  • I stayed 4 nights at Harvey's on this trip. I played in both Harvey's and Harrah's. There are more things for adults to do at Harrah's, which is nice if you don't want to gamble the entire time. Howev...  more »
  • by day- the casino was quiet- at least in comparison to Vegas or AC. However, at night, the crowd grew younger, the music was all over and the action was typical exciting casino  more »
  • Area is great. Staff very friendly. Lots of machines to lose your money. Wish it had a non smoking area  more »

  • Pleasant staff. It is a bit dated in decor and a little frayed around the edges but a good value. The mattresses are comfortable linens are nice and thick, they definitely didn't cut corners on the linens. Everything was very clean; if worn. There was a full bath and shower as well as his and hers vanity and dressing room along with a private commode. We were given a lovely suite with a stunning view as an upgraded room although right next to elevator for MY convenience it was quiet and restful. All and all a good value for the area. The restaurant selection was also pretty good. I did not visit the Station this visit but I'm sure it will not disappoint. For the younger set it did look like a very full arcade with many choices of machines.
  • Rudest employees I have ever dealt with. I put my cash on the table and the dealer told me "nice try, this is $100 buy in." I had plenty of cash left but instead of spitting in her face we decided to go across the street where we were treated like customers. Same attitude in the food court. Every employee in this casino looked down their nose at us. We also witnessed 6-8 security guards attack some guy that looked very mad but wasn't being violent or disorderly in any way. Maybe we missed what really happened but they had plenty of man power to escort this person away without making a scene. All this casino has is a great location. I will never return. Pick ANY other casino nearby.
  • I don't know how else to describe this casino except tired. It's a bit shabby around the edges, just about everywhere. We went to the buffet, the arcade, and the floor for some 21 and slots action. I don't know about the accommodations, but I would expect them to be as tired as the rest of the facility. With the size of the place I was surprised I couldn't find a least $5 table running 21, everything seemed to be $10 (which at my poor playing skill means the game is over way too quickly). The hostesses were nice and everyone seemed relaxed and the machines were clean. We were here off-season (while the winter people are tapering off but before the summer people arrive) so it wasn't really busy.
  • I love going to Harrahs in South Lake Tahoe. Everyone is always friendly and very kind. This visit we found the shower head covered in some debris, which immediately set me back. I also discovered wrappers tucked into the couch in the room. If a little more attention to detail was given, I would say it would have been perfect.
  • Traveling with 4 kids, we decided to swing in here to hit the food court and give everyone a little variety. There wasn't a lot of choices, but enough. The food was a tad overpriced to be a good value. You always pay more on vacation anyway. We ended up playing in the arcade while my wife played some slots. We left with more money than we had coming in! Great casino. Good entertainment center. Family place for sure.
