Booked this for a family trip. Called ahead to make sure they had a pool. Upon arrival we noticed the pool was closed. We were first told it was due to weather. Then noticed the pool was drained. Hotel personnel then told us it was due to a backordered part. We cancelled the next night and stayed somewhere else.

Stayed here on a road trip. Selected this hotel because we had the family dog with us and needed a hotel that accommodated pets. The place is quite shopworn and tired. Definitely in need of a major overhaul. Given the number of much newer and nicer hotels all within a block or two of this location, there isn't much to... More

We stay here 2-3 times per month, when we bring our daughter to Lincoln so she can visit her biological mother. .We've used this hotel exclusively since early 2009. The staff is so welcoming and kind. The hotel is very well maintained, clean and reasonably priced. The amenities are all above average for this level of hotels in the area.... More
