My boyfriend and I stayed here with a donation they made to a local fire department that he won. Our room #169 was pretty clean and we enjoyed our stay. This was a very nice donation to a volunteer fire department. While we were there we ate the buffet for dinner and breakfast. The dinner was good and the breakfast... More

This was my second trip down to the casino. We stayed in the Lodge because I am not a fan of smoking. The Lodge was decorated very nicely. It was comfortable. No refrigerator which would be nice to store water. There was a nice walk to and from the casino, but they have a 24 hour shuttle as well which... More

I had a free weekend and decided to go up to the gambling boat. I was really amazed at how beautiful the grounds were and how friendly the staff was. Had a great time in the casino. The room was pretty basic but better than an average hotel. Great time.

We haven't been here for a few years so we were pleased with new upgrades. Lobby and front were decorated for Christmas and looked very nice. You can be a holiday hater but it still was a very nice touch. Xmas store had some neat things. Our room in the new hotel was boutiquey and comfortable. There's a shuttle that... More

We enjoyed seeing the professionally done holiday decor throughout the ground level even though our visit was the day after Halloween. Also noted that the staff was very friendly. Our room was standard but the shower was excellent.

I have stayed at Rising Star Casino Resort several times. Always a pleasure. Very nice golf course, casino, and hotel. I love the buffet. Always prime rib, peeled and deveined shrimp, great salad bar, all the best choices. And the deserts are to die for! Join the players club for many great comps. Customer service is above and beyond expectations.

Woke up to find a roach crawling on the bed. Later saw one crawling up the wall. Hotel needs renovation to the rooms, treatment for infestation and careful monitoring of the pest issue. I would not recommend staying here until the issue is resolved.
