We stay here each year on our way to NW Wisconsin and probably will again...but I certainly hope the management realizes some attention is needed in a few different areas...the bedding in the hotel room was poor..had a strange odor and was scratchy...the mattress was saggy and very uncomfortable ...we spent some time in the sports bar and tried to...

We just spent a few days in the UP and stayed at the Island Resort & Casino. Overall we had a good time. They had a good variety of machines for the size of the casino. It was not very busy nor smokey, which was very nice. We received coupons for $5 off food, $5 toward a beverage, $5 toward... More

This is the only place to stay, but you will have excellent service even though the accommodations are strictly basic. The rooms are large and spacious in the newer tower and the bathrooms have lots of room for getting ready. I really appreciated the make up mirror, (although the placement made it a bit awkward to use) and the large... More

Nice casino! Large casino with 3 restaurants! The 3 Bridges Pub has a FANTASTIC build your own burger and so many beers on tap you can't possibly try them all! Go ahead, try! The casino had a nice selection of slot machines as well as table games. We didn't come out big winners but we did have a good time!... More

We stayed here while traveling thru MI. The rooms are very clean and well kept up. The rooms are quiet. The hotel is attached to the casino and the entire staff is welcoming and friendly. Although our room was comped, when we have stayed before, the room rates were very reasonable.

We visited the Island for the 1st time and was totally disappointed when we arrived at our room in the Sun Tower. It was more like a prison cell than a hotel room. Yuck! Luckily, we were able to get it changed to the Palms Tower. Casino was nice and so was the Firekeeper restaurant. Slots were new and fun.

We went to Island with our daughter and son-in-law for a weekend golf getaway. We love Sweet Grass and wanted them to experience it. We have stayed at the Island in the past and they have slowly been trying to make improvements. Like the new sports bar and had great service there. The 5 Bridges restaurant was great with generous... More

Not sure what they can do because smoking is allowed in the casino:( we're on the 5th floor and the room stinks from smoke I can't stand it.

Made reservation on internet and paid for room for weekend but room was not available at check in...only option was to pay, again, for suite. Terrible service, no manager 'available' for entire weekend. Post stay phone calls and emails ignored. NEVER STAY HERE.

We get up to The Island Casino 3-4 times a year and enjoy every visit greatly. The rooms are great, the food is great, the people are great and sometimes the machines are great. The new sports bar is a nice addition. If it wasn't for the 6 hour drive, we would visit more often.
