This was the second time I've stayed in this hotel. (The first time was in 8/12) As was true before, the hotel was very clean, with NO smoke odor, or perfume to cover up odors. The breakfast area was clean and tidy, the continental breakfast very fresh. The staff was friendly and helpful. Budget hotels CAN be well-maintained, clean and... More

We stayed in this hotel with our 2 dogs for a weekend. Comfortable rooms and surprisingly quiet. There is a small deposit for pets, but worth it. The location is very central to anything one might wish to see. Good value for our stay. Highly recommend!

The night staff was very polite and helpful. Beds and pillows were comfortable. The room clean. Wifi worked as it should. Towels were slightly bigger than a postage stamp; the tub backed up a little; and the walls are thin. The breakfast was better than average offering boiled eggs, milk in individual cartons and sugar free syrup for the waffles.... More

I am not a picky person when it comes to hotels. I just want a good nights sleep. We arrived at 1am on our journey from CO to IA ready to get some sleep and be on our way in the morning. It started out with a nice lady checking us in and although it took forever she was friendly... More

I am very sorry to hear that you did not get any rest while you were staying with us at the EconoLodge of Kearney. While some people find being so close to a 24 hour restaurant a convenience, it does have its downfalls with the constant traffic. I hope if you are in the area again, you will allow us... More

When we walked in, I noticed 4 awards for this hotel from the past 4 years, hanging on the wall behind the desk. I am not surprised now, after staying with them. Because of my husband's business travels, we stay at Choice hotels. When had just come from a very disappointing 4-day stay in South Dakota. This hotel erased all... More

Nice quiet hotel and the beds were very comfortable. The carpet was very dirty, but the rest of the room was clean. The front desk clerk was very new and was very confused with the customer ahead of me in line and also with my reservation, so check in took longer than usual and required a second trip down to...

Quiet and comfortable hotel. I had bad experiences with Econo lodges in the past but not this one. Wonderful restaurant just down the street, wood fire cooked. Staff at the hotel was absolutely wonderful and helpful. Clean and comfortable hotel and at a great price. Breakfast to start the day off.

On a road trip we needed a place to stay for the night. We were aiming to go a bit farther but read the reviews for this location and decided to stop in Kearney in order to stay here specifically, and so glad we did!

The lodge was clean and offered all the essential services. TripAdvisor charged us almost $20 more than what the hotel would have charged us. We actually have a bill from the hotel, which shows the shows the proper charge. Do not use TripAdvisor! Peter Lohaus

Stayed one night on a family vacation. Nothing fancy, but very clean! Quiet, as well. Breakfast was good for the price point, and even had hard boiled eggs and waffles, though selection of breads and cereals was limited. We recommend this hotel and would stay again.
