Very Good 8.0 From 589 reviews

Western Inn, Council Bluffs
We stayed 6 nights and really enjoyed it. The kids loved the pool, the breakfast was good, and it was was very quiet where our room was. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The place was a little outdated, with linoleum floor in the bathroom, but it did appear they had done some upgrading, such as paint and fixtures.

Not bad given the price
Hotel staff was extremely nice. Hotel accommodations are worn and dated.

This is an older hotel. The employees were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast selection was good. The hotel was pretty clean except for some mold on the inside of the showe curtain. Bed mattresses probably need to be replaced..

Friendly place to spend the night.
A quiet, friendly hotel very close to I-80. This is our second stay here. We plan to stay here again on our next trip home from Denver. Thank you to the staff.
