Hotel is great and grounds are beautiful - hotel overlooks a pretty lake and mountains, restaurants are good, BUT Casino Apache is nasty, nasty. I would rate the Hotel high, but this review is about the Casino. STRONG odors greet you before you enter - warning you away - I should have listened! We fought on and entered casino and... More

While I didn't use the casino for gaming the facility is "state of the art" and very well put together. There is plenty of art and Native american history at this facility to enjoy.

The entire hotel and casino is just too smoky for anyone sensitive to tobacco smoke. This is a stereo typical casino with all of the characters, older folks with walkers, down on their luck types, etc. Not up to par with the nice casinos in Vegas for sure.

Nice casino, located on one end of a busy travel center. We were surprised at the size of it, expecting it to be smaller than it really is. We won some, we lost some...but we had a good time!

Nothing different from any other roadside casino. I've been several times but mainly go for the food at the little restaurant now.

The staff were anything but friendly. They all looked like zombies with blank looks on their faces, no reactions, no "small talk", very dull. There is no alcohol near tables or games!! Serious? If I'm going to lose money, let me at least get a buzz. The casino is also very small, one can circle around in 3 min. In... More
