Magnolia Hotel Omaha

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a classic hotel with somewhat dated butconfirtable accommodations. Thebes and bath facilities were good and the closet space quite adequate. It was easy to get around this somewhat smaller hotel. The location was reasonably convenient to major sites and shopping.

Beautique hotels have a point to prove, I guess. When done well with extraordinary thought, they can prove a delight. When thought falls short, a guest might be forgiven for wondering, "What are they thinking?" The windows are filthy. There is no note paper or writing tool. There is no drinking glass or soap dish in the bath. Hell, there is no bath soap in the bath. The tub fixtures may last the duration of my stay -- or not. Why is an ask for check-out later than eleven o'clock answered with, "No. No. A thousand times, no. And don't ask again." Oh, and the complimentary soggy bacon, sausage and egg breakfast shown on the web site? "We stopped that more than a year ago. The soggy buffet breakfast is now added to your room tab." We think Magnolia falls short. We won't be back.

Had a great stay over the fourth of July. Liked the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very professional.

We stayed 12 days for CWS in Executive suite and felt part of the family by the time we left. Room was a two story suite with bedroom/bath upstairs and living room bar area down. Excellent staff, great space and wonderful stay

The only positive part of the experience were the hotel staff who were friendly and informative. The thermostat in our room wouldn't work and we had an used towel in our room. Since we had a tight schedule visiting places, we knew our time in the hotel would be very minimal so we made a conscious choice not to complain. Noise travels easily into the room.

The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast includes hot dishes as well as continental. The location is great. It is close to good restaurants and bars as well as parks and good walking areas. An easy drive to the zoo and botanical gardens.

What a fantastic place to celebrate a special occasion! This hotel has old world charm with modern conveniences. Loved the free shuttle to the Old Market area, the cookies and milk every night, and the delicious breakfasts. There is not a fridge in the room and the wireless internet did not work well.

While we enjoyed our stay, here are a few suggestions for the hotel to make it a 5 star experience: -free parking -fresher breakfast (cold eggs are not appealing) -warm cookies (we went each night at 8:00 and the cookies were not freshly baked) -an ice maker on each floor

Unfriendly front females stuff. ( Exept the Chinese gentleman ). No shuttle available when called at midnight from the airport.

Very average hotel. Needs attention to overall cleanliness of the hotel. Carpet in the hall is stained. Paint needs touching up. Average workout facility. Staff at the front desk have an attitude that it truly is just a job. Mattresses and pillows are horrible. Bathroom door doesn't completely close. Susie is a great waitress in the bar. She was the best part of our stay friendly and helpful. She made sure we were satisfied with our drinks. I will be there again in 1 month for a conference, I wish I was looking forward to going back there.

Loved it! Super clean, very friendly, loved it! Couldn't recommend another hotel more.

Lovely hotel! The staff was so pleasant. My kids (teenagers) enjoyed the milk and cookies and the breakfast was awesome. Nice location too!

The people at the hotel do a lot of nice things for you--free shuttle service, free wine in the evening, milk and cookies, etc. I do wish their computers were free, however, or free for the first 10 minutes or so.

I stayed here when I went to visit my son who works at Union Pacific downtown. The hotel is very welcoming, great price and excellent location. Loved the historic building and modern upgrades along with the lobby, and reception area with breakfast

Could be better if I can open the windows and let fresh air in.

I only stayed for one night, but it was a nice hotel and well priced. I would definitely stay here again.

I'm moving to Nebraska and stayed at this hotel while looking for an apartment. It completely surpassed my expectations. Such a beautiful building in a historic area.

Fun place to stay. Just beautiful old historic building remodled into a elegant place to stay. Good food in the lounge. Close and affordable option to stay near old marketplace. Wish I could've stayed longer!

Nice stay, nice staff, nothing extraordinary, but delivered as advertised.
