Isle of Capri Casino & Inn at the Isle of Capri A review of DiamondJacks Casino and Resort
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.
