The Golden Nugget is a lovely resort... We enjoyed the lazy river and firepit tables when it was chilly at night. There are many places to eat. Housekeeping was very helpful and acted fast in returning an item we left in the room. It is worth a visit!

We checked in on Wednesday March 20-thru 22nd for my husband birthday. Waited in line for 30 min to check in and room was not ready. Woke up the next morning with bed bug bites all over my body. Called the front desk and they said they would send some up right away to change our bedding. They did not change our stuff until after noon and I had called them around 6am. Horrible experience! Bites all over my body. Rooms not very clean. Would not recommend staying there.

Leaving several items in the hotel upon departure, housekeeping made the process of returning them to my home via FedEx very easy. They were efficient in identifying the found items and providing me with clear instruction on the recovery shipping process.

This is a great hotel. The staff is always friendly and the rooms always clean. The beds and bedding are very comfy and the amenities in the room are always just right. I have stayed here many times and it never disappoints. This trip I forgot my apple watch in the room. Made one phone call, left a message Sunday morning and my watch was in the mail today. Great service all the way around.

We like to walk and inspect casinos. The pool area seemed beautiful with an area to get sandwiches right off their "beach". We walked from one hotel to the other along the beach area. There was one bridge area and we could see crabbies hiding in the and. A couple of children really loved seeing that. In the casino we got drinks. I don't know if it was b/c it was Sunday, but they seemed to have absolutely no alcohol in them I think this parish has a no-alcohol sunday law. Not sure. But if they can't give alcoholic drinks, just tell people they are not getting alcohol. Don't fool them. They had self-serve drinks stations all around. No penny machines that I could find. It seems like the Texas border area casinos just don't offer these. We had to drive to Evangeline casino to get our fill of penny machines. We did not win anything.

Love this Hotel have stayed there before but this last trip on January 15 they closed the bridge down at the border of Texas and Louisiana because of ice for 8 hrs we were stuck on the highway ckd in the next morning at 4am you would think they would have given us some kind of discount since we weren’t there the day before. But Nope! We will be staying at LaBurge next trip.

Drove from Houston for Sunday night of MLK weekend and had the best stay. Room in the gold tower was so welcoming. Bathroom is designed so well- other hotels should mirror the separate large tub, closed door toilet, and extra large tiled shower with overhead rain shower. Plenty of toiletries too. Comfy king size bed with lots of pillows. Separate sitting chair with ottoman and a dining nook! Enjoyed a drink from Landry’s outside bar and sat at the fire pits before ending the night at the casino.

All of the casinos are guilty of tight machines especially since Covid. They all send to you flyers about "free" rooms, play credit (gas money really) and food credit. The food credit was a gyp for sure. Who would see that the room is free for two nights all week long and think that the food credit (still only gas money for me $15) is only good Monday through Thursday??? What would be the pain for them to make that all week long as well? It's not that much money compared to the prices of meals at any of the restaurants.

Nice casino, many new games. Stayed Friday and Saturday, Friday wasn't to busy but Saturday was packed. Easy check in Friday no lines. The Claim Jumper has the best breakfast around. They also have room service. The sports book is nice and the service was great. I had the best burger there. Although I lost had a great Time. Stan H.
