We stayed here on a trip southward for a one night quick stay. Our room was quite large and clean. The room had the beds on one side then a short hall and bathroom, then a front living room area. Both areas had nice TVs. The living room area also had a desk, couch and chair. The room was nice... More

We were in town for the Rotary Land of Lincoln President elect training which was held at the convention center. The Holiday Inn is attached. Since last year this hotel has been completely redone. The lobby is contemporary and very inviting. The staff upon check in were very friendly and helpful. We were on the 4th floor so we didn't... More

Stayed here using IHG's special 5,000 point deal while en route to St. Louis. The hotel is nice enough, and we really only used it for a stopover, so did not take the time to try any of the amenities. Room was fine, although bed was nothing special. A real grip i have was the frat party that began in... More

It was my first time at this newly refurbished hotel and I would definitely stay there again. The lobby and rooms were all new and with plenty of close dining options. There was a full bar and mini restaurant but I did not try either one. The only issue was the lack of parking on the front side of the... More

I stayed here for 3 days on a business trip. The service was great and rooms were very clean. However, they were doing construction on the hotel and had tons of tools and ect all over the hallways when we were trying to get to our room. There was no continental breakfast and prices were high. :( Beds were amazing... More

We needed a place to stop for the night, and this is what we chose. No complaints. Would stay again if in the area. Breakfast was decent. Bed was comfy...lots of pillows, which we love. This was a newer hotel, and I'd recommend it to others.

The hotel is under renovation. If you are there during business hours you will encounter a lot of construction activities which can be a little inconvenient but the workers are nice and help you negotiate the hallway. Don't be afraid of the place just because of the renovations. Lobby was nice; the Garden Inn layout but plenty of room. Restaurant... More
