I shouldn't have had high expectations when coming to the Grand Casino but I was disappointed anyway. There are mostly slot machines with very few table games. The biggest problem is the smoke. As smokers have been driven out of most other public places they seem to think that they should go overboard on their disgusting habit here. Expect to... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs on numerous occasions and have always had an excellent time! The hotel rooms are very nice, the food is outstanding and the gaming floor is a ton of fun! We highly recommend the Grand Casino in Mille Lacs!

We stayed two nights for a golfing trip. The staff could not be nicer or more accommodating. The hotel and casino spotless. The room's cleanliness was a 10 out of 10. The price was unbelievable for the quality of the room. The casino is expanding entertainment options to make your stay with children more enjoyable. They include an arcade in... More

Coordinator for a family reunion nearby reserved a block of rooms for us for 2 nights. The prices--$79 and $89-- were fine, considering Frankie Valli was there one of the nights. We didn't eat there, so can't comment on food. Service wasn't so good: you can't book online, they add a $25 damage fee (waived at the end of your... More

We love the casino here. It's not overly smoky. My husband and I love to play blackjack and there were plenty of open tables. The dealers were very friendly. I went on to play penny slots and was able to play for a couple of hours without a huge loss. The casino is also alcohol free.

I recently stayed at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs facility. I went there to see Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons because he was on my bucket list. Overall the stay was great, the room was fine and all of the staff were pleasing and helpful. I took my granddaughter and her friends along, and put them in the arcade... More

Casino and rooms were good. The pool and hot tub are amazing but when you are unable to enjoy a beverage while there, it certainly takes away from a positive guest experience. The connection with Eddys Hotel and Bar is a real plus. We were shuttled to and from the casino by a very courteous driver and with very little... More

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Understaffed at valet and cafe. NO BAR. Agree with Larry that the pay outs seem lacking. I glance at amounts on machines as I walked around and saw few winners. Not enough machines that increase excitement with games that open up to play other games. The ones that do you have to spend a... More

My wife and I drove up to Grand Casino yesterday. We go there a couple times each year for the last ten years or so. After yesterday, we both decided NOT to go back as it is too expensive. Machines have gotten so tight that the fun money is gone in a flash. For us the fun money is about... More

First time up to Grand Casino Mille Lacs and we were so happy with our experience there, every single person we came in contact with were so kind and welcoming. The buffet was amazing, fresh and totally stocked to the brim the entire time. We had a dip in the pool and the hot tub was awesome and relaxing and... More
