First of all, you don't have to get up at 4 a.m. to make the 6 a.m. flight out of Des Moines. And from there, it just gets better. Casino has all the action you want or need. There's food, shopping, a fabulous indoor-outdoor pool - which we had all to ourselves - golf, a spa...everything to make you feel like you're worlds away instead of just a couple of hours' drive. Plus, no seamy underbelly, like what you get when you go to Vegas. We stayed in the hotel, a huge room with view of the golf course and pool. Rooms are quiet, clean, the shower could hold you and all if your friends if you wanted. Comes with fridge, in-room good coffee in your room, a safe. Basic TV, but shoot, you can watch 437 channels at home, now can't you? On this trip, I won 30 bucks at the slots which paid for my dinner. Very pleasant, wonderful, romantic overnight.

Room Tip: Next time, I might book through Expedia. They're about $20 cheaper, but you cannot specify non-smoking as you can when you book with the hotel itself.

I took advantage of a Riverside reward promotion and stayed at the resort on Thursday, August 29th. I was pleased with the entire process of reserving the room, checking in, the cleanliness of the room, the friendliness of the staff both at the hotel and at the casino. Slots were loose. Even tried my luck at the table games. Free beverage bar in the casino. I was limited with time so did not get a chance to try the restaurants. I will be back to try the golf course as I hear it is well designed.

We take great pride in both our hotel rooms and the friendliness of our staff. The next time you're here, be sure to try either Robert's Buffet, Ripple Diner, or Ruthie's Steak & Seafood - all wonderful choices. You heard correctly about our golf course - it was designed by Rees Jones and is one of the top courses around.

Thanks,

Dan Franz
General Manager

We stayed here for a friend's wedding. The room was clean and quiet. The shower area was different, but looked cool. We enjoyed the Aveda products. The Sunday morning buffet was good and had plenty of options. We also got to spend a little bit of time in the honeymoon suite and it was impressive.

The hotel seemed very quiet - I am not sure if they just were not busy or the rooms are just this quiet! Bed and pillows were pretty decent. The bathroom - I get the design with the shower curtain outside the bathroom. Easy to clean, reduces mildew etc. but. If you are shy, this could be a struggle. There is a bit of a burlesque feel to there not being a solid wall between the person in the shower and the other in the bed still. Room was pleasantly large and very clean. Wonderful dinner at Ruthies!

Always a great place to spend a night while traveling through Iowa City. We only get to stay here twice a year but always enjoy, even though winning any money seems harder to come by than a few years ago. Great hotel rooms, love the walk-in shower.
