Positive Reviews

Close to the casinos.

Guests rate the convenient location of the hotel, which puts you within easy reach of the interstate and the casinos, as well as Omaha, just across the state border in Nebraska. Whether you're here for work or play, it's easy to get around the area, and there's plenty to do.

Satisfying breakfast.

The hot, American-style breakfast is a winner with guests - and it sure makes a change from standard continental fare. Whether you want a stack of waffles or some fresh fruit to start the day, you'll find it among the buffet selection here, along with plenty of hot coffee.

Pool and fitness facilities.

Guests enjoy the hotel's indoor pool and fitness facilities, and if you like to keep up your exercise routine while traveling, it's a great bonus. If you've got the kids with you, they'll love splashing around in the pool too.

Negative Reviews

Worn bedding.

Some guests have reported that the bedding is old and not in the best condition, and that other areas of the room could use some refurbishing too. If you have major issues, it's worth requesting a room change, but overall, this hotel could use a bit of TLC.

Booking problems.

Numerous guests have encountered issues with room reservations, particularly when booking through third-party websites. It's not great to arrive and find the room you requested has been given to someone else, or you've got a smoking room when you wanted non-smoking, so it's worth double-checking with the hotel in advance.

Musty smells.

Some of the rooms and corridors suffer from musty or smoky smells, according to guests, so you may find this an issue. The cleaning products used to try and get rid of the smells seem to be pretty pungent too, so it could use a good airing out.
