We usually end our working vacation in Minnesota with a night (or at least a stop) at the Ho-Chuck casino in Baraboo. Sometimes we even will stop on the way up to Minnesota to stretch our legs. (Basically Mother- in- Law likes the slot machines.)
We have stayed several times at the casino on Saturday or Sunday nights but this time check in was worse than normal. It was almost an hour from when we arrived to when we were able to enter our room. That is way too long!!!!!
Waiting for drinks at the casino bars took forever! It was a Saturday night, they need to hire some staff to accommodate the thirsty people. I wanted a couple of drinks but gave up after waiting for just one.
When I got my rewards card from the service center (been a year since my last visit so my card did not work) they slaughtered my name even though she had my drivers license when she put the info in.
On the plus side I finished up $40 and Mother in Law was up $100 so we took the money and went to bed at 1:30am.
We had our standard two queen beds in a regular room.
The room comes with a mini fridge, coffee maker and little bar type sink by the entry door. The television stations are very limited but we were not in the room much.
The bathroom is a little small but my largest gripe is that they do NOT provide conditioner. The last couple of years they offer shampoo but no conditioner. And I never remember this until I am getting into the shower. Its the little things that can make or break a stay. Trying to tug through snarled hair does not make me a happy person…
I love the front lobby area, with the waterfall and taxidermy work. But after this stay I am not so sure I need to stay again. Way too long to check in when there was not really much of a line at 9:30 pm, and it was all the off little things that made it a not so perfect stay.
It looked like they were under staffed and rushed everywhere we went. The room was not cheap and it was not a relaxing stay.
