We had a wonderful stay this last weekend with our boys. The only draw back was that the hotel was very crowded. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The pool was very enjoyable and breakfast was nice.

I might call this "nice hotel, odd location in the off season." The hotel was good - clean, cool, quiet but when you're not attending a convention, it has a bit of an odd feeling to it. But I shouldn't complain! The price was great for what we got. It was hot as blazes outside and the room was cool.... More

We stayed one night. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We went down for breakfast and at 8:30 A.M. the staff quit putting out food and started cleaning up. We thought it was a bit early.

We took a two day trip to Omaha Zoo and stayed here. We had a late check in and had a pleasant experience with the lady at the front desk. They were booked and there was hardly any parking anywhere. We also did not realize how close this hotel was to a casino which I didn't care for as we... More

Every room was taken the night we were there...I am sure this speaks to the quality of a hotel this is. The pool was pretty crowded (it was a full hotel), but nice. The rooms were very nice, comfortable, and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had on our entire roadtrip. I highly recommend... More
