Very pleasantly surprised by experience over two days at this hotel in Council Bluffs. Easy to find since it is just off the interstate next to Casino (hard to miss if you don't know the area.) Hospitality from the front desk and in the breakfast area was friendly, casual and helpful. Indoor door and fitness center are easily available are... More

I traveled cross-country solo in April 2015 and planned my stops around Hampton Inns because I decided to pamper myself. LOCATION: Located off Interstate 29, it’s also an easy ride from Interstate 80. The hotel is connected by a walkway to the Ameristar Casino, which offers various food choices without needing a car. ROOM: The room was clean and well... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. The value for the price was excellent. I particularly like the complimentary breakfast. There was a good selection of hot and cold options and the food was also very tasty. It was what you would expect from this level of hotel.

I love staying at Hampton Inn's. They are always very consistent. The rooms are decorated nice, they are impeccably clean. The service is fantastic. I couldn't be more disappointed in this location. It showed me just the opposite of all the qualities that I expect from Hampton Inn. If this would have been my first visit to Hampton Inn, the... More

We are driving from Massachusetts to Utah to begin our tour of National Parks between Moab, Utah and the Grand Canyon, AZ. We always stay at Hampton Inns when we travel and have always had satisfactory internet service on previous stays from Maine to Florida. They seem to have instituted a new "high speed" service which comes with a surcharge... More

We loved being on the 5th floor. We loved the complimentary beer and wine along with snacks during the early evening hours. The complimentary breakfast was graced with a nice variety including fresh fruit, tasty omelet and wine.

No surprises for a Hampton inn. Clean, comfortable. Pretty good breakfast. Easy access to casino thru hotel. For a Hampton in it felt more like a Hilton and the price was inline for being attached to a casino. I will be going back when in the area.

The facilities at the hotel and the service were quite nice. Shuttle service to the Century Link Center was especially convenient with 24/7 shuttle service within a 5-mile radius of hotel. Room rates are inflated everywhere not just at Hampton Inn so that makes the hotel unusually high for this facility. Would stay here again as reception was excellent and... More

Got a last minute reservation because of a cancellation and boy are we glad we did. Went for the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder meeting. The staff were super nice. The rooms very clean and the bed was so comfortable I don't ever remember sleeping that well in a hotel. Complimentary breakfast was delish, with lots of non carb options including premade... More

Our second floor room was clean and large with a nice-sized bathroom that offered a large vanity. It was "stocked" with four-of-each bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths, although, the door handle was "loose" and the sink faucet's filter was corroded and turning "green." This is one hotel chain that furnishes a more-than-adequate assortment of individual toiletries, e.g. mouthwash,... More
