I stayed here last weekend on the first night of a cross country road trip. Low maintenance as I am, it met my needs. It can be somewhat off-putting when you first enter, as it seems to double with a truck stop; so the first thing you are greeted with particularly when arriving later at night is an army of trucks parked in front of you with engines purring (though they would probably take offense to my use of 'purring') . However, the sound was not noticeable from my room.
I also found the hot tub and pool to be pretty nice - always a big plus while road tripping. There appeared to be no towels available when I arrived, but just as I was preparing to splash my way out to the lobby in a pink speedo and demand service, the front desk lady intuitively (and mercifully) brought in a fresh batch.
The room itself was pretty nice as well. The air conditioning unit made a bit of a racket, but such is life when trying to find balance on the noise level - sleepable temperature continuum. Cell reception (sprint) did seem to be spotty in the room, as I tried repeatedly to make a call and was unable. My phone worked fine outside though and it did indicate full service in the room when I looked later, so it could well have been just my phone throwing a fit. Also, the side door that was 'locked at all times' was not, in fact, locked at all times and was wide open at 11pm or so when I had to get back in. Maybe not as big a deal, but potentially significant when you're a TripAdvisor celebrity like myself. And if I were manning the helm after hours, I'd probably want to know what sort of cheery Marilyn Manson worshippers were prancing through the hallways during the night.
Yes it's on the expensive side as far as Comfortable Inns go, but when you're one of a scant few lodging options for something like a thousand miles in either direction, you get to do things like that. Plus it's the world freaking headquarters of Cabela's! Who wouldn't want to pay the big bucks for that???
