“Great Casino Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We stayed here two nights. The lobby is inviting (and the bears at the fountain outside are cute.) The room was very comfortable with two queen beds. I liked the seperation from the bathroom and the sinks. We received food and casino vouchers and of course the casino voucher paid for the food, but it is a very nice casino - smoke is at a minimum and lots of low cost poker slots - no carp table though. We were with a group that arrived late the first evening and every thing was ready for us and the rooms were close to each other. Our room was directly off the elevator and yet was very quiet. A good place to stay on the way to Yosemite. The restaraunt and buffett were both good, and reasonable with good service.

Easy to find. Be aware that it is a one and a half hour drive to Yosemite up a tree lined winding road from this hotel, so if you want to spend time in the park, find somewhere which is closer.
We sampled the evening buffet...lots of choice, soft drink included in the $15. You have to walk through the casino to access all of the 'eateries' but smoke is at a minimum.
Comfortable, spacious room with TV, fridge, safe, and of course the yellow rubber duck in the bathroom!
Inside/outside swimming pool.

We had to attend a wedding in Oakhurst so we decided to try the Chukchansi casino. What a surprise. It was a very pleasant experience. We went at the end of August when it was very hot. The casino and the rooms were very comfortable. Speaking of the rooms, they were larger than most and we had the most comfortable beds compared to most places we have stayed. The restaurants were great and having valet parking was a plus. Staff couldn't have been nicer. It was a great experience and we would do it again in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Watch out for views of air conditioning units instead of mountain views

We decided at 9 to leave to chuckchansi for the night. If you book Sunday through Thursday for $119.00 You get $40 to spend on slots. The service was great gave us good directions to Yosemite even though we checked in at 1 a.m. The room was clean and spacious comparable to and Vegas hotel. Buffet was pricey but amazing if you can stay in it all day. $80.00 for four of us but amazing food. The little diner was greatly priced with good food. We went up to Yosemite from Chuckchansi it is an hour drive to the Valley of Yosemite. Beautiful drive worth it.

Stayed one night at this hotel on the way back from Yosemite and found it average. Please ensure that you make a reservation well in advance because the walk in rate is $170 a nite during the month of August. Didn't try the restaurants or buffets inside the casino, but did enjoy some nearby restaurants.

Rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. My only complaint was the pile of linen left in the hallway as we checked in around 4pm, and the costly summer rate. Next time, I'll try the Best Western down the road.

We decided to stay here as the first stop on our trip to Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes just a few weeks ago. We were here for just a night. The place itself is easy to find and in a great location just into the foothills. The property is self is very beautifully maintained with somewhat a rustic mountain feel to it. We stayed in the new tower and enjoyed our room, as the bed and furnishings were all good quality. Bathroom was very nice with granite counters, brass fixtures, and a fun little ruber ducky coming with the toiletries.

This was the 1st time we had stayed at a reservation casino. It was amazing how it felt like Vegas in the casino. There appear to be plenty of buses from various valley locations cinstantly droppIng people off.

We didn't try the restaraunts so I can't comment on that but there seemed to be many choices. Took my daughter to the pool area. It is beautifully done with an indoor/outdoor pool setup. You can tell they are trying to model it like Vegas with cabanas and an outdoor bar.

Overall a great experience. I would definitely stay here again given the value compared to Yosemite Valley accommodation rates. I wasn't to far north from Fresno (25 min) and about 45 min to Yosemite.
