Not a location for kids. We visited Omaha Zoo and decided to stay here, but absolutely no kids activities. Very limited restaurant choices. We would visit this area more often if they have more kids activities, besides Omaha Zoo. The rooms need to be updated with new furniture, etc.

They say the pay back is 89.7%. I doubt that!! Payback is slim to none, after putting in hundreds of dollars. I know they are going to get my money but it could be a lot slower. Drinks must be ordered from the slot machines but if you are with someone; it is quite challenging. Need better ventilation systems for...

OK for what you pay, Its just a parking lot with Water, 50 amp Electric and Sewer around the perimeter of a large parking lot. No Reservations, just show up and pay your money in the employees entrance of the hotel where a guard will sign you in. But its the closest to downtown Omaha and with regular security patrols...

I have stayed at Harrahs 4-5 times in the past three years. The rooms are always clean and nice with a refrigerator in the room, however the beds are soft.

They upgraded our room as we were celebrating our 60th Wedding Anniversary. They gave us great discounts on food. Even though it is a casino, we found other things to do and had a great time. The area around the hotel was very nice. I would by far recommend this as a destination or a stopover.

You are sure to enjoy your stay. From the location which is close to most anything one would need to the food and service, it has been an enjoyable experience for me. There is no doubt where I will stay on my next trip to the area. I guess if there is one negative it would be that time flew...
