I like to come to Harrah's as often as I can. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Casino is good sized and close to elevators and I always feel safe. Great food choices and close to downtown Omaha/shopping. I would recommend this as a great place to stay and PLAY!

Oten times casinos can be places that you just get lost in a crowd but Harrahs staff greets you and if they see you looking lost the approach you with concern. From the host bringing your beverage to the Chef carving your Ham they make you feel special every time.

I had received an offer for two free days at Harrah's. I decided to take them over a Monday & Tuesday night. Upon arrival to my surprise, we were placed in a suite on the 10th floor. It was absolutely amazing! A great view of the river, from both the bedroom and the attached living area. The decor was very...

Have played in casinos from coast to coast and living in the Midwest, there are several options in the Council Bluffs area. The Harrah's location is a reasonable option for that alternative entertainment spot. Would be nice if they would ease up on the slots a little but your mileage may vary. It's gambling right? The risk play is just...

Mentioned in last question how I appreciate the compactness in location of casino, restaurants, and rooms...with a minimal hip problem, this makes the experience more comfortable. Also enjoy tv coverage particularly during NCAA basketball! And selection of slot and video poker machines.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The casino is not huge but adequate. The free shuttle runs every half hour to the much larger Horseshoe Casino. The only problem was there was no place to get necessities such as toothpaste, aspirin or combs.

Hats off to the valet !! they do a great job setting the mood as well as build the excitement up. Not sure if you are training them or they are just naturally friendly. My vote for a raise would go to the young lady on the evening shift. she has the best attitude !!!
