All rooms are new (at reasonable rates - about $100. per night slightly off season as the before Memorial Day). No breakfast is provided but there is a good restaurant on site having decent prices - about $10. dollars for breakfast.

My husband and I went for a relaxing meal. Immediate service was very good. Once our order was taken 4 other tables came in and were served promptly. That's where it goes down hill. Each of those 4 tables got their meals before us and we even had to ask for ours. The only thing piping hot were the fries....

The property has recently been updated, which from what i saw, was mostly everything. The rooms have had a nice change, they are comfortable, modern, and clean. The casino seems alright, but i didnt see anyone winning.

The hotel at Grand Portage is very nice and very welcoming. I am pleased with rooms, our room was a conjoined room but it was very nice. The beds are comfy and the tv was nice to all HD channels. I am so happy to say the pool was just updated recently and it is so nice but not very...

Stopped in for a quick look and ended up a winner. Nice location with machines and a small blackjack area. Newer lodge also has been added. On your travels on the north shore, take a look at what this place has to offer if you are so inclined!!

This casino is small but has worldly charm. We stayed in the newly updated rooms....and they were very nice. Also, we ate at the restaurant and that was very good as well, a little slow but it was very good. We gambled and had drinks well into the night. It was fun. I would definatley go back. Would completely recommend...

This review is for the casino portion of Grand Portage Lodge & Casino, as I only visited the casino and did not stay in the hotel. I arrived here on a Saturday night to find the parking lot almost completely full, mostly with Ontario plates. To be honest, I don't understand why people from Thunder Bay flock to this place....

The Jacuzzi room was beautiful and updated. Beautiful lakeside room on the 3rd floor was nice and quiet. The downfall to this beautiful upgraded motel casino is allowing the indoor smoking. When you walk into the front door which is next to the casino, it's like a cloud of smoke. I am a smoker and I had to leave the...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay here! Unfortunately, at the time of your visit, the new air exchange system that we installed during the renovation was not completed and fully operational. The good news is that it has since been finished and there is now air being forced up through the casino floor that pushes any...
