For nearly 20 years, the Cliff Castle Casino Hotel has been voted the #1 in the state of Arizona. Located in the wine growing region of the Verde Valley, on land owned by the Yavapai-Apache Nation, the casino has an old fashioned charm that continues to seduce.
Blackjack is the main table game in play here and the slots are popular with the older crowd. There’s also the Club 52 poker room with a lively mix of tournaments and cash games. It offers a progressive bad beat jackpot, as well as promotions like ‘aces cracked’ and ‘Saturday High Hand’ to keep things interesting.
Food options are varied and tempting. The Mountain Springs buffet is the budget option (dinner just $14). For the more refined palate, there is Storytellers which serves up fine food and wines from the Verde Valley.
Entertainment is high end. The casino’s open-air theatre - the Stargazer Pavilion - has played host to the likes of the Beach Boys, Willie Nelson, and Ron White. Inside, the Dragonfly Nightclub serves up a Vegas-like vibe with top DJs and live music.
And - if it all gets too much on the casino floor - there is also a 20-lane ten pin bowling alley. All this and some of the most striking scenery in the USA just outside your hotel room.
If you want to experience fine wine and enjoy some time at the tables, the Cliff Castle Casino Hotel in the Verde Valley is worth a detour. Arizona is famed for its beauty and the Cliff Castle is a one good looking venue.
The casino is a 1.5 hour drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The casino offers a Luck Bus service and free shuttle bus. The $10 Luck Bus includes $25 worth of casino chips. Contact the hotel for itineraries and availability.
