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.

We stayed here for a wedding in Wheaton, Mn. Rooms were clean and satisfactory. Casino is very smokey but nice. We ate at the restaurant near the buffet and it was ok. The accommodations worked out fine for us. We would stay here again if in the area.

This hotel was average. Service was good. The staff sent my food from the restaurant to my room for me. I did give a tip and the staff appreciated it! This was a business trip. So I had to drive about 35 miles each day and was quite tired. The food also tasted good! The room was not as nice...

Our bill was $13,83 but when we checked the receipt we were charged over $18. The girl appeared very embarrassed that she had been caught. Now that I check the charges on my credit card I was also charged $16 for the same meal. Use cash if you must eat here. The RV park is in the parking lot with...
