We greatly enjoyed our recent stay at Fortune Bay...clean and felt more upscale than other casinos. We got a room upgrade to a non smoking room with a small balcony overlooking the 18th hole. Got to enjoy a very beautiful sunset while sitting outside. Quiet, clean and comfy. It didn't feel like a casino and we were very aware of... More

This hotel is tucked away up north in Tower Mn . We where a group of 10 riding motorcycles from Canada . We where all pleasantly surprised with the hotel .

My husband and I went to Fortune Bay from June 27th through the 29th. When I called to make the reservation Leigh was awesome! She was kind, helpful and eager to help as we were just married April 19th and really just wanted our first weekend away as a married couple. We had the King fire place suit room 512... More

Good afternoon: I spoke to our resort manager who will speak to his team member about the poor customer service you experienced. The same discussion will take place with our Tim Hortons team members and our Sunset Steakhouse crew. You are right. Providing customer service is a simple task that we sometimes forget and we apologize for not recognizing the... More

I was extremely impressed the the quality of my stay at Fortune Bay. The rooms are fantastic with great balconies--make sure to request one with a view of the golf course or the lake! The hotel itself is huge, but the casino doesn't seem that big. The casino allows smoking, so the smell is pretty intense, but it is confined... More

We visited the casino and were disappointed. Not that we are 'big spenders' by any stretch but practically all the slots are penny slots, we searched high and low for quarter slots and couldn't find any. That and the fact that entire casino is smoking, no non smoking areas did not make for a positive experience.

Nice, clean rooms, easy check in, and that's about it. The steakhouse dinner is good, but the Tamarack buffet is horrible. The country fried steak is dry, the waffle and French Toast sticks taste like cardboard and the biscuits for the gravy are comparable to rocks. For $10 I could have fed a family of 4 at McDonald's and had... More

Went up there for a snowmobiling trip and it was awesome!! Great trails around the casino and great fishing with a 10 minute drive or 5 minute snowmobile ride. We were able to park the sleds right out front and the hotel rooms were very nice. I would recommend the newly remodeled rooms with a balcony because they tend to... More

Thank you for your review. Once concert tickets go on sale, our rooms sell out rather quickly. Please keep an eye on our website at www.fortunebay.com to see the upcoming summer concert schedule and reserve your room early. We also work with area hotels to provide transportation to and from the concert. Keep in mind that the hotels in our... More
