Reviewed November 9, 2012

We stay here probally 6 to 8 times a year. We live about a 100 miles away so we use it as a get away. We always have excellent service and the rooms are always spotless. We stay here when we see concerts there because its so easy. Just walk down to the concert and when its done your back in your room in 5 minutes or the casino. We enjoy the buffet and the Minnehaha cafe We havent tried the steak house yet. Its a great place to stay to enjoy the twin cities area

Room Tip: They are always running room deals so keep a eye out for them. Plus get a players card at the casino...

Our last stay at mystic was riddled with issues and I have to say, this time was much better. The room was clean, we brought our own water as we still couldn’t find a machine on our floor, and didn’t have any negative encounters with the staff. The beds seemed well put together as they didn’t creek all night like our last stay. Very much more enjoyable, we will be back in November.

Mystic Lake is always a nice treat. The hotel/casino is very well laid out and modern. Not that I have to have a drink, but it would be nice to be able to have a glass of wine with dinner. I am not sure what the reasoning is, but I think they may be promoting having dinner off premises by banning alcohol from the entire place.
The rooms are always nice, the variety of machines and tables on the casino floor is diverse. I have been there many times, never regretted it.

Room Tip: Fun days, but fitful nights. When you are in your room, you have no idea that you are so near a cas...

Everything is pretty First Class in the rooms. Nice fabric, furniture, comfortable beds, plush towels, coffee pots with ceramic mugs, actual glassware (not plastic) triple sheet beds, flat panel lcd, encore movie channels, on demand tv. Beautiful bathroom tiles and marble sinks. Nice large workdesk, pretty views of golf course. Nice heated pool (the best time to swim is between noon and 3pm, or 10-11pm is adult time. Large hot tub, beautiful Spa: massages are a little spendy, but when you can drop that much gambling in 10 minutes, its all relative. For Spa Clients, they have 7-Head Showers(glorious) and beautiful first class locker room with every amenity you could want. This is a smoking hotel and casino. If you do not smoke or cannot stand the smell of smoke, you probably shouldn't go to the casino. They also have more than usual restaurant choices. The Steakhouse is closed Monday and (Tues?) the Cafe is great, the Buffet is pretty standard, plus there is also a Food Court that has 4 different food stands. This is an alcohol-free casino, but that doesn't seem to affect the attendance levels. Gaming floor is ginormous and lots of variety. This is a great get-away for locals, and definately higher class than most hotels in the southern Twin Cities suburbs. Takes about a half hour to arrive from the airport.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Golf Course side

Not that I need to drink, but when you offer a Hotel resort to include gambling and smoking anywhere in the Casino, why would you not allow alcohol anywhere in and on the premises. Seems like an Oxymoron. As you check into the hotel, none says that its alcohol free. When you go past security to the elevators, if you have a cooler or thermos bag of any sort, you are checked.
They do not allow any booze anywhere in the hotel or casino. The restaurants are plentiful, but again no wine with dinner or a cocktail at the bar. There is no bar!
They are so strict about this; they tell you over the phone from your room that you will be asked to leave the hotel if they find any liquor whatsoever, no exceptions.
The hotel is very well laid out with a modern style Casino. The staff is very helpful in and around the premises. The rooms are in need of a makeover and the beds have plastic or rubber undercover in case you…well you know what I mean.
The rooms are not quiet and somewhat noisy near the generators fans by the end of the hall. Any parties going on are quite noisy if it is next to your room. The acoustics are not favorable. The food by the way is good, but I do miss my glass or bottle of wine with dinner. After the second night I ended up going to Arizona’s Restaurant down the street. The hotel was nice enough to shuttle me there. Yes, I had wine with dinner.

Room Tip: don;t sneak in any booze! Demand a quiet room in the middle facign the Golf Course.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent stay at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. Adding alcohol service is the single most frequent request we’ve heard from our guests over the last 20 years. We’ve studied the idea for several years by looking at what other casinos and resorts have done in this area and collected best practices for the safe and responsible service of alcohol. We are currently in the formal process of securing appropriate licensing. Stay tuned: we’ll be sure to update you here and on mysticlake.com when we have more specific timelines.

We checked in and requested a non-smoking room. Got to the room and it reeked of smoke and had ash trays on the table. Called the front desk to complain and they responded "...the room alternates being a smoking and non-smoking room." Come on, there's no such thing as a non-smoking swing room! They gave us another room that had a non-smoking sign on the exterior door. The room was clean, but every spring in the bed was broken. I didn't want to complain again, so we put up with it. But, I will never stay in this hotel again.

The rooms are very clean, the beds are comfortable, and they have flat screen tvs and free wi-fi. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The hotel lobby area is terrific, with a snack bar and a fireplace. There's a small museum room near the check-in counter, as well as a nice gift shop. We always enjoy having breakfast at the Minnehaha Cafe. This is a terrific place to stay if you're visiting Minneapolis/St. Paul for business or pleasure.
