“Slept like a baby!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2011

Our first time staying at the EQC and it was very nice. The staff at the check in desk were polite and extremely helpful. The room was very nice and looked out at the pool/spa area so no noisy traffic. Nice amenities, great towels and toiletry items. Neat little 1-cup coffee maker. Beds were great - very comfy and the room was not too warm or too cool. All-in-all, a very good experience. Also, if you are going to see a show at the other location, you can take the shuttle to and from and there is a discounted room rate.

This is a review for the casino/hotel in Fife. We were treated well and the location is good and convenient to I5. There are only slot machines here and limited eating options. The "sandwich bar" was busy and not very clean on the night we were there. We caught the shuttle over to the "main" casino for a concert and to play craps and other table games. The shuttle took awhile but it was a very busy night. All in all okay stay.

My wife and I went to see "Last Comic Standing" and stayed at the Hotel in Fife. We live in Renton which is only a half hour away, so we didn't have to stay the night there. And I wish we didn't. From the get go the whole experience was "weird" I kept saying to my wife that it would be a good experience if people would just smile and say Hello and thank-you!!. its not that hard.. with the economy the way it is I am surprised the employees aren't going out of there way to please you.. There are lots of unemployed looking for work and if I were the Manager I would be making that clear to my employees.

Traveling through Washington when arrived at hotel front desk staff first could not find room confirmation and when they finally did they said we should never book through the internet as if it was our fault they had overbooked themselves.They made rude comments about how the Managers don't deal with it. If it had not been so late at night and I had already pre paid for the room I would have found alternate accomodations. The only room left in the place was a smoking room at first it did not smell but as the night went on whenever someone in the next room would light up our room would stink up. The hotel staff were unfriendly, never apologized for the inconvience or accept responsibility for their mistake. They were no help with bags or directions they just tried to avoid questions and when asked questions the would respond with I don't know . All the vending machines on every floor were out of order. The valets honked at people in the parking garage I have never experienced such a lack of customer service from an entire staff in my life. Even in the room there was a lack of helpful information. No hotel info or area info like what time check out was or where to eat. I will never stay at this property again and would not recommend it to anyone.

there are a lot of fun and clean casinos in Washington but this is not one! This casino has guards at every intersecting hallway & they are not friendly. Our non-smoking room smelled of exhaust fumes and smoke we were almost unable to sleep it was so bad. The staff was openly hostile to questions and seemed angry to be working here. We left early and stayed at a motel 8 in federal way our second night in Washington and it was much preferred to the casino at about half the price. They even gave us maps to other local casinos that were nice and inviting. The Emerald Queen was a huge disappointment considering we planned this trip just to visit them.

We were non-gamblers joining up with classmates for a 60th b'day celebration and not too sure from reviews how we'd find the hotel. Though there was a smell of smoke even in non-smoking rooms on top floor, not as bad as expected. And the room was fantastic - big, roomy, clean, a bed that was huge and comfortable and had the world's best pillows! Good-size bathroom, with sink/vanity outside - lots of storage space. P.M. maid service (straightening things, clean towels, etc.). Entire staff was friendly, courteous, helpful. Numerous police and rules on taking bottled water from hotel offputting...good buffet, nice restaurant upstairs with bar. Negatives were smoke, no gift shop/mini-mart to buy aspirin, stuff like that, and window in room that only opened an inch, when we wanted a few more to get fresh air inside. Great places to eat w/in walking distance. And what had to be the absolutely cleanest parking lot we have ever seen. This place is well-run.

We have stayed at the Emerald Queen Hotel & Casino in years past. But this time was a shock because they have remolded, expanded and improved it 110%. It's casino area is larger and it has two parking decks now.
The hotel itself has wonderful thick fluffy towels. The sheets on the beds are high grade and the beds themselves are great to sleep on.
The staff is always helpful. Tho the one cup coffee makers in the rooms are not to my liking - they do cater to gamblers here and you can get free coffee in the casino. And it's good coffee!
There is always cleaning going on - so I was impressed with the housekeeping of the hotel and the casino.
We are not gamblers - so the casino is not the draw for us. But the hotel, it's location and it's new (to us) restuarants are great for when we come into town to visit family and friends.
The Tatoosh Grill is a wonderful place to eat.
