The hotel Harrah's has built is very nice. The lobby, the elevators, the rooms are all in outstanding condition. It is very quiet and comfortable with little noise from below. We were on the second floor and expected to hear some car noise and such but there was none! The hotel employees are friendly and warm and I recommend this hotel highly. The hotel is child friendly, but not animal friendly. Most other Harrah's properties have adapted pet friendliness, but not Metropolis. If you are looking for "Las Vegas Style" casinos? Don't go here. The action is dull, and the boat needs to be replaced..

The hotel rooms are nice, pretty modern & clean. The location is great if you are going to play at the casino, since the hotel is connected to the casino via a walkway. The hotel is on the river & the views are nice. Their is no pool or activities. The room does not include breakfast. We usually get breakfast as a comp from the casino..otherwise it is a bit expensive for what they offer. there is a hardies close by, other then the casino not much else happening in metropolis. Metropolis does have a nice park close by, a statue of Superman and few other superman related items on the town square. Paduch, ky is an exit or two away from metropolis and has shopping and the lower town art district and several restaruants that are worth checkingout. The casino itself has few if any $5 tables...The casino also charges for drinks....FYI

Room Tip: As players club members, we receive free room offers in the mail which are great. Offers not valid...

so, the good is that rooms were clean, staff friendly, am breakfast decent with wafflemakers and omelets to order for 9 bucks, valet free (tips of course). the bad--small casino,casino far from hotel for those that are older, need room key to operate elevator, $25 to rent the motorized scooter if you need walking assistance, no club/bands on premises. husband not happy with law in casino that says one drink every 20 minutes. price was decent, but call harrah's direct with a rewards card to get a deal-- expedia was much more expensive. best to go during the week for a cheap deal. metropolis was a friendly place, i think best to go during one of the festivals as otherwise not too much going on. note; hotel is not right off the highway, is about 5 minutes away. no fast food directly nearby but you can walk about a 1/4 mile to a few bar/grills. we had bbq from the annual "blues and ques" festival. there is a walgreens in downtown metropolis if you need it. you can also go across the river to Paducah, KY in about 10 minutes--go to the mall, the movies, chain restaurants, wal-mart, etc. also a racetrack but we didn't check that out.

Room Tip: get a total rewards (harrah's casino) card and call before you go. they told us that for a satur...

The beds at this place were awesome - so much so they even rated a comment from my husband - and we compared every hotel after that on the trip to these beds. Internet was free, which really surprised me at a casino hotel. Had a fridge in our room, which was very nice. Elevators required a key card to access - a nice feeling of better security.

In the other comment regarding children, this is a casino hotel, so I wouldn't expect it to cater as much to families.

Room was very clean - all amenities that one would need. It was a nicer room than I have paid several hundred for at conferences.

We did visit the snack bar - food was ok - nothing fantastic but it did fill us up.

We stayed here for one night on our way home to Iowa. It was last minute and we got a King Room for $45 for the night. The staff was great upon arrival and the room was well worth the $45 bucks. On top of that I signed up for a players card at the casino and the gave us 2 free buffetts just for signing up, I nver even spent any money in the casino. So I paid them $45 to stay, and they gave me $30 in free food, not a bad night for $15 bucks total. I would stay here again if I needed a place to crash for the night.

My husband, son and I stayed overnight on our way to St. Louis. All we were looking for was a clean room at a reasonable price. We got a fabulous room at Harrah's, very spacious and comfortable. For the price we could not beat it!!

Room Tip: Might want to look onto the Ohio River rather than the parking lot!
