The hotel at the casino is undergoing some major renovations. The rooms on one side of the hotel are being completely redone. When those rooms are done, the other side will be done. So during the renovation period, many rooms will not be available. I suggest you make reservations in advance to ensure you get a room. We were unaware... More

The facility is under significant remodeling, which is needed. Dining room leaves A LOT to be desired. Smells badly of tobacco smoke. Menu says ask server about gluten free options....but server seemed to know little on subject. Unless you really need gaming, you have many better options.

If you're looking to escape for serenity and silence, punctuated only by waves and birdsong along the shore of Lake Superior, Hollow Rock is the place. Although the "2 night" minimum is in effect, much like cabins around Grand Marais MN, the price is much lower. The cabins are well crafted, clean and very comfortable. Bring DVD's if you need...

We stayed at the Hollow Rock Resort, which is run by the Grand Portage Lodge. The cabin we stayed in was #5, Moose, which is on the end of the peninsula and surrounded on three sides by Lake Superior...you couldn't ask for a nicer view. The cabin was very clean and well arranged, so despite the smaller size, it felt... More

The rooms were clean and had every amenity we could've expected. The beds were more than comfortable! There is a restaurant next door (nothing to write home about) which is very convenient based on location. And free casino money for a little night time entertainment. We enjoyed our quaint stay at the casino.

If you call in person to book a room, be ready to say "excuse me, could you repeat that?". I understand that the place is understaffed, however when I called to make a reservation, the person on the other end barely spoke above a whisper, and in very poor English. She might as well have been saying.."yeah,yeah,yeah...whatta ya want?!". She... More

We thought we were going to a town when going to Grand Portage, only to find out that the Casino is the only place to eat & sleep. Our room was very comfortable, clean & quiet. The price was average at $95.00 a night. After checking into our room, we went to the restaurant in the casino. It took forever... More

I would recommend buying the Wisdom card for $20 because there is a lot of savings on the card. Room rates really change depending on a weekend and a week day. The rooms were adequate with a coffee maker and a small refrigerator. We ate at the Island restaurant on a quiet Sunday night. It took the hostess 10 minutes... More

I chose to go to the Island View Restaurant within the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino for lunch today. I was incredibly disappointed by my experience at this restaurant. The service was terrible. It took 15 minutes after being seated at a table for a server to come by. She did not apologize for the wait, and was very abrupt... More
