Excellent hotel and casino...The nights stay price included dinner coupons and casino coupons...Excellent dining room... You can eat for nothing and walk away with money in your pocket if your lucky. If you are looking for a place to meet with your friends this is the place!

We stayed on Sept. 21st, after seeing a casino special offering 30 dollars in dining, 20 in free play for 90 dollars. We decided we would give it a try as we were tired of spending over 120 dollars a night in Brookings when we travel to see our kids in collage. Checking in was easy and the room was... More

I stayed here recently while working in the area. I was a bit apprehensive after reading about smokey-smelling rooms. I'm happy to say that my first floor room (near the bend, around the corner from the ice machine) was fine. I didn't notice any sort of smoke smell at all. The free wii-fi worked well, and the bed was comfortable.... More

Stayed at the Royal River Casino & Hotel while attending a High School graduation in the area. We only spent one night, but thought the stay overall was pretty good. We travel world-wide, Japan, Bahrain, Europe, etc. for business and have seen and stayed in all kinds of hotels ... this one rates as a good, clean, but average hotel.... More

When we checked into the motel, the friendly professional desk attendant advised us that if we got new player cards, she could give us a huge discount on our room. We took her advise and saved about $40. And thank you to her. We had tickets to see Williams & Ree (a favorite) and they were spectacular. When we returned... More

I want to give this place the benefit of the doubt because it is clean and it is out in the middle of an area that really does not have any other lodging. The lobby is surprisingly well decorated with a Western/Native American theme and this motif is followed throughout the entire property. The drawback I found is that the... More

I recently spent two nights at the River Royal Casino motel. I traveled to on Flandreau on business, rather than run. It is obvious that the objective of the motel is to get guest to spend time in the casino. My check-in went smoothly and the front desk personnel took time to suggest a local restaurant and provided me with... More

I had a 25th high school reunion to attend in Flandreau, my girlfriends and I decided to make it a girls weekend out and stay overnight at the casino. We requested a non-smoking room when we made the reservation. When we arrived and walked into the hotel lobby we could immediately smell smoke...we asked the girl at the desk to... More

When I called to make reservations all they had left was a smoking room. (I am a nonsmoker and didn't want the odor of smoke in my room or on our clothing) We needed a room and we were lucky to get a room by the sound of things. I asked the lady when making the reservation, if a nonsmoking... More

Stayed two nights at the Royal River Casino and have no complaints. The room was comfortable and clean. The restaurant and the snack bar had good food at inexpensive prices. All the staff we talked to were very friendly and helpful. We actually wanted to stay in Pipestone MN, but the write-ups about the Pipestone MN hotelsmotels were so bad.... More
