Where to start, I do not complain but this place was the worst. First off they charge you for WIFI, you spend 120 dollars for a room for the night and no wifi in this day and age. The casino was about the same as every other one, no complaint here. At 4:00am had someone a couple of rooms down... More

Stayed here a couple times this last week as I travelled through. The first time was a king room (4th floor), second was a suite (10th floor). Both rooms were clean and the beds are very comfortable. Both were non smoking rooms and they were fresh smelling which I find can be difficult to find when hotels allow other rooms... More

Friendly staff. Riverside offers beautiful view of Omaha skyline and fountain at Con-Agra campus. Few casinos offer free wi-fi so bring my own. - definitely not a deal breaker. Favorite spot in Iowa to stay and play

We recently stayed @ Harrah's Council Bluffs Iowa. We were COMPed the price of our room because of our Total Reward's Cards (players' casino cards). The Rooms were ready when we wanted them, they were clean and smoke free. The House staff was attentive to our extra requests for extra Bath Towels Luggage racks and soaps and shampoos. The Buffet...

I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The room was great, very clean and comfortable. The staff was exceptional, very nice and always helpful. I've gambled all over the US and have definitely made Council Bluffs my new favorite. Thank you for the perfect vacation.

Great place. well kept and spacious rooms. Staff very nice. Management needs to rethink all the extra charges that at most hotels are complementary. Such as WIFI $13, HBO etc, extra charge and no continental breakfast. These extra charges will cause me NOT to make a return visit and try another location.

Suite 1010 directly over the arena stage had a great view of Omaha and the river. Nice sunsets too. Room was a large two room suite, well furnished with marble and granite, clean, and well maintained. Very quiet too. Would definitely use it again, after a lovely four night stay.

We stayed here for a night to go to a concert at the Cove in the back of the casino. The room was way overpriced and pretty small. At least the room was clean. We weren't expecting wifi to be an additional $10.95 charge per day. Like a casino doesn't rake in enough $ out of people. Also the tv... More

Hi Vern, Thank you for your feedback. Anytime we have a concert in our Stir Cove concert venue, we do experience a rather large volume of traffic. I am sorry your TV signal was not consistent.
