The rooms are great...no complaints there! But the staff, the atmosphere, overall service...HORRIBLE!!!! There are not enough people to wait on people, serve people, & the employees that ARE working are not helpful, quick, or friendly. Worst casino experience in the whole state. This place used to be great, and it has deteriorated so much, that I doubt we will...

I visted Paragon last year for my cousin birthday and we had a great time, so we decided to visit again this year for his birthday, but only this time the changes they made were aweful. The hotel staff was nice and friendly, but we played in the casino from 10am to 7pm and not once did we see a...

This was my first visit in 3 years. The casino wasn't busy at all, Wednesday night, and it was really smoky. The buffet was good. My boys 7 & 6 enjoyed kids quest. The arcade is a joke, a 16 year old has to be signed in. So he just stayed in the room because he didn't want to be...

Our room was in the Atrium tower and was very clean, and comfortable. Bathroom was very roomy and since it was a last minute stay we were able to find all the amenities we needed to make our stay comfortable. The casino floor didn't have any drink ladies come around the entire time we were playing. That was a big...

After reading these reviews, I began to cancel my reservations. I dont know what everyone experienced there, but I had a room in North tower 1229 and it was dust free! And I am very picky(I've cleaned houses as a job). I loved it there! Bed was comfy(pillows to fluffy for my taste so I brung my own). We won...

Thank you for the feedback on your July 2015 visit. We have lots of dining options to choose from. We think you would love the Atrium Tower. Tip: Ask for interior room if you want to overlook the alligators. We hope to see you again soon.

Very interesting interior. Liked the live alligators on display in the hotel lobby. This place has a bit of everything. There is a movie theater, kids play place, indoor and outdoor pool and several restaurants. The casino is really big with tons of choices of slot machines. We did not eat at any of the restaurants, were only there one...

Please be aware that customers are allowed to smoke in the restaurants here. At least, they are allowed to in Big Daddy E's. This is disgusting. Whoops, the app won't let me submit without using more words. Okay, here goes. We are sooooo sorry we came. We're here for 3 days and, this being our first night, we are not...

I had problems with my room two nights out of the three nights I stayed at the Paragon. Room was left unlocked by housekeeping. Room had not been cleaned in a nine hour period. Totally unacceptable!

The room was nice and clean. We came from out of town to see a show in the concert area. Bring a pillow if you are picky or not accustomed to huge down alternative pillows because they provide you with massive puff balls that we fought all night long. But the bathroom was nice, great jetted tub and clean shower....
