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

Took a motorcycle trip from Minnesota and decided to head to a casino that was not too far away and had a hotel, restaurants and pool. Drove up and for being in a very small town and no signs pointing to it from main street, it was a pretty large complex with huge parking lots. We checked in... breeze... and... More

Very pleased with my room. at the Royal River Casino. I stayed during the week, and the rate was $50/nite for a large, nicely-furnished, very clean room. I will agree with a previous poster that the buffet didn't look too appetizing. It appeared similiar to an Old Country Buffet, which is not a compliment. I am glad I had a... More

We had a family gathering in Pipestone, MN and decided to check out the Royal River instead of staying at the Super 8 in Pipestone like we normally do. That Super 8 is bad. All in all, the Royal River was good enough. It is a 3 story hotel connected to the casino. The lobby is nice, with big leather... More
