Have been a few times with friends when traveling for work. Clean (love the buffet downstairs and also 360 upstairs) Bartenders in the casino are great and friendly. I personally wish there was no smoking allowed but that's about it.

Smaller casino and Harrah's has free bus service to the Horseshoe Casino. The employees are very friendly ,from your check-in to checking out. Nice to have a choice of eating at either casino at a small restaurant or fine dining. Food is tasty at either location.

I actually look forward to visiting Harrah's in Council Bluffs. We often have a lunch at the Market and then visit the casino for that chance to get lucky. Dinner in the 360 is always excellent and is our choice to celebrate special occasions.

We come to Council Bluffs from Lincoln quite often. This time we had a room on the first floor. The room was ok but not as nice as the room we had on the third floor when we brought our pet. We had a west view of downtown Omaha which was great at night with all the lights. I have...

Small gaming floor, but very nice friendly staff. No poker room and limited slots. Also had only one craps table open on a Saturday night. The hotel was very nice and again the staff was fantastic! The sports bar is good too.
