Little Creek Local
My wife and I are regular players at Little Creek. Living in the local area for the past 8 years, there isn't a lot of choices for entertainment, so we play slots
quite frequently, and attend certain events. I find the Player's Club benefits very decent at this casino, however, there are some staff behind the counter that need to go. (Customer sevice is not their calling). Every week they act like miserable trolls. We all have bad days, but this is ingrained in their personality, and management should find them other work. The table games are very much like other tribal casino table games here in Washington, however I do not see single deck Blackjack at Little Creek. The seafood bar restaurant is very good, and the guys working their fingers to the bone do an amazing job running it. My wife and I are both opposed to Buffets, so on this topic I cannot comment. Prices on beer and drinks has recently gone up, and if you order a well drink, prepare to be disappointed. Well drinks are poured through the soda tap, and are weak and overpriced at best.
The slot machines at Little Creek lack bonus play, and the payout on high bets during a bonus will more often than not disappoint. (This casino has a newer golf course that we must be paying for.) I play at the other two large local casinos in the area, Lucky Eagle and Red Wind. It is my experience that if you walked into all three with $200, you will play much longer at the other two versus Little Creek. We all know slots are for fun only, Little Creek just needs to extend that fun a little more to appear less greedy.
Not so good.....
NOT IN THE LEAST IMPRESSED.... This casino is dark, dingy, has unfriendly staff, player's club gal looked like she was being bothered by me, food was terrible in the grill and slots so tight, all they did was take money. This place is in desperate need of a makeover.
Saying all that it does have one thing to its credit, a lot of different machines, especially the new ones. Will not return to this one even if in area.
A financial graveyard for slot players
The casino is a mix of old and new gaming rooms. It has a smoking and non smoking section. Doesn't matter much for the poor slot player, every section is a LOSING section. I dropped in on my way to the Lucky Eagle to get a few glasses of "free" pop. I made the mistake of playing 1.20 bets on a weeknight. I blasted through $200 in under an hour, with little in the way of bonuses, and no upside at all. It looked like the feeling was widely shared by those around me.
A few months ago, a local patron hit big (over $1 million) on a progressive. That is one of the hazards of playing in casinos like this that aspire to get publicity by having a huge jackpot--you get to foot the bill. Little Creek isn't worth the trip.
Love the casino but not much in paybacks
The hotel is very nice with the exception that they really need to get NEW BEDS these beds are sooooo soft and worn that they are almost impossible to sleep on BUT they have spent alot updating new tv's , microwaves, refrigerators which are all very nice,if they would just spring for new firmer mattresses in their rooms I think it would make alot of guests happier..other then that we really enjoy the casino atmosphere the payouts are pretty tight tho,there's not really any machines that give you a big payout except meltdown and that gets boring...The food is good they give you decent size portions..allin all we like to go there we just HATE the hotel BEDS!
Little Creek Casino Resort near Olympia, Wash.
I love this casino. The hotel rooms are very nice. The decor -- tribal artwork -- in spacious atriums and walkways is well appointed -and relaxing. It has a great non-smoking gaming area, and it continues to expand. It's adding a cigar bar near the Poker Room. And the new golf course is excellent. Salish Cliffs is its name.
- This casino takes full advantage of the fact they do not legally have to report their slot payout % to the state - The majority of time the slots here really suck-- I would have put a ZERO in the Ratings for slots but the tallier would not let me vote without something there !!
(This is a Quote from the States compact with the tribes:" All of the state’s Tribes are not required to release information on their slot machine percentage paybacks. However, according to the terms of the compact between the Tribes and the state, the minimum prize payout for electronic ‘scratch’ ticket games is 75%".)
Very seldom can you go here and play very long on a $20.00 bill ! - This is not a whole lot of fun at all !!
Comparing their Players Club with other Casinos they are in my estimation just O.K.
The remainder of the creek activities are good or better !
Clean casino with a better than average non smokin
If the slots here payed out better odds I would probably use it more often. Although I have come out with more than what I went in with I generally come out slightly down. The good thing about Little Creek is the non smoking section, out of the casinos I generally play at this casino is tops for non smokers. They have a good variety of machines in that section, including some of the latest ones and tables games for those that don't want to suffer the smoke of the general casino.
The players club usually has plenty of mid-week action with chances to make some extra cash, they seem to do more for players than the other casinos I have been in and the staff have always been polite especially, in the buffet and seafood bar.
Sea food bar: If you like sea food especially oysters etc, this is the casino to go to. My boss has taken me and my wife out there several times and they love it. Me? I get seasick at just the thought of them, but then again, after being raised on good old English greasy fish and chips where's the comparison I ask myself? Fortunately, they are more than happy to serve other types of food in there and one of my favorites is Calamari. Although it's on the menu as an appetizer, the portions are that big it will leave you wondering where the main course is going to fit.
If you want an evening out with good food and fairly reasonable odds on the slots, it is worth the effort.
Nicely remodeled and attractive, but the machines are as tight as ever. Very hard to have a winning day there.
Not a good place to enjoy or relax.
Great place to spend some free time. The dealers are friendly and make the games fun. Four card poker is fun but usually full. The waiting list is easy to get on and some times you get lucky and called quickly. Wish they had three card too insead of so many Blackjack tables.
My wife and I stopped into this casino and stayed in the hotel, we were very pleased to see they have a full non-smoking casino including table games.
The players club was quite generous. 55-plus gets an extra $5 play over and above the $5 for joining and it was paid in cash so we started with $10 cash each; there was also a meal discount.
I was struck by the fact that the staff without exeption were exremely helpful and freindly both in the hotel and the casino. The rooms were quite inexpensive, we paid $75 for a weekday and were very clean and comfortable. We also noticed they are slightly larger than normal.
The food was pretty good for a medium size casino. Not a huge buffet, but the quality was good and we found quite a few healthy selections. Breakfast was a reasonable $5.99 and we were well satisfied with the quality and quantity. Again,? the staff was very freindly.... I am hard pressed to find a downside to our stay.
Table Games - A good variety of pretty much every major game, typically limits start pretty low (there's almost always a 3 dollar blackjack game and most of the time limits start at 5 dollars on the other games) On the downside pay back is a little on the crummy side. Blackjack has a large shoe and no surrender and Roulette pays only 35-1 on a single number. They will however rate you for any level of play and you probably will get at least a few bucks back even when betting small.
Machines - Video Poker is horrible... Poor pay scales (7-5 if i remember correctly) and only a handfull of them. Large variety of slots, most of which are probably paying back the state minimum (the only machines you have a realistic chance of winning on here are the meltdown machines which are marked at 98% payback)
Poker Room - Pretty good size, usually $4-$8 and higher. The tournaments have a pretty good structure and can get pretty large.
Restaurants- The Buffet is okay for breakfast, great for lunch (cheaper than dinner and pretty much the same menu, including crab legs) and more expensive but not bad at all for dinner. Seniors also get a sizable discount. The good deals at the buffet get me in the door for the okay gambling. The Oyster Bar and the Restaurant are also a good deal and the portions sizes for the bar menu are pretty good as well for the prices.
Comps -Drinks aren't free when you're gambling, unless you're drinking the free soda they have on the casino floor. Comps aren't bad, every point equals a dollar, and can be used for hotel, restaurant, the gas station etc.
Rooms and amenities - Decent size, clean and comfortable. Occasionally their website offers good deals (I recently got a buy one night get one free offer on their website). Standard rates are cheaper if you have a players club card. The pool is pretty average, there's a hot tub. The workout room is pretty tiny.
Entertainment - Pretty decent lounge in the bar and usually a decent act. Pool table and a couple dart boards. Also they typically get B-, C level entertainment (sometimes better - I.E. Leno) for their show room.
Overall a pretty average place. An okay casino, pretty good food options, decent comps and a good lounge and show room.
Fun place to stay & play.
Frendly & helpful employees, nice & clean hotel rooms.
