My wife, our pooch, and I spent four nights at the DMG this past June and had a great time! We stayed in the Big and Rich suite, and thought the room was very nice. The room was very clean, and set up nicely. The bedroom is separated from the living room area by a rock fireplace room divider. On the bedroom side of the divider was the fireplace and a flat screen TV and on the living room side there was a small frig and another flat screen TV. The pluses of the room were: very comfy bed, very wide (although narrow) balcony facing the town, nice size bathroom (good shower water pressure and a shower head that was at a good height, I am 6'4" so that is important to me), a nice size in room safe, and like I said earlier, very clean. The only real negatives were there was no microwave, and although they have room service, there were no menus in the room.
A lot of people reviewing this hotel are put off by the fact you have to use two sets of elevators to get to the hotel rooms. We did not find this difficult at all. You do have to walk through part of the casino to get to the first set of elevators which take you to the hotel check in and then another set to get to the rooms, but the whole journey is not that long, and the casino is easy to navigate.
The casino itself is very small (not by Deadwood standards), but actually quite nice. We love roulette, and while they don't have any live roulette tables, they do have an automatic roulette table that uses an actual roulette wheel, and continuously spins. We had a great time there. The casino also serves complimentary well drinks. You can purchases top shelf liquors also, and if you do, ask about long pours (definitely worth the extra $1.50).
We ate several meals at the hotel, and while I did have an excellent Walleye dinner the first night, overall the food was just okay.
The best part of the hotel though was the people working there! The whole staff was awesome!! Special mention goes out to Lisa at check in, The Jerry's (pony-tailed and good fellow, well he reminded me of a mob guy), and a lady (I am so sorry I didn't get her name because she was so awesome!) who assisted with luggage our last day there. She works for the school system for most of the year, then works at DMG during the summer. Super lady! Everyone we encountered went out of their way to help out or just say hey! Thanks to all of you!!
