This hotel is not designed to keep you in the hotel. They want you in the casino losing money. As a result, the hotel is bland, in need of a makeover and quiet. Unlike Vegas, the Grand Casino is a day trip destination with precious little to offer outside of the casino. Most stays are single night stays. Staying a... More

I loved just about everything about this hotel. The staff was wonderful at check in. The room was clean, beautifully furnished, nice tv, very comfortable bed, nice appliances, nice shower... almost perfect, especially considering the extremely low price. (which was even lower when factoring in the free play monies awarded to us as first time players in the casino) I... More

We stayed on a Sunday night. When we checked in we got to choose what floor we stayed on. I picked the first floor and we were literally 150ft from the casino, no elevators or stairs to deal with. The pool is huge and so is the hot tub. Great price too, they offered us to stay a second night... More

1st time to Mille Lacs and for the extra drive it did not disappoint. Went here instead of Hinckley for a non smoking room choice. Now the positives are: Close to a movie theatre, big swimming pool, awesome jacuzzi pool, the kids loved the ice cream shop, clean rooms, and excellent restaurant. Northern Grill has great options. I would skip... More

I really loved the coffee makers-the new bedding and beds-even new alarm clocks. It just keeps getting better and better! Rooms were very clean and I was impressed Mille Lacs Lake is a very busy area over the 4th of July so traffic was tight but as soon as we hit the four lane it was good going.. Fishing and... More

Need to get with the rest of the businesses in the state and get rid of smoking. Casino and staff do nothing to discourage this. The small non smoking area is small enough to be considered irrelevant and depsite the non smoking signage many people ignore it. Not tomention most people will sit down next to you and light up...

We began our experience at Grand Casino Mille Lacs with a rude receptionist (Angelle) and so were less than impressed right off the bat. Once we got to our room it was nice enough except the table in the room had some of the trim ripped off of it, a simple fix, turn the table around (it just looked tacky).... More
