This place has gone through soooo many management changes in the past year its craziness is showing. Everyday is different sometimes there is food, sometimes there isn't. There isn't anything left in the "casino". It's empty. Don't waste your time!

This "casino" has some of the oldest games on the planet. I dont know the prerequisites To calling this place a casino, its mainly a bingo parlor with a handful of 1980's style video poker and slots machines. The food at the bar was bad, the drinks are bad and expensive for what you get. If you have to drive... More

I regularly have had to travel to northern California for business. I always stop at the casinos for my travel breaks. This casino has been on my route for 10 years. Though a little off the beaten path it has great atmosphere and a very nice staff. The casino has buses from Sonoma County and San Francisco, as well as,... More

Sho ka wah Casino treats the local people like first class if you're a visitor they'll treat you like lower class even the management favor the locals more than you if you like to lose your money and win nothing that's the place to go

While on vacation in Windsor, we decided to part with some money at a casino. We looked for one in the "area attractions" rack at the condo we were staying at and decided on this one. They have some great Native artwork as you approach it, as do most of the Tribal casinos. The inside was tiny so they must... More

This is your average tribal casino. Smaller than most, smokey and desperate now that two much larger casinos have opened up south of Hopland in Sonoma County. As with all tribal casinos, the rate of return in winnings is generally far below the Las Vegas standard (which is regulated, where tribal casinos are not). Buyer beware.

The convenience of having an Indian casino near a major highway is what us decide to take a rest break from our road trip on Hwy 101 to Fort Bragg. Although I had no luck with the slot machines, there were many and varieties that kept enough interest to play a little longer. My wife faired better and left smiling,... More

Stopped in for a short time and played my favorite interactive slots. Came away a winner! Didn't stay long as smoke bothers my lungs but it wasn't really smoky in the afternoon. Friendly staff, great deals on meals and gambling for seniors on Tuesdays although we didn't stay for a meal or the free slot play. It is a ways... More
