We spent one night here as we traveled north from San Francisco. Having made no reservation, I'm sure we paid a premium price for our deluxe king room. But the woman who checked us in could not have been more efficient and professional (despite being interrupted by a guest with a strange microwave request...). She suggested that we join the...

Wow. Impressed. Customer service, including housekeeping and security, very friendly and welcoming. Literally, your greeted by all. Room is very nice. Large selection of channels on TV. Casino very clean and has non smoking section. Only saw 2 restaurants, one a quickee and the other more sit down. Food moderately priced. Ate at the quickee (express) and had a blue... More

We picked this Hotel/Casino because we did a mini road trip and like to gamble. Not a whole lot of hotels in the area, read the reviews and after booking Bear River we had second thoughts, but we still kept our plans. Yes this Casino did have a smoky smell and they are replacing the air system and doing some... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here after a very long day in the car. This was a pit stop on the way to San Francisco and I am so happy we stopped here! Even at the absurdly late hour we arrived, the staff were very pleasant and moved the process along quickly. When we went to the room... total surprise.... More

For the price and accommodations, I would definitely recommend this place. I had price checked a room with 2 queen sized beds in the area with other hotels and they were charging a lot more. Plus they were run down with a lot of shady people for the area. Now this being a casino, I;m not saying that there aren't... More

This hotel is an excellent value in this area. The price was great and the rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. You also have entertainment for the evening and are in a convenient location to all the attractions of the area. I'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Bear River on our way to and from Oregon. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel staff is warm and friendly. Convenient elevator access from the garage to the rooms. Easy access to and from the highway. Great views of the valley and fog in the mornings since it's built on top of a hill. Comfortable beds.... More

We were on the way from Yosemite to San Fran via the Avenue of the Giants and the Bear River Casino Hotel was a natural stop over spot. There were alterations underway in the Casino area but that didn't intrude into the main hotel. The hotel is pretty new and our rooms were great - roomy, well lit, spacious bathroom,... More

It was oké for a night sleep. No fridge or micro wave in the room. Staf was friendly. Room was big and clean, shower floor was a bit slippy. Bed was comfortable. Not mutch to do in the area accept gambeling in the hotel casino. Coffee was very plain.

We wanted a place to stay near Redwoods State Park so we chose this hotel. Oh, how the map made it look so close--30 minutes by car. Overall we really liked this place.
