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

Decent hotel, but the room price was higher than necessary, and quite a bit higher than some of the other choices in town. The bed was very uncomfortable, hard and not up to a level expected of this price range. Shower was outdated. Breakfast was good. Rooms were a bit on the small side, and the customer service was only... More
