Decent size casino with hotel and pool plus lazy river. Event center is small and hosts some good shows. The buffet is not worth it but there's other dining options.

Harrah's is an awesome hotel out in the middle of backcountry nowhere San Diego. A great evening or weekend day trip for San Diegans, it's been newly remodeled and offers stunning views of the surrounding valley and mountain backdrop from every room. The beds are ridiculously comfortable -- and the bathroom!! I think I've seen hotel rooms smaller than the bathroom. With a separate glass paned shower, deep tub, vanity lights and a magnifying mirror at the sink, and a private toilet, it was pretty much the bathroom of my dreams. Harrah's also has an inhouse concert venue, with some pretty reputable names. There's a fantastic Mexican cantina with good prices and a great happy hour (try the blood orange margaritas.) And the pool area is amazing - an adults only swim-up bar, jacuzzi and waterfall, and a lazy river.

Stayed the night here for the 240th Marine Corps Ball. Great event location. Gorgeous room we stayed in (the Dive Tower) with a gorgeous view of the pool! Love the bathtub/shower combo!

Went to Harra's for the Hop Heads and Dreads beer and reggae fest. Parking is free, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the event was well organized. Considering the heat, the event had ez-ups equipped with musters and plenty of drinking water.

First of all, the room, the pool and the place to eat where Great! The Buffet was one of the better Buffets we've had! $32.95 is a little much for the Buffet!
Next if you go there to play the Slots, well GOOD LUCKY! The Slot machine are SUPER TIGHT! You get on a roll and then Bam! you loose everything! Also watch your Machine, we had an Asian Lady STEAL the money from our Slot Machine, My wife left her machine for 30 second, and the Asian Lady next to her cashed out our machine and cased the ticket!
We spoke to few people the playing and they all said the same thing about the Slot, and some where complaining about the table!
Also Harrah's Ricon caters to the Upper Card holders, they will run a promotion, but only the Seven Seas and the Diamond card hold get the good stuff!

I love playing the Inca slot machines and getting all the bonuses. There's a bar conveniently located at every end as well. It's never too crowded so this is my favorite casino in SoCal.

For a great pool in the San Diego area, look no further than Harrah's Rincon. I've been to two pool parties here and I love it! Although it's about an hour outside of San Diego, it's still much closer than Las Vegas and you get the same vibe. There's a swim-up bar and a lazy river. On some weekend days, they have a DJ and it turns into a party-like atmosphere. You don't have to be a guest at the resort to use the pool and they charge a different amount per day depending on the DJ if you're not a guest.

If you get tired of the sun, you can always head into the casino for a bit of gambling or check out the delicious buffet!

The Buffet at Harrah's you can dine in Italy, China,Japan, Mexico and the US and never leave the country. Dinner has a nice selection of seafood and on Friday and Saturday the crab legs are served. For dessert they will spin you fresh cotton candy always a good treat. I love the selection and freshness of the food on the buffet there is someone at each station ensuring that the selection is always fresh and ready to serve. No empty stream trays here.

A very nice Casino that has undergone some great renovations. They host concerts and have a hotel with nice amenities. I like the location, great for a local stay-cation.

A fun getaway/staycation for San Diegans and it’s only about an hour away! Harrah’s is a one stop stay with a casino, the gorgeous newly renovated resort, multiple restaurants, pools, a spa, and lots of fun. We visited for a Fashion Week San Diego event and had a blast. The event was a seven course culinary tasting prepared by Executive Chef Jon Palsson who heads the culinary team at Harrah’s Southern California. The food and delish drink pairings were to die for!! The ballroom decor was gorgeous. Parking was easy. Staff was accommodating. We didn’t gamble, visit the spa, or spend a day at Dive their Vegas style pool party, but I will return for all of the above and you should too!

Full Disclosure: We get comped here, so our experience tends to be of the highest level.

That being said, I think that Harrah's Rincon has a lot of great things going for it.

1. They have a great pool, and do a lot of live music events that creates a fun atmosphere.

2. Some great restaurants- Fiore (great steakhouse), and Pink's Hot Dogs just to name a few!

3. Open Sky Theatre- Fantastic groups come through here for a very affordable price (with every seat being a good one IMO).

Their poker room is a little bit out of the way, and their casino floor is not gigantic, but overall if you are in the San Diego area, this is a great spot to come and let off some steam.

4 Stars.

One of the many casinos in the area but Harrah's is the only one that has a real Vegas feel to it. It's really a casino in the middle of nowhere, actually it's on an Indian reservation but there isn't much else around there. There's a Pink's located in the casino which is kinda cool but not nearly the same selection as the original one in LA.
