My room at the Northern Lights Hotel and Casino was pretty average -- about the same quality of a Sleep Inn or something of that sort. My two double bed room was okay, though my request for a nonsmoking room was not honored. Shower curtain never stayed in place, creating a pool of water in my bathroom every time. Wifi... More

Very clean and the hotel is decorated nice. However the buffet was mediocre at best and the casino is small and smoky. The bar did have a small band which was nice to listen to. We just expected more.

Very pleased with our overnight stay at Northern Lights. Our room was nicely decorated, very clean and quiet. My one suggestions is to eliminate the bedspreads as many hotels are doing; however, the bedding was very clean and we were pleased (sister is a former housekeeper... she knows clean!). Staff was pleasant and friendly. we had breakfast in the Dancing... More

I booked a suite, one of the pricier rooms for 1 night during Moondance Jam. We arrived at 1 p.m., not realizing that check in was 4 p/m. (I've never stayed anywhere with such a late check in) We were told the room was not clean yet, check back in an hour. I checked back every 1/2 until 4 p.m.... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone! We had nothing but problems from the first 10 minutes we arrived. First off we went for the We-Fest karaoke contest, an event that had been booked there for at least 6+ months. So we arrive on July 4th, there website states the room prices and the discounted prices with a players... More

We stopped here on our motorcycle trip. The hotel has designated motorcycle parking which is next to the entrance and protected from the weather. The hotel rooms were comfortable and clean. the buffet ok and the staff was very nice. The room were very reasonably priced.

I liked this casino as it had a Convenience store and a bottle shop. The snack bar was very good and you got big servings. The only problem I had with this hotel was that it did not have a fridge other than that the room was good. I would go there again.

My family and I went to the casino to gamble and have dinner. We are from out of town, so this was our first time here. Right away I sat down at a machine and started winning. The moment my machine started paying, I had either security, or a casino employee standing behind my sister and I; most of the... More

Northern Lights was the venue for a meeting I needed to attend, so I did not pay much attention to some of the negative reviews. I was committed in any case. I'm not a casino-goer, so I can't say anything about that part of the facility beyond the fact that the slots and tables seemed busy the couple of times... More
