Went to the casino and won!! Customer service was excellent. Clean place, nice location. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking to have a great time. This is the only place I would come to when back in the area.

Rooms are fantastic small fridge in room however No microwave. Regular hairdryers (not the small motel crappy ones) Nice view, Casino is clean and well supervised, not as many slots or different options as Horseshoe. Shuttle is punctual and clean, Backstage grill is great!!! Buffet is HORRIBLE and EXPENSIVE ($20 per person) Biggest issue .... No laundry facilities (they need...

Great place to stay. Friendly staff. Enjoyed our meals. Had a nice view of Omaha and the Missouri River from the room. There were even a few golfers on the course the days we were there. Feel safe and comfortable at Harrah's.

Having a couple outing here at Harrah's was beyond exceptional. We had a great time. The atmosphere was great, staff was wonderful, and the musky-smokey smell was masked (not too thick). Overall a great experience and will be returning.

The rooms have always been clean and comfortable and spacious. The staff is willing to answer questions and help when asked. The food is very tasty and has generous portions. Close to areas of interest without being in the big city.

Harrahs is a fine comfortable hotel casino. The rooms are spacious, but not elegant. Staff is professional, courteous. Beds and bathrooms are average. If you are looking for the Ritz, keep looking. If you are looking for an affordable spot, stop in. The casino bar was full of wall to wall sports. Great $1 beer special while I was there....

Harrahs CB is always delightful. River room Omaha skyline views are splendid. The heavy top-sheets bedding is very uncomfortable, squashing big feet toward cramping late at night, curable only by stuffing the too-hard pillows under the covers at the foot of the bed. Some people actually win at slots - I saw them. We had the best meal ever at...

Nice clean rooms with coffee and refrigerator. Decent beds and pillows. Clean well stocked bathrooms. Good choice of food, and small but nice casino, except tight slots. We didn't play any table games here, but it sounded like those who did were having a good time. Shuttle bus to Horseshoe casino so we didn't have to take the car out,...

This hotel is not a comfortable place to stay. The beds are something out of the dark ages and very uncomfortable. The lighting in the room was very dim. If you play in the casino, you might get your room for free. I couldn't wait to check out. The restaurants in the hotel are very good. The staff is friendly...

We checked in on Thursday and the room was okay, not great. Casino is small. BJ tables are usually full. Plenty of slot and video poker choices. Video poker at both bars. The cafe has pretty good food.
