Slots are NOT the loosest
We stayed at Fitzgeralds-the rooms were fine, nothing special but the cafe there was sooooo slow--food was cold--service slow---the casino seemed so crowded and slots were one big rip off.....we have never had such bad luck. And no one comes around offering drinks. In the other casinos it took forever to get a drink also. We just were NOT impressed with Tunica. We won't be going back there.
Fitzgeralds was the best!!!!!
My sister, brother-in-law and myself visited Tunica for three days after Christmas and altho I had been once I hadn't toured the other casinos. My sister had been several times and took me too all of them and I played the slots and ended up going back to Fitzgeralds where I really enjoyed playing and altho I didn't win any jackpots, decided that I would always go back to Fitzgeralds!!!!!
Best weekend of my life
My first trip to tunica was to fitzgeralds it has a great atmosphere, and its very lovely. i enjoyed everything about my stay. The people were great, the gaming very fun, the food excellent, the room very very nice. i would recommend fitzgeralds to everyone. go there and if you time is one tenth of the time i had there it will still be fabulous.
I stayed here several years ago, was able to stay without a reservation for $19.00 a night. Quite pleased with the hotel & casino. It was clean and rivaled Vegas but the help was very slow and rude; at check in and in the restaurant. I've stayed at other Tunica hotels and received the same treatment from the staff. Don't quite understand it since Tunica has little else to offer except their Casino business.
Me and my husband was very satisfied with our stay at your hotel
My husband and i enjoyed our stay at the hotel,the casinos were nice and spacious the staff members seemed quite friendly and the hotel was very clean including the casinos...we will be staying at this hotel again.
Not a good trip to Fitzgeralds
Made it to Tunica, stayed at Fitzgeralds. Rooms not very nice. Staff wasn't the friendliest at check in/out time. First night there, our room was flooded by the people in room above us. We had to leave our room at 1am. Was told then that we could return to that floor the next day since we had friends there. Next day, nobody at the front desk knew anything it, had to actually check out and back in to get the floor we wanted.
Went to the Hollywood Casino. Wanted change for a $100. Asked for some $10's. The person looked right at me and said "I know what kind of day this is going to be". Like they had to get up and go somewhere to get it. Not a friendly place either.
Won't go back to Tunica for a long while.

Went to Fitzgeralds for my Birthday this June. Booked what the reservationist called a 'Terrace Suite W/Jacuzzi', I called back to make sure it wasn't just a bathtub with jets, and was assured it was a 2 person jacuzzi seperate from the bath! They told me we could get our room as early as 1:00. We arrived at 1:00 and was told come back around 3:00, that was fine, however when 3:00 came we were told to come back in 45 minutes. Guess what? It was 4:20 when we got our room and surprise(!) No terrace or jacuzzi.....just a bathtub with jets! After much disappointment on the wait and the room, my husband went downstairs to see where the mix up occurred and was actually told by the hotel staff that the reservationist will tell you anything to book you and they don't know what any of the rooms are! Now thats professional! After all it was my 45th birthday, so we made due, the room was OK, much outdated and we saw a couple cockroaches in the room! The morning we were leaving we asked for a night comped with the three of us playing quite a bit in the casino for 2+ days, and were told that we were comped over 300.00 in meals. After coming home, I figured out our meal comps and we got comped for a total of 9 meals at 10.00 each. now how you get over 300.00 out of that is beyond me. The casino was great, the dealers were very friendly and helpful, the waitstaff and bartenders were friendly, however I suggest you stay elsewhere. Go to the casino and enjoy but sleep someplace else. Oh yea, I earned around 450 points on my players card and was told it was worth 4.00! No free coffee cup, key chain or anything! Good Luck!!
We have stayed at Fitzgearlds 4 times in the past 2 years. Our last
vist Feb 2003 was not as good as expected. We had touble with coupons
and room rates. The hotel is getting shabby and needs to be updated.
Our room a handicaped non smoking, had been smoked in. WE will not stay
Very poor security
While staying at the casino hotel on Feb. 22, 2002, I observed from my room, someone breaking into a car. I could see them with a crow bar ripping a radio out of the dashboard. I called the front desk right then. I then watched the thieves continuing to work on the dash. I called again and told them where they were and the kind of vehicle they were in. Finally a security vehicle appeared in the rear lot. The Jeep Cherokee the crooks were in, started driving around the lot. I called again to security and told them where the vehicle was. Now this was 2 a.m. in the morning. Finally it looked like security was going to close in. The Jeep sped off at hight speed with security behind them. I called back and told them that was the right vehicle and I was willing to come downstairs and testify. Well, as it turns out, they did not even catch the thieves. There is only one way in to the back lot, and one way out of the casino to the main road, and still they could not catch the thieves. I would be very reluctant in the future to park my car at Fitzgeralds hotel, especially in the back of the hotel. I really feel like security was too slow to arrive and afraid to confront the automobile thieves.
The rooms at Fitzgeralds are only fair. They were not very clean and my nonsmoking room smelled of smoke terribly. I would probably not stay again, although I did like the quick access to the casino area. The rooms at the Grand Casino are great, but access to the casino is by shuttle, which sucks.

... moved through Tunica on Thursday, lasting all day. Severe thunder/lightning storms were predicted but didn't materialize (much to my relief). There was a tornado in Eastern AR – too close for comfort. Here in the RV park, they test the severe weather warning siren the first Wednesday of the month.
I'm realizing that weather also affects the body. My healed broken ankle now aches and predicts rain. No messages from ...
... Once done here we ventured to the STAX museum and also Sun Studios. Both good places - good dose of music history and culture. By the time we got through all this it was around 5pm and Daddio took us down to the Mississippi River to take some photos. And just as we rock up we find a journalist and a camera doing some filming. And straight away Tash is like 'hey, interview me!' Anyway, they were doing an article for the Channel 5 news about a dog that got stolen from a ...
Memphis TN, before we got here everyone we talked to asked just why we would bother visiting. Well considering the initial plan was Louisville, Memphis and Nashville (Louisville & Nashville was scrapped due to train times) I think one supposedly 'random' town to break up the City of New Orleans train is not a bad idea. Memphis is interesting to me, the music the culture, Graceland. I wanted to see this, and decided on dragging Nicole with me. We arrived ...
... to clearing it. Plenty of pics on the normal camera though to put up when we get back. A great thing about travelling West across America is that you pick up an hour every time you cross a time zone. Crossing into Tennessee was our first experience of one on this trip and we're looking forward to the next one as it's just like the clocks going back. A couple of things we've learnt on the trip. 1) Don't let Tess pick wine whilst tired in unfamiliar surroundings as you'll end up ...
... around the house and grounds doesn't include the upstairs, so he could still be there. There were - of course - plenty of wannabes! We happened to visit on the day of the 35th anniversary of Elvis' death, and no - we didn't plan it! Meant it was a tad busier than expected - and we got to see lots of floral tributes that had been left by fans from around the world.
