We left within one hour of checking in because many other tenants were smoking marijuana. The doors open to the outside and people were smoking outside several rooms without any action from hotel managment. The smoke was coming into our room through the vents. Too much for our family. This place is great for pot smokers looking for a room.... More

This was a nice value. It was a little dated, but, it was clean. Could see some basic maintenance that needed taken care of. The breakfast was good. Waffles, cereal,toast, sweet rolls, coffee, juice, milk, etc. The desk clerk was friendly and knowledgable.

This location is very tired looking and in dire need if an update. Really dingy and run down. There are cigarette burns in the bedspreads and carpets despite it being a non-smoking room. Beds & a tv -- that's it. The only "plus" is its proximity to the interstate.

One of the best motels I have stayed in for the reasonable price. Friendly staff, nice size rooms, very accommodating I will stay there every time I am in Lincoln. I travel a lot and generally stay in lower price hotels/motels, this place was far above average.

Upon checking into the hotel, the manager/night man was EXTREMELY friendly. Very easy to talk to. Unfortunately, that's the only thing this place has going for itself. We walked into the room and immediately put all of our items on top of the dresser so as not to touch anything else. As I was pulling the blankets down on one... More

This was by far the most disgusting hotel room ever. Holes in the walls, dirty and really gross. I checked in at 9pm and it was 93 degrees outside. They didn't have the air on, the place stinks, and did I mention dirty?
