We stayed at the Harrah's Council Bluff's on our 4th night during our 48 day west trip from Florida. The typical highrise hotel & casino that offered a good rate. The room had 2 queen beds and was very clean with no cigarette smell from the casino below. They have a 2 terminal computer business office next to the front... More

The hotel part if very good, clean rooms, nice people, etc. Food at the little 24 hr place was good. The casino is very very small right now, I heard a lot of hammering and drilling so maybe they are making it bigger. I would say if you can travel to the other casinos this one is good for sleeping... More

If you are ok with Electricity and water only, this place offers a great overnight experience. However, the sites are narrow and not easy to position a large motorhome and get both slides out on the curb and street side of the coach. Meals and drinks in the Casino are expensive. The RV park is quite reasonable for a nights... More

Stayed one night during College World Series. While the casino was smaller than I expected I still had no problem being entertained and leaving with a few bucks ahead. The hotel rooms were clean and the beds were super comfortable. Check in I was greeted by a friendly staffer and quickly had my key. We had a room that was... More

Went to Harrahs in Council Bluffs Iowa for a weekend getaway. It's only a three hour drive from Kansas City. The Saturday evening we were there they had a concert performed by Collective Souls. If you know this band from the 90's you know how good they are. Harrahs has an outdoor amphitheater for concerts that seats about 3000. You... More

We checked in very late at night, 2 AM, and the hotel clerk was alert and gracious. When we got to our room it was very nice. All areas seemed to be very clean. We slept in a bit and it was quiet. Their were darkening curtains on the windows. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, we sleep well.... More

I stayed here for my 21st birthday; overall i liked it. The rooms were nice though i did have to clean some dust from my window frame. The beds were very comfy. The casino was fun though only 1 level. Our bartender Mark was SUPER AWESOME. He got a group of people together to sing me happy birthday and he... More

Had an enjoyable stay at Harrah's Council Bluffs Hotel and Casino. The hotel is close to the interstate for easy access to other attractions in Council Bluffs and Omaha, which sits directly across the Missouri River. There is, of course a casino (Which has better odds than the Harrah's in Kansas City) and there are two other casinos close by,... More
