“Not worth it unless you get a gaming comp for the room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

A romantic getaway this is not. We decided to visit Casino Rama having heard good things about the accommodations. We are not gamblers so we were more interested in the food and beverage and spa amenities for our weekend. The spa and pool area are excellent. The outdoor patio is small but nice. There is no mini bar in the room or a coffee maker. That's just weird. Went to the lobby bar and paid over $25 for a glass of wine and a cocktail. Drove into town to a liquor store (20 minutes). Went to the pool area with a beverage and asked for a plastic glass and was politely but assertively advised that security would be called if I didn't leave immediately. Weird. It wasn't that I had a drink. it was that only liquor from room service allowed. Dinner was tasty and service was quick but there were long line ups (25 min to 3 hour waits) at every outlet.The property is good value if you get one of the comps from gaming etc. but it is not worth the $329/night rack rate. With meals, spa treatment, room service and room we spent over $600. Not worth it.

Stayed at Rama on the weekend for another girls spa/dinner/casino getaway. As always, our visit was as pleasant as the other times we have stayed here.

Spent time at the Spa/pool area and had a registered massage. Love the spa part of the trip!

We had dinner at the Yardhouse and enjoyed it very much. They had a live band playing that night (Friday) which was good. Looking around you could see the patrons dancing on the casino floor haha. Music always gets people moving!

The room was great. I've stayed in probably 10 different rooms there and they all look the same and are welcoming and very clean. I'm sure the fancier rooms are even more spectacular!

We requested a mini fridge when we arrived and we received one quite promptly which was great. Although when we asked for a coffee maker (which we always got in the past) we were told they were for the 8th and 9th floor only....strange.

All in all....fantastic! I will be back and so will my friends :)

This is our third time staying at the Casino Rama hotel. And as always, the room was exceptionally clean, well laid out and you've gotta LOVE the walk in shower!
The only downside....the pillows! Not soft enough.
This was our first time using the pool area and it was wonderful! From the pool to the hot tub to the sauna...very relaxing.

Platinum member with free rooms, so it's hard to complain ;) But the rooms are spacious, clean and quite luxurious. I almost regret how little time I spend in them.

From the reservation phone call to check in, to dinner at St Germain's and breakfast at The Weirs, I have nothing but good things to say about Rama. It's always a fun evening or two out in a beautiful area.

And I can't help but laugh at the hotel reviews that say the slot machines don't pay out. Ah ha ha ha ha. It's called gambling for a reason kids!

The hotel is nice, rooms are large but starting to look a little tired (couches and carpet). For the most part the room is clean but the bathrooms aren't always as clean as they should be. The casino is another story... I may as well tape $20 bills to the machine and walk away. THEY DON'T PAY OUT. I'm not there to have a big payday people but this place is ridiculous. You can lose a 100 bucks in a machine without EVER getting a bonus or even a good payout. Listening to other people complaining when they're sitting at a machine and losing proves to me I'm not the only one who is frustrated and fed up with Casino Rama. My mother, a PLATINUM player has now lost most of her comp'ed rooms... she's there at least once a week and she plays big bucks on most visits. How can a Platinum player who's there once a week lose comp'ed rooms?!! Rama, you are getting greedy and people are starting to get fed up. Its time to change your payout percentages or risk losing players to other casinos.

We have stayed at Rama several times and are always happy with the room and service we get.

The rooms are a nice size and well laid out and are always clean (but as always, I have to bring my lysol to give it another wipe down just to be sure)

The only downfall to this hotel is the distance from the Casino. My elderly grandmother loves to come here, however, due to the long hike to the hotel, her visits are less and less.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top two floors have a private elevator, great treat!

This hotel has outstanding rooms, cleanliness and staff. The walk-in shower and other bathroom fixtures are great but it's time for new shower heads.

The pool and other amenities are very bright, spacious and clean.

Always a pleasure to stay here but there are a few suggestions that would really improve one's stay:

1.Add coffee makers to the rooms.
2. Add refrigerators to the rooms.
Both are available on request but they are standard items everywhere now.
3. There is no soy milk or almond milk in the restaurants, catering or the coffee shop. These should be available.

Jamie in banquets was a standout and a wonderful rep for the hotel.
