For a place that advertises blackjack alley we were there midweek mid day and there was one table open. Meh. I was expecting more. It wasn't too smokey and the dealer was very quiet. Not a great blackjack atmosphere.

We stayed in the tower and it was newer and clean. We had a non-smoking room. The casino is a smoking casino so the hotel corridors and the lobbies really smell of smoke. That why i gave it an average rating.

We enjoyed our stay and the beautiful view from the twelfth floor. Room was clean but a little worn. Well worth the value, and it was convenient to the concert venue.

As we have in the past, we stayed at the Black Bear Casino & Hotel the night before going on a fishing charter out of the Duluth harbor. It's 1/2 hr drive from there to the Duluth harbor, which is better than leaving at 1am...More

Most of their employees need to learn some manners. The Cobalt lounge had the rudest bartenders I have ever encountered. I mean EVER. Surly, snappish, just made me wonder how they keep their jobs.
