I'd say It is "off the beaten path". But WELL worth the drive. My wife and I enjoyed the Hotel,casino and the weather.The staff was freindly and the rooms were VERY nice. The Food was very good as well, both at the cafeand the Buffet. A true Harrahs property. Thank You

With gas prices soaring, we have pretty much stopped going to Las Vegas (except for the great Harrah's New Year's Eve party) and have made Rincon our go-to place to get away for a few days. Having stayed in about 4 different room types since we started going there, we have settled on the La Jolla Suite as our room... More

I have been in Harrah a lot of times but it was worst and worst. The boy making the check in at my arrival was very very unpolite, aggressive and hard. My companion was not yet arrived and he menaced me to charge the price of the suite if he will not arrive before midnight. The people who work at... More

We are very faith to Harrah's properties and like staying at them. Harrah's Rincon is always great. We had a beautiful room in the Garden Tower. Very comfortable bed, nice quiet room. The buffet was very good. They have added the famous Pink's Hot Dogs which is a great place for a quick bite. We noticed they removed the self... More

We arrived to celebrate my birthday & our room was dirty with food crumbs on the floor, a stain running down the nightstand onto the floor & pilllow feathers scattered around. There were quills from the feathers sticking out of the pillows! We reported this to the front desk & were told that we'd have to wait for a replacement... More

My wife and I checked into Harrah's Rincon Feb. 7-2011. Our reservations were made out of The Dallas Regional Office. When we tried to check in we found that our reservations had been somehow cancelled. In talking with Christi, VIP Res. services, she reinstated our reservations and put us in a suite the next day. The suite was very nice... More

Disappointed by a side trip during business to Barona Casino, we drove a bit longer the next night to Harrah's Rincon. Worth the drive; so much better. LV style machines, which is what we like to play, big open casino with lots of machine seats and variety of gaming machines. Didn't have a problem with drinks as we always go... More

I've been a regular at Harrah's properties over the years, at Rincon in particular. Even though this stop was only for one night, I had to say how much I enjoyed the suite we stayed in. Upon check in we were given a comped room, but upon checking it out we found it to be right next to the elevator... More
