Left Inverness this morning for Biloxi, MS. Bev had two free nights at the casino. Thought we'd use those rather than pay for a hotel.
The drive into Biloxi is over a very long, long causway! Lots of water around here. There is a battleship in the bay, it is now a museum, missed the name. The land along the beach shores are lined with casinos. We got a deal from the border tourist office. There aren't many tourists here because of the BP oil spill. The oil hasn't hit the shores …

Historical Traveler Reviews Isle Casino Hotel Biloxi
I was at 'The Isle' June '02. This was not the same place I stayed then. It is now an outstanding Casino & Resort. Only two bad things I could possiblitly say about it, because everything else was outstanding. Those two thing were buffet and not enough table game selections. The people were great along with the rooms, casino and all staff. Those two little things are over come by more eating places within the resort and outstanding dealers. Overall rating would still be A+.
Just returned from Biloxi yesterday. Stayed at the Isle of Capri. Beautiful. The room had a balcony overlooking the gulf and all of biloxi's beautiful beach. Not all rooms have balconies-we did not know enough to reserve one-we just got lucky! The Isle will pick you up and take you back to the airport if you call 24 hours in advance. They did miss picking us up-said they stop doing that after 4:30-but after a complaint from us they were very apologetic and offered us free comp for two buffets. The room was clean and very comfortable. We ate at the buffet and the food court-all was excellant. Two casino areas-all reports from other travelers we talked to said they were the best in the area for winning. We did win but of course put it back. But what fun-casinos large enough to not feel packed in. Did a lot of walking-the Isle does not provide transportation except to the airport. Found out later Boomtown provides free transportation to the casinos and there is also CTA bus =for one dollar. The lady at the desk did not inform us of that-said all there is is a taxi. Oh well, we enjoy walking but it was quite a walk to other casinos. Loved the Isle of Capri and plan to stay there again and again.
Not a very good standard of Hotel
Food in the buffet was not up to a high stadard.
Vegtables looked as though they had been cooked hours before.
Room, carpet very stained.
Smoking was allowed in all the slot machine rooms. Also Liquor was served.
We have eaten and played at many Casinos, most on Indian Land, and they are far superior in every way.
This was supposed to be a re-furbished Hotel after Katrina, if this is so, not done very well.
Great Place To Stay
Stay at The Isle!!! I have been going since 2001 and it's the best place to stay and play. They did a great job getting the casino and hotel ready after Katrina and most of the same staff is still with them. The rooms are nice all remodeled in the last couple of years along with the new hotel expansion. Farraddays is the best!! Great crew and the Lobster is wonderful. The front desk crew is great also, MUCH PRAISE!!!
We have stayed at the Isle several times over the last 8 years. We are not 'high rollers' but like to gamble, and we appreciate a good value. The rooms have always been clean and nice. I have stayed at Beau Rivage and also the Grand as well as a few others and in my opinion the rooms at the Isle are the best. Not quite as 'fancy' as Beau, but rooms are definitely larger, and with a brighter more festive feel. They even have ceiling fans (a nice extra). I like the atmosphere here better than the snootiness of Beau Rivage. Mostly friendly middle class tourists and retirees who are having a good time.
My family and I just returned from an overnight stay at the Isle. We enjoyed every minute from the free valet parking to the very comfortable beds. The staff was very polite and extremely helpful.
This is definantly return to on my next trip to Biloxi. It was well worth the $139.00 per night room.
Go! Stay! Have a great time and good luck.
I recently stayed here during a birthday getaway. The room was colorful and our view of the gulf was perfect. The room was a good size, except for the bathroom, but it was very clean. The staff was courteous and helpful in suggesting things to do. We called for more towels and they even called back to make sure that we had received them. I don't remember getting that service in some of the more expensive hotels.
I have stayed at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco and the Westin in Boston, and I would rate my room at the Isle of Capri above the others. And it cost a fraction of the price.
We loved it
we stayed here 3 nights in april of 2004 . we had a blast the buffet at night was great, the rooms where like being in key west i kept looking for jimmy buffett to show up anytime.i wasnt that impressed with the town ,if you are going for the beach forget it,you have to cross the street and it isnt the prettiest ive seen.but if you are going to gamble its fun.
After a less than stellar night at Casino Magic on 4/3, we were about to leave when we noticed the Isle of Capri marquis advertising $49/night rates. We walked over and were greeted enthusiastically by ALL employees. The hotel is undergoing major renovations, but still it was lighter, brighter, and cleaner than next door. They are adding on a ton of new rooms and suites, which I can't wait to see. The payouts in the casino were also better and the mood of the crowd seemed to be less stressed out (probably because of the payouts!). The rooms are somewhat dated and yes, the beds could be softer, but for $49 a night -- I'm not complaining. The color palette is "tropical" and loud, but it's notbad after a while. We had a nice sized rooms with 2 double beds and a balcony with chairs overlooking the marina. My only complaint was the shower, which had very little pressure, but I got over that quickly. I love how your room key is your Player card - nice touch. I also like how you can check your points and see what comps are available to you.
