“Ok Hotel”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Some of the review's of this hotel are a little harsh, however the place does have some down side's. The hotel on arrival is very Grand outside almost simulating a smaller las vegas casino this is also replicated on the gaming floor with a huge selection of gambling tables andd machines. The room rate was 2000 THB but they did reduce this to 1000 THB per night once I joined the free VIP club. Check in was quite quick, we stayed here as my Brother needed to renew his Visa, the Visa service is very fast and efficient and was back within 24 hour's. The room's are big with Kingsize bed, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The swimming pool was empty for our stay and in empty I mean no water for reason's not given. The buffet is what you would expect, slop. The western restaurant serve's good food I eat in there twice. The elephant bar is fine and reasonably priced, the Kareoke Bar is a great place if you want a sing song and also a beutiful lady of your choice will join you if thats what you like.
Did'nt feel unsafe in this hotel many security, a good night's sleep but many of the staff we're very miserable. Recommended for visa renewal's.

The reason I stayed here was as part of their Thai Visa Run Program advertised on their website. Excellent value for money and no hassles (recommended). The location of the Hotel is outside of Savanaket, and there's nothing much around. The 3 time daily buffets were accurately described by the previous reviewer. You might have a higher chance getting food / place to sit on weekday.

The room I stayed in was in the same building as the casino; it was clean and spacious and well appointed. The only real downside was a rock hard mattress and slowish (but useable) internet speed. There was a good selection of channels on the LCD TV.

The aroma therapy massages at the Spa are excellent - as good as any I've had in Bangkok and at a reasonable price.

The Casino was swarming with Thai, up-country gamblers. In fact most of them seemed to have come straight from the farm ... no wonder they keep asking for handouts from the red-shirt government.... It's quieter at night.

If your are merely a traveler, my recommendation would be to stay in the town at one of the guest-houses, though Savannakhet is really only worth a couple of hours strolling around the old part of town. No reason to stay at the casino.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building facing the outside world.

If this place was only hotel rooms it would be fine. Every room Ive stayed in has been great (they are the ones above the casino, the rooms accross the road are a bit less spacey) Room service is quick and efficient and the massages for 90 minutes are very relaxing. After a good nights sleep thats when the problems arise - BREAKFAST! It is a full on cattle market at the breakfast buffet, going shoulder to shoulder with hungry Thai gamblers trying to get 25kg of food on a single plate, after fighting the mob for a couple of rounds of toast and some cold beans its time to join the queue/scrummage for a fried egg, twenty minutes later I head for the seating area with my now cold platter. Plenty of tables vacant, of people but not crockery. I choose a table with the least amount of dirty plates on it, this amounts to at least 15 dirty and barely eaten servings, and as I say, I chose the table with the least discarded ceramics on it. The other vacant tables are piled higher with left over food whilst the staff present take pleasure in brushing up discarded cocktail sticks.
After such a wonderfull start to the day I head across the casino floor, it smells so much of stale cheap cigarette smoke that you'd think you were in the bookies on a saturday tea time picking up your winnings. Finally, through the throngs of zombied Thais who seem to have been drip fed M150 so they stay gaming all night with this seasons rice crop profits, I find myself at the casino coffee shop, I asked for a Mocha, I was presented with a hi ball glass of ovaltine with some frothy milk resembling speutum floating on it. The poor service on the casino floor continued into the evening, of the three bars on the gambling floor none of them had any beer, not even the coffee shop that had two heavily made up Heineken maidens waiting eagerly to take your order only for them to say "no have"
I wandered down the long driveway and had a few ice cold beer laos at a local karaoke joint, much more enjoyable and it didn't smell!
I must give a thumbs up to the barbers/salon where I always get a trim after a four week stint down Sepon way, and also to the spa who work wonders with their massages and treatments for a reasonable price.
NOW GET ME OUTTA HERE! I WANNA GO HOME!

It was nearly impossible to order lunch or to find a table to consume it at inside the casino! We never tried the gaming, but the first room had an inoperable toilet....the second room was "occupied", & finally the 3rd room was OK except that the housekeeping staff knocked on the door at 11pm & woke me up just to transfer the mini-bar contents from the 1st room! The breakfast buffet was the worst ever....only rice & eggs....& no glassware or clean silverware, toast with no butter, and no clean tables to sit at! Dinner the night before was OK, except that the waiter tried to up sell us on everything we ordered I felt like I was being served by a used car salesman! Most of the staff seemd liked they had just been hired the day before! Next time I'll skip this place & just stay at the nearby resort on the Mekong River!

Room Tip: Skip this place & try the nearby resort on the Mekong River!

I stayed in this hotel 15 and 16 June, 2012. Although the uncaring staff of the "new" hotel were clearly uninterested in resolving the two check-in problems (dirty room and brown colored water supply) we managed to get transferred to a room on the casino side by insistent stubbornness. The included breakfasts were mediocre, and many dishes on the buffet were not replenished. Unless you enjoy rude pushy gambling guests, sullen reception staff, and lots of foul cigarette smoke, avoid this dreadful hotel. The only pleasant thing was the cheery women who made up our room. They were smiling and courteous.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel in Savannahket and enjoy the limited attractions of the town ... dinosaur museu...

I was there on a business trip. I'm not a gambler so casino was no use for me. The casino and lobby is 24-hour smoky. Room is clean but mattress is as hard as a rock. All 4 pillows in my room were expired (lumpy). Bed sheets were torn. Shower was... Well, you can't really adjust the temperature but at least it wasnt cold. Buffet was probably the worst thing there, millions of hungry people taking food like there's no tomorrow, there's always a shortage. It's best to eat in a small lounge inside the restaurant, otherwise you won't get a decent breakfast in a timely manner.

The reason why? I heard from 'someone' that 'they' go to small villages around the borders to pick up old people that doesn't have anything to do to come 'visit' in exchange of free 3 meals a day. Of course, this is only a rumor.

3 of us went there just to gamble and have a good time. We each took our own rooms. Mine was a very. Nice room with a king size bed. Major problem was no cold water. And with no cold water, the toilet doesn't flush either. However we were given complimentary massages and a fun book. The coupon for a free drink was difficult to redeem as the bartenders did not speak English and of the several bars, there was only one you could redeem it at and only for non alcoholic drink.
Service otherwise is excellent. Management makes a point of greeting you. The karaoke has some real beauties. But again, run into the language barrier.
