We had a great night at Isle Casino on our way back from out West. Friendly staff and a very clean room. Slots were tight but had fun playing Black Jack! Easy in and out and would definitely recommend this to everyone. We will stop there again.

We didn't stay in the hotel as they wanted $169 for the night. We did eat at the buffet, which was fabulous, especially if you like crab legs and deep fried butterfly shrimp. Their selection was quite varied and everything was hot, plus they kept everything very clean.

We had a weekend business meeting and stayed at the hotel/casino. Check in was quick and painless. The rooms were decorated a little different than the normal but it was nice. Beds were comfy. Enjoyed playing in the casino in between meetings. I even won a little bit which made it a great weekend.

The bed is comfortable, the room is large,and it's all clean. it's weird to be, for the first time in many years, in a building where people smoke. i was pleasantly surprised that the room didn't smell of smoke at all. it's been a while since the hotel has been updated. the carpet is a bit worn and the pain...

Called to get a quote for Christmas Eve. Called days later to book and the quote almost doubled...I was less than trilled. We arrived to a smooth check in, however no bell hops available which I thought was strange. We dined at Otis & Henry's which was pretty good. We enjoyed the casino and called it a night.

We stay here quite often because my husband is a gambler and gets free rooms. The hotel is clean and rooms are nice. Customer service has always been top notch! There is a nice pool area but I honestly have never actually hung out down there. The kids have and they loved it! Casino itself, nothing extraordinary. Bar staff is... More

Lackluster, non-upgraded property and any entertainment value is down to a dull roar...at best. We've found the guest services and VIP services to have slipped to sub-par at best. It has become a real joke. We're players and trying to be comped here and taken care of is a total joke. A true mickey-mouse operation. The only thing they've updated... More

We have stayed at The Isle in Waterloo a number of times and have never been disappointed. the Casino is quite large; complete with a poker room upstairs, non-smoking areas and numerous slots, video poker and table games. The Isle offers returning patrons many 'extras', i.e., free hotel stays, food discounts, reward card multipliers, etc. So, be sure and register... More

Rooms in desperate need of upgrading. No repairs or improvements in the 8 years of staying here. Restaurant quality has consistently declined. Casino has kept up with floor machines, but not the bar machines. The bar games have never been upgraded and are in bad condition.
