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

Jason on the contrary we definitely appreciate all of our Corporate Lodging customers however, we were unaware when you made your reservation in September of 2013 that you belonged to Corporate Lodging. We had no notice of the service animal until we found the dog unattended in the room by our housekeeping. We are a pet friendly hotel and love... 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.
