We were here last year for the stae fair and had a pleasurable experience. This year the staff, under new management, has done a complete 360 and does not seem to care about their guests at all. They declined to use a corporate lodging card because the management said, "corporate lodging thinks they rule the world" and they wanted to... More

My family and I stayed at the Boarders in Grand Island during the State Fair. The hotel was very clean, staff was friendly and helpful, and the price was great considering most places are raising their rates really high for the fair.

I stayed here for work and loved it. The employees are super nice. The restaurant on site is a huge plus. The rooms are clean. The only negative thing was hearing the traffic outside. I liked that they had extra pillows and towels in the rooms.

Was so happy to get a room here. The front desk staff was very polite (even after dealing with a rude customer). We arrived late around 1130 pm and was very pleased we were able to get a double queen room. The room was adequate sized with comfy beds and pillows. With all the obvious construction in progress, the main... More

We almost didn't consider this hotel because of the reviews. When I called, I was pleasantly surprised by the great customer service. Gabby was an exceptional hotel desk operator. Since I had a big group and was upgrading from another hotel without a pool, she helped me figure out many other possibilities and gave me the different rates. The pool... More
