This was our first time here. Wasn't too impressed. Casino was on the smaller scale. Didn't find the large chair machines w/ the speakers built in to the headrest. No Wheel of Fortune that we could tell. And it was "dry" no bar nor poker machine bar. I couldn't even buy a beer at the little cafe for sandwiches and... More

He upgraded our room and made sure our visit was wonderful. He is great at what he does. Has wonderful customer service skills and is always very helpful and pleasurable... More

Normally I love the casino and hotel.... but with everything blocked off and very narrow coridors, it is hard to get through and other patrons are so pushy... my husband and I, once in the casino had a blast. We won a little and headed out. Looking forward to the construction being over.

My sister and I stayed here the night before a half marathon race in May. The Positives: The room and bathroom were nice, clean, very comfortable size-wise. Went for a dip in the hot tub before bed which was relaxing. Got a good night sleep. The Negatives: Had to walk through the casino (gross! smoky!) to get to cafe restaurant.... More

Very Average. I was really expecting something big and fabulous and only found a very average casino with the non smoking section in banquet rooms. I didn't stay at the hotel so I can not say what the rooms are like. I also did not see any restaurants except a little sandwich shop in one of the banquet rooms.

I wish I could rate this place higher. I strongly suggest anyone who plans on staying here to stay at the sister property about 10 minutes away in Solvang. There is a free shuttle running at all hours that will take you to and from the casino. The chumash resort is very isolated and doesn't offer much of anything other... More
