Hotel check in was wonderful with Peggy being very helpful and friendly. The room was on the second floor near the pool and was nicely appointed with a large tv, Keurig coffee maker, tiled shower and comfortable beds. The noise level was louder than expected due to kids running in the halls and loud televisions in adjoining rooms lead me...

I stayed here the past two nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was super friendly. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Had fun playing the tables for the first time. The dealers were very nice and great at explaining things to me. The only thing I didn't like was the restaurant. Waiter was slow and didn't seem to...

Nice native owned casino. They normally have a $110 plus $80 in free play per night promotion. Weekends area crazy busy. Highly recommend staying on weekdays. Convenience store across the street. Kind of in the middle of nowhere. Nice pool and hot tub area. Smaller café and bar food type pub. No weekday buffets. Good place to check in and...

I've stayed at this hotel many times and did alright at the casino until this year. I don't know if they have someone else running the casino floor or what happened but its not what it used to be.

Average, medium size to small well kept casino but payouts are bad. Lost $1800 in one machine, would not hit anything. Never went back. Good selection of games. Good food. The rewards program is better than some casinos.

This is a very nice casino and the hotel rooms are very comfortable and well decorated. We enjoyed the bars and gaming. They have hotel gaming packages that made us want to stay here. If you like to gamble, it's a good deal. Glad we stayed here.

Very friendly staff. Resturants were good, not fancy. Open feeling, nothing private or intimate. The staff seemed nice, maybe a bit newer, little things needed to be asked for, someone with more experiance would just know to bring condiments with the food. The food was on the high end for pricing (considering it is in the middle of nowhere). Clean...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Potawatomi Carter Casino Hotel, situated in scenic Forest County, offers guests the best of both indoor and outdoor entertainment. Surrounded by hundreds of miles of snowmobile and ATV trails, guests can hit the trails for an afternoon of riding and sightseeing then enjoy the evening inside in one of the many areas of the casino, hotel or restaurants. Potawatomi Carter Casino's hotel is also newly renovated. A recent ten month long project, now completed, definitely has its rewards. Guests entering the lobby will now notice the warmth and glow of a fire place, complimented by a lounge area for our guests to relax and a new business center. Don't miss the new feature wall of the lobby, highlighting the Forest County Potawatomi while checking in. As guests walk through the hotel to reach their room, you'll notice the rich wood that gives that warm comfortable feeling. Each newly renovated room offers that comfortable, cozy feel you can only get one other place, home. When guests first walk into their room, they are not walking into just any hotel room. They are walking in to a warm, inviting atmosphere equipped with, what guests are calling, "the most comfortable beds they have ever slept in." All of the rooms feature a 47'' HD TV, suites have two TV's, free Wi-Fi, a Keurig coffee machine, refrigerator and microwave and in room safe. While staying don't forget to check out the recreational facilities. Guests can enjoy a swim in the indoor pool, relax in the hot tub and sauna or run an extra mile in the fitness center, all located on the lower floor of the hotel. While visiting, guests will find two areas for their dining pleasure. Located right on the casino floor, The Flames Sport Bar is the ideal place to watch any and all sports. The dining room is surrounded by televisions so guests are sure to see their favorite team, whichever sport it may be. But, they'll have a hard time missing anything on the large 165" screen! Who wouldn't want to stop in, have a drink and enjoy some delicious food? Located just down from the hotel lobby, the newly renovated Springs Restaurant, has an open, inviting concept dining and bar area. Guests will find daily featured specials for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The new menu features a selection of omelets, skillet breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and a variety of dinner entrees to include steaks and seafood. The bar in The Springs restaurant brings its own flair to the facility. With fourteen tap lines, guests are sure to find a draft that will compliment any entree on the new menu. Each month, a microbrew is highlighted, showcasing five different types of drafts. Most of these come from Wisconsin, so what better way to taste the flavors of the state, without having to drive the distance. This area also features a new lounge area with comfortable leather couch and chairs so guests can relax in style while enjoying the company of friends and family. The casino floor offers an unparalleled experience in the area. Open round the clock, with over 500 slot machines to choose from, guests will have a hard time finding just one favorite to play. Guest will always find a variety of newer slot machines, video poker and progressive machines with more machines arriving almost daily. Just off the casino floor located by the Bingo hall, a wide variety of Class II machines available for the eighteen year old gamers wanting to test their luck. Table Games opens daily at ten o'clock offering Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, Blackjack, Roulette and Craps available weekends or by calling ahead. Bingo is open Wednesday through Sunday and offers a wide variety of games for everyone. Bingo goers will find there are early birds games offered each day before regular bingo games start too. Bingo also offers state of the art electronics available for guests. The newly revamped Carter Club, which is the Potawatomi Carter Casino's award winning loyalty program, now consists of six different tiers. Each has a set of benefits that goes along for our guests to enjoy. Guests can easily earn the points they need to become part of the tier they desire.
