Tourist may have to seek nearby lodging when visiting Washington’s casinos, as many of the gambling establishments do not provide hotel accommodations: this is probably due to the size of some establishments, as some casinos are 6,500 square feet in size, while others might be as much as 70,000 square feet in area. Nonetheless, finding suitable room accommodations should not be a difficult endeavor for tourists as many of Washington’s casinos are located in or near the major cities of the state.
