We went to Harrah's on Thursday and stayed until Monday morning. My father and I spent three full days at the Horseshoe casino (close by) wagering on horse races. When we arrived at Harrah's we let the Valet take care of our car. Harrah's has a shuttle bus that goes back and forth between their hotel and the Horseshoe. Didn't... More

Front desk had attitude from beginning. Elevator chime kept us awake four rooms away from elevator. Except for Casino Host staff the midwest friendliness and attitude was missing. Had gone out of our way to try this property. Will not make that mistake again. Took the shuttle to the Horseshoe and that was the highlight of the trip. No hotel... More

Passing through and thought this would be a decent way to spend a Tuesday evening. Everyone on staff was outgoing and friendly. Bed was comfortable. Didn't make it to the buffet in time to eat. The cafe has a broad selection. I tried a cheddar bacon burger with fries. I would try something else if I stay there again. I... More

I had been somewhat skeptical of booking into a casino hotel and this experience bore out my trepidations on several counts: 1. The shared wall with the adjoining room allowed me to hear the couple next talking. Not what I would expect in a modern, recently built high rise hotel. 2. I had to call the desk twice over two...

Where to start, I do not complain but this place was the worst. First off they charge you for WIFI, you spend 120 dollars for a room for the night and no wifi in this day and age. The casino was about the same as every other one, no complaint here. At 4:00am had someone a couple of rooms down... More

Stayed here a couple times this last week as I travelled through. The first time was a king room (4th floor), second was a suite (10th floor). Both rooms were clean and the beds are very comfortable. Both were non smoking rooms and they were fresh smelling which I find can be difficult to find when hotels allow other rooms... More

Friendly staff. Riverside offers beautiful view of Omaha skyline and fountain at Con-Agra campus. Few casinos offer free wi-fi so bring my own. - definitely not a deal breaker. Favorite spot in Iowa to stay and play
