“April trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

We stay here at least once or twice a year. It's our favorite hotel. We stayed the end of April and beginning of May and had a great time. We always like the Monday prime rib special at Carter Green. This year however, we did not get very good service or a very good meal. We did notice the Manager Ron was not there and we wondered if that had something to do with it. We also noticed that we were not the only table that sent our meal back. Since we've always had a great experience there, it must have been an off nite. All in all we had fun.

Stayed April 2014

I have been a member of Island View Casino for nearly two years. The casino has great deals which seem to be directed mostly for Out-of-Towners(OOT). OOTs receive free rooms, slotview play, etc. while locals receive only some of these.
The rooms are great, the Buffet is one of the best in the Gulfcoast, and Carter Green is fantastic. I believe the casino should show more gratitude to the locals.

Room Tip: There is no spa

This was our second visit........
My husband and I have had the best experience with the Island View. The rooms are always clean, fresh in every way. Non-smoking, was just that. We had a lovely views both stays. This past visit was overlooking the beautiful pristine pool. Beds are so comfortable, soft and firm pillows to choose from. Just a lovely room altogether.
We had someone from housekeeping (a supervisor, I believe) stop by to ask us if we were happy and satisfied, and if we had any suggestions on how to improve the room and our stay. How great was that? While at the slots I was welcomed and asked if I was enjoying my stay again, and if they could do anything else to ensure our good fun. Double Great!
Food was wonderful at the buffet.....if there is a problem, don't hesitate to speak with someone. The staff is friendly, thoughtful, charming, and eager to please.
If you can't tell, we had a blast. Looking forward to our next visit! Spend a few days and you will fall in love with the southern beauty and charm of the Island View Casino Resort!

Room Tip: Just be specific of your wants and needs....they are more than willing to be of service!

Island View Casino is a great place to visit. Located on Hwy 90 at the beach, a really great location. Island View offers guests the total package. Hotel, many dining options, gaming, pool and cabana and located just across the street from the beautiful sand beach. This casino resort is very well maintained and always ready with great service. It is a fun place for everyone. Casual, easy access, friendly and lots of good food and activity.
Great hotel rooms are very attractive and bliss beds are very comfortable.
Put this one on your travel schedule.

The buffet at the Island View Casino has great crab legs on their dinner buffet. They were not overcooked as is usually the case at most seafood buffets. Had a great time at the casino also and won a little bit to take home.

This is not my first review of Island View, but each time we stay here, I am so grateful. This casino is so laid back, comfortable, and fun. The rooms are spacious and clean with great beds. The employees are always courteous (except for the Buffett chefs, who are mostly rude & pompous). However, the food is delicious and the waitstaff are like family. We always have a wonderful few days here, & it is by far, our favorite casino on the gulf coast.

The hotel is very nice, with large comfortable rooms with refrigerator inside the dressing cabinet. Well appointed spacious bathrooms and a better than average a/c system.

The casino is large with a good variety of slots & poker machines.

Restaurants serve quality food, The only drawback is that there isn't a breakfast offered other than muffins and other pastries in the coffee shop or through room service.
