Just returned from our third stay. If anything the accommodations and lodge service are improving with each stay. The view is outstanding. We've never even turned our Tv on while there. Just turn the chairs toward the window and watch the wildlife and incredible views for hours. The buffet is notoriously bad so we find other options for dining. The... More

We needed to take a moment and tell you that we have frequented this hotel once a month for our "monthly getaway" and each time we go, there are two especially wonderful girls working at the front desk that we felt it necessary to share how wonderful they are. Working myself in the customer service industry I know how important... More

Thank you so much for the review. As a new hotel property we've worked extremely hard to establish a high standard of service, one that immulates the warmth and hospitality that the Swinomish Tribal Community is known for.

We were upgraded to a Bay View Corner suite during our visit January 15th. It was beautiful. The evening lights and morning views were fantastic. We drank our coffee by the window and watched Mt. Baker, eagles, other soaring birds and boat traffic. Enjoyed a soak in the tub and just had a memorable evening. The Tuesday buffet wasn't bad... More

We stayed last week for a night before continuing down to the Tulalip Casino in Marysville. Front desk girl was a little dim and not too friendly, but fruit-infused water at the check-in was a nice touch. Our room was very nice, no complaints there. Gambling was so-so, not too many winners that I could see. The lady at the... More

Posted on behalf of Kurt Schwinden, Food & Beverage Manager: Thank you for your feedback.

Easy check in, the room was beautiful, the best burgers in the sports bar. Next time I will upgrade my room to a view room (so pretty up there!). I can't wait to go back! The only drawback is no pool. Gambling and drinking safe (no driving!) makes up for that!

I had visited this casino several years ago and was not all that impressed. Then I heard they had built a hotel and read some positive reviews on TripAdvisor so I decided to give it a try. I booked a King Bay View Room for a reasonable price with my AAA discount. I was very impressed when I walked in... More
