When on the gaming floor be care full not to run into employees that are standing around visiting with each other. They seen to stand behind players and comment about their weekend or after hour parties swinging keys around sometimes hitting guests while not paying attention. Also so much eating of snacks from staff while working. It's really a turnoff.

Not the fanciest facility, but very good service. Everything was accurate and clean. Didn't know what kind of place I would find way up in Minnesota, but am glad that shooting star was recommended to me and that I decided to make the trip.

We can down for a paranormal convention and that aspect of the trip was wonderful. The staff didn't seem to have their stuff together. Our reservation was lost when it was booked for 3 months. They were very rude, and at one time I went to ask for a new pillow because mine was covered in stains and the woman...
