Stayed here for one night with my husband on 12/26/11. Arrived at about 2 pm, and there was a very long check in line. Decided to go to casino for a little bit first. Casino is very smoky, as are all in MN, but this did seem especially worse as was very crowded and hard to find a seat, let alone one away from smokers. There are non-smoking areas, but they stink too, and didn't have the games I like in them. Casino is fairly large, and I had pretty good luck. We both signed up for players card, and ended up each getting $5 back as well as a free drink ticket each. At about 3 pm decided to try and check in again, line was much smaller and had a 10-15 minute wait. Official check in time is at 4 pm. Stayed in Buffalo tower room 636, the floor was non-smoking. Upon entering room discovered a large 1.5 liter empty orange juice container sitting on bathroom counter. Housekeeping must have forgot to remove, was a little upsetting, but rest of room was clean so decided to stay. Had 2 queen beds, and a view of parking lot. Room also had a flat screen tv, desk, another chair, and a large bathroom. Lots of counter space in bathroom, and good smelling toiletries. Towels were very thin, and scratchy, very dissapointing. Comforters also appeared past there prime, and were scratchy as well. Pillow were fine, did not seem crunchy as other reviewers stated. Slept fairly well, did hear some trains during the night. Not bad for $69 per night. Ate dinner at the buffet, and we really enjoyed. Had donuts and smoothies in the am at coffee shop that were good as well. Casino was a lot emptier in am, so could play almost any machine you wanted. Would go again as enjoyed the casino, as long as had a good deal on room rate, maybe the rooms in Eagle tower are nicer. If smoke really bothers you stay away.
