“One of the Best Holiday Inn Stays EVER!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I really try to stay at onf the IHG Chains when I travel and have since 2006. This is by far one of the best stays I've experienced. I was upgraded to a suite. Room was very clean. HD TV!!! They had HD TV! Wow! Free beer, wine, and snacks from 6-8pm was very appreciated and enjoyed. All of the employees were extremely friendly. Everything was extremely clean and up to date.

The hotel was very conveniently located. There is a lot of shopping and restaruant selections close by.

I couldn't have asked for anything else from my hotel. Great job!

Room Tip: Standard rooms do not have fridges.

Wow, what a fantastic review. Thank you! All of our rooms do have mini fridges. They are inside the cabinets under the flatscreen televisions. We serve the free beer, wine, and snacks every night. We also grill out every Wednesday, weather permitting. I am glad you were able to participate. It is a friendly and fun reception and our guests have grown to love it! Come back soon!

I have stayed here in the past but not since the renovation has been finished. Turned out great. the remodel makes the hotel seem much more modern. Friendly check in, very clean rooms. The usual fare for hot holiday express breakfasts.

Thanks for mentioning our public area renovation. We love the modern update as well. This was a great business review and we thank you. We have an indoor pool and a 24 hour fitness center but all guests also have 100% free access to Lifetime Fitness, several block east of the hotel. They offer a lovely outdoor pool with slides!

I have been to this location a couple times now and will be returning again soon. There are some of the nicest employees at this place. They treat everyone with great respect and are truly there to help where they can. I also really like that they offer free beer/wine every Monday-Thursdays. Its nice when on business travel to be able to go sit in their lobby area in some big chairs, watch TV and have a couple beers. I would highly recommend this location. Everyone from the manager to the professionals behind the counter...they are all awesome. I will surely choose this hotel with all of my upcoming visits to Omaha. Keep up the good work!

We spent 3 nights at Omaha West for spring break this year and we were not disappointed! We booked online and got an "early bird" discount making our double queen suite $30 off for each night. (We paid $129.99 per night) We thought that was a great price for the room. The beds were comfy, the linens were nice, the room was clean and we were pleased with the size of the room. The queen suite had two queen beds, a full size sofa sleeper, an office desk with rolling chair, a lounge chair with ottoman, a table and two chairs, a chest of drawers, a mini fridge, a microwave, and another sink outside of the bathroom. The sofa bed was not super comfortable, but it was fine for our youngest son. (He was just happy he did not have to share a bed with his brother!) The pool was nice but the hot tub was broken during our stay. All of the staff were very nice and easy to talk to!

Breakfast was great for a continental breakfast. Each day they had fresh pastries, biscuits and gravy, cheese omelets, sausage or bacon, and make your own pancakes in addition to the "normal" hotel breakfast items. Way more than I expected. Every item was stocked and hot until 9:30 when breakfast was over. Every evening from 6-8 the hotel has snacks and complimentary beer and wine. Not "top shelf" but fun and free!

We brought our dog with us and this hotel was VERY pet friendly. He is a 60 pound "mutt" we adopted from the humane society. (probably part lab and part pitt) There was a one time pet fee of 25.00, not bad at all. There is plenty of room to walk the dog around the hotel for "pit stops". People have not been great about cleaning up after their pets, makes me sad that some pet owners are so irresponsible! They provide bags for cleanup and trash cans for easy disposal.

This hotel is located WEST of Omaha, but we liked being away from the noise and traffic. It took us 20 minutes to get to the zoo (easy drive), 20 minutes to get down town, and 20 minutes to get to two of the dog park. The hotel is located near shopping, places to eat, and places to fuel up. Plenty of parking too.

Only one small issue during our stay: About an hour after we checked out my travel agent friend (who we used to book the room) got a phone call from the manager asking about blankets. The housekeeper reported that two of the blankets were missing from our room and they wanted to see if we had "accidentally" taken the blankets. I called the hotel myself to ask what the heck was going on. I found out the blankets that were "missing" were the small brown blankets that are folded on the foot of the bed. I explained that when the linens were changed the day before those blankets were never replaced. The staff apologized for the mix-up and that was that. Kind of embarrassing to have the my friend the travel agent called about "missing blankets", but not a huge deal. Everyone was VERY nice about it. We would certainly stay here again!

Room Tip: Would certainly spend a little more for a suite. Rooms are much bigger!

Your review is nicely detailed for other travelers. Nice work! We truly loved your visit with us. The boys were polite and well behaved. Kudos to you! Apologies for the small hiccupp at the end there. I hope we see you back in the summer when you can enjoy the outdoor pool and slides at the LifeTime Fitness Center. This is free to all of our guests and they are located about 4 blocks from the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while attending funeral. The hotel arranged for a lower price for our group of people and gave us a room to meet together in. Everything about the hotel was very good. The rooms were clean and comfortable. You had free WiFi. They had a nice breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, fruit, yogurt and other things. They also had a reception every evening with some hot appetizers. The food wasn't high class restaurant scale, but it was good and plentiful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

It appears you were able to enjoy many of our amenities while you were at the hotel. We also offer free passes to LifeTime fitness Center located a few blocks from the hotel. Hopefully we will see you again in Omaha for happier reasons. We were happy to host you and your family. Thank you for the kind review.

Stayed here for 4 nights to visit my newborn grandaughter. The front desk was very friendly and charming. The free breakfast I would have to say was a little better than the average complimentary breakfast. The only problem during our stay (and it wasn't the hotel's fault) was there was a traveling girl soccer team there and they overtook the place. 3 out of the 4 mornings, I didn't even attempt to try to get any breakfast. At night they were way too loud and screaming up and down the halls. I know they're kids, but come on parents...some respect for the other guests. I didn't go the the pool, but speaking with a few other non soccer guests, they pretty much took that over too. Once they left on Monday (it was a holiday weekend), it was much more peaceful. The room itself was fine and very clean. Beds were very comfortable. They have a happy hour every night with free wine until 8.

Room Tip: They did give us the third floor because it was suppose to be quieter with the soccer team, but they...
