The hotel staff was nice and the breakfast was ok. The hallway carpet was excessively dirty. This hotel is good for business travelers but the breakfast is full of carbohydrates and could use some proteins like boiled eggs or a sausage gravy with biscuits.

Upon returning home from our 1 night stay at this hotel, in a non-smoking room, I had to wash all of our clothing and air out our luggage. Our hotel room smelled so badly of smoke that in the morning I couldn't wait to get out of there. The breakfast was so-so, not much of a selection. Based on the notes about the hotel, I thought it would be a lot closer to the airport than what it actually was. Hotel appeared to be clean (other than smoke smell), and staff was cordial.

This hotel was an exceptional value. I was pleased at the cleanliness and size of the room. It was also very quiet even though it was close to I-29. The staff was very helpful. I will stay there again!

This conveniently located motel is very good for those of us who need to drop in for a night and move on the next day. Close to the Omaha Airport, very reasonably priced, with a friendly and helpful staff and safe, comfortable rooms, this Days Inn had all the things I needed for the stay. For those interested in more entertainment, Harrah's Casino is only 3 blocks away. The breakfast room has only the basics, but the receptionist said they had just made plans to improve to more healthy dining selections instead of the ""white bread and sugared cereal"" fare. Overall, a good motel and a credit to the Days Inn chain

This hotel offered wireless internet service. The coffee maker was very dirty. They need to have more electric wall plug. The lid of the coffee maker was broken and inside of appliance was so dirty that I cleaned over 20 times, but still dirty particles were dripped out. I did not get to use it. The lighting system was not good that I turned all the light, but yet not bright enough.

Can't. The Days Inn was in a bad neighbor hood. Appears it used to be a Microtel Inn. It was under renovation, plus I wouldn't stay there again because of the surrounding area.

Included coffee in room. Bed too soft, fan smelled like vinegar, staff impolite and resentful, too noisy, 1.5 inch crack under door, seedy, tub stained. The hotel was nice enough on the outside, but in a location that was questionable for safety. Staff was physically ill and resentful and impolite. Bed was horrible - did not sleep. Too noisy. Tried to run fan, but it smelled bad. Should have been rated a level 1. I paid too much. Should have offered $35 for this hotel. All it was worth! There was a 1.5 inch crack under the door. I had to lay towels down to cover it. Poor construction. Tub was stained ad decor looked dirty. Could feel vibrations from guests in hallway. This was the cheapest of cheap hotels. Not a good value.

The location was ok. It smelled gross, it was dirty, and the workers were rude! My husband arrived first and checked in and then proceeded to the airport to pick me up. My first impression was good. The lobby was small and looked ok. But this hotel was gross smelling and dirty. When I got to the room it was stinky and the beds were dirty. When I complained, the front desk clerk said it had been over 1/2 hour and there was nothing they could do since it was a full house! We barely slept since the pillows were stinky and the whole room just felt dirty.

Decent bed, hair dryer, shampoo, amenities good Continental breakfast sparse, put us in smoking room. The motel automatically put us in a smoking room. We've had to ask them to switch us, which they have done. It's just baffling to us.

Nice facility with friendly, helpful staff. Small motel, a little noisy and monotonous breakfast. The staff is helpful with a good attitude but you need a low price to make this an attractive situation. No lobby, pool or restaurants within 200 yards but close to the freeway.

Close to casinos. The loud noise from the doors being closed. Although the staff is friendly, the location of the hotel isn't in the prettiest of town. The box springs were so dirty and stained. The mornings were noisy since the glass doors do not shut quietly when other travelers exit or enter.

Absolutely nothing. It was a dump, worn out beds, gross colors. Avoid this hotel if at all possible. It is in dire need of a complete remodel. The beds were old and sagged, the decor was at least 12 years old. But it has one of those new curved shower rods and wireless internet, so that makes it all good... NOT!

The beds were REALLY comfortable. As we were leaving at 11 AM which is checkout time the front desk called and were rather rude about telling us it was time to leave. I liked everything about it. It met all my expectations. The good experience was "slightly" marred by the snooty front desk clerk calling us at 11:00 AM on the dot to say it was time to leave. She could have atleast waited until we were late as we were on our way out the door when she called.

It was convenient to get to the Omaha, NE airport. Wasn't worth the cost. My children were disappointed right away that this hotel did not have a pool. It also did not have an elevator. They gave me a room on the second floor and when I requested a first floor room, they did change our room to accommodate. The steps going up to the second floor were surrounded by concrete walls and when other travelers were dragging their bags down the stairs, it woke us up with loud banging. When the doors to the other rooms in the hallway shut, they also banged very loudly and woke us up. I also refused to give them my credit card because I had prepaid and I didn't want them to get an imprint on my card. This caused quite a bit of anxiety, but in the end, she agreed that she did not need it. The free breakfast that they advertised was not impressive either and only consisted of cereal and some bread for toast. We skipped that and ended up at a fast food restaurant instead. Overall, it was very convenient to get to the Omaha, NE airport, but don't expect much or to get a lot of sleep. I also don't feel like I got the value for the money that I had spent.

Convenient to Rosenblatt stadium. Not much of a selection at the breakfast bar. I liked the place. I was not looking for a 5 star hotel. Just wanted some place to lay my head and get a shower and this Days Inn gave me that. Clean, quiet, and convenient for me. The Breakfast bar selections were minimal. All they had was bread, English muffins, 2 kinds of cereal, 2 juices, and coffee. Would have like a piece of fruit or yogurt or something more than what was out there.

Helpful staff. Smoke smell in hotel and room. This is OK for the business traveler or folks who want to be close to the casinos but not for the children. The swimming pool is off premises at the local YMCA, you have to drive 5 minutes to get there. Not really convenient when you are on vacation. This should be spelled out more clearly to your guest so they they can make a more informed choice.

Location was easy to drive too, but a little noisy with I29 traffic. Lower class hotel, a 1 star probably better describes. For the price it was alright, but wouldn't rate it a two star. Rooms were clean, but the sheets etc. were getting a little thread bare. OK if you're needing a quick sleep and nothing else.

I like the bullet holes in the wall that been repaired badly & the dirty carpet. Cheap dirty all doors are lock have to go through the front. If this is what you sell as great I¿ll go to another booking site. What I like the best is this was to be a half off price room.

Friendly, helpful staff, close to Casino and Hwy., a restaurant and convenience store next door, clean rooms, 4 pillows on beds. No fridge or microwave in room. This motel is just a few steps away from a restaurant and convenience store. Also, Harrah's Casino was just a couple of blocks away. Conveniently located by two major highways. Just a hop, skip and a jump across the river to Omaha. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Motel is a little older, but the rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and you get 4 pillows on each bed!

The bar next door uses all the parking and it is not in a very good part of town. The hotel rooms were nice and clean. However, they had not cleaned off all of the side walks or driveway and there was approximately 3/4 inch of ice on most of the them. We came back to the hotel after 10 pm and the bar next door used all of the parking. I drove around until the bar closed because your vehicle would not be safe anywhere else in the neighborhood. You can only use one door to enter, my guess is this is due to the neighborhood, and if you are on the far end of the hotel its a long way to haul your luggage.
