Very quiet property, great front desk staff. Bedroom was clean and confortable. Couldn't ask for anything else after driving for 10h. Breakfast was ok. Free wi-fi. Microwave and fridge in the bedroom. Not many food choices on a walking distance.

This is NOT on the interstate & NOT connected to Ameristar Casino. Thanks to the front desk for drive directions. Latasha @ the front desk recommended an excellent place for our Valentine's celebration supper. Both gals @ the front desk were friendly & helpful. The rooms were clean & comfy beds. The breakfast buffet was good with many choices including... More

New Holiday Inn Express. Clean comfortable rooms, nice shower, soft water. Breakfast was easy, and they had plenty of food. No problems with this visit, across the street from an AMC and the Mid America Center. Would stay here again. Price was good as well.

Read good reviews and thought this would be a good hotel for a quick anniversary getaway in Omaha. The back parking lot and the third floor of this hotel turned into a party after a concert, including the rooms around us, until the early morning hours even after two calls to the front desk. Talked to the front desk in... More

We recently stayed at this Holiday Inn. We were to fly out the next morning for our warm destination vacation. The room was very comfortable and the hotel is adjacent to the Ameristar Casino/Hotel. We ate supper at the Ameristar and came back to a great nights sleep. In the morning there was coffee and also they gave us bottled... More

I stayed here twice and enjoyed my stay. there are many places nearby to eat and even a casino if that's your thing. It's also just across the bridge fro downtown Omaha. Clean rooms and comfy beds. I would stay there again.

I booked this hotel online and when I arrived the young lady at the front desk, Khadesha, had everything ready...paperwork, key cards, everything. I was on my way to the room in about two minutes. She was not just efficient though, she was friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and very comfortable, nice breakfast too. The manager was also... More

Herr on business and my group stayed in 3 rooms. No one had any issues and the hotel rooms were clean and spacious. We had no problems that some of the other reviewers had.

I usually stay at Hampton Inns, but the last one, featuring personnel with attitude, let me down, so I decided to try a Holiday Inn, especially since their web site claimed “four restaurants on the premises”. I knew I’d be arriving late and won’t have any time to go look for food. It turns out they are adjacent to a... More

Our room was very clean with a nice bathroom which was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets clean and in good condition. The lobby was clean as were the elevators. The pool was well maintained. The staff was courteous and friendly. The hotel has plenty of parking. The grounds of the hotel are well kept.
