Nice basic stay

Old hotel. They still use keys for the rooms. Clean rooms. Free hot dogs and cookies in the afternoon and a basic breakfast in the morning.

Staff was unfriendly

As a young family with 3 children I felt very disrespected when I checked into this hotel. I reserved the room for myself, my husband, and 2 children because we were in town for a funeral and 1 or 2 of my kids wanted to stay with their aunt and cousins. When we walked through the front door with our belongings the front desk lady yelled at me because I had more children then I said... She could have at least ASKED if I had made a mistake in my reservation. She was VERY rude and I will never stay there again while in town.

Christmas Eve

My husband and I stayed in this hotel on Christmas Eve in order to visit family in the area. The staff was very nice, as always, and we really appreciate that they always have fresh chocolate chip cookies, hot dogs, and occasionally extra snacks (this time it was chicken teriyaki). The value for the price is unbeatable. The only reason I gave only three stars on the cleanliness is due to the fact that there was some sort of stickiness on the carpet in the room (appeared to be like an old piece of gum? Not sure). We have stayed here before and would stay there again.

Western Inn - loved my stay

Clean room, comfortable beds, awesome warm staff. What else could I have asked for after a long long drive across Nebraska from Mid-Colorado on a super windy day. I would stay @ Western Inn again for sure.

Awesome Value

I travel a lot for business. All I expect from a hotel is a bed and a place to shower. I chose this hotel for the location and price (cheap). I got very pleasant service, a nice room, comfortable pillows, and a hot breakfast. super good suprise.

Welcoming atmosphere

When we arrived there were cookies, pretzels, tootsie rolls and hot dogs waiting for us - free. The staff was VERY friendly. The hotel had been recently remodeled. The beds were not pillow top but comfortable. The hotel had many neat things like 'take a book, leave a book' and a list of the local churches. It was an EXCELLENT deal.

Friendly Staff Good Breakfast

Stayed here for one night and found the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast good with oatmeal, biscuits, fruit and juice. Liked the fact that breakfast is available early (5:30) for an early start. Room was average and clean. No problems but has a bit of age.

Great hotel at a great price

My husband and I chose to stay at Western Inn based on the location, price, and overall good reviews. We were not disappointed! The staff was very warm and welcoming, and the chocolate chip cookies they provided free to the guests were delicious. They also had complimentary hot dogs set out for guests as well. The rooms were very clean, good sized, private and quiet. I liked that the room had two sinks (one in the bathroom, and one outside the bathroom), and I also enjoyed the continental breakfast in the morning. The one area in which my husband and I were slightly dissatisfied were the beds; the mattresses were a little uncomfortable, and the sheets were paper thin. That being said, we slept well, we just felt a little stiff in the morning. Overall, I would say that we were very pleased with the hotel, and we will definitely stay at Western Inn again the next time we are in town.
