Stayed and gambled two days. Had a great time. Almost all dealers were extremely friendly, but we tip well. Booked a room and got upgraded to a penthouse suite, good Karma I guess. It was amazing, 2400 sq ft room. Ate at the buffet, ok, but over-priced, even though it was comped. Ate at the Brazil Steak house, $150 dinner, and worth every penny. Go if you can. All staff from the valet to the housekeepers were really down-to-earth and genuinely friendly.
It took us 2 hours to check in because they claimed we should have arrived a day earlier and had us booked for an additional day. We had the email print out showing out conformation. They do not have fitted sheets for the bed and when I called maid service to ask for one I was told they are cutting cost and do not have fitted sheets. On top of that, they were stained and did not smell clean. The toilet paper was like wiping yourself with sandpaper as well. The entire stay the only staff that were nice to us were the valet. Otherwise it was impossible to even get a smile from anyone else. We were told they had dvd players in the room... not true. There were few channels to view on the tv unless you wanted to shell out $14.95 for a on demand movie that is over a year old.
If we had not been there for a convention and not needed easy access, I would have gladly stayed at a motel 8 instead of this place.
The Absolute Worst! I have been to Casinos all over: Vegas, San Diego, Aruba, Bahamas, Tunica, and yes Biloxi and Gulfport. I have seen some very nasty casinos and being a casino I really do not expect a whole lot unless it is a highend Casino in Vegas such as Bellagio, Wynn etc. This place was filthy, scummy, and smelly. Old old old machines. Marred finishes on walls on bars doors and seating surfaces. Went there with freinds to the Friday Night Crab Buffet. Almost couldn't eat because of the tobacco smoke permeating everything due to the poor ventilation. We left and went to the Beau Rivage to play live poker and ended up at the Island View in Gulfport
playing video poker (Royal Progessive Hit on Quarter Machine $1,500
Cha Ching!) Both of these casinos very nice..clean..stylish.
All I have to say is WOW!! The most amazing staff I have ever met. The rooms are amazing the food is amazing…I give this place 10 stars. I am getting ready to head to Harrison High School in Gulfport to talk to the students about internet safety.
You HAVE to come down to Gulfport/Biloxi for a weekend getaway if you get the chance.
Well worth the money... I LOVE THIS PLACE.
The Imperial Palace is located at the 110 ramp in boloxi. The buffet is amazing. Always go hungry.The rooms are pretty and clean also.They have a good deal on the weekdays on rooms. My favorite experience about the IP is the pool area. They have nice cabanas,a wall size TV and an inviting bar. The slots are good but I hear that the crap tables are good.I don't like the new computerized roulette.Some friends have been loosing plenty on the blackjack tables also. If you like to socialize they have two good club areas one mature one upstairs on the top floor and a favorite called CHILL in the groundfloor lobby.
then ask why so cheap?
The room smelling bad is becuase they elt folks smoke on an entire floor and unless you are there to check in early- Before 9pm! Expect to be put into a room which is most likely a smoking room.
WE stayed there last night- and I am wondering about the sheets being changed as well...The pillows- 2 to a bed were nothing much-
The a/c unit sounded like an alarm all night so I was unable to get a good night's rest-
One other reviewer mentioned his wife had a headache and I tend to believe it is from mites in the beds or mold in the carpeting. I mentioned it upon checkout- total for one night's stay $78.00 with tax- so it served my purpose but I will never stay there again unless I have comped room!
Casino not generous at all.
My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the IP, the room was very nice, the rooftop pool with the big screen tv was nice....food was good at the high tide and sports bar......will definitely go back for our 11th!
My wife and I enjoy just getting away, the IP is the place we choose.
My wife had a really bad headache and could not get out of bed, I requested another nights stay from the management staff and it was granted instantly.
I would like to personally thank everyone from the Host to House keeping for their support and professionalism, where in a time of need we could have been asked to leave, we were taken care of in a professional manner, I salute the Management and Staff for their unprecidented loyalty to just one customer.
Your service and loyalty will not be forgotten.
Bless you all
