Have made a couple trips out here with family (brothers are only 19). We have an absolute blast every time. Staff is friendly, and the casino has been pretty kind to me the last couple of times. Long Islands are about $10, so that is nothing to complain about.

Just an ok experience at best. Room was fine nothing special. Had lunch in their sports bar and it wasn't good. Pre cooked chicken breast on a cold bun and burnt deep fried apps. Casino gambling floor was better than average. Casino is in the middle of nowhere so nothing eles to do nearby. Overall nothing to rave about here...

Stayed at the Sun Tower for a large convention. Rooms had most of the basics (but no iron or ironing board!) but pretty outdated. You are attacked by the sights and sounds of the casino as soon as you enter. Meeting rooms are adequate.

Normally I would rate this as 4 stars, but because of the overwhelming cigarette smoke I give it 1 star. They need to fix or upgrade their HVAC make up air ventilation units or install some smoke eaters.. I am not a complainer unless something is EXTREMELY bad. Believe me this smell was bad.The cigarette smell was unbelievable. I heard...

Ceiling was like a drop ceiling in someones basement. Some of the tiles did not fit properly. Hated the soap dispenser in...

Stayed here recently while traveling to Escanaba. Not big gamblers, but thought we might enjoy a bit so booked a room here. The check in experience was, let's say less than ideal. Staff bordered on rude and took far longer to check in than necessary. No one else was waiting and still took at least 15 minutes. Also, the check...

My wife and I visit here and loved it. The people were great, food was good, entertainment was great (a band named Area Code) and the casino floor was fun and laid out well. We had a lot of fun playing Bingo and overall enjoyed our stay. The restaurants were really good (burgers in the 5 Bridges Pub were phenomenal)...

I went to this casino for a concert, and it's the first time seeing Cheap Trick where everyone sat down probably due to comp tickets (not fans of the band). When I checked in I was able to stay in the new tower (Palms) but was told I had to move to the old tower (Sun) and I paid the...

This review is in regard to the hotel portion of this property. When arriving last week for a Friday night show, we were greeted with a 40 minute wait to check in. There were approximately 40 persons in front of us and by the time we reached the front of the line, the line was longer than when we started...
