“Choctaw, you better be a smoker!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

First time last weekend at the Choctaw Casino. We are regulars in Vegas but had never been to it. Went to see Alan Jackson in concert. Rooms very nice, but very pricey for $300 per night. Food everywhere was good, people very friendly. We did not like the venu for Jackson, the seating is floor seating with folding chairs; which, if I had known, would NEVER have gotten tickets for. Short show for the money but Alan was awesome, of course! Even though country fans are much nicer and did not stand up the entire time it was still too hard to see. Even though most everything was favorable why will I never be back?? I am a non smoker and it was the smokiest, stinkiest casino I have ever been in. Could hardly wait to get home to wash all of our clothes. I can still smell the stink. So...all you smokers can enjoy the overpriced rooms all you want, we will stay home. BTW, my husband's iphone was stolen off of him while he gambled and a fellow employee he works with had his laptop stolen out of his room while he was gambling last time. Hotel told him it was his problem since he "left valuables in the room". See a pattern there?

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker, DO NOT go here!

If you want a quick get away just head on up to choctaw. Its a beautiful hotel, lots of food choices, and plenty of gaming choices. Don't forget the pool and spa! We enjoyed the lunch buffet especially the fried catfish. It is so good

You don't have to be a big a gambler to enjoy Choctaw. We spent all afternoon at the Oasis pool. You can pretend you are in the Caribbean instead of Durant, OK. It is a beautiful tropical paradise. The rooms in the tower are very nice too.

An over all outstanding resort sort of in middle of nowhere (not that Durant is not a nice small Oklahoma town). Surrounded by prairie and rolling hills but totally self sufficent with decent restaurnats and lovely people providing friendly service. Casino is clean, modern and only moderatley smokey. Only objection was to a somewhat lumpy hard bed.Pleasent overnight stay.

Room Tip: West facing have pool view but road noise is muted but there

Stayed here in July2012 and had to come back in Aug 2012 for the Oasis pool area. There is no rate schedule, so the second time I paid 40 dollars more for the room. Also had to stay in a smoking queen when we wanted a king non-smoking. Got food poisoning from unrefrigeratored mayo in July and in August the guy who does the grilling did not show up for three days so no hamburgers, chicken or hot dogs. They can't find someone else to run the propane grill ??? Amazing. We stayed at the Choctaw Inn both times to be closer to the pool area. Check in clerk, Chyna very UNfriendly. In July we tried to check in at 330 but room wasn't ready. She took all info so that would speed up info when we came back. Came back at five pm and of course none of the info was saved so we had to do that again. Oh and the line was long both times. No vallet at the Inn so messing with all the baggage in the triple digit temps was no fun.
The machines at the Casino are very, very tight. Save your money and go to Win star or kingston or Madill to gamble. Food court food is very bad (looks like it was sitting out day), Why not have more food choices for people at the pool??? Will be back to use the pools next year but will pack a cooler with food as the food is dicey here.

Stayed 1 night at the Inn --- Rooms are becoming a little used at the Inn -- there not bad but have some wear and tear. The bed's were great and the room's are a good size.I like the close parking at the Inn. It is night and day between the Tower and the Inn.Customer Service was ok but i stay at another Choctaw property { Grant,Okla } that has the best - I think - service. All in all this is a nice place and really is a resort.

We stayed in the Tower. The bed was good and room fantastic. The pools were great and swim up bar had pretty good variety of beer and alcohol. We are not big gamblers but i did win a little money. We had no problem with customer service everyone was helpful.
