Stayed here for three nights as part of a tour group and had a great time! Room was clean and spacious with two queen size beds. Bathroom was huge and towels plentiful. Free in-room safe. Had a TV but didn't watch it much...was always in the casino! Housekeeping was friendly, but not really thorough on day to day cleaning. Maybe they don't vacuum until new guests check in or you really make a mess. Don't misunderstand, the room was not dirty or uninhabitable.....just little things like potato chip crumbs and recyclable cans and bottles were overlooked during our stay. FYI, this property does not have a pool.
The Gem Restaurant inside the MP served good food at great prices.....the chicken fried steak and prime rib were excellent(my wife would disagree on the chicken fried steak as it is not exactly heart healthy)! I did try the sliced buffalo steak one night and found it very tough to chew...I'd recommend a buffalo burger if you want to go that route. Table games here are 3 card poker and blackjack. Overall, dealers were great(one stodgy exception) and seemed a bit more friendly,relaxed, and helpful than in Vegas, maybe because the table limits are generally lower(starting at $2). Plenty of slots if that's your interest. Free tap beer or wine for gamblers. I understand by next summer the MP will have a major expansion with a much larger restaurant, some upscale rooms, and a full liquor license(just wine and beer now).
I wouldn't hesitate to return to Deadwood and the Mineral Palace !
