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

We planed on playing the 10:15 am morning Texas holdem tournament. After being knocked out of the tournament I sat down outside in... 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

Stayed 2 nights the middle of August and the 'resort' rooms were not bad!! Both my wife and I would definitely prefer a bed that didn't feel like you were sleeping on bricks (seriously hard bed). We were tucked away in the furthest which wouldn't have been bad, but that is where the entrance to where cars are brought up... More

The resort is clean and neat. food excellent, the Willows restaurant as good as I have been to. The buffet changes everyday so there are always great new things. The entertainment was great, as they had ESPN fights, and boy were they great, I was happy to be a part of it.
