We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. This hotel allows smoking so it was not a pleasant visit. The room was non-smoking & did not smell but once you hit the lobby it was pretty powerful. The staff was good at the desk but not so friendly I. The restaurant. We will not stay at this location in the... More

I will never be returning to this casino hotel. To start off.....everyone seemed to hate their jobs and were not friendly. We got to our room which I must say was beautiful. We stayed in a king suite but don't believe it was worth $150 a night. Then we went to dinner. The restaurant was empty. We had the crab... More

The room was bigger and more spacious than I expected. Rooms are clean. Not a large selection of tv channels. The attached casino is your typical Indian casino in the middle of nowhere. It is easy to find and not that far from town. It was better than I expected. I would definitely stay here again if I was passing... More

This casino is top notch! The rooms are very nice, clean, beds are too. The front staff is very helpful and the prices of the rooms are sooo reasonable!! The variety of the machines is great as there are a lot of 1 cent machines. The buffet was fantastic and even had crab legs!!

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding. It is a nice hotel, nothing special. Our room was clean and there was a nice note from housekeeping. Rooms are cheap. The hotel is a little ways out of town, I would guess apx 7-10 miles. The food is very good. Resturant staff was great. My biggest problem was the... More

Loved this hotel. We checked in and asked if they had any suites available to upgrade to and the lady at the front desk said they had one available but we would have to pay the extra. That was fine. The rooms are reasonably priced. Very nice room. It has a separate bedroom which works great for us since my... More

We were in town for a wedding and was excited to find a hotel under $90 a night. Dakota Sioux is about 7 miles outside of "town" in a field all of its own. It is clean, little casino with a great breakfast buffet and a fun atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel did not smell like smoke... More
