Isle of Capri Casino
The Isle of Capri is a 24-hour, 48,900 square foot casino with over 1,800 slots and 85 table games, five restaurants, two Caribbean-themed hotels, headlining entertainment, the Caribbean Cove lounge, and plenty of meeting and banquet space.
This was my first time going to a casino and was very excited, however, had a horrible experience at Isle of Capri. My boyfriend, who is 24, was excused of having a fake ID just because the ID was from another country!! We were waiting for about 20 minutes while the employee was looking through a book to see if she could find one like it, but nothing. I was very understanding at first because they have to follow policy. Then that employee called her supervisor. The supervisor came, looked at the ID, said no, then left. He never looked at us, didn't apologize, nor did he give us a reason why they were falsely accusing us of carrying a fake ID. I WAS VERY ANGRY!!! I drove from Houston, TX and reserved my hotel at Isle of Capri to find out they were not going to let us in. We left and decided to drive to COUSHATTA. They let us in with no problem!!! I WILL NEVER BE GOING TO ISLE OF CAPRI!!!!!
You cant win much, you might as well walk in and hand them your money, and go eat at the great buffet. When you get into the bonus spins you won;'t win much if anything. Very tight machines, not much winning, they are losing attendance to Delta Downs and LaBuerge. They do have nice rooms, and a great buffet. The overall thing is if you ahve money you want to get rid of, go to the isle, they'll take it.
RV parking is clearly marked "RV Only, all others towed". The RV lot is always 1/4 or more full of cars. Restaurants are WAY overpriced and quality is poor at best. Slots are very tight. We saw no big winners in two hours of playing.
Casino allows smoking and this is the best aspect. Ventilation is excellent; no heavy smoke smell at all.
Will probably not stop at Isle of Capri again. The casino has gone downhill big time in the past two years or so.
We stopped here on our way home from spending a week at Coushatta Casino in Kinder, LA which was a much better place.
we stay at the isle at least twice a month, everytime we stay and walk thru the lobby late
there are people sleeping in the charis in the lobby. It was my understanding you guys were going to make some changes to get people coming back. Guests don't like walking into the lobby late at night and see people sleeping. One very important request is that you post security at the elevators.it very scary late at night. I enjoy the Isle very much, but be nice if you would do something about getting security at the elevators. Thanks Lyndia
I had read some rather poor reviews regarding The Inn and was a bit concerned when my wife made reservations there. However, the room was surprisingly good -- especially for $89 a night. Beds were VERY comfortable, TV was very nice, bathroom was clean -- I was pleasantly surprised. However, on Thursday, June 19, 2011 they only had one guy working both at the front desk and as the bell man. He actually asked my wife to help him with the overpacked and overstuffed bags of another customer when she was checking in! When she refused, he sneered, "Thanks for the help." Kind of snotty, but they should have more help on duty.
The Inn is just a short walk over to the casino. They do provide shuttles every few minutes, but they shut them down late at night. The buffet was OK but way overpriced -- $16.99 for what my wife called an $8.99 buffet. The roast beef at the carving station was overdone and dry, but I can't eat beef anyway so I had their links which were very good. I had a piece of chocolate cake, but it was so awful I didn't finish it. Instead, I had some coconut cake and it was very good.
The casino was special in that they have five-nickel video poker. Most casinos have long since dispensed with that. You don't win the big jackpots, but if you're careful you can win a little bit of money over a period of time. Beats getting drilled at the slots. Lots of machines available as well. Went to L'Auberge a while back and you couldn't even find any kind of quarter machines.
We only stayed one night, but all in all it was pretty pleasant.
The room was expensive ($200 a night), but they didn't tell us until we arrived that our room would be in the building across the huge parking lot. They have a shuttle to take you back and forth from that building to the main building, but it took the fun out of it. We wanted to go to the casino or to eat or to the pool or to work out and then right back to our room, not trudge across the parking lot or wait for the shuttle-bus driver. Also, the Calypso buffet was only so-so, and we kept missing it because it would close by the time we got there. The casino is open all night, but the only place to get food after 11 p.m. was a not-so-great fast-food place where they sold pizza and Chinese food. They should have a really good coffee shop to serve people after 11 p.m. Also, they allow smoking in the casino, and I know it's not the hotel's fault, but I've never seen so many people smoking or so much cigarette smoke in one place in my entire life! It was very unpleasant, even for my friend, who is a smoker! Not sure we'd go back again.
My husband and our best friends went to Isle of Capri on 18th of July 2010, and stayed at the Inn. It was very clean and the beds are very comfortable, althought you can hear the people in the hallways. We ate the buffet which was good except for the desserts. They were room temperature instead of being cold. We enjoyed the casino, but we did not see any big winners. My friend did win 168.00. I think that was the biggest jackpot that I saw. The bloodymarys were not great at all, and I was really looking forward to having a good one. Although we did not win, we had a great time. The machines we had the most fun playing were the CASH SPIN. These are penny machines and if you want to have a great time and play a long time, then these are the machines to play!!! We will go back. The casino was smokey and when I came back to my room, my and the others eyes were very red.
I was with a party of 4, staying 5/6 - 5/7 2010. We stayed in 2 rooms of The Tower, floor 2 and floor 7. The first thing we saw when we checked into our rooms was a saloon type slatted door as the only separation between the main room and the bathroom/open toilet area (close to zero privacy). The next most bizzare thing was a tub IN the bedroom, about 3 feet from the bed. I actually settled for using it and the stopper wouldn't ever close off. Then it wouldn't completely open up to drain the tub. It took 45 minutes of water noise to drain. My husband didn't tell me until the next morning that he flicked a roach off the nightstand and saw another crawling up the wall.
The machines were extremely tight both the night of the 6th and the morning of the 7th. Lots of machines out of paper so they wouldn't work. We waited 25 minutes for someone to come change the paper in a machine but not before we had to hail a second person who claimed that no one had reported it yet.
One of the money machines was out of money for over an hour. After I was issued voucher from the machine and had to go all the way back to the Cage to get that cashed. I witnessed many other people having the same problem at that machine and no one had fixed it by the time we went to our rooms later that night.
The buffet is plenty greasy but they do offer fresh fruit and salad stuff as well. The cajun offerings were really good.
This casino clearly needs renovation but that could be overlooked if not for the ridiculous tub in all of the bedrooms and the roaches. The casino machines need more oversight as far as keeping them operational. Overall, my experience was bad and I have no reason to want to go back. I'll stick to Delta Downs.
Actually, the rooms in the tower are very nice, clean. The staff is nice and friendly and I will certainly stay here again. My only complaint is that my husband left most of his clothes in one of the drawers. We didn't discover this until we arrived at our next stop in Moss Point, Miss. I called immediately and left a voice message on housekeeping phone and spoke with supervisor and he told me that they would look and he took my phone number and also said I could call back early tomorrow. Since no one called me back I called again at 8:00 a.m. again. Needless to say, no one every called me back and I called about 4 times. What really makes me mad is I left a tip in the room and also tipped the lady at the front desk. So I'll still come back but I will NEVER EVER leave them another tip.
Stayed at the Inn which is clean, modern, beautifully decorated, everything in the room worked. Apparently the rooms aren't very well insulated though because our friends thought a stranger was in their bathroom when he was actually in the room next to them.
Attempted the buffet for dinner but the line was extremely long and after 20 min it didn't moved. The entire lower floor smelled of crab legs which was nauseating (expected I guess when seafood is on the menu). We went to Farradday's instead and it was wonderful! Attentive service, quiet, great food, very nice atmosphere. A little pricey but it made for a nice break.
All gambling floors reeked of stale cigarette smoke. Smoking is fine but cmon, air the place out, get some better ventilation or something.
I won't talk about how much I lost lol.
(did not notice anyone sleeping in chairs that was mentioned by another reviewer, so maybe they've taken care of that)
