This motel is in an excellent location with pine trees on property and generous parking. It has a nice pool and exercise room. The breakfast buffet is generous and well stocked with friendly staff! Rooms are very nice as well, quiet with clean and stocked bathroom supplies and comfy beds :)

We stayed at this hotel last night on a cross-country road trip. I made our reservation by phone and got a slightly better rate than online, friendly assistance from the lady at the desk who greeted us when we arrived later. The hotel was very clean, had a nice pool with hot tub for us and the kids to enjoy,... More

We needed a hotel while my husband was having a surgery. The staff was very caring and offered an incredible medical rate. We were also able to extend our stay by one night since my husband needed to stay extra time in the hospital. We were very thankful to have a great hotel for our needs.

The breakfast the... More

I do business in Council Bluffs several times a year and discovered this hotel some time ago. It is an older property so of course could use some updating. With that said, I go out of my way to stay here. The day manager is a great guy that always smiles and is super helpful. The place may be old... More

The staff was very welcoming, clean, nicely decorated, close to the interstate, Really enjoyed the cookies at check in. There was not enough food at the breakfast buffet and did not like the paper plates. Staff was very friendly.

We went for a mini golf vacation and this was a great place to stay. Great hotel, friendly staff and service with social hour on Mon, Tues and Wed with beer and wine, pizza and other snacks. Conveniently located with plenty of great restaurants and golf courses nearby.

A problem on arrival was quickly resolved by the desk clerk. Our suite was clean & very comfortable. Very quiet. Good internet connection. If you find Fd displayed on the A/C it means that the front desk has to activate it before you use it. An energy saving measure. Breakfast had some new options that we hadn't seen before &... More
