Bally's Hotel and Casino in Tunica from Cruzino.com

Bally's Hotel and Casino
"Welcome to the good old days. Every day," says Bally's.

Bally's Saloon, Gambling Hall & Hotel brings to life the theme of gambling in the old west. It features a choice of three restaurants and a nightclub built into an authentic grain silo.

The Bally's Hotel is detached from the casino and is a small 2 story facility with small, mediocre rooms. There are 238 rooms and an outdoor pool. Many of the other hotels in the area are nicer, and most guests will probably be happier there.

Bally's Casino is surprisingly nice. It features 40,000 square feet of gambling space with over 1,300 slots and video poker games and 52 tables. Bally's also offers one of the only high-stakes poker rooms in Tunica called "Maverick's High Stakes Parlor".

4stars  Ballys Hotel and Casino
This was my family,s first time to visit the hotel and casino. After we had visited the casino for a few mintues, we decided to go get a room. Our drive was over four hours. after setteling in we went to the casino to gamble. We were treated sooo very nice from the start. My sister takes care of a disabled man and everyone was so helpful. My family wants to thank you for the good food as well as your hospitaly. We will be returning again.
Thank You

  Pros:

Signed up for players card and they gave me a coupon for a free buffet

Saw a woman near the hot tub that had fallen asleep and her bikini strap slipped and her left breast was totally exposed!! Nice rack!!

Cons: Now charging $2 per ride from hotel to casino, then again from casino to hotel. Really sucks after you've dropped a couple hundred in their place.

Room smelled like I took a dump and left it in the toilet for a week.

Ballys wasted time putting walls between the rooms. A curtain would do as much good. I could hear the guy next door snoring, then calling his office the next morning and talking about thier financial troubles.

Staffs lack of competence. When I first arrived, I asked if the other casinos were within walking distance. The desk clerk said yes and pointed over a small rise in the land. I started walking to the Sheraton down a gravel road when I heard someone yelling at me. He siad...get the hell out of there, this is private property. He starts running for me, then tackles me because I later found I didn't hear him the first time. He thought I was trying to wrestle with him when he took me down. I explained the clerk told me I could get to Sheraton through there. He agreed, but showed a sign the said something about trespassing was not allowed. Heck, it was 8 p.m. so it was dark and I didn't see the sign. I still have a nice little scam from the takedown. I thought about filing a suit, but it would probably cost me more than it's worth. If any lawyers like Corey B Trotz read this board, drop me an email and let me know if I have any recourse.

I guess that's all. Needless to say I will not be returning to Ballys. Thank you for your time reading my problematic trip.

  I had gone to Memphis, TN for 6 weeks for I have work there. I found out about Tunica so I went. I went to Ballys often and actually really enjoyed the casino.It is small but thats alright. The buffet food was alright but I have to say that the service at the resaurant is pretty bad. I dont think I ever had good service there. The wait service seemed like they were always bothered to do anything for the customer and many time, I never even got a refill on my drink but I mainy go for the casino and I really like it there. Stayed at the hotel several times and the shuttle is awesome and I dont mind the hotel and casino not being together. The rooms are pretty good and no problems there. I would like to return to Tunica and spend a whole week at Ballys. I just wish they had or offered weekly rates.

  On a bus trip the group went there and we found we really had fun...the comps are very good and the rooms in the hotel are being updated and we found them to be clean and very easy to get to...the shuttle runs often, so it can take you to the casino in a few minutes...for a small casino, they have a nice variety of games and tables...there is free entertainment and have not have any trouble getting drinks...It is not the prettiest casino but we enjoy going there..

  Bally's is my favorite casino in Tunica. Some friends and I make a pilgrimage down there atleast once a year and we won't stay anywhere but Bally's. The staff are courteous and attentive. The rooms are clean and everything is conveniently located. Thanks.

  Sit down, kick off your shoes and listen to my story about a casino and hotel gone bad. My wife and I checked into Ballys on a quiet Sunday evening last month. After getting out my ebonics to English translator dictionary, I found our reserved King room wasn't available and all they had was double rooms. Funny, there was only 4 or 5 cars in the parking lot, but all thems kings rooms beez gone. My wife and I planned sex during this trip, but sleeping in separate beds made us arrange differently. We were promised a king room later in our stay, but that never happened. Then, who made the great plan of putting the mini fridge in the walkway to the bathroom that smelled like an outhouse? I kicked the crap out of it and probably broke my little toe. It still hurts like the dickens. The TV rolled like the old vertical hold TVs from my childhood. The remote didn't work. The toilet leaked and hissed all night and day. We could clearly hear the couple in the next room gettin' it on. The door to the room was cut about 6 inches from the floor, so all hallway noise came right in. Now, we're ready to go to the casino. Once again, get out my ebonics translator. Ask the desk clerk how we get to the hotel, since it's up and over a big ridge. You's better takes yo kaw Mr Brown, cause our bus ain't workin' today. After 10 minutes looking uo the translation to kaw, I figured the bus was out of commission. We walk back to the parking lot by going down the hall. What did we see in front of us. A mice/rat as big as my shoe. I tell the girl at the desk and she says it (here we go again) gets like thats sometimes when no rains falls around cheer. The mice comes in cause of all the fields we gotz round cheer. I calls maintenance. Like that's gonna help. I won't even go any farther with the run down trash pile of a casino. How's this...The next person who stays at Ballys, why don't you do us and Ballys both a big favor. While you're checking out, get a cup of gas from your gas tank, pour it on the floor of the hotel, grab up some of the complimentary matches at the desk and toss one behind you as you leave. They'll collect the insurance and no one will have to endure the pain of staying in the absolutle hellhole.

I think Bally's is the best casino deal in Tunica. I go to Tunica monthly and they send me a free room just for going. They will give you a free buffet for 2 just for putting money down on any table game if you ask. THey have win cards that can be purchased from the Gold Star Card desk that cost $10 and they give you $15 in chips to play on table games with. The thing I like the most about it is that it is small and the people are nice. They have the best benefits that I have ever found in Tunica and Bonkerz comedy club is a chance to watch top comedians for free. I would recomend this casino to anyone.

We found the rooms to be very nice and clean. The free breakfast buffet was satisfactory and we would definitely stay here again!

I don't claim that Bally's hotel is the best place to stay in Tunica; it's not. However, especially during the week, it offers the best value in the area. $19.95 rooms are there for the asking. The rooms themselves are Spartan, but clean and comfortable enough.

Yeah, I know this isn't a rousing review, but I've paid a lot more for a lot less, even in Tunica. As for the casino, relative to Tunica, it's not all that small and offers every table game except Pai Gow Poker. If you're a beginner in playing Poker, I would recommend the Bally's poker room. It's small enough where most beginners won't feel too intimidated. And for the most part, Bally's is quite free with the comps.

Bally's isn't the fanciest casino, but you can do a lot worst.

Usually vacation in Atlantic City. Went to Mississippi this year for 3 weeks. Biloxi was much nicer than Tunica, the Beau Rivage would hold its own in Atlantic City or Vegas. Let's just say that this property called Bally's needs to be blown up and leveled. Ballys in A.C. is one of the nicest hotels in existance. This Tunica property is small, rooms are sickening. We were supposed to stay extra days here but went to Gold Strike. This casino is so small that it doesn't need to be here. Bad service, food was bad and service was not well. Dirty floors, not enough table games. Not many people in this place. I was really dissapointed. This is the first casino I have flat out hated!!!
