We made our reservation online and did not realize that the hotel was attached to a casino. Our room was great with the staff being very kind and helpful. As it was late when we arrived, we ate our dinner at Bella's, a restaurant in the plaza of the casino. The food and service was wonderful with a delightful decor....

This Holiday Inn was more like a very nice Holiday Inn Express. They had a very good complimentary breakfast. The fitness room was very good---2 high quality Cybex treadmills, 2 Cybex ARCTrainers, 1 bike, and free weights. One of the treadmills did not work, and there were no towels to wipe down the equipment after use. Our King room and...

I've stayed at a half dozen hotels in Council Bluffs, and enjoyed almost all, but not this one. It has the sorriest rooms. I spent over $300 for one night on the Berkshire weekend. I found cracks jn the lavatory basin, black fungus outside the shower and inside as well, and blistering wood near the whirlpool. See my photos. To...

The room was quiet and as warm as I wanted it. Clean and a hot tub in the room as well. No problems or issues. Friendly staff. I loved the hot tub and almost fell asleep there. Big enough for 4 people and comfortable.

I've stayed here once before. The people are fun and get things done fast. The room was fine, I ate at the near by casino. The price was fine for more food than I could eat. The hotel suffers from too many people moving through it for too long. One of the elevators was not working. I heard some one...

We stayed here last weekend for a quick getaway and had a blast. The remodeled rooms are very nice. Love the lighted bathroom mirrors and nice clean showers. The beds were comfy also. We spent a lot of time in the pool. I like that it's a pretty large pool. Very friendly staff and great stay. We will be back!

I like the IHG properties so tend to prefer them. This HI was definitely at the top of the list for quality and cleanliness. Staff was friendly and nothing was missed. Airport shuttle was quick and easy. The room was large, sparkling clean and, having a sofa, a very nice place to kick back and simply relax. The bathroom was...
