“The Single Best/Worst experience ever!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Well, I just don't know where to start-we were in town for the Ridge Car Race and decided to book a room at Little Creek after a failed attempt to rent a cabin at a local much-revered hotel/resort. We were incredibly surprised by the $69 dollar event rate and that we had been given free tickets to a 38 Special Concert at the Casino-the clean, comfortable room was more than worthy of the special rate. We understand regular price is $129.00-a little high for what we got. Beds very comfortable and room spacious & clean with micro, larger mini-fridge and a Kerig with an ample amount of coffee. Now, room aside, some of the employees we dealt with were just plain rude and non-accomodating. There are two room towers so it can be confusing to find your room-we wondered about list till we saw an employee. When we inquired as to where are room was, he said,"you will have to go downstairs and ask someone at the hotel desk!"...surely he could have taken a minute to show us as our room, we later learned was merely 60 feet from where we first inquired!!! Let me add that if you cannot tolerate cigarette smoke-avoid this place. Even though we were in a non-smoking wing, everything in this place is saturated with cig smoke-I couldn't stand it and I am a smoker!
After going to the car races and concert, we decided we were going to eat...in hindsight, I wish we would have just skipped a meal. We first attempted the seafood bar only to find a line a mile long-we then drove into downtown Shelton to eat at one of three trip advisor recommendations only to find all three (as well as every restaurant but Mexican snd Chinese) closed due to the fact it wad Sunday night ...back to Casino we went which was now over-flowing with people. We decided to grab a quik bite in the lounge -wrong-we literally sat there for OVER 1/2 hour without anyone coming to take our order. We watched 8 tables seated after us get served...we were VERY upset and when we managed to flag a waitress down, she said, "you are in my section but I am almost off so I will try to see who can take you." REALLY??? We waited another ten minutes,flagged down another young lady who said,"we are really busy tonight" and never came back. We were shocked-never have we been treated with such disregard.
Needless to say, we hightailed it outta there and ended up at the buffet ($25 per person for dinner) which was like a different world service and attitude wise. Everyone was friendly and proffessional and our waitress was on the ball. The food was very tasty with tons of seafood but they had no lemon-really? -a seafood buffet without lemon- It was a very bi-polar experience!!!
Next, we went to Gamble-We will NEVER, EVER gamble at this Casino again-we were playing slots and betting very high. I personally got into THREE bonuses betting maximum and got ZERO DOLLARS IN MY BONUS ROUNDS ALL THREE TIMES ON THREE DIFFERENT MACHINES. My compadres did not do much better,...between six of us we dropped over $1000 with no decent wins...-Talk about a rip-off-any money you may have saved on the room you can kiss goodbye on the LEAST GENEROUS SLOTS WE HAVE EVER PLAYED. Brings the value of this experience to a negative.
In closing, I must say the Valets were all wonderful and helpful as well as a few employees in gaming area but that can never make up for the negatives. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else!

Have stayed at many casino hotels, standard and suites and this room was the worse than any. 2nd floor over looking loading dock which starts receiving deliveries at 6 am. Also in same area is the staff smoking and break area.....at all times there was at least a dozen people out there having a good old time, could not open drapes as the pretty much look right in your window and they were so loud that even with windows closed youcould hear what they saying until after 3 am....not to mention all the dumpsters. When we "complained" we were told that we should have asked for a quieter room. Didnt think I should have to. Bathroom was small and nothing special....many nicer hotels with better customer service in the area....slots very tight. Seafood grille was good

Room Tip: Not one dumpster side of hotel

Review is for the Island Grille steakhouse inside the casino. Tried the lobster tail and steak meal for $22 and their shrimp and steak meal for $19. Was not the worst I've eaten but no where near the best. Food is kind of tasteless and seems like it's pre made, not cooked to order because it came really fast and was not really hot. Not bad for a hole in the wall, though their standards could be better.

The hotel rooms are very nice. I play the slot machines, haven't won big yet. The prime rib is awesome! I like this casino all in all. I live about 40 mins away but I don't mind making the trip. Have never had any bad experiences here.

We stayed in a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor but the smoke smell throughout the property was overwhelming at times and was strong in our room at times. The hotel is open concept from floor to floor so I can see how the smoke can drift around, but for me it was more than I want to deal with so I probably won't stay here again. However, the property is very nice and clean, the casino is pretty big and the restaurants are very good, food and price wise. The adjacent golf course, Salish Cliffs, is phenomonal. So, if you are a smoker than staying here is a no brainer but non-smokers may be dissapointed.

We stopped in on a whim on our way to Seattle. They had a spa king room, gave us the member rate ($139), and we had a great time. Played some in the poker room, very nice tournament. The buffet at 9:00 p.m was a bit picked over, and no vegan food, except the salad bar (I know many don't care about this), but service good. The service at the cafe in the morning, however, was atrociously slow, the fruit old, the potatoes dry.

We stayed one night at the Little Creek in Shelton in April of 2013. We stayed in a basic room, which was spacious and had a little fridge and coffee maker. The furniture in the room was decidedly outdated but clean and comfortable. It is time for a refresh, but things seem fairly well maintained. The room was good for a quick stay. Service at the check-in desk was friendly and quick. The breakfast buffet was great!
