No real complaints, it's just we rode the shuttle over the Horseshoe (owned by Harrah's) and had a much better time which made Harrah's seem worse than it really was. Harrah's Casino is a little small, had mostly older patrons, seemed to be noisier than...More

One of the smaller casinos we have been in, but it had a good selection of slots. The video poker was limited in size and they were all short pay. Drink service was good.
