My husband and two sons stayed here for the Huskerland wrestling tournament in March 2014. The *only* reason I booked this place was the price: Expedia quoted it as $55 a night. I booked it for 3 people, one night. They ended up bringing along one friend, for a total of 4 people. When they checked in, the manager said... More

I've stayed at the Western before in the past and it was fine for the money. This last time was BAD. They charged the dog fee of $15. whether or not the animal came to the room. The room was dirty. Mold in the shower corners, dust bunnies hanging off the acoustic ceiling, the coffee pot was dirty inside where... More

I was content with our short, one-night stay and the breakfast was comparable good for the reasonable price. We stay at hotels such as Super8, Rodeway Inn, and Econolodge. We checked in after midnight so I did not mention our dog since it was cool enough for him to remain in the car. At our 8 a.m. check-out, the manager... More

No hot tub. Ice cold pool more suited for ice fishing. My wife and mother in law were threatened and had to fight to get refunded our money after discovering about the pool and hot tub. Don't stay here. If you continue onto Lexington the Holiday Inn Express is nice and staff is great.

Cheap. Owners not welcoming. Pool "closed for maintenance" but appeared to simply be closed seemingly to save money. Hottub empty. Breakfast beyond scrimpy. Towels rough. Poor lighting in parking area. Breakfast area had seating for 4 people only. Owners unfamiliar with area. Soda machine empty. On and on....
