Not recommended

The good news is they seem to be making improvements. However, they hadn't completed work on the shower. No control knob to turn on the water. They quickly fixed this after we called, but hot and cold were backwards. Carpet was filthy. Should have been shampooed or replaced. The easier chair was shabby even for an apartment with male college students. No in room coffee. They kept running out of coffee In the breakfast room.

not much of a place to stay

The furniture was very worn, the chair even was so worn out that the foam was showing. The fan in the bathroom made so much noise that you almost felt it shaking the room. The alarm clock was broke. Very poor maintenance in our room.

Cheap but tattered

Bedding tattered with holes in blankets. Old building could use some renovation. Convenient location but on a rundown block with vacant buildings and lots surrounding. Although we encountered no problems, next time we'll spend a little more to upgrade.

A room at a good location

The best thing about this hotel is the price. Being close to downtown and not breaking the bank makes this hotel a good choice!

just needed a room close to downtown

We were not expecting a lot from this motel, but it was close enough to the Old Market and cheap, so we decided to try it out. It's definitely not fancy but has a microwave and a fridge in the rooms and was clean. Don't plan on eating breakfast here.

Good stay near old downtown Omaha

Old motel decently maintained. Room was large enough, comfortable, nice T.V., with an o.k. breakfast offering. Close to old downtown Omaha. Easy to find, good parking available.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The Dunham Museum was great. Park anywhere in old downtown and the 12 small block business district is easily walked. Lots of interesting historic buildings. Variety of restaurants. The pedestrian bridge over the Missouri into Iowa was interesting. The flooding kept us from the Lewis & Clarki landing area and statue area.

It was so bad we didn't stay the night!!

We booked a non-smoking room and when we got there the clerk argued that we didn't. The room they gave us smelled awful and was filthy. We took picture as proof. He refused to refund our money since it was prepaid so we went somewhere else for the night. I turned down the bed and the sheets were stained and dirty. You couldn't have paid me to stay there.

Good room for a great rate

The Econo Lodge Downtown in Omaha, NE is a great place to stay if you are looking to be in the heart of the action without having to spend all of your money on the hotel. With the money I have saved on the three stays, we were able to eat out for every meal and visit the zoo (including taxi money!!) It was great to walk around and explore the immaculately clean downtown. Numerous resturants are in walking area.
