I had the most TRAUMATIZING/HEARTBREAKING time on my birthday at the Golden nugget In Lake Charles. For my birthday weekend we decided to go on a little vacation and stay at the Golden Nugget. The night of my birthday(Saturday October 2nd)we played for a bit then drove to the store and over to L’auberge for a few hours. After returning to Golden nugget at around 10:30pm we parked on the Fourth floor of the parking garage connected to the casino. All was well until we woke up Sunday, checked out and tried to start our car. The Cadillac converter was sawed off, and stolen from the bottom of my car!!! After having a meltdown crying uncontrollably, we went to the staff, got with head of security, in which they laughed and somehow thought it was funny. They took our statement, the security guy Michael stayed with us until the police came. Funny thing is, they didn’t encourage us to file a police report with LCPD, as the security guard said “it’s a private property so you don’t have to,” almost like they didn’t want us to. I begged for them to pls help us with a comped room…food, ANYTHING as we did not plan on staying another night and had NO WHERE TO GO! BUT THEY DID NOTHING. No call back to say “hey we can’t help,”NOTHING. It was my birthday!!! I was standing there in tears and they did nothing. On top of it we thought our car was safe on their property. They have no signs, no warnings, NOTHING to let people know this was a problem in the area. I’m so disappointed in this BILLION DOLLAR company! To just treat people like trash and leave them stuck with no room and board, no food, and to not even offer help/advice on a car rental. My partner and I both love going to the casino! We spend a lot of money at the Golden Nugget, it’s unfortunate nobody wanted to help. We are from San Antonio, TX and were stranded in a different state. I have a child I needed to go home to(who had to miss school), a job I needed to get to, yet nobody helped. Still as we sit on a Greyhound on our way back to San Antonio, TX they haven’t even called (like they said they would). We had to scramble and find a way to get back to our kid and our animals. $200 to get it towed out of their parking garage. $200 for our bus tickets (because they have a rental car shortage and flights were outrageous) and to top it all off…a $1,000 deductible to get my car fixed. I wouldn’t wish this experience on my worst enemy but the Golden nugget did just that to us with no remorse or compassion.

Worst gaming ever, I consider myself a semi professional gambler and have gambled in Vegas,Reno, Laughlin, Texas ( both casinos in the state) Louisiana, Mississippi, Kansas, Iowa, New Mexico, on cruise ships and in Oklahoma, This is the absolute worst time I’ve ever had, I don’t mind losing and go in EXPECTING to lose but to do it so damn fast just ruined the experience for my wife and I both, she played machines and I started on tables then went to machines and it sucked, I know upper Mgmt can and does decide when to tighten and loosen machines and tables ( tables have auto shufflers that can be manipulated) and if you’re not a regular player then your chances of doing any good is nil ! Save up your vacation or fun money and go to Oklahoma to a bigger casino there ( one with a hotel) of the one in Eagle Pass Texas! You’ll have a better chance of winning a bit but will surely get to play longer and enjoy it more !

Where to begin. Got to our room and there were beer cans and medical packets in the trash can. I called housekeeping they said oh is anything else not done? Told me to put the trash can outside of the room and they would bring a new one. They did not. Then my parents have never spent the night there so got them a room. I can’t believe even begin to say how embarrassed I was when we walked in. The room smelled like someone had a cigar room happening. It was horrible. The housekeeping said they would come spray something. IT IS NO SMOMING IN ROOMS. Then to make it worse this morning my parents said there were fleas, yes fleas in the bed. My mother and father do not complain about these things. The fact my mother said they were jumping. I am so embarrassed. Upon check out my husband told the front desk and they did not seem to care at all. This is terrible. Plus the casino was not paying. No one was winning at any of the machines. The machines were just eating money. Won’t go back.

Main reason it’s a 4 is cause I never give 5s. Nothing is ever perfect but this hotel and casino was pretty dang good. Room was extremely clean which is important. The amount and choice of places to eat and bars was better than just about any Vegas casino. As long as you play you drink free better than what we have here in Oklahoma. Well worth the trip !!!

We spent a total of 3 nights here. This past Friday the 17th, then went back & spent the 20th thru the 22nd. Friday night we had a great time. The night of the 20th we were told we had to leave the pool by a employee of the casino at 9:30 because they wanted to be out of there by 10pm after we were told by the front desk we could swim until 10pm. The night of the 21st we were in our room, my wife was changing from being out at the pool when all of a sudden a guy with pest control barges in our room without knocking or any kind of notice. This was totally unacceptable! After all of this we finally unwind & go to sleep. Then we wake up this morning of the 22nd to no water to take a shower, use the sink or flush the toilet. Then they decide to test the alarms. This was not a pleasant visit.
