When we entered the Holiday Inn Express in Council Bluffs, we were greeted by a cloud of cigarette smoke. The manager had placed an ashtray and a bench just west of the main entrance. When smokers went outside, to escape the non-smoking interior of the hotel, they ended up right next to the main entrance, where the prevailing breezes could...

Bad location. Made more uncomfortable by group of scary looking men sitting in front of the main entrance smoking and drinking (I saw beer). When asked the man at the desk said most of his customers are business men. If these guys were business men I’d be shocked. Maybe construction/road crew. The man at the desk in no way had...

Awesome staff, had an issue in room that was taken care of right away. This is where we will stay if we are in this area again!! Had a bigger room with 3 girls with us and it was great. Made our visit to the zoo enjoyable and is close. Road construction near by made travel interesting but not impossible....

Booked a room and nowhere online did it mention the words non-refundable. Had a change of plans so I went online and canceled the room that same day. The system gave me a cancellation number so I thought everything was fine. Checked my credit card statement a couple weeks later and noticed I was still charged for the room so...

We came off of a long day of traveling from Minnesota and were happy with the accommodations and the ability to relax at the the Holiday Inn Express in Council Bluffs. We had originally planned on staying in Omaha, but the town was packed with people attending the Olympic swim trials. Council Bluffs was busy too with a concert nearby...

Went there with my boys to see the College World Series. We booked last minute so everything around downtown was either too expensive or simply booked. This was only a few miles SW of the city and very easy to get to (less than 10 minutes drive from the stadium). The place isn't the most modern but it works. Hot...

3 night stay for a work conference. Clean, well stocked room. Responsive staff. Breakfast was a little weak. Didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. The hotel was full, but it wasn't noisy. Free wifi, which is always appreciated when traveling. I'd definitely stay here again.

I've stayed in a lot of different HIE's and this one is very typical. On the plus side, the room was what you would expect from HIE and was very clean. My only real complaint with the room was that they only gave us 3 bath towels for a 4 person room. On the downside, this room was more expensive...

This property is really easy to find, and is in a good location for visiting the major Omaha attractions. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breaksfast was good as usual. We will definitely stay at the property again on future visits.

I recently spent a week at this HEI while on a business trip, the staff was very friendly and the hot breakfast starting at 6:00 am. was a great way to start the day.The hotel was quiet and very clean and I would stay here again if in the area.
