    Just want to thank Lisa and Junior for thier Best Western Hospitality. Thank you for the breakfast conversation and wanting to make sure we were enjoying your top notch services. Junior thank you for taking time out to speak individually to my grandson offering him your help. The service at Best Western Plus in York Nebraska never lets me down!

    We stopped here after several hours of driving. We were greeted and checked in by friendly and helpful staff. The price was very reasonable. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. There were several restaurants nearby for dinner. I would stay here again.

    « Best Best Western I have ever stayed at »

    I have stayed a lot in BW motels personally and thru work and this is the Beast BW I have ever stayed in, it was clean the staff friendly and helpful. And a really nice suite room. We come to Grand Island at least 2 times a year to visit our granddaughter and have always stayed at the Hampton. But will probably start staying here.

    « The BEST stay in Grand Island »

    A most pleasant and restful overnight stay. Hotel is a short distance away from the highway. A great steak house a few blocks away added to our night's stay. Anne, at the Front desk, was most welcoming after our long day's drive. Highly recommend this hotel.

    « Very nice room, if you are deaf »

    When we got to the motel, we were upgraded to a suite. It was large and spacious, well equipped. We enjoyed it until time for bed. The heat/cooling unit is next to the bed, and it roared all night (off and on). The hurricane out of the vents blew the curtains. No speed control on the fan. What a way to spoil a remarkably attractive suite!!!

    « Grand Time In Grand Island BW »

    After a long day of travel battling winter snow it was so comforting to find a great stop like this. The desk clerk was very very nice and the rooms were big and clean. Breakfast was served by 6:00 AM so we could get an early start on our long ride back to Minnesota. Local restaurants as pointed out by the desk clerk held true to her billing. Great stay with very comfortable beds with nice hot showers.

    Super easy check in with friendly staff. Room was clean with the exception of a French fry under edge of bed. Plenty to eat in the morning, starting at 5:30 which was great for us! Few places have breakfast ready that early.

    « A late Christmas gathering in Grand Island »

    We checked in for a two night stay on 12/29/17 to have a late Christmas celebration with family in Grand Island. We were greeted by a very friendly and super helpful woman at the front desk. The lobby is bright and the fireplace was so inviting especially with sub zero temps outside. Our room was clean and spacious and having a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker was a nice convenience. The hot breakfast was really good and substantial. The hot tub and pool area was clean. My only negative comment is that the shuttle van was always outside the front door of the hotel so it was always in the way to walk out to your car or to pull multiple cars up to the door. Seems to me it could be parked away from the building when it's not in use.

    « Clean rooms, reasonably priced »

    Stayed a single night with family. Room was clean, staff was very friendly and rate was reasonable, around $95 after all taxes/fees. I made a mistake when I booked online and they were very quick and pleasant in fixing it (I booked for Friday instead of Saturday). Not a single problem.

    « Transportation »

    Although my post has nothing to do directly with the hotel it does make me wonder about the quality of some of the staff. On the morning of 12-28-17. I pulled into the grand island airport. I quickly got out of the car along with my son and proceeded to unload his TWO.... bags. In the lane next to me was a Best Western shuttle bus who rudely stated I can not park there. by the time he said this my son was already unloaded and out of the way. I said Ill be one minute. I was letting my daughter out of the back and my wife was getting out of the front. luckily for my daughter she got back in the car but my wife and my door was almost taken off by this inconsiderate jerk who must have been late for his morning roll and coffee. I of course yelled at him. He then proceeded to stop in front of us and burned his tires throwing snow all over my wife and I. I made three phone calls to the hotel and the manager obviously found it not important enough to call me back. Lack of any response tells me all I need to know about the management and your bus driver. Then to see another post on here from one week ago about the shuttle driver / Maintenance guy. He must be a real peach. Next time mister maintenance guy. I wont be making a phone call. I'll come find you and then we will talk.

    « A good place to stay »

    Will stay here again. Close to eating places and for refuelling. Not too far off the Interstate but the 12 miles could be a deterrent to some people. I don't like surveys and only started this because we liked the hotel so much.

    « Sad »

    When I arrived late in the evening I was greeted by a shuttle driver who wouldn't help me with my baggage into or out of the shuttle. When we arrived at the hotel. The hotel desk folks were unfriendly, not rude but brusque and Kurt. I went to my room and found it clean and in order. however the toilet ran all night. I? went down in the morning to tell the people at the desk about the toilet running all night. There were two people working at the desk and they were consumed with casual conversation and as I waited more than five minutes for them to recognize me, I finally decided the cost of the running toilet was not my problem and I turned and went back to my room. The shining part of this experience was that housekeeping was friendly, courteous and with a ready smile. I asked her a question and she helped me immediately. I wish I had asked her name. They lose 1 point on the baggage, 1 point for the check in and 1 point for the following morning. Keep 1 point for the room and 1 point for the excellent housekeeping. Make it 2 points for housekeeping!

    « Very Nice! »

    We stayed here this summer just before the eclipse. They were full, but they were very nice, kind and friendly! The hotel was very clean and fresh. The thing that we enjoyed most was that the beds were not on adjoining walls, this meant you could hear the people next to you. It also made for a quiet night's sleep and you could lay in bed and look out the window in the morning.

    « Easy Stop-over »

    Driving through Nebraska on a very windy evening we needed to get off the road to escape the semis. Fortunately we were near enough to Grand Island and knew there was a Best Western there. We really have come to enjoy the BW experience, and this was no different. I particularly enjoy finding places with a fitness center that allows me to unwind from a long day of driving. Keep it up!

    Great room. Very nice hot tub and pool! The front desk personnel were great, helped post my member number for our stay as I forgot it. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was in a nice room, the food typical of most hotels but hot and fresh.

    This seems to be a fairly new property and was very nice and the staff was very friendly. The room we had was very comfortable and clean. The hotel was also in a good location as it was in with easy access to most things to do in Grand Island. A great place to stay.

    « Nice place »

    Stayed for a couple of nights while on business in Grand Island. This hotel is nice, and the staff was very accomodating. The facility had a little wear-bed was a little worn and key fans sticking. However; the staff was very friendly and the place was clean.

    « Good welcome but pretty average otherwise »

    The best part of this hotel was the friendly receptionist, who helpfully suggested that I use my Reward Points for the stay, which I was quite surprised about as my experience elsewhere is that hotels are not keen on Points being used. But I had quite a few issues with my stay, which I would not expect from a hotel with the Plus designation. The lighting in my room was very poor and the fridge did not work properly. The breakfast was distinctly average, with the hot items being lukewarm and there were no bagels or oatmeal. The only restaurant I found nearby was a very poor quality Dennys, though it may be that there were others that I missed ? the absence of a hotel guide or telephone directory in my room made it hard to research what might be available.

    3
    « not worth the money »

    Too much febreze or spray was used to cover smells. Large room but not worth the money. Too far away from interstate and breakfast had cheap items. You can do better elsewhere even though we got a break from the regular price.

    « BEST NIGHT OF SLEEP IN A HOTEL IN AGES!!! »

    Our family of 5 loved this hotel! Beds and pillows were comfortable! We all got an excellent night sleep! Excellent Breakfast!!! Wonderful staff! I give this a 10 PLUS! We were there to attend AKSARBEN livestock show and this hotel was within 5 minutes of the fairgrounds! I would recommend this hotel to anyone attending an event at Fonner Park in Grand Island, NE.

    « The place to stay in Grand Island »

    Great room, great front desk staff. The address listed on their web page is bogus, and my GPS didn't recognize it - call the front desk for the real address. It is handy to the interstate and a good place to choose for an overnight stop.

    « grand hotel is a grand city »

    This hotel is located near some great restaurants, within walking distance. The desk clerk was very helpful, the business center was very private, and the room was exceptional clean. The coffee with breakfast the next morning was wonderful. The breakfast had a great selection of hot food including pancakes. This hotel is not far from the Stuhr Museum.

    « Friendly walk in stay »

    My wife and I were on the road driving through Nebraska and stopped in Grand Island, Nebraska looking for a room for the night. We walked in the door at the Best Western Plus and the woman behind the counter immediately said "hello!" We asked if she had a room for us and she gave us the best rate she had for an old man with a Best Western rewards number. She was very welcoming and quickly gave us a recommendation for a place for dinner. The room was spacious and clean. The room included a breakfast buffet. The food was fresh and plentiful. There were scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy, bacon, sausage, hash browns, pancakes, cereal, muffins yogart and sweetrolls. All the food tasted fresh. The rooms quiet and comfortable.

    « Clean and friendly »

    Could not ask for a better place to stay. The room and hotel were very nice, clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. The price was a bit high but it was because we chose a King suite here rather than staying someplace else.

    « Nice Hotel, clean rooms »

    Was very happy to stay at this hotel. We were in town for the annual Nebraska Junk Jaunt and stayed for 3 nights. The room was clean as was the check in area and the breakfast area. The food for breakfast was ok, would have liked to have seen more selection of portable fresh fruit (apples, oranges) only one day had bananas. The clerk at the check in desk (forgot to get her name) was great, very pleasant and when we asked for a recommendation for a place to eat (non-chain restaurant) she sent us down the street to a place that had some of the best fried chicken. The only downside to our stay was the beds. I know that it is probably difficult to replace mattresses often, but the bed was kind of saggy in the middle, which caused some discomfort, but not enough to make me not want to stay here again. Will definitely stay here again next year.

    Easy to get to from the HIghway. Near all of the Museums and points of Interest to me. Close to Downtown. Quite and nicely appointed rooms. Good Breakfast. TV News and Newspapers available. Mattress was great, but the smaller, pillows were okay, and at least soft and not 'over-firm' Hotel was in a quiet, safe, well-landscaped area.

    « Nice Hotel - Really Super People »

    The staff at this hotel are very warm and welcoming. I was extremely pleased at the prices charged during the Eclipse event as they absolutely did not try to take advantage of the fact that many people wanted rooms. I can't say how much I appreciated this. The public area was open and inviting and the business center was private. I was impressed by the iced coffee machine that is available throughout the day - vanilla and mocha! I loved the mocha. This machine its located in the dining room. Our room had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. One detractor - the room wasn't quite ready for us as a pen was left on the easy chair in plain sight - I just picked it up and tossed it. Others everything was clean. The bed was on the softer side as it had a quilted pillow top and the mattress itself was starting to age. The linens were soft and I felt cozy. Older people with aging bones might find the bed uncomfortable. The bathroom was fine but don't put bubble bath in the water as the water is very hard and your bubbles won't work! Mineral salts would be a better bath additive here!! There was a microwave and refrigerator but the microwave was the old dial type and it was really difficult to time our popcorn - we burnt the first bag. Breakfast was fine with plenty of choices. Very accommodating and friendly staff. Finally, I did not appreciate all the guests who don't dry off after the pool before walking into the lobby and to the elevator. There seemed to be a fairly constant trail of water in front of the elevator caused from ?cavalier? guests (adults most of the time). The front desk staff were always willing to wipe things down but it I do wish guests would be more conscientious.

    « A welcoming place »

    This town hosts loads of hotels and motels. Choosing one is difficult. However we choose this one because it was an excellent price and I have a Best western loyalty card. We spoke with the lovely lady who checked us in and she recommended a place to eat when we enquired. Texas T's. Wow it did not disappoint. The best steak fillet we have ever tasted.

    « Very nice place »

    Because this hotel is located about 3 miles from the Interstate 80 freeway, you do not hear the freeway traffic noise which is really nice. And because I am a Best Western Platinum member, we received an upgrade to a suite which is super awesome because the suite is roomier and homely feeling. The beds were comfortable, not too soft and not too hard. We enjoyed our brief overnight stay. The breakfast room area wasn't large but it did offer tables and chairs and a decent breakfast like waffles, cereal, coffee, juices, but being on tight traveling schedule we could not sit down to enjoy the breakfast bar. I will definitely stay here again. This hotel accepts military discount and I appreciate that so very much. Thank you Grand Island BW hotel.

    « Heartland hotel with heart! »

    Maybe I'm biased but I LOVE Best Westerns. I have never had a bad experience staying at a Best Western and this is another one to add to the list. We were two of the thousands that swarmed the heartland for the August 21, 2017 eclipse. Having never been to Nebraska, we arrived several days before the event to explore the state and stayed for a few more days after. The hotel was easy to find driving in on I-80 with plenty of on site parking. The room was very clean with comfy beds and equipped with a coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. One thing my companion noticed and praised was the single use remote control for the TV. We did have some difficulty with the shower. The diverter valve was stuck somewhere in the middle between tub and shower...and then the shower head fell off! As soon as we reported the problem, the evening clerk came up to try and fix it and when she was unable, offered to move us to another room. We refused the offer of a different room when she assured us it would be fixed the next morning. (It was fixed by 10 a.m. the next day!) We didn't use the indoor swimming pool/Jacuzzi area or fitness/weight room but both were tidy and well maintained. Complimentary breakfast at the Best Westerns never disappoints me. They always have BACON. A variety of breads, muffins, cereals (both hot and cold), fresh fruit and yogurt are other choices if the biscuits and gravy,eggs, bacon, sausage and pancakes don't appeal to you.

    « Nice stop on the plains »

    We stopped in here for a night while cruising across NE. Great choice. The building looks relatively new or at least well maintained and the lobby is clean and updated. Front desk was great with greeting and offering restaurant choices in town. Room was large and clean. Response to request for extra pillows was prompt. Overall we thought this was a gem on the plains, everyone was nice, the building and rooms were clean. If in the area again, I would stay here again.

    I stayed here with my husband for one night travelling through the area. The bed was extremely comfortable and the staff friendly and attentive. If I could change one thing, it would be to have the flexibility to turn off the airconditioning. You could adjust it in your room, however, it was only the temperature - heat/cool and having the fan on automatic or always on. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I would stay here again if every I was in Grand Island.

    « Restful cross-country stop »

    This is a clean, quiet, new, and well-staffed hotel. It is a little drive off I-80, but worth it. Pam's Pub and Grub is a short walk away and a step back in time to a friendly, unpretentious, small restaurant with simple good and reasonably priced food, served promptly and with a smile. We will be on our way again before breakfast in the hotel is served...but I'm confident it would be good, because this place just makes you feel confident that things will be done right.

    « Group of rooms for Baseball »

    We did not get the correct rooms at check-in. Lady behind the desk (Bonnie) kept making up stories about the boys being loud. Parents checked on many occasions and nothing. Most of them were out fishing during their off time. You couldn't talk in the halls or she was yelling at the boys to be quiet or giving the parents a dirty look. She didn't want anyone in the lobby and asked us to move. What are the couches and TV for them?? It was like she had something against us. I seen other people yelling down the hall close to the front desk and she never said a word. I will take my reservations else where next time.

    « Colorado vacation return trip »

    We were traveling on a family vacationy and were returning from Colorado when we began looking for a place to stop for the night. This motel was very clean and the staff was very helpful. My wife was not feeling well and the staff immediately gave me an extra blanket for her. The following morning Stacy was working at the front desk. Stacy corrected some incorrect check in information so I could obtain Best Western Reward Points for our stay. After checking out and driving about 40 minutes, we realized we forgot my wife'said temperpedic pillow. My wife contacted the motel desk and spoke with Stacy and asked if they could send her pillow COD. Stacy told my wife they would send the pillow free of charge. My only complaint about this motel was it was located further off of the Interstate than we wanted, but considering the lack of motels on that stretch of I-80 it was not that big of a deal. I would definitely stay at this motel again if we were in the area.

Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable, the breakfast was very nice and customer service was outstanding!! This was our second stay at this Inn and Suites and I would highly recommend it.

    My family and I stayed here while traveling back to Colorado. Staff were very friendly and professional. The entire hotel was extremely clean. Beds were comfy...on the softer side but still very comfy. Breakfast was wonderful with fresh bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits/gravy and an assortment of cereals and pastries.

    « I would return to this hotel »

    This is the second time we've stayed here and if our travel needs take us back to Nebraska, we most certainly would stay here. The staff is great! Cindy was really helpful and accommodating with our schedule, she upgraded our room and got us into it a little early. She was great to work with. The breakfast is also a very nice way to start the day. The smell of real bacon greets you, the food choices are good and I especially liked the iced coffee machine! Never have seen that before. The breakfast area was kept clean. Room was also very clean and really comfy; no problems with the wi-fi. This is a very clean and comfortable and accommodating place to stay.

    « Why I stay at the GI BW+ »

    I was born in Nebraska, 25 miles East or Grand Island. For the past 3 years I have stayed at the BW+ GI during the Memorial Weekend. This is an annual event my brother and I have started. We go to the cemetery where are parents, sister, grandparents and great grandparents were laid to rest for the service that is held on Memorial Day. Staying at the GI BW+ is convenient and enjoyable.

    « A Grand Choice »

    I was on my way home and needed a place to stay. I had no reservation made because I didn't know where I would stop. I consulted "Lady Garmin" for up coming motels. Listed was this Best Western Plus Grand Island so there I went. I can honestly say this was one of the best motels I have stayed at in a long,long time. The building from the outside was impeccable. The grounds were well manicured. The lobby was spacious and nicely decored. The staff was friendly and courteous. I asked for and received a king room on the top floor. The room itself was spacious,clean, well appointed. The bathroom looked as though it was just remodeled. The towels seemed like they were brand new. Smooth and soft. The bed was perfect for me. What set this place above others in this price range was the breakfast. Real hot scrambled eggs,bacon,sausages that are not of the precooked variety,fried potatoes and all the other usual and customary thing that you expect to find. All and all a great stop.

    This place is always clean and welcoming. The beds are good for a hotel and it's clean and comfy. The hot tub is kept nice and hot and the staff are friendly and helpful. I love the rooms with the bed or two beds that also have the pull out couch. We don't need it but it sure does make the area feel so much more spacious and more homey. There is a restaurant about a block South of there called Pam's Pub and Grub. They have the best fried chicken and it's on an all you can eat buffet for about $10. Definitely a must go. During season, there is live horse racing at Fonner Park and the Stuhr Museum is just a few minutes away. The Case International Factory offers tours and there is an awesome trap shooting range 15 minutes away.

    I stayed at this motel during a business trip. It was a nice motel, and I stay at a lot of Best Westerns, along with some other chains. Breakfast was excellent.

    « New and updated! »

    I actually really liked this hotel mainly because it was a very new property. One thing I really liked was that when I arrived the hotel was not crowded at all. I decided to go to the pool/jacuzzi and sit in the jacuzzi and expected a lot of people to be there, but I had the whole jacuzzi and pool to myself at the time I arrived. The jacuzzi was an oversized one that would have been comfortable even if there had been a few other people. One thing I didn't like was the electronic room key. It kept malfunctioning on me. The breakfast, I thought, was very good. Also, the little toiletries in the room had a few extras that you normally don't get. My only other complaint would be that I asked for a wake-up call and they didn't do it. Maybe that's considered old fashioned now with all the smart phones? Anyway...

    « Disappointed after a stay of 2 nights 7 months ago »

    First of all I stayed here over 2 week nights in late March 2016 and didn't have the below problems. Internet: On a Android smartphone with google, google would not let the login page load because the login page is not secure. I have never had this problem before at any other hotel/motel. I had to clear the "Chrome" browser cache to get the login page to load. I'm sure there's millions of smartphones running Android with the default Chrome web browser. Breakfast: sign says "scrambled eggs" but there wasn't any. I was told by "staff" that they are not served on Sat & Sun, yet the room price for weekends is the same as weekdays. In their place were those cheap poor tasting premade "omelets" TV: The remote control "guide" button doesn't work. I was told this is because management removed all the little "boxes" behind all the room TV's. So the removal of the "box" does 2 things: "A" you can't see the tv guide listings AND "B" all the local channels are now in "SD" and not "HD". If this facility runs 50% full, then a $1/night increase would have covered all of the above. I don't have time for facility's that cut corners. Would rather see the room rate raised $1.00 to cover their costs & profits.

    « Looks nice but beware of paper-thin walls »

    Recently stayed here for two nights. On the surface, the place looks decent. No problem with booking the room and no problem at all with the billing or the front desk - they were all very nice. The room itself though - very average. The air conditioner worked well so that was a big plus. I liked that it had a refrigerator. Found a dirty sock under the sink ?? The biggest issue was the noise - I could hear word-for-word conversations in both rooms next to me. One guy was on his phone well after midnight and talking and laughing and on the other side of me, a young family with kids stayed there and were up and playing early. I know they weren't trying to be loud and were not yelling - so that means the walls have little to no noise abatement. Most hotels have much better sound proofing than this one so if noise bothers you, look elsewhere or take earplugs. Went to the pool and the pool temp was very cool (didn't even feel heated) and the hot tub was out of commission and had a bunch of sand in it. For the price of $153/night including tax, this was a disappointment. Have stayed in much nicer places for that amount per night.

    My husband and I embarked on road trip, driving to the East Coast from California and back over 3 weeks. This location was our third night on the trip. We book through AAA, which offers the most attractive room rates. The room rate included breakfast. This hotel was built in 2010 and is very new looking. The room had one King bed, chair with ottoman, desk big enough for two to share, 4 desk outlets, free WiFi, one luggage rack and one luggage table, roomy closet with iron/ironing board, spacious bathroom with granite countertop, refrigerator, microwave, 40" flat screen, very nice furnishings and double paned windows with triple layer curtains; blackout insulated, sheers and décor style. We were in a side facing room (which I actually hotel front), and were able to park our car under a light, in view from our window. The parking slots are large/wide. The lobby is open, light and welcoming with very nice decor. The bathroom had the full complement of toiletries, including shower gel, makeup remover towelette and enough white hotel towels for 4 people. Good water pressure in the shower, with a high shower head, good for tall guests, All bed linens were snowy white with comforter to match the drapery valance. Pleasant staff, wonderful breakfast in a nice room with a window view, fireplace, big screen TV, nice furnishings. Scrambled eggs, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, link and patty sausage and bacon. Watermelon chunks and fresh pineapple. A variety of cereals, yogurt. Breads and bagels to toast, muffins, 4 types cereal, yogurt, milk, juices. BONUS pancake machine and Ice Coffees, Mocha and Vanilla. Great hotel, better than average breakfast and a nice location, walking distance to restaurants. See my review for Pam's Pub and Grub

    « A Superior Place to Stay »

    I stay at Best Westerns a lot, so we looked this one up after deciding to stop in Grand Island on our drive across (half of the) country. One website says something about it being a "straightforward hotel" so I was a bit skeptical but it looks totally new from the outside. Inside, it's very nice. The woman at check-in (Bonnie) was super friendly and super efficient. My son and I got a mini-suite because I had a couple of hours of work to do before going to bed and he wasn't going to stay up that late. It was a really comfortable room with a big bathroom. They didn't have any problem with us bringing his bicycle up to the room for the night. I'm a cereal eater, but the hot breakfast looked pretty good, with scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage, potatoes, but all the other stuff was pretty average (and the pastries below average). The price was about the same as all the others (Hampton, Fairfield, etc.). I would definitely stay here again.

    Nice (but rather pricey) hotel. The usual Best Western amenities: nice large rooms, good amenities, etc. Nice breakfast and very helpful staff. But it is VERY noisy, at least on the first floor. I arrived late so they only had rooms near the front desk, and every time someone went in or out of their room the door slammed and there was virtually no sound abatement through my front door.

    « Wise choice »

    We drove by several hotels and they basically looked the same and by chance stopped by here. We did not have a reservation but they had several rooms available and we decided on a suite and they gave us a rate discount. We were amazed at the size and layout of the room. We loved having two bathrooms, the large city area and the great beds and bedding. Downtown Grand Island on Friday nights in the summer has a band playing in their railroad park and we stopped at several places that had outside seating downtown and had a drink and appetizer. Great old downtown buildings mostly fixed up. When we come back we will stay at this motel.

    « A Very Disappointing Experience. »

    Driving across America, you realize how big and beautiful the country is and how nice it would be, after a long drive, to stay in a comfortable and quiet motel. We thought we'd found that place on Expedia. Although pricey ($135 a night), we thought we'd made a good decision. We didn't. After we went to bed we could hear a phone conversation next door so clearly that we could hear the person on the other end. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. About 2 AM, the A/C began to ping when it came on.The breakfast, like the motel, was very bland. One saving grace is that the nice lady at the front desk gave us the AAA rate which saved us $15 over the rate we'd booked on Expedia. It's hard to know why this motel is so highly rated by past guests but any of the lower rated motels would not only save you money but would probably be about as good.

    « Great jumping off spot for the Rockies »

    Of all the reviews I read about the Best Western Plus Grand Island Inn & Suites in Grand Island, Nebraska, I never read a nasty one. The only complaints were that it is located eight miles off I-80 in the heart of the city and it doesn't have a restaurant. Alas, there are several good eateries in the neighborhood. Otherwise, you can't ask for anything better when it comes to cleanliness, service and comfort. Aside from the 80 non-smoking rooms, there are 15 suites available, large and comfortable, with hi-speed wifi, microwave and refrigerator. If you've got time on your hands, there is a swimming pool, fitness center, hot tub and in-room movies. The rooms also come with irons, ironing boards and hairdryers. The Stuhr Museum, Nebraska State Fair Park, Fonner Park, Oasis Water Park and Heartland Events Center are close to the hotel. A Walmart is only a mile away. We usually leave early but if you're a late riser, the complimentary hot breakfast is a good way to start the day...hot eggs, waffles, fruits, pastries, breads, cereals, yogurt, juice and coffee. We have stayed at several Best Westerns on our travels and we've never been disappointed.

There was plenty of room for kids to run around and the swimming pool was clean, stocked with towels. Only complaint was breakfast items ran out half hour after breakfast had started. Eggs were cold and hard. Almost everything had pork in it and there were not alternatives available for individuals who don't eat pork. It would have been nice to see fresh fruit served at breakfast. Staff assistance was minimal at breakfast so when items ran out they were out.

    « Best of Everything »

    Hotel has the best of everything. The staff is first rate and offer such a personal service which is sorely lacking in the hotel industry today. The place is kept in magnificent shape and very clean! Wonderful modern rooms, comfortable beds and the best free hotel in Nebraska! you can't go wrong staying here!

    « Great place to stay! »

    We love to stay at this hotel! We love the pool, the breakfast, the exercise room and the amenities. The only problem we had on this visit was the fact that it was completely booked and when we tried to get on the internet to check our times for the next day, we could not because too many people were using it all at once. We will still plan to stay there again next year when our activities take us to the area.

    the beds are great, hotel clean, super breakfast selection (could have more fruit). The pool area had too much chlorine but most hotels do. It would be really great if they'd allow you to bring your dog. They really do a nice job at keeping this hotel up and clean.

    The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating and want to make sure your stay is pleasant and hassle-free. The breakfast has a wide variety of items to choose from and the rooms are fine. I really like the walk in shower.

    Moving my daughter from Michigan to California and stopped overnight at this hotel. Very nice. Clean, spacious, well appointed rooms. Comfortable beds. Decent free breakfast. Not exactly right off the beaten path, had to drive a few miles from the highway but it probably made for a quieter stay.

    « Consistently great service »

    Stay at this Best Western several times a year and it is always a pleasant stay. Great front desk staff. Clean, comfortable and updated rooms. Breakfast is good as well. Plenty of places to grab dinner around this location just steer clear of the steakhouse across the street.

    « NEW or NEWLY Remodeled. »

    The criteria for me to give 5 stars are: pleasant Front Desk, clean rooms, soft bed, quiet and good water pressure with an adequate free breakfast. Everything was a 5 star rating except the breakfast and the decor. This place must have been remodeled or is new.....it was unbelievable!! If I could I would like to give this hotel a 5+ star rating. Thanks Again!

    « NEVER AGAIN - PLEASE AVOID THIS HOTEL!! »

    My husband and I visited Grand Island for an engagement party staying at BW Plus. Middle of the night police woke us up pounding down our door accusing us of having marijuana. They claim night clerk sent them up to investigate and these clowns determined the smell came from our room. We're 60 yr old university and finance professionals, didn't have mj, alcohol or even advil in the room. We were terrorized and insulted. When asked for an apology from the night clerk she said "Can't control the police!" NOTHING! SCARY PLACE!! STAY AWAY!!

    excellent. condition of this BW plus is fantastic. Can't do better at any price. Rooms were perfect, clean and newer. Lobby was excellent. It's a bit (8miles) off the highway, but worth the drive. Beds were the best I've seen. breakfast was typical.

    « Best Western Plus in Grand Island, NE »

    A very nice motel in the center of the city. As usual, the service was excellent. I reported a minor problem with the TV in the fitness center and it was promptly repaired the next morning. This motel has the best rate in Grand Island for business travel for government employees. Consider the Best Western any time you are staying in Grand Island.

    « Jacuzzi and Pool unperformed »

    Jacuzzi was not usable, was extremely hot, advised staff, stated look into, for 3 nights, could not use, extremely hot. Tested myself, 106.7, was supposed to be max at 104, which is hot at that temperature, worst jacuzzi experience out of all hotels I've encountered. Had kids, which made it even more complicated. Pool was to be heated, opposite end of spectrum, too cool. And with that, first night in suite, toilet would not function properly, had to change out rooms too, very dissatisfied with stay. Only perk was, breakfast, was good.

    « We would stay here again »

    We stayed here for the 1st time for the annual migration of the Sandhill Cranes. The hotel is clean, neat, non-smoking (though on 2 nites there were smokers nearby). The walls need better soundproofing between rooms, but the hotel overall is very nice. Breakfast is typical, but good overall. Stay on 3rd floor to have least noise above you.

    « Very Pleasant »

    Clean, friendly, comfortable. Not one problems and a very pleasant place to stay while on a bull-buying trip. Suggestions for an evening meal from the front desk where spot on. Breakfast was very nice. I only eat protein, but the selection of bacon, sausage, and eggs was good. Very nice property overall. Will definitely stay again whenever business takes me to Nebraska. My only disappointment was being near a family with a crying baby when the hotel was almost empty. I didn't complain and the baby quieted down at a reasonable time.

    « Great hotel, modern, clean and friendly staff, just need one change. »

    Loved this hotel, it was in a great location, friendly staff, comfy beds, modern look. The only thing I wish they'd change is the use of disposable silverware and dining products. The amount of waste created by hotels using disposable dinnerware is huge and has a large impact on filling landfills. I asked that this change be made for the environment.

    We stay here frequently for work. This hotel is by far the best hotel in Grand Island. The front desk staff is always very friendly and helpful. (Cindy and Stacy especially) They always call us by name when we come in and see that our requests are always met. The breakfast is always great, rooms are clean and very comfortable. This is like our home away from home.

    In general I've been happy with Best Western Plus hotels, and this property is no exception. Our king room had a microwave and frig plus good internet, which is a rare find. It was spacious and had a great handicapped accessible shower. The bed had a pillowtop mattress, which was nice, but unfortunately it was rather soft and saggy. Of course there was a free breakfast included.

    Super location with easy access to I-80. Rooms are modern, very clean and quiet. Best part is staff; friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. They even updated me on road conditions as I set out to make sure I was aware of travel conditions in the area.

    we spent two night at this Inn. The first night was good the 2nd not so good. We had people in the next room who got up at 6:00am and we could hear everything that they said. Fortunately, they did not get up at 4:00AM. The pillow top mattress are good the swimming pool and hot top are very good the morning breakfast is very good. I had not seen an automatic pancake maker before. The three free newspapers are excellent. But if you are looking for a good nights sleep beware.

    « The Best of Best BW »

    This Best Western needs to be put at the top of excellence , and should be a role model for all other locations. It was just a little off of US80, but well worth stopping at, on ones way.

As for the two of us, we will be stopping from now on, on our travels out of Colorado. on our way East.

    The motel was very clean and provided good service.. The beds are better than the budget motels I have visited plus they have a better than average swimming pool. Both of these justify their higher cost over the "budgets."They offer a full breakfast too. As close to route 80 as you get in Grand Island.

    We stayed at this property twice during a road trip. We found the rooms to be very comfortable and pleasing. On the return trip we discovered the pool and hot tub. Very relaxing. The overall feeling of this property was one of quiet comfort. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The woman at the desk at check in actually remembered us from our other stay. I would stay here again without question. It is a little way off the freeway--but worth it.

    This property I have stayed at about 8 times each year since they opened and I highly recommend this property. The cleanliness of the property is exceptional. The staff is very friendly and the management goes out of their way to help in any way they can. I greatly appreciate the free pick up and drop off at the airport. I rent also the conference room when I stay and while I work they run to the airport to pickup my wife or work associate up. I stay at many hotels and this one rates consistently excellent for me. I even received a retirement card from the staff as I stayed there this last week! They go above and beyond for their guests!

    this hotel was very nice. Stacy on the staff who checked us in was helpful. Offered us a king suite at king price when they did not have the former and since we were BM reward members. I really enjoyed the International Delight Iced coffee in the dispenser at breakfast. I do not drink reg. coffee, and a hot drink gets cold, but I buy this at home and loved taking it in the car. Nice touch Grand Island.

    The service was good and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Had a family reunion there and a conference room was made available for us to get together in and visit. The free breakfast is outstanding with many hot and cold foods available. 3 stories with an elevator. Vending and ice machines only on floors 1 and 3. Nice quiet location. Large room with 2 queen beds. Very clean and nice. Lots of parking and nice landscaping.

    « An average place to stay »

    We stayed here for one night on a road trip out to Colorado. The room was pretty average but we really disliked the bed pillows which were 4 small square pillows (like throw pillows) per bed rather than the typical rectangle bed pillows. There is very little insulation between floors, and since our room was on the 2nd floor, we could hear people walking and little kids running up and down the hallway up on the 3rd floor at all hours of the night. Our room also must have been right above the kitchen because at around 3am we could start to smell them cooking the bacon and pancakes for breakfast. Needless to say, when we went down to breakfast the next morning we weren't very impressed with the food because it had been cooked hours before and wasn't fresh. Overall, I probably wouldn't stay here again but it wasn't the worst hotel I've ever stayed at.
