This hotel is a short walk from downtown. I booked the Lincoln Museum room which came with tickets to the Lincoln Museum (saves $7 per ticket), a bottle of water, and snacks. The rooms are updated and very clean. Bed is comfortable as is the temperature of the rooms. Breakfast was free and featured waffles, sausage, eggs, cereal, and pastries.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. The extra chair was a nice addition to relax in. We'll definitely come back for a second stay. Staff was very helpful with questions and directions.

Bedroom was clean, neat and well equipped. Well situated as Lincoln's museum was walking distance from hotel, make sure to ask about discount vouchers for museum and pubs. Breakfast self serve and utencils plastic which I didn't appreciate. All and all money well spent.

I have been so hesitant on staying any where, but the room was so clean and everyone was very respectful. I truly had a great stay. There is so many historic things to see. Need to stay more than one day to do it all. Even get to see both capitol buildings.

Rooms were clean and well appointed. Employees were helpful with directions. Be sure to get the Lincoln Museum package that includes 2 tickets to the museum and library. It will save you a few dollars. It is an easy walk (5 minutes) to the museum, but transportation by the hotel is provided if needed. A continental breakfast was included in... More

The hotel is a little out of the centre of the town but it's walkable and the hotel offers you a free shuttle to wherever you want to go in town. You just call to pick you up to return.

We really enjoyed staying here. The room was beautifully decorated, with a comfortable king bed and fluffy towels. The breakfast was very good - yummy waffles, and had biscuits and gravy, bagels, fresh fruit and canned peaches, yogurt, toast, etc. Very helpful and nice employees at the front desk. They have a shuttle to anywhere within a five mile radius,... More
