L'Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles
Travel Blogs from Lake Charles
Quick entry, then back to the Casino for a little early morning action. Twenty-five bucks and I get a RV hookup site and all the fantastic amenities of this fine resort. What a deal. Gotta be on the road by noon - New Orleans, here I come!
Not much happened on this day. We had a few hours to drive to Lake Charles in order to take a boat tour into the Louisiana bayou. Naturally, in preparation for this we watched The Princess and The Frog in the van on the way. On arrival we met up with the boat tour leader, who was called Cajun Jack. The 'Cajuns' are originally from Canada and migrated hundreds of years ago and settled in the ...
... the nearest casino. The buffet ended up being the best deal and was a good choice. I'm still in the Vegan mode but found plenty of good food choices. We played some poker machines but ended up even, at the end of the day.
I'm including some pictures of homes on North Lakeshore Drive. We took a short drive in this area, which is way cool.
Made the drive up to and through Houston and thought all was good, crossing into Louisiana. Wrong. We stopped at the LA travel center, the first off ramp in La, and I spotted a flat on the right rear of RV, After clearing things up with AAA, that I did have RV coverage, 2 hours later the spare was on. The damaged tire could not be saved and we headed into Sulphur for a $400.00 ...
... homes (southern style) with lovely old trees and some have pontoons with boat shed across the road from the house.
We had dinner at Steamboat Bills to try the southern cuisine. Everything is fried and they like it spicy too. We were not impressed.

Historical Traveler Reviews L'Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles
A few weeks before our stay, we stopped by on our way back from Coushatta. We gambled about 4 to 6 hours. I played very slow, because I wasn't hitting anything. It was incredibly crowded and lines for the buffet were aweful....
My husband and I stayed 1 night, our first time ever gambling. Our first shock was the cost of rooms. $129.00 for a Tuesday night seemed a little steep. We checked in after 9pm, took showers and went in search of food only to find out that all kitchens were shut down to clean cooking vents. Not even any room service. Needless to say, there were many angry hungry guests. Finally arangements were made for the cafe to cook in the buffett area. Our food (finally at midnight) was free but really bad. Our meat was raw and the couple next to us had oozing pancakes. Our waitress was nice but talked bad about other customers which made us wonder what she was saying about us.
My mother and father-in-law, my husband and I and our three children went to L'Auberge du Lac for a few days to get away. This hotel was very nice. We all enjoyed the Luxurious bedding....the best pillows and soft sheets! I have stayed in upscale hotel rooms in Vegas and none compared to the bedding here! I cannot say enough about it. I have never felt more at home in a hotel room as far as the bath, bedding, and comfortable robe and slippers. The turn-down service with a chocolate is nice. I don't drink coffee but if you do, there is not an in room coffee pot , you have to travel downstairs into the casino to get free drinks at the "help yourself" beverage area or go to the Latte shop also located downstairs. *If you take kids....make sure its not raining! The pool and lazy river look like lots of fun but unfortunately it rained the whole three days we were there. One thing we did notice and heard from others is that the pool closes at 8pm, kinda early (hopefully this will change soon.) Beautiful golf course right outside to play...(unless it's raining) I would say the eateries are a bit high priced at the hotel. The casino feels just like vegas. Overall... and considering the rain, I will definately go back....this place was a great experience.
Loved The Hotel And The Casino
This hotel was excellent, the service was great. We enjoyed our time in the Casino. I would recommend this hotel, it was a great get away. The pool area was also very nice.
Thanks! L'Auberge du Lac We had a great time! Even my last minute reservation for a Wed & Thurs nite stay was without problem. The staff was great! The rustic, hill country atmosphere was warm with a lobby fireplace, stone, slate and carved wood trim made for a friendly greeting. Our original room did not meet my expectation, but was changed without any unfriendliness. Our reassigned room had a pool and forest view from the 12th floor. It was perfect! The room and bath were very clean & comfortable. Not as posh as the Beau Rivage but cozy and tastefully decorated. The casino was very open & airy-great for us non-smokers. My husband enjoyed the $5 Blackjack tables and I won a small pot in slots! I spent one afternoon at the spa-it was beautiful and my massage was great! The spa is very clean and beautifully decorated in soft sage greens with tea light candles, soothing music and relaxing scents. The lazy river and pool complex was great, too! Lots of chaise loungers, umbellas, and cabanas. The tubing was fun! The swim up bar terrific! We dined at the buffet several times-it was ok-not great, but satisfying. The Jack Daniels Grill was tastier and the live music encouraged dancing and sing-along. My husband will bring his golf clubs on a future trip-the course is beautiful. Lake Charles you've got a winner! We'll be back and bring friends next time!
The hotel is new and the ammenitites are many. Overall, the property is beautiful and the service is acceptable. However, there are serious problems lurking just out of sight.
I Thought It Was School. Never Seen So Many Children
Stayed two nights at the L'Auberge Du Lac Hotel and Casino in Lake Charles, La..... The staff did a great job. From the time the valet took the luggage at the car, he stayed with me until I was checked in and into my suite..... The Hyatt should take lessons from these people....Last month it took me 4 tips to get in my room at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah, Ga. The food was above regular casino food and the room service was great......The only thing I could find wrong was the lighting in the room and bath.....It was bad.......I have never seen so many children with the exception of a grade school.....Guess they loved the great pool and lazy river.....Love the picture of the cow eye in the bathroom....
Will return as soon as possible....
Went to L'auberge to check it out 6/21 to see the new kid on the block as far as casinos go. Was there about a hour during the noonish hour and the place was hopping. After some time at the craps table had to leave, but wanted to come back for a closer visit. Went to the host desk to see about a room and golf for 6/25, expecting to hear it was full my new host Ana set me up with everthing I needed for my next visit including my Tee time. Saturday came and showed up early and was allowed to check in and put my stuff in my room. Now the room is no Venetian or Beau Rivage but is nice and the bed was very comfortable. Made my way down stairs and still found a $5. craps table around which was nice. I like playing the $5. tables because the people get more excited then the higher minimum tables. Didn't win but that was no fault of the casino just bad dice that round, the waitress's were around often with with good drinks, not watered down ones.
Stayed 4 nights at L'auberge du lac in mid June 2005. Though the hotel had already been opened 2 weeks, there were many little things and a few major things that need to be worked out. Upon arrival, it was difficult to locate the registration desk - there are no signs in the lobby directing you to the registration area. Upon checking in, I discovered that the pool and their "lazy river" are STILL not completed. It would have been nice to have been informed of this fact when I booked the stay as I had planned to lounge by the pool. Everyone I spoke to expressed dissatisfaction at this fact as many had brought children with the expectation that they would be able to utilize the "lazy river" and pool facilities.
