Golden Nugget Lake Charles is a 242-acre waterfront casino resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana, U.S.A., owned and operated by Houston-based Landry's, Inc. The resort features 740 guest rooms and suites housed in a 25-story tower, an 18-hole golf course, 30,000-square-feet of meeting space, more than a dozen dining and bar options, a private beach, marina, spa & salon, retail corridor and expansive 24-hour casino floor.
Golden Nugget Lake Charles is the fifth Golden Nugget property, joining the original location in Downtown Las Vegas, and others in Laughlin, Nevada; Atlantic City, New Jersey and Biloxi, Mississippi.
Pinnacle Entertainment announced plans in 2006 to build Sugarcane Bay, a $350-million casino resort, next to its L'Auberge du Lac casino in Lake Charles. The plan was canceled in 2010, and Pinnacle returned the gaming license to the state.
In February 2011, the license was awarded to Creative Casinos LLC, the company of former Pinnacle chairman Dan Lee, for a $400-million casino named Mojito Pointe to be built on the Sugarcane Bay site.
Ameristar Casinos purchased Creative Casinos in June 2012 for $32.5 million, after Lee had difficulty financing construction. The project was renamed as Ameristar Lake Charles.

  • We had a great time! The room was clean and so was the casino. We went on a Monday and left on Wednesday. Our only complaints were that they didn’t have enough cocktail waitresses as we had to wait...

  • Went as a group of 10 on a Mon/Tue and had a great time. The only downside on coming during the week is the waits are long because not all restaurants are open. The service was great at the restaurants, bars, casino floors, and pool. Masks are not required but recommended. The rooms looked thoroughly cleaned and we had a nice pool view. We originally booked for one day and while soaking in the sun we decided to stay an extra day and they were quick to accommodate that. Will be returning. A friend of ours had a nice corner room suite with it's own living room and two restrooms. Will look into that for next time.
  • This was our second visit here. It's where we wanted to come for our 10 Yr Anniversary, and of course we had a great time. Lost the money we budgeted to lose, and enjoyed the oh so comfy bed! The staff is always professional and courteous, the spaces are always clean and the aesthetics are always well maintained. Can't wait to go back! (So Sorry for the storms that came after we left; we were very lucky to have enjoyed the beautiful weather)
