Went to Lincoln, NE for football game on October 25. Didn't want to spend an arm and a leg in downtown Lincoln, so opted for Econo Lodge just outside town. It was an excellent value for the money. It had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker. They offered free Wi-Fi. The shower was new, bed very comfortable. It had older furniture... More

Normally for the same price I stay in a dive up the street...but for a change I decided to stay here. I will definitely be returning. The owner was nice, the rooms were in great shape and very clean. It was quiet and very comfortable.

We often stay Choice Hotels and receive frequent stay points, so we are very familiar with the standards and price/quality level of these hotels. The EconoLodge Lincoln accepts dogs for a fee of only $10/night, which is great. Also, the front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. However, the rooms to the hotel open to the outdoors, and our... More

I did not like this Econo Lodge. The location is ok, but the buildlings are old and in need of repair. The hallway carpets are dirty and smelly. My room was good size, but not well cleaned. I won't go into the gross details. The sink was extremely slow to drain. (Half full when I washed my hands.) The bed... More

The large room looked friendly and had everything one could ask for. The bath was small and like the room very clean. We liked the step-in-shower but the toilette was extremely low – not good for older people. One chair was broken but as there were 3 in the room it didn’t matter. The mattress was soft but comfortable and... More

We had to stay here since there were some big events in town and most hotels were booked up. It looked promising from the outside, but is was horrible once we got past the lobby. Hall carpets were stained, the whole place stunk of smoke which almost covered up the dank odor. Our group had several rooms upstairs in non-smoking,... More

DON'T STAY HERE!!! The only reason I gave this one star is because I can't give it a lower rating. Anyone claiming that this hotel was anything but terrible must be getting paid by them. We stopped for the night on our way to Utah, it was about 10 outside and there was virtually no heat in the room. We... More

We were just looking for some place to stay that was cheap and clean with comfortable beds. And this place fit the bill. We only planned on being in the room to sleep. For the $39.99 we paid, it was an excellent buy. The staff was friendly. Breadkfast is disappointing (donuts, ceral, toast and bagels), but for the price I... More

After one night of staying there, I woke up to find 10-15 large red welts on my arms and face. I'm 100% positive that it was bed bugs because I found one of them in my bed the next morning. I told the front desk about the issue and they insisted it was maybe an allergy that I did not... More

I really don't think this property was "average" - at least not in my experience, but didn't want to give it a "poor" rating either; the owners seemed nice. Somewhere in-between, I guess. It was a Husker football Saturday in Lincoln and this was the only room left in town, literally. And because of the football game, our AAA discount... More
