On January 5th, we decided to take an overnight trip down to Harrah's Rincon. Through Total Rewards, we got a decent last minute rate. After we got off work, we hit the toll road from Orange County and were there about an hour and 45 minutes later.
Check in was quick. The guy checking us in was funny and personable. We got a spa tower room, King non-smoking. Nice room. I love the soaking tubs!! Our room also had a fridge, which is handy for the bottles of water we usually take with us.
We hit the gaming floor with the intention of playing for an hour or so and then hitting the buffet for dinner. I really enjoy their buffet! BUT ~ the slots got the best of us and we ended up not getting to the buffet before they closed at 9pm. So, we hit Pinks hotdogs....Now, while I love Pinks (we usually go to the one at Knott's Berry Farm), having chili cheese dogs at 11pm after a few too many beers perhaps was a bad plan! We played a few more games and hit the room around midnight.
The bed was comfy and we slept in the morning. After grabbing a cup of coffee for my husband, we headed home, with a brief stop at the Jilberto's taco stand (by Pauma casino) for some delightful breakfast.
We love that Harrah's is so close to us. Makes for a nice one night get away. Looking forward to our next impromptu trip.
