I am originally from the Lincoln area, so I know that this is a very established hotel, and has been in service for a good number of years. First of all, when I book through Priceline, I do expect B or C quality rooms,and that... More

Located within walking distance of Haymarket area. Friendly front desk personnel and nice lobby. The rooms were okay, clean but showing their age. I purchased the breakfast deal and can't say it was worth it. It was a basic buffet like you would find at any Holiday Inn Express, with the exception that they offer fresh made omelette. I would...

Stayed for Ribfest. The hotel has some of the most comfortable beds in town. Stayed on the 16th floor and the room was better than most suite's. Book early as because of its prime location it seems to always be at capacity. Enjoyed everything.

The standard rooms were very nice and included a small refrigerator and microwave. The beds had pillow tops. The plumbing drained very slowly but the water pressure was great. My only complaint is that the lovely indoor pool did not have steps to get into it. Instead it only had ladders which are difficult to get out of and easy... More

If your goal is to be in the center of the action in Lincoln, Holiday Inn Downtown fills the bill. The high rise is located adjacent to the Haymarket historic district that is filled with restaurants, bars and shops. Big Red fans can see the stadium from their hotel room window. The facility is adept at handling groups while simultaneously... More

Had the great good fortune to have Nikki be my server at the Holiday Inn restaurant/bar. Actually, it was 3 different times which impressed me with the extensive hours she was working. Next visit I will look for her again.

This was a reasonable place to stay during speed skating nationals. It was only about 5 blocks away, they had a free shuttle that ran us back and forth to Pershing Center and anywhere else within a 2 mile radius. There was a complimentary breakfast, and kids eat free in the restaurant. They allowed for early check in and late... More

I came home at midnight one night to find that my door wouldn't open. Security and the front desk couldn't get it open either, so they had to call the an engineer to get me in. They gave me a different room to stay in while I was waiting and after resting there for 1-2 hours in the middle of... More
