The rooms are spacious. The complimentary breakfast had a lot of variety, and always stocked. Both bold coffee and regular coffee was available. There is plenty of places to sit and relax while you ate or just socialized. Love the big bar table in the middle of the breakfast area. The work out room had just enough equipment to have... More

We picked this Hampton Inn because it was less expensive than those in Omaha, NE, across the river from Council Bluffs. We were NOT disappointed at all. In fact, we think we got the better Hampton Inn by staying here. Our room overlooked the Missouri River. We felt like we were on a cruise ship with the view out our... More

The hotel is very well cared for, quiet and close to many forms of entertainment. Great family environment! We spent a whole day at the zoo and returned to a quiet and comfortable room. Great value. Just across the Missouri river from Omaha.

Woke up to a bug crawling on my neck! Found another one on sheet at the foot of the bed. Manager wasn't on site. Maintenance engineer said they were grain beetles from fields around the property and not bed bugs. I have a dog, own a rustic lake cabin, have a travel trailer I camp with, and I never have...

The AC/heating unit was very dirty. Looked like it had never been cleaned. Very bad smell in the hotel room that made me scared of what I might be breathing in. I asked the front desk to have Maintenance clean the unit, but it wasn't cleaned during the next three days I was there.

We stopped at the Hampton Inn Council Bluff on our way out West. The property is attached to a couple of other hotels which are attached to a casino in Council Bluffs, IA. Had we done better research we probably wouldn’t have booked reservations and stayed at this property. The Hampton was “ok” but it probably is more those that... More

This was our 2nd stay here and it was just as good as the first. Great bed and very good complimentary breakfast. Attached to the casino and easy walk to buffet restaurant. Plenty of parking and convenient to interstate.

Been staying at Hampton Inns for years with minimal problems. This motel has tons of issues. Noise AC unit, lobby being remodeled, breakfast was terrible, staff was less then professional. Breakfast featured powered eggs and under cooked sausage. AC rattled all night.

We arrived on a Sunday evening after a long drive all the way across Nebraska from Denver. The room was clean, and nice sized. We loved the little ottomans that rolled and appreciate nite lites in the bathroom. This hotel is located next to a casino, so I imagine it could get crazy. Our only negative was the pool, which...
