Our bill was $13,83 but when we checked the receipt we were charged over $18. The girl appeared very embarrassed that she had been caught. Now that I check the charges on my credit card I was also charged $16 for the same meal. Use cash if you must eat here. The RV park is in the parking lot with... More

It was a nice ride to find this hotel. They plunked down this nice little hotel/casino in the middle of no where. No city in site. So it wasn't hard to find from the freeway. The hotel was very clean and they like veterans. We got a very cheap rate. We were greeted with a big smile --which means a... More

We enjoyed our stay. We received a generous players club offer. The honor the discounted room even on weekends, and that was a huge plus. $30 room! We had some noisy neighbors (Fighting), called security and they were there promptly. Otherwise it was very quiet. Our room was a little dated, but clean. Plenty of towels. Drink service on the...

My fiancé and I stayed here in January 2016. We were just here for a weekend getaway. We checked into our hotel room with ease. The young gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. After we settled in our room we decided to go check out the restaurants. We went to check out the buffet but the... More

The hotel is clean. It's a basic hotel, just to sleep in, price very fair. Casino cozy, good variety of slot machines, barite doers friendly, restaurant staff also very helpful. A good getaway from business in Fargo.

Very nice comfortable beds and complementary water and coffee! But housekeeping doesn't care if you put a sign out that says do not disturb they enter the room anyway. We bought a usb charger for the car and it doesn't even charge anything. Buffet is very expensive.

Casinos in general can be a fun time and as expensive as you let them be. We stayed Sunday 9/6/15 and had a hot tub room at a good value. The staff was all friendly and asked often if we needed anything. The place was pretty clean considering all of the people that go for casino action. The slot machines... More
