The university-themed property was a refreshing change for a hotel stay. The adjoining bar offers a happy hour from 4:30-6:00 with complementary local beers and wines plus 50% discount on their appetizers. The service in the bar as well as by the hotel staff was excellent. Everything was clean and well maintained. The location of this hotel is right in the middle of the action of the Haymarket and downtown Lincoln.

It’s a very basic hotel but clean and everything is in good shape - nothing is broken or has holes. The beds are great. We only stayed overnight so didn’t need a lot of amenities.
