CAUTION: Do NOT stay in the back side of the hotel. There is a "Gentlemans Club" right next to the hotel and the music was SO loud and continued until 4 AM! All I could hear was booming bass all night. Not the hotel's fault but I got very little sleep. (bad location!)

This is a typical airport hotel in that it is well worn. Needs a bit of updating but the room was clean and the beds were ok. We used the guest laundry which consists of one washer and one dryer. Which was fine but the washer was in use by another guest who did a couple loads so we didn't get to use it until around 11PM. I loved having a fridge and a microwave in the room. The location is great if you're using the airport (good location!) but the fact that the strip club next door was so loud I probably will not be staying here again unless I'm guaranteed the room farthest from the club.

Room Tip: Request a room on the front side of the hotel. The "Gentlemans Club" right next door plays...

I chose this hotel based on generally very good experiences at La Quinta hotels. Not this one. I arrived late in the evening got to my room and the toilet wouldn't flush. They fixed it the next day, but forgot to put the cover back on. On my second day they forgot my walk up call. In addition I couldn't get the room cool enough even setting the thermostat down to 55.

The only good thing were the free breakfasts.

This hotel needs work. Try somewhere else until they refurbish this one.

Average hotel experience. Will say that it is nice having a microwave and fridge in your room though. We were on the front side of the hotel and couldn't get all the light blocked from the window. But room was quiet and bed was comfy.

The hotel is conveniently located near the airport for those travelers needing a hotel close to the airport. Despite it's close location to the airport, it's very quiet. We have stayed here twice when driving across the country between AZ and WI twice a year. This location is a little out of the way when traveling across the country, but considering how nice and quiet it is, my husband and I think it's worth the slight inconvenience off the interstate. (We had a very unpleasant stay at another La Quinta in Omaha 2 years ago. That's when i learned the value of Trip Advisor !). After that bad experience, we relied on others reviewers comments about all La Quinta's in Omaha and chose this one. The only other downside to this location are the lack of nearby restaurants. You do have to drive a way to find somewhere to eat. Other than this, it's a nice, clean and quiet hotel.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with pets, reserve on-line and ask for a first floor room for easy access to...

The la Quinta is a great place if you need a night near the Omaha airport. Clean, great brekfast, pool. If you have time you can get a van to the river bridge and walk to the casino. Saw a free concert in the park yesterday.. Awesome. Only complaint was the hot RIC chlorine level was so bad I couldn't open my eyes in it. Overall a good place and pretty close to downtown too.

I decided on this hotel after searching the internet for hotel prices in the area. The price was reasonable, just went to the hotel without creating a reservation via internet. Front desk was great, fast and friendly. Before I could ask, they told me about the very early start for breakfast 4AM, asked me about a wake-up call, told me about the pool and hot tub and gave me a couple ideas for places to eat!! WOW great job!. They are remodeling the place, but still clean and no problems with that. Only complaint is the pool water was very cool. I think they had just added water to it and the heater wasn't keeping up. The hot tub though was fantastic!! Will stay here anytime I need a place to stay when doing anything in the area of Omaha airport. THANKS La Quinta!
