River Rock Casino Richmond BC

Great stay near the airport. we stayed here on our last night in Vancouver. The room was great, the bed was very comfy. The best thing about the hotel was the pool…fabulous!! great waterslide, nice hot tub..the kids loved it!!!

Spent a night at the River Rock Casino Hotel recently. The hotel room was average, so the price seemed a little high for the location (I paid full rack rate I believe). Beds were wonderful so very comfortable. The room size was adequate. Well stocked and clean bathroom. Staff at check in were accommodating and helpful. The temperature in the room however was not able to be regulated so stifling warm. I called the front desk at 12:30 as I could not sleep and they assured me that they could regulate from their end. This did not happen. I constantly turned the heat down, and it would creep up again. Therefore this did taint my experience as I just did not sleep much despite the comfortable bed. The hotel offered a small discount at check-out due to this so obviously are customer service focused.

Starlight Casino New Westminster

One of the better ambiences, compared to PNE or Edgewater, though it is off the beaten track, just avoid the traffic @ connector when you can.

Starlight Casino in New Westminster is quite spacious and I like the parking facilities, surface lot as well as covered.

And it’s great there’s a few indies food-wise, choice of casual noodles or high-end Kirin.

A decent buffet but an even better sitting lounge, with a row across for candy action, though it’s kinda rare lol.
Well, I’ve been here a few times just for the casino experience. It’s a pretty small casino, maybe about 1/3 of the river rock in Richmond. Service is lacking at this location. I’m not looking for red carpet service, I’m just looking for servers who won’t bump into you, or dealers who help you have a good time (not stone faced or sighing a lot), things like that.

Located in the Queensborough area of New Westminster, Starlight offers  850 slot machines, 45 gaming tables, and Vancouver’s newest poker room, including electronic tables. For the High Limit and VIP player, experience the ultimate in personal service, including exclusive access to the private bar and patio.

Cascades Casino Langley

Clean, well laid out with options for all types of gaming. Noticeably fresh air throughout. All in all, a comfortable place to sacrifice your cash to the Gaming God.

What a fun place to eat and drink and have fun
Very clean and friendly too
Service can be slow when busy but better
than other Casinos

What can you say about a Casino…if you are winning it is the best around but if you are losing it is the machines fault as they don’t pay off!!
I found this Casino to be average for the Casinos in Canada…

Go on a weekend evening
The beverages are good and accepts L pricing
Wonder the slots and tables and listen to the tunes
Fun times with friends

Elements Casino Cloverdale

Elements is a great little casino with a good selection of slot machines for a smaller casino. It has an upstairs and a downstairs but the selection of slots is better upstairs. There is also a food court type place called Foodies that has burgers, chicken strips and the like. It’s a bit small so on a Saturday night it’s a bit tricky to get a machine – especially if you have a favourite.

On the way back from Harrison Hot Spring after the dragon boat festival ,girl friend # 3 feel like to have a seafood ,after the disappointment twice in River Rock buffet , so ,on our way ,we drop in the Elements Casino for their Sunday seafood buffet , with my experience in the hospitality industry ,ALL the buffets almost the time in any casino or hotel ,the only different is the quality of the foods and service , the place is not as big as the River Rock ,but I am very impressed the place is very clean ,the buffet stations well stock ,no mess ,salad is very fresh ,the sea foods is very good ,and the staff is excellent , it is a small casino , but great service and foods ,price is excellent too ,also they have the B B Q Buffet on Friday , I will come back for sure to try the ribs ! well done ! I truly recommend it ,my girl so happy ,she want me to come here for the seafood , no where else ! so ,try it out !

Grand Villa Casino Burnaby

Wasn’t here to gamble, but rather for a 3 day  festival in March.

In general the staff are just modestly well trained, a friend who checked in earlier asked to have their room with us. Later when we checked in they were clueless.
I also asked where I could access a vending machine that sold juice and no one knew (it’s on the hotel suite floors) and directed me to the bar instead. I don’t gamble but, some of the dealers at the tables looked like they were high school students, banks don’t even hire such immature looking staff so….
To top it off, they didn’t offer late check outs at the time we were there..
It’s no more than a 3star hotel, budget but new-ish.
Mental note, for the future, make a reservation and eat in or take out from the 2nd floor restaurant, call early to confirm rooms, arrive earlier to get a better parking spot, request late check out beforehand.

The spacious gaming floor, spread over two levels, is alive with the energy of over 50 gaming tables and 1000 slot machines.
