The room and food was good but the gambling was a rip off. Black jack was a joke. Machines were very tight which was disappointing. The Casino was very smokey. Buffet was good. Back Stage restaurant was good.

As I sometimes travel alone, feeling safe in a hotel is important too me. I slept just fine, the food at the grill is great and the buffet is not bad. The casino is small but had enough games to entertain me. I love the compact layout, reduces walking, looks great - comfortable, cozy feel. The inside of the hotel/casino... More

Had a nice time here, wide variety of slots. Room was clean & comfy. Property is along Missouri River with a virw of Omaha to the West. I was impressed with the buffet & the 360 Steakhouse was great too.

We went to the Buffet at Harrah's twice during our stay in Council Bluffs. Both times we enjoyed the food and the ambience. I especially liked the made to order pasta bar. The chef offered to give me as much as I wanted instead of just preparing a dish without inquiry.

I always enjoy staying at Harrah's because it is ideally located. It's a short drive to Omaha. There are several great shopping and restaurants nearby. The 360 Steakhouse has fabulous views and excellent food. I wanted to try the buffet for breakfast, but it isn't open early during the week. The valet staff are superb. The front desk people are...
