After coming to Mille Lacs for over 25 years, I finally get the chance to stay at The Grand Mille Lacs Casino Hotel. It was never my choice but I am really glad I finally did stay here. The hotel price was one of the best I have ever had, Dining was excellant with a variety of restraunts. The rooms... More

After looking forward to taking a few days off for some rest and relaxation, I'm sorry to say it has been a disappointing experience. First, we had to stand in line for about 20 minutes to check-in. I'm fairly patient so this didn't bother me until we had to do it a another time. Luckily, we weren't on any time... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend get-a-way. The beds were so comfortable and the room was very clean. It was a very pleasant experience and with gambling to offer for entertainment. The restaurants were very delicious and the prices reasonable. We will be back.

We just got back from spending 2 nights at the Hotel and the rooms couldn't have been better. We both said it was the kind of room you could easily spend a week in. Everything you could need was there and if anything was missing, the Housekeeper on the 5th floor was more than willing to help you get it.... More

Recently, I was a guest at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs hotel and couldn't have been more pleased with my stay! I was traveling in Central MN, visiting historic monuments and re-visiting places I had been as a child. The hotel was situated convenient to these travels, plus provided me with some night time entertainment options in the connected casino.... More

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
