Harrah's Ak-Chin Casino Resort

This is a gem for anyone visiting the Phoenix area, despite it being out in the desert. I have stayed here many times and never regret it.

The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are elegant. The food, first-class. The pool and hot tub...outstanding.

What makes this property great is two things. First, the fact that you don't even have to see the Casino if you don't want to as it is in another part of the building, away from (but not far) the hotel. Secondly, the people make it wonderful. You are greeted each and every time by the desk staff with a wonderful smile that makes this hotel feel like home.

I HIGHLY recommend this hotel. If you don't mind a 20 minute drive into Phoenix, you will NOT be sorry.

We just returned from Harrah's Au Kin resort and casino near Phoenix, AZ.
It was awesome! The standard room itself was amazing with a private balcony, tub and shower in the bath, and all the amenities such as coffee maker and hairdryer.
The pool was very long and sparkling clean. Their was a bar in the pool with underwater barstools and mists to keep you cool. Free towels were yours to use in case you forgot your own.
The casino was also nice, and we won a little bit. The Ranch buffet was very good at lunch and dinner. The Agava restaurant was delicious and surprisingly well priced.
All of the workers were extremely nice and it was just a great time all around. I highly recommend it!

Stayed here for two nights, once on the way to Tucson and once on the way back as we were on a touring holiday from the UK. There was three of us myself my wife and our 13 year old son. This was our third touring holiday to the west and this hotel was the best of any hotel we have stayed in. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a balcony over looking fields which was excellent. The room was large with 2 queen beds and a huge patio door, the bathroom had a seperate shower with glass door which was spotless and there was also a coffee machine with plenty of coffee. The pool area was fantastic with a swim up bar which we used on both visits, great drinks and our son loved the strawberry smoothy topped with cream!!
This is a good place to relax and bring your children as the casino is seperate from the hotel, so our son did not have to go in at all, except to go to the gift shop and the snack bar( all soft drinks were free!!) It cost us $60 a night ( double at weekends) which was well worth it. The only thing about this place is there is nothing else to do except swim and gamble but if thats what you want, your in paradice!!!!!!!!!

We stayed here 01/27/05 thru 01/31/05 (4 nights). The location is very secluded but the town of Maricopa is close by for everything you might need. What struck us most was the people who worked here. Everyone (checkin, valet, restaurant, casino) was very, very pleasant. The room was excellent and we enjoyed the balcony. There are only two floors and I recommend the second floor. The rooms are easy to get to via the pool area. Housekeeping was very good. The gift shop seemed to be open all of the time. The casino has plenty of variety with slots and table games. The limits at the tables varied so everyone could afford to play. Definitely use the valet parking. It is free to guests but do tip the valet. If there is a negative, the TV channels are limited on their cable. No HBO, but they do have Pay-To-View. We would definitely stay here again.

If you are in the Phoenix area on business or pleasure, you will want to try out Harrah's (AK CHIN) Hotel and Casino. It is just a short drive south of Phoenix. The hotel rooms are huge and have either gorgeous views of the desert or the pool area. And speaking of the pool area, it can't get any better. It is huge and has a swim up bar with several stools. Housekeeping is the best I have experienced and we travel often. Wonderful choice for a few days R&R or business.

We had played at Harrah's Ak-Chin before, but this is the first time we stayed in one of their rooms. We were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious and clean. The best part of our stay was the excellent staff. From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out, everyone was extremely professional and helpful. We also had a chance to use the pool early Saturday morning and we thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing time there.

My favorite spot for a great get-a-way for a few days. The pool and spa are refreshing. We enjoy having a room overlooking the pool area where we can sit on the balcony with breakfast ordered from room service. The rooms are large and airy and well cared for. The staff have all been very polite and helpful.I've recommend this hotel/casino to several friends who have also enjoyed staying there.
