    Overall experience is average. I live in Opelousas; therefore I am not able to render a rating on the hotel experience. I have eaten there several times since its inception. The quality of the food st...  more »

    Very nice horse track, has seating inside and outside. Excellent buffet. The casino was video poker only. We had fun betting on the ponies and had a great meal at the buffet.  more »

    Have been eating at the Cajun buffet for years, in the last year their food is terrible. I understand the ownership was changing and gave them the benefit of the doubt. Well, that didn't happen, quit ...  more »

    Love the whole Experience. Did not have the time to go to Casino, but we got to go to the Races Maggie Davis loved that. Very nice grounds Facility, and the Staff was a welcome site . We travel 3 Days a week and this was a great experience.

    Absolutely terrible "casino"! I don't expect slots to actually pay out anything, but I do expect to see a minimum win every now and then. Can't even get your drink order within 45 minutes. Will not wast another night here on my monthly business trip to Lafayette. You're better off wishing your dollar into 2

    The hotel was great, very friendly staff and very clean, free breakfast was good too. The buffet was horrible. Went there about 7:30 pm, for four adults and one toddler charged us about $70. Then the food was cold and was old. the white rice alone was hard and stale and the salad bar was dirty. Insisted they refund my card which didn't show up for about a week, right after putting my refund through, the girl at the register tells me ( i kid you not) "next time just ask to walk through and see the food first" The casino's alright, very friendly staff, drinks are a little pricey at the bar on the floor, but the bartender's very friendly too.

    Would be 5 stars. But four is the gifts and the track. The one lost star is because the slots are so tight there. Lose is all you do on these slots.
