Hotel check in was a disaster and it took almost an hour. We booked a non-smoking room but, we were actually given a smoking room. But, it was very clean and didn't smell like smoke one bit. Overall, we had a great time and I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel and the all accommodations/food were overpriced. We stayed in a suite in the south tower, the carpets were stained, tv had snow the whole time, the jacuzzi was dirty and stained, the shower looked like it hadn't been kept up very well. We could hear everything going on the hall outside. Everything looked old and out dated. Our... More

The rooms were somewhat small but the bed was extremely comfortable. The Marketplace buffet was okay at best. Has a good variety of food but most of the item I tried were not seasoned well. The boiled shrimp were the best thing I tried. The casino was nice. Overall an enjoyable experience.

I travel from Shreveport (where there are six boat casinos) every weekend just to go play at Paragon. The experience is absolutely amazing and the food is great. Last weekend, I was having so much fun until I lost my keys. Well of course, all the fun was over and I was losing my mind. I retraced my steps and... More

Bypass the Shreveport casinos with all the traffic congestion and travel on down to Marksville to Paragon for a hassle free experience. We usually stay in the north tower, but on our last visit we were upgraded to a south tower suite by our favorite desk clerk Ronald. Both rooms were spacious with jacuzzi tubs.
