“Smoking.”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

If you don't smoke and can't stand smoke, I would advise you not to go to the casino. People have the right to smoke, but they do not respect the non smokers. There is a small room with slot machines in it for non smokers. The room smells like smoke because the smokers play in the room even though they do not smoke in the room. Some people have cancer and they enjoy gambling and playing the slots. The casino does not have adquate
space for non smokers. I have moved many times away from people that don't mind blowing smoke your way.
As far as the services at the casino it is great. Every now and then you will find a bad apple in life. This goes for any business. You cannot satisfy every person.

Room Tip: The Atrium rooms are the best, but they are assigned according to the amount you play. I was told t...

It's a nice hotel. It's off the beaten path. No major highway near it so traveling there was a bit of a headache. We went there to see a concert.
Tons of restaurants on site. There's an alligator exhibit in the atrium.
It also has a movie theater that shows current movies
Hotel room was nice and spacious.

I realize I was at a casino but the cigarette Smoke is unbearable. I don't recall 1 spot in the hotel that was smoke free. Not even the restaurant we ate at. There were gentleman at the table next to us smoking cigars. I was not able to fully enjoy my delicious food. The Paragon needs to invest in a better ventilation or air purifier system. My allergies went crazy.

Paragon Casino Resort is a very nice resort, however it's totally in the boondocks! If you don't have a gps or someone who knows where it is, you're sure to get lost! The place is really nice with lots of attractions (I went to see BB King). Also, the rooms are a bit pricy, but what do you expect when there's no competition??? Overall it was a nice stay, but it will be a while before I do the 130+ miles there.

My husband & I, along with our friends, visited and stayed at Paragon Casino Resort for 2 days Super Bowl weekend. The hotel (we stayed in the South Tower) is fabulous - did not look like a typical casino hotel room - very well appointed, clean and comfortable with a great bathroom also. The casino is really nice too and the restaurants serve really good food. We will definitely visit here again and I would recommend to anybody.

Room Tip: Ask for the South Tower as they have all been completely remodeled

We've stayed at the Paragon several times and have been impressed each time with the resort. The rooms are perfect and most of the staff is very accomodating. There are live alligators in pools with shops around the atrium. We're tried two of the restaurants and were delighted with both. Yes, there is a theater for the children or anyone wanting a break and we've noticed the movies are first run. There's also a concession stand and the smell of the popcorn (which was awesome) will make your mouth water. The casino staff is very friendly. The area is kept clean. I particularly enjoy the cart that goes from aisle to aisle where you can get a beverage so you don't have to wait for a server to come around. We look forward to our next visit.
