This Little River Casino was very nice and not smokey at all, which is rare to find! The drinks were very good and inexpensive. We went both Friday and Saturday and it was really fun! I ended up $110 up, so life is good!

We have stayed at Little River Casino several times and everything has always been excellent until this weekend. We decided to go to Little River for Valentines Day and we assumed they would have something special on the buffet. We got to the buffet around 5:00 pm, there was a special price for the Valentines buffet, so we paid and... More

All the employees are super friendly. Love the free popcorn station. Stopped in after skiing and had a good time. There is always something good going on. They are being remodeled right but can't wait to see when they are finished. They have all the games you'd be looking for also. Table and slots

Casino is totally a mess due to extensive remodeling. Slots are very tight. Must be their way of financing the project. Very noisy during the day. Very poorly organized. We cancelled our last night's stay. We were extremely disappointed as we have been coming here for several years. We will not return, unfortunately.

I was hoping to have a relaxing birthday week end in Dec. The casino is under remodeling and I'm sure when it will be done in spring 2016 it will be gorgeous.

The web site doesn't refer to it but the casino is under major renovation. Both casino bars are gone and the areas blocked off for construction, temporary bars are set up at tables on the casino floor. A large portion of the main floor is closed off.
