    Clean, comfortable facility at a reasonable rate. Will plan on staying in your hotels more often.

    Why don`t you guys recycle paper, plastic and aluminum?

  • 7.0

    Rooms need updating. Felt old.

  • 7.8

    The beds and pillows were comfortable and the staff was kind and helpful. Breakfast was tasty.

    I wish there was fresh fruit offered at breakfast. My group had two rooms and both of the AC units were not cold enough and made it difficult to sleep. The bathroom in particular could have been cleaner. Probably won't stay here again due to the AC units. We stayed in another hotel in this chain on the eastern side of Iowa recently which was much nicer.

  • 10.0

    Great friendly staff, clean room and Excellent breakfast!

  • 7.8

    Bed was very comfortable

  • 5.8

    Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Not the most modern hotel I've stayed in, but that's only aesthetics. Seemed like a pretty quiet area of Council Bluffs and also in the hotel, which was nice.

    Felt that, because room was booked through 3rd party booking site, front desk staff didn't seem as welcoming when they pulled up my reservation. Apparently the hotel charges a $50 fee as a security deposit at check-in, which I was not made aware of until I checked my bank account a couple days later. Thankfully the charge disappeared from my account a day or two later, but not before I had to call the hotel to ask why. Breakfast options were very limited on Sunday morning. Not sure if it was picked over, but ended up going to a nearby Burger King for breakfast.

  • 8.8

    Busy morning with a lot of people trying to eat. Out of juice, out of fruit. No bowls. I understand though.

  • 9.2

    Breakfast was good and the pool area was clean.

  • 6.6

    Front desk was great

    We were very disappointed when we arrived in our room only to find a used feminine product between the mattresses. We were very disgusted. I promptly spoke to the front desk. No manager on staff. The front desk worker was wonderful. we expected a room comp, we got 50 off our stay. We will not use Country Inn by Carlton again. That was so unsanitary and due to the time of our trip no other vacancies were available or we would have left. Very disappointing

  • 5.8

    Lobby very comfortable!

    Black mold growing in the window sills Room smelt very musty! Drain pipe under bathroom sink leaking on floor.

  • 6.6

    Location, refrigerator, breakfast clean, comfortable

    Too expensive for a standard queen room

  • 9.6

    Beds were nice. Breakfast was good. Morning staff were friendly! Enjoyed the cookies/coffee at night!

  • 2.4

    The custodian was very kind. He greeted us each time he saw us in the hallway and held the elevator for us a few times.

    They allowed non-guests to bring in cases of alcohol in the pool area where several young children were swimming. When I reported it to the desk, the person laughed and said, "What do you want me to do about it. We are independently owned, and I don't think they are breaking our rules."

  • 7.0

    I book to rooms when we got there they only had one room I was there about 1hour getting another room then that room the air conditioning didn't work properly never got fixed the two days we were there

  • 9.6

    Value for my money. Location.

    Breakfast was good. Not great. By the time I ate, most of the hot foods were tough.
