“Very nice hotel and casino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is an excellent place to stay, very clean, and modern. Our girls loved the large glass shower and the curtains opened and shut with a touch of a button. They also loved the indoor/outdoor pool. The only thing that would have been nice to have wifi free for all paying guests. We had a coupon for our hotel room (which was an awesome price) but it still should have came with free wifi. We all enjoyed swimming, eating at the buffet and walking around.

The hotel rooms are very nice and CLEAN and the beds are very comfortable. The "glass" showers are huge and lots of hot water. The Casino is very nice and feels like "Vegas". Have stayed there four times and great service every time. Check-In is fast & courteous, as well as Check-Out. Have enjoyed the buffets too. We are not golfers, but it has a beautiful golf course. I am originally from the area, so when I come back "Home", we always stay here. Great entertainment too. Very close to Iowa City.

An excellent place to stay that is just south of Iowa City. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, the casino is clean and entertaining, and the golf course is outstanding. The one negative is the lack of a coffee shop for a breakfast, forcing you to eat at the buffet.

Thank you for the kind compliments about our resort. It is our mission to be the premier destination resort in the Midwest. Robert's Buffet has many options for breakfast, including made-to-order omelets and eggs in addition to a wonderful variety of pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, and hot breakfast items. Ripple Express, our 24 hour deli/coffee outlet, serves many cold breakfast items including bagels, donuts, and yogurt.

Sincerely,

Dan Franz, General Manager

We went to Riverside Casino with two other couples to gamble and play some golf. Check-in was a breeze, the hotel was spotless and the gambling area was less smoky than some of the other casinos in Iowa. We ate at the buffet and were somewhat disappointed. The roast pork was very dry and the ribs were room temperature. All three couples decided that when we stay at Riverside the next time we would bypass the buffet.

Golf at the resort was fabulous and I would highly recommend it to anyone who plays the game. Practice balls are included in the green fees and we were able to play our round in just over four hours.

What a pleasant experience at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort. I was there with a motor coach load the first part of May and returned myself 2 weeks later. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, attractive, and complete with refrigerator, coffee maker, etc. The dining experiences are from a convenient small restaurant with menu, a deli, Ruthe's up-scale dining, and a full buffet. Golf is fantastic! The casino is vibrant, not dreary, and so pleasant to be in and about.

Room Tip: South side and high up.

We love to hear positive comments from satisfied repeat customers. The hotel was recently refreshed and updated in 2014 and is ready to serve any occasion—leisure, business, or romance. Spring and summer are great times for a golf trip to Riverside Casino & Golf Resort®. Blue Top Ridge Golf Course is a very rewarding course consisting of fun and challenging holes, beautiful scenery, and a top notch professional staff.

Sincerely,

Dan Franz, General Manager

Stayed here for one night on business.

Rooms were nice. Very modern. Kind of like a "W" feel to them.

Casino was ok. Living in Vegas, maybe I'm jaded. Nothing bad.

Tried the cafe downstairs. Food was good. Priced right.

Was very clean and well kept.

Would stay again.

We always like to hear from our guests from Las Vegas as they generally have lots of casino resort experience. While it is difficult to reproduce that Vegas-style place in the middle of Iowa, we do try each and every day to do just that. Thanks for your positive comments about our resort.

We stopped on our way to California, The room was a bit pricey for my tastes, but it was nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good sleep after the people in the room next to us finally quieted down at 4 am. Walla were extremely thin. I wanted to use the wifi, however, I wasn't willing to pay $9.95 per day. I got flustered and thought I'd have one of the 'complementary' water bottles but then I found that they cost $3 each!! Well, that didn't set well.
We did play in the casino, which was very nicse, and the hotel check-in w1as easy. So, because of these issues, I felt I had to lower.my ratimg to 3 stars. I now have to lower it another star because they charged an extra $50 on our charge card! While we enjoyed ourselves, dishonesty isa BIG turn off.

Thank you for choosing our resort to unwind during your trip to California. We have just refreshed our hotel rooms and take great pride in offering a first-class hotel experience. Larger bottles of water are offered in our rooms at a rate of $3 per bottle (at the time of this response), however, we do provide complimentary bottles of water on the gaming floor – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is our policy to charge each guest a $50 refundable deposit for each reserved hotel room in order to cover potential incidental charges or fees. In the event our guests do not have incidental occurences, the deposit is promptly refunded. If a debit card is used at check-in for a deposit, a temporary charge will appear on the cardholder’s account until the source bank returns the funds.

At Riverside Casino & Golf Resort®, we would never intentionally deceive a guest, as that directly contradicts our service statement—“To create a positive, memorable experience with each and every guest.”

Sincerely,

Dan Franz, General Manager
