We had ear wax on our pillows & hair on the sheets when we got there. The gentleman @ the front desk was very quick to bring us new ones. Overall, we were happy with our stay!

Let me first say that I appreciated the free breakfast, WiFi, and the room was very clean. The pillows on the bed were awful. Instead of 2 full size pillows on a queen sized bed, there were 4 small square pillows (think of throw pillows you'd find on a sofa) which made for an uncomfortable night's sleep. While the location... More

We were in town for a wedding and it was a game weekend for Nebraska. I had to change plans for boarding our dog and called very late to see if they had a room we could use with our dog. The staff was incredibly helpful and figured out how to accomodate us. In addition, our parents who are not... More
