My wife and I took our first trip to Sam's since it became Sam's last week. I have played and stayed at Sam's in LV, and we are Diamond members at Harrah's, which translated to "Elite" status at Sam's. We found things pretty much the same as before (which is good.) After throwing away $200 at IOC and the Downs, our luck turned good when we hit Sam's. We ended up about $400 ahead, playing nickels and a few quarters. I found a nickel machine that wouldn't quit paying. I hit a $200+ jackpot and several $100+ on the same machine. Usually, I'm a "money pit." One downside is the service at the Smokey Joe's restaurant. We didn't have good service at Pepper Rose, and the bad service continues with the new name. Showed our Elite card, got a crappy table right at front. Then waited, waited and waited some more for someone to acknowledge us. When "server" finally came, no apology for the delay. We ordered drinks and food (since who knows when we'd see him again.) Turns out we were right. We waited another 5-10 minutes and no nothing, drinks included. We got up and told the hostess she could eat our meals, as we were leaving. Walked to buffet and was eating within two minutes. We can't wait to go back to Sam's, but I'll eat a bologna sandwich from home before darkening the door of Smokey Joe's

There were 3 couples that went to Sam's Town in Shreveport, Louisiana on the 26th of October. The smoke was so bad there my husband came down with a cough that has lasted all week. He played on the 1st floor, because he played the tables.
The food was like it had been cooked the day before. I had Mexican food and most of it was dried up. The chips were tough. Think my husband and my bill for the lunch was a little over $23.00 for food that was not really that good.
The best thing I had was the baked chicken, and the peach ice cream with the big
almong, coconut cookie. (Which I could have taken a dozen home with me.)
The people that work there were very nice and helpful. (THIS IS THE FIRST TIME FOR ALL 3 COUPLES TO GO TO SAM'S TOWN IN SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA. ONE COUPLE THAT WE TOOK THERE LOVE THE SAM'S TOWN IN LAS VEGAS BUT WE WILL NOT COME BACK TO YOUR PLACE IN SHREVEPORT UNLESS YOU CAN CLEAR THE AIR OF ALL THE SMOKE.
JUST FELT LIKE I NEEDED TO WRITE AND LET YOU KNOW HOW WE ALL FELT.
Thanks, I feel a lot better.

I was a diamond member with Harrahs but since Sams Town has taken over all advertisements in the mail or on the website don't list a phone number. How do they expect to get reservations? I call 1411 get the #, and the phone just rings and rings no answer...The last 2 trips we have gone to Horseshoe because of this.

During my visit to Harrah's with my fiance, we did a little kissing and hugging [G rated] in the casino and were told to stop or we'd be escorted out!!!??? LA needs to bring itself out of the dark ages before I will EVER go back to Harrah's. And I don't need to tell you how many people I've told about this experience who will never go back either. They don't want your money and they treat you like it.
