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! This motel was exceptional - pleasant, comfortable, and welcoming, we would stop again just to... More

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.

For the price, it's great. A decent place to sleep & shower. The staff was friendly, the room was clean (though ours was a little smallish). McDonald's was right next door (something my 12 yr old thought was very important). We did not try the breakfast because we are not breakfast people, so can't comment on that. And be sure... More

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
