The Rising Star Casino Resort is always a pleasure to visit. First visited back in the Hyatt days. Always a good time. Enjoyed the indoor pool, hot tub and the exercise room which are all very nice. The hotel has an excellent golf course. Rooms are well appointed, large and comfortable. Several restaurants are available at the venue. The casino...

We stayed in a non smoking room, with a view, we enjoyed the casino and the buffet. The staff was friendly and helpful and will stay there again. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The buffet was one of the best buffets we have been too.

We love to visit Rising Star Casino Resort in the winter months. They have a fabulous indoor pool and their hot tub has the best jets we have ever seen. The rooms are comfortable and the buffet is fabulous and affordable. Love how they treat our veterans!!!

I stayed a night at the Rising Star Casino and Resort recently. The hotel is very nice, clean and much of the furniture has been updated. Nice big TV. The bed was so comfortable. It was quiet, which was nice when trying to go to sleep. The room was comped, so that made it even nicer! I always have a...

Even though I had won an overnight get away at this resort, I may be shouldn't be so harsh. I was pleasantly surprised by the free valet parking and greeted by a friendly staff, but so disappointed when I stepped into the spacious non-smoking room that smelled of smoke. All they offered to do was spray the room or run...

I can't say much about the buffet dinner on a Sunday night but the hotel was excellent. Shuttle service all night long breakfast was great. Golf rates a 10 and the machines gave me back enough to keep playing.

I'm not much on casinos but this one was great. It's smaller than some others but I think the payback is more and the buffet was absolutely fabulous.There is plenty of parking and it's easy to get to. I had a great time. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful.

Decided to stay at Rising Sun for an overnight getaway along with another couple. I asked for two non smoking rooms and was told that the only rooms available were located in The Lodge. The Lodge is a separate building located across the parking lot from the main casino resort building. The group didn’t mind the short walk or shuttle...

The hotel definitely did not live up to my expectations. Our first room was extremely dirty and smelled like smoke. We moved to a new room that was slightly better. The entire hallway of our non smoking floor smelled like smoke consistently. The facility is dated and dirty. The bathroom shower curtain was stained and the faucet was falling apart....
