“Nice Hotel and Casino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2012

We stay here several times a year and really enjoy it. The Hotel is very nice and the beds are very comfortable; however, the Inn's best need a major upgrade and are not pillow top worn and very hard. The slots you can play and enjoy where you gambling money goes far and you can have fun. The poker room is nice and large, but when we usually go during the week there are only a few table running and none of the games open are ever limit games. I don't understand why in Oklahoma you have to pay 50 cents a hand to play the table games; shoot after 40 hands you have already lost $20 for nothing but just getting to play the game...why is Oklahoma Casino forced to pay this? We go to Firelake in Shawnee and they at least don't have this fee every other month, why can't any of the other Casino's in Oklahoma do this? Overall, we love the rooms in the tower, we just don't like staying in a king room because their is NO view and you can hear the train come by a lot. We had to stay in an handicap room the last time we when, it's larger, but prefer the basic rooms bathroom better. We do not like have they have fenced off all the parking up front of the hotel for VALET ONLY, I know it's free to hotel guest, but it takes forever to get your car and you still have to tip...therefore, it's not free. They make you park all the way back in the parking garage and you have to walk a mile to the hotel elevators...no very customer friendly...I think they need to rethink this.

Room Tip: Try to get a Queen room that faces the pool resort area for a good view, the king rooms have a bad v...

Thank you for your comments, KarenTravelLover. Your attention to detail is evident throughout your review which provides helpful feedback. The State of Oklahoma mandates that we charge an ante on Tablegames but we hope that will be reconsidered in the future. Again, thank you for sharing your experience and we hope to have you back as our guest soon.
Thank you,

Enjoyed one night saying in the new grand tower king. Nice, clean rooms. Comfortable beds and nonsmoking. Do not waste your money eating at any place here other than the 24 house snack bar. Ate at steakhouse it was terrible. Do not order filet mignon worst ever had. Husband ordered prawns. It was frozen shrimp on pasta. Bread is interesting I believe it had raisins in it? Casino was smokey like most. Fun. Quick trip from Dallas getaway.

Other than the management's attempt to classify a standard executive king room as a suite, and charge $150 over price point , and the inoperable coffee maker and inoperable hair dryer, the hotel with it's amenities is First Class. The upgrade from rack room rate to Bufalo "Suite" is not worth the extra $150/night. Date of stay: Sept 21st

I have stayed at many casino hotels across the country, but none better than Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant. My recent stay here was amazing. The tower double queen room was luxurious and comfortable with all of the amenities necessary for an excellent stay. The buffet restaurant had a wide variety of food. It was pretty good for the price. The casino is very nice. Even though it is a smoking venue, the ventilation is great because it never seemed smokey. Everything was clean and well appointed. But, the very best part of the entire experience was the staff. From the first conversation setting up the reservation to the front desk clerk, to the valet staff and bell hop staff, to the floor workers and restaurant staff..................every single employee was friendly and very helpful. It is obvious that the management believes in excellent customer service and makes certain that the message is conveyed through the staff to the guests. I will not only return here time and time again, but I will recommend it to everyone that I know.

The hotel casino was a great place to stay. The tower king room was roomy and comfortable. A little pricey but it was a Saturday night. We had a little luck at the casino so that was fun. The music at the two venues was excellent. We ate dinner at Gilley's and it was alright. Breakfast was at the buffet and it tasted like buffet food. The employees were friendly and helpful everywhere we went. Overall, we will return.

We stayed in the Choctaw Inn, onsite, and and the rooms were nicer than I remember them being. The Grand Tower is great, cost a little more, the Inn in very nice as well. The Butterfield's Buffet was priced wonderful but the food was more mediocre than in times past. Same with breakfast at the Blue Moon, about $7 a plate but not delicious, good service. Had some garlic cheese fries at the Grill and they were really good. Martinis were $6.25 each, not bad. The gambling was great. Usually I play and just stay within my fun money budget and have a great time and get plenty of play time for the money I plan to spend. But... this time I actually won. Played on $148, left with $179, strictly referring to the gaming money. Works for me and had a great time. Alot of nice people there. Again, food was mediocre but not over priced.

First time last weekend at the Choctaw Casino. We are regulars in Vegas but had never been to it. Went to see Alan Jackson in concert. Rooms very nice, but very pricey for $300 per night. Food everywhere was good, people very friendly. We did not like the venu for Jackson, the seating is floor seating with folding chairs; which, if I had known, would NEVER have gotten tickets for. Short show for the money but Alan was awesome, of course! Even though country fans are much nicer and did not stand up the entire time it was still too hard to see. Even though most everything was favorable why will I never be back?? I am a non smoker and it was the smokiest, stinkiest casino I have ever been in. Could hardly wait to get home to wash all of our clothes. I can still smell the stink. So...all you smokers can enjoy the overpriced rooms all you want, we will stay home. BTW, my husband's iphone was stolen off of him while he gambled and a fellow employee he works with had his laptop stolen out of his room while he was gambling last time. Hotel told him it was his problem since he "left valuables in the room". See a pattern there?

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker, DO NOT go here!
