Recent guest reviews

We were traveling across country and were delayed by a horrible accident. I tried to cancel our reservations but where told it was to late. We drove for almost 24 hours strait to finally make it to the hotel at 5am.... Yes 5am. Then had to wait 30 minutes while they "found" our reservation. Finally dropped in bed after a quick change and AC turned on. 3 hours later we wake up sweating badly. The AC in the room did not work. When I complained to the front desk as we were checking out at 10:30 am the young ladies response was that the night shift girl was new and we should have asked for a new room. Yes just what I want to do after 3 hours of sleep, move all my stuff to another room hoping to get another hour of sleep. I will never visit this hotel again and suggest others pass it up as well. They need better staff and training on manners!

The room appeared to have not been cleaned since the last guest the bed was unmade and stuff on the floor we went down and ask the staff for a different room they did not have one so we got clean sheets and remade the bed

Stay here for a quick rest stop across America. The beds were nice. I was not happy with the wires dangling in our room from the wall. The door locks have some issues that need work.

This hotel had a great price and nice rooms. They were remodeling when I was there so I bet it will be really nice soon.

Hotel is old, run down, and in a noisy location. Breakfast was very basic and breakfast area always freezing. Breakfast staff reluctant to assist. Even though 4 people were booked for the room, only 2 thin, small towels were given. Beds were hard and uncomfortable with lumpy pillows. Air conditioner wouldn't stay on-cycled on and off throughout night and was super loud. It wouldn't come on until the room was stifling, stay on till it was freezing, and wake you out of a dead sleep. The walls are extremely thin and you could hear everything from rooms nearby and hallway. Dead bolts on rooms were difficult to figure out and people were banging them all the time trying to get the door closed. Although we had a non-smoking room, it was strong enough in our room to make our throats sore-coming through vents/under door. Hallways smelled strongly of smoke and pot. Hotel is located right next to interstate and train tracks, so the noise was considerable. Even though it was in the 80's, the pool was not open. Hallways were hot and stuffy.

There was an orange peel on my sink. They put me next door to a room that was getting renovated so it was noisy throughout the day. There were blood stains on one of the towels, and hair on my sheets. I had to ask for a new sheet just to lay over the old one because I was so tired I didn't want to wait for the front desk guy to figure out how to handle my situation.

We stayed here two years ago and it was good. The hotel has declined rapidly. Dirty carpets, walls needing paint, horrible mattresses and pillows and unhelpful staff. We reserved a room with a queen bed, nope, all they had was two twin bed rooms. I hope the owners bring back the quality to this property.

We stay at ABVI airport a lot. Still id expect after a crappy last stay, that some sort of compensation would be made. 30% off and still WAY too long to checkin and no other added amenities. Not impressed.

We were booked into a dirty room after waiting over an hour. Our next rooms lock didn't work. We were promised a free next night or refund. Neither happened. Staff was extremely unprofessional and lied to our faces.

Interior/hallways of the hotel were terrifying. Odd smells, strange people, loud noises, dark.. I did not feel safe at all during stay. Room was extremely clean however and staff was friendly.

Great value just as advertised. Very friendly man at the desk. Quick access to UNL.

I was traveling to Colorado and needed a place to lay my head for 8 hours. The staff was helpful and courteous. There were no bells and whistles at this hotel, but it was a good place to sleep and get up and go the next day.

The receptionist was kind and did a nice job. The room was clean.

Average cheap hotel, nice friendly staff. Had some issues with the reservation coming in in a timely manor, but staff fixed it.

Nothing fancy, but the room was clean, the wi-fi worked well and there was a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Plenty of hot water too. It's a little better that what I had expected.

You get what you pay for. Room was clean enough and overall comfortable.

We stayed in a fairly clean room with a shower (no bathtub), no Kleenex, no shampoo, no Decaf coffee, and no breakfast. The toilet had a power flush--yeah! We'd stay there again because of the low price.

Room was ok the smell was not, breakfast was all carb no protein not even eggs. Tv kept turning its self off really annoying. Good bathrooms thin walls could hear everything.

Great staff, where can you go at this price where someone will make waffles for you.

I was able to stay here to watch a track meet at the university without needing a rental car or taxi. Although the area is not optimal for pedestrians (few sidewalks), it was possible to walk from the airport to the hotel (about a mile) and then jog to the track (about 3 miles). The staff were very friendly and happy to help with directions. The neighborhood was not very scenic, but the convenience made it a great choice!
