Check in was quick & easy. Bed comfortable. Complementary breakfast offered a variety of food, hot & fresh. Pool & hot tube a bit small for a near full hotel. Loved the shower. They were helpful in suggesting restraunts, points of interest & transportation services. FREE friges & wifi the room. Would highly recommend

Stayed one night in the jacuzzi room for a night away from home.

Check in was quick and easy front desk staff was very friendly.

Hotel looks brand new. Every part I walked around was very well kept.

Room was much larger than I expected and so was the jacuzzi. Easily fits two!

The only complaint I have is the walls are very thin and I hope they do something with the room doors. When they close they slam so loudly it almost startles you. I understand the way hotel room doors work but these border on ridiculous.

Other than that great hotel, and great staff from the front desk to the cleaning crew!

Besides, being a nice clean hotel with friendly staff and good service. We called ahead to let the hotel know that we were driving thru the night and would not be in until 4am or so. When we arrived, they had everything ready so all we had to do was hand them a Drivers License and credit card, they handed us our keys and we went straight to our room, took less than 2 minutes. Waiting on us in our room was a very nice note, along with some valentines day candy, saying they were sorry we had to drive thru the night and since we would probably sleep thru breakfast, they left us some fruit and some waters in the fridge. They also made up the sofa sleeper for us. So all we had to do was walk in and fall down on the beds and sleep. This warmed our hearts and made us feel very welcome. This was far and above the normal service. The managers at this hotel deserve to be commended for such sweet and thoughtful gestures.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who has to go to Omaha, NE, or Council Bluffs, IA. It's just minutes (a few miles) from downtown Omaha. There's a Bass Pro almost a stone's throw away as well. Oh...several casinos nearby if that's your game!

The hotel appeared newly built, and if not...so clean, it appeared new. The rooms were spacious, staff courteous, and the breakfasts were great.

Free Coffee! Who's have thought?

So...bottom line...this volleyball tournament hotel stay was super, from beginning to end.

Thanks so much for the review and kind words, Dave S.!

We love hosting guests in town for the annual volleyball tournament, and this year was no exception. We're glad you found your stay enjoyable -- that seemed to be the sentiment from many of our guests that week.

And don't forget we're just down the road from the Henry Doorly Zoo -- fun for the whole family. We hope to see you again, Dave!

We needed to change to a first floor room and Malissa did it immediately. She even offered to help us bring our suitcases from the third floor. We have stayed there before and will return when in the area. Clean, great staff, good food. Room is clean, comfortable, and has all the emenities. Highly recommend!!! THANKS MALISSA!
