The hotel is clean. It's a basic hotel, just to sleep in, price very fair. Casino cozy, good variety of slot machines, barite doers friendly, restaurant staff also very helpful. A good getaway from business in Fargo.

Very nice comfortable beds and complementary water and coffee! But housekeeping doesn't care if you put a sign out that says do not disturb they enter the room anyway. We bought a usb charger for the car and it doesn't even charge anything. Buffet is very expensive.

Casinos in general can be a fun time and as expensive as you let them be. We stayed Sunday 9/6/15 and had a hot tub room at a good value. The staff was all friendly and asked often if we needed anything. The place was pretty clean considering all of the people that go for casino action. The slot machines... More

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
