This is a fantastic value in Lincoln. Easy on/off from I-80 and the rooms have all been udpated. New flat-screens, new mattresses, AC/heat worked well and was quiet. You'd be hard pressed to find a better value in the Lincoln area. A few fast food joints nearby and a Perkins across the street. Internet worked well too. The man who... More

The Horizon Inn was an inexpensive stopover for us as we drove from WI back home to CO. Compared to others we looked at, the price was good. A couple things were not quite up to par: no wake-up call that we requested, and the breakfast, advertised as a "hot breakfast", included only make-your-own waffles in the "hot" category. I... More

Clean comfortable & relatively spacious room includes a refrig & micro. Breakfast included cook your own waffles, oatmeal, great variety of bagels and kept clean (only fruit was bananas ). Friendly help. Perkins across the road gives you 10% offwhen you show the room card.

The room was clean and the crib we requested when booking online was already in the room. Excellent service and pleasant staff. Outer doors are locked at night and requires hotel room key to be swiped to get in, made it feel secure. Great hot water and water pressure. Only negative was it felt like too much unnecessary furniture in... More

I have seen similar rooms in hotels that run $30 more a night. Nice water pressure in the shower. The staff was polite. The coffee was good I only wish. that the breakfast hours lasted past 9am. The location was great and you get a discount at Perkins.

Horizon Inn is the only motel I ever stay at if I need a place to stay. You get a great room for the price you pay and excellent service every time! The room and bathroom is always clean and guest-specific accommodations are always made in order to have the most enjoyable stay. I highly recommend this motel in Lincoln.

Never stayed here before but are always doing the I-80 drive. Read the reviews and it looked too good to pass up. It lived up to the many good reviews. Nothing glamorous; but for renting a bed for a night and being treated well it was excellent. Room was clean, with free wifi and breakfast (not very big but what... More

The motel was clean and recently updated. It is an older motel but the updates are nice. The beds are firm, the shower good, and the breakfast is carb laden but adequate. The juice and coffee are on the thin side but fine. Works well for a stop on a long trip.
