Room was great, gaming great, location great. Food is decent but service seems to lack... Should be a way to keep their employees more engaged. I love the pool and swim up bar. Great place to spend a weekend with no worries as long as you can overlook the bored and uninterested employees. Summer is the best time to go!

We stayed two nights for a friend birthday and was hoping for similar exciting atmosphere as Vegas. It turn out okay, the pool was nice but was small and the vibe across the whole casino was an easy going crowd more for family. We ordered drinks 3X from 3 servers then it finally came

This facility hosts accommodations one would expect of a high in facility on the Las Vegas strip. not in San Diego. This is further topped of by the new North wing, this place is very futuristic, comfortable and privacy to satisfy the most discriminating.

Overall experience was great with lots to do besides gambling. Great buffet, entertainment, nice bars and pools to enjoy. Housekeeping does a great job of cleaning your room and the pool or mountain scenic views are pleasing to the eyes.

Priced well for the getaway. Combine rooms with events and feel like you own the place. Rode an elevator with Zaak Wilde, and shook Eric Johnsons hand at Harrahs Starbucks. Trace Adkins was down home friendly, and Billy Cox was a treat. We keep going back, and Harrahs delivers.
