my family stayed at black bear casino /motel in august 2011. we enjoyed our stay very much,the food was great and very reasonably pricedas was the room.great location for shopping in duluth.nice arcade and pool area for kids as i had two with me.pool side rooms are noisy so get a suite by the pool less noise and more room to move also comes with a pullout couch and 2beds..will definetly go back to this place ,the room rates are greatly priced...and very clean&comfortable.the casino is nice also..

Room Tip: new rooms are the best.but not close to the pool...if you want poolside get the suite its less noisy...

We wanted a nice getaway and we found it. The Hotel entrance was not marked on the building at all, but it wasn't hard to figure out either. Upon check-in there was a line of people but it moved fairly quick. The check-in clerk was very nice and explained everything we needed to know. We even got coupons for dollars off on food and $5 in cash for becoming a players card member. When I made the reservation, they only had smoking rooms left. I booked two rooms hoping the smell would be okay. I was thrilled that both rooms were very nice and the smell wasn't bad at all. It was a lot better than the casino floor, and after just a few minutes we didn't really smell it at all. We were not spending much time in the room except to sleep anyway. We were in the tower on the 5th floor. We ate at the buffet for dinner and breakfast. No complaints here. If you didn't get full it was your problem. No brosted chicken on the dinner buffet but the prime rib was great! When ever I had a question the staff everywhere at this casino was nice and friendy like they really wanted to help you. I've been to Vegas a lot over the years and I told my wife while riding in the elevator, that this place reminds me a little bit like being in Vegas. It was really fun. We gambled all evening long (5 hours) and I only lost $25 and My wife just $21. Not bad for a great evening of fun. The casino even had a promotion going on that night where anyone on the casino floor could win $250 to $1500 all night long. We saw a lot of winners and even two people won $1500 each. This made our night very exciting with anticipation even if we didn't win it was still fun. We would go back again and stay in a heartbeat.

This Casino was about 20 minutes from Duluth, MN so we rented the room and spent most of our days seeing tourist attactions in Duluth and up the North Shore. We spent the nights gambling and the mornings playing in the pool / hot tub. The room had 2 big beds and a big TV in 1 section and then a pull out couch and a TV in another section. Typical cramped hotel room style but a pretty good layout. Perfect for a family. Very cheap prices for the room/suite poolside. The staff was excellent. The Casino had many different games to play. They also had a game room for the kids. All in all, a good, cheap stay!

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are great. 2nd floor is less noisy and still very accessable.

The hotel has a newer tower with above average rooms that are very close to the casino but are a long way from the pool and a parking garage that is about a 10 minute walk through the casino and past the convention center.There is a below average buffet that has a smoking area next to the food area.The steak house is over priced and there is a very small deli next to the bingo that is also very smokey, with a limited menu, reasonably priced with decent sandwiches,bugers and pizza.The casino has a large assortment of slot machines,a black jack area and a small poker area.There is a decent golf course that is overpriced compared to many other great courses available in northern Minnesota.

Room Tip: if you intend to use the pool or have childen I recomend staying in the orginal hotel it has easy ac...
