We booked this by booking.com. we arrived late and it turned out that all the bathroom doors were so narrow that my husband could not get in with wheelchair. We were going to find a newer place but two big activities has taken up all the hotels. So we worked out a deal where my husband could use the restroom... More

You basically get what you'd expect from a motel. It was clean, but the lighting was very dingy/dull and the fan was missing from the bathroom ceiling. The main problem was the very sad breakfast, which consisted of watery coffee, two types of cereal, toast, and waffles. There was no juice or fruit. The wi-fi did work and the desk... More

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

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.
