Hotel rooms are very nice, (complimentary coffee, water, etc.) and the staff are very friendly and will try to accommodate any special request, if so desired. Casino is very big and most weekends has free live entertainment (also on some Thursday's on Holiday weekends). Casino can be a bit smokey, but there are non-smoking areas on the first floor and...

There is a lot to share this casino with the Milwaukee community. Not only gaming which is very often very crowded, but they have food (various selections), close to downtown, easily reached by all types of transportation. This brings buses, public transportation, your own vehicle, and cab service. They have a large brunch which we have gone to in the... More

The casino itself is very nice with 2 main areas on the first floor, I believe another on the 2nd floor. Nice variety of machines but like all casinos you need to go with the expectation you will eventually be making a donation to the indian tribe that owns it. A good day keeps you entertained for a while, a... More

We took the free shuttle from our hotel to the casino for something to do one evening. There is smoking allowed if you have a problem with that. I am a non-smoker and I didn't find it too terrible. The non-smoking areas were available if you wanted to gamble without the smoke in the air. We enjoyed people watching the... More

We come to Potawatomi at least once every couple of months for dinner and gambling. The buffet is great but don't forget to get a Players Rewards card first. Parking is ample and it is easy to get into the casino from the parking structure. The only thing I don't enjoy is the poor air ventilation/purification. I can usually tolerate... More

Any casino outside of Las Vegas is just a casino. It's ok but nothing special. Nothing out of the ordinary.

A lot of people on here complaining about the smoke.....which is usually what you find in online reviews, whiners that come to tell the world of their gripes. You took our ability to enjoy a smoke after dinner getting it removed from restaurants, then the ability to enjoy a smoke while out having a drink by banning it from bars,... More

If you want to get out of Chicago and go throw some money away, I would recommend Potawatomi Casino. Potawatomi has plenty of table games, slot machines and a nice assortment of dining. My only complaint is that people can still SMOKE inside of the casino. Ew.

This is a great value for seniors. It's half price and the food selection is incredible.....shrimp, fried chicken, Italian, Mexican, Asian and American. The desserts are tasty and a small size so you can try a couple without felling guilty. Sometimes you need to wait in line about 10-15 minutes in the smoking casino area which is unfortunate but it's... More
