Spent one night in the Dakota magic hotel. Check in was quick. Finding the room was not. No map shown to me or provided. Wandered outside looking for an entrance until I found an open door. The door to hotel security! At least we got in. Room was dated. Beds were ok. Shower was ok. Ac was cold but noisy....

I have visited 2 times within the last 6 months. The first time we ate in the casino restaurant. Not a good choice; I think fast food take out would have been a better choice. Although the service was great! The casino on this night was very, very smoky! My second visit, we did not eat at the casino. It...

The casino is very small compared to what we are used to but it's got a mix of games that keeps us coming back. The service is a little lacking for drinks and there are only a few good dealers. This place isn't anything fancy but worth a stop if driving by.

A poor experience from the start. The website lacks specifics and NO ONLINE BOOKING!!!! the parking areas are far from any easy entrance. Housekeeping is faulty​. Bathroom/toilet dirty and hair in the sheets. The room had no map of the facility, list of amenities, or numbers (for front desk, restaurants, etc). The food was decent but I saw lack of...

We ride up on AJ's Casino bus and it's a great retreat. It's a short trip and we'll worth it. We always enjoy the buffet. And when you take the bus up you definitely get rewarded. You get to relax and leave the driving to someone else.

Stayed here on a Thursday night, they had a great deal on rooms if you signed up for a players card the room would be $30! Plus we received $10 to play with! The casino had a good variety of games and a pretty good crowd for a Thursday night. It was a bit smoky in the casino, but the...

Bad winter storm forced us nonstop prematurely at Dakota Magic. Room was very well priced, very clean. Signed up for casino card and received $]coupon for buffet and $15 gambling cash, plus seniors coupons for meal and slot play. Room was large, food was good if not fantastic. Staff was great. Would recommend stopping by for a day or so,...

Decided one time to come here cause shooting star in Mahnomen was all booked. I'm so glad we came here! We have stayed 4 times since April, and are staying again this weekend! We've only eaten at the buffet twice, & it wasn't bad, but I've had better. Never tried the other places. The bar prices I think are very...

All the usual, no big winners. Friendly staff. Small place but the food was good. Very good place to meet relatives/friends at. Easy to get to. Nothing else to do around that area. Pretty flat land. Off the freeway at the North Dakota/Sough Dakota border.

I haven't been for a long time and this stop made me remember why. I tried several machines, turned light on to get service and no help. I thought the ventilation was poor and just didn't enjoy the experience. No one I saw looked any more pleased.

“They have reasonable rates on standard rooms and for a few bucks more you can get the hot tub room with a fridge. That's the way to go!”
