We recently visited this hotel an additional four times going to & from two family funerals. The staff treated us with compassion and understanding. They did everything possible to make our visit as stress free as possible. Upon passing through the fourth time we decided to stay an extra day just to destress prior to heading on to Colorado.

There's something to be said about arriving at your "home" for the evening and to be welcomed with a genuine smile and warm personality. I couldn't have felt more welcome than I did walking into the hotel. We celebrated my father's 60th birthday and didn't have a place for all of us to get together in the vicinity to cut... More

We spent the night on the way though the area on a weekend and decided to stay at a little above average hotel. This wasn't it. The rooms were a little above average and reasonably clean, but the hallways and elevators were filthy When we were cleaning up in the morning the bathroom sink wouldn't drain. When I told the...

This is a typical Holiday Inn but was generally clean and comfortable. The room was standard sized and includes a mini-fridge and microwave with a modern flat screen. The AC cycled a bit loudly in the room but that is often typical. The hotel shares a small but adequate exercise room with an adjoining hotel. There was also a sauna,... More

We planned a mini family reunion in Council Bluffs IA, a central meeting spot for my husband's far flung brothers. We looked up hotels, decided on the Hampton Inn, made reservations, requesting a suite or larger room and flew in from WA state. The Hampton is joined to the Holiday Inn and then the AmeriStar Hotel/Casino. The Hampton was disappointing,... More

When I made our reservation during a recent family road trip, I didn't realize the council bluffs area was the hot-bed of gambling and casinos - and that the hotels exist to serve that clientele.
