Harrah's Council Bluff has very comfortable, clean lodgings and a casino that offers a variety of games and experiences. The restaurants include a welcoming diner, a well-balanced buffet and a delightful steakhouse with excellent choices for fine dining.

My room was very clean and the beds are awesome! I visit when I need a break from it all. I like the staff. They are always helpful. The buffet was excellent and unfortunately I did not have much luck in the casino I did still enjoy my trip.

Never a bad room, have stayed many times, always clean & comfortable. Front desk staff is always friendly & helpful. Only disappointment is that the buffet & 360 are only open on certain days now. But the 24 hour cafe has great food.

check-in was quick but assigned us to a non-smoking room after we had requested smoking. Check-in staff supervisor was not friendly at all...no greeting whatsoever...felt like I was "bothering him" by trying to check-in. The casino was what I call "tired"...poor play, poor calibration on keno machines, poor beverage service. I wouldn't go back.

Drinks, dinner, a quick snack, great nights sleep, video poker ..whatever you might want...it is all at HARRAH'S Council Bluffs, Iowa. The staff, hotel, restaurants and casino, are all quite polite and accommodating; the rooms nicely appointed and the casino full of a variety of gambling options.

The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and pillows. The casino floor was busy and everyone was having a blast! My group decided to group the gambling money together and enjoy gambling as a group. We had some good luck and not so good luck but all around we all had a great time. We didn't eat to late so...

Be sure to eat at the 360 at Harrahs Council Bluffs. The views of Omaha and the surrounding area are spectacular. During the summer months, concerts in an outdoor arena can be lots of fun. While the gambling is not the best I've seen, the restaurants and the concerts create a nice atmosphere.

We had a lot of fun for it being our first time there and even though we didn't win anything. Employees were very friendly. It took us a little bit to find the casino but after we found it we had so much fun. A lot of different machines to choose from.
