I heard another customer complain that their "non-smoking" room smelled like the previous renter had smoked in it! Breakfast was poor, at best (biscuits and gravy - gravy was "gummy" and gross).

While we enjoyed our stay at the Council Bluffs Days Inn, 2 things stood out as particularly noteworthy and pleasing: the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and the comfort of the beds.

This is an older hotel, but it is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The first thing I noticed when I came in was that the lobby smelled a bit like stale cigarette smoke.

Found this hotel in Lake Manawa for our zoo trip. Stayed 2 nights. Everyone was friendly, rooms were clean, good continental breakfast. Lots of places to eat out, minutes from the zoo. Will stay here again if in the area.
