Nice golf course,very comfortable room with frig.etc,very clean throughout,staff very friendly and very helpful, nice circular casino with water features, eating good to excellent; town close if needed. Excellent experience again (except not winning on most slots, or taking advantage of the pool and SPA).

This is an average hotel casino combo. Nothing really bad, but nothing to rave about either. Rooms are clean, showers good. They used to have pretty good concerts, but now they basically get B or C level performers and comedians from Vegas or Branson. Ruthie's is a good restaurant, it is overpriced for the area, but given Iowa City nearby... More

We enjoyed out overnight stay at Riverside Casino. The hotel is very modern. Our single room had a king-size bed, very comfortable. The shower was big with modern tile. The entire room was very nice and clean. They have a coffee maker, large flat television, makeup mirror, hair dryer, safe, all of the amenities. The casino has a lot of... More

Overpriced; tacky; threadbare; smoky; filthy; tasteless; indigestible food; watered-down cocktails; cheap decor; gruff front desk staff-- I've yet to have a pleasant experience at this dump. One should think twice before booking a room, eating a meal or even gambling here.

I am not a gambler but this is still a great place to go and spend a few days. The hotel is surprisingly nice and reasonably priced with views of the very nice Rees Jones designed golf course. Besides the casino they have a spa and a pool and great meeting facilities as well as a buffet restaurant, a casual... More

With all the completion with casino hotels I was expecting something a bit nicer. "Average" does describe this facility...especially the rooms. Ours was called a "junior suite", but it was far from it! They should go visit Four Winds in Michigan and see how to really run a casino hotel. However, I must say that Ruthie's for dinner was excellent... More

We met up with family for a three day get away. We arrived in on Monday and it was a quieter time for the casino, with less travelers and craziness that typically surrounds a resort and golf course. Rooms are beautiful and modern, with gorgeous walk in showers and ample space. Rooms have refrigerators and coffee makers but no microwaves.... More

It is a beautiful hotel. Rooms and hallways are lovely. Staff is super friendly!, Rooms are lovely and very large. The beds are too soft for me and I wished I had brought my own pillow. Rooms are noisy. Feels like everyone talking in the hallway is in your room. Love the pool. Food at the pool is average. There... More

Excellent hotel and spa! We had a room and a suite. They are very nice and spacious. It was a girl's weekend so we really enjoyed the spa and pool. The dealers in the casino were awesome! They also have great concerts there.

The first thing that hits you about this place is how smokey and dirty it is. Second, it is poorly maintained and simple things like doors are in need of maintenance. It is a bare bones, nothing special, out in the middle of what used to be a cornfield casino. It's not pleasant to be there.
