Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Coarsegold
Reviewed 12 February 2012

We drove down from San Jose to celebrate my girlfriend's dad's birthday. We got a nice room with two queen beds and a great view of the countryside. This casino is large enough to make you feel like your not just seeing the same thing over and over. The buffet is huge and the food is good. We also had my girlfriend's little sisters who were able to play at the arcade and the pool :) The service was great as well from the check in to the bell staff.

Room Tip: Try the mongolian style beef at the buffet !!

Chukchansi isn't a bad place to spend a few hours. I ate here and played the slots a little. The buffet was good, decently priced & the people were friendly. Slot play was okay.

My room was spacious, clean and well decorated - just disappointed the windows are sealed shut - no chance of fresh air in a facility with smoking rampant throughout the casino. On my second night, I asked to change to a room adjoining a friend's - and that became overly complicated - I saw that the previous occupant had vacated early AM, the maid finished cleaned the room by around 10:00 a.m. as I told her I would be moving into it - but the front desk couldn't seem to communicate with housekeeping and I couldn't get access until almost 3:00. This should have been easier.

Excellent meals - great prime rib at Goldfield's Cafe at a great price, plus great value for a nice breakfast. Also ate one night at Nativo's - food and service were excellent - great grilled salmon - and the fresh baked bread was wonderful.

This was a return trip the hotel,since our last review. I have to say I was very impressed with the front desk staff. The young man was very helpful and accommodating compared to the previous stay. They gave us the pick of the floor (maybe due to low occupancy) in the Picayune Tower.
I was not happy with the lack of engineering to fix or correct the heating issue in the room. Food was good as usual and the machines were hitting which is a change. I paid cash deposit for the room and got the deposit back the next day. All in All great stay. No real complaints.

Room Tip: Ask for nail correction at the spa salon for 5.00 and request access to the sauna and steam room not...

The location is beautiful, and the restaurants are very good. You have plenty of choices on what kind of food and the room service is pretty fast and they give you a lot of food.My husband and I have stayed here many times and we get the same problems every time we stay at this casino hotel. The front desk service is awful. They are rude and act as if you are a bother to them. The rooms are okay, it really depends on if your in the older or newer tower. The beds are pretty much the same in both.....very average. The walls are thin and the bedding in the old tower along with the television need to be updated. The newer tower is updated and very nice but the beds are the same. The rooms are clean and I like the products that they have in the bathrooms.Again the views of the mountains are beautiful and we can not forget the spa......very nice.

Room Tip: ask for the newer tower

We spent a couple of nights at Chukchansi resort in early October while we visited Yosemite. As others have mentioned this is a convenient location from which to visit the park as you are north of Fresno about 30 minutes and only about another 30 minutes to the park. The resort is isolated, but everything that you need is pretty much available due to having the casino with several dining venues. Since we were there during the off season the hotel wasn’t very busy and some of the dining options were not open during the early part of the week. However, there was a nice café and the buffet; both of which were good food, good variety and good prices. We stayed in the older, Chukchansi tower in a room with 2 queen beds. The room was large enough and clean, but didn’t have the updated amenities of the newer. Picayune tower. The free wi-fi worked great, which is something that you don’t find everywhere. Overall Chukchansi lived up to our expectations; no surprises either good or bad. It is probably one of the nicer places to stay in that area.

Room Tip: If you want a flat screen TV and other new upgrades get a room in the Picayune tower.

Stayed there this weekend for a quick getaway with my wife. The first thing that was apparent was that the valets were swamped. After about 10 minutes, we decided to self-park. There looked to be 25-30 cars waiting for the valet to park them. At the registration desk, we were greeted by a very stoic individual that, while not rude, was not typically friendly. There wasn't a sense of being welcomed by any of the staff that we encountered. We were assigned to the "Original Tower," and our room was clean and quiet. The bed was a little firm for my liking and somewhat lumpy. Not much area to set up a laptop. Wi-Fi provided at no charge. The restaurant food was average at best and the servers were pleasant. The casino area is smoke filled and very unpleasant for a non-smoker. It's doubtful that we will return here to stay in the future.
