““Great Hotel, very convenient””
Reviewed November 20, 2012

It is a great hotel if you are travelling I-80 - Superb location! Worth the stay! Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The best part was the waffles in the morning as a part of their complimentary breakfast. Hotel is very well kept. Definitely would stay again.

I stayed here on a recent cross-country trip. By the time I had arrived in Kearney, I had driven several hundred miles and was ready for a nice place to lay my head down, and I wasn't disappointed. This is the kind of place I've come to expect from Country Inn (and Carlson too.) Clean, comfortable room, friendly staff, a free glass of wine, and even though the pool was closed for repair when I arrived, I have nothing but good things to say.

Room Tip: If you show up on Sunday through Thursday between 5pm and 7pm, there are free drinks in the lobby!

I was told my confirmation number was not valid. My name for reservation was spelled wrong. I was to have direct billing which I was told they didn't have any record/information for that. I was also to be tax exempt which they had no record of either. They had to call the agency to get the tax exempt number. The front desk girl was rather rude during the whole check in process. I was also surprised that I had to give a credit card so they could hold $25 in funds for incidentials. I will certainly think twice before staying here again. If you do stay, get all details in writing! It could save you a lot of hassle when checking in!

Room Tip: Request confirmation of your reservation in writing. Make sure your name is spelled correctly &...

After requesting a room away from the vending machines, we were given a room across the hall from them. Even with the door closed, you could hear them run. We requested a room on the other end of the hall, and after some haggling, were given a quieter room (they were not full). The included wine/beer and snacks in the dining room were most welcome after being on the road for 11 hours. There is a wonderful hike/bike trail not far from the hotel that we made good use of. Breakfast was varied and plentiful enough we did not need to find a restaurant for breakfast as we usually do when faced with a hotel "included" breakfast!

Room Tip: Request a room away from the vending machines. They are the noisiest I've ever heard!

Our room was comfortable. I liked the fact that we could leave the fan on the A/C on continually to keep the air circulating. The hotel was clean. When we checked in, we had a coupon from the visitors bureau, but was told we couldn't use as we had gotten such a good rate deal online. (It really wasn't that great of a deal) Breakfast was excellent. There were many things to choose from and ample seating. The breakfast would be what would bring me back to this hotel.

This hotel offers the perfect location. It's right off of the interstate, but you don't hear any of the traffic. The manager's reception with the free beer was exactly what I needed after driving all day. The breakfast in the morning was a LOT more than expected. I was expecting rolls, bagels, and cereal. They had fritatas, potatoes, biquits and gravy, waffles, fresh fruit, juices, 3 different kinds of coffees!! Even though the breakfast room was a little crowded (which seems to be the case in EVERY hotel), the real dishes and silverware made you feel more at home and so I didn't care anyway. The rooms very spacious. The rooms weren't perfect but with 200 hotel nights stays a year, for me this is one of my top picks and I will definitly be back!!
