“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We enjoy staying at Country Inn's because of their affordable suites -- so DH can watch tv in a separate room. Some have become a bit run-down. This one was a pleasant surprise and has a new look. They're undergoing lobby redecorating, which is a bit inconvenient, but not bad. I called ahead to reserve. At check-in we discovered the girl had given us the room for free. We admitted the error, but got a discount. They put us in a non-suite, but quickly corrected that error. Our room is very comfortable and clean. We love the bed and great pillows. With the lobby under remodeling, we carried breakfast back to our room. Adequate food and nice hot coffee and tea.

Room Tip: We like the extra room in our suite. The quiet is worth the little extra.

I've never been a big fan of the Country Inn & Suites but on a recent trip to Lincoln, I was stuck between a rock and a hard spot and stopped. The hotel was great! The lobby was warm and inviting, the exterior was well maintained with ample parking. Connie, the front desk clerk on duty was simply amazing. Probably one of the nicest and most helpful hotel employees I've ever met. If my business was located in Lincoln, I would have stolen her away and hired her for my own company. The rooms were spacious, well decorated and provided ample electrical outlets for all my appliances. The work desk was well thought out and actually functional. The bed was great. I slept without waking the entire night. And above all, the room was spotlessly clean. Even the carpets appeared to be new or recently shampooed. I can't think of many items that I would have changed about this stay at all and although I was reluctant to stay, I was also reluctant to check out when the time came.

When we go to Lincoln it is our favorite place to stay! Very comfortable, clean, large room with full kitchen, quiet, has laundry facility & work-out room. Staff friendly & close to shopping & restaurants - all for reasonable price. We stayed there in the past & would stay there again.

My wife and I checked into this slightly out of the way motel on 5 June 13. The exterior was well maintained and parking was easy. Check in was a breeze and the clerk was very friendly and offered to provide dining choices in the area. Our room was not too far from the elevator and it was furnished with a nice bed, desk, etc. The bathroom had a good supply of extra folded wash cloths and towels on the lower shelf below the sink. Our nights stay was very quiet. No doors slamming, no kids running thru the halls and even though this is a pet friendly motel, no dogs barking. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the dining area was very clean. The hotel was in the process of having their carpets cleaned in preparation to become a Comfort Inn on Monday the 10th of June. I only hope that it remains as good as it was for our trip. I'd stay here again if I ever travel thru Lincoln Nebraska. It was a very good experience.

Room Tip: Just ask for whatever you desire. The staff was very friendly.

Value is the key word here. Nice place to stay for $75 a night. Staff was very friendly.

We didn't use the pool but it looked to be in good working order.

Breakfast was very nice! This place is a winner!

We stayed here on our way to CO with our two dogs. Located close to interstate. Restaurants available within walking and driving distance. Room clean, bed comfortable. Hotel had welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. Plenty of room to walk dogs outside hotel. Could not hear noises from outside, but could hear doors shutting inside the hotel.

Based on good reviews and rates on Booking.com, we decide to stay here on our trip out west. I gave it five stars because everything I care about was great.....big room, nice furnished (recent update), good bed, good towels, plenty of hot water, quiet, near the interstate, nice help, clean, and a free *USATODAY". The was a fitness center and pool, which we did not use. The free breakfast was just ok.....waffles, eggs, sausage gravy over biscuits, but no meat, fruit, juice, etc......
