Having never before stayed here I used this place to stop on my first of three days of driving/hiking in Iowa to places I have never been to or haven't seen for a longtime. Upon entering the grounds, you are directed to either the valet parking area or self service parking. I chose the latter and walked in. I made... More

When this place opened some years ago- the food was great and so were the rooms. Not so much anymore. We had a family reunion and a few of us (12) decided to try Dunigan's Irish Pub. We were all couples and one 2 month old baby. Everyone ordered various items none of which anyone liked at all. For example,... More

Great entertainment. Fast entry into the concert, no lines. We did not stay at the Wild Rose Casino; completely booked. However, we are going to the Mickey Gilley concert Aug. 20, 2016. I am sure it will be as fun as the last one. We are going to camp at the campground at the Wild Rose Casino.

My husband and I travelled from Kansas City to experience Les Stroud and the Campfire Kings, an excellent performance. They gave the audience a half hour more than we anticipated, and Les was warm and very accessible. He and his band made many new friends that night. A real bonus was the hotel at Wild Rose. Clean, comfortable, great service.... More

My husband and I have stayed at Wild Rose resort 3-4 times while wrapping a night playing BlackJack.

This review is strictly on the casino, as I have never stayed in the hotel. Casino itself is quite smoky which I can deal with, but what is disturbing to me is the inexperience of some of the dealers at the blackjack table. You want to make sure you ALWAYS have an exact count on your hand and the dealers... More

However, in the past the hotel staff has been less than friendly when trying to book a room for this weekend. We didn't even try to get a room this year, after being told six months out that the rooms are completely booked. REALLY?!? Why advertise them if there are none available?
