Akwesasne Casino Promotions

November 21st, 2017 ernie Posted in Akwesasne Mohawk No Comments »

Akwesasne Casino PromotionsAkwesasne Casino Promotions are worth paying attention to. A friend of mine used to scoff at even obtaining a slot card. He did not want his name or personal information given to the casino. He was afraid that some of his friends would somehow find out that he goes to the casino once and awhile. I explained to him that some of the promotions are just the same as winning a small jackpot. Readers should note that at the present time the casino is closed on Monday and Tuesday as if 2022 07 22.

Whether it is free play or a free meal or a free hotel room, they have value just the same. He might as well take advantage of these promotions. Akwesasne has some of the best casino promotions in the area. Their big disadvantage is that they are an hour’s drive from many local cities in Canada and the US. They have to work a bit harder to attract patrons. All casinos offer some level of promotion. However, this casino is one of the best that we have come across.

October 21st, 2017 ernie Posted in Akwesasne Mohawk No Comments »

Akwesasne Casino ServiceThe Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Sticks restaurant is being updated in August of 2017. They have added slot machines at the bar for patrons to enjoy while they watch their favorite sports game on TV or grab something to eat. We posted this post in Oct of 2017 and will add an updated picture to the post to show the final result. The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino is busy making some changes to their facility to get ready for new competition in Ottawa later in 2018. They recently added a Starbucks themed coffee shop in the lobby area. There is free soft drink machines in the casino area as well.

Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Sticks restaurant

The Sticks restaurant is a great place to grab a meal. The food is pretty good although the service can be a bit slow at times. They never seem to be able to have enough staff on to serve all of the customers. As long as you are not in a hurry, you can enjoy your company and the various TV’s on the wall with various sports being shown.

The bar area in the Sticks restaurant is a long bar with a full suite of cold draft beer, bottled beer and of course all the mixed drinks you can imagine. The food is basic, fries, burgers, fish and all of the usual bar food that one would expect.

Customers can use their points on their slot card to pay for meals. Not sure if you can also use the points for drinks or not. We have dined in the restaurant for breakfast. The price is reasonable and there are large quantities of food on all of the dishes. They also have a small buffet for breakfast and the price includes coffee and juice in the price.

Akwesasne Casino

September 21st, 2014 ernie Posted in Akwesasne Mohawk No Comments »

Akwesasne Casino We enjoy the Akwesasne Casino and the hotel. In fact this location is probably one of our favorites to go to in the area. It is clean, bright, the staff are friendly and helpful. There are more than enough slot machines of the type we like. This is by far one of the best casinos in the area to visit.

The buffet is well organized, kept clean, with excellent food. It is easy to navigate even when it is really busy. The busiest days appear to be Monday and Wednesdays. Which are considered senior days. On these days the buffet is half price and your automatically receive free play on your slot card to use in almost all of the slot machines. If you need to line up at the cashier to get some money or to cash in chips, you may want to chose your time. The lineups can belong. We will talk about this issue and one other that we think patrons should be aware of to make their visit more satisfactory.

Akwesasne Casino – Dining

As we mentioned, on Mondays and Wednesdays it is seniors day and the casino is very busy. There are long lines of people waiting to get into the buffet at lunchtime and also at supper time. Sometimes people can wait in line over half an hour. If you have a preferred slot card, you can bypass this line and enter the buffet immediately after paying with your slot card using your points.

The problem is that due to poor signage, some people in the regular line get quite upset especially if they have been waiting for over 30 minutes when they see others bypassing them. They will even try to jump the line and step in front of people even though they do not have a preferred card. This can get very uncomfortable until the staff straighten it all out. Bottom line is that if you do not have a preferred card, you cannot go in the preferred line and you just have to wait.

Akwesasne Casino – Slot Card

The slot card at the Akwesasne Casino works very well. As you rack up points, you can use them to pay for meals at any of the restaurants. The only problem is that they have combined the Winners Circle with the Cashier and now the lines are even longer than they were before due to both sets of people waiting in the same line. This has not made customers very happy, however, we hope the casino will eventually straighten it out.

Service with a smile at Akwesasne Mohawk Casino

December 7th, 2013 ernie Posted in Akwesasne Mohawk No Comments »

Akwesasne Mohawk Casino, Hogansburg New YorkWe once again are staying at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino and are extremely impressed with the level of service that all of their employees provide to their patrons.

We had a conversation with one of the guest concierge managers who indicated to us that it is their job to make sure that their customers, guests are more than satisfied with all of the services that they provide. In fact, he said that we want to provide our services with a smile, and we want to be able to recognize our frequent guests at all times to make them feel at home.

Guest Service at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino

We have found this to be the case with all of the employees that we have encountered at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino. From the waitresses in the restaurant, from the technicians who service the slot machines to the waitresses that provide drinks at the slot machines, they are all providing great service to their patrons.

Of particular note is the waitress that brings coffee to us in the morning at the slot machine. She has come to know us and will bring a coffee for us exactly to our request without even having to ask us how we want our coffee.

It is a very nice treat to have someone who is thoughtful enough to remember u. They remember what we drink and bring us the coffee exactly the way we like it. This is an example of the kind of service that you can expect to receive at the Akwesasne Mohawk casino.

Front Desk Checkin

We also found that the people manning the check-in counter also greet you with a smile and try to help you any way they can. Of course, there will always be some things that are beyond their control and this is just part of the job. You cannot make everyone happy all of the time.

The Concierge is always greeting people and making a point of offering help to everyone instead of hiding behind a desk waiting for someone to talk to them. We really enjoy and appreciate the service they provide throughout the complex. It is one of the best casino hotel complexes in the North East US and Eastern Canada for this reason. Other locations we have been to just do not have the same attitude towards customer service that they do at this particular facility.

Akwesasne buffet overpriced

November 30th, 2013 ernie Posted in Akwesasne Mohawk No Comments »

Akwesasne buffet We recently had dinner on a Saturday night at the Akwesasne buffet at the casino. We really like the buffet and the food value is usually pretty good. The quality of the food was excellent and the service is also very good. However this time we found that for the price that we paid, and the expectation of more seafood Friday or Saturday night we found that the seafood was not as plentiful as expected.

We were not concerned about the quality of the food, the content of the food, or the assortment, it was all great. We just felt that for $19.95 per person for a buffet on Saturday night with the expectation that there would be more seafood, it was a little bit overpriced.

The prices for the buffet are as follows & listed. On Mondays and Wednesdays, it is considered seniors day and the price for the buffet for those people over 55 is 50% of the cost. That’s a pretty good deal in our minds. In addition, you can use your points that you accumulate on your winner’s club card to pay for all of your meals which makes it even a better deal.

Akwesasne buffet Prices

Here are the prices for the buffet:

  • Monday to Friday lunches $10.95
  • Sunday to Thursday dinner is $17.95
  • Friday and Saturday dinner is $19.95
  • Saturday and Sunday brunch is $12.95

For any of our readers going to the Rideau Carlton racetrack Casino, the Alwesasene buffet is far superior then the buffet at the Rideau Carleton. Even if you have to pay a little bit more it is well worth the price. The buffet at the Rideau Carlton racetrack is sloppy, messy, and crowded. The food is not great.
