“Poor hotel”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

Rooms were big that's about the only positive. Desk people seemed as if we were bothering them. When I was in the bathroom you could smell cigarrete smoke coming through the vent. Bad carpet, felt sticky when walking on it barefoot.

Room Tip: Was told after I stayed there that it is the worst most unsafe part of the city

Reviewed 30 July 2012

This motel is so close to excellent but not quite above average. The first complaint is serious: the bedspread on one of the bed was stained and horribly off putting. All bedspreads should be replaced with duvet and duvet covers which can be easily and cheaply laundered regularly. Secondly, there was a musty, damp smell in the room but I think this could be addressed quite easily by opening the windows whilst the room is cleaned. Thirdly, the wifi is unreliable and unusable. They need to spend some money improving this as it is becoming increasingly important to travellers.

But there are some major reasons to pick this over other options in Fremont. Checkin and checkout is simple and quick. The rates are very reasonable. They seriously have the best breakfast buffet for miles. The rooms are all very clean (bedspread notwithstanding). The rooms are well equippped with plenty of coffee, hairdryer, iron & ironing board, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, facial soap and body soap. TV and pillows were great. Free coffee available in the evenings although no cookies this time!

A very pleasant stay, at a great price. The hotel appeared to be well maintained. The public areas and room I was in appeared to be recently renovated. Breakfast was more than adequate, with a wide variety of choices. Virginia, the breakfast hostess, made feel at home and welcomed. This hotel is conveniently located near the highway, but far enough away to not hear any noise. The property is next to a truck stop, but the truck stop is well-maintained. My room was close to where the trucks were parked, but there was no noise! The pool and sauna was nice and clean. Also, the 24 hour coffee in the lobby was an added plus. I would stay again with no reservations (no pun intended).

Rooms are clean and the staff is very helpful and with a Diner less than 30 feet away from the front door, with great food and reasonable prices. The room rates are the best that we could find on the internet. Will stay again.

I was impressed with this stay as it was a last minute change for myself and the several other hockey families traveling. I was really worried because it was a good price. I like the sliding bathroom door and was pleasantly surprised with the fridge & microwave. Bed was comfortable. Did find a cigarette butt on the floor and was a slight smell of cigarettes. Pool was cold. The check in lady was clearly annoyed that a group of kids would be staying there. Breakfast was nice. Would stay again.

Stayed there twice. Good rooms, service hard to assess as we didn't need anything special.THe lobby service was good. The breakfast area was well kept up.
The location is by a truck service area, but you don't notice any traffic because of that. I'd go back.

Checked in on a weeknight and was informed at check-in that both the pool and hot tub were closed for maintenance. Room contained frig and microwave but was otherwise minimally furnished. Room desk used what looked to be a straight backed dining chair. Wireless internet in room was unusable, wired internet was intermittent. The internet on the guest lobby computer was down as well. Bathroom was very small and utilized a sliding door.
Got in late and didn't look things over carefully enough but noticed the badly stained pillow & mattress when the sheet corner was pulled up in the morning. I'd suggest: 1. Mattress replacement 2. Mattress cleaning 3. Addition of stain-resistant pad that could be easily replaced. Management and housekeeping should have addressed this prior to continued room assignment. There were other housekeeping issues giving the overall impression that a thorough cleaning was in order especially the room perimeter.

Hotel is north of Omaha at the US30 interchange and was convenient to our route but the adjacent truck stop generated noise that was audible in our top floor room at the north end of the hotel. (See picture taken from north end of hall)
I stay at choice hotels regularly and expected much better especially from a property that advertises their gold rating.
Breakfast was standard but attendant was pleasant and helpful.
