Harrah's casino is an ok place to do a little game-of-chance while the wifey usually winds myself??>>I lose. "Free-room" offer is a little daunting to say the least, but with Wifey winning it is always a good place to hang out. The last time we stayed at Harrah's we had 'Free-buffets, free room and free breakfast in the restaurant. So... More

Not a fan. I am a non smoker left there feeling like I smoked 2 packs of cigarettes. Won't go back. Other casinos don't leave you smelling and tasting like an ashtray

The hotel offers very comfortable beds, but bring your own pillow! The room was clean and large and close to the airport, and a great price for Omaha. I don't care for their casino anymore. They have taken out a lot of games and it's boring! They also have a poor ventilation system so it stinks from all the smokers!... More

A nice casino on land now that they got rid of the boat. Plenty of machines, both old and new. And tables too. Friendly security and it was clean and not horribly smoky.

The 'new and improved' Harrah's Casino Council Bluffs is open and inviting. There are a variety of gaming options,restaurants and snack shop. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The only thing I didn't like is the self parking areas (long walk and I didn't feel safe at night). Hope you have better luck then we did.

Always stay at this Harrahs, always impressed. They offer everything you could imagine, and are in a convenient location. Not to far from Omaha/CenturyLink center, and not to far from what council bluffs has to offer (movie theater/shopping) Will stay again!

The casino gave me an overall welcome feeling as I was not spending or gambling the entire experience, however was not made to feel as if I was any less welcome then the platinum or diamond members of the casino

We stopped by the casino before catching a flight back to Las Vegas, my wife and son had never been there before and they were quite disappointed . The casino is very dark and quiet as a morgue. It has no personality and no "life".
