Whenever I need a few days off from the daily routine, I head for Harrah's Resort Southern California. Even if you don't wish to visit the casino, there is lots to do, from the amazing restaurants to the lazy river. A spa day doesn't hurt either, and you can get an excellent massage at Harrah's.

Hotel registration employees and casino employees are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are bright and clean. There are several places to eat - sit-down restaurants and a small food court. Downside of the property is that it is located far from any local attractions in either San Diego or LA. Visitors will need a car if they want to visit...

Rooms clean, quiet, comfortable. Staff very nice. Casino is very nice. Just cold in the casino. Need a sweater sometimes.

The casino and hotel lobby staff were courteous. Our room was clean with a modern design. I would have given it 5 stars except for the slow drain in the shower stall, it was so slow that I had to hurry up and finish showering because the water was for sure going to overflow outside of the shower stall (I...

Definitely over priced for what it was. No free wifi for a $300 dollar a night room? No late check out? The check in gal didn't even give us a map or directions to our room or parking. And the hotel had no clue where the shuttle was to the wedding who told all their guests that the shuttle was...

The host booked my room as requested, and upon arrival was upgraded. This was above what I expected, the Jacuzzi tub was sure nice after the long trip. And the patio view was so private, nice place to relax with morning coffee. The only thing would have been for a little better slot play. Seemed as no one was winning.

Enjoyed beautiful pool area with lazy river and great bar service and entertainment in evening. Steak House and Oyster bar both had delicious food. Woods Valley golf course is just 10 minutes away and is a beautiful 18 hole course. Wife enjoyed the spa at Harrahs.

The Dive-In Tower is very comfortable, quiet, and has all amenities one would want in a temporary place to stay. The buffet - lunch, or dinner - is fantastic. Soup selection however is marginal. Deserts are magnificent. Customer service is outstanding.

It was a great room and great service. I'll definitely be going back!!! I didn't get a chance to eat there, but I did notice they just opened a Robeks. Everyone was very helpful and nice. I saw a poster that Martin Lawrence was going to perform there at the end of Oct. I plan on coming back real soon.
