Overall we had an "ok" stay. I had friends visiting from out of town for my birthday weekend. The location was all right. 10 minutes to lincoln, 20 to the beach. the trouble started right as we arrived at 2:30 and were told our room would be ready in 20 minutes which sounded great because check in time was 3 pm. The room wasn't ready until 4:30pm!!!. Thankfully the very unproffesional staff comped us one of our parking spots. The AC in the bedroom was great, but the one in the living room where the sofa beds are kept turning off and did not keep the room cooled. The knobs on the a/c were all ripped off except for one. We asked for someone to come see it to fix it, they arrived three hours later and did nothing. The sofa beds were the most uncomfortable things I have ever slept on. We would have been better off sleeping on the floor. I was surprised when i was asked to bring the towels to the office at the end of my stay. Shouldn't housekeeping be in charge of that? The kitchen was dirty and stocked with used plastic utensils. gross!! I will say the size of the room was great and it accommodated all 7 of us well. Would I stay again? Absolutely not.
