I got this motel because it was the cheapest I could find and therefore expected low quality. However, the rooms were large, clean, and well furnished; the pool and jacuzzi was clean, warm, and beautiful; and Lynn at the desk was extremely helpful and welcoming to us. I would highly recommend and return here. Thanks for a great stay!

Nicest Econo Lodge I've been to. Extremely nice people. Great breakfast. Very nice bed, comparable to higher end hotels. I would expect this lwvel of quality at a Comfort Inn and at a much higher rate. Plenty of parking for xars, RVs and trucks.

My family and I stayed here this past weekend. We chose the hotel primarily because it was pet-friendly. The "per night" charge for pets was quoted as $15 online, but when I arrived, the form I was given said $20. The girl at the desk explained that some sites hadn't been updated but quickly said she would honor the $15... More

Stayed here for one night in Columbus day weekend. Sort of last minute booking so we paid a relatively high rate for an Econolodge, accepting it because we assumed it would be full that day. This appear not to be the case. Room decor and furnishings were dated. Must note that refurbishment is going on, so rooms may improve in... More

I was very disappointed by the dark and dated atmosphere of this hotel. It badly needs renovation, but the prices reflect a higher standard. We only booked here because we were desperate and saw it on AAA. But this is why TripAdvisor is more relevant than AAA. It's rated appropriately low on TripAdvisor, and AAA should drop it until they... More

Nicole & the lady she was training checked us in and it was very smooth. I asked if our room has always been a non-smoking/non-pet room and she said it was not. I have a chronically ill child and we need a pet free smoke free room. They upgraded us for free. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!... More

We booked a "suite" for a family weekend in Lincoln. When we checked in we had a room to the back in the separate building- but when we opened the door- wow, it smelled like it had not been opened in a very long time. The stench of must and mildew was overpowering.. The decor and room are antiquated at... More
