This would be a great hotel if it where not for the smell of smoke. The first thing to greet you when you get on the elevator was the smell of smoke. The lobby was not to bad but there is no way i could spend any time in the casino as the smell was so bad. Its sad that... More

Based upon all the casinos I have visited over the years Bear River casino takes the prize for rudeness and terrible service. I was served frozen carrots with my dinner, notified the server and instead of offering a replacement of my side or a comp they just handed me the bill. Also their security staff likes to take their job... More

Since my last review was pretty negative I thought it only decent to give the place another try.....we were invited to a friends holiday party as part of a big group. The meals were ordered way in advance, you'd think this would give them enough time to figure out how to prepare them! Funny thing, there are artistic representations of... More

Clean, comfortable room, even if half-door on shower allows water to spill onto bathroom floor. Some residual smell of smoke emanating from casino, and some noise from other rooms. Main restaurant provides good value,with large portions of decent food at reasonable prices. Swimming pool? An over-sized bathtub, maybe. Staff was friendly and helpful at check-in, but when I called back... More

We stayed here as a one night stopping point on a road trip. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Check-in and check-out was smooth and easy. The room was warmly decorated and the bed/pillow were comfortable. We had a connecting room and I will say that I could hear people in the other room along with outside noise...I think... More

From Portland on the way to San Francisco, we talked to a police man at a rest area, he told us about this new casino hotel, we stayed there over night. Good choice, thanks to the police man. The room was new and clean, price was right. the restaurant is in the building. We had a great stay.

We stayed on a Saturday night and when we arrived, we had to drive to the far end of the parking lot, because the casino was busy, so we had to schlep all our stuff from the far end of the parking lot to get to the hotel part to check in.. When we checked in, they were very polite... More

Happy smiling staff, big quiet room and valet service made for a great night. The casino is a typical bright casino. It sits high on a hill and has far off views of the river and the ocean. Hope to return to this casino again someday.

Overall the hotel was great. It was clean, modern with a helpful staff. We were charged more than our hotels.com quote but perhaps we missed some fine print that 4 adults required an extra fee. The food was also pretty good, with a very nice breakfast. It took a long time to get our food and we almost missed our... More
