Too Tight For Me
The people seemed friendly enough, but everything was tight, tight, tight. Tables, slots (fun for a bit) but after an hour, we were out of money.
That's never happened in other casinos we've been to. That tells us, this casino pretty much stinks! Vacation week end, turned into vacation 8 hours. It stinks! Alot of drunks there on a friday night too. Not alot of people, just those there were smashed. A very smoky joint as well. Save your money.
We have stayed at this casino twice and will be going back in Oct. The hotel is beautiful and the customer service is excellent. They have many affordable food options and cheap drinks. They have the latest slot machines too! We won the first time there, and lost the second time; but isn't that what gambleing is all about?!? Can't wait to go back in Oct!!!
Tight machines, never go back!
I went there on a Tues night, it was a ghost town. The machines were so tight, when I lit a cig, put in a $20.00 the $20 was gone before my cig was done (takes about 5 mins for a cig) That place is a joke! I knew right then and there this casino is NOT regulated AT all! I was with 5 friends, we all tried different machines, all were the same. I guess on the reservation, they're NOT state regulated and can turn em off on on as they please? Well, lemme tel ya, they're ALL OFF! Machines are so tight there, you may as well stay home and play fake slots online, save your money. And $2.25 for a cheap beer? hahaha, yeah what ever! The bar tenders expect a tip, same with the waitresses, even though you're dumping in $20.00 bills into their machines! We'll go back there on a cold day in hell! lol
tight ghost town
long drive there and weren't prepared to lose so fast. couldn't pace ourselves cause the machines were so tight. can't play anything lower than .30, or it's a waste. put in five bucks playing .30 at a time it was gone in only one or two minutes. tried to play lower and wouldn't win, tried higher and lost 20 bucks in less than 10 minutes. in fact the rest of our evening was shot, nothing to do but go home. thought about all the things we could have done instead for the money we lost. we sure won't be going back there.
Tightest casino with no care for you
Don't go to the Danbury St. Croix Casino! Just don't even be tempted (check their ratings)
This casino has changed. It "used" to be Hole in the Wall. They tore it down and built new.
Now, the machines are so tight to pay for their new building.
They had money troubles while building.
Now, they're making up for it by being the tightest casino around (I suspect the whole 50 state area)
I've decided to stay the heck out of there. I live very close (walking distance), but would rather drive to Hurtel or Hinkley, MN casino, then to ever go back to St. Croix (old hole in the wall)
I mean, look at their star rating. 2 1/2? That is VERY telling and should be enough to warn people to stay the heck away from them!
The food prices are very high, for the quality (used to be good)
Customer service? Only a few good employees remain, the rest are so new, they haven't a clue about anything.
They lowered their employees pay from the old place and expected them to stay.
This isn't a bitter review due to my personal loss. I'm responsible for my gambling and I know that, no matter where you go.
And, I would have given them 5 stars across the board, IF it had been about the "old" Hole in the Wall.
When a person could play a slot their for about an hour before going broke.
If you bring along only $100, be prepared to be out of money in about an hour. That's on a good day.
I used to be able to play a long while (couple to a few hours), come home short, but be happy cause I, stayed awhile, met great people and had a good time. Now though, you put a $20.00 in and it's done in less then 5 minutes (I am serious)
Save your money, go to Hinkley or Hurtel (Hurtel is a very tiny casino tho)
Hope this helps you and saves you some bucks and grief!
Lose too fast
I went there tonight. I live within walking distance. In the time it took me to have a smoke while playing a slot, I lost $40.00 bucks. We're talking less then 5 minutes. Can you afford $40.00 in five minutes at .30 a pull? I can't. I went there to pass some time. It wasn't important I "win", so much as something to do for a while and socialize. Maybe an hour or two (ha, if I was lucky). There is NO time to be spent there. They'll take you're money BAM, that quick! 5 minutes, $40.00 seems to be the average, just for folks who want to play, for the sake of playing and entertainment.
Do NOT look at them for a fun evening of entertainment and gambling fun. It's a TAKE your money as quickly as possible!
Their food/buffet is sporadic. One day it's good, the next garbage. It's costly (except for the gamblers buffet) Just be sure to call ahead.
Like I said, I know, because I live within walking distance of this place. Since they changed from the old Hole in the Wall Casino, they've gone downhill LOADS and could give a crap less about their patrons! Beware!
Beautiful new hotel. Price for a room was under $50 for 2 adults. Great indoor pool and hot tub. Was really surprised at the quality of the food in the main restaurant. Nicely prepared, reasonably priced and it was good! Lots of options with the Dining room, buffet, deli, ect. onsite. Hotel room was awesome. Big Rooms! Big Bathrooms! Great comfy mattresses on the beds. Mini kitchens too. If you enjoy casinos, hiking in remote areas, seeing numerous lakes, fishing, etc., this may be the place for you! I know that my husband and I will be back. So very peaceful and relaxing. Casino is not loud like others we've been to. While there are not a ton of gambling games (around 400), they are all the newest that can be found. Didn't win any money, but with all of the penny machines, the money lasted pretty long.
A great place to visit!
Two of us went to the casino the first weekend they were open to see it and have the buffet. The smoke smell was terrible in the casino area. In the dining area, first the table they took us to needed to be wiped off. Then, when we finished our salads, the waitress took those plates, and we went to get our main course. We had two glasses of water and two glasses of pop on the table along with clean napkins we had taken previously so we wouldn't have to pick up more. We got back to the table and our pop and water and everything else was gone and the table was washed off! I found someone and told her that everything had been removed from our table while we went to get the main course. It took our waitress 20 MINUTES before she came back with pop and water to replace what had been removed. We had only had a couple of sips of each when it was taken, but when she finally brought new water and pop, she only filled the glasses half full and it was obvious that she was ticked off that she had to do that much. I watched and everyone else she brought drinks to had full glasses, not half glasses like ours. We were afraid to go together to get additional food for fear they would take what we weren't finished with again.
Although the pasta dishes on the salad bar were very good, there were hardly any vegetable choices for the main course and all they had for desserts were miniature cheesecakes and a few slices of apple pie. It looked like they may have had a frozen custard machine, but it wasn't on.
The next weekend I met another friend from Minneapolis there because she wanted to see the place. Again, it was very, very smoky and the employees were rude. I'm not much of a player, but she likes to go so I decided to play a little. I had run out of bills, but found $4 worth of quarters in the bottom of my purse. I took them to the cashier, she got very snippy and said, "We don't deal in change. We don't have a change machine." Since she'd acted really nasty when she said it, I said, "You mean you can't count out $4 worth of quarters?" Then she snapped and said she'd do it but she wasn't supposed to. There were several people behind me who heard this exchange and the friend I was with commented on how nasty the woman was to me.
We saw a no smoking room with machines in it and went to check it out. It was very, very small and actually smelled more of smoke than the large outer area. We had sandwiches at the deli section and I found the prices to be terribly high (over $5 for a sandwich that just had tomato, mozzarella cheese, and a few basil leaves on it) and the food wasn't that good. When we left, my friend and I went to another casino and she said she would never return to the Hole in the Wall in Danbury. I can see why they were nearly bankrupt before. If they don't get decent employees, they won't make it with this new building either. We went to a tiny place outside Hertel where they were friendly and we had a good time.
Hole in your wallet!
I lost all my money in this casino,Its very tighttttttt.........Me and my husband were both broke in a hour........I hope you have better luck then us and don't leave with a hole in your wallet at the Hole in the wall......
