Passing through omaha on our way home stopped here. Looked decent from outside. I feel like they are trying to make this hotel better but they have work to do. After we parked we noticed several people walking around drinking and smoking in the parking lot. One guy with lots of tattoos sitting on a bench next to hotel was... More

Perfect location with access to everything. The rooms were spotless (perhaps the cleanest motel I've ever stayed in). Everything looked new. Indoor pool area was awesome. As a business owner, I truly appreciate good personel, so I will never forget the friendly staff...Chantel, Amanda, Mke, etc helped make our stay a perfect one (thank you). FIVE STAR rating in my...

Stayed there for one night and were surprised to get a different price at the front desk than the internet showed us. When asked about that was the answer they can't do about that but know it. So I left, booked via cellphone and had a cheaper price. Room was very clean but missed a fridge. Had 2 windows and... More

Formerly the Settle Inn, this hotel is right by the interstate and looks like a cross between a lighthouse and a castle on the outside. The lobby is dark, with a seating area and fireplace that looks somewhere between "vintage" and "dated" and you can tell by the smell where the smoking rooms are... or were? It's an old smoke...

I had made a reservation well in advance. Was checked in by a rude night clerk. Room was not per request. The room AC didn't work well, toilet seat was broken, seal around faucet was coming loose, and the noise level was bad. I had to go out and buy a fan to run for both the needed coolness and... More

I could not get the hotel room temperature to cool off, as I like a chilly room to sleep in. My cat, who is a great traveler was terrified the whole night. Not a place I will stay again even though pets can stay free. I would rather pay for more comfort and a pet fee than stay in substandard... More

Meredith, I am sorry your stay did not meet expectations. We are a pet friendly hotel that does not charge for pets to stay, admittedly we have considerably more dog than cats that stay at the hotel. I don't know if that was part of the reason for your cat's discomfort but for that I apologize. We would have been... More

We stayed at the Red Roof for a wedding. The staff was very helpful in getting our many needs met. We were able to use the breakfast room for an evening get together. Breakfast was very well handled, food was good. Sunday breakfast was wonderful, omelets with a side of bacon, best we had eaten in a hotel. We had... More

The room was ok. But I knew this wasn't a five star hotel. We had a refrigerator. Fabulous! The Bathroom was clean. Fabulous! Red Lobster restaurant around the corner--Fabulous! The clientele in the Walmart was scary. Go in daylight! Haha.

The rooms were clean and they are per friendly, but compared to the Sioux Falls location I wasn't impressed. There wasn't any place to really take my dog out to go except the parking lot. Was also disappointed the room did not have a fridge and microwave
