My family and I stayed there 2 nights and both nights were really nice. The entrance to the hotel is beautiful and updated, and they also have a small Native American exhibit once you walk in. The staff were friendly other than the first person to check us in, she seemed to have a bit of an attitude but nothing... More

stayed at the hotel in july and had a great time. Staff is very friendly. Stayed in a nonsmoking room and did not smell any smoke. Casino is a bit smokey but not as bad as some would say if you do not like the smell of smoke go to a nonsmoking casino there are some. Machines did pay out... More

The moment you walk through the doors the place smells of stale smoke because smoking is allowed in the casino. Check in was a nightmare and took forever. We got there at 1:30pm and finally got our room 4pm. We spent our first night there with no problem. Left after breakfast to go to a wedding and we were gone... More

We stayed here the weekend of July 10th and I was actually surprised as to how quiet it was. The room was a pretty average room and the only downfall was there was no mini fridge which would have been nice for beverages. But the pool are was nice and big. But I thought the staff was pretty friendly.

We walked in on Friday, April 10 at about 2:00pm. We were able to last about 4 minutes. The stench was horrible. My eyes were watering. It seemed like I was walking into a giant ashtray. We did not gamble at all. We walked in, looked around, commented on the unbelievable smell and walked out. Never to return again.

We held our wedding reception here. I cannot state just how impressed we were with the overall hotel, reception hall, food, everything! We had looked around town and picked Northern Lights due to cost. I was unable to tell the difference in quality from the other sites in town that were higher priced. I would absolutely recommend.

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.
