Reserved a poolside suite, and therefore expected a nice room that walked out to the pool. What we got instead was a dirty, stained, outdated and very disappointing room. We asked to be moved, and the second room was worse than the first. We will not be staying again--against a Super 8, the Super 8 would take the prize any... More

Definitely not what we expected for the money we paid. We had expected to have a grown up get away at the casino. We even reserved the whirlpool suite which on the website looked amazing. What we actually got was a nonsmoking room with a comforter that had a cigarette hole on it. The view out our window was of... More

I can't comment on the tower rooms. The pics they post online are all of the tower rooms. They look decent. And are obviously newer. We were put in a room in the old hotel part and it was disgusting. Stains and rips in the carpet. The tub and sinks had mold along the caulking. I was scared to walk... More

We recently stayed at this resort and we had a suite room for four adults. When you walked in, you entered a living room with a sofa bed, a sink and bathroom separated the two beds from the rest. Lots of room for the four of us but strange having to brush your teeth in front of everyone. The beds... More

There rooms are discusting, rips in curtains and sheets. Stains in bath tub. And lots of hair on a couple pillows. The deli staff is very crabby and rude, they could use a cleaner to clean up the terrible mess , there is food everywhere , floor, tables, seats and receipts thrown everywhere. . I must say the buffet has... More

If you like to gamble this is the place to go! Nice casino and hotel attached. Staff friendly and no issues with service. Rooms are clean and nice. Would stay again if in the area and it is a quick drive to duluth to visit there also.

The best thing I can say about this is they have a lot of food sources which is good if you have kids. There is the buffet serving all 3 meals, the steakhouse (a little pricey) and the 24 hour deli style serving pizza, burgers, sammies and salads. The buffet has some themes and has a nice selection. The room... More

We just wanted somewhere to stay overnight and Black Bear was excellent. The room was large and well equipped. There was a long line for the dinner buffet, so we went into the bar and had wonderful service from an excellent menu - the waitress put tables together for our party and really took care of us! At check-in we... More

Room in tower was clean with no issues. A bit noisy in the middle of the night with people not being respectfu lof others at 1:30 AM Options for dining could have been better,as there was a long line for the buffet and the only other option was the steak house. Overall a good weekend stay .
