A nice pitstop on the way to Yosemite. Who knew a sports bar in a bowling alley in the basement of a casino near Sonora would have great fish tacos ? I found the casino staff and patrons friendly. The room was good.

What a nice surprise! I usually do not like to stay at casinos, however, this was an exception. The casino is detached from the hotel. Very easy to get in and out of. The hotel lobby is very spacious and welcoming. They staff could not be more accommodating. The room with king size bed was the size of a suite.... More

Our two day and one night stay was so very comfortable. Hotel rooms were very clean and bed comfortable. The Three Sisters restaurant on third floor dinner served us with 4 star meals and excellent service. The bowling alley and lounge on lower floor helped pass our time in between gambling sessions. The outdoor surroundings are very well maintained. Employees... More

My wife lost our allocated slot money in about 30 minutes although my brother got a good machine that had good play for about an hour and he walked away with more than he started with. We ate dinner at the Black Oak Café and the food and service were excellent.

Family outing very nice and relaxing. They great ribeye steak with salad bar for $14.99. I enjoy the bowling alley when I am tired of gambling and regal movie theater is about 5miles from the casino. I love the trees reminds me of Santa Cruz, certain areas.

The casino does have a non-smoke area and a plus to them for that. The location is good for people living in or near the mother lode part of California. My wife won $100 playing the penny slots and that was good.

After having a wonderful brunch at the cafe we used our cards we had received as newly joined members which were frontloaded with $25.00 each for play at certain slots, we found the slots that qualified. My pin number was wrong, so I used real money, but my best girl hit a winner with their money, then just minutes later... More
