Jasper, Missouri
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Very good value for the price. Check in/out was efficient & pleasant. Everything in the room worked which is more than I can say about many more expensive hotels. Buffet offered a good variety. Food was good, hot, & seemed to be fresh. Server was A+. Casino was a little stingy.

Our second visit to this property in the past 12 months. The staff here is awesome and very accomodating. The property is very well kept and on a small lake about an hour south of Des Moines. The casino is very nice with lots of updated slots as well. The buffet is to die for as well. We will definitely...

Not knowing where we would end up traveling south to Texas, The Lakeside Hotel Casino was the right choice. A nice clean room with a comfy king bed gave us the perfect rest so we could continue south. Our stay was so nice we planned our return stop at the same place. On our second stay we ate in the...

The hotel is a good place to stop and stay. The rooms are nice and the hotel is quiet in the evenings. The restaurant is not the best but if you want quick food it works. We were there on Friday which is Seafood night and it was packed. We waited an hour in line for the buffet. People forget...

Lots of choices, including champagne. Fried shrimp was excellent, Chinese, Mexican, Italian and American choices, okay salad bar, and dessert choices. Staff was friendly, very busy place, so food replenished often. Carved prime rib and ham was very tasty.

Front desk staff was helpful and polite. Room was spacious and clean. Really enjoyed the fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Enjoyed the convenience of the room to the front desk. The fitness room was nice for a hotel and all of the equipment was in good working order and clean. Overall a great experience.

The room was very clean, close to the casino area and very accommodating. Everything was satisfactory except for the resort charge. That I thought they could do without, but besides that we had a very good experience staying there.

Large room, lakeside view nice. Walk in shower, door hits toilet. Bath towels small. Can request non smoking rooms, Casino is smokey. Could use another chair in the room. Be prepared for a long walk in the hallways to the Casino if they are filled.

I don't like the new slots and I don't like how we can only use our food coupons on certain days. We also need our free slot more often. And we can use friendlier staff in check in area....we take most of our business to Prairie Meadows and Tama Iowa. We stop by Lakeside if we are on our way...
