We chose this HI Express, not realizing it was NOT the one we thought it was. Let's just say it was not what we expected for a HI Express property. The properties own web site had a notation about the pool being closed for repairs dated June 2011 and when we checked in the front desk informed us their pool was closed for repairs. So they never did fix the pool or their pool is just old and needs lots of repairs, not sure what the answer is? The hotel is not in what we consider a good location. Our idea of good location is near places to eat other than the run of the mill fast food/drive through. No shopping at all unless you are into low end goods and services. Keep in mind, our desires may be very different than what your, hotel/motel experience should be about, so you may be very content staying here. We requested to be changed from the our first room which was directly across the hall from the vending and ice machines to one away from it and any other notice inviting location, such as the elevator, stairways, service rooms; as in past stays we find those locations to be not conducive to rest and sleep. The room we were first assigned was on the second floor and the elevator was so small the two of us and the luggage cart were just about the maximum capacity it could hold. The breakfast room was smallish and very plain and selection was ok but it seemed more carb laden than other HI Express Inns/Suites we have stayed in. Cereal choices were sugar laden and that was a disappointment. The refrigerator in the breakfast room was not working. You could knock on the “employee only” door that was the kitchen and request a milk, yogurt, etc., which would normally be in the refrigerator, so that was a hassle. The very busy liquor store directly behind the hotel, and which our ground floor room over looked, was a bit unnerving, and so we left our drapes closed. There was no mini frig or microwave in the room. No “enclosed closet” just a “notched out area” next to the bathroom. Flat screen TV in the room was ok not the best picture quality. Room had a king size bed, love seat sofa (not a sleeper) desk with chair and dresser unit with ample drawers. Room was clean, bed and bath linens clean and soft, the bed was comfortable, HVAC was a nice quite unit which is a big plus for a good night sleep and there was not street noise that made its way into the room. The blackout curtains had no age or sun damage that caused light to get into the room, another plus for a good night sleep. Fitness room was extremely small and only three pieces of equipment and crammed together. The staff we encountered during our stay were very nice. As we were leaving our room to check out, we did see that the room across from ours appeared to be the early process of being what appeared to be gutted out for a renovation. Also, if you do stay for the first time at this property, its address is Belmont Ave, but there is no entrance to the hotel off Belmont. You will turn off Cornhusker Hwy onto 11th, directly behind the KFC fast food is the entrance to the gas station, turn in there and instead of pulling into the gas pump lanes continue forward into the hotel parking lot where the front entrance is.
