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....

Staff was friendly, pool was nice and warm. They accepted pets, which we appreciated. Grounds were pretty nice - a few cig butts on the parking area, but grass was nice and green. Beds were of average comfort. It looked as if a renovation had perhaps begun, as the carpet looked new and didn't quite match the existing furnishings. The... More

I stayed in Western Inn South about a week ago. Staff was fairly friendly, room was clean, comfortable, and decent size. One of other thing I liked was that it was quiet. Swimming pool, wireless, accessible computer in lobby, microwave/fridge in room, and breakfast in the morning were all excellent perks. I never really travel through Nebraska but would definitely...

I recommend to stay here! The staff was really friendly and they really helped me out. The pool and spa was well maintained and very convenient for me and my family. Great breakfast! I wasn't expecting such a full breakfast, so many options to choose from which was really nice. The place is very clean and quite and really convenient... More

The rooms were filthy dirty. The property should be sited for health code violations. The cable tv didn't work. The walls had footprints on them. Some of our rooms smelled musty. Others smelled mouldy. The towels were so thin it took three to dry off after a shower. The parking lot faces stacks of paletts and idle industrial machinery. Do... More
