“Great stop”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We pulled in here late afternoon. The room was very clean and very nice. We did not get a chance to swim but it has a nice looking swim area. Breakfast was ok. Didn't like the bacon which was all fat. Pricey at $130 a night. Be sure to have the room safe fee taken off your bill at check-out.

Room Tip: If you have kids and want to swim, get a ground floor room with a low number, you will be next to th...

Nice hotel, enjoyed the pool. I am pretty particular about where I stay and this passed the test. Breakfast wasn't my favorite but not horrible. Would have preferred waffles over the pancakes. Very nice service at the desk. Would stay again if in the area.

Felt like i was in prison. Kids under 16 need continuous supervision. Cannot consume any beverages whatsoever in pool area. If you have a family Hilton properties understand you better. Traveling alone for business probably a good quiet hotel for you.

Hi there Leprechan,

We're sorry you felt this way about your stay. Our policies in regard to drinking poolside and supervising children are meant to keep all of our guests happy. If we didn't enforce them, many of our guests would likely complain about the effects.

Additionally, these policies are standard across most competitive hotel brands; they're enforced in most hotels that are similar to ours.

We hope you'll visit us again and give us another chance, Leprechan.

The Hotel looks really good from the outside. Inside it is very clean. Our room was large and included Internet service, coffee maker, microwave, mini refrigerator and large flat screen TV with HD. The beds were very comfortable and included firm or soft pillows. The bathroom was very clean and nice. The shower was very nice. The complimentary buffet breakfast was great. The Hotel included a business center with computers, a fitness center and a large indoor swimming pool. It is convenient to shopping areas and restaurants. We had dinner at a nearby Olive Garden restaurant. I would definitely stay at this Hotel again if I was in the area.

Clean and friendly. Nice pool and workout Room. Reserved 3 rooms and everything went off without a hitch. Laundry facilities were out of order so I wouldn't count on that amenity. Great breakfast and room to sit. Would stay again.

The hotel is very nice, and the breakfast option were exceptional. The room was clean, and very new. The staff, while not unpleasant, did not go out of their way to be nice (the one negative we had). Also, the A/C did not function in our room after about 3 AM, so woke up sweaty.

My wife and I chose this property two years ago mainly because of its location near I-80 in Council Bluffs. Because we were so pleased, we chose to stay here again. Once again, everything in this facility was clean, attractive, comfortable, and in working order. The breakfast area was immaculate and well-stocked including hot entrees both mornings of our stay. My wife was pleased to find a hot water dispenser instead of a thermos which typically yields a coffee taste...disgusting to many tea lovers. The entire staff was friendly and helpful and all details were efficiently dealt with. We've stayed in many Holiday Inn Express properties across the country but have yet to find one better in every way. We'll be back!
