Nice comfortable room and great gaming! Good food but the choices are pretty slim throughout the night, Only Pinks. Great Valet Team but bell service is poor if you arrive late. Takes quite awhile to receive luggage if you arrive late!!

I have visited and played at Harrah's on a number of occasions and enjoy the many types of games to select from. The staff and management have always been helpful and friendly. The casino is well vented and well suited for non-smokers like myself.

We were in the "Dive Inn" tower, 3rd floor as I don't like heights (earthquakes, ya' know) The room was very nice, and clean as has all our rooms at Harrah's. For me, it was too cold and no way to change the thermostat. I'll remember to bring socks next time. :)

Very Good customer service. Servers are very good in the restaurants. Dealers are very good and engaging at the tables. Fiori's is a hidden gem. Overall great location. Need more 3 card poker tables available.

It is a kind of Oasis in Southern California! This is just like a substitue of Las Vegas. I've been several casino resort in Southern California. Other Casinos are nothing like Las Vegas. Harrah's is the best despite of its location.

Hidden in the hills between Valley Center and Pala casinos is Harrah's. Newly remodeled, it offers the best of gaming, food and now entertainment. It is a bit harder to get to than Pechanga and Pala, but it's worth it.

Harrah's Rincon has a lot of games and slots to choose from for fun! There could be more waitresses and buffet could have do a little better , especially the desserts bar (many lack flavor)..The Cafe is great :-)

the room is great and clean compared to other casinos we've been to and definitely I will recommend it to my friends, I'm planning to go back again and stay more days and check in a little bit early to try the food at the buffet.

Took a bus trip to Harrah's casino. Had a good time at the casino, the bus ride to and from was a disaster. Didn't stay overnight at the resort. Enjoyed my chili dog and fries at Pink's. They have a good selection of slot machines, but need to put in more video poker machines.

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.
