The Quinault Beach Resort is the latest stop in my ongoing effort to visit every tribal property in Washington State and has many things to recommend it. The rooms are well-appointed and good sized. Gas fireplaces add a nice touch to rooms that are cozy, tastefully-decorated and uncluttered. Beds are a little soft for my taste but comfortable. Dual sinks are separate from the toilet/bathroom area is great for multiple persons simultaneously getting ready to begin the day or cleaning up before bed. A small refrigerator allows for keeping your beverages cold and a good-sized closet provides more than enough space to hang your clothes. Coffee service is delivered by Keurig coffee makers with the help of Starbucks coffee, complementary bottle water is provided in-room and the linens are top notch.
The lobby is comfortable with several chairs and sofas and includes a small Starbucks coffee bar and we enjoyed a nice salmon meal at Emily’s, the resort’s restaurant. The pool and spa are adequate and I haven’t experienced the spa.
The property’s location on the Pacific Ocean is its greatest draw! Miles of open beaches and associated activities make this a destination with something for everyone. And the nearby city of Ocean Shores offers many restaurants and shops.
On the downside, during the last remodel full-sized fully-opening windows have been replaced but a smaller window still provides for limited air circulation. And while Wi-Fi service is free, my traveling companion had to journey to the lobby to obtain a serviceable signal. His room was in the extreme north section of the top floor while mine was in the southern section and I had excellent access. I guess location is everything! And the 11:00 am checkout time (a personal pet peeve) is alive and well at Quinault Resort. The property is beginning to show its age: Numerous scuff marks in the halls and dings in the woodwork in the rooms need attention. You should skip the Weds night Prime Rib buffet, unremarkable compared to comparable buffets served at other tribal properties. Emily’s is a good alternative or sample other eateries in Ocean Shores instead.
The casino is quite smokey but offers the usual assortment of slot machines (sans true video poker and video keno) and table games with $3-$5 minimums and usual rules. Friendly personnel are in evidence in all areas of the property.
The shortcomings are minor and do not preclude from me giving the property at 5 star rating and ranking it at the very top of tribal properties visited thus far!
