Been gaming here for years, rooms great, seems clean. only complaint is there building Fund$ program has caused them to tighten down the machines , now extremely to tight, very tight, it would be normal to see 12 to 15 jackpots a 6 hour night , great right!! Now 2 to 3 . If lucky, so be ware slot players.... More

My husband and I are frequnt guests at the Chumash hotel. We alway look forward to being greeted and served by Hope, the evening supervisor. She is delightful and always gracious. She makes us feel be genuinely welcome. She and the rest of the hotel staff work hard to meet our needs. We have always found our room to be... 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.

I have been "visiting" the Chumash casino about 4 to 5 times a year since it opened. However, last week was the first time I stayed overnight, and it certainly won't be my last. From the fast, easy, and very friendly check-in to check-out, it was truly an enjoyable experience. The room was clean and nicely furnished with a well-stocked,... More

On the surface it looks okay. Look a little closer, see what we saw. Amazing condition for a place that spouts 4 star rating. The linens were clean, that seemed to be it. Appears that management does not have anyone inspecting the rooms for true cleanliness. There really is NO excuse for a 'recently renovated room' to be in this... More

The highlight of this stay has been the personalized service extended by the hotel staff notably Mr. Nino Martinez. They were extremely courteous and conscious of each guest's individual needs. Room service staff made the room like it was my own.

We love staying at Chumash Casino Resort for many reasons. The top reason is the treatment we receive from Cynthia Cosio at the front desk. The minute we arrive, which is only about once a month, we are greeted with smiles and a warm welcome. How does she remember us with all the guests she greets each day? Obviously, it's... More
