The service was horrible. We asked for extra pillows they said they didn't have any. The power went out because there was a storm. It was the year we had the dericho, and we asked for our money back because we just wanted to go home, and they refused to give us our money back.

We stayed 2 nights and while we were out we asked for no housekeeping, they said with covid noone would enter the room. Ehen we returned, all the wash clothes and the used towels were gone. So someone entered our room. I didnt say anything to the staff because it was late and we had 2 children under 3 that were asleep.

This hotel was right off of interstate 80 and close to Adventureland and prarie Meadows race track and casino, there are many hotels and restaurants in the area, for a guys trip, a place to lay your head and get clean shower in the morning, rooms are clean and check in was easy. Will stay here again for guys trip, nothing special, but has all you need, has vending machine with snacks and drinks and some things you may have forgotten to bring in lobby. And there is a outlet mall within a mile from the hotel as well
