"Horrible!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Upon arrival to one of the three rooms to find a cup with trash in it laying in one of the beds. Switched rooms to only screw up our rooming arrangements with five kids. Leaving our 19 year old son sleeping with his parents due to not having a rollaway bed in one of the queen bed rooms as promised! Get back to our room later in the evening, ready for bed to have the ceiling leaking and dripping on the floor. Hard to sleep with a dripping noise!

I was there over a week and not once did a maid come to my room. Had to get my own towels, soap, etc. Dropped off my own trash. A little inconvenient. Breakfast was very good except for sausage almost every day. Lady serving breakfast very nice.

"Best Room We've Ever Had."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We always stay here before catching a flight out of Omaha. I had reserved two adjoining rooms with two Queen beds in each, not far from the elevator (Had polio and sometimes have trouble walking long distances) for my husband and myself with my daughter and her two young children in the other room. My daughter, a teacher in Lincoln, NE, had to work that day, so wouldn't get there until 8 PM and since we had planned on having adjoining rooms, we were to pick up her children from school, get a suitcase with their PJ's and toiletries in it from their house and continue to the hotel and check in. After eating dinner and With the adjoining rooms, the plan was to have the kids bathed and ready for bed when she arrived, so they could get their sleep before our early flight the next morning. Well, somehow one of our adjoining rooms was given to someone else and they only had one other room with two Queen beds down the hall. Well, that wasn't going to work. The lady helping me at the front desk was looking at all the reservations for that night and I could tell my husband's patience was wearing thin, plus the kids were getting excited to go see their room. She ended up giving my husband and myself a lovely room with a huge new looking shower with two Queen beds and TV. adjoining a living room with a mini kitchen, a large round table and chairs, sofa (that made into a bed), two nice sitting chairs and a large TV. which then adjoined my daughter's room with two Queen beds, TV and your normal Bathroom. WHAT A NICE SURPRISE and at no extra charge! Plus everything was exceptionally clean. We actually had three rooms in total. Another plus was that our view was of the river (not a parking lot). WOW. will my daughter be surprised when she arrives. My sister and her family stayed at Ameristar and she called and wanted to come and visit about our plans for the next day. They were shocked and jealous that we had gotten such a wonderful room. When we left earlier to go grab a dinner somewhere close, I thanked the lady that helped me and gave us such a great room. I was glad they had given away our old room, this was the best room I've ever had in any of the hotels we've stayed in, which are many. Everything was perfect. the breakfast the next morning and also the shuttle ride to the airport. The staff went above and beyond our expectations with exceptional customer service. I wish I would have written the lady's name down that helped us. she was great! I've always liked this hotel, but now it's my favorite!

Shuttle service to the concert was very nice, but they seem to have an infestation of gnats. Two couples two rooms both had tons of gnats. And the toilet didn't flush in one of the rooms, had to take the tank lid off to get it to fill with water so it would flush, gross.

"Very Disappointed"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We stay here every year and this is by far our worst experience. I don't know if the window pain was broke but our room was 2nd floor on the front of the building and was very loud, we could hear cars drive by and people talking outside down in the parking lot. The room had the shared door between ours and another room and the neighboring people should have just stayed in our room. We heard every word, the shower and the nonstop coughing. At about 3AM there was some very loud screeching noise that started that sounded like an alarm, it randomly stopped after about a minute and we still have no idea what it was, but it was very loud and obnoxious. And when the rest of this wasnt keeping us awake, the toilet would start making weird noises. A night away from the kids was not relaxing at all! The beds are nice and everything seemed clean.
