... gracious to us; he showed us through the entire museum (which is mostly outside), talked about where some of the different aircraft came from, some details on the repairs and refurbishment of some of them. He took us into the small museum building where there were many displays of airplane models, and parts of airplanes (gunsights, missles, etc.). As Jack described it, they had more aircraft than they could deal with. One of these was an F-102 that ...

After our tour we got one of the Beignet's from Cafe Mundo and enjoyed it immensely. We found a great place for dinner and in between the tour and our pick up time of 8:00 p.m. we walked up and down just about every street that looked interesting, people watched, watched street performers, saw two weddings and one group of wedding goers with a police escort marching down the street complete with ...

We didn't catch anything, but saw a huge alligator swimming by and barely missed catching a Gar which must have been at least three feet long... ask the boys, it has probably grown since then. That evening we all had a cookout complete ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DiamondJacks Casino and Resort Bossier City
The rooms are great, but.........
I agree with the last reviewer..The rooms at the Isle are great, BUT....... the Casino has little to be desired...I've been going to the Casino for many, many years now and it has not changed..Only the surroundings have changed..By the way, the POOL!!!! EXCELLENT! If you close your eyes, and just imagine for one second you are in Cancun, you will LOVE the new pool at The Isle..But, like what I said, everything SURROUNDING the Casino is great, but they can seriously use an update as far as the actual casino is concerned...Kind of humdrum...not like Hollywood or Horseshoe...BUT, the pool almost makes up for any shortcomings in the casino!!! Any questions..contact me..would love to answer..
Love the Isle's!!!!!!!!
I love staying at the isle of capri it has the best rooms very spacious I love the tubs and that the shower is separte from the tub.the only thing rooms could be a little cleaner like comet are some kind of bathroom cleaner for tub and sink when you have mutiple people in the room and you don't want to bother housekeeping,and the furinture in the living area could use some upholestry cleaning kind of dingy.Overall best rooms of all the casinos in bossier and sherveport just need a little work on cleaning staff.
Not what we expected
My husband and I stayed in a king suite. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. However, the room was not as clean as we expected it to be. The toilet did not flush properly, and the toilet seat was soiled upon check-in. We cleaned it ourselves because we were there to have fun, and didn't want to complain. Later, I decided to take a bath in the jacuzzi tub. It was not clean either. We had already unpacked our things and wanted to relax, so I didn't call to complain, because I didn't want to be disturbed by housekeeping coming into our room. I cleaned the tub myself, and as I reaching for towels on the glass shelves above the tub, I noticed that the shelves were covered in dust. The binder of hotel services had pages missing from it. We was also found a couple of ants in the bed. We had visited the casino in the past, and it is always very clean, as are their bathrooms. The casino had given me the impression that their hotel rooms would be equally as clean. Not true in our case. We will probably go back, but next time I'll inspect the room before we unpack, and request housekeeping services or another room before we relax and settle in.
Loved the tubs at Isle of Capri
We stayed at the Isle of Capri because we had heard of their great rooms. After a day in the casino, there is nothing better than a soak in the in room hot tubs. My wife and I would soak in the tub then jump into bed. Wouldn't be long before we were ready for the casino action again. We will definitely be back.
Loved the Isle at Bossier City
On our recent visit to the Isle at Bossier, the rooms were very clean and "roomy" for 3 people. We had an exceptional maid who supplied us with the necessary amenities to make our stay more pleasant. The casino was exciting and beautiful decor. Good food and drink, too.
Isle of Capri Casino & Inn at the Isle of Capri
Visited the Isle of Capri Casino and stayed at the Inn at the Isle of Capri over Christmas 2003. The casino was so-so, larger than I expected. Had thousands of slot macines and some table games.The Inn was about average with a less than average price. We made reservations with their 800 number, for $59/night (the hotel, apparently much fancier, was $109/night). Along I-10 were signs advertising the Inn for $29 per night. When we checked in at the desk, the clerk said "I see you are scheduled for $59 per night, haven't you seen a better price?" When we told her we'd seen billboard for that price, she gave it to us for $29 and then told us if we'd go to the Casino and get "rewards cards" we would get the rooms for $19 per night. You can't beat that!The Inn was the typical standard room, 2 queen beds or a king-size bed. Not anything out of the ordinary, but great for the price. The one complaint I would have is that the sound-proofing of the rooms is not what it could be. Other than Christmas eve, that really wasn't a problem. The Inn was just across a parking lot from the casino. The area surrounding the casino was industrial. One interesting item, there was a train track just outside the Inn that you had to cross to get to the casino. Quite a few noisy trains came by. Not much of a noise problem for us, as there were no trains running Christmas Eve and day.The Casino was a typical casino. Not much in the way of entertainment and the food in the restaurants was somewhat pricey and was not super great, but was adequate. The casino was really packed on Christmas Day surprisingly.All in all, it was a good three-day destination, if you like gambling. There was a nice looking beach about a mile or two east on I-10 (nearer to Harrah's Casino), so it might be a good location for summertime.
Loved the Isle of Capri Hotel and Casino
Everything about the Isle of Capri was excellent. This includes the hotel and personnel in all aspects; the casino and the eating facilities.
Won't gp Back
My wife and I generally make several trips to La. and or to Vegas every year. In the past Isle of Capri HAD been adequate. Attempted to make reservations for birthday (generally we receive comp rooms). No room at the casino. However use our (ISEL OF CAPRI) motel and free shuttle ... only $59.95+. Checked in ... dropped off bags ... shuutle to casion somewhat slow and very dirty. Gambled ... talked to others at tables ... they had just requested and received a room for the night ... queried desk ... no rooms available ...had a nice dinner at the casino resturant. Returned to room : 1) Smelled terrible 2) Paint peeling on walls 3) Carpet loose from floor and moldy 4) Noxious smell coming from heater / ac. 5) Shower/tub enamel was gouged and chipped 6) remainder of bath was ... HELP Notified front desk ... was told that they "have never been in a room and don't know what they are supposed to look / smell like. Asked for alternate room ... 15 minutes ... found room. Now apx 11 PM Arrived new room ... better ... still some smell, but NEW carpet. Bath could use paint, stain removal, tile replacement. 11:30 PM peson(s) in room next door arrive 5 - 6 people.

Isle rooms are awesome; casino a bit lacking
The rooms at the Isle are wonderful and spacious with blue-green tropical decor. The one I stayed in was clean and had a nice upper-floor view to the south. Bed was confortable and linens were clean and good. I thought that, as far as being a hotel room was concerned, the Isle was on a par, or better than a SUITE at the Magic (now Boomtown) or a room at the Horseshoe. I think the overall square footage is a little larger. I would particularly recommend the Isle's rooms for non-comped guests who want a nice, good-quality hotel room.The fish in the lobby are really cute! I know this is a take on the massive fish tank at the Mirage in LV, but the Isle's tropical fish tank has always been well-maintained and attractive every time I was there.Lobby areas are clean, well-maintained and quiet.The casino at the Isle is lacking in numbers of tables and tolerance for 'exciting' play at blackjack and craps. I really don't know about the slots. In summary - the rooms are suite-size and are a grade ABOVE Holly_Jolly-Inn standards, but the casino could use some improvement.
Okay, but some problems
The Inn is older and not the cleanest. The continental breakfast is good and the price is cheap.
