“A little outdated but clean and pleasant rooms”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

We stayed at the Skagit Valley Casino Resort's hotel for one night in July.

About the room: We were happy to get $20 off for signing up for a rewards card. The room itself was very clean and comfortable, though outdated looking. The staff was very friendly and the reservation/checkout process were smooth and pleasant.

About the casino: We saw the Spazzmatics ('80s cover band) on a Friday evening, and it was a very fun show. The casino itself is small and pretty dingy and too smoky. We had breakfast in the restaurant because the buffet wasn't open for breakfast on Saturday morning (seems strange, right?). The food in the restaurant was excellent, but the service was slow and reluctant.

Overall, we had a great overnight stay at the Skagit Valley Resort Casino. I would go back to see a fun band like the Spazzmatics, but not just for an evening of gambling.

Room Tip: Sign up for the rewards card for a $20 discount!

I decided to surprise my husband for his 30th birthday and take him to the casino. We were greeted by 3 very friendly people as soon as we walked through the door and check-in was a breeze. We were directed to our room and were happy when we walked in. It was nice to have a fridge to keep our own food and drinks in.
We tried the Five Onion Grill for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. Great food, good value.
We spent the evening in our room with our own drinks and were happy to find that other than the occasional person, it was very quiet.
Breakfast was at the buffet. The selection was great and well worth the money. I was surprised to find that even though it is a buffet, there are waiters to re-fill drinks and take away empty plates.
Even though people seemed to smoke like chimney's in the casino, there was no stagnant smell or clouds lingering, which I appreciate being a non-smoker.
We are from Canada and my husband is a smoker, so it was a nice surprise for him that we had a smoking room.

The hotel seems almost to be a separate property from the casino and food service. We had a garden view (parking log) Jacuzzi suite that would rival any, and the price was right. Nice suite. Living room with couch, nice chair and flat screen TV, and pass-through fireplace to the King bedroom with the best hotel spa/bath we've found. Nice bed and TV in the bedroom. Staff were attentive, the room was clean and serviceable. The casino was much too smokey and the slots were pretty outdated. Market Buffet had great service and sad food. The only decent place to eat, Five Onion Grill had a very limited menu and hours. We like this kind of getaway, but won't go back here unless we hear of improvements.

I had booked a room on a Thursday at the $79 rate for Rewards card members, but when we arrived, was told my reservation was for Friday. But at no extra cost, we were upgraded to suites, which are large rooms at the far end of the hotel. How nice was that! We stayed two nights, and had breakfast each day at the Five Onion Restaurant, which was very nice (you can get a discount with your Rewards card). The casino is still smoky, but we were expecting it. We enjoyed touring around the Skagit Valley, Desolation Sound, La Conner and enjoyed driving through the farmland. I will keep coming back to the Skagit Casino and Hotel.

My family stayed here while attending a wedding. We rented one of the suites because that is what they had left. The hotel seems very new and clean. The pool area was not huge, but was big enough and also very nice.

We stayed two nights for gambling, shopping, and fun and it was everything we could expect. Pleasant people, comfortable rooms. 5 pillows on each Queen bed. !!I wish i had this at home. Close to LaConner ( 15 minutes) and the Premium Factory outlets (40 minutes or so) near Seattle.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front as the back faces out near the I 5 Hwy. Non smoking available.
