Greeted at check-in by helpful staff - was very helpful in assisting with oversized vehicle for parking. Room smelled a little stale but was tolerable. Lots of places within walking distance. Good coffee shop around the corner from hotel. Typical Holiday Inn experience, always reliable. Stayed here due to a GREAT rate on hotwire.

I know this property was supposedly updated in the not too far past, but you have to keep an eye on things people!

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to fill out a review. We are planning our next extensive renovation for next year. Although we believe we have a very nice product, we also know it's time for some "new" around the hotel. We certainly look forward to having you stay with us again.

From the staff at the desk to the restaurant/bar. Everyone is awesome. Stay here frequently and they are always very accommodating. Rooms are clean and nice and the beds are great. Plus the shuttle service is great being close to all of the nightlife action and the stadium.

We stayed at this hotel a few years back-I did not have any handicap issues that needed special accommodations...jump ahead to 8/12/2015.

We appreciate you taking the time to fill out a review. We are in the planning stages to develop a much bigger and more accessible handicap ramp.

We spent an evening at the Holiday Inn Lincoln while visiting the University of Nebraska campus. It is very convenient to campus. The hotel has a parking ramp ($8 per night) which was very helpful since the hotel staff let us leave our car parked until we finished our campus meetings.

My colleagues and I are here on business and are hanging out in the lounge as we speak! This place is laid-back with a touch of class. And Barb is simply the best. Lincoln is an amazing town, and I highly recommend this spot. Even without the free meatballs and free beer, we would still have loved this little lounge!

Great service and Great Bartender Barb. She is always smiling and very friendly. I have stayed in many of the area Hotels and this one is the best. Close to everything downtown. Great shopping and restaurants all within walking distance.

Barb is hands down the best bartender in Lincoln. If she leaves I'm going with her. Lisa is one of the best hotel managers I have had the pleasure of meeting. Great staff. If your in town on a weekend request the upper two floors for a more peaceful stay.
