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! 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
