Only went to this place for an event so no choice where to stay. When checking in the clerk never explained where our room was and where the best place to park was so it was a challenge to find it ourselves. The room was ok but everything needs a good renovation in the "new" section. Unless there was another... More

Travelled with a bus tour in April for a 2 night stay. Casino and restaurants were what I expected. It's a Casino after all. There is a smoke free section in the casino but quite smokey overall. We stayed in the Stardust section of the hotel. Our first wasn't great because we kept being awoken to the strong scent of... More

Stayed at STC a few weeks ago. Our room was clean and comfortable - but not even remotely close to any slight bit of luxury. Hotel is no-frills. The casino is so smoky you feel as though your eyes received a shot of pepper spray. Your clothes stink all day. If you're going to allow smoking in the casino -... More

Room was good, microwave and refridge, beds comfortable. Telephone and a light didn't work in the room. They fixed it after first night. Wasn't real crazy about the soap dispensers in the room instead of small bottles. Rooms had a keurig single coffee maker. Can be a long walk to casino and restaurants.

We recently spent 3 nights in an average room (2 double beds) and I have to say that many of the reviews on TA regarding the Shooting Star Casino Hotel are a little on the mean side. In fact, since we had not been here before, I read the reviews and told my wife to be prepared for a not... More

My eighty-one year old mother and I stayed at the Shooting Star Casino & Hotel in Mahnomen, Minnesota for two nights starting on Saturday, February 14th, 2015. When making our reservations online, we requested a room on the top floor, away from any noise, and we were given a Deluxe room on the first (basement) floor of the Main Lodge... More

We have stayed here often, as part of a casino tour package. The hotel consists of an older section and a new one (Stardust), but the new one is over a decade old now. Still, the rooms always are clean and in good shape. The pool and hot tub are large and, during the day are quiet. However, many of... More

Stayed here for a family event. I came 900 miles and was excited for my stay. The room was clean however extremely dated and in need of some general upkeep. It was a non smoking room however it was very obvious that it had not been in the past. Bed was comfy & shower was hot but couldn't understand the... More

I've been to this hotel multiple times and generally enjoyed my stay. However the past two visits an annoying thing happened. Both times, in the middle of the night, the soap dispenser in the washroom fell off the wall. The first time is was the one that was in the shower, dispensing body wash and shampoo. It fell down into... More
