Little Creek Casino Resort recently unveiled a fully renovated tower at their resort property. The new suites offer spacious accommodations, updated amenities, and a beautiful PNW decor. I’ve previously stayed at Little Creek just over a year ago and immediately noticed the attention to detail in the upgrades. The glass-encased shower was spacious and modern, with quality bath amenities provided. The room provided a fridge, coffee maker, and plenty of outlets for charging my electronics. The size of my standard room was generous, offering deluxe bedding and comfortable seating, a work station, and a rather large HD flat screen television.
My check-in process was smooth with attentive guest agents welcoming me in the large lobby. I noticed a busy, attractive espresso and wine bar in the lobby and plenty of seating for gathering over drinks and conversation. A few of the on-site amenities include a heated indoor pool and a spacious fitness center.
During my mid-week stay, the gaming and entertainment floor had an upbeat vibe with just enough buzz to feel excitement throughout the facility, yet enough options to have my choice of slot machines or table games. If low-key relaxation is more your style, turn your weekend getaway into a luxurious retreat by booking a spa treatment at Seven Inlets Spa & Salon. Or, book tee time at the 18-hole championship course, Salish Cliffs Golf Club.
Seven on-site dining venues include full service restaurants including Island Grille, Seafood Bar, and Creekside Buffet. During my stay, I opted for the buffet as it featured a seafood island with Dungeness and snow crab, mussels, and shrimp. The carving station included roast beef and tender chicken. There was a wide assortment of other entrees, unique sides, and a large salad bar and dessert station. I found the food to be fresh and of high quality, while the service was pleasant and attentive.
Upcoming special events at Little Creek include the Christmas Market, November 24-26. This event features unique holiday gifts, local made jewelry and crafts, and photos with Santa. The event is free and family-friendly. For New Year’s Eve, Little Creek will offer live entertainment, beverage and dining specials, and a number of cash drawings. The official event is ticketed at $25 with a Players Card.
Little Creek Casino Resort is an inviting getaway just outside Shelton WA, surrounded by the lush landscape of Kamilche Valley, and just over an hour drive from downtown Seattle.
