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

Check in was fine, rooms are average, plenty noisy and smoke smell filled the motel area. Our room had a hole in the wall from someone who had previously stayed there apparently opened the bathroom door to hard. We went to Bill Engvall great show. 25 mins before the show I stood in line for a beverage, they had 3... More

Decided to get out of town for a night and went to the casino. Dinner in the cafe next to the buffet is good. The staff is quick and the prices are decent. As a former smoker it is nice that they have a non-smoking room, however beverage service in there is very slow and the space isn't very big.... More

The rooms is clean, the food is alright. However, some of the casino staff is standoff ish and rude. The two nice people were at the hotel check in and the players club. They don't really do a lot for holiday fun and specials.

I was passing through and decided to stop in Dakota Magic casino. The casinos I have seen in the area are, as expected, small unexciting establishments. Dakota however is a bit bigger, nicer and flashier. Like any casino it is smoky inside. I can't take away too much for that as it is the norm. The staff was very friendly.... More
