Harrahs rincon is always a nice trip. The employees are nice, knowledgable and helpful. I hear people complain about the Diamond lounge but they have to realize the economic climate Harrahs is facing just like the rest of us. Things will be much better when the Buffet is reopened and until then try not to get too uptight. It would... More

Although from the east coast this was our second time here. Following a horrible situation at the Riviera in Palm Springs(see review), the Harrah's was a wondeful and relaxing place. There is enough to do around the area(45-60 minute rides) to keep one busy or a quiet poo(s) scene to stay around. The reception and management are excellent and were... More

maththeach, We apologize for this incident, and we appreciate you giving us a chance to rectify the situation.

Almost depressing at the door. Went to get a players card and it took about 45 mins and there were only 5 people in line. Only one person working at the rewards counter and when a dimond player or higher walked up the others had to wait for them to be helped first. People were complaning and were just told... More
