The expansion follows the completion of a 159-room remodel at the resort and will expand the property’s fast food services, add two additional bars and include a combined gift and coffee shop. The casino will benefit from up to 70 percent more space to house newly added slot machines. A new 500 car, 4 story parking garage will also serve the area as a badly needed Tsunami shelter.  The expansion project will employ more than 100 laborers during the construction as well as add to the resort’s current workforce upon completion. The Tribe is already the largest employer in Grays Harbor County, providing more than 1200 jobs for both tribal members and non-tribal residents.

Don Kajans, General Manager of Quinault Beach Resort and Casino stated: “I am excited that the Quinault Nation will continue to expand its properties. This expansion project not only allows us to employ more locals, it will also help us to bring more people to the area. It’s good for the Resort, good for Quinault and good for Ocean Shores. And our patrons will love the changes.”

“The Quinault Beach Resort and Casino has been a major component of Quinault Nation’s employment and economic structure for the past 16 years. It is largely due to its success that we have been able to diversify. We have been proud to provide such a comfortable and rewarding entertainment facility to area residents and visitors alike at this beautiful location, surrounded by the majestic Pacific Ocean and hundreds of acres of protected wetlands and glorious forests. We have been proud to provide employment for so many families, economic support for the region and millions of dollars in support for such necessities as emergency services for nearby communities,” said President Sharp.

Quinault Beach Resort and Casino is an active member in the Ocean Shores community helping to attract a large number of visitors to the area.  For more information contact Lorna Grover at Quinault Beach Resort and Casino, phone number 360-289-5001.
