We needed a place to stay and asked a local where would be good he said take the old highway and you will find riverside. Well we drove out of the city and wow what a nice hidden gem. New big rooms comfortable bed, quiet. Power drapes and awesome shower. Will definitely stay here again. Even won a bit not...

Great place to get away, even if you don't gamble. Rooms are nicely-furnished with a contemporary feel, including the glassed-in shower that is a modern touch. And you can cover it with a remote-controlled curtain if you're so inclined! Buffet line was horrendous on a Friday night, so ended up dining at more upscale steak restaurant which is pricey for...

The room we stayed in Valentine's Day weekend was perfect. Great view out the window of the golf course. Very clean and quite fancy. Electric drapes on the glass shower and the window. Excellent service. My wife and I felt like royalty for a night. We showed up early and we're not real sure we would be able to get...

I must say the staff were very considerate and accommodating! Upon arrival, myself and my family were greeted with smiles, genuine helpful tips! We did stay at the hotel, what a delightful surprise that was! The rooms were luxurious, spacious, and emaculate! We will be going back again soon!

We have stayed here many times with complimentary rooms. Very clean, great service. Nice pool area, tho it would be so wonderful if they didn't let kids in the hot tub! Bed very comfortable. Buffet food is so-so. Deli is Great!! Just wish we could win at this casino:)

Went to casino/hotel to check out area for a group trip. Not sure how old this is, but appears to be fairly new. Located about 1 mile east, off of main highway. Casino area was fairly large and had a lot of new slot machines. The floor is split with a non smoking area from the smoking, but the smell...

Travelled to Riverside to stay at this highly recommended hotel. Received a gift card this past Christmas and this was the first chance we had to use it. This hotel offered a "match coupon from another casino lodging" venue and we made the reservation for a Monday evening stay. (Match coupons are only honored Monday thru Thursdays). Upon arriving, we...

Went for a thanksgiving getaway. The hotel and casino were both very luxe in design and that's where the upscale stoped. The customer service was poor with the desk clerks less than eager to please, and casino bar tenders that made you feel like they were doing you a favor serving you an overpriced beer. The Thanksgiving buffet had over...

I came in from chcicago to spend time with my mom at the casino. The casino band started talking about Trump then proceeded to talk about Hillary and made comments about her that rallied the audience. They then dedicated an inappropriate song to Hillary and the audience starting chanting horrible things about her. I talked to management about the issue...
