Treasure Bay Casino Resort Hotel Review: A Mississippi Gulf Coast setting, complete with legends of scalawags and buccaneers, provides the inspiration for this pirate-themed property. The hotel sits across from Treasure Bay Casino, which is housed Vegas-style in an 18th-century pirate ship and medieval fort. Guests get coupons for the casino and restaurants when they check in, and Silver Crew members (age 50-plus) enjoy benefits that include rate discounts. The décor here is Spanish colonial in style, infused with lots of rich, jewel tones. Themed dining offers the opportunity to take a meal amid purple velvet chairs and leopard-print tabletops. Some tower rooms feature walls of windows overlooking the ship (and beach), while others look down on the two-tiered swimming pool. Additional accommodations include inn-style poolside rooms. The main draw here is entertainment, including karaoke in the Pirate's Den, live music at the casino's Scalawag's Showbar and a full complement of gaming. There is a courtesy shuttle to the casino.
