Two words: BED BUGS. Woke up the first morning after staying there with, probably 20 bug bites. To make a long story short, this was the worst experience I've ever had in a hotel, aside from dealing with getting bed bugs from this dirty place. The front desk(especially the evening shift employees), would not accommodate us after asking to have...

Everyone was super friendly and some of the loosest slots around! It is on the smaller side but have a variety of slots and video poker and tables. Great way to spend the day. It's a little farther of a drive from my house but worth the drive

Went there for a family weekend with the kids and grandkids. They lost one of our reservations and didn't have all the rooms we had reserved. The desk clerk acted as if she couldn't care less. And told my daughter that the lost reservation was my daughters fault because my daughter didn't have a confirmation number with her. We had...

Had a great time. Food is excellent at the Steakhouse. Gambling was profitable. Room was okay. They need to get more recliners so those that need them for sleeping can stay. Only have 2 available. South tower does need sprucing up. Spa is fantastic. Gift shop could be better. Not much of a selection. Buffet is great. Give it 8...

I enjoyed a night at the Meskwaki hotel. The room is clean, bed is comfy and the bathroom is a good size. The casino is fun, but can get pretty smoky (especially on a busy weekend). Friday night buffet, with Prime Rib is worth the $19.99. and the dessert bar has a lot of nice options. The hotel lobby and...

This is a typical/average casino hotel where the majority of the money is spent in the casino, not in the hotel. Still it was fast check in, clean with nice amenities and convenient. I would stay there again.

have stayed at this casino many times. They have a non-smoking tower and also a mixed tower. If you don't smoke, ask for a room in the north tower. The rooms are ok. Most have a refrigerator. Internet is spotty but they have a large selection of TV channels. The casino is very nice. Smoky but they do have non-smoking...

Meskwaki used to be a quick, comfortable weekend getaway but "times they be a changing". I shouldn't really complain since it was a "prize" won at the State Fair which gave us a free room and $20 slot play. SO, I'll divide my comments. CASINO: PROs ~ the casino was clean, plentiful machines, and free beverages available. CONs ~SMOKEY!!!!!! We...

This place no longer knows what hospitality is. Sandy, the supervisor of the casino Club, said the hotel desk people don't know what they are doing. The hotel desk people said they have problems with the Club people. I really don't care; just don't share your problems with the customer. When I stayed here a month ago, there were no...

If you are spending the night I hope you like broken down old beds, and flat pillows. If you end up in the smoking wing (as we did since our non-smoking handicapped room was 'broken') you will gag from the smell. Also the smoking wing is older, and not taken care of at all. Wallpaper is peeling everywhere and carpets...
