At 70.00 a day with a microwave and refrigerator, indoor heated pool, sauna and exercise center, it's hard to beat. The staff is pleasant and very helpful and also prepare a hot breakfast. Just ask for Josh or Taylor.

Shady, too say the least. Driving cross country we stopped here out of sheer exhaustion.Found it comforting to prop a chair against the door. Emptied a new can of Lysol spray between bed and bathroom. Door wouldn't open from outside, took staff over an hour to respond.

Friendly staff. Good room for a quick stop. Pet friendly even though hotel.com did not say so. Good bed, tv, etc. On east end of omaha/ council bluff area. Did not use pool or have breakfast. Have stayed here several times.

I needed a cheap place to stay for a couple nights. I read all the reviews and decided to give American Inn a try. If you're looking for a fancy room, then this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a very clean room, nice tv and the nicest front desk employees and housekeeping staff, that you'll...

I have never in my entire life been treated as rudely as I did at this hotel. We had only been at this hotel for an hour tops and were asked to leave due to my service animal with a refund. I was under the impression hotels had to follow the federal guidelines concerning service animals. Well this one did...

For the price it was ok. Clean room. TV was poor. I felt the cold air come thru the doorway. Noisy heater/air conditioner. We heard maid service knock on some door near us at 6 in the morning. Next time I will spend the extra $20 and go to a better Hotel.

I stayed here for awhile for work. At first was ok. Since I was considered a weekly, I got the worst of the worst for a room. The only weekly cleaning I got was my garbage taken out, new towels, sheets and toilet paper. They did not vacuum, dust or clean anything in the bathroom, EVER! Police constantly being called,...

I was looking for a different hotel with slightly different name. Ended paying for 2 nights before realizing they didn't have free breakfast of the indoor heated pool that I was expecting! The price was reasonable but not my usual choice of places to stay.
