Friendly midwest casino

It's probably what you expect for a casino out amongst the farmland. The dealers were friendly. They only had one table game going around noon (to give an idea of the low volume... read more

This was our second time while visiting from Texas. Staff was helpful. Slots were varied and a lot of fun. Easy to understand how to play and something for everyone's price range! Will be back next year!!

It's probably what you expect for a casino out amongst the farmland. The dealers were friendly. They only had one table game going around noon (to give an idea of the low volume that time of day). It was the first casino I've ever been in that didn't have anyone coming around to offer soft drinks. The overall inside seems... More

we went here for breakfast we did not gamble or stay in the hotel the hotel and casino are very smoky and that made it hard for me to breath. The buffet was large and with way more options than I can try. good solid food to either put you back to sleep or carry you through the day

We stayed 2 nights for a family reunion. We had a suite and it was neat and clean. No smoke smells. My husband had fun gambling!

Small casino. Lots of old games and some newer, fancier games. The casino seemed rather clean. The staff wasn't overly friendly. A nice place to stop and waste an hour or two.

Simple parking lot with electric and water. Open area with not shade. Site was asphalt and level. WIFI didn't work and cable was not good had better local channels. Casino is a walk away and was not crowed.

Room was clean, good TV choice, 39 per night but big occupancy tax. Good breakfast and evening buffet, reasonable price. We will return. Slots were slots!

What a dumpy, dirty casino. We've been to a lot of casinos and this one is by far the dirtiest. Employees seemed to not want to do any cleaning, not very friendly either. This is a very small casino, hard to get down aisles when machines are being played. We both said we would never go back.

We stayed here for the second time in the last couple of years, when we visit our daughters who go to school in Brookings. Rather then paying $120.00 or more for a room in Brookings we choose to stay at the casino. Rooms are always clean and this trip they modernized with new flat screen tv's. The trip into Brookings...
