I have personally experienced why the Golden Nugget has become the preferred Casino to stay and play.....all of their amenities are open and well maintained despite all the foul weather that have experienced. Their room are the best of the best and did not have foul order that choke you and was out fitted beautiful furniture. The staff was completely the most courteous and professional in which some of their competitors lack this basic trait....Although I have higher player status at the other Casinos the Golden Nugget has won me over to stay and play.

Really nice. This one is my h better than the Biloxi location. There is a lazy river and many sections of the pool. We had to cut our getaway short due to hurricane Ida, but we would have loved to stay another night.

Non-gambler review! I have been here for some events and shows and have never had any issues. The casino is large and clean, restrooms have always been clean and plentiful and the staff has always been helpful.** Currently you are required to mask up while in the Golden Nugget!

The check in easy, the ANTS in the room are horrible! Can’t leave food on the table or let alone a soda pop for more than 15 minutes. Then 100’s of ants pile up. Talk about laying asleep in the HUGE KING bed and being bit by one. Ouch! Parking can be valet(preferred) since the parking garage is on the opposite side of the hotel. Definitely with NOLA having their evacuation here from the hurricane, definitely got a mixed culture. Great restaurant choices around the casino.Mask are NOT mandatory, but most restaurants on the outskirts say put it on when u walk in. Definitely satisfied with the STEAMING HOT water.

Best mini vacation. Pool is awesome for families with 2 super fun slides. Lazy river is nice and roomy to relax and float. It also has a jacuzzi. The adult side has its own big jacuzzi and a swim up bar. There is also a sitting area with table top fire pits . Plus you'll enjoy the non stop music playing to get the party started.

Did not care for this casino!! Everything was way overpriced!! Machines don’t even want to give you your bet back!! Water and soda in vending machine was 4.00 apiece, they charge 17.99 for an omelette and just take your money I won’t be going back!! The casino itself was gorgeous with the lake and all!! People were coming to shore in boats and swimming. After being warned of crocodiles!! Loved the lake and niceness of casino and hotel but won’t be going back to casino!!


Hotel is nice but service is lacking. No daily room service? However, the rooms are full price. Hotel says that is to protect staff from covid. Complete nonsense. Masks are required but most people aren't wearing them and staff don't care. Restaurants were very good but insane prices!! Like, New York City prices in the middle of LA!!?? Anyway, not an awful way to spend a few days but do bring alot of cash as everything is crazy expensive.

I Loved my visit to this place as we as I won.. a good bit of cash here,, this was only my second large casino to ever visit.. however, I will be going back.. the staff was very friendly as well as quite Helpful.. only one thing that I did notice about this place as opposed to another place that I had been,, was that there were really a large amount of people here.. it were less crowded early in the afternoon although as it got later the sun went down.. there were really a huge amount of people it was basically packed.. other than that, I thoroughly did enjoy my time here.. as well as I had said; I did win a good bit, so I am anxious to get back there.. and if I might say this: it were a Friday afternoon and late night so this may have been the reason for there being such a huge amount of people.. I just have only been that one time so far; so it's hard to say, For Sure..

If there thinking about gambling and having a good time. This is not the place right now. Mask mandates everywhere no matter if your vaccinated or not. Nothing makes any sense. 95 degrees outside and they expect you to where it. 350-400 per night no way. Florida and Texas are open have fun and enjoy...

Remember to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙᴜʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏᴍ when booking your room. This website will compare hundreds of booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This place is one of the best in this area. I've been staying here for a long time. If you choose this place you won't be disappointed.Always get treated properly and the staff is for the most part quite Pleasant to deal with. They often give me rooms for free and free play

Had a great time at GN. Our server Ben was the best. He never skipped a beat and made sure our section was well taken care of. If you’re ever in Lake Charles, Louisiana stop at the Golden Nugget and ask for Ben. Thanks for the pretty drinks for us girls. Great customer service and great timing. Keep up the good work!!

We had a really good time. Doubled our money again on the Buffalo slot. That thing is cool.Hotel enforced the pool rules. Had an employee keeping the kids out of the adult section. They also enforced having your id tied to your room so other people cannot charge to your room.The casino was great. The drink service was really fast and constant. Even at the slots.Will be back really soon.Only complaint was no buffet yet and they need more late night eating options. Only one place open late, Claim Jumper, and the line was too long.


Stayed in a very nice $299 a night room. In the morning we attempted to take a shower and there was thick black mold around the bottom. It was disgusting. We were leaving early that morning so I just sent an email to customer service national with pictures so room 1640 would have black mold removed. No room should ever have that in it. I expected some sort of response. I have heard nothing so decided to post this since it just may be a regular occurrence and basically ignored


First of all, the website is not user friendly! I double booked because I got no confirmation! Got that taken care of! Check in was easy! Room was nice….huge bathroom! A bit of a problem with housekeeping….called down to ask for 2 pillows….no response….called again…was brought 1 pillow and one blanket! Casino was not really full, but we did wear our masks! Smoke did not seem as bad as in previous visits! Overall, a beautiful hotel!
