Reviewed March 9, 2010

We only live 1 hr. from Durant,we saw Styx in concert @ the Choctaw Event Center.Styx is my fav band(has been since 1975,now 51).the hotel let us check in early,the shuttle came & picked us up & brought us back to hotel. We have stayed @ the "old" hotel several times,hotel staff is very pleasant! We were @ "New' casino opening in Feb.2010 casino was very crowded,over 1/2 of slots kept going down & malfunctioning(only VGT slots),slots would not take tickets/or cash & even ticket redemption machines were not working ANYWHERE! We assumed the machines would payout better since it was a new casino but that just wasn't the case ESPECIALLY in this economy! It seems like while we were there(I actually witnessed someone playing 45.00 a hand on Liberty Freedom slots & only won 1200.00 back),like many casino's in La. or Ok. unless you have the bankroll to play "highend' slots & can substain astronomicle losses,stay w/ the penny slots(I have at least won enough @ times to keep playing)! Otherwise,play "highend" slots in Vegas where odds are so much better! Unless you want to
"contribute" to the "Border States" casino's-the odds are ALWAYS against you about 95% of the time! the casino's in these states(Ok/LA) are what fuels the economy in these cities/areas! I hope this helps many casino "enthusiastic" people!

What an awesome new casino! Gone is the purple and green painted walls, the redneck theme music, and smelly smoke that used to hit you before you enter. This place looked like an off strip casino that is new and updated (think Red Rock). My wife and I went up for the opening weekend and had a blast. While we didn't win one of the cars or the $10,000.00 give aways, we still had fun. The Poker Room blows Windstar's away!! We are planning our next trip up as we get closer to spring so my wife can enjoy the pool and spa. No alcohol for gamblers is still the case at Choctaw. However, since my wife and I don't drink much, it wasn't a big deal. The service was great too. Lots of smiling faces and people who seemed eager to help us with questions we had.

As I am a lover of casinos one opening near Dallas could not be missed, a friend and I drove up there after seeing the new tower/casino advertised.

The casino and hotel did not disappoint (although it needs some better sign posting on the main drive as we nearly missed it) when you enter the casino it looks great with thousands of machines and for a non smoker like myself no smokey smell. The staff were friendly when we checked in the room we were given was massive with an excellent walk in shower. Free internet was very welcome as was the swimming pool that was heated (although we spent too long in the casino to swim)

We played in the casino and while I did not win a million the staff was excellent and we loved the whole experience. The only down point we had the whole weekend (other than not winning a million) was that there is no alcohol served. Other than that, a great experience and great staff, it looks like we will now not be flying to Las Vegas this Spring.

My husband and I just returned from the Choctaw Casino Resort Hotel in Durant, Ok. We went to celebrate our anniversary. We were very pleased with everything there. We had a king bed room that was HUGE - I think it was probably big enough for 2 king beds! The room had some perks that we don't usually get at casino hotels - microwave, larger than usual refrigerator, wall-mounted magnified makeup mirror, as well as the usual hair dryer ironing board & iron & coffeepot. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Rates were very attractive - especially the half price rate on Thursday night. There are plenty of places to eat. We found the buffet to be a little expensive, as most of them are, but we did receive a coupon for 1/2 price for the first night. The Blue Moon Cafe has burgers & fries and the Java cafe has soup & sandwiches. All of the hotel employees we met in the hallways greeted us with a smile and asked if we were enjoying our stay. The room & bathroom were very clean - bathroom fixtures looked new, and plenty of extra towels. Never ran out of hot water. Lots of extra pillows on the bed, and bed was very comfortable. Parking available right below our room. Ice machine always had plenty of ice. Hallways were spacious, nicely decorated, and clean. Slot machines paid off as well as any we've ever played. The outdoor pool is beautiful - looks like a real oasis. Cant wait to go back in summer. This is a great getaway hotel.

My wife and I stayed November 8th. We drove there to see Air Supply in concert. I thought it would be fun to stay at the casino hotel and maybe do a little gambling.
I
had read previous reviews about the smoke. I noted them and thought how bad could it be ? I wish I had listened. When I walked through the lobby doors I was hit by an overwhelming wall of smoke smell. I thought the casino must be off the lobby - Wrong. It was quite a distance from the lobby. I don't know how it is possible but smoke from the casino FILLS the whole hotel. I have been to casinos before and have never experienced anything like this. We had a non smoking room at $139 - it might as well have been in the bar.

When I was in bed I felt gross the whole time and felt like things were crawling all over me... No I don't drink or do drugs. I am sure I was imagining this but I couldn't wait to take a shower in the morning. Well so much for that - I ran out of hot water mid shower and the water pressure was miserable. My wife couldn't even take a shower.

When checking out, I told the lady at the front desk and she seemed unphased and barely offered an apology let alone compensation.

This place is gross - I will never stay there again. Only stay there if you are a hard core smoker who likes cold showers . Go down to the next exit - I noticed several chain hotels there - you may even save some money.

Air Supply was great so it made up for the horrible hotel.
