Had this not been at the end of a week's worth of stays at similarly priced and featured hotels, all our issues with this property might not have seemed like such a big deal. Oh, wait. Yes they are. We have stayed at many Hampton Inns, and never had a bad experience. Until this one. I was third in line... More

There are no actual sit down restraunts near Hotel. Staff is not real helpful on where to go and eat. I had to just drive around until I found something. And with all of construction going on around Hotel it is alittle hard to get around. Parking lot was dusty and dirty from work going on around Hotel.

Thanks for the trip to the emergency room!! This place was horrible!! I guess smoke free doesn't mean smoke free anymore. As we walked into the room I was blasted by the most horrible, choking smell I have experienced in any hotel. I couldn't pin point the smell or the choking feeling in the back of my throat as we...

The Hampton Inn in Council Bluffs is typical of Hampton Inns, clean, modern, spacious rooms and nicely appointed. There was a nice indoor pool and the breakfast was terrific. Great place for kids. The location is good, not far off I-29 and next to the casino. When we arrived, there had been a mixup with our reservation (through no fault... More

Enjoyed my recent stay in Council Bluffs. Could walk out back of the hotel and see the Missouri River. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of selection. Rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Just a covered walk away from Ameristar Casino. Right off I-29. Would stay again!

I travel to The greater Omaha area several time a year. My preference is the Hampton Inn located next to the Ameristar Casino. I don't go the Casino but enjoy the Sports bar next door and dine at the steakhouse. The hotel is located close to I-80 and I-29.

Clean! Friendly Staff! Classy furnishings in lobby and hotel rooms! Great selection at breakfast! Had a small problem with room lock - called Front Desk - had a person up to our room to fix in less than 5 minutes...I call that great customer service!!

We drove in to go to the zoo. Hotel was excellent location, easy to get to, and very nice. They also said they have a shuttle service to the zoo - we did not use this but I could see where it would be helpful.

Well appointed and located in vicinity of zoo and interstate and casino even though my wife said i couldn't go gamble but i snuck out anyway and lost most of our vacation money. But we had enough left to get in the zoo and thanks to Hampton Inn's complimentary breakfast we had enough to eat for lunch and I hope... More
