Good view of the River and friendly staff!

Easy to check in and out. Clean. Offered a good breakfast. We were in a room next to mechanical room and it was loud overnight.

I arrived at 11:16 p.m. to check in, and the first room I was given had two dogs barking loudly in it* when they heard me moving around. I repacked my things and requested a room change, the second room was fine. *The desk clerk told me the next morning that it was a service dog, but genuine service dogs are trained to not bark like that.

Nice room, but no bath towels, only hand towels. I called the front desk with my room number and asked for two, but none were delivered to my room even by the next morning. Continental breakfast choices were very limited.

It was ok nothing special . A friendly environment

The rooms are very nice, the breakfast was delicious, but the parking is awful, awful, AWFUL! The hotel shares a lot with a neighboring casino and good luck finding somewhere to park. I had to carry a sleeping child across the entire parking lot one night because there is no distinctive hotel parking spots.

Very nice and clean. Good price for hotel next to casinos.

Clean, comfortable & convenient. It was right off the highway & there was a good amount of stuff to do including the casino and restaurants which are attached to the hotel.

Was worried about being next to elevator but was never bothered by the noise. The bathroom could use some new wallpaper and a general over do. Very comfortable beds. Breakfast is at 0700, should start a little earlier for early starters.......

I thought I had booked a suite for my family of 5. But on arrival we were booked in to a very small rooms with two queen beds. I was afraid there wouldn't even be room for our crib, it was so small. I called down to the desk, and the fellow accommodated my family right away. We went into a suite. We needed extra towels, a crib and a fold away bed. The gentleman that brought up the extra items were exceptionally cheerful and prompt. Yes, there were some things lacking. Shower leaked badly and needed grout/seals redone. Although it is near a casino, it is not convenient to to zoo or downtown. Pool was nice and clean, but water very cold. Breakfast was good. They offered waffles, biscuits and gravy, eggs and sausage. Along with healthier fruit/yogurt options. In all, I am HUGE on customer service. So, would I stay again? Yes. All due to customer service.

Love the location. Staff is friendly. The rooms are comfortable.

The Holiday Inn was awesome! A few friends and my husband and I booked rooms here and planned a night at the casino/downtown Omaha. The hotel is attached to Ameristar so we could come and go as we pleased easily, the hotel was also a very quick 10 minute trip to the bars in downtown Omaha. The room was great very modern with a big flat screen tv. There was also a microwave and nice fridge. The front desk staff were very nice and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.
