Overall this hotel was a good value if you're looking for a decent place to spend the night with no frills. I had a single queen room which was pretty small but plenty of room for one. The room was clean and though the hotel is older, it has been updated. Breakfast was "meh"...but pretty typical hotel fare- a few... More

At this price, I consider this to be a gem. Our room was perfectly clean and odor-free. The bed and bedding were comfortable and we slept well. The staff was very professional and helpful. WIFI worked great. Our room was quiet. Breakfast not too exciting but better than most in this price-range. I will definitely stay here again. I could... More

Our room was clean and the staff were overly friendly. The location is perfect as its close to just about everything. There is a gas station and McDonald's in walking distance. The continental breakfast did not offer a lot but was one of the better ones I've had. If I ever return to Kearney this is where I'll stay.

I was there last week passing through, my mistake as it was crane migration time. I was dead tired after driving 11 hours, I tried several hotels and was told this one had a few rooms left. For what I paid with my discounts was way to high for what I received. The room was clean and nice looking, I... More

Every member of the staff that I encountered was friendly and helpful - real small-town folks there to welcome visitors. We stayed there during the crane migration so the town was filled with tourists. The hotel itself was just ok. The walls were thin. The heater in the room was very loud - we actually shut it off at night... More

My friend and I stayed at the Econo Lodge last Friday (Feb 21). Normally I like to stay at places like the Wingate or Holiday Inn but there was a high school sports event and all those places were well over $100 a night. Got a rate of $73. What a discovery - this hotel was spotlessly clean, the staff... More

If you are traveling on I-80 through Nebraska and are around exit 272 and thinking about stopping for the night do not dismiss the Econo Lodge on south 2nd as being of lower quality. You will be wrong. The room is clean and fresh. The young lady at the desk was professional, friendly, and helpful. Her smile was certainly welcomed... More

Your review is most welcome. You address a common assumption about the cleanliness of economy hotels. Also, when you offer a great product it's easier for the people at the front desk to be friendly and welcoming. This, in a way is a great tip no matter where you are traveling to. Thank you for sharing your observations for others... More

We usually stay with Marriott, but decided to try this place since the rate was about half what we would have spent elsewhere. We gave up a pool and exercise room but not much else. The staff were kind and helpful and allowed us to look at rooms first to see how big they were. For $5 more, we chose... More
