In 1938 the federal government decided that the four tribes living around the Susanville, California area - Paiute, Washoe, Maidu, and Pit River - got along so well that they should be designated as one tribe. The Susanville Indian Rancheria was born.
The town of Susanville was named after the first daughter of Isaac Roop who co-founded Lassen County with Peter Lassen. You can learn more about the history of Susanville and the tribe at the Lassen Historical Museum and Roop's Fort in Susanville.
The tribe built the casino in 1997 in order to provide jobs for its members, and maintains about 20% of its workforce from the tribe to this day. The beautiful hotel was opened in September of 2008 and features granite and hardwood throughout.
One of the main attractions in the Diamond Mountain Casino & Hotel is the Sports Bar and Grill. The restaurant features the largest portions of delicious fare in town, at excellent prices. According to law, the prices are not allowed to be higher than any other restaurant in town. For this reason, you will find many menu items that you cannot find anywhere in town, and a large portion for a reasonable price. The restaurant also offers several promotions for frequent guests that provides even more discounts.
The hotel is now FEMA approved #CA6106 and holds a Green Leaf designation from TripAdvisor as well as Four Green Keys from the Green Key Rating system for its recycling and sustainability projects.
