Latest Golden Nugget Lake Charles Reviews

  • 5/5: These rooms with two queen beds are huge! The bathroom is likewise massive. The room was extremely clean and even had a table to enjoy room service. The casino is a little cramped and smokey but that's par for the course. Vic and Anthony's steak house was delicious. I recommend!
  • 5/5: This casino/hotel is top notch. The pool area features several cabanas for an extra fee, and the pool has a swim up bar. The rooms are nice and comfortable, and there are several restaurants to choose from ranging from Chinese food to high end steak houses. Room prices are pretty steep, but well worth it for a weekend or special occasions.
  • 5/5: Great service good food win money in the casino and good room service with wonderful hospitality. If u get a chance go here asap. It's so much fun. We won $$ great time awesome memories.
  • 2/5: I was having a great time until I needed to cash out... Olivia was my cashier, I could tell she was having a ruff day because she was very rude and unapproachable. I asked her how she was doing, and she threw her hands up and said, "Fine!" I went to hand her my 3 tickets, and she just pointed to the black mat in front of her. Please let her know that even though me not returning won't affect your business, I will always remember how Olivia from Golden Nugget Lake Charles treated me my 1st time there.
  • 1/5: Worst casino I've ever been to, and I have been to a lot of them. The place was clean. The slots are really tight. I was watching around and I never seen anybody else doing any good either. I had trouble with one machine messing up on me, and it took us a long time to find somebody to work on it. Spent 6 hours there and was not impressed with anything except for the cleanliness.
