When I first got to the hotel, I was a little bit confused. I had a hard time locating the entrance. The bellman was a well-mannered young man. The ladies at the front desk were very polite and friendly. Not to mention gorgeous. They have a fantastic casino. The buffet was GREAT! I really enjoyed my stay with Dakota Magic. I will be returning.

We received great service from the Hotel and the Casino. All the employees are very pleasant and welcoming to us. Even to the unruly customers we seen and heard. When we walked up to the hotel front desk all the clerks stood and greated us with friendly smiles. Very pleasant experience all around. We will definitely be returning to the Casino and staying and the Hotel in the near future. We recommend the Casino and the Hotel to anyone who is looking for a fun and joyable stay. I also recommed the you do take your confirmation number with you. At your next visit remember to tell the hotel they do need additional rooms. Because the Hotel is sooo nice that they are booked up practically every weekend!

Make sure you get your confirmation number and make them read you back your reservation!!! We had problems checking in because they could not find our name nor reservervation. We did not have the confirmation # with us and therefore it was "our fault" and the rude woman behind the counter was very clear to tell us that they give us the number for a reason. After she did find us a room even though they were "sold out".. it had two double beds when we had booked and wanted a King she told us to "take it or leave it". We took it. When we got home we found our confirmation number and called the hotel immediatley. They told us the reservation was for a date in July and it was cancelled on that date at 1201 am. We didn't make our reservation until August for an August stay. Obviously this was their error and it's a shame we didn't have the number with us as it would have been satisfiying to wipe the smug look off of the rude womans face. We do have a phone call and an email into the Hotel Manager.
The entire hotel smells like smoke - even in the non smoking rooms. The bed is comfy but the pillows were terrible. The room was clean. The resturaunt choices are decent and the service in in the resturaunts wasgreat. However, service in the lounge is bad - make sure you get the drink you order or better yet - go the bar and get it yourself. The band playing was wonderful!
If you must go to this area - it's the only hotel around so you have to take it or leave it!
