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

Even though we don't treat our rooms with pesticides after each guest with pets stays in a room, our rooms are inspected and treated regularly by Ecolab. In fact, Ecolab was there on the day you arrived and had performed their routine inspection and treatment, incuding... 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

Nice clean newly re-furbished room. Manager instantly fixed a problem with the coffee maker. Recommended stay. New air conditioner was quieter than most. Parking was close to the room. Several restaurants nearby. Location is just a few blocks from the interstate but road noise was not a problem.

Thank you for letting me fix the situation with the coffee maker. We really do appreciate accommodating our guests and providing them with not only a great experience, but also a great value. I think this is the first time that a guest has shared their experience when we were able to correct a situation. Thanks for staying with us.... More
