Fiore, their steakhouse, has improved and worth trying. Always clean and safe place to have fun! Ability to order drinks from machines are one of the best perks. They make it too easy to qualify for Diamond which is second highest Player's Club status.

This resort wasn't as great as we thought it would be. First of all, when we made our reservation they said that first responders will get a 15% discount, only to find out upon check in that they do not consider nurses to be first responders. After much complaining they did end up giving us the discount, but it took...

Spent a couple of nights at Harrah's Rincon. Beautiful property. Everyone friendly; Valet, Front Desk, Housekeeping, pool attendants, bar tender, VIP Lounge ( they had egg rolls and $5 appetizers), just a great getaway. Not far from Legoland. Awesome place to stay! We will be back.

While this resort used to be very kid friendly, they now only allow 4 pool visitors per room. They can still visit the places to eat and they aren't too strict (unlike Vegas spots) about kids walking through the casino. I have 4 kids so unless my Mom wants to redeem her 'free' room at the same time I can't...

I wanted a quick local getaway and googled the best hotel pools in SoCal. Harrah's topped that list. My room was spacious, clean, and quiet. The bed was comfortable. But I'd come for the pools, not the room...I was not disappointed. Their lazy river is better named "crazy River" being that it's the only area kids are allowed. As loud...

Convenient location near by Southern California. Very good entertaining place and fun. When you drove to the place, I enjoyed a lot for the pleasant area and surroundings. The Casino provides excellent rooms for overnight. However, like many public casinos, you need to be used to smoking areas. Otherwise, everything is great.
