The room was clean and odor free. Decent size and beds were comfortable. Bathroom was very clean and had ample amenities. Breakfast was simple but food tasted fresh and good. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I’ve stayed here twice now. The hotel isn’t luxury, for sure, but provides a decent place to stay for an economical price. It’s used less than the big chain hotels, so it’s quieter...which is great since my family has gotten the large, deep pool all to ourselves both time. Breakfast is ok, nothing fancy. Overall it’s a good choice for a quick one-night stay if you’re in town and want fairly quick access to the Omaha area.

This was a good deal at a good price. Enjoyed that we could walk for dinner & drinks to both 712 Eat Drink & the Spillway. Plan to stay again & bring bikes since it is close to the bike trail.

Thanks for your feedback -- sorry about the beds we will get those replaced, but the reason we had to spray air freshener in the hallway was because we had guests in room 122 that were smoking marijuana in their room so heavily that the whole hallway smelled and we were having guests complain about the smell -- thank goodness for our non smoking agreement that we have all of our guests sign -- because these people not only will never be allowed to stay here again, but we have the right to charge them up to $150 for smoking in their room -- which we did -- sorry about air freshener being so strong

Staff were very friendly and as helpful as possible. The first room I was given had a horrible smell and the carpet was damp. I was quickly relocated to a different room. In each room, the furniture was extremely outdated. The mattresses were thin, worn, and the springs were uncomfortable. Also near train tracks.
