“I hate casinos.”

Chinook Winds Casino & Convention Center
Attraction details
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Smoky. Loud. Full of gamblers staring blindly at their machines. If you like casinos, this will be the place for you. If you don't, avoid it at all cost. We had to go because my office Christmas party was held there. Food was okay. I will try to avoid ever going again.

Employess are friendly and helpful. Buffet food is as good as Spirit Mountain casino but, unfortunately, just as expensive.

Employees are constantly cleaning and straightening up slot areas that are not in use so you can be pretty sure that the next slot you sit at won't be grimy or have cigarette butts in the cigarette trays.

Smoke smell is bad no matter what time of day you're in the casino but Spirit Mountain Casino air quality is no better.

Chinook Winds has more variation of slot games than Spirit Mountain. Chinook also has a snack bar where you can order grilled or fried items as well as salads and desserts.

I like Chinook Winds so much better than Spirit Mountain that I don't even stop at Spirit Mountain on my way to the coast.

Hope you have as a good experience as I have.

Even the non-smoking section is smoky, there's no walls/doors separating these two sections so no escape from cigarette stink. Investing in a new HVAC system might improve things greatly. I haven't been here in a few years but really nothing has changed. The casino floor is jam packed with so many machines you can't move around easily. There's no ventilation, especially in the back, and it gets very warm, stuffy and the smoke gets very thick.
Don't think I'll be returning to this casino when there are several others in Oregon that do a much better job.

They really need to expand their non-smoking section, and invest in smoke removal for the main floor. It was just BAD. Finally won some money here, but not really happy with snotty female bartender on the main floor. Enjoyed our visit to Fathoms restaurant above - great staff up there! Valet staff were very hard workers!
