I came to this hotel as part of a convention. The staff are friendly and helpful and the restaurant food was good, though on the expensive side. I was disappointed to find there was no breakfast. My biggest complaint was the room. Everything appeared outdated and carpet was very wet under the air conditioner. The room had a smell to... More

I stayed here due to the location and proximity to the Haymarket area which is up and coming. Unfortunately, there was an emergency in the night, and when I went to turn on the bedside lamp it didn't work so I was frantically looking for a light to turn on. As for the pillows, they put an elaborate fabric sign... More

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review as we value your opinion and take each comment to heart about what we do well and what we need to do better.

Spent the weekend in Lincoln and received an excellent room rate that included breakfast daily; make sure you request the free breakfast. The hotel is less than a block from the Haymarket and excellent bars and restaurants. The hotel is dated, the rooms show their age and furniture is not attractive although wide screen HDTV was in the room. Bathrooms... More

We are really excited and hope you come back and see us after it is complete. More

The restaurant buffet breakfast was <$10 for all-you-can-eat bacon, sausage, eggs (cooked to order), fruit, etc. A real buffet bar, not a "continental". The staff was extremely friendly, and went out of their way to ask my name and refer to me by name. My waiter was Danny, but Andrew was also attentive, as well as others who I didn't... More

The greatest bartender in the Haymarket! This is the best hotel and the managers priority club happy hour is really nice. The staff is very friendly and make sure you are well taken care of. They want 200 words so I will tell you that Barb is the bartender and she makes sure all the customers are happy. She is... More

This is by far the friendliest and most welcoming staff I have ever encountered in any hotel. From the first day I got here they have been nothing but friendly and courteous. That plus the location makes it by far the best value in Lincoln.

We come to Lincoln often - generally once a month - so stay here often. Barbara at the bar remembers us and our preferences. Consistently clean and friendly. Have brought friends here to stay as well. The Hay Market area is great for finding places to eat and walking around. The parking garage is tight - but, realistically, it is... More

This is a very large hotel downtown in the Haymarket district. The service was very good and they were very willing to please. We stayed with my son's basketball team. There were 2 weddings being held there plus numerous baseball teams. Parking is VERY tight IF you can get in the parking garage. It also costs $7 to park in... More

I and my fellow chaperones looked after 14 teenagers in this hotel while we were in town for the Thespian Festival. They gave us a great government rate and even offered the buffet breakfast every morning. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the sweetest lady named Patty served us wonderful "mini-omellettes", which are really regular sized omelletes... More

We stayed at this hotel with our son's baseball team and everyone was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Danny provided service in abundance in the Red Onion Bistro during breakfast, and Barb was a fun and friendly bar tender in the lounge.
