Reviewed 9 September 2012 via mobile

Sam's Town is a good place to spend one night in shreveport.
Staff is friendly, rooms are nice and clean.
Breakfast is good.

Too bad we could use the pool that was close due the arrival of the hurricane Isaac

Sams Town has really nice rooms for a really great value. Hotel Staff is always friendly. Rooms are spacious, modern and clean. Beds are comfortable and bathroom is nice with marble floors. Sams Town's new rooms rival any casino hotel in SP. We play at both ST and El Dorado, the best part is that you can easily walk between the two. If you are gonna stay in SP, a safe bet would be this hotel.

I always try to stay here when I'm in Shreveport. I'm not much of a gambler, but I love staying here. The staff is attentive and polite. They are always going out of their way to make sure that my stay is pleasant and without any challenges. You cannot beat the value. Lots of good restaurants to choose from. I've even stayed here with minor children and never felt uncomfortable. If I had to say something negative, I would say that the carpeting needs to be changed in the rooms. its getting a little dingy and worn. But when balanced with the huge rooms and bathrooms, I don't even notice the carpet:-)

Visited only two of the casinos in Shreveport during my recent visit....Sam's Town and El Dorado. Between the two, El Dorado is the winner hands down. These casinos are on permanently docked river boat structures. The El Dorado, you can't really tell it. At Sam's Town, you definitely can. We entered the casino floor and immediately felt like we were in a metal building casino alongside the interstate....very cramped space with low ceilings (relatively speaking). All three "decks" felt this way. We didn't even play....just turned around and walked back next door. The lobby area was very nice and the staff was friendly. I suspect the hotel is nice as well, but I wouldn't spend a minute in the depressing casino.

We stayed at Sam's Town on Aug. 22, 2012, & really did enjoy our stay. I will start out by saying we stayed in a suite this time & it was comped. We are usually in a regular hotel room which are very nice - updated & spacious. This suite (#800) was spacious, but not exactly what we expected. I think it was because of the placement of this particular room. The TV (a large flat screen) was on the SIDE of the bed, not at the foot, which I found a little inconvenient to watch. I know, we are at a casino so why are we watching TV, but I just like to watch when I go to bed. That being said, the room was fine. The bathroom had a lot of room and a door to the potty room, which I also like. There was also a separate vanity area with electrical outlets - a nice feature.

As far as the casino is concerned - I don't like having to go from floor to floor & especially having to wait for the elevator to do that - BUT I do like the slot machines they have AND they are much looser than others, especially compared to the Horseshoe.

The buffet was quite good - nice variety. We didn't eat at other restaurants so can't comment.

I valeted, but forgot my iPhone in my vehicle. I realized it when I got up to my room (less then 10 min later), but when I went back down and told them, they brought my truck around and my phone was gone.
Security was NO help! I saw the girl who parked my truck leave the valet office with her purse, but they said they could not do anything.
I haven't been back since, and don't plan on ever going back.
