We have been here several times and always book a room in the "tower". This is the newer accommodations, We have always found the rooms clean and comfortable and the check in staff very efficient. There are several good restaurants. Our favourite for breakfast and dinner is the buffet. What a selection of foods - and all delicious!

We like to stop in and we stay a couple of night's and play and eat. We really enjoy the Thursday night Seafood Buffet, crab leg's and more crab leg's. Plus, much more. The breakfast buffet is all way's yummy with much, much to choose from. Good bacon and sausage. Made to order egg's and omlet's. Good service.

The spa room was outdated and frig did not work, The old saying you get what you pay for holds true for this hotel. The buffet was great and wonderful priced. The line to it gets long. Did not like the "preferred line"

Another great stay, always clean comfortable and quiet. The rate is always reasonable, even if you dont like gambling you will probably like the rooms and on site resaurant and buffet. Out of the several times ive stayed over the years i dont recall a bad stay ever.

I stayed here the weekend of grandma's marathon. I paid $200 less per night than anywhere in or close to Duluth, which was definitely worth the extra little bit of driving. I wasn't a huge fan of standing in line for 45 minutes to get into the buffet while "preferred" customers got to skip the line.

Heading home driving from upper Minnesota to Dallas via Minneapolis-St. Paul airport. Only had 45 minutes to spare but had a great time playing the slots! Clean and working were helpful. Easy access off and on the highway. Did not win but...

Being as I was there for a railroad convention, this site was good. Away from the casino, we had a nice location for meetings, and meals. The food for breakfast was good as a buffet, though basically the same but for the meat offering. Our first dinner was fantastic, almost an early Thanksgiving meal. The banquet was very good too...

Stayed with kids and you cannot escape the smoke. This is so dirty and run down with a depressing clientele I have travelled extensively in the developing world and this is pretty gross by any standard. We really couldn't wait to escape to fresh air in the morning as our room had s fetid blend of chlorine and tobacco odor,... More
