We planned our stay with the intent of spending a few hours playing the slots. Won some, lost some, but we had fun.

The casino is very pretty and there are nice views of Lake Michigan. They have a nice buffet Resturant. They have all the slot machines as well as the table games. It was not too smoky like some of them but then we were there on Monday and Tuesday and there weren't a lot of people. Sure wish they would... More

This casino is run by the local Native American Indian tribes. Nice restaurants and casino but since I'm not a gambler, it's good for a "go and see" for me but not an evening event. It seems to have a big draw of people but in my opinion, there is so much more to enjoy while visiting the NorthLands.

We are here now! We came just for the lunch buffet which is huge. Having beef brisket and ham... And it's great! Can't beat the price for 11.00! Not really gamblers but we usually throw 20 bucks in the slots.

Karaoke contest at the ozone club is not worth it. Based on applause, and then when you go to put in a song, the woman ignores you. See, male karaoke hosts are so much better!! Anyway, spend your time and money in the casino, you'll have a lot more fun!! And sing karaoke someplace else, maybe Breakers in mullett lake... More

Before we stopped here I read a lot of reviews about a smokers paradise, but it really wasn't that bad. I'm from southeastern Michigan and the casinos in Detroit are way worse with smoke then here. We stopped to play some slots and had a great time. I recommend for anyway looking for a clean place to gamble

Beautiful casino design on outside. Many of the machines match the seniors that seem to be their biggest customers. I think they could use a outside casino management company to help them loosen up their slots. Betting 40 and winning 5 is not winning. It would be nice if free games on some machines would actually activate once every $20.

Seriously, I was here 2 years ago and enjoyed playing the Michael Jackson Penny Slot and Music Machine. it had a Rock and Roll chair with speakers behind your head and Played some of Michael's biggest hits when you won.

I have been to several casinos in my travels, both in the US and out, and basically there wasn't anything at this one that made it stand out. This disappointed me as it is a relatively new casino. We went late in the evening and found that a lot of the areas were closed. Not really impressed.

It was a very pleasant experience at Odawa. Their staff was very friendly and accomodating. They ran a good and efficient tournament that I played in. Their slot machines were a little dated but there were plenty to choose from. Did not get a chance to eat there.
