Nice hotel, very helpful staff. Restaurants were very good and the cafe was well priced. Great place to get away from the city and enjoy some relaxing time. Casino is decent for its size and the players club perks are nice.

Staying at the hotel and so far the food has proven to be of poor quality, the rooms although nicely decorated have paper thin walls and the staff is less than courteous. It is sad because there is so much potential for this establishment, but they have too many issues.

Stayed here on business, second floor. Very roomy king size bedroom. Bed was comfy. Room was clean. However, I wish they would put a comfortable desk chair in the room. It gets uncomfortable sitting in the upright dining chairs at the desk for a stretch of time. Coffee maker in room was a little disgusting (dirty) but other than that,... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations. This area didn't give you many good choices for hotels but this one would stand out in any area. Room was very large with comfortable seating, beautifully decorated. Queen size beds with quality mattress and sound proof walls guaranteed a good night's rest. The staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent food, at reasonable prices and... More

Room rate was Ok, the 15% discount being a 'players club' member helped.....While the wife was out shopping and visiting i stayed and watched college football in the lounge downstairs. A little off the beaten path, but you avoid the worst of the fog and travelers that frequent McKinleyville and Arcata.

House keeping does a real good job of cleaning the room. In my opinion it's a little overpriced for a hotel and compared to other Casino Hotels it's way over priced. You can spend thousands of dollars gambling and the casino Will Not comp you a hotel room. Not the place to go to if you feel like Playing and... More

After driving for hours & passing Indian casinos that looked like they were out of trailers, this casino & hotel surpassed our expectations. The rooms were clean & all the employees were very nice.
