Reviews of this Property
The renovations will not occur in the summer of 2005 but more likely in the winter or late fall after. Hopefully this will restore this classic property to it's previous splendor.

The Broadwater Beach (President Broadwater) will close its doors some time in the summer of 2005. The existing hotel will be completely demolished and replaced with a new hotel/condominium complex which will include shops and a new casino. The Broadwater Tower, once known as the Biloxi Hilton, will close later this year. This will be torn down and replaced with the Ocean Club, projected to be three 18 storied towers set in a park. While it is very sad to see the original Art Deco portion of the old Broadwater demolished, there was relatively little left to save. Both properties had reached alarming states of decrepitude.

The hotel needs to be condemed!!!!!! It smells very musty. It is filthy.carpet is nasty.I dont believe they have housekeeping. I have visited twice,once at each location,the tower loction is slightly better but not by much. they told me that I was going to be in the tower when making my reservation but when I arrived i was at the other site. this location must be older than moses because everything is ancient and does not work. the mattreses were flatter than pancakes and the bed ws so low to the floor we should have just been told to make pallets. the blankets smell as though they had never been washed. the door could have been left wide open , for the security or lack of that it provided. THE WATER WAS DISCOLORED!!!YOU COULD NOT FLUSH THE TOILET. IT WAS JUST AWFUL.

Ok, I wish i had known that this was a very old resort. The walls are very thin and we were able to hear very clearly into the room next to us. There was a dog next door that barked at odd hours . I also wished i had known that the casino was not connected to the hotel, it was located across a busy well traveled street. There was a shuttle bus available but we would have preferred to walk back and but, it was a little to far.

The view of the beach was great, shuttle service prompt and courteous. Very enjoyable stay.

i posted earlier about the hotel stinking. To add to the miserable stay our free buffet at the casino was not free. the people at the casino demanded the coupon that we had givin to the clerk, they were extremly rude to my wife and basicaly had to pay for our free buffet. I would recommend to anyone to pay the extra money and stay at the Grand Oasis

I found this hotel to be in very poor condition. I have stayed there for several group trips. Every room I have ever stayed in had holes in the bathroom walls, old rusty fixtures and general poor condition. There were not even any snack machines on the grounds. There were a couple cokes machines but that is all. It is a very depressing place. It is obvious that it was once a very nice hotel but it has not had any money spent on up keep or remodeling. The continental breakfast was okay but nothing to brag about. I would love to see this hotel refurbished and a restaurant put back in it. I will be arriving in Biloxi with a group of college students for HOSA competition. Our reservations were not held for us so we are staying somewhere else. I was very happy when I found out that we would not be staying at the Broadwater.

Remember that the President has been around for many years. For it's age, it is very accomadating and anything requested was handled swiftly and to my upmost satisfaction. A group of friends and myself stayed there for New Year's Eve and the first week of June. The pool was large enough for every to talk without being in every conversation and house cleaning did what was expected! What more could you ask!
The casino? There isn't a friendlier staff. From the pit boss to the dealers, everyone is personable and there to make your stay that much more satisfying. I still tell find myself telling stories about the dealers and stories told while playing endless hands of black jack/ roulette and occasional craps... This is a casino that is about people and catering to them as a person... the buffet will leave you in a food coma.
The drinks are great and did I mention comp? Believe me when I tell you there is a reason I'm taking my parents down to entertain at this casino. From the consistent paying slots to the food, I guarantee our Thanksgiving weekend will follow suit like the last to visits this year. No pun intended...
Wonderful time, wonderful staff, and they will goout of there way to make CERTAIN even the smallest of players feel like a high roller.

We ended up staying at the President's Broadwater Towers because our room at at the Palace was unavailable. Although older, the hotel seemed allright and the staff we met at first were very helpful.
After checking in-badnews!
First I go to the pool for a nice relaxing swim. Its a gorgeous evening, not a cloud in the sky. A security guard comes up to me about 5 minuites after I jump in and tells me I have to leave the pol area because he has seen lightning!!!
He tells me if he doesn't see any more lightning they will reopen in 5 minutes.
After I leave the area and wait, soaking wet in the lobby area off the elevators, he tells me that he has to wait for a call from his supervisor in order to reopen the pool. Still no more "lightning" and not a cloud in the sky.
When I complain to the front desk about this, they finally locate him and after about 50 minutes the pool is reopened. Of course by this time I have given up, cold soaking wet and furious after driving 9 hours to get to this place-my first night in Biloxi.
Also, upon t\return to our room we discovered the AC/heating unit could not be turned off. I just love air currents swirling around me all the time, night and day, don't you? We spent hours rigging up plastic around the air vents so that we could close/open them when we needed to. ( We checked with maintenance and confirmed that nothing could be done to correct the problem_its just part of their system. We ended up keeping the vent closed and the AC on as liitle as possible because the vents had not been cleanded in ages and were filthy. We started coughing every time they were opened.
The hotel did give us our first night free in compensation for the pool incident. Our stay was for multiple nights though; I felt that that did not compensate enough for the bad experience. I called and left a voice mail for the hotel owner notifying him of some of the problems and never heard back from him.
There are a lot of good hotels in Biloxi-I would not stay at this one again!

We loved our stay at the President's Casino Broadwater Resort. We were in a gang of 6 girls and we had our own cabin. We started going to Biloxi in 1999 and since then made it a tradition. The pools were really nice, we would go and sit on the table under the umbrella in the pool and just chill out. Everyone had a great experience and are looking forward to this years vacation. Anyone who hasn't been there should go. We STRONGLY recommend it. Keep up the great work!!

i had a very bad experiance with this hotel we had reservations for a double bed. and we ended up getting a single bed with no one getting are permision. thats only the begining the rooms where not as expected for the price you pay. there was no alarm clocks like most have or no refrigeraters. i couold have gotten more at a cheap hotel. all youre paying for is the conviance. i would have reather payed less somewhere else and drive then to have had this kinda stuff happen. you get more for youre money staying at motel6 and taking a cab.

My wife and I had the oppurtunity to stay this past week-end at the Broadwater Resort. (August 16, 2002) The staff and the facilities were
Top Notch. We always enjoy our stays and have brought friends and family
to the resort. I still remember the resort before the Casinos came to the
coast. However, the President and the Broadwater have alsways been a favorite
of ours. The Casino is the best in my opinion. Its staff and games are great.
Please keep up the TRADITION that you have established. Thanks again.

We stayed at the Presidents Broadwater in June of 2001 and will go again in 2002. The casino was right across the street,as was the beach. This facility has it all and it is affordable. This hotel resort is very family friendly. The setting is very "old southern grace" with all the modern conviences. The only thing wrong with our stay there was tropical storm Allison which made it's appearance while we were there.But I bet they are working on that too.
