When I visit family in the Coos Bay/North Bend The Mill Casino Hotel is where I stay.
I had comped rooms from casino play this visit. They surprised me with the room I received. This room was off the charts, a balcony, the largest bathroom I have ever been in, biggest walk in shower, leather furniture, and many other amenities.
I choose this hotel because all employees are genuine, friendly and enthusiastic about making sure I enjoy my stay.
Just about everything on the menu I have eaten at the Plank House Restaurant is the best freshest and best tasting I have had anywhere in Oregon. The portions are huge. Seriously, you have to try out breakfasts for sure. Be careful about ordering the chicken fried steak. It is almost the size of a dinner plate. Same with the ham steak. Make sure you ask for a table that Mari serves. She is incredibly friendly and accommodating.
I have much more positive info I could add, but I think you get the idea.
The only issue I can think of regarding staff is security. They seem to take themselves very seriously. Good luck getting a smile, eye contact, or acknowledgement that you exist. I was sitting next to a guy on a recent trip that won a $1,500.00+ jackpot. While he was waiting for the hand pay he tried to use his cell phone to take a pic of the slot machine jackpot pop-up to share with family and friends. A gruff security person sternly told him he could take no pictures. He asked why and was told it was against the rules and to put the phone away now. I spoke up and said the slot machine isn't even running, he wants to share that people can win on slots here. The security guy said again more loudly to put the phone away. What a way to kill the moment.
This trip one almost ran me over as he exited the elevator, I said how's it going? He ignored me as if I wasn't even there. The reason this makes an impression on me is because those attitudes are inconsistent with the friendly, welcoming atmosphere provided by all the other employees. C'mon people, you are security guards within the hospitality industry, not the President's Secret Service Agents.
