A nice casino and resort property. Casino could be cleaner, seems like they have cut back on staff and there was a lot of garbage between the machines...no one is cleaning up. Buffet is consistently good, nice variety of food, clean and fresh. Our only complaint was NO free wifi, they charge $10.00 a night for it. Even cheap motels...

This was our second stop at this casino. We enjoyed it last year so we decided to stop again this year. All was good except our meal at the Ripple Restaurant. The chicken in my Mexican Cobb salad was very tough, I pushed it aside. My husband's hamburger was overdone, crispy and juice less! What happened? We loved the room...

Have spent many many years celebrating birthdays and always had a great time. This time was not fun at all! It was for my husbands 58th birthday and we had family come... my daughter, her husband, their 2 children ages newborn and 3 years and my son. Everything started out great at Roberts Buffet with the all you can eat...

First off, we have been to Riverside many times, usually 2-3 times per year. This time however, was a total disappointment. We booked and payed for our 3 day weekend several months ago including tickets to "the Guess Who". When we checked in, we were told by front desk that we would need to pay an extra $22 because we...

Arrived at Riverside Casino on 22 in Riverside, Iowa on a Friday afternoon. First time. The hotel sits behind The casino itself but The check in is toward The front of The casino. A bit confusing so do not park by The hotel before you get checked in especially if you want a Room Dolly for your luggage. Room was...

We spent two nights at the hotel. We were traveling with young children, so we did not venture into the casino area at all. The hotel was clean and updated. The rooms have a small refrigerator which is great when traveling with families. The bathroom was large and the hotel provides Aveda toiletries, which is a nice touch. The casino...

The buffet was excellent for a buffet, good variety for a seafood buffet, shrimp was small was the only complaint.... The slots were horrible , it was difficult to win more than a dollar on the penny machines my husband and I played and I also noticed for a Friday night the crowd was small that was gambling.

Thank you for your honest feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your dinner at the buffet. Regarding your slot experience, it doesn’t sound like luck was on your side. Please note that we have the 5th loosest payback percentage in Iowa which can be seen here on the Iowa Racing and Gaming website: https://irgc.iowa.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2016/02/percentageposting_0.pdf. We welcome you back...

We have stayed here twice and loved it! Great perks, free rooms, etc. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere, beautiful rooms. The king suites with two person jacuzzi are wonderful. Will go back often. Close to Iowa City and Kalona so lots to do within a few miles.

Havn't been in 4 years, and man did it go down. The place was so smoky that my eyes burned. Band was playing, not too good, but plenty loud. Machines are tight. Won't miss going there. Did not spend the night but they did have nice rooms before.

Hotel was amazing, casino large enough to enjoy, and golf course beautiful! Wide selection of food at 5 different restaurants, we attended an outdoor concert, and the weather was perfect. I will definitely be back!

“Keep in mind they have smoking and non-smoking rooms.”
  • Don't quite understand the window into the room, but it does make the room unique.
  • The bathroom comes with a hair dryer and a make up mirror.
  • Inside the dresser are 2 extra blankets.
  • A view of the unique bathroom.
  • LOVE this bathroom! The vanity is awesome and a real walk in shower!!
  • Inside the closet is an ironing board and iron. Coffee maker with regular and decaf coffee.
  • The sitting chair with the lamp is perfect to read a little bit before bed.
