To reflect the property upgrades, recent expansions, and formation of an enterprise group, Lenmoore, Calif.-based Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino has adopted a name change to Tachi Palace Casino Resort.

Through its history, the Tachi-Yokut tribe, owners and operators of Tachi Palace, has invested significant dollars in the property as well as the community, making the hotel and casino a true asset to the area, according to a press release. This tradition continues into their 37th year of operations.

In November 2018, the Tachi-Yokut Tribe opened of an 88,350-square-foot entertainment center featuring a state-of-the-art movie, movie theater including eight screens; 30-lane bowling alley; arcade home to the latest games; and 10-table billiards room. Earlier that year, they opened an 8,000-square-foot gas station and convenience store with 16 gas and diesel pumps, plus eight race high-octane pumps, and two electric charging stations. While located on the same property, these two entities initially operated independently from the hotel and casino and recently were merged to form an official enterprise group.

“By creating this enterprise group, we are better able to manage the entire property from a customer service and maintenance aspect,” said Rojelio Morales, director of marketing for Tachi Palace Casino Resort. “By combining the offerings and amenities into one group, it became appropriate to change our name from Hotel and Casino to Casino Resort. Tachi Palace Casino Resort is truly a destination unto itself, offering our guests of all ages an amazing, resort experience.”

Last year also brought many upgrades to the property including the expansion of dining choices available at the casino. In November, the casino opened the HL Gaming Room, a high-limit area remodeled to include more premiere VIP slot experiences. Guests also have been taking advantage of the expanded outdoor entertainment area on the north lawn, near the resort pool, which was cemented into a 4,000-square-foot space.
