It's difficult to be critical of a facility when they treat you like family, but sadly, I wouldn't go back here. It's an older facility and the rooms are just... tired. The bathrooms seemed to be cleaned as best they could be; but the tile grout and caulk were old and icky and desperatly needed to be redone.

This hotel was perfect in terms of location, cost, amenities. I liked the little lapdesk in the room as well as the flat screen TV, microwave and fridge. There was plenty of light for reading. The office staff was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was a notch above average - included yogurt, waffles and biscuits/gravy. The downsides were a very... More

We stayed at this location one night while driving through on vacation. The front desk staff was very friendly (her name is Rose), and they gave us a welcome bag with water and some cookies. I thought that was a nice, personal touch. The room was clean, and the bed was comfy. We would have slept great if we had... More

This is a middle-aged, basic, two story property. Adequate for a one night stop over. The Good: Good freeway access. Ground floor rooms have parking at the door. Rooms have been updated with newer carpeting and furniture. Toilet and shower in separate room from vanity. Shaded picnic area. Decent breakfast. Cleanliness and repair seemed OK. Reasonable rates. The Bad: In... More

We booked at this hotel with a little hesitation, we saw the last review and didn't know what to think. We finally decided to give it a try. 1) My wife called the hotel directly as she most often does, was greeted professionally. The attendant was nice to even sign us up for Choice Privileges. 2) We arrived at the... More

We called ahead and were told that the room was recently remodeled. Instead, our room's AC/Heater was partly detached from the wall, wallpaper was coming off, screws were sticking out the wall, we were charged twice for our one room and we were not given a key because the attendant did not know how to program it. A true disaster!... More

We had stayed at this hotel in the past a year or so ago, we thought we would give it another try since we were in town to watch our grandson play basketball. The rooms have always been clean and this time was no exception, they did add new televisions and new mattresses since the last time we stayed. The... More

This motel is getting a low rating on price since we were there on Labor Day weekend for Neb. football. I happened to get lucky to find this room. There was a little area for continental breakfast. The staff was very friendly. This is a step up from Motel 6 or 8. Has laundry.

This motel isn't fancy, but it's not a dump. It is a reasonable hotel for game day in Lincoln. The price is inflated, but it's not over the top. The room was clean & everything worked. It was only a $8 cab ride to downtown, which was more than reasonable in a city.
