Rooms were ready when we arrived. Everything was clean and ready to go. Lobby bar staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The staff was very help full. Need to get room credit straightened out with the honors rewards department.

I have stayed in this hotel several times and I always have a good experience. They have an airport shuttle, I was allowed early check-in, the staff is friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is always delicious and made fresh to order. I will stay again for sure.

The hotel was lovely. The lobby and guest services areas are well-decorated and comfortable. The Inn is attached to the casino by indoor hallways, so you can enter either without entering the other. Was great for children to stay and not have to go through the casino like you would in Las Vegas. The hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends or family traveling to this area. Easy access to Interstate 29 and the surrounding areas.

We truly enjoy staying at the Garden Inns. They have great service and we love having a quality restaurant on site so that we don't have to run around to find a place to eat. Their pools are well cared for and the insulated rooms keep the noise out between rooms.

The only thing we don't care for is the smell of smoke that wafts over from the casino and sometimes their beds don't work quite right.

The hotel was clean and well maintained. The front desk staff was friendly and quick. They were very helpful. A great experience. The breakfast was varied, tasty, and moderately priced. We would definitely stay there again if visiting Council Bluff, Iowa.

Nice hotel everything was very clean and comfortable. The location was great since we had an early morning flight. I would stay again and recommend it to friends. My only complaint is that it was a little pricey for a few hours of sleep and we had to pay for a cup of fruit to go where most hotels have a free breakfast buffet.

Dear Trip Advisor Member,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Hilton Garden Inn Omaha East/Council Bluffs. We truly appreciate your business. I wanted to reach out and also thank you for taking the time to complete a survey on TripAdvisor.

I'm glad that you found our hotel to be clean and comfortable. Also, I am also glad that you found our location close to the airport. I am happy to know that you will recommend us to your friends.

At Hilton Garden Inn, we are an upscale hotel that features a full service restaurant and several amenities that our limited service counterparts do not offer. Because we have an upgraded breakfast (cooked-to-order, fresh fruits and freshly baked pastries), we do charge for this service. I hope this explains why we charge for our breakfast.

Thank you and hope to see you again the next time you are in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area.

Quiet in spite of size, location (next to casino). Excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Good restuarant in building and good food at the casino (have to go thru casino and smoke to get there) These buildings are connected. Hey, guys - Bass Pro is next door!! If you need anything or have questions - just ask - they are very accommodating.
