Knowing I was going to arrive at the airport in Omaha around 11pm, I booked one night at this hotel. The airport shuttle was extremely convenient and is run by a company named Stewart's. (My first kudos go to the driver, because he was nice enough to stop and run me by a convenience store to pick up some necessaries for the night, which I greatly appreciated.)
GREAT location in terms of distance from the airport. I found the hotel very basic, but then again, that is all I needed for this stay. The room was just totally standard issue--nothing at all remarkable about it. I was very confused by the in-room coffeemaker, which was more like some weird carafe contraption; so confused, in fact, that I opted to just wander into the breakfast area for my coffee instead of trying to figure it out.
Breakfast was pretty good. They even had hard-boiled eggs, which seem to be disappearing from a lot of the bargain chain hotel breakfasts lately.
Was very disappointed that I was unable to get up and have an early morning swim because some jerk tossed a bag of potato chips into the pool. Not really the hotel's fault, but the pool and jacuzzi were one of the main factors that influenced me to choose this hotel. Could've probably paid a lot less for the same room at another hotel without a pool.
Hotel does offer the option of smoking rooms, which is another thing that seems to be a bit harder to find than it used to be. Generous checkout time of noon made for a nice, leisurely chance to wake up. Staff was friendly enough. Room was presentable and reasonably clean, although the one complaint I did make to the desk clerk as I was checking out is that the shower head was absolutely FILTHY. It was so bad that I took a bath to wash my hair because I didn't want water that had run through it touching my body.
All in all, solid, basic and certainly good enough for an overnight, though in retrospect, I feel like the rate I got ($67 and change including taxes) was maybe $10-15 over what it should have been for this property. Maybe I'd have felt differently after a quick dip in the jacuzzi!
