The 4 Bears Casino & Lodge in Newtown, North Dakota is planning to begin a major renovation and to build a new 7-story hotel tower. The Casino located on the western shore of Lake Sakakawea between Minot and Williston in New Town, N.D. got its start as a motor lodge in the 1970s with only 40 rooms. In 1993 the Casino was added followed by various expansions and improvements over the years, including restaurants, an event center, marina, RV park, water park, convenience store/car wash/liquor store and River Willow gaming boat. The $95 million project plans to start with the demolition of the existing 2-story hotel, and start new construction of 108,000 square feet with 20,200 square feet of renovation for the new 7-story hotel. Upon completion, 4 Bears Casino & Lodge will have 264 rooms. The new hotel tower will add 90 guest rooms, gaming, offices, and a sports bar with a dining room and gaming stations. The extensive project also features a 7th-floor ballroom, meeting rooms and a fine dining steakhouse. The addition will also include a new Sakakawea Spa with couples’ massage, a gift shop, fitness room, and a hair, nail and pedi salon. The project also plans to upgrade the property’s entrance lobby and 1st floor kitchen. The casino is owned by The MHA Nation, chaired by Mark Fox. Kraus-Anderson is overseeing construction led by project manager, George Trujillo. Construction of the new hotel tower will begin in June 2023 and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2025.
