Pros: VERY clean, extremely quiet rooms and comfortable beds, soft towels, good quality shampoo & soaps etc. Starbucks is downstairs and many food options including a gas station right next door if you are on a budget. Very helpful staff and management (you can communicate with their management directly on their facebook page which will resolve any issues immediately). Free...

I personally loved this resort. The pool is fantastic! Lazy river, swim up bar and spa's are on point! The atmosphere is hip with loud music provided by a DJ. We had lots of fun with plenty of adult activities to do. Many restaurants and bars to choose from inside! However, I do not recommend this resort for families with...

Great local place to hang when you can't make the Vegas trip... Great food choices, I recommend the tower for accommodations, unless you're going for the pool then Splash will work... The service is always friendly

I found the hotel to be very clean. My room was very large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and kind. The casino was well ventilated and offered a lot of gaming options. The hotel had a very nice buffet with very good food.

I wanted to wake up in a casino for my 55th birthday. Pros: Beautiful resort. Went to Total Rewards at midnight and the two gals sang Happy Birthday to me, gave me a pin and banner. Cons: Tight slots, only saw one person win the entire night. Mattress is too firm, painful on the hips. Some staff nice, others blah....

Amazing experience with Harrah's SO CAL Resort. Close to everything in San Diego and best of all I get to play BJ and vacation at the same time. All rooms are clean and the property has lots of game selections.

Although only 1 hour from our home, this feels like a real getaway. It's located in the rolling green hills; you feel like you're far away from the city. Casino is nice and not too smoky as so many are. Buffet was great.

The location, room and view were fabulous! Highly efficient staff. Wasn't happy with the $4.95 cost of bottled water in the room to take our meds. The juices in the cafe are watered down. Slot machines are tight and don't pay out much.
