice but once we went to the room, it smelled! Then the beds looked undone and the mattress looked as if the bed was sitting on boxprings! The head board was bigger than the mattress and the pillows looked 20 years old (used and dirty ). The sheets and the blankets looked old and dirty. We called front desk and couldn't change us to another room but they could send someone to clean the room. We waited for 3 hours and finally the lady showed up, did a walk thru and I guess she thought the room was fine! This place and a cheap motel are in the same category.

Room Tip: Do not go to this hotel! It is not worth a penny!

1st run in was with a foul mouth woman security guard and then we encountered the outdated & wasted space in the hotel room. The bathroom tile was horrible and the carpet made us feel like we where walking outside

My husband, mother and mother-n-law, myself and my sister and brother-n-law go as often as possible. Never have we been disappointed. The incentives are fabulous, the people great and the rooms are always clean. The staff go out of their way to help us when we need help or have questions. We live in Lake Charles, La and have several casinos and we have frequented Harrahs in new New Orleans and by far we choose the Island View!

We went there on a recent trip to Biloxi. Rudy, the casino host was absolutely fabulous. He doubled our comps from a competitor and we stayed several hours longer than we expected. The Casino is HUGE, compared to others we have been to. If in the area, we will definitely return.

Stayed: April 2013, traveled with friends

We love staying at the view. The staff is great. The rooms are nice and clean. Having a fridge in our room is a bonus. The restaurants have delicious food. We have been staying here since they opened. On our way there now.

We were travelling with another couple and had booked two rooms. At check-in was told the reservation had been put in for the following night and the hotel was booked. They were able to find us a room with 2 Queen beds. We made the best of it because we love the casino. The rooms we stayed in had not been remodeled. The beds were lumpy and the bedspreads were picked. Same decor since the hotel opened in the 90's. The hotel staff was lovely and brought us extra towels so that we could get dressed. Lovely pool, but too small for the size of the property. On a scale of 1 to 10, the casino is a 9. The hotel is a 3. We stayed there on Saturday, April 27, 2013.
