The Swinomish Lodge is new "1 year old" I think and comfortable. My wife and I stayed there and took advantage of some coupons I found on line -- $50 in gas, $20 in gaming and a phantom $25 for Food and Beverage, which to this day I do not know how it worked. Our room was clean and nice. We ate dinner in their restaurant utilizing the phantom $25 Food and Beverage Coupon, but no one could explain to us how it worked as the $25 was not credited back to the room in any way that seemed plausible. But, with that said, the food was good and the wait staff personable. It just didn't seem like the bargain that it was suppose to be. There is an outside patio area, with a view of the bay with a very large gas fireplace that warmed up the area along with the outside heaters. As with all casino's the gaming area was smoky and the smoke had a tendency to leave the gaming area. I guess if you're a die hard gambler, this would be an exceptional property, but as an individual looking for a nice room for the night, I would say it was better than good. I just want to figure out the food an beverage credit.
