We chose to stay at this hotel because of its proximity to a wedding we were attending. It's not the usual hotel we choose in Lincoln, mainly because breakfast isn't included with your stay. Check-in was very slow - there wasn't anyone at the desk for the first 5 minutes, but it still seemed kind of slow once she showed up. The common areas of the hotel (lobby, hallways, and restaurant/bar were all we saw) were clean and the rooms weren't bad. I don't think that it had been vacuumed very well because I found several things on the floor, one of them being the plastic loop off a price tag. There were also some "drips" in the bathroom that make me wonder about how well everything gets cleaned. And some dust on the headboard. Hummmm? But compared to the last several hotels we have stayed at, this one was clean. And the bed was comfortable. One downside was that everytime the room next to us or above us (I couldn't tell which one it was) flushed the toilet or used the shower, we could hear this very loud rush of water. And when they used the hot water, we could hear the pipes contracting in our wall. It's one thing if someone in your room is using the restroom in the middle of the night and wakes you up. It's a totally different story if it is another room! (And several times at that!) It was very annoying. That's part of the reason why I would suggest that you get a room on the top floor. The other being that we could hear them walking, jumping, whatever it was. All that said, this is not a bad hotel, just not the one to pick if you want a little breakfast before you hit the road in the morning. There is a restaurant/bar that serves breakfast, but you have to pay (they told us that we could get 40% off by showing our room key). I would rather have some fruit and yogurt included with the price versus the Omaha World Herald outside my door. I'm thinking that the people who are not from Nebraska would especially appreciate the food vs. the paper. There is a Village Inn right down the street and other restaurants nearby if you are hungry and the shopping in the area is very good too if you want to partake in that. It's no where near the interstate or airport though if you are traveling.
