Been going here for last 4 years. Do not have any complaints. Ive enjoyed everything from their steakhouse to their suites to golf course. Casino never seems to disappoint, drinks alittle pricy. But if you stay in hotel they allow you to pour your own drinks in room and come down to casino!!! WOW went their for 3 years before... More

We stayed at the hotel and as usual the room was great. The Spa was the best feature --- I had a deep tissue massage by Iris and it is the best massage ever. I would go again just to the Spa. The payout in the Casino is not the best, because I never win, so I limit myself. The... More

Worst payout around! And now the payouts will probably be tighter as they try to pile up the money before Linn County builds a casino. The buffet food isn't worth the price. Better to spend your money on a lottery ticket.

Our payout percentage has been consistently and is currently above the Iowa statewide average. While we understand that our buffet price may be higher than some other casino buffets in Iowa, we are also confident that the variety and quality of food is better as well. In addition to the buffet, we do have other options for dining including Ripple... More

I have visited this property numerous times, and stayed in the hotel probably 7 or 8 times. The rooms are magnificent with comfortable beds, a glass shower, and a variety of channels to choose from. Very modern and up to date. The buffet, I think it's called "Robert's Buffet" from the 2 times I have ate there is not very... More

Iowa has a number of casinos. Unfortunately for me, Riverside was the first one I had been to, and it set the standard too high. After staying there, the atmosphere and service at other casinos is a disappointment. The overall service at Riverside is outstanding. The casino is brightly lit, not dark and dreary. The food at the restaurants is... More

Stayed here for a conference. Deluxe king room with flatscreen TV, desk, office chair, easy chair, mini-refrig, closet, drawers, huge shower (no tub), toilet, sink. The mattress was firm, to my liking, and had choice of firm or soft pillows. Plenty of electrical outlets for recharging gadgets. The room was clean with no smoky odor at all, though when you...

We stayed at Riverside while attending a weekend wedding in Iowa City. We're glad we did! The rooms were nice, and the facility top-notch. Casino is clean and well-ventilated, so you don't smell like smoke when you leave. Slots are fun. Bar service was good and fairly-priced for a casino. We were well-treated everywhere we went. Both meals at the... More

Having made the 300-mile trek numerous times from Chicago to Iowa City, Iowa, where two daughters have attended U of Iowa, we have been stymied to find the perfect place to stay. Finding good hotels in university towns usually presents a challenge. But on football, graduation or even Parents Weekends, the stakes are raised and so are the lodging rates.... More
