Nice rooms :)
We had to go to a funeral in Hugo,OK. There was VERY limited choice of where to stay so we picked Choctaw Casino & Resort. Our stay was for one night. Check-in was easy, but I will say the smoking rooms are really limited. If you have a preference of non-smoking rooms you are in luck. There are 60 rooms total. The rooms were almost completely booked-up for the night and for a Wed. night that is really amazing. The room we got was at the end of the hall so at least we didn't have to hear anyone else coming up to their rooms late. The decor is really nice and modern feeling. We had a king size bed that I have to say was as clean and comfortable as the top Vegas rooms. We had a view of the pool in the back so I can't really complain. Not like we were there for a vacation so didn't really matter to us. The room had a nice flat screen tv. Not a lot of channels, maybe 15? But the room was clean and the temp. was great. We like it ice col and we got just that. It was in May so it was nice to have the cool a/c when we came back up to the room. The bathrooms were very clean and a nice big tub. I will suggest, like I do with all hotels, bring a box fan if you like to sleep with some background noise. Most hotels don't have them and I can't sleep without one. The ice machine was down on the first floor but you can get free drinks down in the casino, self serve, so we never needed the ice. Now for the fun part: the casino and food. We at dinner at the Firehouse Grill & Buffet. Go get you free players club card BEFORE you go because you save $3.50 per players card. The "buffet" was the smallest I have ever seen. They didn't even have mac & cheese. The small salad bar was nice and the flank steak they had was very tender. The dessert bar was amazing. But I wouldn't go back to it only because the selections were extremely limited. You get more choices at CiCi's Pizza. The staff was half and half. The waitress was nice but seemed bothered to have to serve us. Not rude, but she must have been really tired. The lady who checked us in was great and friendly. Now, there was another girl that was at the register and was super rude. There was a woman in front of us with her family and was pregnant. The girl at the register kept remarking how big the pregnant lady was and amazed she wasn't due right then. Super rude comments from this girl and I would never employ someone who would say anything like that. The morning we were to leave we ate at the River Bar & Grill. Really good breakfast. They could try making their own hash browns, but other than that I thought it was a great deal. $5 for a full breakfast. Super nice staff at this restaurant. The gaming of course was limited. We don't play the games with "bingo" cards on them. But I did find a few slot machines that kept me up past 1 am so I was very happy with that. In Vegas I never get that. Spent $20 and cashed out at $100 so pretty happy. If I were in town again I would for sure stay here, just not eat at the Firehouse Grill & Buffet. Oh and we spent $80 on the room. When there are no other choices in town that really isn't a bad price :)
Don't play slots
Those who are complaining of not winning on slots. Don't play slots. They are basically a donation machine. Play table games. You'll stay there for hours and probably win 100-600 dollars, seen it happen. on the contrary i've seen people lose 300 in about 30 minutes. You have to know how to play the game.
One more time
Tried it one more time and it was the same thing. Only $10 slots were paying. It is not a lot of fun to drive so far and the money you budget to play on is gone in minutes. I hope some day Texas will pass a bill to allow gambling because this is sad. I am now a lost customer for life!
Lost $100 in 17 minutes on slots. On the bright side my car was still warm when I got back to it. Slots are way too tight. Choctaws have them only winning jackpots on the $5, $10 slots. Comps are a joke 1 point per $10 of play. Just hope Texas will pass some gaming bill soon and put these people out of business.
