“Great Value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Clean and friendly for a Nebraska Cornhuskers weekend! Hotel was great. Pullout couch made it easy for 3 friends to stay together. Plenty of Parking. Free hot breakfast as well. Be aware that cabs are not easy to find in Lincoln, and the hotel is about 4 miles from campus.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We recently stayed here from CA for a Nebraska Cornhuskers game. Everything was really great. The rooms were clean and we were able to check in early. The breakfast was great with eggs, waffles, cereal, pastries, fruit etc.. There was plenty of room to eat even with it being crowded on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Had newspapers on Sunday for free. Everyone was very courteous at the front desk and we encountered no issues with our stay. It's located about 3.5 miles east of the main downtown/haymarket area but the cab home Saturday night was only about 11.00. The room was comfortable and the beds were just fine. Flat Screen TV's in the rooms and plenty of channels. We had no internet problems at all despite reading some complaints in the reviews.

This is a value chain hotel. If you want the Marriott or the Four Seasons then pay the money for that. If you want a nice clean comfortable hotel in good shape that has a good location then I would highly recommend this hotel. Especially if you are in town for game day. All of you people who stay places like this and then are chronic complainers because there is a stain on the carpet somewhere or it wasn't like a 900.00 a night hotel need to stop complaining and go away.

We stayed here on a Sunday night. The room was up to the Choice Hotels standards and we particularly enjoyed the new layout of the room. It wasn't a perfect rectangle like most rooms and we enjoyed the angles presented in the room. Clean and comfortable as always.

This hotel is right next to the mall, but far from downtown or the University of Nebraska. There is certainly sufficient dining, entertainment, and shopping within walking distance but not like the hotels downtown or in south Lincoln.

Good value. Good room. Friendly people.

Room Tip: Main level is just a short trip from the front desk but cars that park next to your room shine light...

The motel is broken in and showing some wear, the breakfast room carpet needs some serious attention. The beep, beep, beep of construction equipment that woke my wife each morning turned out to be the breakfast room waffle iron instead. Although the thermostat was set to 74 degrees, we returned from dinner to a temperature of 78 when the outside temperature was about 95. The air conditioner would not run continuously, must be some innkeeper's energy and money saving feature. One side of a queen bed was right against the air conditioner, the second person had to crawl in from the foot of the bed. The rooms do not meet my definition of a suite (connected rooms), there is only a narrow divider between the bed area and the sitting area.

It is still a nice motel with pleasant staff, clean rooms, nice beds and fixtures. Water was hot and plentiful. Free wifi was fast. The large, flat screen TV had lots of channels. Included breakfast was better than average with yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal, waffles, bagels, pastries, and fresh fruit. They alternate egg dishes and meat; sausage one day, bacon the next. Eggs are frozen and heavy on whites, light on yolks and not as filling as yolkier eggs would be.

This location is handy to the in-laws. We preferred it to the nearby Chase Suites and New Victorian Suites, but the field has leveled.

This is a good place to stay in lincoln. The rooms are nice and clean. The only problem is that getting to the hotel you have to deal with o street and all the one ways. Other than that it is a good place to stay.

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting the University of Nebraska East Campus. It is close to restaurants and shopping, and the rooms are clean and well kept. With the road construction it is a bit hard to find, especially because the parking lot entrance off of Cotner is barricaded, but go around the corner and you can get in from there. The complimentary breakfast was very nice, and they have the make your own waffles, which we love!

Our car broke down in Lincoln, and after being stuck at the mechanic shop for hours all I wanted to do was go to bed and put the day behind me. The mechanic shop kept offering us rooms at motel 8 to which I promptly replied "no thanks". I found this hotel online and when I got to the lobby the desk clerk could tell how exhausted I was and quickly got me a room. It was clean/comfortable/ and quite. ( let me make a side note that I am very picky about cleanliness, especially about a hotel room). The staff was great and very helpful and the hotel was nice and nicely priced. If I had to stay in Lincoln ever again, I would be more than happy to stay here.
