    Parking. What a joke! Front desk, rude as could be. Key quit working, didn’t get a new one like asked. Other staff is awesome. The pool was okay but for how big the hotel is they should have a little bigger of a area. Room was clean but not as nice as I thought for the price. Overall it wasn’t the worst experience but I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

  59. Ykcir Nagnap Sagrav say:

    I just been there last weekend and it’s always a good time mostly listening to a live band while you’re playing

  60. Eric Fox say:

    Never work here again

  61. Pam Magnuson say:

    The spa is fantastic and the food is pretty good but there is no reason why I have to hold my breath and walk through smoke to get anywhere. Yes there is a smoke free slots area but why can’t the whole place be smoke free so I all my clothes and luggage smell like an ashtray?

  62. Todd Lancaster say:

    Worst service ever!

  63. Julie Kapeller say:

    Really enjoyed the Casino staff so very accommodating and friendly…I wish the casino was smoke fee at least the hotel area..otherwise it was very nice and def would stay here again

  64. Brian J. Weimer say:

    Make it Smoke Free like Fargo is!!!

  65. Alissa Knopps say:

    My husband and I came yesterday June 10 we decided to try the restaurant smoke place (I can’t remember the name) our server was good. We had the juicy Lucy’s. My husband’s onion rings were very cold we ordered no onions and him no tomato we both got onions and tomatoes. My juicy Lucy was very pink. Yes it says on the menu will have some pink but not mooing pink. We gave up on prime rib in the buffet because it’s never cooked to my liking even when put on the grill and the food is always cold.

  66. Markus Stegman say:

    Nice casino, not the nicest staff in the world, some very rude!! Food also not the best

  67. Martin Trottier say:

    Great place to go and enjoy your self and all the staff is very polite

  68. Peggy Anderson say:

    Hard to get on my favorite machine but fun for an afternoon.

  69. Ernie Bischoff say:

    I feel you can satisfy everyone with regards to smokers and non smokers

  70. Karen Strand Ertmann say:

    Love it!!!

  71. Leon Butcher say:

    Shooting star has by far the best promotions available for its gamers.

  72. Greta Ebsen say:

    Love karaoke at the shooting star (; best set up and great music selection!! Ode to Jim Morrison

  73. Steve Foldoe say:

    Even when I worked there I loved this place.

  74. Yolanda French say:

    Thumbs down… I go there twice a month never won any thing or get credits.

  75. Dennis Woody Roux say:

    I don’t go any more all my games are gone and I used to go a lot but some dumb ads manager knows better

  76. Brad Nelson say:

    I wish I could rate this zero stars. Spent 2 nights here. Got up and left around 9am, came back for the second night at 9pm. Door was propped open!!! Anybody could have stolen our stuff, all day. Worst staff in America. Every employee has additude. Blackjack tables, every dealer has to look and see if they have 21. Mgmt is to cheap to buy a 5$ battery for the blackjack checker machine. I left here plus 1200$. I’m definitely not a sore loser whining. Staff and mgmt 2 Major thumbs down.

  77. Jennifer Johnson say:

    Worst place I have ever been. Will not recommend. Do not have a wedding reception there. They ruined the night for me. The workers hover over and want to take your food before you’re done eating, the decorations were being torn down two hours early. Security are the biggest a holes I have ever met. Meatballs were tough, new potatoes were awful. Definitely a nightmare.

  78. Taylor Irene say:

    We had an excellent stay at the shooting star casino!! will definitely be back!!

  79. Cynthia Foxhoven say:

    We love everything here to casino to food to cleanse to hotel the people who work here are excellent friendly hard working.

  80. Abby Ovaldson say:

    I love this casino!! Although I’ve watched it grow and transform over the years when I would visit my dad. Always enjoyed myself here. The beds were amazing!! I had a nice super soft blanket. I just love it there!! The pool absolutely amazing!! Its not freezing cold, the deep end is actually deep. They have a cute little kids pool area. I love how bands can play over one of the bars. Things I don’t like are, some staff members are NOT nice. Others are SUPER nice. They need to expand on the beer. And different games to play. Maybe expand the game areas? I like how there’s 2 parking areas. 1 in front and 1 in back. The 4th floor confuses me! I like how the pool is open really late. I just love this place!! They should put the ice cream area back in again. The gift shop has many different things. I just love it there!! Feels very homely!

  81. Sheri L Tuesday say:

    Hotel staff are miserable and not trained in customer service. STARDUST (old area) rooms awful, beds are in poor condition, rooms cold and musty/damp. Staff are rude when asked for extra blankets. Casino awards desk have friendly staff and are very helpful. Go to the casino where service is better but don’t stay in hotel.

  82. Evelyn Gray Carman say:

    Love it there I go there twice a year I have so much fun.

  83. Brandon Ambuehl say:

    Good casino bit doesn’t pay me shot for money but I still come here

  84. Patty Miller say:

    Deanna Carter concert was awesome last week. Keep up the good entertainment. PS. the meal was great as well

  85. Sandy Atkinson say:

    We have had an absolutely wonderful experience here. Our hotel check in was pleasant and extremely accommodating. While the room is a bit small it is equipped with a decent size refrigerator, microwave and a Kuerig coffee maker (k-cup). The staff have all said “hi” when we pass them. And the little cafe has the BEST Burgers! For everyone who complains about the need to go “smoke-free” – I have found the ventilation to be excellent and do not mind the occasional smoker who sits next to me while I play.

  86. Nancy Wilson say:

    Awesome place I’m a new member and I enjoyed my time that I was there very friendly atmosphere and delicious food

  87. Dalia Buentello say:

    One of my faves when I lived in ..kellier,Minnesota

  88. Craig James say:

    Rooms were very nice…the staff was awesome..i mean all staff..the bargirls..the bartenders..the beer cart girls…the beer kiosk girls..and everyone else too…jk all staff was very polite..

  89. Memer Becca Salvador say:

    The staff has been friendly. Alot of options for food and the experience is just awesome

  90. Diane Anderson Gunderson say:

    The digital sign at the Buffet entrance had the price of $16.99 posted for the Thanksgiving Dinner but they charged us $19.99 at the till. When several of us complained/commented about the price discrepancy the hostess and one clerk called it to the attention of a employee dressed in a suit. The gentleman said he could fix it, no worries. The gentleman said he would just shut the sign off and then that would be it, so he did.

  91. Ronald Koenig say:

    I like this casino had a nice visit with my family and friends. I am going to stay again

  92. John Kirsch say:

    Poor food service Tim Horton’s closes early with no signs posted also workers ignore you. Buffet servers don’t bring drinks or silverware and you get talked to when you get your own

  93. Coleen Lowry say:

    Fun !!!!! ……………………………………

  94. Kelly Janssen say:

    Horrible service in the wispering wind cafe!!!! Waited over an hour for food waitress “forgot” my soup we didn’t get refills until we asked someone else asked for an extra condiment and never got it also the food was gross and cold I could tell it sat for a while before we got it. and we watched 5 other tables get there after us and get their food first but all we ordered were 2 specials and a cheeseburger!!! Ruined my night!!!

  95. Diana Herrick say:

    My sister and I ate at the Whispering Wind 5 times while we were here.The service was great as was the food.Every thing was wonderful.Keep up the good work

  96. Paul Munter say:

    Very fun tons of machines lots of bonuses lots of play for your dollar friendly staff

  97. Tracie Jacksin say:

    Rooms are ok, I love whispering winds depending on the waitress, buffet is eh BUT after spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars there payout sucks most I ever won was $100 .

  98. Jan Stickland say:

    We’ve been going there for years. Now they have the worst payouts. Turned our cards in and requested to be removed from their computers.

  99. Joe Marlene Cop say:

    Are youse still having the 50 75 points at par for Canadians on May 15 to19

  100. Deedy Whitney say:

    itherHotel room was good however one bed
    was broken left note for them to fix it.
    On day of checking had coupon for room ($2995) but the girl who had reserved our room placed us in a more expensive room in “stardust suites”
    We asked for smoking and handicapped accessible got booked for neither.
    Very hard to take care of a person with a leg amp in a wc in a non accessible room.
    No bars. Toilet so low could be a potty chair for kids.
    Kudos to whispering winds the steaks were topnotch! Service was spot on! Decor was kool loved the wolves!
    Favorite floor person ever in the casino floor>> Mr Person. Smiles so nice!

  101. Nora Rocha Geatz say:

    Stayed there during kenny rogers concert room was clean concert was great will defently go back

  102. Amber Madsen say:

    Would be supper awesome if there was a daycare family friendly I still love it though

  103. Chris Olson say:

    I was basically called a liar after a machine failed to register the bill. After calling for service, they checked the machine and proceeded to tell me that I did not put the bill in! Frustrating to know that their customer service did not handle the situation and refund my money! I will never return to this facility!

  104. Willborg Ann SH Brenk say:

    The shows are amazing! Tho they don’t need Jumbo screens, they have them and are clear as a whistle! Never disappointed with the bands in the Mustang Lounge! Food is 5* all the way.

  105. Chris Ellsworth Anderson say:

    Worse service ever! Waited over 45 minutes for our food in restaurant. Not even very busy!! Buffet looked days old and sand which shop had flies all over food. DO NOT EAT THERE

  106. Chelsea Jansen say:

    Frankie Ballard put on such a great show! Loved it! Hope you have him back again sometime! ����

  107. Joey Marie Anderson say:

    Great casino and hotel. Loved the staff. Everyone was so friendly. Can’t wait to take in another concert there. The security did a awsome job. Front dest clerk really seemed to care how are stay was. Thank you so much for the great stay!

  108. Virginia Nal say:

    Was there last night it was fun. We have a blast listening at the band.

  109. Tom French say:

    You need the FOX news channel – CNN is one sided
    Rooms are too noisy

  110. Dana Slimmer say:

    HORIRBLE HOTEL STAY. Heater/AC malfunctioned and they wanted US to pay a service fee to repair it!!!! Then had to vacate room for them to repair and they never called us to come back!!! Was out of room over 7 hours. Did get fixed but not after elderly mother got violently ill from fumes. They refused to give us any money back and even a former employee who tried to help us got shut down. Was there for conference so had no choice to stay there, 2 days later NO ONE has called us back. No employee ever said sorry or wish we could help you. No manager on duty even with a conference there. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, POOR MANAGEMENT AND OVERPRICED ROOMS WITH TSSUE PAPER WALLS.

  111. Kory Peterson say:

    Never staying here again. Got kicked off the property for supposedly having pot in our room. We were there celebrating a family wedding and got tracked down by the security guards. Didn’t even search the room for pot. Just said it smelled like pot. We demanded local authorities to be present so we can take a drug test, but the casino denied our request. Don’t stay in room 3114 due to the fact it may have pot in it.

  112. Michelle Riendeau say:

    No words can say how poorly my family and I were treated. We were there for a family wedding and we were accused of smoking pot in our room. The funny thing is all we did was drop our bags in the room and went to reception were everyone saw us. The experience was HORRIBLE I got to use the room for 5 min tops. What really makes me wonder is who can get into your room when you aren’t there Is your personal belonging safe. Please think twice before you stay at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahonomen MN.

  113. Denise Nise Ready say:

    We had a very nice stay. Would have liked to be closer to casino. It was a nice stay still. Going back next year!

  114. Nicole Ann Riendeau say:

    This place is a bunch of bullshit. I’d give this place a zero if I could. They harassed us by continuing to say we smoked pot in our room when we only dropped our bags off and my boyfriend went to get my shoes and ID for us to gamble. Get rudely interrupted with a shitty guard saying we smoked in our room. When my mom was trying to get a baby to sleep at the wedding reception. We demanded drug tests but they wouldn’t let us. They won’t even respond to our phone calls, so we lost money. They’re staff is shit. Said we could stay, but no way when they’re going to kick us out in the first place if we didn’t hand over our “weed”. May I add, I HAVE NEVER SMOKED WEED, and neither did my mom or boyfriend. TBH, the one guard looked like he smoked a blunt. Was told the hallway smelled terrible so I don’t get how they can pin point it to our room. Didn’t even go into the room before saying it smelled. Shitty place, don’t waste your damn time.

  115. Jerry Record say:

    Lunch was good , but I lost my ass gambling …….10.00 Dollars worth. I still feel sick…….bah ha ha

  116. Jacqie Dotson say:

    I love this place. It’s beautiful inside. We always have fun here and the service is amazing.

  117. Tara Jo Thompson say:

    Room was a bit spendy for stuff to be broken (like the shades!) And i feel as if we had a long walk to the pool. (They should have one or two pools with how many rooms they have!)

  118. Debbie Galvan say:

    Worst casino I’ve been to. They do not clean the machines. Place is extremely smokey. The hotel rooms are absolutely not worth the money they charge. They really need to spend money to update the entire casino. Seems they just put the money made right in their own pockets and not invest it to make the casino better. We tried to eat at one of their restaurants yesterday and were offered take out only because their staff didn’t show up for work! Very disappointing casino for sure!!

  119. Jena Kapaun say:

    What’s there not to like? Casino, bars, restaurants, pool, hotel and not one problem with the staff! My family likes it and we plan on going back every chance we get.

  120. Jerry Eklund say:

    The rooms are way overpriced. For what you get, they should be $50/night. I paid the same price for a stay at the Hampton Inn.

  121. Alicia Croaker say:

    Attending Paracon at the casino has been a wonderful time. Get to meet favorite stars of shows and make new friends. Definitely going back next year.

  122. Debbie Kilts say:

    Was there this weekend for Paracon. Didn’t stay at the hotel cause it was sold out. But everyone I came into contact with was very friendly! Ate at the cafe and food was great! Even had the same thing the next day! The only thing was the casino was very smokey, so we didn’t play the machines much. Need better ventilation. But loved Paracon and plan to do it again!

  123. Aim Cloud say:

    Love being Herr and playing have to make another trio again

  124. Amanda Wakal say:

    Next year for Paracon please get the Travel Channel in the rooms. You have celebrities that attend who have shows on this channel it would be nice. Thank you.

  125. Sherman Sartin say:

    House keeping was great, the casino was fun we made money and didn’t lose much came our ahead and the bars were lively

  126. Dawn Cajune say:

    Had a great time and stay during Paracon. But it was a long stressful few months trying to get rooms for all 3 days. But it worked out the day we checked in. And I love the new coffee shop and as always the chicken wild rice soup and fry bread are the best!

  127. Daniela Laroche say:

    Had a great time at Paracon 2016 please bring back Michael Culditz from TWD! Or any other TWD STAR! Great weekend!

  128. Redfeather Sturdevant say:

    Whispering wind new menu is lame. The menu at the deli is way better.

  129. Andy Rademacher say:

    The bus tour we were on rooms were ready promotional items not and no room keys
    Tour guide asked all rooms together not all over casino. But did win some money

  130. Cori Gingell say:

    We had an excellent weekend at the Shooting Star. Our room was very clean, bed very comfy, everything we needed …..
    The staff were super friendly and helpful. As one other guest said, the place was very smoky to a point that my eyes hurt, but they do have a no smoking area which was a little better.
    Overall, excellent and I will definitely return.

  131. Pete Ellis say:

    I got to donate lots of money.the toxic mashed taters were lumpy the walleye sticks. Weren’t bad.

  132. Jaime Reed Paulson say:

    I’ll continue to keep coming back here. The people who work here are friendly, foods good, fair slot payout, and they bring in great entertainment!

  133. Amy Lesmeister say:

    Stayed after a concert. VERY pleased. Beautiful place, friendly staff, great food, casino even payed out well�. Highly recommended to all!

  134. Alice Traversie say:

    I had fun!!!I liked the buffet, fresh fruit and vegetables. Yumm

  135. Bailey Jo Mortensen say:

    Worst customer service. Hotel front desk “Lead” was not helpful at all. How do you have a hotel check in system that you only check to see the room on hold by the first and lastname and that’s it?? Like how is that the ONLY way you can look it up?
    My friends and I booked this room 3 months in advance to go to this concert.

  136. Tommy Swany say:

    Been going there since the year it first opened over the years it has really gone down hill spent over a grand every time and never get very many points even people that work there say they are messing around with there machines don’t pay out like they used to not even close and mess around with there long time visitors

  137. Elizabeth St Clair say:

    Sitting at the Whispering Winds for a sandwich. Our server acts like we are totally bothering her.

  138. Chelsea Noe'l Poser say:

    Good food, well made drinks, good bands at the Mustang Lounge, comfortable beds in the hotel, amazing coffee (really. I don’t know why it’s so good but the flavor is dynamic and not bitter.), and oh lord the wild rice soup! It’s different in every restaurant, and each one is worth trying because they’re equally good. There’s lots of things to do… There’s a pool, a spa, a gym, a gift shop, a gas station, liqoyr store, two bars, four restaurants, even a Tim Hortons! This place is pretty much my home away from home. The staff is so nice!

    My only criticism is that the hotel rooms are a tad too dark. Possibly they could update the lighting? And the steak is less than desirable, I don’t know what happened, but lately every steak my mother and I ordered has been riddled with gristle. But hey, bad shipments happen right?

  139. Brook Petrie say:

    Unclear on pricing paid 135.00 for one night holy sh..t. and the next night 72.00 with a group discount. Waiting to check in sucks…rooms are kept very clean, I found dry urine on my bathroom floor. Overpriced…good buffet, very smokey casino..

  140. Kaitey Lee say:

    Bad ass someday more then others but don’t give enough promos

  141. Fran Shannon Lucore say:

    Always a great time♡ 1st time we had stayed in a room which I booked at noon for the same day and even had no problem getting a pet friendly room right by the door. The room was clean with no previous pet smells. Love the Chili in the grill… and workers are very nice. Good breakfast buffet and staff. Casino floor servers are very attentive. Of course we always would love to win more in Casino but to be honest we have only lost there really bad twice. Have never hit a Jackpot here but we have have left many times even or ahead max betting. Last night hubby won $967 in 1st 5 minutes on his FREEPLAY .. which of course we weren’t gonna walk right out lol..But had fun playing with their $ for about 3 hours going up and down before heading to the room. Next morning played some more.. and left after and awesome night of fun $700 ahead after all expenses. Yes I would recommend a visit to anyone who enjoys a fun night out.

  142. Brenda Jeanine Bergeron Skime say:

    I was so excited with the promotion I had been sent, I had it for awhile but it contained no date, when I called and asked the manager had she told us they would honor the coupon, it was for a room, a few dollars to gamble and money off the buffet for a good price. My son had a race in Fargo the next day, the night turned into a nightmare with my car breaking down, so getting there late, then on our arrival another manager denied the coupon, I wanted to get my son fed early for his half marathon the next morning and to bed early, we left angry, and turned them into the Better Business Bureau, which the manager told me he could care less, my son and I took a room in Detroit Lakes and ended up eating at McDonald’s, which was really late at this point, close to midnight. I told the manager at Mahnomen I would not come again, and I haven’t.

  143. Sheila Kelly say:

    Stood in line for half hour for a players card, get to the front and lady closes her desk..she could have told me to go to other line

  144. Patti Miller say:

    We did not like the smoke. Room was pretty good but really hot and turning down didn’t work It was ok but again smoke bad

  145. Carma Soyring say:

    We are not smokers so TOO smokey in there, could hardly breathe. My daughter has asthma so unfortunately we didn’t stay long!

  146. Lacy Lee Armstrong say:

    I went to see Neal McCoy! The staff was very helpful. I went to the show by myself, they made sure I found my seat correctly and greeted me with a comforting smile! Thanks Shooting Star! I had a very good night!

  147. Chase Allen Samuelson say:

    Casino was a good time, buffet was expensive for the amount and quality of food provided. Better smoke ventilation in casino would do wonders!

  148. Dorothy Ann Weishaar say:

    I liked the half price Breakfast Buffet!! We had a good time!

  149. Jomoy Laidback Lee say:

    Id like to thank the shooting star casino and their staff for welcoming us into their community. My wife passed and her services were in Natawash her grandparents are members of the tribe there and when we asked for help they did…five free rooms to be exact so yes im very pleased and grateful for everything

  150. Kayla Branstrom say:

    Shout out to Bethany for teaching me how to play blackjack and being so patient.

  151. Renee Fosmark say:

    I had a good stay, and the rooms are nice, but I have to tell you, the walls are paper thin as are the room doors. People in the hall talking and laughing at 12am was annoying, as was listening to the screaming, crying toddlers in the room next to us. Next time I’ll bring ear plugs. However, when not trying to wind down and sleep the experience was good. Very friendly staff, including the housekeepers, and great event center too.

  152. Jesse Chisholm say:

    No pitchers for beer so you have to spend more money on bottles on top of the tight slots. Buffet was really nasty and expensive for the little buffet they have. I’ll never spend a dime again in this crap hole!

  153. Gary Roberts say:

    Show was not my kind of music new country but the Mustang had a great band can’t wait for Mustang to have them back .Also BBI is coming back end of may to the Mustang great

  154. Wesley Cloud say:

    shooting star good entertainment
    hotel stay was kinda confusing
    above all i liked it

  155. Virgil Blacklance say:

    Grand Entry Records Had a good time at this years Shooting Star pow wow. We have had GOOD feed back on the CD from last year and people want the new one ASAP! lol. First Class Treatment from the pow wow from day one. Thanks to all the drums and dancers that came out to shake a leg. GRAND ENTRY RECORDS.

  156. Jazmyne Olson-Courchene say:

    It’s a very nice place and the workers answered my questions politely.
    I will come back again someday.

  157. Karen Czechmeister say:

    The deodorizer smell throughout the whole casino is so strong it made me sick. Why don’t they wash and clean instead of tryingto cover the stinky smoke? I ate at the buffet and had such bad cramps we went home instead of staying overnight. The machines are so tight you can put a couple of hundred bucks in and get nothing. I will not come back unless things change. How do people with breathing problems even stay here? I couldn’t stand it and I don’t have ny breathing problems.

  158. Blaine Arthur say:

    Got the maid service stealing shit out your hotel rooms and the service is super slow… And got people or probably dope fiends creeping outside your hotel doors standing around the hall by people’s rooms for no apparent reason

  159. Rob Goodman say:

    It was alright and the rooms are nice and clean room

  160. Maribeth E Melbye say:

    We were there for a concert..had a great time and hotel was very clean..definitely will go back again

  161. Sarah Smyer say:

    America was an awesome show. The venue was a little simple and crammed. Forgot about the smell of cigarettes 🤢

  162. Ruthie Villebrun Clumb say:

    Wonderful casino, all you want in a package………I could get lost in the machines and entertainment is very good. I say if you don’t like it stay home. I am thankful for the great stars and delicious food. Thank you Shooting Star Casino

  163. Rozella Lee say:

    Love this place! Good food, good music and good gambling!

  164. Vicki McMahon Dawes say:

    Came early to relax and enjoy drinks and light foods. Cafe was closed foir updates. Nachos were disappointing. Show was very good. Staff very nice abd helpful. Casino and restrooms clean.

  165. Melissa Kay Braun say:

    Watched the starship concert then to the mustang lounge for a few drinks then to the eat well cafe and off to their very comfy beds!! Great stay

  166. Maria Perez say:

    Is a fun place to be and love the hotel rooms and restaurants and customer service are great thank you shooting star casino

  167. Kelly Boehrns say:

    We came for a night over our anniversary weekend. Wasnt terrible, in our room there was no directory. The cable didnt work…I assume so wed play more. Pool was rather warm. Buffet is kind of small compaired to other casinos. We had a decent experience.

  168. Jamie Olson say:

    This casino has went downhill big time, staff is just plain rude!! And we had the surf n turf buffet we had to wait like cattle for plates for up to 30 minutes, then we got our plates and there was no surf n turf to be had it was all gone waited another 20-30 minutes for food and it was cold!!!
    The deli/cafe was no different we order simple hot dogs and chili fries waited 45 minutes for just that!!

    If your planning a trip I would advise another casino
    Just sparing others the headache…….

  169. Roy Rockensock say:

    The falling star casino serves alcoholic beverages that’s a plus. Bummer they have to have last call. I win some and I lose some usually loose probably cause of the booze. If I’m there to long I wanna take a snooze, but instead I go for a Cruz. Word up. P.s I wonder if the casino misses me! Lol

  170. MaryAnn Skaff Maameri say:

    Lunch buffet was not kept clean and food was not hot.

  171. Kirk Schaefer say:

    Great place. Hotel room clean, all common areas clean. Concert venue is great. Employees all friendly and always smiling. Will definitely come back.

  172. Lamonte Ramey say:

    Rock concerts and chairs on the floor don’t mix …

  173. Ryan Bissel say:

    Great experience, staff is second to none. Very helpful group of security ND door staff at events center.

  174. Alvin Grays say:

    Always love winning ��at ��Shooting ��Star Casino!!!!!!���

  175. Marcus Jay say:

    It was fun i am definetly coming back the workers were really nice

  176. Staisha Bethel say:

    We stayed the night and our room was nice with the exception that the tv was not working. They sent someone up to look at it. All he did was unplug it and plug it back in. That fixed it for about 10 min and then it went back to not working. Then we went to crawl into bed and pulled back the blankets to find some green crusty hard stuff of the sheet. So we called down to the front desk and they stated that no one was there to be able to come change our sheets but we can come down and get one and change it ourselves. THANKFULLY we had a 2nd bed in our room and the sheet looked ok on that one so we slept on that bed. But not to pleased with the service this weekend. But the Bridal expo was AMAZING and made it worth it.

  177. Joey Wood say:

    Fun with new machines, plus am awesome new pop machine

  178. Kenny Johns say:

    Fucking place sucks bed bugs and drity sheet room I was in had the fire alarm covers in wet napkins or something just gross

  179. Ronnie Skavlem say:

    It was a nice place to stay but didn’t understand that every place you bought a drink at was a different price and then when we were leaving our room to go check out there were 2 men who were housekeeping standing outside the rooms and when we came out of the room they instantly said are you checking out it was a little creepy

  180. Kristy Rastedt-Hovland say:

    My husband & I attended the Tanya Tucker concert last night which we thoroughly enjoyed! I was fortunate to get her autograph on my 1975 record album cover! We ate at the buffet which was amazing! The staff were all kind & helpful! We are looking forward to attending more concerts in the future!!

  181. Roger Skippingday say:

    Could use an upgrade of the Arcade maybe bigger more people would stay and play if there was more for the kids over all good time 1 exception the older guy at the buffet was pretty rude didn’t do anything usual tip but he didn’t even deserve a thanks

  182. Rebecca Wutzke say:

    I attended the Tanya Tucker concert with my husband and unfortunately couldn’t hear very well due to all the rowdy, drunk people talking throughout the concert. I was disappointed that no security tried to calm the section down so others could enjoy the show. I’ve been to other shows and none were as disappointing a this one. Controlling people’s rude behavior may not be possible but I think security could’ve tried to keep the insanity in check just by making their presence known.

  183. Lauren Clapp say:

    Expected more than just a bunch of slot machines with the same game with different pictures. Atmosphere was boring, everyone was drinking and smoking and just playing slots… The bars were beyond dead and the entire crowd was just lifeless. I’d rather fly to somewhere with more to offer than a casino with no personality that only leaves me wreaking of cigarettes. �

  184. Tony Masinas say:

    I had a lot of fun gambling.I will be back for the buffet

  185. Robert Henry Smith say:

    Went there after our intown wedding. Good Food at the Buffet and Very Polite Staffing.

  186. Lois Standish say:

    I really liked the hotel the casino and the staff was wonderful and casino staff was awesome and very cheerful and out going I’m going back soon !!!

  187. Kat Phillips say:

    I have so much fun here. It’s a bit of a drive but worth it. The machines aren’t tight so you can play longer with what you bring. The buffet was amazing.

  188. Ashley Listul say:

    It was fun having a DJ at the mustang lounge that they also gave a prize if u could tell them the name of the song and got it right

  189. Jesse Thorson say:

    The machines were hungry! Lol better luck next time

  190. Bill Staples say:

    Good place to stay and enjoy , the coffee and food is great, rooms nice…Good staff

  191. William A Fish say:

    Great experience and customer service at your new restaurant. Best steak I’ve had in quite awhile.

  192. RaeAnne Bowman VanCamp say:

    The concert was good, but won’t be back because of the smoke. Didn’t spend the night at the hotel, but still had a smoke “hangover” the next morning.

  193. Kevin Ehrlichman say:

    We were having a real good time until the SEAHAG ROSE hit our black jack table to deal. She was a complete crab ass and was very rude! She even called security to have my buddy removed from the table. All he was doing was spending a lot of money and having a great time gambling and drinking. It’s just too bad that someone on the staff has to try to ruin it for us after we traveled from a different state to stay and play! But all in all we had a great time, but just a warning…..if you see SEAHAG ROSE, you better go to a different table!!!

  194. Sheila Argue say:

    Lovely place! I like that the pool is open from 10-12 for adults only . The staff and service were great. The food was very good and there were lots of VLTs to lose my money at �

  195. Darcy Wright say:

    I haven’t been to the shooting star in years and was impressed with the renovations. My husband and I ate at the smokehouse restaurant where Whispering winds used to be and it was amazing. The price was reasonable, the service great and the food incredible. We saw foreigner and I had never been in their event center. The sound system was great, it was clean and the security guards were friendly which can be quite rare to stumble on. I would have given a five star review but I had to drop to four because the chairs in the event center was so smushed together that we were practically on top of each other. Now if it was Kelly Hanson from foreigner on top of me that wouldn’t have been a problem but they need to space things out a little bit in there. Oh and they don’t gouge you for drinks. It was $2.75 for a beer. That made for a happy me by the end of the night. �

  196. Pamela Steuber Anderson say:

    its a fun place to go when you have some time to kill….

  197. Rodney Sullivan say:

    I work there. Great place to work. I’m in the cage graveyard shift. Work with a great group of people.

  198. Angela Whirlwindsoldier say:

    My experience with The Shooting Star Casino has been nothing but pure blissful fun!! Fast friendly staff. I would recommend to everyone who wants to be a winner!!

  199. James Russett III say:

    Had to get my money back at the Easter dinner as no server would come over to serve a drink or give silverware. Not the first time this has happened. Service seems to be getting worse over the years. But I happily took my wife somewhere else (Smoke) to have a nice dinner. I will try another time, but if it continues to sink in care I will not be going back.

  200. Kim Foster say:

    Attended the Wynona show and was pretty good, staff was very friendly as well, the breakfast buffet was great and the service was awesome. The band in the lounge was great! Will definitely come back for them.

  201. David Kost say:

    The staff here always treats me great and are very friendly!

  202. Christian Grennier say:

    Ate at the buffet no waiter or waitress would come remove my plates or even refill my drink they just walked past me and sat and leaned against the wall very poor service.

  203. Nicole Villebrun say:

    I never win there, Northern Lights is where it’s at JS!!

  204. Joanne Eichhorst say:

    My mom and sisters have one weekend a year with just us. . .no kids. No significant others just pure bonding with each other. We usually go to Mystic Lake but because my mom had some health issues (She turned 91 this month) she chose the Shooting Star because of the proximity to home. Check – in was awful. Just awful. We had made reservations but names, addresses were all messed up and they were pretty rude. We tried to use some coupons but it was such a hassle to redeem them, we just paid for the rooms. The key cards to the rooms were difficult to get to work. And NO we didn’t put them near our cell phone! It wasn’t our first rodeo. Checking out was just as Frustrating. The porters and house keeping were great. They should probably teach the front desk about customer service and pleasantries. We were pleased with the breakfast buffet and the other restaurants. The casino floor personnel were pleasant and helpful. Thank you.

  205. Shannon M DuChien say:

    It’s very nice looking, high end look yet not overdone. The older rooms are not super fancy but definitely nicely decorated and beds were very comfortable. The buffet was tasty with good selection although they were completely out of syrup for the pancakes/French toast. Staff was very friendly at the buffet-I was impressed! Smoke the new restaurant has AMAZING food! The pulled pork with root beer Bbq sauce was phenomenal! Staff was young and inexperienced but friendly. The only suggestion I have at all is adding additional seating in the common areas-both smoking and none smoking-with softy cushy chairs and side tables. Right now there are very few places to sit and relax. Overall it is a very nice place and I’d definitely come back!

  206. Ashley Johnson say:

    The buffet people that cut meat or serve omelettes can’t wait to get you out of their face. Not friendly. The new BBQ restaurant disappointing if you know what real barbecue is, they call it “smoke” yet there was absolutely no smoke flavor in my ribs, the baked beans dumped from a can and the garlic mashed no garlic flavor. Basically bland like their buffet, if management reads this go to the city and go to some barbecue restaurants see what ribs taste like, see what care is given to bake beans and garlic mashed potatoes, you do not measure up. The band was a little loud in the lounge, so I asked a bandmember to turn it down a little bit, they said that the sound person was gone working another event in the casino. So here you are a casino who has hired a band to entertain in the lounge and you can’t hire two sound people??? When the band was supposed to start they were late because they were waiting for the sound person to come back to turn the lights on, come on really??? Mahnomen you should take some management lessons from St. Croix Casino’s. They know how to run a casino, you fail.

  207. Becky Hoven say:

    To all the haters of the shooting star you guys are doing what ya can and that’s all that later to the public all you are not perfect in any way shape or matter you have jobs ya hate things you do wrong as well so before ya bash the shooting star look at your dumb self smh

  208. Cameron Kier Warren say:

    It was fun and it was not bad or ecsebt when we got to owes room it was dirty like maid needs to a better job of cleaning instead of being lazy because there was no tp

  209. Matt Dahms say:

    MASSIVE selection of slots(1100+), most of the new games, and a lot of the classics. They aren’t as loose as others Casinos, but, luck is luck! The Hotel half needs some work. Very dated, and one of the beds in my room was so lop-sided, that it was useless. One of the maids said renovations are coming very soon.. Let’s hope!

  210. Sheri Koenen-Davis say:

    Fun casino. Husband won, so that was nice. The buffet was horrible. No silverware or plates. The prime rib was raw. Next time we’ll eat at the restraunt and skip the buffet.

  211. Gary Roberts say:

    Enjoyed being in the Mustang lounge with BBI the band , great band gave up my tickets to see BBI. Bring them back again & again

  212. Ryan Houle say:

    First time being there and its nice inside and beautiful every staff there is polite and happy

  213. Raelene Robertson say:

    Disappointed in the players club.

    They Didn’t tell us about the promotions being offered. There was a free slot tournament that they didn’t even tell us about so we didn’t hear about it until it wad too late to sign up.

    If u have out of towners coming to the casino you need to tell them about the promos

    Plus they never told us we had to sign up everyday for the Canadian at par promo

    Disappointed to say the least

  214. Nadine Kent say:

    Seen an ole Northern lights employee…dealing cards

  215. Anne Wiebe say:

    Had a great time as always. The buffet was great. Good entertainment.

  216. Sammy Garbow say:

    The Buffet and Smoke cafe are TERRIBLE !! I was here 3 years ago and they didn’t improve any since then. Alot of the people I talked to said the same thing as I said !! I’ll not come to this Casino again.

  217. Marilyn Bowstring say:

    It was fun. Great people great food and a whole lot of gambling.

  218. Frances Centre say:

    Great place to park your motorhome and enjoy the casino and it’s amenities. We stayed for 4 days and it’s very affordable. I would recommend this casino RV Park to anyone looking to stay at a nice clean enjoyable facility.

  219. Deb Uran say:

    I think its great ,the maintenance keeps the bathrooms clean , and in and around the machines are constantly being cleaned. im not to thrilled about how you have to order for take out at Smoke restaurant though. Cocktail servers in slower days dont seem to make the rounds enough. Other than that I think they outrate all of the other casinos in the area.

  220. Shari Johnson say:

    Thanks I won 750.00 on the two tickets to paradise picks. I go to casino a fee times a month always a good time an the food is great. Very nice staff.

  221. Wanda Wilkins say:

    The casino is great..we finally got a room by 8:30 which was awesome..were from Fargo so we didnt have to drive back..lol thanks Shooting Star..

  222. Patty Traversie say:

    Went to see Hotel California ~ Eagles Tribute, and enjoyed dinner and the awesome entertainment! Our rooms were just right, and we enjoyed the slots as well. Thank you Shooting Star, we’ll visit again.

  223. Tammy Stillday say:

    Had fun didnt win but hey can’t win em all lol y’all hagd

  224. Steve Tyler say:

    Slots were very tight but still had good time. Ate dinner at the buffet, staff was extremely slow. In all it was a nice chance to get away from the norm.

  225. Dorothy Hermanson say:

    Best show we ever saw loved it every one needs to go and see what you have to show them

  226. BillJudy Cote say:

    To smokey inside. Yes we know they have a no smoking area, doesn’t help.

  227. Steven Smith say:

    great accommodations, rooms are clean and very comfortable.

  228. Charles Dosh say:

    The show was awesome, but service was not so good. We ate at the buffet and couldn’t get our drinks refilled. The smoke is so thick in the place that I still can smell it (non-smoker). I think they need to work on their air filtration system to accommodate the non-smoker’s better.

  229. Shawna Kraft Dosh say:

    The ventilation system needs improvement, the waiter at the buffet never came back to check for drink refills…The staff at the concert area was great… The Rodney Carrington show was great!

  230. Stephanie Verleen Brekken say:

    I very much enjoyed the show I went to, Steve Earle and the dukes. It was amazing! I only rated the casino 4 stars since I never did anything other than be there for the show and meet the legend himself. Made my year.

  231. Audrey Emineth say:

    i played slots for a little while…got my money back plus some. walked out happy. got to see my friend!! ��enjoy going there!! no food/didn’t eat..but it usually is pretty good!! the Buffet anyway!!

  232. Deanna Racette say:

    Good customer service in all departments! Great food!

  233. Anne Stras say:

    Lisa is a great server in the Mustang Lounge. Very fun personality.

  234. Angela A Franklin say:

    They don’t even deserve 1 star. Don’t waste your time and money staying here.. It’s awful. There is always something wrong and gross with the rooms.

  235. Trinny Owens say:

    They dont clean up after customers. There was blood and syringes in the bed and only 20$ off the room ?? Hmm if i could give no stars i would

  236. Rileigh Morgan say:

    Bloody sheets and syringes in beds? Nah. Fix your housekeeping

  237. Victoria Miramontes say:

    I saw a public post about how someone found blood all over the sheets and a syringe in the bed. Will never stay here again! Gross!

  238. Jim Zejdlik say:

    Can’t do a -10 this place is dirty, the staff is rude. The rooms are filthy….someone just found bloody linen and a syringe in their “CLEAN”? room……health dept needs to step in….management needs to be looked at….

    Do not recommend to anyone!!!!!!

  239. T.K. Fran say:

    Just saw s friends post on line about bloody sheets and a syringe found in a bed at the Shooting Star. Wow imagine you pull the sheets back to go to bed and the sheets are bloody and the kids find a syringe.

  240. Patti Cornell say:

    Needles n blood
    Eweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  241. Carolina Leos say:

    Seen the viral photos of blood ect under the sheets. Will not ever come here.

  242. June Vanessa Flowers say:

    Nasty place nasty place do not stay here
    �������

  243. Sabrina Howard say:

    Leaving blood and syringes in the bed sheets.. Should be shut down.!

  244. Donna R-Rae Hall say:

    After hearing about a bloody bed and a syringe in the bed and to only give a 20 dollar discount AND only after moving the customers WITH children so late at night….disgusting. That is POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. You need to do something more for those clients! Word of mouth gets around quick. That poor family. Shame on you!

  245. Crystal R Peters say:

    Totally disgusted by a public post. Dirty blood sheets with a used syringe found in the bedding. Totally unacceptable. Unprofessional. Never been there and NEVER will.

  246. Ileana Bylyna say:

    just read a post about a family who checked into a disgusting room. blood on the sheets. used syringe under the sheets. disgusting. and you were so generous to offer a $20 discount for another room! what the hell is wrong with you people. this will be shared with many. serious health violation here

  247. Kristy Golden say:

    They don’t change bedding .. Finding blood and needles in bed..Would never stay here

  248. Debbie Kars say:

    I use to stay at the Shooting Star many years ago, but after seeing a review from a friend of mine on facebook I sure wont be staying there in the future. You have many canadians that come and stay there and since this has gone on social media i dont think a lot of them will be to excited to come stay there. The way this manner was handled is very very unprofessional, a 20 dollar discount? REALLY? There room should have been free and if they ever choose to come bk there next stay free. Your lucky they dont throw a law suit at you. Here is a copy of the family’s post…..Betsy Roed added 3 new photos — at Shooting Star Casino.
    Yesterday at 9:29am · Mahnomen, MN, United States ·

    Stayed at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen last night. Pulled back the blankets on our bed to find blood all over the sheets and a syringe laying there. Absolutely DISGUSTING! We mentioned this to the front desk and they moved us to a different room. So here we are, at midnight, packing up and moving ourselves and 3 kids to a new room. Upon checkout I mentioned this issue and hassle to the front desk, and all they could do is discount our room $20. I am appalled that’s all they could for us. I do not recommended this hotel to anyone! This post is public. Feel free to share!

    Needles and blood …………………………..

  250. Launie Sorensen say:

    Gross and disgusting is all I have to say!!! I would rate you a complete zero!!!

  251. Domingo Friggin Ramirez say:

    I’ll never stay here.
    You gave that person $20 for bloody sheets and a syringe. Who was fired? Start at management and work down..

  252. Betty Kelly say:

    Blood on the sheets means that your cleaning crew never cleans the sheets! Disgusting!

  253. Dennis Rinn say:

    must be some poor cleaning staff to not find a needle and blood in the sheets, Casino Health Fail…shut down

  254. Gregg Vreeland say:

    Why don’t you show the pictures of the family that checked in only to pull back the blankets of the bed to find blood soaked sheets and a syringe in the bed. You are so negligent in this matter and then didn’t even compensate the family fairly. It’s going to.be posted and shared everywhere. No one should stay here and I hope you lose lots of business

  255. Kevin Maxie say:

    Have heard to many bad stories about this place! I will never stay here or any of my friends and family will.

  256. Tiffany Irving say:

    We stayed here this past weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday. We started at the restaurant Smoke- the food was decent but the service was disappointing. The staff seemed young and maybe could benefit from some additional training. Check-in was quick, although the staff could have been friendlier. The room was exactly what I expected and what we needed. I appreciate how clean it was! The best part was our experience was the Mustang Lounge. Steele River band put on an excellent show and LISA did a phenomenal job serving us. She was definitely a hidden gem! She was quick and personable and just overall fantastic. I was going to rate my review with 3 stars but the cleanliness of our room and the service provided by Lisa made me decide to give 4.

  257. Monroe Royale say:

    Heard you had bloody sheets and stuff don’t recommend at all

  258. Heidi Sparks Cameron say:

    Disgusting rooms. Bloody sheets and needles!!!! Never stay here

  259. Tina Hawkins say:

    After reading more than one post on how your housekeeping department handles cleaning these rooms. I would never ever stay here and or recommend that any of my friends or family stay at your hotel.. All of the things that have been reported and it seems that it is still going on.. and then you do not even make it right with your customers. ?? Very poor business practice’s ,, I am a business owner, and you are very lucky that someone didn’t get hurt the few stories that are being told..you need to be shut down for a while and then maybe you will take these health risks more seriously.. and a hefty fine.. have a good day.. I know because of you there are a few that won’t…

  260. Stephanie R. Lovett say:

    You all need to do better housekeeping. That lady who posted the horrific disgusting story about the blood and syringe needs a FULL refund. That’s unacceptable! Gross

  261. Kyle Chase II say:

    not from there but stop leaving needles laying around.

  262. Addie Cobb say:

    Nope nope nope. Nasty nasty nasty I wouldn’t stay

  263. Jordan Cole say:

    This review is out of pure respect for the bloody linens and syringe found in a clean room… Horrible.

    Also, I’m reviewing McHale Ann, a staff member there who finds the need to rebute every review with social justice.

    Fin.

  264. Allison Glasper say:

    I cant believe they leave syringes in the rooms. I so glad I didnt stay there.

  265. Tyler May say:

    Horrible, disgusting, very unsatisfied, rude, service was slow! Of your desperate for a room and you don’t want to sleep in a cardboard box then definitely don’t want to waste my money here!

  266. Annie Koop say:

    Dirty and bad service. Horrible! Go somewhere else!

  267. Theresa Whitaker say:

    They don’t clean their rooms and let ppl check in with syringes laying around and blood on the sheets?? How nasty is this place.. And the manage management is horibble

  268. Tyler Ogle say:

    $20 for a bloody syringe seems fair. Except it doesn’t seem fair at all.

  269. Rose Jarvis Garceau say:

    Saying I hated it because after reading a review from a guest and myself being in hotel management for many years I am appalled to read and see a picture of disgust. Number one blood is about the worse but when you add a needle that means that the linens never were removed. They don’t come back from clean laundry like that. Get a grip on you housekeepers who really aren’t fulfilling their job title and where is management when the work is not getting done. Gett off your duff and walk thru some of your rooms and check on your cleaners. All this is a kick back on you as a manager. Your the one they look at and say what a disgusting lazy person to have his/ her rooms look like this and then to make yourself look even worse you take $20.00 off their bill. How negative on your part. How unwholesome you look to the world by say haha, I got their money and they like my filth. People work hard to spend their money at your establishment and they deserve way more than what your giving them. Also I hope you would feel totally responsible had one of them got picked by that used needle and contracted something. Your paycheck should be in jeopardy for this. Another management person view only.

  270. Dylan Hunnid Johnson say:

    Terrible terrible terrible terrible terrible terrible

  271. Shawn Anderson say:

    Never do I enjoy this place. Too full of smoke, the service is a joke. Went down to the restaurant and the food was terrible, no silver ware. After 20 minutes and asking 3 times we finally got a waiter. When he showed up, he didn’t look at us or say a word, just held out his note pad like he was ready to write. When the drinks came he slammed them down, split, and walked away. Never again will I go back.

  272. Kris Stevenson say:

    I will be forwarding the story to every news outlet and travel agency here in Manitoba.

    The hotel industry is gross and unsanitary, surprise… surprise.

  273. Tele Chérie say:

    Gross, dirty, syringe filled, what’s not to love! Stay in one of their many blood soaked sheet rooms for the full experience! *barf*

  274. Gail Houghton say:

    Your casino and staff are failing in every way possible.You do not care enough about your customers and your customer service is terrible . Staff dress like they dont have any pride in how the look and behave. Rooms are not cleaned properly. It used to be a really nice place to go. maybe you need a new management team. Have not been now for almost two years and thats a shame.

  275. Alicia Schultze say:

    Used syringes in rooms..disgusting and unsafe!!!!!!!

  276. Sonya Leverington say:

    Wonderful experience. Hotel very clean with friendly and helpful staff. My only concern was that many seniors stay here and there are no hand rails to assist in the bathrooms. I will be visiting again. Thank you for a great stay.

  277. Cara Heintz say:

    Sheets were dirty and stained, mattress itself had pee stains on it after stripping the sheets off. Bedding smelt musty.

  278. Cheryl Bard say:

    What’s going on that you cant change the bedding? How disgusting that someone had gotten a room with blood stains and a syringe in the bed. I will never chance staying here.

  279. Joanne Klinke Jorissen say:

    The rooms nice and clean, the staff nice and friendly. I would go back and stay anytime.

  280. Andrew BeBallin Youngbear say:

    I Work At The Shooting Star Casino As A Deli Cook And Cashier.

  281. Rival Bossman say:

    Friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Excellent food. Great time spent.

  282. Josie Magnan say:

    Always love coming to Shooting Star. Great service, rooms are wonderful and lots of fun! The spa was amazing! Keep up the good work Shooting Star! Can’t wait to go back!

  283. Justin Morken say:

    Shooting Star Casino is a world class gaming and entertainment establishment. Every time I step foot into Shooting Star, I feel like I just landed in Las Vegas. Thank you Shooting Star for the many years of incredible service and fun.

  284. Christine Olford say:

    I have stayed here a few times over the years , I do agree the housekeeping was way worse the last time I was there ( a few months ago) but the staff were all very nice , I think they perhaps do not have the proper training but they all tried hard and were polite and helpful. I do no that they take drugs very seriously, I have seen a dog walking around often. Anyone who goes there knows the food isn’t great but with 4 restaurants to choose from all decently priced you definitely won’t starve , also the spa and gym are really great !!

  285. Barbara Bates say:

    I went there to see Travis Tritt In concert. It had been 13 yrs since I was there last. There were a lot of changes but very nice changes. The Staff in each area we went were very friendly and helpful. The Room might have been small but it was clean and comfortable beds.Walls are thin because I could hear the next room’s TV. The Casino might be a little tight with payouts but the Casino area is very nice.

  286. Natasha Cloud say:

    Had a blast at the travis tritt concert. Wait staff were on top of great service! Room was very clean and comfortable bed!

  287. Stuart Deutsch say:

    Always bring the good shows. Travis Tritt just ruled last night!

  288. Jessica Martinez say:

    The walls in Lodge D are paper thin…I do not recommend you stay in this section-at all. I have not stayed in the other areas but this section is horrible!

  289. Kevin Hendrickson say:

    Let me say the bed was really comfortable, we opted for an upgraded room. We stopped overnight on our way back from being in the Black Hills. After enjoying clean smoke free casinos, the smoke hits you between the eyes, hard. Our clothes reek of it, we reek of it. Trying to spend time sitting at a machine here was punishing, to the point of feeling hung over on the smoke. In the Blackhills, it was enjoyable to spend time playing. We also had a much nicer room in a casino in downtown Deadwood for the same price, including a Turkish steam bath, and classy. Heavy panel wood doors, rich wall coverings, nice. Our room here felt like it was trimmed out in trailer-ish. Nice big screen TV, but the room itself, the doors, fixtures, everything just looked one star, including the bulk soap dispenser, not to mention it is a long walk to the casino floor, and restaurant. Being the only show around, we can’t write it off, but improvements would be very welcomed.

  290. Bradley A Hegvick say:

    Food at the new Smoke BBQ joint is amazing. Great service, friendly and very well priced. Concerts are always a good time and priced right. Beer lines are fast and bathrooms are clean. Safe and fun environment, just don’t pee outside they will send you home a friend of mine did that it didn’t end well.

  291. Jenn Mymko say:

    Sure has declined in the last year or so. Not as clean and the level of service is lacking terribly. We ordered a club sandwich which came soggy and without bacon and when we took it back to the counter they threw a handful of bacon on top. We’ve been going twice a year for around 10 years. New management has certainly cut corners and it shows. Very disappointing

  292. Loralei Allen say:

    We had a great time playing the machines at Shooting Star yesterday!! Won a little – played a little too long and it was gone!! But lots of fun!!

  293. Veronica Bellanger say:

    We needed a handicap room & got one ! The Bed was much to High , to get a person in a wheelchair into it! Something should be done about that ! Otherwise Staff was Awesome & Cleaniness a Plus 😃

  294. Johnny Vegas say:

    Horrible rooms and the service sucked. I will never stay here again. That is all�

  295. Sharon K Buckanaga Walker say:

    Our friend got us a free room. He got it free from his friend who bought a block of rooms. It was a nice stay.

  296. Stephani Niemietz say:

    This place is awesome:) I had fun playing the games

  297. Shonda Laducer say:

    Had a blast wonderful casino! Didn’t know it was so big until I went inside. Fun experience!

  298. Laurie Nelson say:

    People..do not buy $75 tickets for Paracon!! The 2 headliners..Ghost Adventures and for the 2nd time , Josh Gates, didn’t show up. Ghost Hunter guys are always there and that shows their integrity to their fans!! Shooting Star Casino charges people for 2 days even if you can only go one day..they cancel shows as you are there..they need to answer to Better Business Bureau! I only marked it “hated it” because of what the casino does..cudos to tjose who value their fans.

  299. Chris Sanchez say:

    My son and I attended Paracon 2017 this past weekend and found ourselves disappointed with how the event is run. 3 main attractions cancelled out. Amy Allen cancelled over a month ago, which is understandable, Josh Gates failed to arrive Saturday due to plane issues (not in his control) and Ghost Adventure team cancelled 2 days before the event (group is a joke anyway).
    A lot of technical issues during the event that either created late starts or had issues with video or lack of presentation slides. Also worth mentioning is the lack of event staff available. During Q and A with presenters, it was rare to have staff on floor with microphones. This usually resulted in presenters unable to hear questions, attendees have to yell questions or limited interaction.
    Seeing Chad Coleman was cool, but having a big line of people in a small room blocking other booths is just not good for their businesses. Why not block off a section along hallway towards skywalk and bathrooms. That would allow the casino to show Native American leaders and artifacts, while giving room for attendees in meet and greet room. Lines can happen anywhere, but a big name meet should be somewhere more spacious.
    What’s up with Tim Horton’s? They could not get their act together all weekend. Out of food, did not know how to make any kind of special coffee and broken down equipment. The buffet and the cafe near the casino entrance did great, but always seemed short of help.
    The room was good, but the people partying in the hallway at 1:23 a.m. for 10 minutes was not cool. The hotel staff was friendly, but were way overworked in many cases.
    This is not my first Paracon here, but this has had the most issues so far. I am not the only person that noticed the issues as many of us where discussing this in between speakers and during technical difficulties.
    I think that a 3 is a fair enough score, but I believe this will be our last Paracon or any other event at Shooting Star Casino.

  300. Chuck Buzzkill Raisch say:

    Always have a good time here excellent guest service good food and I won money

  301. Desiree Stevens say:

    Can’t win n cant get into bonus on keno ..can’t hit there .. Sorry I been heading to walker northern lights n I can actually hang in n play for while .. I went to the lights 3 times the last 4-5 days .. Don’t care to play at the star to much tight machines

  302. Cheryl Blanchard Bercier say:

    On our way to this hotel tomorrow and to check out Cheap Trick. I’m hoping to be able to give the Shooting Star a good (or better) review, I’ll keep you posted and I will make sure I have evidence/pictures of anything I find negative to post (and positive of course)!
