We rarely stay at the lower-end hotels anymore but found this one to be very nice. The room was small as expected with just enough room for the queen-sized bed, table for two and dresser, but everything was clean and well-maintained. The bed was comfortable and they provided a variety of different types of pillows, so we could find one to our liking. The continental breakfast turned out to be the most pleasant surprise with a waffle maker along with the expected bagels, muffins and cereal, and more than just the regular OJ and apple juice to drink. The staff was friendly and helpful, even offering us a late check-out when we arrived later than expected due to changing time zones and a rough start getting out of town that morning. Our only complaint was the company policy to charge $15 extra for our small dog; making the price more compatible with the middle-range hotels we usually stay in but with the smaller accommodations.

Thank you for the very detailed description of your stay. It is good to hear that you appreciated the variety of pillows in your room, the variety of breakfast items, and our accommodating staff. I will reevaluate our pet policy. Again, thank you for staying with us and giving us a great review. - David

We dropped in here about 9:30 on a Tuesday evening when we couldn't find a room in Davenport, IA. The staff was very accomadating and explained that all the hotels in a 50 mile radius were filled because of multiple events. We were happy to find a room in the inn!

The 3 of us were assigned a suite for $89, a real deal. 2 king size beds and a sofa in the sitting area. Too bad we arrived so late and couldn't enjoy it more!

The room was very clean and quiet.

The only shortcoming was that the clerk would not accept our Quality Inn Choice card, saying the EconoLodge was not part of the program. We are trying to get credit for our stay at this property via email to the Choice Motels people.

Would stay here again if we pass through this area.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 222, a suite. View was unremarkable, but the room was quiet and comfortable.

Yes, I would have to agree. Actually, the beds are pillow top queen size beds and yes, it is one of the best deals in town. I apologize that the clerk wasn't clear regarding your Choice Privilege points. It appears that Choice has awarded you your points for your stay. Thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to your return visit. - David

Off the I-80 and in the middle of Nebraska. Everything worked, wi-fi, mini fridge and microwave. Nice little breakfast area. Friendly staff and when I asked about a local coffee shop to refill my thermos the lady went in the back and filled my thermos from the fresh pot they had prepared. Beds were comfortable and suited our one night stay perfectly. Recommend.

Even though I keep hearing how friendly our staff is, I think that we have some of the friendliest guests. That's what makes hospitality fun and a great place to work. We really do enjoy serving our guests. Thank you for bringing your family along to stay with us. We really do appreciate it. - David

Stayed here two nights for a soccer tournament. By far the best value of any known chain in town. Great hotel. Excellent and friendly staff. Standard hotel breakfast. Clean and quiet rooms. What else do you need for a quick overnight stay.

Yes, being in the middle of the United States along I-80 makes for a great road trip hotel. We do offer the basics of clean rooms, comfortable beds, deluxe continental breakfast, and friendly staff - all at a value-price. I really do appreciate your taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. Thanks for staying with us. - David

We stayed in Kearney for the state speech contest held at UNK and had booked rooms at a Marriott-franchised property. On the Friday before our contest, that hotel called and cancelled our rooms since we were a school group. We found rooms at the Econo Lodge on a last-minute basis and we are very glad we did. The rate was great, the rooms appeared recently renovated, and were exceptionally clean. However, the best asset was their customer service. Alex was amazing at the front desk on Wednesday evening. Check-in was easy with our group and we were greeted every time we entered the building. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for great service, clean rooms and a value-based stay.

I feel like I should send a thank you note to the hotel who cancelled your rooms and gave us a chance. I am very proud of the team that we have in place, whether it is those that are making sure rooms are clean and everything is ready during the day, those welcoming guests to our hotel in the evening, or those taking care of breakfast and thanking guests in the morning. Thanks for taking the time to share on TripAdvisor. We look forward to your return trips to Kearney. - David

Reasonable rates for clean comfortable room. Queen size beds for extra comfort. Dog friendly. Nice breakfast. Parking lot very well lit up. Food venues steps away. Close to expressway exit. Would stop again when passing thru. the Nitas from Chicago.
