“Excellent place.”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

I only have one beef about the time we spent there. The dinner buffet was horrible as all one got was leftovers from lunch. Absolutely gross. Stay away from it. The Asian restaurant was excellent. Lots of food and delicious. We were only there for a couple of days so didn't get to check out the other dining options on site.

My boyfriend and I had a special occasion, and I wanted to find a place that offered not only nice accommodations,but entertainment, spa and good food. I chose the Silver Reef and it met each and every one of our needs. From the moment we arrived the staff was outstanding and helpful. We ate at the "The Steakhouse" and it was the most amazing steak I have had in Whatcom County. The wine they suggested to compliment the meal was delicious. We would recommend the Silver Reef Hotel Casino and "Spa" if your looking for any of the above. We will definitely be back!!!

I was totally impressed with the great friendly service and super clean rooms. We were in town for a movie premier and stayed there because it was convenient and a great price. To my surprise it was worth twice the price we paid. I am so pleasantly surprised and still smiling. Special thanks to Randi the head of Cust Services for making the weekend so much fun and so special!

Room Tip: Any room facing the Puget Sound- SPECTACULAR SUNSETS!

About a month ago, friend had money stolen from her room while she dined in their restaurant. Staff was unable to offer any help.
Last night in the Casino, I heard a man saying he had lost $220 from his room. My friend compared notes with him and it sounded that his story was exactly the same(money stolen from suitcase).
Security in the rooms appears to be an afterthought.
This is obviously an ongoing problem that could be solved by management(safes in the room).

Room Tip: Don't leave valuables in your room.

I really enjoy this hotel. The rooms are so comfortable. They are spacious enough, with nice bathrooms, but best of all - the beds are so comfortable. I've never had a bad sleep here. Also, I find the staff to be very helpful and kind. If you are a gambler, and have one of their loyalty cards, you can sometimes get a discounted room rate (or even a free one). Also, you will get a voucher for a basic breakfast in the morning....a nice perk.

Thank you so much for your review on TripAdvisor.com. We agree, the beds are probably the best in the market. Here's a secret: Next time, stop by the Front Desk at the Hotel or upon checkout, ask them where you can buy a new one directly from the manufacturer we use.

Thanks again!

This was our first stay at the Silver Reef and it definitely won't be our last! We went for a quick shopping trip and stayed 1 night. Check in was quick and easy, the Pizzeria was fantastic! The room was clean and spacious. We were on the 3rd floor, and if you over look the rooftop below, there is a nice view! Casino got a bit too smokey, but there is a little smoke free area, which was great! The staff at the front desk were efficient and friendly. Actually all the staff we had any interactions with were all very nice. The hotel is about 5 mins from the I-5 so you don't hear any traffic noise at night. And the hotel/casino grounds are very nicely kept.
No more Tulalip for us! Tulalip may be bigger and a bit newer, but the staff at Silver Reef make this hotel 10 times better!! Not once did we feel like we were interrupting, or disturbing the staff, which is how we've felt every time we've checked-in or out at Tulalip.
The staff here actually seem happy to help! What a concept! Keep it up Silver Reef staff, and thank you for a great stay!! We are already planning our next visit!

This place is great for a couple days, and if nothing else go once per year so you can get a free buffet (through the slot club).

The front desk is very friendly and efficient, billing is accurate and check-out a breeze.

As always, the rooms are very clean, still modern and fresh and the beds are really comfortable. There is free internet though our wi-fi was slow this time, it may depend on what floor/room location but wired is always available as well.

Room rates are best when booked directly through the hotel/casino website, and a free breakfast buffet is included, or you have the option of a breakfast sandwich and free coffee if you choose not to get up as early.

Reasonable spa prices and a very nice indoor pool add to the value of the stay.
