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

Whomever decorated this hotel did an outstanding job. I feel as though I am surrounded by luxury. The beds and pillows are perfect, very comfortable. The... More

Not hip on the smoke filled casino but the spa is really nice. Very quaint and quiet. The staff is ultra friendly. I had a 1 hr massage with reflexology and was highly pleased with my service. My technician was friendly, not too chatty. The locker room/showers are clean but lack that "spa feeling", I'm not really hip on florescent... More
