The motorcycle ride there on Hwy 1 from Hwy 61 was great,nice scenery. That was the highlight of the trip. Staff were great but the hotel room was very small,the beds were hard and air conditioner was very noisy. Had booked two nights but cancelled the second night for that reason. We gambled but the casino was very smokey and... More

I have not been to Fortune bay for a while now, but I have been there many times, especially with the excellent perks they used to have, and I'm sure still do have for free rooms etc. My experience over the years with fortune bay has been a good one.

Our Beta Sigma Phi Sorority had convention 9-19, 20 & 23-2014. Food was amazing--rooms excellent. Kept busy, didn't get to pool, but was told it was very nice. Grounds were well kept up. Employees friendly and courteous. Wait staff served 170 and the food I had was hot.

The smell of the pines is wonderful. I could find nothing wrong with any part of this resort. It is located on one of Minnesota's biggest and most beautiful... More

The bad: I've stayed in a number of hotels but this was the worst. I am sure this hotel has some good rooms but 230 was disgusting. There comes a time when a room does not meet the least of expectations. The smoke smell was over powering and the window screens had quarter size holes to let the fresh air... More

This property is very senic. I'm guessing the rooms that look out over the lake have great views. We had one of the rooms without a view but the room was a nice size and clean. We walked down to the lake. Nice view and a cool breeze. Our main objective was golf and food. This place fit the bill... More
