we have stayed here 1 other time and it was a great experience so why fix what isn't broken--we stayed again this past weekend and it was awesome again--manager was very helpful and informative. We had a smoking room and when we opened the door there was no stale smell and room was very clean--we stayed at of the top... More

The room was nasty. I can tell there have been efforts to redecorate- but that is all wasted if management doesn't follow up on housekeeping to make sure rooms are clean. There were brown smears on the fridge. The toilet bowl was full of grime and looked liked it hadn't been scrubbed in weeks. The tub drain was clogged. And... More

Stayed here for the longest week of my life for work. If I had my way, I would have checked out after one night, but company politics prevented that. The website said freshly renovated--that translates to fresh paint, new carpet, new paintings, flat screen TVs, and new (but already curiously stained) bedspreads. Breakfast is available and average. The desk is... More

The hotel looked renovated but it was so poorly and half done. The room door handles were dusty, bed not made up nicely, dust on... More

I will not be staying here again! This was a huge disappointment because I have stayed at other AmericInn's and have never experienced this poor quality. The hallway stunk like stale smoke. It looks old and needs updating. The room was unclean, the bed looked like it was thrown together, and ants in the bathroom. Not what I expected from... More

can't say a bad thing about the whole experience. Recommend it highly. Room was clean ,quiet, easily accessible. Staff was very helpful. We visit the area 2-3 times a year for days at a time and will be staying here.

This is an older AmericInn, but seems to be recently partially renovated. Maria (I think that was her name) at the front desk was extremely friendly and made you feel at home... She was a breath of fresh air after driving for hours. The room was clean, with a good sized mini fridge, microwave, flat-screen TV. The bed was comfy.... More

We stayed here for a soccer tournament but checked out after just one night. The rooms were musty smelling, the bathroom had mold, and the milk was out of date in the breakfast. We were happy to pay $30 more to stay at a different hotel in downtown Omaha. The staff was very friendly and check in was quick. WiFi... More

Easy to locate, right off of I-80. Clean motel with secure rooms, friendly staff and great biscuits and gravy. Quiet and comfortable. I will be back to this motel chain when traveling. I have stayed at Council Bluffs and Boone, Iowa motels.
