“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Stopped there two days on the road to Whidbey Harbor. Kindly upgraded in a "corner suite" with bay view -awesome room !- (thank you again). Quiet place even with the RV parking and the -single- RR nearby (you'll see a strange turning bridge), and very nice view. Kind staff. Even if you're not a gambler (casino and hotel are very well-separated), a very pleasant place to stay. Good foods but breakfast menu could be more "creative" and 13 moons restaurant could be opened Monday (we had to go to have dinner in Burlington city this evening).

Good value, excellent breakfast served at the main restaurant. Rooms are clean, you can watch the boats go by. IPA beer is served in many locations which is excellent. It is quite a small casino which is great. Three Moons has a good happy hour menu and the bartender is always friendly.

Room Tip: Always get the ocean view side, it is worth it.

We are not gamblers but we wanted a nice place to stay as we were taking the Anacortes Ferry to Victoria the next day. The rooms are beautiful (lovely bathrooms, nice products, comfortable beds, Keurig coffee maker with lots of pods) and the staff is professional, helpful and very friendly.
The quality of the art in the lobby and the rooms is excellent.
The one criticism I have is the lack of recycling bins. In this day in age and in the scenic spot the responsible thing to do is provide recycling bins in all rooms.

Room Tip: If you like a tub rather than shower you need to make sure you make arrangements when you book.

We needed a place to stay near the San Juan Islands ferry. This hotel was perfect - not right in the middle of Anacortes but an easy drive to the ferry. The rooms were very nice, and the water location was quite scenic. We enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio at sunset although the drinks were a little expensive. At least when we were there, the on-site gas station had the cheapest gas around so fill up on your way out.

Had a great mini vacation at the Swinomish. From check-in to checkout the stay was fabulous! My boyfriend and I stayed one night as a little get-away and had a great time. The rooms were clean and impressive. Beds were comfy and the room overall was incredible. Dined at 13-moons for dinner. Although on the higher price side (they do have two other places to dine) the food & service were good but the view was excellent. You can either dine inside or outside and their patio is awesome!

The rooms here are fantastic.

The outside deck off of the restaurant is amazing in the summer, with great views and live music! Oh, and the seafood buffet was well worth the price! I would be happy to stay and play here any time!

We had a great experience. :)

Room Tip: Quite a few rooms with decks that are great! Ask for a deck looking North.

I ran a golf tournament/Awards Banquet here early June and it was a great venue for this. Close to some great golf courses, nice banquet facility, really good food and great service from everyone. The casino/lodge itself has a great location as it sits overlooking Padilla Bay. The casino itself is solid as well. I enjoyed it so much I went back up last weekend with a bunch of friends and made a 3 day weekend out of it. We played some great golf courses, rented a suite plus one room at the lodge/casino and had a great time. All the rooms are very nice. Very clean, updated and half have a great view of the Bay. We had the buffet dinner each night and that was solid. 13 Moons restaurant has great food and a super deck off the back to enjoy the live music/evening. I would go back in a heartbeat.
