“A GREAT DAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We have visited before and this trip was just as good. restaurant was busy but food good and we had a table at the winning line.
The staff are friendly and could not do enough..........if you are in the area it is worth a visit.

“a day at the races”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This property gives very good rates to horsemen & players. We found this Holiday Inn Express to be clean, a good value and a property we will use again. Great rates, first class accomodations and a free hot breakfast. Its a winner!

“A great family experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The folks at TBD really know how to do it right. Being a horseman, I've seen quite a few grand stands in my day and the Downs do a great job of keeping the people coming through the doors. Lots of free stuff, kids day on Sundays with pony rides etc. Food is decent for a racetrack too! The only thing missing is a playground like the one they have at Canterbury Park in Shakopee.

“Great day at the races”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Great way to spend an occasional day. Can go stand right at the finish line. Beautiful horses less than 5 ft away. Clean, decent food, and if you limit your amount to bet an inexpensive day of entertainment
