Reviews - Harrahs Reno Hotel

Yet another example of how pathetic Harrahs has become

As with every Harrahs I have stayed at, the place was pathetic. We asked for a room upgrade, and was told we were given one. The room was nice, back in the 70s when it was new, but was now very worn, dirty, and VERY small. We never did figure out what the "upgrade" was, but if the room we got was one of the nice ones, the others must have really sucked. The beds were hard as rocks and very short and narrow. I am only 6' tall and my feet hung over the end of the beds. The heat/air unit was so old that you had to manually turn the blower on and off, making it impossible to get a constant temperature in the room. The food prices were outrageous. Any meal there will cost about $30 for 2 people, even breakfast in the cheapest restaurant there. I played slots the entire week we were there, and never once saw anyone win a jackpot. There were transients walking around the casino begging for handouts, and hardly any sign of security. The slot payout was set so low that I never once had the inpression that there was a chance of winning anything. Now I know that there is no real reason to expect to win, but since I didn't see anyone else doing well on the slots either, that just tells me the casino is being really greedy and the slots are way too tight. We traveled in with a group of people from our area, and when we got there, nobody that worked there new anything about our group or our reservations even though we booked months in advance. It ended up taking over an hour to get it straightened out and get our "rooms." Harrahs casinos in general in my opinion, are a bad place to take your money. They are heartless and greedy.

Thanks from me and millions

When Harrahs acquired the Horseshoe you ripped out the Casino Grille and discontinued the fabulous Binion burger -- I just returned from Vegas and see you have restored the grill and this fabulous burger -- the worlds best--you also brought back the greatest Pumpkin Pie with real whipped cream ---unbelivable--may the Binion Burger live forever -- I used to sit at that snack bar and talk with Jack Binion over coffee and burgers -- Benny would be very proud of you--keep up the good work.
Highly recommended

Stayed here in Aug 2002. Our room had been recently remodeled. I thought the room was pretty nice. The picture on this site is nothing what it looked like. I would recommend to anyone to stay at Harrahs.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Harrahs Reno Hotel

Nice Rooms. Great service

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just came back from a midweek trip to Harrah's Reno. I booked through the Harrahs website. room was 30 dollars. 34.14 all together. Room was very nice. Check-in staff was awsome. Best service downtown.

I did not bother in the casino. I like the odds accross the street at Cal Neva much better.

For 30 bucks this is the best reno room value I have ever come accross. It's one of the nicer rooms in town all together. Marble counter tops and all.

Could have been better

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at Harrah's Reno one night, then Harrah's Lake Tahoe the next two nights....no comparison. Reno was old, worn, bad beds and inadequate air conditioning. Tahoe seems to have been recently renovated with two bathrooms and a sitting room in every standard king room. Nothing to recommend Reno. Like a tiny Vegas with no redeeming qualities or other things to do than gamble. Won't go back.

s Reno vs. South Lake Tahoe

from A TripAdvisor Member
If I had a choice of Harrah's I think South Lake Tahoe is better. First of all if you don't get a room to the "far" west wing you get train noise. The beds are a bit too firm and the bedspreads ratty with a few burn holes in the carpet (in a non-smoking room). I don't gamble so can't give any advice on the slots or tables. It is convenient to other popular casinos and love the walk through El Dorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus. My second room choice after moving to a quieter side overlooked south of the town over a narrow river. The lights at night were fabulous. The food is good - Cafe Napa has a great prime rib dinner special for $6.99. All in all a fairly good stay but think an upgrade to Siena or Silver Legacy would be better.


from Dixie_Hollins
Stayed at Harrah's Reno from 17-20 June '04. Hotel/Casino staff are outstanding. Experienced pros all devoted to providing guests a great experience. Check in/out went smoothly and room received matched reservation. West Tower Room was clean, quiet and spacious. Hotel offers a full size pool and spa to guests. Numerous restaurants/buffet had good food. The Chinese selections are very good. Excellent value for price paid.

s is the place to stay in the Biggest Little City in the World

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you stay at Harrah's, you never have to leave the hotel. We stayed four days, and enjoyed every minute. The Staff is courteous and friendly.
The restaurants are Top Notch. The rooms are exceptionally clean and modern. What more could you ask for....

Terrific place!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed for three nights in the East Tower. At $49 a night, it was a terrific deal--king bed, large room, attentive service. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and valet parking was quick and efficient. The location is great since you can walk to all the downtown casinos. Based on other reviews, we did not play the slots there but instead went to the Eldorado, Silver Legacy, and Circus Circus. We would stay there again without question.

s knows customer service

from dausagolfer
My wife and I spent Saturday night at Harrah's and booked our room from Sacramento that morning. We received a teriffic offer much better than the other casinos made. The room was spotless. From the vallet to the Keno runners Harrah's did not miss a beat. We will definetly staying at Harrah's when we visit Reno!

Downhill Slide

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I started making trips to Harrah's in Reno nearly 8 years ago. What fun! I actually won several jackpots in those early years. But we have slowly witnessed a radical change take place over the years until we hear very few "ka-ching-ka-ching" sounds eminating from the slots--you know that wonderful music they make when you hit a jackpot! Someone in management has taken the notion of the "one-armed bandit" to "two" fisted money grubber! I am not the only one, most players I talk to in the hotel grumble. Sure, I still play a little, enough to keep up some comps. The hotel is still a nice place to stay.
The staff are a bunch of swell folks. But come on guys, like loosen up, like literally, then maybe you'll get back some of the folks who walk across the street and stick their quarters and silver dollars in Cal Neva's slots.

tight machines

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at Harrahs in Reno over the New Years Eve holiday. We have stayed at Harrahs in the past and the visit was quite nice, however this time something had changed. Harrahs now has the tightest slot machines in Reno. On New Years eve, you could not hear one machine paying off. Also the Steak House Restaurant is overrated and overpriced for what you get. The rooms in the west tower are small. The only good thing about this stay was the view of the Reno "strip" and the view of the mountains.


from A TripAdvisor Member
As usual Harrah's lived up to its good reputation...rooms were clean, comfortable and newly renovated...the cleaning staff was helpful and attentive. The only negative aspects were the machines. They were uterly without mercy!!

Top Local Tips for Reno

Lake Tahoe-Virginia City Do yourself a favour. Get away from the gambling machines and take one of the bus tours to South Lake Tahoe and Virginia City. South Lake Tahoe is so beautiful. Take a ride on the gondola for magnificent views. Virginia City is a terrific, historical experience. You can easily imagine the miners cavorting with dance hall girls and drinking and dancing the night away in their free time. A wonderful experience.

Stay in Lake Tahoe Lake Tahoe is close to Reno and is safer after dark for women

casinos Some tables still have a low $3/5 buy in if your gambling budget is limited. Look for the little boards placed on the table displaying the buy in and visit all the casinos in the downtown as they all have a different character and clientele ---- all human life is here if you enjoy people watching!!
