I stayed here on my way to visit family in MN. I enjoy playing blackjack so figured I would get some entertainment. The dealers were friendly. I was tired so I decided to go to my room and watch NFL football. I had been watching it on the tv in the players area. When I could not find it on... More

I stayed here for business in a junior suite. I could not believe how sleek the entire hotel was. My room was very luxurious. It is neat how they have sliding doors on the bathroom and bedroom. The cost of a suite was offset by being able to bring in breakfast foods from a nearby Walmart. I would bring my... More

This is a nice hotel. We stayed in a king suite. There were two rooms--one room with a king bed and one room with a pull-out couch. There was also a microwave and a small refrigerator. The room was very quiet, especially considering it is located near the interstate. The hotel is connected to the casino through an enclosed walkway.

I was here for a special occasion over a long weekend. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and smoke free the rooms were. With the smoke filled casino attached, I figured they'd have smoking rooms and chain smoking rooms but I was very wrong. Each room was very nice, with a great bed, nice tv and not even a... More

We stayed at Prairie Meadows while visiting family over Thanksgiving. Was pleasantly surprised and very thankful for such a nice stay. Beautiful rooms and polite employees are worth every penny. Will stop again on our next visit!

First impressions mean everything and walking into the lobby, tastefully decorated for the holidays, filled the bill! We were pleasantly surprised by the room accommodations, size of the casino, and the impressive the convention area. Made me wish we were there for a convention! We spend a lot of time in hotels and our expectations are high...this one checked all... More

My husband & I had a great overnight stay in this hotel/ casino. The lobby decor is so beautiful. We were in town for for a reception held on one of their banquet rooms. We had a great dinner considering there were 400 or so guests. The steak was so tender & delicious. Waitstaff was very professional and courteous. Our... More

We were here for an event. The decor is trendy. There is a nice bar in the lobby area. The rooms are nice with that minimalistic feel-like many of the Vegas hotels. Bathroom a bit tight, but had nice amenities. The only room for improvement is that the bed wasn't too comfy. But if you like a harder mattress you... More
