Staff was excellent. Very engaging. Room was nice and quiet. Be sure to stay for breakfast. It was all homemade. Best hotel breakfast I've had. But don't leave your pheasant in the refrigerator (lol).

I enjoyed my stay here. Our room was clean, large, and comfortable, and the breakfast was friendly and filling (and free). I really appreciated having an affordable and welcoming place to stay on our drive across the country.

We were on our annual trek to High Plains Homestead in NW Nebraska and stayed the night on the way. They were friendly and helpful. The rooms were quaint and absolutely spotless. They have a full course breakfast serves in the morning!
