cheap tunica hotelsBy far the best place to stay at a hotel when you’re in Tunica or even Memphis is one of the cheap Tunica hotels and casinos. We found all of these hotels to be very inexpensive. If you play the casino and use a slot card quite often the hotel room will be comp’d. You can expect to pay between 45 and a hundred dollars for a hotel room. Depending on the style of the room and how busy the hotel is. We really enjoy staying at the Goldstrike Casino and Hotel. It is part of the MGM group of hotels

Cheap Tunica Hotels in Off Season

The rooms are typical of many three-star hotels, they are clean and have all of the amenities that you need when staying at a hotel. Parking is free at either surface parking or within the garage. We like to park in the garage on the same floor as the walkway into the casino to avoid having to deal with any weather situations that might be occurring. They quite often get very heavy rain in the Tunica area.

Memorial Day, special events, etc can cause the rates to go up and various times during the year. You may want to check other dates if you find that the hotel rates are not what you were expecting.

Call Ahead for Reservations for Cheap Tunica Hotels

We suggest calling ahead to make a reservation at any one of the approximately 10 casino hotels in the Tunica area. If one is having a conference or hosting a large number of people chances are the room rates will increase. On the other hand, a sister hotel or one that is very close by may have much lower rates. It always pays to shop around and compare prices. Use your slot card to negotiate the best price and watch for offers that are mailed to you by email for low rates, casino rates, and free rooms.

These offers can make a cheap Tunica Hotels really inexpensive to the point of being free. Always use your slot card to ensure that you are entitled to the best rate.

Goldstrike Casino

We enjoy staying at the Goldstrike casino run by MGM grand group. This is a modern hotel with surface parking as well as garage parking, excellent restaurants and a great casino.

In addition to the Goldstrike Casino, there’s the Horseshoe Casino and the Tunica roadhouse Casino and Hotel located right next door. This particular location is very comfortable in the sense that you can walk to any of the three casinos without having to consider getting into your car. For all of the other casinos in the area you either need to take the shuttle bus or drive your car to get to them and of course you have to be careful about how much you drink.


Tunica is located about one hour south of Memphis and about five hours north of New Orleans. There’s golfing in the area and it is well-connected by major highways for easy transportation to the casinos. There is lots to do in the Memphis area, including visiting Elvis’s mansion.

There is a tour through the mansion. Fans of Elvis can also walk through his planes to get a feel for what they were like.. You can also eat at his restaurant and order one of his sandwiches.

Tunica Casino Hotel Deals

February 15th, 2014 ernie Posted in Tunica No Comments »

Tunica Casino Hotel DealsCasinos all over the US are offering casino hotel deals to attract customers to their casinos, their restaurants, their hotels and their shows.  They do this to drive up occupancy and to attract people to the casino itself to enable more revenue. This is also really beneficial for patrons of the casinos, since receiving a free room, free play or a free meal at the buffet is like winning a small jackpot. As with most things in life, moderation is key to enjoying life and that applies to casinos as well. Enjoy the benefits but watch how much you spend. Tunica Casino Hotel Deals are part of this trend.

Tunica Casino Hotel Deals

The casino hotels in Tunica are no different and in fact they have to work pretty hard to fill their venues since they are in the middle of the country and do not have the name recognition and reputation that other places like Las Vegas and Atlantic city have. As a result they offer some pretty good hotel deals. Many patrons who use their slot cards will find that they will be offered free rooms and meals as part of the enticement to come to their hotels.

The picture above is of the Gold Strike in Tunica and is one of the hotels that we enjoy staying at once or twice a year. They recently upgraded their buffet restaurant, have nice rooms and they offer many different slot machines that are attractive to all players. We always use our slot cards which gives us free rooms at the gold strike in addition to free meals and free slot play. Sometimes they will also offer us tickets to shows that they may hosting at their casino as well. This is all part of the enticement package for their hotel deals to get more and more people to come to Tunica and the casinos in the area.

Horseshoe Casino Tunica update

January 26th, 2014 ernie Posted in Tunica No Comments »

Horseshoe Casino We are not staying at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica Mississippi this time however we were able to enjoy their dinner buffet one evening in January, 2014. We are staying at the Goldstrike casino next-door to the Horseshoe. They are within easy walking distance of each other and patrons can walk from one to the other in less than 60 seconds.

We like to play several different casinos at this location. We approached the total rewards desk to find out what comps we might have available at the Horseshoe Casino. They informed us that we had a free buffet available which we quickly took advantage of, especially since they offered it to us as a comp.

Horseshoe Casino

The Horseshoe casino is located beside the Goldstrike Casino. Harrahs runs the Horseshoe and MGM runs the Goldstrike.

Always Check with the Rewards Desk

It never hurts to ask the total rewards desk what comp’s you have available. They will also always take advantage of the opportunity to build loyalty and keep you from leaving the casino. In some cases you may also be awarded free play to use at the slot machines

We dined at the buffet. You can see from the picture above that there are many food stations. They are well spread out offering great choices and well-managed crowd control. The food was excellent and there really is something available for everyone no matter what you like or dislike. Even people who are on diets can go to the buffet and stick to a variety of salads etc,. Although it is very tempting to try many of the other dishes that are available.

Goldstrike Casino update in Tunica

January 22nd, 2014 ernie Posted in Tunica No Comments »

20140121-161809.jpg We are staying at the Goldstrike Casino owned by MGM resorts in Tunica Mississippi. We travel to this area at least once a year and stay at the Goldstrike for a couple of days. It is interesting for us to see the changes that the hotel has made each year. They did not disappoint us this time and have completed several new improvements that really add to the comfort and experience of staying at this hotel.

Goldstrike Casino Buffet

The picture on this page shows the brand-new buffet, called the American buffet, which they just opened in the last few months. It is new, it is modern, it has many different food stations and they offer high-quality food with gorgeous presentation. We really did not enjoy the previous establishment that much, however this one is a huge improvement.

It was truly a pleasure to dine in this restaurant. Many people will scoff at eating at a buffet however the newer modern buffet restaurants offer fantastic food, and lots of selection, with excellent crowd control.

We enjoyed what for us ended up being brunch. However we paid for breakfast around 1030 and were able to enjoy both breakfast and lunch as they transitioned between these two meals. Although we did not plan this it worked out very much in our favor. There was a huge selection of breakfast foods and the lunchtime menu. This is a tip for anyone who does not mind eating a bit late in the morning and wanting to enjoy a selection from both meals.

If you’re ever passing through the area, we can strongly recommend the Goldstrike Casino Hotel as an excellent location to stop over. The prices for hotel rooms are reasonable, and the meals are fantastic. There are also two other casinos within walking distance of the Goldstrike Casino. We have stayed at both of them and found them to be acceptable. However we prefer this casino to the others. If we can get a room, in other words it is not sold out this is where we will stay.
