I can't review the hotel rooms but the casino is horrendous. Terrible payouts on every machine, and practically have to dodge walkers and canes. Caters to the depression era generation. You can do better in other places. They have the lowest payouts on video poker I have ever seen.Do yourself, and your wallet, a favor and go elsewhere.

Great place to meet up with friends you don't see often. So much to do and great restaurants. The bar so much fun on a Saturday watching the Karaoke, always a good time. We went at boxing day this year and had a blast. Great blend of entertainment, food, pool and shopping near by.

I'm not a smoker, but I really like casinos. Unfortunately the two seem to go hand and hand. I've been a member of their players club there before but didn't get any comps...I guess I'm not a big enough loser :)

The casino is dark and smokey - like many. There's a moderately good mix of machines. There are other MN casinos I like much better (Hinckley, Mille Lacs, and Black Bear).

I had had a bad experience a long time ago but decided to try again and had a fabulous time. Everything was great....concert, room, food and had a blast on the slots (didn't win but it was lots of fun)

We had a few problems with the room, jet tub, maintenance made sure we were well taken care of and had a new room for us within minutes. Food in 2one8 was fabulous, prices were well within the product you received. The clam chowder was flipping awesome, would love to have their recipe. Had a massage and Summer was excellent.... More

Room was awful, overpriced. Show was great, food prices were very high, especially the buffet, did not eat there.
