South Lake Tahoe in October is beautiful. That is a given. But Harrah's is trying hard to push customers away. Their slots have always been pretty tight, no change this trip. But parking fees? Seriously? You can park for free at the neighboring casinos (and gamble there for better odds). Then to add insult to injury, the $28.50 per day resort fee is crazy. I'll pay for any of those services that the resort fee purportedly covers, but I shouldn't have to pay for the ones (all of them) that I don't use.The room was clean and sort of mediocre, not really any nicer than Montbleu or Hard Rock, or Harrah's sister casino Harveys. Two bathrooms are always nice though. Windows that actually open to let the fresh Tahoe air are also nice. The elevators are plentiful, fast, and you don't have to traipse through the casino floor far to get to them.The standout was the room service at Harrahs. I had breakfast each morning, it was prompt, easy to order, and the eggs Benedict were the best eggs Benedict I have ever had ... the hollandaise sauce was superb.We had dinner one night at Sage Room Steakhouse at Harveys. It was as expected for a nice steakhouse, nothing outstanding but not bad. The steak Diane prepared table side was excellent, however the warm spinach salad prepared table side was pretty ordinary. No fancy flaming brandy or fancy presentation at all. The wait staff was attentive and outstanding. They handled my expensive wine well and comped the corkage, so that was appreciated. All in all, the Sage Room was only slightly less expensive than Harrahs Fridays Station steakhouse, yet still as nice an experience and the food was comparable. Both were overpriced though for what you can get at other local casinos or local restaurants. All in all a pleasant, if not somewhat ordinary, experience. If Harrahs would stop nickel and diming for everything the experience would be better.
