We visited Chinook Winds Casino Resort for my husband's birthday. We wanted to stay close to the casino, but were a little nervous due to some of the bad reviews. We stayed in Building B on the lower floor with a patio. We chose the room with the two queen beds. The beach was practically outside our door. It was... More

The Good: Nice location on the ocean, across the parking lot from the casino and near the center of town. The Bad: Cheaply updated rooms, a heater that can't maintain a reasonable temperature on a 45 degree night, terrible housekeeping staff. The rooms aren't terrible and for the $$ I suppose are okay. It's just your run of the mill... More

It's been a few years since I stayed at the resort and I was really surprised at how nice the room was. The room had been updated, new paint, new beds, carpet, curtains, TV, mini frig, microwave, coffee maker and shower. This time of year they are offering a great price for player club members, $34.99 was what we paid.... More

Just a walk across lot to casino or if raining too hard there's a complimentary shuttle as well. Oceanfront and if you use your players card at the casino you can get some awesome deals. Definitely time for a re-vamp though. Getting worn down but still good for the price. The restaurant at the hotel is delicious with ocean view... More

We stayed in the main building (not the suites building to the south where we stayed before). The room was dirty. Some of the light bulbs didn't work. The bathroom sink and tub backed up and took a long time to drain. One tissue and the box was empty. It looked like the housekeeper was in a hurry to turn... More

Do not be fooled by the name----this is a motel NOT a resort or hotel. If you arrive with expectations associated with a resort, you will be sorely disappointed as I was. However, if your expectations are for an average motel, they will be met. We arrived on a dark and rainy night and discovered that the signage directing you... More

Our resort is a large property with a Casino, Golf Course, Fitness Center and multiple Restaurants so I understand how important good signage... More

Chinook winds was surprisingly generous for being a "local" casino hotel (As opposed to a Vegas mega hotel). I am always pleased with comps in Vegas, but I never really hoped for comps out of non-Vegas casino hotels. I was extremely impressed that Chinook Winds really strives to reward their player card members with generous perks...and the staff was very... More

Location is not in Casino but by the hotel. The food is excellent and prices are very fair. We always enjoy dinner there, plus has a great view. The wait staff are wonderful and the Hostess Joyce is wonderful and friendly. If you are at Chinook winds....be sure to try out the restaurant at the Hotel.
