Grand Casino Shawnee Oklahoma

We recently stayed at the Grand Casino Shawnee Oklahoma. WE highly recommend this location and will also be returning to this location in the future. Easy access from the highway, covered parking, very nice hotel, lots of restaurants to choose from and a modern clean casino with entertainment.

Slot Machines

There are over 2000 slot machines and slot players can choose their favorites from state-of-the-art reels, video, keno and video poker machines spread over two casino floors.

Table Games

There are Blackjack, Spinnette, Craps, and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, table games. There are  monthly and annual poker tournaments.

Restaurants

There are eight restaurants to choose from from high end dining establishments to fast food dining such as Subway. The casino has free soft drinks and even free ice cream available on a self serve basis. There are multiple bars as well to choose from that compliment the restaurants, sports bar and the entertainment area.

What We Liked

  • Variety of slot machines well balanced with new and traditional machines
  • Entertainment venue for concerts and shows
  • Free soft drinks while gambling
  • Free ice cream while gambling
  • Buffet
  • Hotel rates are very reasonable for the area
  • Covered garage parking as well as large surface parking area
  • Easy access from all highways
  • Safe environment in the casino, hotel and parking areas
  • Pool area on the 3rd floor

What We Did Not Like

Considering that there are many casinos in the area, prices for food and beverages were average prices. We expected a little more competitive pricing. However this is the only casino hotel combination in the immediate area with an entertainment venue as well.

This is actually a really nice place to stop at or spend a few days relaxing.

Slot Player Card

They have their own slot players card system. Slot members can take advantage of benefits at this casino and hotel only. Points can be used for meals, hotel expenses and even gas at the local gas station.

If you have not taken advantage of slot player cards, there are a number of benefits that many slot players should consider. Free or discounted rooms, email mailing list of promotions, free or discounted meals, access to entertainment, and a tax report outlining your losses and wins for tax claim purposes.

Parking

There is ample parking at the Grand hotel & casino in a large parking garage beside the hotel as well as surface parking. You can access the hotel from the garage via an elevator from all levels. The parking garage is also patrolled on a regular basis and it also protects your car from the weather.

Directions:

Getting to the hotel is pretty easy. Just east of Oklahoma City on I40. Watch for the signs and take the appropriate exit.

Hardrock Hotel & Casino – Tulsa

August 7th, 2011 ernie Posted in Tulsa No Comments »

We were on a driving trip heading home from California and stopped at the Hardrock Hotel and Casino for a few hours to take a break, grab something to eat Hardrock Hoteland check out this casino. It is right off the interstate #44. Easy to get on and off if you are only stopping for an hour or two.  Based on our observations this is one casino we want to go back to sometime when we are in the area. This hotel and casino also looked like it was under going major renovations and upgrades at the time we were there. I am sure it is now completed and looking wonderful.

While we did not stay long at this location, our first impression was very favorable and we will go back. We signed up for a slot card and now we have the 1-800 number to call for room reservations as well. We did not play enough this time to warrant any comp’s from the hotel, however perhaps next time we will be offered reduced room rates or food vouchers. Park in the surface parking area in front of the casino entrance. Easy access from all of the highways and easy access to the hotel and the casino are provided.

There are over more than 2,100 of the newest and most popular electronic games like Mr. Money Bags, Triple Double Diamonds, Video Poker, Xerxes Queen’s Knight and Jungle Wild II.

Table Games
