We stop there for lunch and to lose $20 on the slots when we are in that area. The casino smells of smoke, but not as bad as some. Still, if you are a non-smoker it isn't a pleasant experience. Come on, make it non-smoking with a smoking room for those 'dying' to smoke. We've eaten at the Grill, were... More

We stayed in a room with two double beds; they were comfortable. The bathroom was not thoroughly cleaned, and the sink was unsanitary; I cleaned it myself before using it. Moldy with hairs and sticky spots. The staff was very nice and helpful; the coffee bar has very good espresso, but the milk for lattes comes from a powder. The... More

This Casino is average. the only tables are CARD tables. mostly bnlackjack. NO CRAPS, NO ROULETTE. the slot machines were ok, but two of the machines i used would not produce a voucher and i had to wait a rediculous amount of time for the staff to come give me a "handpay" if you happen to be in the area...

It's a casino, and the odds are, as always, in favor of the house. But...they credit you $10 per person to start, AND $10 toward a meal! And the meals and drink prices are reasonable. So, for a evening of fun, with a almost free meal thrown in, it's a pretty good deal.

We visited the Desert Diamond Casino twice on our trip to Tucson, and very much enjoyed BOTH visits. And we didn't even win. The casino was clean, well laid out and NOT smoky. The attendants at the Player's Club Desk were funny, friendly and very helpful. We each received free play and a food voucher that we used at the... More

Visited one night last week. May be due to the low season, but this hotel was quiet (in spite of being next to the airport), with nice comfortable and spacious rooms with all the amenities you can imagine.

Nice little place, rooms are clean, housekeeping is great, coffee bar and cafe employees very nice, ENTIRE CREW very helpful and cheery. Very nice, and maintained pool area; wristbands for pool area access, towel checkout; but $25 for unreturned towel? Was not an issue, but be aware. Large Samsung HDTV in room, did not turn on, but very new model.... More

Stop here as a respite from touring sites in and around Tucson. Staff was friendly, but machines did not pay well. Lots of smokers and not very good air scrubbers to remove the smoke from the main floor area. If you are prone to respiratory issues this might not be a good place to frequent. I found this to be...

This Casino is fine if you don't mind losing your money. The buffet leaves much to be desired, just not worth the trip for fun. The payoffs are so bad they are not worth playing. I was very disappointed in this Casino. I am a regular player and I have given this place up even though I live nearby.
