“State fair weekend”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Rooms were very clean, pool was nice, good desk service. Air was on full cold to keep room around 75 and no free breakfast just overpriced breakfast and dinner buffets. They did offer coupons for the buffets but all you got was a free drink woopie!

Stayed August 2014, travelled with family

Stayed here as a halfway point for our trip home from Colorado. When doing a search for hotels that day, I noticed that the prices for hotels were unusually high. Upon further research, I realized it was the weekend of the Nebraska state fair. We got the last non smoking room at $150 per night. (usual rate seems to be around $95). Hotel was clean and front desk was friendly. Didn't visit the restaurant, but had a drink in the lounge around 9PM(they gave us a BOGO coupon) Hotel offered free wifi, but it was very poor and didn't work. Pleasant bartender and the bar was not crowded. Would stay there again, but probably not for $150 per night.

Room Tip: Wifi was very difficult to use--most of the time it didn't

Thank you for responding on Trip Advisor about your stay. We are a half way stop for so many tavelers, we are conveniently located at I-80 and Hwy 281, right off the Interstate. The night you stayed was very busy being the first weekend of the Nebraska State Fair. I was pleased you took advantage of our BOGO coupon in our lounge, a good way to end a night of traveling.
I hope you will come stay with us again.

The staff was very professional and helped with any issues that came up. The bar had full menu and the food was very good. This small place has a lot to offer for either a single traveler or a large family. Indoor pool and exercise room looked very well maintained.

I travel a lot for business. Sometimes Quality Inn is the only thing in the area. In this case there are several other choices and I will still always go back to this Quality Inn. Clean and comfortable, friendly, with a full restaurant. The pool and hot tub are great. The beds are comfy. Highly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to Trip Advisor. I was so please to read your review. We often hear the same words you wrote. We are a one stop hotel with a full service dining room, bar and grille, we get many compliments on our food. Our Pool and whirlpool are very inviting,we also have a fitness center. Many times we hear that our hotel is just not like
any ordinary Quality Inn.
I hope you will come stay with us when you are in our area.
Thank you again!

I'm also amazed at the good reviews. Really. It's rough around the edges on the outside but nicely polished inside. That's fine and all but the room quality was sub-par. We walked into a sauna of a room that had a smell of faint urine and sweat/dog. The smell got worse as the air was on. My travel companion thought that someone may well have urinated in the ac unit.

Nice place to stay. The room was clean and comfortable. It was very quiet so we had a good night's rest here. The buffet breakfast was good but wish there were more fruit choices and it would have been nice if it were free like other hotels but $2.99 is reasonable. We will stay here again if we are in the area.Easy access off the highway.

The price for this quality inn was a bit more than the others we stayed in but the location was good. Off/on the highway easily and quickly. Traveling with a dog so once again, good that this hotel/location allows pets. They have an onsite restaurant and lounge but we didn't eat there. Hotel was busy due to a trap shooting competition in town and the restaurant/lounge was busy so it must be decent. Given the location of the hotel, it is a bit of a haul (6-9 miles one way) to any other eating establishment so it makes sense to utilize the onsite property. I wasn't thrilled that there is a fee ($2.99/person) for a 'hot breakfast' when most other quality inns include breakfast for free. While we didn't partake in the breakfast, I did check it out and it looked well worth the nominal charge if one is interested. As for the (king bed) room: good bed, clean room. I would like to have had a window that opened, these did not and our AC unit was noisy and not great, even at full blast. This wasn't a deal-beaker though. Had it really bothered me, I would have requested a room change and I did not.
