They didn’t have my name right on my reservation, and it took them a long time to find it.

Nice casino hotel

Very clean and very nice. The only thing the buffet was closed and their other restaurant was out of our price range. But very pleasant otherwise.

Nice hotel / casino right near downtown Omaha.

Pros: Good location. Clean. Friendly casino staff.
Cons: Better bathroom supplies. Please have shampoo and conditioner. Not a combo product. This just doesn't work for women.
We stayed at Harrah's while attending the College World Series. We won some money in the casino which is always a nice bonus and enjoyed our time at the game. The hotel room itself was fairly basic but worked well for our quick one night stay. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the room was clean. Do wish they had shampoo and conditioner rather than just a combo product that doesn't work very well for women's hair and a few more towels in the room but otherwise it was fine. We'd stay there again.
