“Great stay!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

The property is much nicer than I expected. Room was clean and decorated nicely. Pool area was very large with a neat rock hot tub. Casino was very smoky as they all are. We had pizza from the deli area and it was delicious. Overall staff was polite but didn't go out of their way. We will definately stay again.

All the staff except for some of the snooty "grand rewards" clerks are really pleasant and very nice. They say hi to you whenever you walk by and always ask if there is something they can do for you with a smile. The rooms have been remodeled recently. Very comfy and clean and hugh tvs. The buffet is nothing fancy but the food is hot and fresh. We have found that food in all the venues is great. The deli has great hot sandwiches,chili and super big ice cream cones or sundaes. The grand grill has a wonderful walleye breakfast. The wait staff in the buffet, deli and grand grill are exceptional. Just across the parking lot is a brand new movie theater. It is nice to take a short walk to the show in the evening. They play all the up to date movies.

Room Tip: with two sets of elevators it is easy to get confused and get turned around

The hotel staff were pleasant and accommodating. The room was well-kept, the amenities were very nice. I would make a return trip to this hotel any time. The fact that it was attached to the casino, was an added plus. While not a big gambler, I do have a Rewards Card and, as such, had received a birthday coupon for a $10 overnight stay. Who could resist checking it out! I am particularly impressed by the towels (I hate paper thin towels that are fraying and tattered). None of that here! The room had a king sized bed and a mini fridge. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. It seemed first-class to me.

Room Tip: Our room was in the "tower" wing and was advised by the check-in desk that those were a bi...

Came here in June 2011 to stay over night with the hubby and kids. Amazing pool area and amazing chicken wild rice soup in the cafe area. The hotel staff is a little rude. It would not keep me from coming here, they just don't seem very welcoming & are not exactly 'people pleasing'. I have heard that many times though with an Indian casino ( not trying to be insulting, as I have had many many positive experiences at TI and Grand Casino Hinckley). There is not any alcohol allowed in the casino area but they do let you bring it to your room. I also drink a mixed beverage out of a water bottle in the casino area and no one said anything to me. Over all was a nice experience and would go back.

We were looking for a nice clean room and a little fun at the casino. That is exactly what we got and at a very good price. We have a rewards card and it saved us money on the room and also on dining. We ate at the Grill and it was reasonable and tasty. We will be going back. The casino is much like any other casino.

Room Tip: Get the Rewards card and save a little money!
