The casino host is awesome. First time I actually felt like my visit was appreciated at a casino. The bar staffe, the restaurant servers and the hotel folks were wonderful too. Then to have a beautiful room with a balcony that gave us a view of the lake was icing on the cake! Definitely will return!!

My room was comfortable and reasonably priced. I can recommend the hotel. If you enjoy good food, not so much. Unfortunately, as the resort is somewhat isolated, there sure no immediate alternatives. There are a lot of family activities available in addition to the gambling.

hotel is pretty good. New additions are nicer than the rooms in the original older section. Staff was very accommodating and very helpful. Only issue was front desk staff didnt seem to know anything about business center or how to use it. Good food.

We also signed up for a new player card at the casino so received two free buffets. The buffet was alright, dinner included deep fried shrimp, ham, and ribs, offering...

I stayed in this hotel during the Arrowhead 135 race and my room was overlooking the finish line. The room was really set up nicely with a queen bed in one room and a murphy bed and couch in the other. There was even an out of the way place to set up a portable crib.
