We stayed here for a short overnight sleep. When we got there our room had been upgraded but we needed two queens and only had a king in the upgrade. The night manager immediately changed our room and was very helpful with a few extra requests. Thank you for a great quick stay!

This property is a little out the way, as in, make a few turns to get there. The parking lot is in need of repair, and entering and exiting is a bit limited, but overall its well worth it Staff were all very professional, nice, and just all around fun. The property is located near Bass Pro, Horseshoe Cassino, Quaker...

My husband and I stopped at this Holiday Inn on 1 October 2016 on our way to Wyoming. We asked if we could park our truck and trailer out front, as we have done at several other Holiday Inns, but were told specifically by the desk clerk to park at the other end of the hotel which was on the...

Bed was comfortable, room clean. I did love the huge shower, not a tub/shower combination. Breakfast was good and the staff kept it clean and well stocked during the morning rush. The only thing I didn't like is that you could hear everything happening in the hallway and when you were in the hall, you could hear in other rooms....

We decided to extend our trip by a day and use our rewards points but the Holiday Inn in downtown Omaha which we were staying at was full so we switched to this one. Wow what a dofference.

Well groomed and maintained hotel near restaurants, entertainment, and two major highways. Safe and well lit for walking to and from places. Only drawback is that they don't allow pets. Plenty of walking opportunities and safe for pet walkers, too. Too bad we can't stop when traveling with our dog.

We stayed three nights over labor Day weekend and this location worked very well for us. It was near downtown Omaha and the zoo. Room had a small refrigerator and a safe. Pool itself was small but the area around it was big. My girls only used once during that busy weekend because it was busy with a lot of...

First I want to say thanks to the staff who gave us a free upgrade. It was an awesome way to enjoy a getaway weekend celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.

Just needed a stop for the night. Clean and comfortable. Walls were a little thin. Could hear people walking above us and talking next door. Thankfully, everyone retired early.' No outside noise, I would ask for an odd number room. Bathrooms were a very nice size. Breakfast was very good! I believe our room had a safe and a tiny...
