Could be better. Yes, it's free for a lot of people, but there's lots of noise in the hallways and due to thin walls and connecting doors, there's also noise there too. Mattresses were old and sunken in. Staff was nice. Valet parking and self parking is easy.

Great stay and play location in the metro Omaha area. $5 to $8 Uber ride into downtown Omaha. Nice hotel, and casino onsite. Adequate amount of table gaming. Highly recommend Harrah's Council Bluffs, IA for any traveler passing through.

We stayed at the hotel which is clean and decorated nicely. The casino is small but does have a nice variety of video and table games. We ate at the restaurant on the 12 th floor the food, service, and view were all spectacular.

Room was clean. Payouts were generous. 360 (restaurant on the top floor of hotel) had awesome dinner. Great wait staff, excellent beef. Stir Cove (bands) books terrific bands, and ticket prices are reasonable.

I have never slept so well in a hotel before. Their beds are so comfortable. I would recommend this hotel for a great nights sleep. Also the pillows weren't just air. I had no normal back pain when getting up in the morning.

Gambling, food, fun all bundle into one area - what's not to love! This was my 2nd time staying here and there will be more! A good time was had by all. Close to other casinos, food, Omaha Zoo, Lauritzen gardens, did I mention casinos?

It was a free stay for us. Room was nice but hair dryer in room only worked on low speed. Ate the $5 Presidents Day buffet which was wonderful. Would stay here again though even if it wasn't a free stay.

Clean casino with clean bathrooms. There is a lot of variety in slot machines and table games. Drink service was very slow and at times took 30 minutes for one drink. Drink prices were high for a casino.

We just got home from a relaxing- fun filled afternoon and evening at Harrah's Council Bluffs. We spent the night in a beautiful room with comfy beds and had wonderful meals at the diner.. This is a place I will definitely recommend for pleasure and or if you need business!!

Great Rooms. Staff is very friendly. Easy access to both casinos. We ate two meals. The evening meal was a sandwich. Which was great. I highly recomend the omelete for your morning meal. Big enough for two to share. Great Place to stay!
