“Some Good - Some Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stayed here before and were happy with it so returned again on this years vacation.
I booked online and was very specific that we want an upstairs room. When we got there , the gal tried to put us downstairs and seemed a little peeved that we wanted upstairs plus my hubby asked for a room with a view of the parking lot. So he could try out the new binoculars he bought at Cabelas. The other rooms have a view of a rock wall ....So she gives us a room with a lovely view of the canopy over the front entrance...boy my hubby was pi**ed off...the computer desk chair was broken and sank way down so there was nowhere to sit but on the bed with my computer which was very uncomfortable.But on the plus side they did give us a nice government discount and the room was comfy and clean tho a bit small. There is a mall nearby and places to eat. Breakfast was A+ + +...

Other reviews of this hotel were positive, so I didn't expect any problems. Our room was very damp and humid. When I complainted to the desk, the answer was that it was very humid outside. I think the air conditioner was defective. My daughter was working on homework and her papers actually felt wet. Also, the housekeeping staff seemed inadequate. Rooms still being cleaned when we returned to hotel between 4 & 5 pm. Would not stay here again.

This hotel is very reasonably priced for what we got; 2 queen beds, a large TV, indoor pool, and a large breakfast. The breakfast includes waffles, sausage, eggs, and the usual carbohydrates all hotels with breakfasts offer.

This AmericInn was clean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was good and staff was friendly and helpful, giving information regarding the local area. We usually stay with family when in the area but would use this hotel again if we need to.

Wasn't planning to stay this far west, but glad hotel was available. The clerk honored coupon rate for room--very happy with rate. Beds were fine. Swimming pool was fine. Breakfast was good- plenty of variety including hot--biscuits, gravy, eggs, waffles. And cold-- cereal, milk, juice, rolls, bagels.
Would stay there again.

I've never stayed at AmericInn being from the Northeast, and I was very surprised with this hotel. I checked in around 2, the night auditor Bud was great, and the room was extremely comfortable. Everything was updated and clean. My only complaint is that one of the free omelets was a bit cold for some reason but I still ate it and was happy.

Keeping doing what you do!

We stayed at this motel when we ran Marathon in Omaha . This Motel is just 5 mile from start line of Omaha Marathon. It is located at very nice location close to shopping area , restaurants and casinos. The day before the marathon we were able go for short run around the motel.It has beautiful neighborhood. Motel is newly renovated. Great clean rooms. They give hot breakfast in the morning and hotdogs in the evening. We relaxed at casino in the evening after running the marathon. Motel has three Casino within 5 miles. Nice hotel with swimming poll and Sauna, great service.
