    « Excellent Hotel »

    I enjoy staying at Best Western hotels and this is the best one of the bunch. From the courteous and accommodating staff, to the cleanliness of the room, and the outstanding breakfast this was a very pleasant stay. Excellent!

    « Great way to see the Sandhill Cranes »

    I didn't realize that lodging would be such a challenge but there were very few rooms left anywhere when I arrived in town late one afternoon and the prices were high. I am a loyalty program member and that helped - they were willing to work with me and I got a room. Since I was interested in the cranes lifting off in the morning it was very nice that the breakfast was out, nice and hot food before 6 am. Thank you so much to the staff at this hotel. I got to see the cranes in the evening and morning.

    « Travel weary--Hotel was there for us. »

    This hotel was open late and provided comfortable up-to-date room. Breakfast the next morning was hot, fresh, and delicious. Friendly helpful staff. My $10 off Best Western certificate was gladly accepted and promptly applied.

    « Great location for the Sandhill Crane Festival. »

    This Best Western is a great location for anyone who wants to attend the Sandhill Crane Festival. Book 4 to 6 months in advance of the festival. I wanted to stay there on March 21 but they were already sold out and I called 3 months in advance. On a Wednesday night! This is far enough away from the busy Holiday Inn and Convention Center. When I went to the Holiday Inn to meet my tour bus, there were 3 conventions going on simultaneously. Talk about noise and confusion! I was glad I did not stay at this Holiday Inn. The front desk staff is very helpful. One suggested a restaurant in town called, The Egg and I. What a great choice! The room was clean although the mattress was softer than I am used to. Carpeting looked new. Room smelled good which was a relief compared to another hotel I stayed at on Grand Island. I forgot some personal hygiene items and the front desk gave me extras at no charge. They have Hazelnut coffee in the lobby 24 hours a day which I really appreciated. They also offer a complimentary breakfast which was adequate, but nothing special. It's the standard fare most hotels that offer breakfast have. Enough to get people out the door and save the expense of buying breakfast somewhere else. I would recommend having the breakfast available from 6 to 10 am instead of 9 am. Also it would be nice to have fresh fruit available in the lobby for guests who miss the breakfast or arrive late. I appreciate the fact that the Best Western hotels still give you the option to cancel 24 hours or more in advance without penalty. Some hotels have switched to 48 hours. If I visit Kearney again, I will definitely stay at the Best Western.

    « Great stay. »

    We were on the road and walked in and luckily they had a room available. Very clean and quiet. The front desk was very helpful. There was a kids birthday party in the pool area, so that was kind of loud, but it didn't carry into the hotel. The breakfast was hot and delicious and they served till 10 am on Saturday. We would definitely stay there again.

    « Our return trip was good »

    We stayed here on our trip to Kearney to view the Sandhill crane migration. The hotel is in a good location close to the interstate, which allowed for easy access. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was quiet and clean; the beds were comfortable. Our room was close to an exit, so we did not have to carry photography gear too far. We took advantage of the Grab & Go breakfast bag since we had to leave the hotel at 4:30 am (before the buffet opened). The bags consist of a muffin, apple, yogurt, and water. It was enough to tide us over until lunch and was quite convenient. The staff does not pack the bag in advance, which was a problem one morning when we overslept. We had enough left over from the previous day, so it was no problem. There is coffee in the lobby; however, I thought there should be hot water for us tea drinkers. Recommended!

    « Great place to stay »

    The best western plus is a great place to stay. It is easy to walk to the Ice center and not have to find parking. The staff were friendly and helpful about where to find things around Kearney Neb. Breakfast was fresh and a large assortment.

    « Noisy night stay »

    We were thankful to get off the road just before 2am. I have stayed at this hotel before and never had an experience like the one we had this past weekend. Just after 3:15 am, my husband was woken by a loud rapping sound. As it was a windy night, he thought it might be something from outside. He went back to sleep only to be woken again. I first heard it at 6am and it continued off and on for over an hour. Finally we got up and went to have breakfast. When we returned to the room, the noise was gone. When I reported the noise to the front desk when I checked out, the only thing the clerk had to say was that it was "usually" quiet in that end of the hotel. They did nothing. Not even an apology. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

    « Comfortable »

    Very quiet, comfortable beds, they were able to accommodate the need for adjoining rooms, hot water, good shower pressure. Rooms were very spacious, ample parking if pulling a trailer. Would stay again.

    « Awesome suites on 3rd floor »

    Stayed here for one night on business. Brought my family along and our suite was perfect. This was our second stay in the suites here. Staff was very friendly and property clean. Manager reception was a nice touch with completentary drinks. Our room had full kitchen , queen and king bedrooms with walk in closets, his and her sinks with showers. Breakfast was stocked, and really clean. We will stay here every visit to Kearney.

    « Best hotel on my trip »

    I stay only at best westerns, on my road trip from Chicago to Utah this one was was the best. Adam at front desk was really awesome. He had a soul and personality lol. Unlike most hotels. He told me all about this area and how people come from all over to watch birds try and get laid. The hotel was nice! Nice wood furniture and it was big. The bathroom had a ceiling heater for after a shower, never seen that before. Everything was clean. Everything. Housekeeping does great here. Breakfast was amazing. Lots of choices and good food. Even lots of sweet options to satisfy my sweet tooth! Like cinnamon sugar packets! Who does that?! These guys do! Overall fantastic place with great service. OH and the pool looked really nice too! It was 4 degrees outside or I'd of considered it lol.

    « Welcome respite from the snowy travel. »

    After a long day's drive, snowy weather began to make hazardous roads. It was difficult to identify the roadway to the hotel due to blowing snow. The parking lot and sidewalks were quite messy and slippery but it was perfect inside. The room was beautiful, exceptionally clean, and very quiet, even though the hotel was quite busy. Definitely would recommend!

    « Friendly and reasonable »

    Good location and we have returned back. Friendly staff were very helpful and it is a good value. Enjoyed the fitness room with a nice treadmill, tv and overhead fans. We will go back again. Many nearby restaurants

    « Truckin through Nebraska »

    Stopped here ahead of a winter storm without a reservation. The storm blew through overnight, and we are on our way the next day. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The free hot breakfast the next morning was the usual hotel fare (eggs, bacon, waffles, cereals, pastries, coffee and juice). I felt the room was a tad overpriced. Only detractor for me was that there was no elevator to my room.

    4
    « Good overnight stay while en route »

    I often choose Best Western or a similar hotel while en route driving, particularly because of the convenience of the complimentary breakfast. This was a good stay; my only complaint was for some large dark smudges on the ceiling in the bathroom which were unpleasant. Large enough to be seen by cleaning staff, although they probably aren't taught to take care of ceilings. Yet particularly in the bathroom, it needs to be a clean space.

    3
    « Stormy »

    Room was great but huge storm hit shortly after we checked in. TV was giving warnings by county but not being from Nebraska we didn't know the county name. Felt perhaps the front desk could have warned guests of the impending storm. Due to the storm, electricity was out all evening and was still out when we checked out, so of course there was no TV, hot water for showers, and no breakfast etc. My biggest concern was the lack of lighting in the hallways. Checked several times during the night and hallways were pitch black with no exit lighting. Apparently there was no back up generators. Finally in the morning someone had brought tiny lanterns and marked the stairs. We were never contacted by employees to see if we needed any type of assistance. When we left in the morning I indicted we had some concerns and a young man took our phone number and told me the management would contact us but no one ever called. Felt their emergency planning was seriously lacking.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    We make regular trips from Wisconsin to Colorado and back. On our way out we stay in Kearney. I am a BW regular so we tried this place on our first trip and our subsequent ones. Staff: friendly and helpful. Facilities: Very clean, good beds. Amenities: great wifi, microwave and refrigerator in rooms. This franchise is locally owned and managed. We have availed ourselves of the pool or exercise but they appear well appointed and maintained.

    « Modern and close to I-80 »

    Includes manager happy hour, large pool and hot tub. Warm and quiet. Beautiful rooms at a very reasonable price. Ample parking close to rooms. Modern luggage carts. Easy access to I-80. Best place to overnight in Kearney, IMHO.

    « Just like Home »

    The staff at check in do everything they can to make your stay comfortable and convenient. The beds are comfy, pillows are fluffy. The room has everything you need for a night or weekend away from home. Hot tub is fantastic. Full breakfast.

    « Family trip »

    Convenient to interstate, yet no traffic noise was heard. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean and roomy, with comfortable beds and pillows. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool after 11 hours on the road! Breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold foods. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

    « Conveniently located close to interstate »

    This hotel is just off the interstate, but it is also very quiet for sleeping. Rooms have been renovated and have comfortable beds. Coffee is available in lobby at check in. Breakfast is included with hot and cold options available. Convenient place to stay while travelling.

    « Clean and pleasant »

    The room was clean and had nice appointments. I could hear the people staying on the second floor above me walking around but they did not keep me awake. Breakfast the next day wasn't serves until 7:00 a.m. but the young man at the desk made me a nice "to go" bag at 5:30 a.m. I will probably stay here again.

    « Peaceful place at a good rate »

    This was a very clean hotel. The rooms were large and well decorated. The phone was on top of the refrigerator cabinet across the room from the bed. That seemed a bit strange. All in all this was a great place to stay at a good value. WARNING: check your bill before you leave. I had some travel card numbers I wanted applied and they weren't. After I brought it to their attention it was corrected. I wanted a copy showing that my Visa had been credited the money I was charged and never got that. I would stay there again.

    « Shabby outside, descent room »

    Just an old hotel in need of an upgrade. The room was okay, bed comfortable, bathroom clean - so the essentials were there. The exercise equipment was either broken or sticky/dirty, weak coffee, ordinary breakfast

    My husband and I went across country to visit my parents and this was a wonderful spot in the midst of our trip. Rooms were well appointed, and it was close to restaurants and gas and the highway. Would most definitely recommend anyone to stop in.

    « Very welcoming and comfortable accomodation. »

    We were very impressed with the hotel in every way. The breakfast and happy hour were nicely set up, and the pool and hot tub were immaculate. We felt welcomed and taken care of by everyone in the staff there. The room was exceptionally clean and very nicely appointed. It was the nicest BW I've seen and I travel quite a lot.

    « Above and Beyond »

    Management and staff were excellent and very accommodating. Any time we asked to be able to use the dining area for small group break away sessions there was no hesitation to accommodate our request. The staff made sure to check in and make sure that water and caffeine was stocked in our main meeting room at all times!

    « Great staff and a very comfortable stay! »

    I'm so pleased I came back to stay in Kearney - Six years ago I had a very unfortunate bad experience at a Best Western hotel in Kearney, long since gone I hasten to add - significantly the building was demolished a couple of years ago. So uncomfortable in fact that I decided to write to the manager - to my pleasure I received a reply offering me a free nights stay any time I was back. I honestly didn't think I would be, but my current research and work did in fact mean I would need to stay over again in Kearney. So I wrote to the manager asking to redeem the promise she had made. To my delight Kelly Krier is still the manager of a Best Western Plus - and it is a much newer facility with really well fitted out rooms and suites. Kelly immediately acknowledged the previous situation and said of course come stay with us for free! So I suggested the date I was looking for and we were all set. Just before my stay my situation changed and I actually needed two nights (the second one I would cover the cost for. So I called and the staff were again great- and without any fuss at quite short notice I was all set. Upon arrival the receptionist informed me that I had been upgraded to a suite for both nights and again she was friendly and efficient in every respect. I cant say enough how at home and comfortable my stay has been - I'm certain that I'll stay here when I'm back through this way in the spring.

    « Keep Going »

    Based on the reviews here I was hoping for a much better outcome. Keep going if you can. Traveling across the country with twins, a hotel was my saving grace at the end of the day and this hotel just made it that much rougher. Unfortunately everything in this area was booked the day I was planning to arrive so I decided to give Best Western a shot having stayed in one just a few months back. This was far from my last BW experience. As soon as I walked down the hall, the musty, old smoke smell hit me. The room was even worse. There was a roach on the bathroom floor. I asked for a crib and was given a pack n play stained from stop to bottom and told they do not have sheets. The bed/sheets were clean, the tv worked and the managers reception were a nice reminder not to get back in the car and keep going.

    « Good place to stay »

    This was a good place to stay. Rooms very clean and modern. Breakfast had many choices and quality of food was good and displayed well. Close restaurants in the vicinity for meals other than breakfast.

    « Staff was great with packed hotel »

    My husband and I took my elderly parents to Kearney and spent the night so they could see the solar eclipse. The hotel was packed with other visitors there for the same reason. I was impressed with the kindness and efficiency of the staff with my parents as well as with the kindness and efficiency staff took with other visitors who demanded a lot of attention from the staff. Kudos to a very efficient staff. The breakfast staff also did a great job considering all the visitors descending upon them at the same time and eating as if they were starved!!

    « Nice Hotel »

    Clean rooms, staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good but breakfast room lacked in seating. Good hotel for the money. Just enough off the busy section of town that allows for a quiet experience. Affordable hotel.

    « Traveling through Kearney »

    Stopped here last year on our way back from IL and again this trip. Easy off and back on to the Interstate. Nice sized room, comfortable bed, micro/frij/coffee pot available, wifi worked fine, manager's reception with beer, soda, wine and snacks was a bonus! Only drawback was the roadway into the motel was in bad need of repair! We will stay again next time through.

    Very nice place for our family reunion. Handicapped rooms are just perfect for those of us in wheelchairs! Breakfast bar was great! Nothing but outstanding to say about this stay! Employees very helpful and went out of their way to accommodate our family reunion, I would recommend this motel to anyone that wants a very clean nice place to stay for one night or a week!

    This inn has one of the best beds we have sleep in. The room was clean, the amenities were sufficient, and the internet was adequate. The breakfast was delicious. It included excellent scrambled eggs, sausage, and very good coffee. The items were kept stocked so there was never an opportunity to be depleted due to the several guests. We were pleased with is portion of stay. Ck-in was quick and friendly. Ck-out was equally efficient. We would seek out this inn again if given the opportunity.

    Checked into this property Sep 7th for one night, as we were finishing up our Nebraska Passport 2017 tours. The desk clerk was very polite and friendly, and upon seeing that we had a service dog with us, put us very near an entrance. The whole place looks like it has been recently updated. New carpeting, furniture, tiles in the bathroom, all very nice. Quiet room also!

    « Stay at Kearney, NE Best Western »

    Room was very nice and clean. The location was away from the action of the city but the room was quiet and comfortable. The location was close to the interstate which made it easy to find. I was not able to connect my laptop to the wifi but I was able to get my phone and Kindle Fire connected.

    « Clean, comfortable and welcoming »

    Room was spacious and clean. Updated decor in rooms and lobby, very welcoming. Very convenient to I-80 travelers. Fitness center and a very nice pool available. Breakfast was very good. Hot and cold items available, fresh and tasty. Staff friendly and accomadating. Only negative was very soft pillows and a mattress pad that easily wrinkled and became uncomfortable.

    « Outstanding Suite »

    We stayed here for one night. Our room was on third floor. Jess at check in was so friendly and helpful. The property was very clean and well maintained. Our room was a two bedroom suite, king room with his and her sinks, shower and toilet and big walk in closet. Bedroom was separated by oak sliding door into den/work area which followed into spacious living room and large kitchen with fridge. Queen bedroom at his and her sinks with separate bathroom and HuGE walk in closet. Would HIGHLY recommend the Suites on third floor! Pool and breakfast were also great. Definitely would stay here again!!

    « Comfortable, seemed recently renovated »

    Th property looks typical/average from the outside, but inside it appeared recently renovated. Room was attractive. Beds were very comfortable. On interstate 80 but we did not hear traffic noise. Breakfast was average. Entrance is on a service road. Property is next to an out-of-business gas station, so on approach we were concerned it was rundown. We were pleasantly surprised. Staff were friendly. Parking was convenient to room. If in Kearney, would consider this property again.

    « A Hotel That Exceeds Expectations »

    I chose this hotel from guest reviews and pictures. After a few hours on the road, I was looking forward to a good nights rest before an early shoot in the morning. Much to my surprise, I had been upgraded to a King Suite! The room was on a Secure floor which was accessible by key only! Already impressed, I entered the room to find it complete with a spacious FULL kitchen, complete with dishes, full size fridge, stove, oven, and dishwasher! (The only negative - remnants in the sink from the previous stay, and some of the glasses in the cupboard were not clean - but hey there was even soap for the dishwasher, so I just put them in the dishwasher!) The rest of the room was spacious and spotless! I was so impressed with this stay, I booked a second night! If you're driving through Nebraska, and you need a place to stay, PLAN to stay at this hotel! Put it on your itinerary! I know I will!

    « good overnight stop »

    I've stayed at this hotel twice in the last few years, and I'm really happy with the price and the rooms. The beds are comfortable, the staff has always been professional and friendly, and the fitness center is very clean and up to date, as is the rest of the hotel. I did make the mistake of choosing a room on the first floor. Like many hotels, this property engages in the puzzling trend of having curtains that don't close. The opaque curtains didn't block out the glaring, digital red words on the sign (the one you can see in the picture). I also prefer to be naked (it's a habit; I live alone), but I don't want to traumatize anyone who might be walking by. So I had to get creative with the ironing board. I was so worn out from four days on the road (Or maybe I'm just lazy) I didn't put the ironing board back the next morning, leaving it to the cleaning staff (I leave tips, but I still feel a little bad about making peoples' jobs more difficult).

    I enjoyed staying at the Best Western Plus Mid Nebraska this past July. The staff at check out was the most helpful, kind and courteous. I had left my daughter's conditioner in the shower and was offered a key without feeling that I was distracting her from her other booking obligations.

    The Best Western Plus in Kearney was the best after a long day on the road. The room was clean and comfortable. The oversized chair in the room was the best - to relax in! The staff gave us the option of a 1st or 2nd floor room, which was appreciated. The hot breakfast in the morning was good, with a good variety of choices. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. If we ever pass through NE again, I would definitely stay there again!

    Overflow hole in the bathroom sink was built up with mold and gunk....and rim of sink right under the counter was filthy.....I was surprised...In my experience, Best Western usually holds itself to a higher standard. It was inconvenient that I had to use the bathtub to wash my hands and brush my teeth.

    « Very Comfortable Beds »

    This Kearney, Nebraska Best Western Plus hotel could easily be mistaken for a Marriott Fairfield and that's a compliment. I want to emphasize how comfortable the beds were. I'll say that a second time: I want to emphasize how comfortable the beds were. The bathroom is very nice. I liked the bathroom furniture, better soaps and shampoos, and other attention to detail. There were more choices for breakfast. Nice, gentle attendant name Donna, who seemed to have pride in her work. Donna suggested making a bagel, egg, and bacon sandwich which was very good. Donna actually let me put fresh blueberries in the waffle maker to cook them into the waffles. She said she sometimes stays open after breakfast hours to accommodate sports teams like the basketball team that was there with us. Donna's effort was worth giving her a tip.

    « Just Average »

    The front desk was not friendly and barely acknowledged I was waiting to check in. This hotel requires many more points than what is published on the Best Western website to qualify for the different levels of their rewards program. The only other staff person we encountered ignored us as well. One positive note about this hotel experience was the barbecue restaurant that is very close.

    Room was outdated and not as clean as some reviewers wrote ... when we left I noticed a big brown dirty spot on my husband's site of the bed - he didn't want to tell me the first time so I would not be grossed out ... I like to work out - the 3 machines should be replaced - treadmill finally worked but stopped 3 times in 5 minutes ... and 2 other machines were so outdated. They need healthier items for breakfast - fruit - plain yoghourt as a suggestion.

The room was clean and had a nice decor. The bed was comfortable and pillows were medium consistency. Lighting was good and had comfortable sitting chair. The swimming pool was heated and the hot tub was great. The fitness room had four different cardio machines and a weight bars and bench. The breakfast was the best...cold orange and apple juices, waffles with cherry, strawberry, blueberry, and/or syrup for the toppings, scrambled eggs and bacon. Then of course the usual cold cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, pastries, toast, bagels. There was a nice selections of tea and the coffee of course. They even had appetizers, and beverages from 5 PM tl 7 PM, this was a great treat after a long day of driving.

    We recently traveled from the mid west to the Washington coast, and down to the Redwoods and all places in between. On our way back,after a 12hr. drive we decided to stop in Kearney.we never researched here as we did other places to spend the night. We decided to stay at The Best Western, its location was great to our tired day of traveling,so we pulled in.up to our room and it was a very nice room, clean quiet everything you expect but rarely get.. Off into town for some shopping and supper. Once back at the Western we readied for sleep.We woke up in the mourning and looked at each other and each of our smiles said it all. They had the MOST comfortable beds we ever slept in at a hotel and no we don't do pricey places. This was so awesome we felt renewed! And we were ready to tackle the intensely dense fog that mourning for our journey home. If it wasn't for that great nights sleep it would of been more of a challenge. The breakfast tho small was nice along with the Java. If your though there and need rest, stop in I don't think you will be disappointed. Oh by the way we traveled July 2014 but the selection below didn't allow that selection.

    In our long trip and many hotel stays this place takes the winner on most comfortable beds and pillow combination. The room was spacious and the front desk staff was cheerful and efficient.

My only negative would be the not so pleasant breakfast attendant but she didn't out weigh the other great features here.

There is a refrigerator, and microwave in the room as well. The pool and hot tub area was very nice. The pool is quite large with lots of chairs. It a great area to chill with a book, and splash around for awhile. The breakfast hours are early, from 6 to 9 am.

    The area surrounding the hotel did not offer the best view. The hotel itself is nice-looking. While walking to the room, we noticed a very strong mildew smell in one part of the hallway. The further you got away, though, the fainter the smell. The room was okay, though for some reason, the phone and refrigerator were unplugged. Also, the phone was not on the nightstand, but on the other side of the room. Did not eat breakfast since it didn't smell very appealing, so can't really comment on that.

    traveling back to Arizona and made a decision to shorten one of our days driving. Made a reservation with the assistance of a wonderful front desk person. This is a beautiful motel, especially for being in Kearney, Neb. Sits away from the interstate which made it very quiet. Loved the room and the king sized bed. If we had any complaint at all it was the ac made a really loud noise when the fan kicked off. The room was well appointed and comfortable chairs and couch. Loved that they had a happy hour with some tasty snacks including cocktail wieners,dip and crackers and cheese. also gave you two beers or two glasses of wine. nice indoor pool and spa also. would highly recommend this to anyone. you won't be disappointed ..should note that motel has split level lobby to rooms with stairs...could be issue for handicapped or elderly

    Don't let Kearney's western Nebraska location fool you. Kearney is a growing community. There are some good restaurant choices not far from the Best Western plus. The only downside to this Best Western's location is that GPS devices will not direct you to it. The GPS takes you to a former location for one of BW's properties. Once you locate it, this is a good property with a nice pool and a large hot tub, and a very good workout room.

    « Senior Games Nebraska State Games »

    I believe this is the third stay in this property. All have been excellent stays. As always this Best Western property lived up to the Best Western Standard. Bed great, breakfast great, pool (indoor) great, exercise room great, guest internet room great. This property is located to the south of I-80. Just to the north of I80 is almost every restaurant type you could need. A couple miles further is Down Town Kearney with restaurants and various other establishments. We stopped in at the Cunningham Journal for their live band. As for tourist attractions their are many in the area but first most is the Great Platte River Road Archway Monument. This stretches across I-80 just a mile or so to the east of the hotel. It's not hard to spend a couple days there visiting all there is to see. So if your traveling I-80 east or west the Best Western Plus Mid Nebraska is a great place to take a brake from driving.

    « Another visit to BW Mid Nebraska and it was good »

    We've stayed at the Best Western for about 5 years on yearly visits to Kearney. We stayed at others in town but the BW is the best in terms of rooms, parking, ease of access to I-80 and their breakfasts. Yes, their breakfasts are very good. Always hot food, plenty of room and people running that area that seem to care. The beds are soft, the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are as well. Everything works and you get a fridge and a microwave in your room. They also have an indoor pool and indoor hot tub. However, the hot tub is very much a kid magnet. We've noticed that unsupervised children are in it a lot despite the signs that prohibit this. kids under 5 are brought in, which can't be good and is actually against the law in Nebraska (per the other unread sign), So the pool area is great for families but not so much for adults who are trying to relax. They also have a nice exercise area and keep hot coffee available all day. We'll come back here.

    Average place. Clean, comfortable rooms, basic breakfest. Glad breakfest was free. Not a big selection. No in house restaurant or bar/lounge. Morning front counter staff gave me bad information. Ask him how far someplace was and he told me a good hour away when in fact it was less then 10 minutes. If you don't know the answer to a question admit you don't know. Don't try to BS your way through it.

    « Slower, quieter hotel »

    Quiet place, not as flashy as other hotels. I'm guessing all the "families with young kids" stay at other hotels in the area. This night, the people staying here were mostly older. Very friendly staff. Hot tub was too hot, but pool was nice. Loved the free snacks & drinks (yes beer,too) in the early evening. Nice touch.

    Excellent free continental breakfast. Nice clean room with a great shower. We stayed one night before heading home the next day. My only issue is our" in room air conditioner "that worked very well was loud. Too loud to watch tv while it operated without turning up the volume way up. Since we were road weary, and only looking to rest after a long day on the interstate, I never brought this up to management and I should have. I totally recommend staying here. Judy and Nate up front are so friendly and helpful.The beds are very comfortable. There is a swimming pool and weight room exercise area. You can check your valuables in the hotel safe up front. It's just a block off the interstate. Four and a half stars. It would have been 5 except for the loud air conditioner.

    We had a great two day stay at Best Western in Kearney, NE. Food was great, pool was clean, rooms were immaculate. Definitely a great hotel for the price we paid (group rate for a wedding). It was also in a great location right off the interstate so you didn't need to trek through town to get to it!

    We've stayed here at different times of the year and it is always great. This is a keeper. We have recommended this place to family and friends who have stayed and were pleased too. The quality of food for breakfast is very good, We have stayed at other Best Western Plus faacilities that have not been near as good or presented as nicely.

    « An OK place to stop »

    Plus side - The room was clean and the staff (front desk and breakfast room) helpful and friendly. The happy hour was very nice - cheese, crackers, cold cuts, wine and beer and that attendant was welcoming and bubbly. The whole place seemed very well taken care of. Negatives - our room air conditioner was noisier than a Peterbilt, maybe even a Harley! It roared off and on all night - though I don't think it came close to approaching the 70 she setting. We about roasted. Breakfast selections are extensive, but the pastries were hard and dry and the eggs looked so artificial I didn't care try them...

    « Excellent Place to Stay for Viewing Sandhill Cranes »

    We found this hotel to be clean, friendly, comfortable and an excellent place to stay while in Kearney to see the Sandhill Crane migration. Close to the Platt River and a convenient drive to Fort Kearney State Rec Area, the Ian Nicolson Audubon Center and the corn fields where the Cranes congregate. On the outskirts of town but still convenient to a number of restaurants. This is THE place to stay if you come to Kearney to see the birds!

    Hi Folks, My wife and I have been loyal Platinum Card Best Western customers for years. We get a clean, comfortable, quiet room (I sound like Tom Baudette) and a buffet breakfast in most of the chain. It also has business services when you need them. Who could ask for more in a mid-priced motel. Regards, OldeBear

    As soon as I walked into the room it smelled clean and fresh. The bathroom was clean. The staff was super nice and helpful. I am a night shift nurse and I felt very comfortable and was able to sleep very well except for the second day they were doing hammering in the room next to me which was inconvenient but I understand since I am a night shift nurse and most activity for most people is done during the day. But I will have to say that the breakfast was quite gross.

    This is the first time we've stayed at the Best Western in Kearney, NE. (4/17/2016). It was very easy to find (right off the freeway). The young man who checked us in was very proficient at his job as well as friendly and polite. We loved the room we were assigned. The location was excellent and It was very clean and pleasant. Comfortable bed and lots of pillows without having to ask. We used the exercise room which was also very nice. It had a good selection of equipment which was all maintained quite well. There were many food choices just a short car trip away. The free breakfast in the morning was good, too. We would definitely stay there again.

    I was tired, irritable, exhausted from driving cross-country. I couldn't drive anymore. when the hotel clerk - Connor - said... "it's another 2.5 hours to Omaha"... I just said.. F this... I'm done driving for the night. Connor, great looking guy, sweet as can be, and so helpful, checked me in quickly. He was friendly and courteous. Cute guy also. I checked, in, checked the room and passed out. Used the fast internet to check my mail and fell asleep. I woke up at 330 in the morning and started my trip again.

    Overall very pleasant stay. Good staff. Clean facility. Clean room. Modern furnishings. Modern Appliances and fixtures. One complaint is that the Television should be mounted on the wall to better enjoy viewing while in the room. Also, I do not appreciate seeing tip jars in the breakfast areas of the Best Western Hotels. It seems that this is a common practice at all of the Best Western Hotels that I have stayed around the country. I am not being served, and don't feel that tips should be necessary.

    Rather than fight the chaos of air travel through O'Hare and Denver Airport my wife and I decided to drive. We planned the trip and needed to reserve an overnight stop at the Best Western Plus in Kearney.

    Our room -- on the second floor and accessible from the ground floor through a very small elevator -- was fine -- adequate bed and space. We had a problem figuring out the WiFi access, however, and called the front desk twice to ask about it. The staff member on duty did not give me the correct information, however, and my husband went down to ask about it and also about the extra pillows I had requested earlier. We finally got logged onto WiFi, and had been told that pillows would be brought to us. I tried unsuccessfully to reach the front desk at least two more times, and we never got pillows. When I mentioned this at checkout, the staffer on duty immediately discounted our bill and apologized, which helped my negative feelings a great deal. Breakfast was standard hotel fare and the area was kept clean and food refreshed.

Room was neat and clean and was impressed with the bed decor. Simple but with taste. Breakfast was first class. The eggs were not dried out and bacon was not over cooked. There was a large variety of foods from cereal, toast, muffins, bagels and do-nuts to eggs, bacon and waffles. Apple and orange juice along with coffee and milk as well as dry cereal choices. The dining area was kept clean as guests came and went during the morning. My experience has been the dinning area usually dose not get cleaned until after the breakfast time.
