We had a great experience! First to e here and it was very accommodating, very pleasant staff from start to finish and all in between. The promotions for Players Club members are fantastic as well. Prizes on rooms, drinks and food are not outrageous either, lower than expected for most. My boyfriend and I are not smokers and we were...

We recently stayed here and used their Spring Fling promotion, getting a premiere 2 queen bed room in the new tower, a BOGO breakfast and bar drink in the casino. We also signed up for a new player card at the casino so received two free buffets. The buffet was alright, dinner included deep fried shrimp, ham, and ribs, offering...

I stayed in this hotel during the Arrowhead 135 race and my room was overlooking the finish line. The room was really set up nicely with a queen bed in one room and a murphy bed and couch in the other. There was even an out of the way place to set up a portable crib.

I was told how great Fortune Bay was and decided to visit with All Road Tours. We arrived, we were promptly given our room keys and headed off to our room. The room was clean and roomy. We enjoyed playing the games on both levels. We only made it to the pool for a quick view, but the area was...

This is the second time we have visited Fortune Bay. We have been fortunate enough to get the same room - a Suite that includes a microwave and fridge, with a fireplace. It looks out toward Lake Vermillion.

Went for an overnight stay, great service at check in. Relaxing walk along the water and when we were finished at the casino it was nice to be in the pool and hot tub after ten when it was adults only. The meal at supper was well worth it and the service all round was good.

We had a wonderful time at the "Bay". We arrived early on a Friday in October, after a wonderful drive up US Highway 53. We were hoping to see more tree color changing, but it was a little late in the season. Check in was easy and very friendly service. Our room was clean and orderly with a balcony and...
