“Yuck!”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Not a place I will return for sure. Not sure what I expected being a casino hotel, but it is just a dirty and dated place. The entry is very misleading, once you get to go down the long, dark hallways to your room, well it all will come pretty obvious. Not a clean place from the elevator to the hallways to the rooms. Just make sure you peel back the bed sheets before you decide to sleep...

The Spa on the other hand is really nice...so go to the spa during the day, sleep in a local motel at night.

“They are running a SCAM”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

They refused to honor their promotion for cash-back refund with every 200 points earned on their slot machines. Played for 6 hours and got $0 for all the points I accumulated. The reason? I got too many points!!!!! Bait and switch? Scam? Call it what you may.

“Always a great time....”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

Kootenai River Inn Always a great time. Nice rooms, great food, very friendly staff and if you are lucky you may even win some money in the casino! Just a 5 hour drive from Calgary, we tend to go there at least 5 or 6 times a year, absolutely love it!!

“All in All Satisfied”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

My husband and I and his brother and his wife drove down to this hotel casino for a night away last week. My husband and I had never been there before. The front desk staff was friendly, the rooms are nice and clean and the casino is well stocked with lots of variety in machines for a smaller place. We did have a bad experience in the restaurant with unfriendly staff, but when I filled out the rating sent to me via email I received a call from the Manager who was more than helpful and concerned. He was friendly and advised that he would talk to the staff. The end result being that we were happy with the outcome and would recommend this hotel for a gambling get-away
