We visited here twice while on vacation. We appreciated the no smoking room and had our best luck in the "classic slots" area. Did not have the same luck in the main casino area. We still left the casino with more money in our pocket than we had going in. We did not eat or drink at the casino

Went to visit the Coronado exhibit and found this buffet "next door". Great selection, nice people, clean, under $10.00 each for a weekday lunch. Hard to beat!

The machine takes your money and then they tell you they can't find out what happened to it your money is lost

We went to the buffet and it's smaller than expected but we went to the crab legs night and it was good. We had a good meal then we went bowling and had a blast. We will definitely go back.

I used to be a frequent patron at Santa Ana Star Casino. I was a regular at the buffet and the cafe (both had good food). However, several months ago they made a change to the players cards. At this time we were demoted to a lower card. The slots got tightened up and the food at the restaurants took... More

There is no parkng, street signs confusing, buffets one of the worst I've ever had, police stalking customers outside the doors, low payouts. This is not a friendly pueblo place to visit. Won't go back. Did I mention the noisy ugly construction?

Stopped in for a quick break on the first part of a week long road trip. All parts of casino very clean. I really like how spread out it is and they organized many of the slot manufacturers together. Makes it very easy to find your favorites. We only played for about an hour then had to go. We left... More
