4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have been here several times. They have a decent amount of restaurants and bars. We have a good time here and the rooms are really nice. My only complaint was that the last time we thought the resort staff in the casino area could have been friendlier. The front desk check in staff we're very nice tho.

We enjoyed our stay here because the rooms were newly renovated and the staff was friendly and helpful. The casino is large with a variety of slot machines and a few tables. There is a wonderful pool but you need to understand that on weekends there is a live band and lots of young people are partying. They did divide... More

She asked how I would be paying and I told her we had cash. After about 25 minutes she came back with only one beer and asked if we... More

The hubby and I enjoy staying and playing at Harrah's because of their friendly staff. This time around, we stayed in their South Tower. The room was spacious and clean and I like the fact that the toilet has a separate space in the bathroom. Because they added a day club, Harrah's can get busy on the weekend with drunk... More

The resort is enjoyable for both the gambler and non-gambler. We enjoyed the three pools and especially the floating river pool. The food service around the pool seemed to be a little slow but the food was good. The room was spacious, well decorated and clean. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were firm. The buffet was good with... More

My wife and I were looking for a weekend getaway, and chose Harrah's. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room was in the Dive Tower. It was well appointed, and quite comfortable. The pool was great, from the swim up bar to the waterfall. We had an excellent meal at Fiore. The food was outstanding and the service... More

We spent an evening and overnight after a concert Friday evening. The staff was friendly and our room was very nice. The grounds are lovely and the pool and lazy river look like a lot of fun. We stayed in the South Tower in a West facing room (the same side as the lazy river). Our only complaint was that... More
