this casino needs an update. things are worn. rooms need updating and a good cleaning. it will due in a pinch and the casino is fun. it beats the down town location which is a pit and full of smoke. for the money the indians are making they can do better. we used it as a stop to the north... More

I was reluctant to return to Black Bear after a not so pleasant a few years ago. I am glad I went. Spent 3 enjoyable days at the resort. The front desk attendant, ( Belinda) was very pleasant and accommodating. The Buffet was what I had remembered it as only difference this time was how nice the staff were, last... More

We stayed here the end of August 2014. We rented a tower room. The room was ok but not great. When we got off the elevator someone on the floor was smoking and the entire floor smelled. We complained a few times but nothing was ever done. I would drive the extra 20 minutes to Duluth to get a good... More

I rented 5 rooms in August for my son's wedding reception in Duluth. We were in the poolside suites. The room I stayed in had a terrible smell and filthy stains on the carpet. The furniture was very outdated and dirty. The hotel was full that weekend so we were stuck in the dirty rooms. They were so bad that... More

The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Casino is clean and nice (besides the smell of smoke everywhere). We got a tower king room expecting a good view but it just overlooked a rooftop so we weren't overly happy about that but the room was nice, big and the bed was comfy! The hallways from the elevator to the rooms... More

First of all, the location was ideal for our group. We spent three days there and did not want for anything, Buffet was very tasty,with many fresh choices. They do allow smoking on the gaming floor, so had to steer clear of heavy smokers. The location was ideal for visiting sites in Duluth. I would definitely go there again given... More

My wife, two kids and I, came to the Black Bear and tried to check in at 3:00 PM. We were told to come back and check in 15 minutes. We did this until check in time at 4:00 and then I became a bit frosty. I was asked to come back at 4:15 and after reminding them that check... More

The casino underwent a major renovation a few years back which included building a new hotel tower. The new rooms are excellent and what you would expect of a new hotel. The older section generally has a little bigger rooms and is cheaper. We stayed in a pool side suite for about $100 per night. The room had two queen... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear Casino Resort Hotel this past week. We were tipped off that it was better to get a room in the newer section of the hotel, which we did. Unfortunately the only rooms available in the new section were smoking rooms, and they were pretty smoky. However, we did agree to smoking rooms... More
