“Quick Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We made a quick trip to Council Bluffs for a night at the Horseshoe Casino. This hotel is connected right to it so I could go back to the room when I was done, but my husband could stay and play as long as he wanted! The room was VERY quiet, we stayed in a King suite which had a small "living room" area in the front and the bedroom area away from the hallway. Loved it!

Even though this hotel is attached to a casino, the rooms were very quiet. I couldn't even hear the showers in the next room and only occasionally heard doors opening & closing. The downside is that they do not have a complimentary breakfast.

I have stayed in most of the hotels in this area and this one is the one I return to again and again. My room was clean and quiet. Water in the lobby as was coffee. People all smiled, it has an indoor pool and a gym. It also has a direct inside connection to the Horseshoe Casino next door. Their restaurants are all good and the action is typical "casino".

Beds were comfortable, and amenities were all appreciated and we look forward to our next trip.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Request a room on the second or third floor....ground floor rooms....I dont like them.

I had a family wedding in Glenwood IA. This property was one of the closest to the remote wedding location. All of the associates were warm, friendly, and offered a cheerful "hello" upon our contact. Too bad I lost so much money at the Horseshoe Casino which was adjacent to the HGI.

This is a beautiful hotel with many wonderful amenities. We have stayed at several Garden Inns over the years and even though they are all very nice, this one is TOPS! Stay here and I guarantee, you will not be disappointed.

Checked in and the room was hot. Desk said turn down the a/c. I did, returned two hours later - hotter. Moved to new room. Television did not work. You can see where this is going. Not well.
Since I got the room from the Horseshoe Casino, they could not stop the billing after check in.
Horseshoe said I needed to talk with Hotel front desk. Guess what happened. I left. I notified credit card company of problem and refusal to pay. Notified Harrah's that I would not be visiting them again as well.
