This was a last minute get-off-the-road reservation. I called to ask how to get to them, I was only 1 mile away. The employee was not sure how to tell me. The place is nice, rooms spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable. For it being a casino we were hoping for better food service, but they close shop early if you want something other than a snack. They do have a bar and maybe serve food in there but I have a 12 year old, who enjoyed the nice swimming pool.

Our flight was diverted to Omaha due to bad weather. What a neat place, room was fantastic and they had a casino riverboat. The boat doesn’t go out on the river anymore but was neat to learn about it. Food at Bella’s was great and all of the staff was friendly and helpful.

Arrived after a 12 hr drive before our reservation to find out that our room is not available. They gave us another room which was not ready. Waited a hour for another room. Not acceptable. May not come back. Casino was okay and the room.......well see for yourself.

We have been thru Council Bluff several times traveling but never stopped. Update your GPS thru this area because the freeways are new. This trip we stopped for some fun. It’s quite a journey from the parking area thru the restaurants to the casino entrance. It was Sunday afternoon so it was crowded. The casino is several levels so be ready. All in all we had fun.

I am staying here 5 nights to attend a conference for work, and honestly if I had the option to move elsewhere I would. When I checked in I presented my ID as well as our office travel card (the card on file with the reservation) and was told I would not be allowed to pay with this card as it is not specifically in my name. I explained that this was the card our office used whenever any of us had travel expenses and asked what I needed to provide to use the card. The manager was called, but she just continued to inform me that “for my security” I couldn’t use this card because they have no way of knowing that I have permission to use it. I pointed out that it was the card on file on the reservation and was told that didn’t matter, I had to use a personal form of payment in order to pay for the room. This sounds like a dumb thing to be upset about but the charge is over $500 that I will now have to wait a month for reimbursement which means I’ll have to pay it off out of my own pocket or be charged interest on my own card (which I obviously won’t be reimbursed for). The room is fine, although it feels like the air conditioning is having a difficult time keeping up and is therefore ridiculously humid. The walls are also very thin, so I had to listen to my neighbor’s TV until 3 AM. Honestly though, because of this policy I will never do business at this property again.
