“Good location, great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

Had a great stay at this motel, the beds are just right, not to soft, not to hard. The room had a clean smell when we walked in. The past reviews some complained about the noise from other rooms, but it was quite on the Friday and Saturday night that we stayed. The staff were real friendly, and the morning breakfast was better than average.

Larissa, the front desk manager, bent over backwards to help me when I was in town for my dad's surgeries at the VA Medical Center. The location is perfect for anyone who needs to go to the VA, plus its practically on top of the zoo. Nothing is too far away. The rooms were clean, and the housekeeping staff friendly and helpful. I stayed at a fancier hotel for my first few nights on Omaha, and the $50 difference per night wasn't really worth it. There are a ton of kids on the weekend, so if you want peace and quiet, you may want to consider somewhere else. I really could not ask for mores for the price. I booked initially through Priceline, and the hotel matched the rate for the rest of my lengthy stay, which I thought was very kind, especially considering my circumstances. I would definitely be happy to stay here again. And once you figure your way around Omaha, it's really not far from anything.

This is a fabulous hotel if you are going to be at the zoo. It is basically a 2 minute drive across the street to the zoo (or baseball stadium). It is NOT a 5 star hotel but it serves perfectly for a place to stay for a quick trip to Omaha. It has a breakfast station (juice, coffee, waffles, cereal) and some vending machines for food. The rooms are fine - nothing special but it has what you need - nice bed, TV, bathroom, clean. The pool is indoor and fine - nothing special about it although it tends to be OVERLY chorlinated so it has a powerful chlorine odor and can sting your eyes somewhat. Rates are fine for the location and amenities.

Room Tip: The upper level seemed to have a faint smoke smell.

This is the best location if you are going to the Omaha Zoo. Also it's a good location to visit their Old Market district. We enjoyed the stay, but compared to other Comfort Inns, the rooms were a little tight, and the pool was tiny. The people don't watch the kids at the pool, and neither do their parents so they are down there without supervision and it was very concerning and unrelaxing. The food was good every morning and the help was very nice. I would stay again for the price, but the rating is for it just being "average".

We were traveling & needed a place to stay the night. We found this hotel to be clean & comfortable. I think we skipped the breakfast, but we often do, opting to have what we want for breskfast vs what the contractor provides. For what I require in an Inn, this one met my requirements. Friendly staff.

This hotel was run down in the rooms. The ceiling was gross. We had asked for rooms close to family but they were as far apart as could be. There were rowdy and rude guests that didn't watch their kids. The room was over priced. The only reason to stay is maybe the location near the zoo but I don't think it is worth it.

My wife and I needed a place to stopover for the night. Knowing it would be a late night check-in and an early out...decided upon Comfort Inn at the Zoo. This was perfect. Great location for ease of travel (interstate exits and downtown), the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent as well with hot and cold items. I'm sure that some periods could be loud with kids, but our stay was in the middle of the week so it was very quiet. There is a McDonald's, Jimmy Johns and a 24hr convenience store within walking distance. It appears that the hotel has recently been updated. One complaint would be that when we showed up to check-in, there was no attendant available for nearly 10 minutes. We just kind of hung out in the lobby wondering where anyone was. But we were a late check in )past 11:30 p.m. so no big deal for us.
