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.... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

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.

This was our first vacation in 3 years and first driving vacation in more than 20. The hotel is easy to get to off I29. For a hotel/casino it is not very large. There are 3 restaurants a good Buffet that serves lunch and dinner weekdays, a 24 hour Cafe which we only ate breakfast at and a Steakhouse where... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was outstanding and had everything one needs while at a resort. Variety of slot games and card games was very plentiful and met all levels of entertainment one would expect at a casino. Buffet food was excellent and very reasonable.
