Very nice accomodations. The staff was helpful and very positive. My room was spacious, very clean and very quiet. I appreciate the amenities offered, including laundry and breakfasts. Very nice place to stay and very affordable. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

The room was clean but rather dated. The room above us had a party at 2:04 am and we could hear it like it was in our room! I really thought they were going to come through the ceiling.

Initially, our bathroom sink wouldn't drain, we lived with it! The television was very outdated, no problem. We attended a CORNHUSKER evening game. I was a bit chilled, so turned on the heater.

The room was clean and basic. Surprised to find only a shower and no tub. The breakfast was just ok and could have included more choices. The hotel is very easily accessible from I-80 traveling either east or west. Perkins restaurant was very close.
