iPad I recently flew back to Minnesota to spend time with family. An overnight visit to Fortune Bay Casino was on our must do list. Upon arrival the front desk, and Alton in particular, couldn't have been more accommodating. The rooms were spacious and we all commented on what good nights sleep we had gotten on the comfortable beds. We... More

I took advantage of a free room from the casino. I was met at the front desk by 2 very friendly people and check in was fast and helpful. I went up to the standard room by the housekeeping quarters. I expected a lot of noise, however to my surprise this proved to be false! The bed is so comfortable!... More

Sadly for the staff at the front desk(very kind) the room was very dirty. The bathroom was atrocious. There was a moldy corner in the shower along with hair on the floor and in the tub. The walls of the shower had hair and were not washed. The counter in the bathroom was full of toothpaste spots from a previous... More

This place is simply awesome. Everything was first class; the staff, the room, outstanding live entertainment, super clean - even the pool area sparkled. Several restaurants were available for all price ranges. We felt at home the minute we walked through the door, the fireplace and décor were just beautiful. We had a wonderful time and would come back again.

Stayed here with a group of old friends from college for a golfing weekend. The rooms were very nice with a fridge and microwave in each. Quiet for sleeping and the thermostat kept the room comfortable. The attached casino was a little smoky from cigarettes, but it was nice. Plenty of new slot machines and a fair selection of table...
