All the usual, no big winners. Friendly staff. Small place but the food was good. Very good place to meet relatives/friends at. Easy to get to. Nothing else to do around that area. Pretty flat land. Off the freeway at the North Dakota/Sough Dakota border.

I haven't been for a long time and this stop made me remember why. I tried several machines, turned light on to get service and no help. I thought the ventilation was poor and just didn't enjoy the experience. No one I saw looked any more pleased.

We stayed here for a wedding in Wheaton, Mn. Rooms were clean and satisfactory. Casino is very smokey but nice. We ate at the restaurant near the buffet and it was ok. The accommodations worked out fine for us. We would stay here again if in the area.

This hotel was average. Service was good. The staff sent my food from the restaurant to my room for me. I did give a tip and the staff appreciated it! This was a business trip. So I had to drive about 35 miles each day and was quite tired. The food also tasted good! The room was not as nice... More

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
