So dissatisfied with the hotel we never stay there anymore. But the worst is what has happened over the years to the casino. Eight or ten years back you used to go there and actually get some payback on the slots. Occasionally you would even hit a decent jackpot, now it is non existent. Back when they had to old... More

I have never had such terrible customer service in my life. It started in the Casino and went no further than that. LONG story short - in June I was promised meals as a comp for my birthday. I was told to call when we got there, which I did. The supervisor "Dawn" said that she would take care of... More

I travel by DM every Thursday. Often I stop between 5-7 PM for their buffet. It has an excellent variety at a value price, I have never been disappointed. Staff is friendly enough, though you don't really interact with them alot. Only meals...as I am wise enough to generally stay away from slots.

Only suites were available on a Sat night. All other rooms were sold out. Suite was spacious, clean and quiet! We won enough in the casino to cover the cost of the room. The slots payout very well. Several people were winning. The casino is small. Since it was our anniversary month, we got 2 free buffets. (One per player... More

Terrible machine payouts- put $$thousands into a machine and maybe get $100 back. They are crooks- rooms are filthy- staff is rude- it's hard to get any worse than this place - what a joke. They make you pay for your beer when playing at a machine before they even bring it to you- tacky

First off we had a party of 18 people golfing on the golf course and they almost did not let us golf because of a newly applied dress code. After we got on the course we noticed that there was several people on the course that did not meet this dress code and a little later in the day we... More

Below is an message which I have unsuccessfully tried to send to DM because they do not apparently have email addresses made available to the public: To whom it may concern: Allow me to express my extreme displeasure at the terrible customer service I received at your casino yesterday. There were multiple instances of rude, dismissive behavior which I found... More

We had read reviews of HARD beds and almost did not attend this site because of that. However, our favorite comedian Bill Engvald was performing and we decided to make the trip to see him. I called ahead and was informed that the hotel had put "pillow top" covers on the beds. Well folks pillow top covers are not the... More
