We have stayed before. For a night it fine. Feels a little more used everytime we stay there. Air condition rattled all night. Rooms feel used and not refreshed. We keep coming back because of how close it is to the zoo. Breakfast was a big drop off this year. Bland Bland Bland

Clean good size room, bed was comfortable. Great location, just off the highway. Breakfast was the best! Staff was friendly. Lobby was clean, no complaints with anything. An easy 5 stars if you don't need the pool or hot tub.

We stayed at Country Inn & Suites in Council Bluffs IA for a weekend family trip to the Omaha Zoo. The hotel is only 10 minutes from the zoo and downtown Omaha. Also, Bass Pro Shop is within walking distance. Our room was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was good and was continuously refilled. The indoor pool was really... More

Nice hotel. Friendly staff. What you would expect from a Country Inn. But don't park in the overflow lot. It's lighted poorly and there are no security cameras. Overnight, someone stole several thousand dollars with of equipment from our trailer.

Just driving through or staying for a while this is a great motel to stay at. Clean, comfortable, great beds, great staff and close to the casino to boot. It was easy to find and get to as well. The staff were very informative and helpful.

This Country Inn is a fairly nice, clean hotel, with a nice pool. That said, the continental breakfast was not very well stocked, and could use some improvement. Granted, the hotel was at capacity, but still, the floor was very sticky and they were out of most everything but cereal and plain bagels. Also, it could really use another elevator.... More

This is a big casino property. The hotel entrance is on the opposite side of the building as the parking lot entrance from the street and it could use better signage. I booked using a third party and got put in a smoking room (I'm assuming for that reason). It REALLY smelled like smoke. That alone made my stay unpleasant.... More

What a great experience. I travel for business a lot. I'm always happy when I stay at a Country Inn & Suites. But this one was exceptional. I used Hot-wire to book, I had a room on the 1st floor near the exit that allowed me to park..right outside. The staff was over-the-top friendly. Stephanie took care of a couple... More
