Spent one night here and enjoyed the stay. We were here as a group and the staff was very helpful. Rooms nice with nice large tv and refrigerator. Ice machines on every floor. Aveda products. Very nice. Our group was able to eat our meals quickly and together at the buffet. Pretty good food. Nice desserts. Would stay here again.... More

Love the Casino, but very small. Payouts were good enough, but rather boring if I stay more than a couple of days. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Sexy type of bathroom! Food here was pretty good, but not the best for a casino.

Wayyyyy overpriced. Rooms were fine but was there for a concert and was over by 9:30. Earliest ending concert I've ever been to. Lame sauce. Probably just wanted people to go gamble. House band played until midnight and was a bit painful to listen to.

First off, the room is very clean. Housekeeping must do an amazing job. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they were consistently professional, from booking to check out. The room is nice- modern and comfortable. I did think the room was very overpriced. The room was nice, but not THAT nice. Usually once a room approaches $200, you expect... More

We will be arriving in September for our fifth year for the TEE Tournament. Have enjoyed it tremendously with all the Vets. The Riverside does a fantastic job catering to all of us. It is such a good week and so much fun for all involved. I can honestly say that we feel pampered. Thanks again to the Iowa VA,... More

We were at the casino on Thursday and I never saw such a filthy place in the smoking area. I sat down to a machine with 3 over full ash trays and ashes all over the place, I asked a lady to please clean up and she looked at me if I was crazy. The place it not as clean... More

Traveling through the area and stopped to visit family. They booked us here as there aren't a lot of hotels in the area. The room was nice. Really nice. The bed was comfortable. Really comfortable.

I've stayed in the hotel a number of times and have gone to the casino and the restaurants frequently. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is friendly. The restaurants are quite satisfactory. I prefer to go to the buffet early while the food is fresh. The casino offers a variety of games and they often have... More

We have stayed at Riverside many times but not in the past three years. We had a coupon for a free room.They had saved our request to be close to the elevator and we secured our favorite room.

I would highly recommend you go elsewhere, we will never go back. We went as a group of 3 couples for a golf weekend. The hotel, Ruthie's restaurant, and golf course are all overrated. Even though we booked non-smoking rooms, the smell is everywhere. The smoke smell is in the whole casino, the restaurant, the rooms. I usually never have... More
