We stayed here on our business trip to Columbus. The front desk staff was very friendly. My room was clean and spacious. It appeared that the carpet was new. The fitness center was good as was the complimentary breakfast. The only negative is that it was hard to get into hotel as there was no entrance from the main highway... More

We had a wonderfully spacious suite at this clean, fresh, well-maintained property. Two adults and two children and we rented a crib; plenty of space for all of us plus visitors to the room. The staff was friendly and courteous, and when they learned we were in town for a funeral they were respectful and appropriate. The free breakfast buffet... More

Very clean lobby and breakfast area. Excellent customer service at check in and out. Very clean rooms. Pool area was also nice and neat. EXCELLENT breakfast! There wasn't any tables left when we went to eat though. Pretty crowded but that just backs up the fact that the food was great! Wonderful staff! Highly recommended! We will be back!

Not a lot of hotels in small Columbus, NE, which is probably why the property is getting a little long in the tooth. Very friendly and helpful staff, and the hotel serves a very nice happy hour with free beer and snacks. Room is a tad bit worn and the beds and furniture could use an upgrade. Great breakfast.

We stayed 5 nights, with 3 young kids. The room was large and clean, the staff was particularly helpful and kind. We had some nice conversations. They have a small selection of movies which was unexpected and a great joy to my kids, and mid-afternoon snacks. There are moderately healthy options for breakfast, they had Greek yogurt a couple days... More
