Resort Area Hotels Are Good Options in Tunica

 Resort Area Hotels Are Good Options in Tunica

You might get a free or discounted room mailed to you from your favorite casino monthly.  Or you may just have driven past the resort area (non-casino) hotels and not known enough about them to ask for rates and a tour.

Recently, several of us at the Tunica Convention & Visitors Bureau were invited to take tours of many resort area hotel rooms.  Whether you’ll be staying here because casino rooms are sold out, or you are looking to save money, I found the non-casino hotel rooms were very comparable to casino hotel rooms in Tunica.  Here’s a sneak peak of what you’d find.

America's Best Value Inn

Our first tour was of America’s Best Value Inn.  The lobby is recently renovated and includes a free deluxe breakfast with your stay as well as free wireless internet.  Off of the lobby is the pool and fitness center.  Although the pool is closed this time of year, it’s good to remember during summer month trips to Tunica.  The rooms are spacious with a refrigerator and microwave, and the advertised rates are great.  Use CVBSPECIAL to get a $39.00 rate during the week year-round excluding holidays.   662-363-0030

Best Western

The next tour we took was of Best Western.  These rooms are recently renovated with modern high count thread sheet bedding and a cozy atmosphere.  They also provide a free hot breakfast with your stay.  I have a preference for a free hot breakfast, even if it’s only a freshly made waffle and coffee (although they offer MUCH more here).  You can also use CVBSPECIAL to get a $39.00 rate during the week year-round excluding holidays.  888-804-0700

Cottage Inn

Can’t leave home without Todo and a few family members?  The Cottage Inn may be the place for you.  Ten luxury chalets, each with two individual guest rooms.  All rooms include Tempur-Pedic mattresses, wireless Internet, refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. There is also a complimentary continental breakfast. Of course, pets may accompany their families.  800-363-2985

Days Inn

The next stop can be near Sam’s Town, Resorts, Hollywood, and The Fitz.  Days Inn offers micro-fridges and other amenities in every room with a free continental breakfast included. They also have business center located in the lobby and free wireless internet throughout the property.  800-928-5464

Key West Inn

Although I haven’t toured the Key West Inn recently, it is located directly in the middle of the casino resort area and is a very popular place for return visitors.  The Key West Inn offers affordable, comfortable rooms and is only five minutes away from all of the casino floors. In addition to the standard rooms, Key West Inn also features suites, cable TV with HBO, as well as laundry facilities and a continental breakfast.


On our Promotions Page of our website, Key West has an advertised $34.95 special during the week.  800-833-0555

The newest non-casino hotel is Microtel, located within walking distance to Sam’s Town, Resorts, and Hollywood casinos as well as River Bend Links Golf Course.  These rooms are larger and updated with a free continental breakfast, calls (within the continental US), and wireless internet.  866-316-4747

Quality Inn

The Quality Inn is just down the road from Microtel.  This hotel is a Choice Hotel Property and offers many of the perks of this hotel chain.  The advertised rates at this hotel are always low, even during holidays.  The Quality Inn has an attractive lobby and a complimentary hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, and waffles served daily. 800-999-2922

Royal Inn

The Royal Inn & Suites is the furthest from Tunica’s nine casinos, but it is the closest to the Town of Tunica and the Battle Arena and Expo Center. All rooms on ground floor with exterior entrances, and there is a complimentary Continental breakfast. Wireless internet rooms available.  There is a fitness center and pool available at the Henderson Recreation Center, located next door.  662-363-1532

Treasure Town Inn is located on Casino Strip Blvd. with ground level rooms and front door parking. Rooms are standard, and rates are low.  800-201-3040


Westgate Tunica Resorts is an interesting resort area hotel because it feels more like a large bed and breakfast.  This hotel offers luxurious accommodations in the style of a southern mansion.  In addition to the pool, hot tub, arcade and fitness center, all one and two-bedroom suites have a full kitchen and washer/dryer.  The location for Westgate is within walking distance to Gold Strike, Horseshoe, Roadhouse, and Bally’s casinos.  800 925 9999

The only minus that I saw for potential visitors?  Most people will still have to drive a short distance to get to your favorite casino floor, but the drive might be worth it to have a quieter, more affordable place to rest your head.  With the holidays approaching and the busiest day of the year, New Year’s Eve, book your room now, and give the resort area hotels a try!  For more information on booking your room, go to www.TunicaTravel.com.
