We stayed at the Briarwood on an ATV adventure in July. This was our third stay at Briarwood over the last 10 years. There have been gradual improvements over the years like replacing the wall AC units with mini split heat pumps. The motel had always been a clean and decent place to stay but more good things are in... More

In town for work for 3-5 months. The hotel was nice enough, but old and kind of worn, as you would expect from a small town. Sue was great, and saw to all our needs. The TV's were old, the showers kind of small, but the beds were comfortable enough. Not bad, considering, but not one of the better hotels... More

the woman who answered the phone was rude!! I was nothing but nice to her. It's too bad because after reading the other reviews, it seems to me she's going to be the reason no one will go there anymore. People want a positive environment to stay at, not a negative, rude, toxic one that this woman gives. No thanks.

I am a native of Lincoln and returned to my hometown for my 35th class reunion and the annual Homecoming celebration in July. I stayed for two nights (Friday and Saturday) with plans to depart on Sunday morning. Although I was overall pleased with the room, I was a little dismayed with the manager upon my departure. I ran a... More

My boyfriend was in Lincoln on business and I flew in to meet him after he had already been there for a week. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and the manager/owner should not be in the hospitality business! When I went to the front desk to ask for housekeeping services after being there for 2 days I was told in... More

My first impression of room wasn't bad but cost for room way too high. We picked this motor inn because they said they were dog friendly and on website their wasn't an extra fee for dogs. We got our credit card bill today and their was an extra charge for bringing our dog..... $100.00. I can understand if their was... More

I would say this was your average economy motel at best. I'd stay there in a bind but there is a much better choice in Lincoln. The rooms obviously haven't been updated in a long time. The beds are okay but nothing I would buy.

We had to stay in Lincoln for medical appointments. We were taken back by the looks of the room, shag rug, brown/orange decor, tattered shades and no hair dryer. All this for the price of a room that would get you so much more. We had little choice and had it not been winter, I think my spouse would have... More

We stayed here recently and it is what you'd expect. It's an older motel(as most motels are) but is was clean and suited our needs very well. I thought the price was fair for a weekend. Manager was very helpful and friendly, she put us upstairs as it might be quieter and had a view of our parked snowmobile trailer.... More
