“The no smoking area is a joke!!!”

“The no smoking area is a joke!!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Unless you are a smoker this casino is HORRIBLE. It's amazing that they continue to cater so well to the small segment of the population who have no respect for the lives and health of others. They tell you that they have installed all this fancy stuff they takes all the smoke away from the non smoking area but in reality it provides an environment with only slightly less smoke than having someone sitting next to you blowing smoke in your face. They also have smokers lighting up all over the non smoking area (or they did when I was there) and when you say anything about it the staff just says "they aren't supposed to do that." I was unable to stay for more than a few minutes (not even enough time to do any gambling) before I was so overwhelmed by the smoke in the "smoke free" area that I had to leave. There really is no such thing as a 100% smoke free area in ANY facilty that allows smoking, anyone saying otherwise is lying.

Thanks for posting a review and sharing your feedback from your visit with Northern Quest Resort & Casino.

While our state-of-the-art non-smoking gaming area features positive air-pressure and auto-close doors, it is disappointing to hear you found the air quality below satisfaction. We are always working to improve the experience of our entire property and appreciate you brining your concerns with the non-smoking area to our attention. We hope you will give us another try and that your next visit with us is enjoyable.

Reviewed January 23, 2013

A huge, clean casino that (unfortunately) allows smoking. Has a large nonsmoking area and poker room.

Thanks for visiting our property and posting a review!
It is great to hear about your visit and that you enjoyed the non-smoking poker room. While the majority of our casino does allow smoking, our hotel and dining venues are all smoke-free. The casino lounges are an exception, but we do have the Fireside lounge located in our hotel lobby which is also 100% smoke free.
We hope to have you again as our guest and that all your future visits are fully enjoyable!

“A great stop in the Spokane area.”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Being from Tucson, where we have 4 casinos, we thought we'd stop at Northern Quest for an overnight break on our way to Priest Lake, Idaho. Friends had been there before and liked it, so we figured it should be pretty good. We were right. Very, very nice rooms, a great variety of places to eat and both smoking and smoke-free gaming areas. Arriving later in the day, we ate in the Q, which is a sports bar atmosphere and the food was great. Everything was tasty and reasonably priced and if I remember right, there were daily specials. In the casino, where others may have had bad luck at the tables or machines, we were very lucky and did very well at both. Keep in mind folks, this is gambling, not everyone is going to walk away a winner. Enjoy the experience you have while being there. Our experience was great! Both my wife and I look forward to going back this next year for a longer stay.
