I enjoy casinos once in awhile so I also enjoyed this one. They had a good selection of games and easy parking. It was very smoky but that's to be expected! I also won a few dollars - that helps!

We were very impressed. Our room was very clean and extremely comfortable. The staff at the snack bar and front desk were very helpful with any questions we had. The casino was clean and well kept. The snack bar offered a wide variety of items, so we didn't have to go to the buffet for a heavy meal. The second... More

This casino for not being that old is disgustingly dirty! Carpet, walls and everything in it is so smoke filled that you want to make sure you wear OLD clothes in it! New chairs were put in a few years ago but there seem to be so many sloppy smokers in this place that they continually burn the chair seats.... More

A fine place to gamble and stay if you are in northern Minnesota. The casino is rather dreary, lacking natural light and filled with cigarette smoke, and some pretty downtrodden people. Go with a group of friends and I am sure you will have a good time though.

The hotel room was OK. The room that we stayed in didn't have thick curtains to keep out the light during the night so it was bright even during the night. The second, third and fourth floors are non-smoking while the fifth floor was smoking. The casino was smoking with non smoking section outside the casino floor in front of... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful at checkin. The room was nice enough, although kinda pricey. We joined the Player's club to get an additional discount on the room..... this is where the nightmare began.Spent the next hour plus bouncing back and forth from one line to another. had to take a pink slip back to the player's club...

I would not recommend this place to anyone! We had nothing but problems from the first 10 minutes we arrived. First off we went for the We-Fest karaoke contest, an event that had been booked there for at least 6+ months. So we arrive on July 4th, there website states the room prices and the discounted prices with a players... More

Caveat: I live in California with access to some really nice casinos so I'm a bit jaded. The casino has a good assortment of slots but many are very, very old, and the odds are rather tight. All in all, a reasonably fun place to visit when in Walker, Minnesota.

The 3 casinos are probably the worst around. The security personal at Northern Lights are top notch. But if your skin isn't the right color forget it you get nothing. The Palace is smokey and dirty. The last time I was there, there was a fight on the floor. Not a place to go.

Unfortunately they had a water main break and had no water just as our bus arrived. We had to be moved (but thankfully we had a wonderful stay at the Country Inn Walker) and shuttled back and forth.
