Another good visit NEW CASINO

Our room was perfect, the housekeeper was perfect, the breakfast buffet was great, the new casino is MUCH easier to get to from the hotel and there is no smoke in the casino.

Since our last visit the casino has been downsized. Very few video polka machine. Also found the machines were the tightest we have seen; ever tighter than what you find in the Indian casinos. However, the staff was outstanding, very helpful and very friendly. The music was too loud and certainly not suited for senior citizens. Not planning to visit... More

This is the first time my wife and I have been back since they opened up the new casino. Very nice and clean. We love the layout. Feels very open for such a small space. To me this is one of Harrah's nicer casinos. The major reason it's smoke free and the staff are ALL super helpful and friendly. We... More

I enjoyed my trip to Harrahs, we arrived early around 2pm and the table I like didnt open till latter in the day probably because it was a day in the week that didnt have enough people to play so the most of the things to play were slot machines which i think can take your money faster than the...

Like all Illinois casinos they are smoke free. The atmosphere is nice and they have plenty of machines. A good place to break up a trip for and hour or so.

My wife and I were on the last leg of a road trip from Florida back to the Chicago suburbs. We did not stay at the hotel, but ate dinner there and spent a few hours in the casino. Casino on the smaller side, however, plenty of options for slot players and enough seats at the gaming tables. We were... More

Just came back from my first visit to the new casino. We usually stay overnight, but just drove down for New Year's day. The new casino is located just off the elevators where the long hall and meeting rooms were located (on the walk to the riverboat from inside the hotel). Just before the casino opening is a little place... More

Room good, casino slots mediocre, do NOT eat here. Buffet is a ripoff compared to other properties. All of the staff was polite and helpful throughout the property.
