Difficult time finding our rooms.

Very disapointing, we should have got a map to find our room, lots of walking,especially with a handicap person. We needed to take more than one elevator to find our floor,I will... read more

Had received two coupons one for staying one for buffet. Both did not have any expiration date info on them. So when I decided to use the buffet coupon on the night of our second stay I was told it had expired. I showed the person that there is no expiration date on this coupon and in fact it said... More

Went for one afternoon and night with friends. The accomodations were really nice and cheap. The bonuses they give you for registering at the casino really are worthwhile. We got our room for $44.95 for the night. Credits for dining and the casino as well. this was our first time staying at a casino motel, but we found it worthwhile... More

Very disapointing, we should have got a map to find our room, lots of walking,especially with a handicap person. We needed to take more than one elevator to find our floor,I will say I have never stayed in a hotel like this before. Rooms were small but clean. I don't believe we will be back.

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 travel every year, in September, to the Shooting Star on a shopping/casino trip with a large group of girlfriends. I have reviewed this place in the past and my number one concern was the cigarette smoke. This year we found wonderful updated bedrooms with fridges and microwaves. The new touches were not unnoticed. However the cigarette smoke in the... More

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).
