We stayed at the Rising Sun Casino Hotel for the first time last night. The room was great--clean, spacious with a wonderfully comfortable bed. We found the entire hotel property to be spic and span! The hotel clerks were the only employees we had interaction with and they were courteous and helpful. Our check in was easy without hassle--however we...

My friend received a free room from Rising Star and when we checked in, they said our room wasn't ready yet, but if we wanted to stay at The Lodge instead, they could get us in a room right away. So, decided to give it a try. Room was spacious, but wished it had a refrigerator. Beds were very comfortable....

We won a trip for a free room, and two buffets. The room we chose was in the lodge. The room was mostly quiet except for some early morning people coming back from the casino. There was only a brief wait to be taken to the casino via a mini van. This van runs most hours. The casino offered a...

Used to love playing here and will probably go back some day but am disappointed today. Received free nights Sunday through Thursday every month forever but recently stopped getting them. Called and said I was wanting to come this month but haven't received any promotions. She said if you don't use them for a couple months they go away. I...

Magical Christmas displays throughout the hotel. Small but clean pool. Enjoyed the visual displays, but disappointed in the meals and closed restaurants. Worth a one night stay for pictures and playing in the casino.

We stayed a couple of times in the main lodge. Rooms are really spacious and comfortable. We slept great! There is also a mini fridge. It is also very beautiful during the Christmas season. Looking forward to our next visit.

We took brother-in-law and wife to the casino for their first trip to a casino. The trip was great. The hotel is in great condition, everyone is very friendly. The casino is entertaining. They have card tables and slot machines. The first floor of the casino is non-smoking.

This venue was one of our favorites...has been since the late 90's...Now it is a no go to. We could go and spend very little money and have a very good time...losing some, winning some. that is no longer the case...Indiana, first wanted more money...as a result, the casino had to cut back on the payout rate.

Grove City, Ohio

Has anyone else experienced a problem with the ticket cash out machines? We attempted to use one and received the bills but not the coins. There was no error indicated on the machine, it just did not dispense the coins. While I waited for my wife to find someone to help there were other patrons cashing out on the machine next to mine. They had the same problem but decided that it was not worth waiting when I told them that my wife had been gone for over 10 minutes to find someone. I warned other people that attempted to use the machine and they went to another location. My wife returned and told me that someone was being called to help. Several minutes later an employee arrived and placed both machines out of order. He then left stating that a security guard would need to open the machine. Another employee came by and told me that it was shift change for security and it would be a while. Eventually a security guard and the first employee arrived and opened the machine. I was immediately given the money that I told them was due me. I remained and observed what was then done with the machine. The employee tried to leave without answering my question regarding what happened but when pressed stated that coins were jammed. I asked about the sensor verifying that the money was paid out and he told me that the sensor is placed before the channel that coins travel on the way out to be collected. If this is a known problem and is not being addressed it appears that this is a very good profit center. Anyone else note this?
