Just asked the maintenance person for help with the a/c & he was super kind and helpful. The new rooms are beautiful; however, there was ALOT of dust all over the bottom shelf of the side tables. That's the only bummer part but luckily I bring with me my own antibacterial wipes for this reason. Also, there are a lot... More

We arrived on Sunday afternoon for a Rick Springfield/Pat Benatar concert that night. We were staying 2 nights in a North Tower King Non-smoking room (#10046). It was a great room - obviously it had been recently renovated. Very clean, new looking and no smell of smoke in the room, which I was worried about, considering this is a casino.... More

The rooms are ok. Fiore's the restaurant is ok too. But the few remaining eateries are bad. Real bad. Plus they all close early. Machines & Tables are both regulated with an in house gaming commission. Hmmmmm..... I've been coming here for a couple of years now. Probably 20-30 times. All FREE comps. But never again. 6 miles West is... More

Arrived at 3:40, twenty minutes before check in. The line was so long, I waited 30 minutes to check in! They has an employee passing out candy saying sorry for the wait. Candy? Really? It was kind of low class to pass out tootsie rolls for a resort with as many rooms as this hotel. When I was checking in,... More

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Harrah's Resort Southern California. The hotel is very nice, the pool area is beautiful and well maintained, and the casino is large and clean. That is not to say we didn't have some issues. Checkin - This is my complaint about the hotel. First, no line.... According to my reservation, we had booked... More

Open an account at any of the Harrahs Hotels and numerous other resorts in Las Vegas. I receive comp for room, food and cash. You really do not have to play long, maybe 15 -20 minutes a day. Anyway about the resort, stayed a quite a number of times. Try to book a room at the North Tower, new rooms,... More

The former "Harrah's Rincon" is now known as Harrah's Resort Southern California, nestled in the San Diego mountains. I had a Coronado Suite, complete with my own private balcony terrace. The room was huge and well appointed. Nice bed. Whirlpool tub. Dual sinks and more. I found the casino spacious, good selections of games, all seemed to play fair, though... More

This hotel is 25 miles from civilization. Once they get you there you are pretty much trapped. You are also trapped for food. We wanted a snack and the least expensive thing ANYWHERE, in the hotel, is $6.00. A plain hot dog. They charge you $15.00 for internet that absolutely does NOT work. We told them that the electrical outlets... More
