“Springhill Suites - Excellent value”
Reviewed July 5, 2009

We stayed at Springhill Suites over spring break with several family members. The hotel is new, very clean, and the rooms were fabulous - especially for the price. The "mini-suites" had a sitting area separate from the bedroom but they shared a flatscreen TV that swiveled between the two. There was also a small "kitchen" area with sink, microwave and refrigerator. The beds were very comfortable and the furnishings were better than I expected. It is also within walking distance of the Bass Pro Shop (and restaurant) and Famous Daves. Both restaurants were excellent. The only down sides were that the pool was kind of small and so the pool room was very hot. Also, the setup for the continental breakfast was not ideal, resulting in very long lines in the morning. The food wasn't really worth standing in a long line for. Would definitly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Springhill Suites for two nights in Council Bluffs, IA in April of 2009. Though not as nice as the Springhill in Oklahoma City, OK (see posted review in January of 2009) we enjoyed our stay here. The staff is friendly. The pool area is adequate size and has a hot tub. The pool depth goes from 3ft – 5ft. The room was great with a flat screen TV with a bracket that allowed it to swivel so that we could watch it while sitting in the lounge area or in bed. The couch in the lounge area folded out allowing us to comfortably sleep 2 adults and 4 kids in our room with two queens and a fold out. The interior was very modern and colorful. Complimentary USA Today was a nice touch as well. The continental breakfast was pretty well stocked with eggs and sausage. The eggs were a little runny but otherwise it was good. Waffle makers, cereal, etc. were all there. The Wi-Fi in the rooms worked well. Very fast. The little kitchennette area in the room was nice with a fridge and cupboards. I would not hesitate to stay here again if in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. It was much nicer than the Settle Inn. It was located within walking distance to a few casinos and the Mid-America Center.

We thorougly enjoyed our stay at the Springhill Suites. Breakfast was good (nice selection hot and cold items). Coffee was great. The suite set up was great for us. No smoking anywhere in the hotel - huge bonus. We made good use of the indoor pool and spa. Location maybe leaves a little to be desired (close to some dated casinos) depending on what you're there for. There is alsoa brand new Bass Pro across the parking lot.

We were in Omaha for a basketball tournament and our team stayed at Springhill. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from the time we arrived until the time we checked out. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms clean and spacious, the equipment in the exercise room was great, kids enjoyed the pool while parents enjoyed visiting in the lobby sitting area. The Market was also a nice extra where the kids could get munchies. The breakfast was nice as well, and we were even provided a hospitality room during our stay!

This hotel is located within walking distance of the Horseshoe Casino, so that's why we chose this property. Once I walked into the lobby, it took 2-3 minutes before a front desk clerk appeared so help me check in. The lobby was clean, and inviting as well as the hallways and elevators were kept up and clean, too. There is a small workout center and an indoor pool available as well. The continental breakfast was just like any other---fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, coffee, juice, cereal, oatmeal, fruit cups, etc).

Regarding the room itself---WONDERFUL!!! The flat screen tv's had my husband in awe! You could either turn it to the left so a person can watch it while in the 'living room' or swing it to the right to watch it while in bed. The king bed had many pillows on it and the sheet were crisp & clean. The lighting in the bedroom was on a dimmer switch, which was very nice, since we have the same things at home, so it made us feel 'at home'. :)

The little 'kitcheny' area with the microwave, fridge and coffee maker looked brand new with the lighting and countertops (they had dark cherry-wood colored cabinets and black countertops that were very up-to-date) but the couch and chair were not as modern looking and uncomfortable to set on.

The bathroom was clean with ample supplies (toilet paper, towels, lotion, shampoo and conditioner) and I was impressed that the shower was so large with a full glass door and corner seat inside of the shower itself. Very fancy looking, if you ask me!

The parking lot was large and very well lit. Didn't have a hard time finding a place to park at any time. By the front desk there was a mini-grocery store with drinks and snacks for purchase. Check out was fast and convenient with a very helpful clerk. We will surely be back to this property when in Council Bluffs again!

Wife and I were looking for a nice hotel, room with jacuzzi, but couldn't travel too far from home. Hotel is really nice, good service. Room (king suite with jacuzzi) was spacious, with kitchenette (microwave, fridge), 32-inch flatscreen TV on the wall, fold-out sofa bed, chair, and desk in the living room area. Bedroom area had an incredibly comfortable king bed, two-person jacuzzi, plenty of storage space, alarm clock-radio with built in iPod docking, 42-inch flatscreen TV (wall mounted). Bathroom area has two sinks outside the bathroom, and the shower is very large (easily allows two to use it) with a seat.
Internet is wi-fi or cat-5, free, and very good speed throughout the hotel.
Rate includes breakfast buffet, which are the usual cereral, yoghurt, toast, muffins, coffee/tea, scrambled eggs, sausage, and self-made waffles. Free morning papers (USAToday, WSJ, Omaha World-Herald).
Hotel has an exercise room with several cardio machines, swimming pool and public jacuzzi.
Location is just off I-80 or I-29. The MidAmerica Center (convention center) is literally within walking distance, as is a Bass ProShop store which includes a really nice seafood restaurant. Very short distance away are several other restaurants, including a Ruby Tuesday, Applebee, Binion's Steakhouse.
