I had business in Wagner & Lake Andes. The Fort Randall Casino & Hotel is located right between these two towns, so it was an ideal place to stay. I was alone on this trip, and stayed on a Wednesday night. Currently 1 person/1 room runs $59 per night during the week. I would describe the room as being comparable to a room at a Farfield - nothing too fancy, but nicely appointed, with Native American themed hotel room art. The bathroom was appointed lime that of a Super 8, but it was spotlessly clean. I asked for a non-smoking room
The Casino itself is undergoing an extensive expansion, so there is quite a bit of construction. Those staying during the week received a casino voucher for $10. The casino feathres 3-card poker & blackjack, a poker room, and slot machines. There is a bar and there is a restaurant. Note that these are separate operations, and diners cannot order alcohol in the restaurant.
The restaurant features a dinner buffet and menu items. I ordered a $10 ribeye; the dinner was somewhat pedestrian, but the service was good, and complimentary ice cream was thrown in, which was pleasant.
Overall, I'd say it's a very good value. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a weekend getaway on-the-cheap, or for business in the area.
