5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

Great room and friendliest, most helpful staff. A bit off the highway.Great hot breakfeast, and those delicious Otis Spunkmeyer cookies always available at front desk! Swimming pool is large enough to actually swim laps; indoors and heated to the proper temp.Good work-out room also.Large room, very clean , micro/fridge and desk. Bed was great .One flaw and that is those steel interior corridor room doors.They slam and make noise when being opened, Either people are just not smart enough nor considerate enough to operate them in a quiet manner, not just close to your room but all the way down the corridor. Still a great stay. Restaurant and bar are attached to the motel with a delightful atmosphere , fantastic staff and food. Shopping nearby.

This was my second stay here and everything was great except that I got no sleep - and, after all, isn't that what we pay for at a hotel?

When I checked in I requested a quiet room - instead I got the nightmare cliche of every hotel story ever told all in the same night.

I was given a room right next to the side entrance door on the first floor. Every single person who came or went went by my room - I could hear their conversations and every time the heavy metal door closed the walls of my room shook. To my right were two yapper dogs, to my left was a screaming toddler, above me were a pair of elephants who, when they decided to cease their stomping around, needed to get amorous. At 12:22am. And their stomping began anew before 6am.

I stay in hotels because I'm on the road a lot - and when I have 10-12 hours of driving to do I need more than 5 hours of sleep. And when I check in at 530pm and request a quiet room I think the hotel can do better than to stick me next to the entrance door between dogs and children.

To be fair the hotel itself is lovely - fresh, immaculately clean, modern touches, comfortable bed and pillows, and the best breakfast buffet I've found in this class level of hotel. But I spend my money to get sleep and the hotel did not accommodate that.

I stayed at the Country Inn and was thoroughly satisfied by the king room. It was clean ands fresh and apparently functional until my wife left a message which I never received because the message light on the phone was not functioning. I called and then noticed that the phone pad was unclean which I also reported. To their credit both were fixed by my retuurn the next day.
The comforter on the bed was way too heavy for the season.
Breakfast both days had many choices yet was typical buffet style with standardized plebian fare.
Overall,you get what you pay for..

This hotel lives up to the Country Inn and Suites standard. The 2-story lobby is charming and welcoming. The lobby stairs lead to a balcony-style, 2nd floor business center which feels more like a home library - very nice. My room was a standard guest room, not a suite, but had been recently renovated. It included a micro/fridge, and a large shower unit that is unusual for hotels, but a nice change.

Only one small downside: I was on the 2nd floor, and could clearly hear the guest(s) above me pacing their room. It wasn't children jumping or even a "hard walker," but was still very clear and loud from below. The floors/ceilings are not adequately insulated against that normal noise.

I especially enjoyed room service from the attached Beacon Hills restaurant. The prime rib flatbread pizza was delicious! After driving half-way across the state, I was ready to unwind with some good food in my comfortable room. This place fit the bill. I intend to make this hotel my regular stay-over before early morning flights home from Lincoln.

Room Tip: Get highest level, if possible, to avoid hearing guests above walking around.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel while on a short trip to visit family in NE. We had booked online through the Carlson website and received a 15% discount. Check in was efficient and the front desk person was very friendly and helpful.She told us that she loved her job and it showed. We received discount tickets for drinks and dinner at the adjoining restaurant. Our king room was comfortable although a little too warm and we had to turn on the a/c (in Feb). The bathroom was pretty small but adequate. Breakfast the next morning was very good and the breakfast hostess was very helpful and attentive. Obviously this hotel values customer service.

We were driving back from Denver to Des Moines and got a late start so needed to stop for the night. I saw an expedia unadvertised special for fifty bucks on a 3 star hotel and hoped I'd snag a Holiday inn. When I got my confirmation at the Country inn and Suites I lowered my expectations, which was entirely the wrong thing to do. From the comfortable inviting check in area with complimentary snacks and hot beverages, the nice and abandoned pool area and hot tub (outside hot tub even in sub zero weather) to our well appointed room-I was impressed. The room had very comfortable beds a nice tv and looked clean. My 3 complaints and they are minor: a hole in the wall in our room had been filled with spackle and had not been painted, our shower had a crack in show wall and looked like it had been shabbily repaired with silicon caulk, and finally I asked for a king bed and they said that they 'had to give me 2 queen beds'. The huge number of empty spots in the parking lot made me think that they likely had a room available but just weren't being flexible.

Again these are pretty minor, overall I was very happy with everything including the hot full breakfast served. Nebraska hotel taxes are criminal but that's none of Country Inn and Suites doing. I would definitely stay again.
