Having visited several casinos in California and Las Vegas over the years, The Chumash is by far my favorite. Staff at both the casino hotel and the Hotel Corque are outstanding, from lower level to the Executive Hosts. They apparently have an excellent training program for all employees as EVERYBODY you encounter treats you like they are truly glad to have you there, and are eager to assist with any requests or questions.
The buffet is reasonable, and always very good, and offers a wide selection. I wish they offered a breakfast buffet as well as the lunch and dinner offerings.
The cafe is open 24 hrs and offers an excellent choice of breakfast, lunch and dinner items, also at very reasonable prices.
As for the gambling, the player rewards and comps are very good. Also, you get a fair shot at winning with the large choice of machines and the fact that they don't clip you on your winnings when you do win, as is happening at so many other Indian and Vegas casinos. The Chumash pays the full odds on machine payoffs , whereas other casinos I have visited are skimming up to 25% off the top on payouts.
In summation, I feel like a valued guest/customer at the Chumash , and not just another pocket to pick. I go there a lot , and the rooms at both places are excellent, and staffs at both are top notch.
