We just got back from a quick trip to the Paragon and Coushatta casinos, and I thought I would give you an update. The construction at Paragon is almost completed. They are still working on the pool and spa, but they are supposed to be completed by the middle of July (which is now). They have put in many of the newest slot machines in the casino and more are being added. There’s a new café, Roxy’s, that looked cute (50’s style), but we didn’t try it. Their new buffet area was very pretty, but again we did not eat there. I hope the food is better now because we did not care for it the last time. The RV park seemed about the same. We were only there one night so we didn’t see much of it. However, that muddy construction area near the park entrance was not as bad. Most of the big machinery was gone and it was quieter. Overall we thought the place was better than when we were there last time.
One the other hand the Coushatta casino looked old and tired and worn. They have a few new machines, but they do not seem to be keeping up very well. We were disappointed with them this time. Again the park seemed to be about the same except the wifi signal was very weak and sporadic. Last time I did not have any trouble with it, but this time it just wouldn’t stay connected. If Coushatta doesn’t make some improvements we may pass them by next time and go on over to Paragon.
Have you ever been to L’Auberge du Lac in Lake Charles? It is fairly new (about 2 years old), and is a bit more upscale. We went there this time because we did not want to spend that much time at Coushatta. We will probably stop there again.
Finally I just want to add that the only people who had luck on 7/7/07 were the casino owners. but we had fun anyway .
