Paid a lot of money for two room suite that was very very small. What have been cheaper to buy two adjoining rooms. You have to walk through the lobby from the pool room to...

We stayed at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs two weeks ago, and contacted the hotel right after our stay with this story, and they have yet to respond, so I am going here to get resolution. We stayed at the property on a Saturday night and I went to the pool with my 4YO to swim for the evening. We...

Casino is smoky and dry (believe it or not). Buffet is ordinary at breakfast, but pretty good for lunch with many options and good attention to refilling/updating options. Priced reasonably for a good buffet.

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and have always been pleased with the staff, restaurants and activities (pool, etc.). However, this time was disappointing. The cost of a room has drastically increased, they have changed out the restaurant options and added a new burger place (which was not all that impressive and somewhat expensive) and...

Grand Mille Lacs is a mid range hotel - don't plan on room service and definitely plan to wait on valet ;-). It is NOT a new casino (pretty junky) but it is the "only game in town" for many miles. The food in the buffet is fair to crappy and the burger bar is ok. The only breakfast to...

Stayed for 2 nights, the food (at buffet and B3 eatery) was very good, the staff was extremely friendly, getting a room was a breeze, signing in to the hotel was easy, and even the machines were nice to us (ha!)...only problems with the room were that the walls seemed a bit thin (not unlike many a hotel room we've...
