“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We stayed here for a week during our sons wedding in the area. The staff were very friendly and wanted to meet all our needs. They went above and beyond when helping us distribute welcome bags to the wedding guests staying here. They were also very accommodating in allowing a large group to sit and talk in the lobby seating area. The rooms are extremely nice and new
The only negative is there is no swimming pool and there is a hint of smoke when you enter the lobby coming from the casino. Also it would be nice to have a coffee shop in the hotel
All in all I highly recommend this hotel if you are in the area

We stayed here for one night before taking the ferry out of Anacortes to the San Juan Islands. It was a nice, clean luxury resort. We paid a small amount extra for the bay view room which I am glad we did. It has full length doors that open to let the fresh air in with a little Juliet type balcony. Nice amenities in the room and comfortable beds. The casino is on the smaller side which we liked! It was very clean and the staff at the casino and lodge were all very helpful and friendly! We had both lunch and dinner in the Sports Bar, the food was very good and reasonable! Will definitely go back again. We want to go back next year and spend more time in the area to explore before taking the ferry to the islands!

My husband and I recently toook a trip to the Anacortes, WA area. We stayed at the Swinomish Casino & Lodge. We really enjoyed ourselves. First of all, the place was beautiful. There were couches and chairs set up by a fireplace to sit and visit or read a book on a cold, rainy day. On a warm day you can sit outside in a covered patio or have dinner outside on the patio of one of their excellent restaurants. The casino was clean and had very comfortable chairs. I loved it that the smoking and non smoking sections were separated by a lobby and another restaurant. Our room was the best part. We were on the fifth floor and the view was incredible. We really enjoyed sitting in our very comfortable chairs and watching the boats go by. If you got tired of the boats, there were beautiful mountains to see as well as clean crisp water with lots of islands everywhere. Truly beautiful! The bed was so comfy and the linens were so soft and fresh. My favorite thing was the shower. It was huge and you could just walk in and shut the glass door. I have mobility issues and not having to step over a tub is a big deal. The room was just wonderful. We could've stayed much longer than three days.
We loved our little vacation there and plan to visit at least once, maybe twice a year. We recommend this place to everyone.

Room Tip: We loved the top floor facing the bay.

Although we are not gamblers, we needed a nice place to stay for a wedding in Anacortes. Swimomosh Lodge had the only room available. What a wonderful surprise to find such a nice facility. The casino is separate so you don't hear the machine noise in the lodge and finer dining. The food, drinks and view are exquisite; like you would find in a very upscale resort. We sat on the wonderful terrace bar overlooking the bay. The staff made sure everyone was comfortable when it cooled down by turning on heaters and bringing out soft,fluffy blankets. Service was a little slow, but it looked like an unexpectedly busy evening for them and they were really trying to keep up. Our room was very nice with unusually high quality fixtures; even a Keurig coffee maker. Our only disappointment was that they would not let us check out past noon (normal is 11:00). We needed a place to get ready for the wedding, just an hour or so more and they would not budge. We would definitely return, however.

Room Tip: Ask for bay side, high floor. There are only a few balconies, but they make it so much nicer during...

We stayed there while attending an event in Anacortes. The hotel is fairly new and is a luxury resort. The room was awesome and well equipped. We were pleased to find a small fridge in the cabinet, and the huge glass shower was great. We had a room with a view of the Swinomish Channel and it was beautiful. Check-in was quick and the staff was very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the water

I couldn't believe this place---it was fabulous! What a bargain! My daughter and I stayed there as a gateway to the San Juan Islands. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Beds/pillows realy comfy.

We have stayed at Swinomish Lodge several times and each time it has been excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are lovely. The towels a large and new. There is a coffee pot with both kinds of coffee. The casino is clean and well layed out. We would certainly return to Swinomish again

Room Tip: We have occupied several different rooms and have no complaint of any of the locations
