We stayed in North Platte on our way to Colorado, and this was the best rated breakfast place, for good reason! The people were so friendly, and the cook, Paul, was really charming and gave us a lot of helpful travel tips and ideas for...More

We were staying at the Baymont right next door. The Baymont gives you a voucher, for every day of your stay, for Penny's Diner. Food is good, very reasonably priced and good portions. Service was very good.

We had a voucher for breakfast from the Baymont hotel next door and figured - breakfast at a diner should be OK. The voucher offered $3.50 off any meal which should go a long way toward a normal breakfast at a diner. Not so here,...More

I am not able to answer your question, as I stayed at the Fairfield Inn in North Platte. I believe if any hotel offers free breakfast at Penny's Diner it might be the one right next to it (Oak Tree Inn?).
