We decided to skip staying on the strip in Eureka and hit this place instead. Rate was great - $85 for a king room. Rooms were huge, clean and quite modern. Staff was friendly. We had dinner in the main restaurant and it was fine. All in all a good choice.

This was just an overnight stopping point on a trip up the coast. The rooms were nice and it had a pool which was important for the kids. The front desk offered us a choice of room locations which was a nice gesture. The only strange thing was the shower. It was sleek and modern looking but lacked a complete... More

Decided to try out this casino/hotel as we like the area and needed to get away for a couple of days. Hotel staff were extremely nice. The check in guy, I think his name was Tim, was very helpful. Casino was nice size for Northern California. Room was quiet and very clean. View from restaurant was great. Wife said this... More

Rooms are good and spacious. Can be a little noisey in corridors as players retire. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Food in restaurant is great quality and fantastic value for money. If you like a little gamble even better.

We celebrated my friend's 55 birthday here last night. Started out in the bar, then sat in the hot tub, then headed to the restaurant for their pasta night, (Very good) then some in our party headed for the casino. Other than the casino being filled with cigarette smoke, everything was delightful! We had a great time!

Restaurant was nice, Tuesday night prime rib excellent. The hotel was nice but ask for a Valley view. Service was okay depending on where you're at in the building. But when you go into the casino it has a serious smoke problem, and if you go into the bar it's far worse. And it's the only casino I know of... More
