This resort has a nice casino which is always fun for a night out. They have good cocktails and decent food at Curve Bar. My last visit there the bar in the casino was under renovation (maybe taking it out, not sure) so that made the experience less fun as we had to go out into the Curve bar in the lobby to sit down and have drinks. If you are playing at a table in the casino you will get served but if you are sitting at a slot machine I find the servers ignore you for drinks. In general fun place but the service is lacking and has been going downhill for a while now. As well, the shows in the theatre have been lacking lately too. I have been waiting forever for something good to come to the theatre.

We ate at the curve bar, the service was excellent, live music and good drinks. we had the burger and fries, which were excellent. their were tv’s with hockey on it and the atmosphere was lively but not annoyingly loud.

Average casino now unfortunately. We’ve been here lots and are very disappointed to come back and find the lulu lounge bar has been shut down. It was one of the main reasons we came. Lots of slots now to choose from, but now it’s just a casino. We loved that lounge to get a break from the slots. There is no longer a bar in the casino to sit and take a break at. Driving here from up north, we’d now prefer to drive the same distance to the Tulalip casino where there’s a nice mix of gambling, bars and entertainment for all sorts.

I am not a gambler. We are local residents and booked a last minute stay to celebrate our anniversary. Casino seemed pretty typical. Picked up an Encore card with a complimentary $5 credit. Stuck it into a slot machine and just started pushing buttons. I had no idea waht was going on. I think I put it into auto betting. It spit out a cash out voucher and then the credits on the Encore Card ran out. I got $9 out of it. There is a basic food court in the casino if you play long and need to eat. We ate at the Buffet and I have reviewed it separately, as well as the resort suites. Tip: Get the Encore card before you buy food or drinks because the car provides a discount.

I am thoroughly impressed by how clean our room was. It may be one of the cleanest hotels I’ve stayed in.

We had a room in the hotel tower on the 8th floor that looked toward the sky train tracks. I travel with ear plugs but honestly even without them, the noise wasn’t that loud. I heard a few planes but that was okay as well.

The bed was very comfortable but the pillows were huge and too firm. They would be fine as bolsters. Not pillows. I think a chiropractor would be horrified to see anyone sleeping on something so large

There were no windows that opened. I would have loved a fresh breeze to come in. Their was no extraction fan in the bathroom. That was odd. And it took a long time for the mirrors to clear up after a shower.

The shower was lovely. Great pressure but the hot water in the bathroom was certainly above a safe level for the elderly or babies. Shockley hot. As adults though, this wasn’t a big concern for us.

So why only three stars?

Apart from the lack of an opening window and extraction fan, the staff at the front desk in the hotel seemed to have an odd attitude. Almost as though it was a bother for them to assist me. Simple things – I went to ask for the parking code. I was given it coldly. Upon checking out, the encounter was bland. Very bland. No questions about how my stay was. No “Thanks so much for coming — please be sure to come again”. They should honestly contact the Magnolia Hotel in Victoria. The front desk staff there are honestly excited to interact with their guests. They smile. Such a simple thing. A smile. I interacted with three or four River Rock front desk staff. All bland and no smiles or nice small talk.

We had breakfast at the buffet. The waffles were tasty as was the fresh fruit. But much else was bland. To be fair, perhaps the Chinese food at the buffet was good — I didn’t try it.

There was a selection of muffins, yogurts, cereal… but not a lot that would make it worth paying for. Again I’d use the word ‘bland’ here.

The pool looked like fun. We didn’t use it though. Kids would love it.

Location wise, you don’t need a car as you can take the skytrain into Vancouver from the hotel as well as access the ferries and airport using the sky train.

We did have our car with us and the parking was frustrating to be sure! I think it would be a great idea for there to be parking directions in a conformation email. Simple to do. Parking was free which was good.

Overall, three out of five seems like a fair rating. The River Rock really needs to run some in-services with their staff on how to make guests feel like guests and not in-laws they’d rather not deal with.

I do hope the manager can congratulate the house keeping team on the 8th floor. They were amazing. Wow! They know how to clean thoroughly!

Would I return? Yes. That’s how much I appreciate a clean hotel.

The hotel was very clean, housekeeping always had things tidy and restocked each day. When I checked in, Jane was very thorough and gave me any information I might need regarding the room/amenities/area and was accommodating when I asked to be placed in a room away from the Sky Train.

I didn’t eat at the hotel; however, each morning I checked out the Java Cafe in the casino for coffee and it was great.

The hotel is within 10 minutes of the airport. The hotel is attached to the Sky Train station so commuting to downtown Vancouver (Yaletown, Waterfront) only takes 15 minutes. The SkyTrain was easy, clean and safe as well. I would highly recommend it.

We are currently occupying 2 suites at this property and could not be less impressed. We are here to celebrate my daughters birthday which was expressed many times prior to our arrival. We are used to staying at 5 star properties where at least a birthday is acknowledged, not here. We were also treated to an extremely unpleasant phone conversation with The Front Office Manager whom would not even give me her name when I inquired into moving to a suite closer to our daughter. Misinformation was obviously given to us which is why I called the Manager. To end this I am not sure why this Hotel is considered up market as the service is subpar and the suites are tired

Excitement galore in this beautiful facility. First class casino with an outstanding hotel. Convenient to the airport. Great dining in the entire complex

I’ve always enjoyed this casino especially since they built the hotel. There are a few drinking areas within the casino and hotel. You can have a bite to eat and relax when not gambling.

My husband and I went here while waiting for the buffet line to get a little shorter. There is a large selection of gaming machines, ranging from 1 cent, 5 cent, 25 cent, dollar, etc. It was very busy and we did notice some large winners, however we were not included with the winning group.

Right on the sky train line with a major bus hub to yvr airport, tsawassen ferry terminal, vancouver, white rock, new westminster and all places in between. Several restaurants from coffee shop to buffet.

This place has taken so much money from me over the years. But silly me I keep returning.
Great small entertainment venue where entertainment greats have performed in the Theatre.
The Casino always is inviting.
Tramonto and other eating areas are good.
All rooms are suites.
Spa is nice.
Free parking.

I had a fantastic night in the River Rock Casino! The casino was very good to me, and I was given a free room to stay in. The rooms were clean and very nice, the staff was extremely helpful and the food was delicious. A great place to visit.

Lots of great memories at this hotel with our family.
Recently we have found it to be quite expensive and we have chosen other hotels that are more reasonably priced.
Great pool, nice workout area and secure parking.
Really close proximity to sky train which makes it easy to get to Vancouver if you want to head to the city and avoid parking.
Would probably continue to stay here if prices were slightly less.
