We found the staff and service to be very good. We had no complaints about our stay. Rooms were clean, breakfast area was clean and well staffed. The breakfast selection was very good. Lots of restaurant choices near by and the Russell Stover Candy Store almost shares a parking lot with them.

Hotel was very clean and staff was very helpful. The location was very convenient as it was just off the interstate but you didn't hear any noise from the trucks or cars travelling past. Complimentary breakfast was perfect!

I booked a king non-smoking room I am an IHG Gold Member. My profile says King non-smoking rooms. I arrived and was assigned two doubles smoking. I was moved to a non-smoking doubles room because there were no King beds left. I then had to sleep with my room window open all night because the paint fumes were giving me... More

Hello "saftichick" I apologize for the inconvenience during the check-in process. I recall your stay, as I was at the Front Desk with our agent that checked you into the hotel. Unfortunately your profile actually does state smoking for the preference. The agent and I both reviewed your profile after check-in and it did state smoking. Our agents moved you... More

The rooms are average, the workout area needs improvements but the cookies are good! The tvs are small however, the beds feel good and clean. I like the soap, lotion and the other things are nice that are located in the room.

It was torture. Like sleeping on the floor. The hotel was doing some remodeling, but paint will not make up for beds that feel like wood! Love this exit because it is convenient, but we will never stay here again!

Hello JimmyG I apologize that the mattress was uncomfortable! Unfortunately mattress comfort is a very personal preference, as our "mattress comfort scores" through guest feedback are on average very high. Our housekeeping team flips and/or rotates mattresses on a three month rotational schedule. I'm sorry you didn't sleep well! Please feel free to contact me directly at dpriddy@hvmemail.com and I...

The hotel was not anything near new, but was clean without smoking smell. Our room was clean, too. The free breakfast was a bit above average in Holiday Inn Express chain. The staff were fairly friendly and helpful. The beds were too soft (to us).

We were in Lincoln when many places were closed for Sunday. The staff were able to direct us to a family restaurant that was wonderful.Kind friendly people make all the difference when travelling with children.
