“Never Ever Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I will never use this hotel again, nor will I ever recommend it to anyone I know. I booked a room in April 2013 on the internet for a two week stay in June 2013. When I arrived there from overseas, they could not find my reservation, then when they did find it, it had been cancelled for some mysterious reason. The manager said something about overbooking??? They then found a room, but it was a smoking room and it absolutely reeked. It was disgusting. I had wanted a non smoking room as my daughter has asthma, so I refused this room as I just could not stay in it under those conditions. The manager was smug, and not at all concerned that my original reservation had been cancelled by one of the staff. I strongly suspect the room was given to someone else, as the reeking room they rustled up for me was for someone who had booked the next day. This kind of attitude is just not good enough, and I don't care how cheap they are, I will NEVER make a booking with them again. This was the Value Place in Council Bluffs Iowa by the way. Avoid at all costs.

This is a great place to stay. Very affordable, safe and clean. Very close to casino's and to Omaha. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are very clean and everything works great. I would recommend this property to anyone. I consider this place a Home away from Home.

I always worry about extended stay hotels that can keep their prices this low; but this one got it right. My room was perfectly clean, everything looked brand new. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very spacious. It was wonderful to have the full size refrigerator and to have a stove. I was able to stay in and cook or bring leftovers back. Helps save money, every bit counts. Will be back when visiting family!

Unfortunately, I have had the pleasure of doing business with this place through my work. We set up an employee here one time and it was a nightmare. They forgot we made reservations, made wrong charges to the wrong credit card, gave dreadful customer service, and were all around difficult to work with. I don't know how this place operates. DO NOT STAY HERE.
