I booked through hotels.com while traveling from Wisconsin to Colorado, price was cheap but just wanted to sleep. Hotel was quiet with a large TV and very comfortable bed. Room was clean with no unusual smells. Continental breakfast started early in the morning, but there was a Perkins right next door so we ate there. Great deal for the price.

We recently stayed one night at the Howard Johnson in Kearney, NE. Our heater made a very loud squealing noise, there were pieces of black hair on our bathroom sink and the pillows were very uncomfortable. We do NOT plan on staying there again!

My family and I were traveling through Nebraska and decided to stay here in Kearney. I was greeted with a warm smile and the staff was very friendly. No doubt, the kids were excited about the pool ans hot tub. The beds were super-b and very comfy. Excellent stay. There was a wide variety of food for breakfast. Waffles was... More

Check-in was a joke! The woman was not friendly. Never even said "hello". Just looked at me until I said we had a reservation. Never gave directions to the room. Room was clean, and heater was cranked on high running full blast. No one answered the phone when we called the front desk, so the issue could not be addressed... More

This was an older motel that needs a lot of updates. BUT it would have been passable if it had been cleaner. Crumbs around the bed and furniture, dirty light switches and sweat marks on the walls of the bathroom. All could have been taken care of with better cleaning staff. The windows were also very dirty and needed to... More

Motels are a place to sleep when out of town. So, if the room is clean and has basic amenities, it's fine by me. This one fit all my needs except there was no recliner. I have gotten used to finding them in motel rooms and a recliner is my preferred place to sleep as the majority of motel beds... More

On my way to Denver and stopped in Kearney for a sleep stop. Room was mostly clean. Shower had long hair in it. Bed was comfortable, but sheets kind of made me itch.
