    « Good stay »

    We like staying here because it is close to Cabelas and some good restaurants and easy to get back on I-80. The staff was very helpful faxing a letter for my wife. This is a nice motel to stay in and the breakfast was good.

    Great location. Wonderful walking area. Good selection for food. Discounts available to those staying at the motel. Very attentive staff. Service was what you can now expect at all the latest BWs. Really nice

    « Disappointing »

    I picked this hotel over similar priced ones based on the photos and amenities. It looked perfect for a quick getaway and had exactly what we wanted: workout equipment, pool, hot tub and full breakfast. Upon arrival, the lobby was very cozy and the staff was friendly. Our room was comfortable and clean. We than discovered the pool area was closed for maintenance which was super disappointing as there was no one even there working on it. When I went to check out the fitness area, the entire left side of the hall was cluttered with cases of soda. Breakfast the following morning was also a let down. No real health options e.g. fresh fruit, non fat yogurt, the coffee was barely warm and the poor girl had to do double duty covering counter as guests checked out and refill food. Ended up not able to use workout room either. After making my way down ?storage hall?, I found the room to be very warm. I tried turning on the air, but it never got cool enough to comfortably exercise.

    Nice clean rooms, great breakfast, friendly staff and restaurants within walking distance. Quite area and right off the highway with easy access to get back on. Great price for the room that we had. Would stay here again.

    « Holly needs a raise »

    I believe it was Holly at the front desk when I checked in. She took my reservation over the phone when computers were down. She was most pleasant and composed during a very stressful situation (blizzard, roads closed). She kept me apprised of the restaurants that would be open. She even went as far as to loan me her personal phone charger for the night. She needs a promotion and at the very least a raise.

    « Short Staffed. Cheap. Room Passable. Never again »

    The room was OK. Everything worked. Very cheap amenities, e.g. no beverages available in the lobby after breakfast. Internet was out in the morning and the desk said the manager would have to fix it, but the manager did not arrive until after 9am. There was no hot water for tea at breakfast and we waited 20 minutes to get one cup of hot water. Also waited 15 minutes for the eggs to be replenished. No fruit for breakfast. A typical cheapskate motel skimping on everything possible, with the least amount of staff with the least amount of training. There must be better options in Sidney. Certainly will never stay at this place again.

    « Quick Overnight »

    My husband and I stayed here as we were passing through town. Since we were just staying to sleep and then getting back on the road, we didn't get a chance to see anything like the pool, but the common areas we did see were very clean and nicely decorated. The room we stayed I was cozy and perfect for our needs. I was cold from traveling and the heater in the room warmed me right up! The bed was hands down the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. At breakfast that morning I was happy to find soy milk on the buffet. I'm not always that lucky.

    I stayed at the best western plus in sidney on march 5th.VEry nice building .The rooms were clean and the maids were very nice and helpful when I needed some extra towels for my two kids. The lady that checked me in ..HAlly i think she said her name was.. She was not the best to work with.SHe was actually kinda rude to me and my husband.MS. JOdi the bb lady was very nice bb was awesome and had just about anything you would want for breakfast. There was a gentleman name kolton that was very helpful when checking us out.. even gave us a free water bottle to go!! MS.KAtlin was very nice as well she directed me to the location of the starbucks in town and was happy to help me take my bags to the car even though it was cold and windy !! Besides the rude fd attendant that checked my family in. THis is the hotel I'd recommend in this town.

    « Disappointed »

    It seems like we didn't stay in the same hotel as reviewed by others? For $100 a night room I expected more. Floors, particularly around baseboards and thresholds needed vacuumed. There was an empty water bottle and debris around night stand. The towels and bath mat were frayed and needed replaced. The bed skirts were snagged and crooked on the frames. Our tub wouldn't drain so had to stand in water. There was a layer of dust on the clock, phone, lamps, headboard, vents, etc. On a positive note, the bedding was clean, staff was very friendly, and the breakfast was good. This price point didn't meet my expectations as cleanliness is a priority and other amenities warrant a higher price. If in this area again we would choose another location.

    Sidney Nebraska is home to the famed Cabela's and an out of the way gem where the rat race is non-existing. The Best Western Hotel is the gem of hotels in Sidney with super staff and super service. The rooms super clean and comfortable and a hot tub and pool equally clean and enjoyable.

    « Great Stay in Nebraska »

    Excellent location (right off I70, near the "Original" Cabellas. Great restaraunt next door and a fabulous steak house in Sidney. We were driving across country and that Nebraska stretch gets long. We had not been to Sidney before and this was a good opportunity. Clean rooms, great breakfast. Perfect stop over.

    Enjoyable stay with several restaurants nearby. The staff was very friendly from check in to check out. Everything was new and up to date. Breakfast hour starting at 6:00 was great for early risers. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Great but a bit noisy »

    Everything was great with the room and hotel except there was a loud mechanical noise at the end of the building. I wish we had requested a different room closer to the lobby so it wouldn't have been as loud.

    « Nice location »

    Hotel was nice, staff was friendly. There was a variety of restaurants around the hotel a steak house, Mexican, Applebee's, and a Perkins. Fast food locations across the street. Tesla Electric car chargers in the parking lot, eight of them.

    « No complaints here »

    It's a long boring drive crossing Nebraska. Pull over here at Sidney to visit the huge Cabelas store and spend the night. For a Best Western, this is a notch above other that I have stayed. Easy to find off the highway and right next to Cabelas along with some good places to eat. The lodge is nicely decorated, room was clean and comfortable. I had a reservation and paid $116 for a nice room with two queen beds.

    « GONE WAY DOWN HILL »

    I have stayed at this hotel extensively (on and off) for 5 years. Recently, it has gone WAY down hill. It is really dirty- rooms need a deep cleaning. You can see the dust on the walls. I requested the stairways (carpet) be vacuumed after 3 days of looking at the dirt and debris...the front desk clerk was uninterested in my request...and the next day- still was not vacuumed. The last two stays I have had to ask for a hairdryer. The breakfast is HORRIBLE - if there is any...often there is barely anything. Skip this place and try the Hampton or Fairfield.

    « overnight on the road »

    Snippiest desk clerk I have met in 10 years. She totally had a take it or leave it attitude when asked about rates. The best price she could give me was $10 more than I had found on the internet. Usually with AAA or rewards, when I am standing in front of them, they can match that price. She really should attend training like some chains offer. She would have also known not to show up in a rumpled shirt with messy hair and a bad attitude. Overall, the hotel seems pretty new. It was really tough to get the luggage cart on the elevator with the sharp angles and the room does not have a closet, just a free standing wardrobe which further hampers the luggage handling

    « Great overnight stay »

    Best Western located in Sidney, NE, was a very pleasant stay on my way further west. The evening clerk was friendly and made sure I had a room on the first floor. The room was clean and fresh. Overall a great stay. Grabbed some breakfast there prior to leaving. Decent selection of food items and the coffee was hot.

    « Nice facility close to first Cabelas »

    We had reserved days ahead of time. Attendant at check in was not over friendly and seemed to be sick...coughing and sneezing. Nice quiet facility a short stroll to the first ever Cabela's. Motel was not very crowded at all for a weeknight. We walked to Cabela's about 4:00 then stopped by Applebee's adjacent to the motel, on the way back, for dinner. If you show your motel room key, Applebees gives you a discount. The entire time we were there, there was some garbage from someone's car right in the front row near the door of the motel. Some fast food bags and cups. When we checked out the next morning about 9:00 it was still there. The breakfast was good, with a very friendly and helpful female attendant. The large lobby is similar to the Cabela's store.

    « Wonderful experience! »

    I stayed here for about 5 months on a travel assignment. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and made me feel at home. Very quiet motel with a sweet suite with a kitchenette so eating out can be a minimum. There are super eating places close, if you choose. Definitely recommend it. Sean, the manager is great, as is Gabe and Jonathan, the desk clerks, and Jody, the breakfast cook is amazing!! Super hot breakfast and Very comfortable beds. I plan to return when in the area!

    My wife had been driving over 30 hours and was not feeling well. She tried to secure a room at the Comfort Inn early, however, they were rude and would not let her check in early. She went to the Best Western and could not have been treated any better. She arrived early and Colton, the manager, had a room cleaned for her and Jodie and another young lady, whose named she cannot remember, were so nice and understanding. All of the employees were great. Will stay there again. Room rate was reasonable. Room was very clean and nice. Lobby was nice and outside appearance was above average and had the look of a lodge. Large selection on breakfast bar and the food was hot and good.

    Excellent staff, clean rooms, and overall good value. The breakfast was standard fare, could use some real oatmeal, but the staff was excellent. Jodi even managed to find some band aids and patch up my roommate.

    « Good Stay »

    My friend was travelling across the country, and i decided to use some of my free nights for his final night stay before he reached his destination. Stated one of the highlights was the whirlpool tub which he was most looking forward to due to the fact he was so sore from the long car drive. Said the bed was insanely comfy and the room/staff were wonderful.

    « I loved the room and the front desk attendant was polite. In the morning i felt at home and i look for that in a hotel. »

    I stayed in room 123 and I loved it!! The room smelled nice when I walked in. I was greeted with manors and everyone was so polite and kind. The only problem I had was that the pool room door was shorted and I'm not sure if its fixed now, but everything made up for it. I will definitely be staying again.

    « Cute place »

    So here's what kept this from being an excellent review: the shower was really sluggish in draining so u had to stand in several inches of water and I gross out about things like that. Also we went to breakfast a little after 6 and everything warm was already wiped out including coffee. So We had cold foods which is fine and waited around til almost 630 thinking someone would come to refill it because the lady came and checked it. When the food is actually there, they have bacon, eggs, gravy, potatoes etc. but we just saw crumbs of that! Finally when we were checking out they couldn't print me a receipt showing I had a zero balance or showing the rate I was charged (89.00 which I was very happy with) so I'm hoping for the best that they are on the up and up and will be honest about this transaction since I have nothing to prove it.

    « Very Nice Hotel! Loved our stay!!! »

    We arrived early the day of the Eclipse and they were able to get our room ready for us long before check in! This is a very nice, clean hotel. Our room was great. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast area is a little small, but we ate early. They had great choices for breakfast. The front desk staff were all very nice. We took advantage of the hot tub and pool area. If travelling thru Nebraska we would definitively stay here again!

    « Hotel needs updating »

    Hotel needs a thorough cleaning and updating. Staff needs to present a more professional appearance. Room had an odor of mold/mildew. Breakfast area was cramped, No TV channel guide was available, either printed or online. Had stayed here a couple years ago and hotel was in much better condition.

    « Nice hotel in a great location »

    After 8 hours of travelling, this was a welcome break. The hotel was situated amongst some good restaurants and a short walk over to Cabela's. The staff was not overly enthusiastic, but did tier job. The room was nice and comfortable. I would stay here again if convenient in future travels.

    Stopped in Sidney on our car trip from Fl to WY. With dog not too many choices. Sidney has a special attraction-the Cabela home office and story which is right next to this Best Western We are big fans of Best Western usually but this was an exception. Good location, clean large room. good internet service and typical breakfast. Only down side was a less than attentive staff. Seemed to be understaffed. Still we would go back

    « OK hotel, but staff needs help... »

    A nice, clean hotel with good location and attractive rates. However, I had numerous small problems which the staff was unable to correct. For example, like in many hotel rooms the lighting was marginal to begin with, and to add to the problem one desk lamp was missing a light bulb. They could not locate a light bulb...and we had to change rooms to get a working lamp! When I tried to use Best Western's own gift cards to pay for the stay, the staff was unfamiliar with the redemption procedures and I had to wait for the day manager to untangle to resulting billings. I don't want to knock the BW Sidney Lodge too badly, it's an attractive, modern facility with a decent breakfast included at reasonable rates. But they might want to take time to train their staff better on the simple stuff.

    « Blood on the sheets »

    Property looks good from the outside. Checked in and went to room. As I turned the covers down to check the bed I noticed some spots that looked like blood. When I turned down the sheets there were steaks of what looked like blood. The pillow cases also had smudges. The bed had not been cleaned since the last use, just made up. I took the sheet to the front desk and asked if this was normal. The clerk apologized and said she would talk to the housekeeping staff. She asked me if the other bed was clean??? I asked for all new bedding for my room. She went in the back and brought it out to me. So I had to go back and make up my own room. Never offered to do ANYTHING for me. Was worried all night about the skeevy room. In the morning the breakfast area is so small that only three families could be seated. The A/C in the area was dripping water on the floor so they had towels packed around it. Happy to leave this place. NEVER STAY HERE.

    The hotel was nice and clean. We slept comfortably on tbe bed as well. The breakfast was ok, could do better. If you are a breakfast person who enjoys to eat a hearty breakfast i would go out somewhere else. I would return to this hotel and recommend it. Tip: There is a great mexican restaurant across the street called, Margaritas. It was excellent! Check the Yelp reviews if you dont believe me.

    « A welcome surprise in Nebraska »

    After some unremarkable stays in Nebraska it was a pleasant surprise to drive up to the BW in Sidney. The lobby is gorgeous with plenty of comfortable seating and a wonderful balcony. The indoor architecture reminded me of a hotel in Santa Fe or Taos, not Nebraska. Breakfast buffet was generous. Our room was clean, spacious and we could even open the window for fresh air. My only complaint is that wifi was not strong in the room. However, it worked well in the lobby.

    The rooms that we booked were not available when we arrived. First I was given a room that was an office room.

    We stayed here the night before a National Guard family picnic, after driving the width of Nebraska. We arrived at about 11 PM, and the front desk was cheerful and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable, and quiet. The complimentary breakfast had a good selection, and there were signs with tips on how to make a breakfast sandwich. I particularly liked that the décor of the common areas was open; the nice wide stairway was easier to find that the elevator.

    Stayed at this hotel a year ago and had one of the best experiences at any Best Western. This year couldn't wait to return. So disappointed in the way the hotel has deteriorated. There wasn't air-conditioning in the lobby, elevators and the hallways. Apparently the hotel is under new ownership. If they do not fix these issues I am sure other customers will not return...

    This hotel really exceeded our expectations. After being in several hotels during our long vacation we were very happy to have stopped at this Best Western for our family of 4. We chose the king one bedroom suite and it was huge! Plenty of space for our two boys and for all of us to spread out. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, Wifi and hotel pool. I would absolutely stay here again if we head back West in the future.

    I found a Large BUG in the bath tub, collected it and took it to the employee at the front desk. He says, "Oh they are harmless we've had them show up all summer, not sure where they are coming from. Employee offers to get Haley the evening manager from the back. Haley says, "I can't reduce the cost of your stay because that would make the owners MAD. My expectation, the room will be clean, no bugs! Requested Owners contact information. Haley was unable to provide it, would have to get it from the morning manager. At check out, the morning managers explanation was an exterminator had been there so nothing could be done. All of these staff people lacked training and maturity. Haley offered to give POINTS toward another stay if I joined the Best Western program, NO WAY!!! Never at Best Western AGAIN!

    Beware the hotel is under new management and the employees are willing to inform you that is Why... The AC is nearly off in the Loby or Why the breakfast service is taking an hour to get the items on your plate to look like a breakfast that was ready to serve. Sub par experience not typical of my genrealy business use of Best Western.

    Nice size parking lot! Check-in was prompt and friendly. I was impressed with the lobby and atmosphere. Rooms were clean and the ac worked well. Breakfast was standard fare...eggs, cereal, coffee, waffles, etc. The workout room was standard as well. We booked our reservation in advance on Travelocity for a rate of $74.79 not including taxes. At this rate, it was a solid value. At "rack rate"with no advanced reservations, this property would be expensive for what you receive...

    « Not a restful sleep »

    Bathroom floors we crawling with ants, dirty with hair and other debris. Bathroom ceilings were rusted with spots of mildew. Anyone walking above your room caused squeaking that keeps you awake and in our case, that was almost all night long.

    « Average hotel - expensive for this level of hotel. »

    Friendly check in, lobby and halls were very hot. Room was large and clean with a tiny bathroom. Air conditioner worked well. Breakfast had the traditional offerrings (eggs/sausage/cereal etc.) The two hotel ice machines were empty. The buffet attendant tried to help but the kitchen only had a cup of ice to give. The lobby was very nice in appearance. Based on price - I'll try another hotel next time.

    This was one of many hotels we stayed at during a trip for a funeral. The staff was friendly and welcoming and the wheelchair accessible room was very nice. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the morning before hitting the road again. There is an indoor pool at the property, but after a long day on the road the noise level with all the kids was more than we were up for. If you are traveling with children there were lots of other kids around (at least the night we were there).

    « OK Hotel »

    My brother & I stayed here 3 nights. This was based on his recommendation as he had stayed here several times in the past. We had requested ground floor rooms when we made our reservation. Which we did get. Our rooms had two Queen beds, microwave & refrigerator. My brothers room door, the magnetic lock wouldn't release properly and he had to basically kick the door to get it to open. I had the same issue with mine several times. He reported it to the floor desk but it wasn't fixed while we were there. I wasn't to impressed with the shower head in my shower. Very weak stream. The breakfast was ok when there was food. Several mornings many of the breakfast items had run out and the attendant was slow to get them refilled. Overall the rooms were ok for the money.

    « Nice western decor »

    This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this hotel, the 1st time since it has been a Best Western. The decor is as beautiful as ever (it was designed to coordinate with the Cabela's theme - Cabela's is just across a small lake from the hotel). Although still a nice stay, a couple of things have slipped slightly since we were there previously: We have a small dog & when we went to the pet area to walk him there were no bags (not a problem as we bring our own) & the trash can for poop bags was overflowing, with some on the ground, both in the evening & the following morning. The breakfast area was not as well-managed as it had been in the past, but it was adequate.

    I'm on crutches so walking anywhere is difficult. Here, the parking lot and portico was easy to navigate. I didn't slip, trip or fall. They keep the exterior grounds immaculate. Lobby was free of debris and clean. I navigated the lobby and hallways like a champ! The stairs are so wide! Those were clean and easy to use on crutches. I booked an accessible room. Talk about a bathroom that is gigantic. I can do a full 360 with crutches and not run into a single thing. The bars are all the way around the shower so if I want I can stand with assistance or sit on a shower chair. Either way showering is spot on and easy. Guest entry into the room is wide and clear of furniture. The doorways allow anyone on crutches or wheelchair to move about with ease. Room was clean and neat as a pin. The closet door was off the track but my husband put that back on. I suppose maintenance forgot to fix it. That was the only negative to my room. Breakfast bar is okay to navigate on crutches. The staff moves like fire for guests. It's the hotel guests that's don't move. So, keep in mind some hotel guests are not mindful. I brought my little yorkie with me so we do have a pet area. I used the stairs and out the door. The curb is awfully high. I had to walk through the grass to get to the other side. They were out of poop bags but I always ensure I have my own. Unhook the leash and let your pup run around and burn off the energy. There is plenty of space for the pups to run and frolic. Overall, we had an excellent stay minus me being on crutches. Next time, I'll be off those dastardly things and be able to do more. The setting of this hotel is quite breathtaking.

    « A few glitches, dealt with politely »

    We must have arrived on just the wrong day. The room that they gave us first hadn't been cleaned. The second room was an upgrade and clean. There were only about 3 towels that were available in the pool area - we are a family of four. The staff apologized - the dryer was broken. Although it was a sunny day, the power went out at around 7am for about 20 minutes - tough to get ready for the day. The little glitches made our stay not so perfect. The staff seemed to try to make things better though.

    This was the nicest hotel I have stayed at in a long time. The room we had was very near the lobby, but we didn't hear ANY hallway or lobby noise. The room was virtually sound proof, and it was relaxing (as well as convenient because our dog does not like noise). The decor was very nice, the breakfast was good, and it was a comfortable place to rest after a long drive. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

    We stayed at this hotel in Sidney, Nebraska, while traveling through. The hotel is a nice 3-star quality hotel. It is very clean. Rooms are spacious, have refrigerators and microwaves, and good bathrooms. The hotel is pet-friendly. The beds are great. The major drawback is the breakfast, if you are looking for a good breakfast. They ran out of food half an hour before closing, including hot water for tea, and never replenished.

    « Nice hotel, but beware of fuel thieves. »

    We stayed one night on our way through Nebraska on the night of May 28th. I parked in the middle of the large parking lot, because I was driving a large U-Haul truck. The next morning, my fuel had gone from full to half-full, with about 25 gallons being pumped out during the night. I can only think that this is a regular occurrence done by someone that is well equipped with a large tank and mechanical pump, in that most vehicles are not able to handle that much fuel, and the amount of time it would take to siphon 25 gallons would be considerable. This review is not meant to reflect badly on the Best Western hotel. It is a notice to others that may stay there that someone is well prepared to steal fuel from unsuspecting travelers during the night. I would hope that in the near future, the Best Western would put up security cameras that cover the parking lot as well as post signs stating that activity in the area is being monitored.

    This place is a real find for those doing long distance driving. The place is attractive, clean, friendly to humans and dogs, and has nice amenities both inside and out. We appreciated that there were 2-3 restaurants within walking distance from which we could carry in food. It's very convenient to I-80, yet surprisingly quiet. We slept with the window open al night! We also enjoyed the walking paths around the Cabella's headquarters and pond nearby. The experience was certainly a cut above our prior road trips!

    « It's a Keeper! »

    This hotel has many different options and configurations of rooms. Some rooms are suites with kitchens and contain multiple bedrooms. Some contain jetted tubs in the room, like ours did. It also had a king bed facing a large picture window instead of parallel to it. We were upgraded to this room because the previous room with 2 queens had a slight problem with one of the bed frames -- which they quickly fixed. The room amenities were superior in every way and the rooms are kept updated. The room was very quiet. In the morning, we met a family who had stayed in the next room during night, with multiple small children. We didn't hear a peep! Lots of choices on the food. The biscuits and gravy were particularly good. They also had a green chili which went well with the scrambled eggs. Potatoes were good. Jody was the breakfast manager. She was kind and went out of her way to be serviceable and see what we needed. She was only focused on one thing which was serving us. For the money I couldn't ask for more value. They met their goal of pleasing the customer. This hotel is a keeper. The other hotels that are keepers (also going from west to east on Interstate 80) are the Best Western Dunmar Inn in Evanston, Wyoming, the Best Western Plus in Lincoln Inn and Suites in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the Steeplegate Best Western plus in Davenport, Iowa.

    « Last minute stay was a hit! »

    After traveling all day, I decided last minute to stay at the Best Western Plus Sidney Lodge. Who know it was originally the hotel owned by Cabella's Sporting Goods for their world headquarters next door? The front desk representative, Tiffany, could not have been nicer. She went out of her way to assist and answer questions before I even asked them. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the complimentary in-room waters and cheese popcorn were a huge hit! Breakfast offered a large variety and although it was listed as opening at 6AM, they were ready for guests at 5:30AM when I departed. Although not a new property, I would highly recommend the BW Plus Sidney for it's customer service and clean, comfortable accommodations. They are a dog friendly hotel too!

    The best thing about this hotel was the staff! Big shout it and thank you to them! They were super accommodating; we were a bit high maintenance since there were many of us there for a wedding and we made many requests which they happily fulfilled. Andrew at the front desk was truly the best and always smiling and ready to help. The breakfast was adequate, the waffle iron didn't seem to cook waffles too well. The best thing about breakfast was the attendant, Jodi. She was super friendly, did her job well and was genuinely interested in the people she was serving. The room was nice but the bathroom and sink area was a bit small. The room was clean and beds were comfy. The pool area is large, the hot tub wasn't very warm and some of the jets didn't work but the kids still loved it. Overall this is a nice mid class hotel and we had a great stay.

    « Good for a quick stay »

    This hotel is located right off the interstate so it makes for a good option when traveling. I arrived in Sidney around 7pm so I really just needed a place to stay until I got back on the road the next morning. The price seemed high considering it's in a small town (I paid $160) and right along the interstate. The lobby was clean and decorated in a mountain/cabin feel, and the front desk lady was extremely friendly. The room was standard, beds were comfortable. The bathrooms could use some remodeling/upgrading. If I were traveling alone I may feel a little uncomfortable here. There were a lot of construction workers staying here (nothing against them) and each time I'd go out in the hallway a different man was roaming the hall.

    « If you have to keep giving discounts, it's time to make some changes! »

    Not sure where to begin, so I will just do pros and cons. PROS: - The desk clerk was great, very friendly and tried her best to be helpful. - The showers drained adequately. - The beds were super comfortable. CONS: - My husband didn't get to enjoy the comfy bed. He was up all night making sure our vehicles were secure because there was a group of young men from a moving company loitering in the parking lot and smoking weed in their van all night long! At 3 am he found them hanging around our car. When he confronted them, they said they were just "checking out" our classic car. We brought this issue to the attention of the desk clerk earlier in the evening, and she said she would "keep an eye on the parking lot," but unfortunately this did not solve the problem. - I always check the sheets, and this time we found some body hairs. The desk clerk immediately came and changed the sheets for us. (Again, this girl really tried her best.) - The carpets were heavily deodorized. I am sensitive to smells and this was just overpowering. We opened the window and turned on the a/c which helped a bit. I had to take a benadryl due to the reaction from the fragrances (itching, hives, burning eyes). This could be a concern for anyone with chemically triggered asthma. Like other reviewers, we were also given a coupon when we reported the problems. This was very considerate, but I feel the hotel would do better to just fix the problems instead of discounting everyone!

    « Unsatisfactory »

    I came in to pick up my daughter and the weather was awful and the location of the motel is right off the interstate easily assessable. The parking lot was empty when I pulled in. I wish I had kept going to the next motel. The front desk staff was sitting out front at a table visiting with a group and waited till I was almost to the front desk before being spoken to. I felt that the price was very high I was told they only had the upper price rooms available like the king suites and felt I was mislead about the rooms availability and the overall price.The sheet had dried blood on it and had not been changed unfortunately it was not seen until the next morning when the lighting was better. The bathroom walls were covered in mold including behind and around the little mirror on the wall. The breakfast was luke warm and the waffle machine cooked gooey waffles so they were not eatable. When told about the room the next morning I was given a discount and coupon to help with my dissatisfaction and I appreciated that and the staff was very apologetic and I was not looking for any of that. I felt that they needed to be aware of this so it does not happen to another guest.

    This may be the most amazing Best Western I've ever stayed. Granted, it's a Best Western Plus.

    We had selected the neighboring Hampton Inn for this stop during our pre-trip planning but didn't know about Best Western's $50 gift card for two stays in August so we stopped here instead. The Hampton Inn would have been $110 based on our internet search but we paid $140 for the Best Western. The room and common area are very nice, and the free hot breakfast was great. The hotel pool is indoor and was so cold that only my wife would stay in it (I used the hot tub instead).

    « Pluses and minuses »

    The biggest plus to this Best Western Plus is that they are very dog friendly. There are plenty of grassy areas to walk your dog; they even provide doggy bags when you walk on the grounds. Other than this huge benefit to a traveler with a dog, this just seemed an average motel with an above average cost. It was extremely hot when I traveled across the Midwest and the halls and stairways are not air conditioned. I was on the third (top) floor per my request and there were only two carts for the entire hotel and no one knew where they were so I lugged my stuff up three flights of stairs. I am a senior citizen, but physically active, so it was not impossible, but certainly inconvenient. The screen windows in the room were extremely flimsy ? a major concern if you have the windows open with dogs and/or young children in the room. The coffee pot in my room was too dusty to consider using. The staff was friendly, especially the janitorial and kitchen staff, and all wanted to meet my dog which is why I am likely to stay there again.

    Warm welcome on a really warm day put us in a fine room. I had requested two beds, but somehow we ended up with a King. Complimentary water and popcorn in the room as a welcome! The TV remote was specially wrapped in order to be "fresh." What a concept! Air conditioning in the room was okay, although it seemed a bit warm during the night. Common areas--halls, lobby, breakfast area--did not seem air conditioned. As it was over 90 degrees, this made lingering inadvisable. Breakfast was okay, and an air conditioner was chugging away, making an early-morning meal possible. I would stay here again.

And a big shout out to their wonderful manager, Matt, who helped me from start to finish with planning our family reunion there. He was always so, yes, Nebraska nice!! ;-) when I would call him and patient even when I made multiple changes over the months to our reservations. If he couldn't take my call, he would always call back in a reasonable amount of time. They were very accommodating with my slideshow I prepared and had everything out and ready on the day we used their very nice conference room. (The business center was a real plus as well).

    Best Western Plus Sidney Lodge of Sidney, NE was, for our family group of four, a very pleasant first-class experience from the moment we entered the lobby until we checked out.

Our spacious two room suite included a very cool small kitchen, a table for four, a separate computer desk, handy plugins for recharging our electronics and comfy chairs in both the living area and the bedroom.

We would love to stay here again sometime!

    We really liked this hotel as well as the restaurant across the street that gives 10% discount for hotel guests. The outside design of the building matched the Cabela's theme of the area as it is located adjacent to the Cabela's corporate headquarters. Our room was very clean and we really liked the layout of the room. Convenient access to I-80 which is currently reduced to 1 lane along this part of Nebraska.

    Close to major routes, restaurants and stores including Cabela's. Nice pool and lodge décor. Clean rooms and continental breakfast. Best hotel we stayed in for an almost 2 week trip. A pleasant surprise.

    The hotel staff was very friendly. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were very dark and definitely need some updated lighting. I stayed 3 nights, only one day the room was cleaned. I really look forward to maid service and was quite disappointed when my room was overlooked. The breakfast was lacking but it was considered continental so overall ok, i suppose. The location is good.

    Nice place to rest and get rid of the road weary.Quiet clean bright room, hot shower, big fluffy towels. We walked to Cabelas just to say we had been there. There is a Perkins restaurant just across the parking lot and we had the best chicken pot pie. Ever. I bought 3 cookies and got 3 free. Special at the end of the day?Doesn't matter they were delicious. Our bed was very comfortable the pillows could be softer. Even though it was storming, we slept like logs. Nice breakfast in the am. Lots of choices.

    The staff, service and quality of this hotel exceeded our expectations. We were driving on I-80 and needed a place to stay and were very happy with this choice. Breakfast choices were much better than most chain breakfasts -and the attendant was constantly being sure everything was fresh and available. The hotel also offers discounts for some surrounding restaurants, which was an added plus.

    We were exhausted when we arrived...but felt rested when we left. Nice staff at the desk gave us a good rate. Our room was so comfy with a nice chair and footstool, the bed and bedding were excellent even a cozy blanket to wrap up in to watch the news. It was so quiet you couldn't hear any other guests at all. The breakfast was way above the typical fare (which was all there) and included things like peanut butter, cheese slices, 2 kinds of gravy for the biscuits and 6 toppings for the waffles like chocolate chips, strawberries and chopped pecans. Plus the coffee was excellent! Highly suggest you stop here if you're in town.

    IT IS TRUE! This Best Western Plus Lodge in Sidney is probably the BEST B/W we've ever stayed at (& we have stayed in MANY B/W Motels.) The exterior is so fitting for the West with the Log Lodge Look. The breakfast is one of the best for us with SO many choice like Soy Milk or hot Salsa or really good fried potatoes. The bed was SO comfortable and I got a really GREAT night's sleep. The lobby even has a stuffed animal old west look. Tip: the store Cabela's was begun in Sidney, NE & there is a Cabela's only 3-4 blocks away from the lodge.

Monica, please forgive me. I promised I'd write a review for you. It's been about 3 months, but I didn't forget!) Service was incredible. She set us up with a 2 room suite for a great deal. We had plenty of room for the kids, the pool was great, and breakfast was ready in the AM. Great travel stop for weary families! Thank you!

    Years ago when we first came this way we were SO excited to see a Brick and Mortar Cabelas...I think there was a Motel 6 and that was about all. Now the place is awash in motels and restaurants but we have finally had to admit that our Cabela days are pretty much over...no more back packing, camping, trekking...just too old. The Best Western Lodge was a very nice stop, the motel is clean, beds are comfortable and the staff are all welcoming and friendly.

    We received a room at end of hallway on first floor, room was clean and nice, but bathroom needed a touch more attention, being close to the entrance door just outside our room made for a very long night with not much sleep. Children were running up and down hallway on second floor all the way till 10pm. Drunk couple at 3am being loud coming in entrance door sounded like they were coming into our room. Guest guide in room said pool was open at 6am but sign on pool door says 8am.

    « Good Best Western »

    Stayed here on 2 different occasions for a work trip and both trips were for 5 days total. The hotel offers a good quality room at best western standards. They offer a basic breakfast (waffle maker, yogurt, cereal) and always have coffee down stairs. The lobby kind of has a cabin/rustic feel to it, but being next to Cabelas it is very ideal. The rooms are modern and the bathrooms basic. The service at the hotel was friendly on both the times I stayed at this property. I would deftinitley recommend staying at this hotel if you are traveling to Sidney. It is probably the best place to stay and there is not many hotels in the area.

    Everything was great about our stay. Location was close to the interstate. Hotel staff is awesome. We were VERY pleased that the pool and hot tub were open until midnight and reopened again at 8am, one of our favorite ways to relax on trips.

    « Really enjoyed my stay. »

    The hotel is one of 2 near the famous Cabela's ...and this is reflected in the décor....it's sort of hunting lodge-ish with lots of wood and stuffed animals. The first thing to be noted is the staff are one of the best things about the hotel...from reception to cleaning/catering staff everyone is friendly and helpful. There was a fairly large upgrade of the lobby area taking place during my visit but at all times the level of dust and noise was kept to an absolute minimum. The room was large and spotlessly clean , The breakfast was kept warm and plentiful despite the fact that the normal breakfast area was closed. Pool and gym were fine.....a small quibble though....why 8am for the pool when the gym is open 24hrs and breakfast is served from 6.30? All in all ...an excellent small friendly hotel....would recommend it to anyone who is passing through Sidney!

    « DISAPPOINTED STAY »

    We have stayed here several times and have felt that the quality has gone downhill. There was trash in our room, the wallpaper was peeling and there were unclean places all over the bathroom. The price was much higher than other higher quality places that I have stayed, but that is probably because of the out in the middle of nowhere location. The breakfast is good, and the lady who is charge of it is very professional. The clerk that checked us in was one of the most unprofessional that I have been in contact with. The pool has an adult only time which was nice.

    « Best of the West? »

    We stayed for one night at the BW Plus while ticking items off of our NE ?want to see? tour and on our quest to check Mount Rushmore off the bucket list while we live within striking distance. The hotel has the ?faux lodge? décor but, so does all of Sidney, home of the original Cabela's and there is just no escaping it while you visit the area. We landed the ?executive suite? which is a larger room with a king bed. It is on the second floor and while larger and obviously with an updated remodel, the downsides are it's close to the elevator and the stairs and hovers over the morning breakfast buffet dining area, lethal if children are scampering about yelling while waiting for mom and dad to down their caffeine to prepare themselves for the day ahead. Positives: -Friendly front desk staff -Room clean -We don't ?do? the breakfast buffets at hotels because I have many food allergies, but the BW looked like they put forth a worthy effort for a small town -Convenient location -Appears to have been recently renovated Detractors: -Expensive for the location and the quality of the property, they consider it a "tier 4" (not in my rating system!!) -Mismatched décor choices and some minor maintenance (e.g. caulking in bathroom) that needed attention, but nothing glaring -Room location, yet, our choice, we could have opted to move to a smaller and older room -LOUD geese and highway noise, not sure if this was only our room location, but worth inquiring at check-in because both persisted throughout the night -Beds are NOT comfortable

    « $180? »

    This review is filtered through the lens of the price. Remember folks, we are talking about Sidney Nebraska. The people are nice here and very hard working but a hotel here should not cost more than a major city or an area on the beach. The room is average frankly. I've stayed in hundreds of rooms like this for $100 less. Kind of strange, it has a armoire instead of a closet which isn't what I would expect from a room this price. Generic coffee instead of a top brand like Starbucks. There was dirt on the carpet, dead flies around the window, sheets put on backwards with black hairs on them, dirty caulk in bathroom. Sure these are all nitpicky things but again, $180? Now let me get to the breakfast. The eggs were so rubbery and obviously instant that they were inedible. Below average quality sausage. Plastic and paper bowls and plates with white plastic silverware. Instant oatmeal? $180 a night we should have fresh oatmeal and fresh eggs. No fresh fruit other than bananas. Coffee in paper cups. The workout facilities were sadly lacking. The room was small and very hot with low ceilings. Impossible to do chin ups with the chin up bar AT ceiling level. There was a weird off brand universal cable weight machine that I honestly could not figure out. There were 2 off brand treadmills and a stair master knock off. No yoga type rubber mats and not enough room to use them even if they provided them. No free weights. I went into the pool/hot tub room and the lights were off and I could not for the life of me figure out where the switch was so.... no hot tub for me. Pros: the workers at the hotel were friendly. With so many choices in area I'll be across the street next trip.

    « An oasis in Western Nebraska »

    I drove to Sidney after a 2 day stay in Rapid City, I had stayed in a historic hotel in Rapid City that was awesome and myself being a hotel snob I to be honest, had low expectations for a best western. I was blown away by this hotel though. It was lovely. First of all the rooms are quite large. It was also pet friendly which was hard to find in Sidney Nebraska. The bed was comfortable and I slept like a baby. There was a large area that i could walk my dog and had a trash can for dog waste (i know that sounds like not a big deal but many hotels forget that). I usually stay in Hilton's and W hotels in larger city's and my trip through the western US was filled with hotels that I would not normally stay at but this hotel made me see that perhaps I am doing myself a disservice not looking into this chain at least. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I was ever in the Sidney NE, area, the hotel staff was polite and even played with my small dog Bella and gave her treats. The hotel staff always smiled and said hello even the cleaning staff which in my experience never says hello anywhere! My only negative experience in the hotel was that they had a large deer head on the wall and what looks like a taxidermied bear. I prefer my wild animals alive and beautiful; I think its a bit distasteful however I also realize that this hotel is next to a large corporate hunting store, I believe Cabella's so I do get why they would have them. Bottom line; I felt safe, and snug in this hotel and would recommend it to anyone who was staying in the area.

    « Hotels in Sidney charge higher rates »

    This Best Western was nice and like other BWs accept pets, which is good, but they charge a higher pet fee than others and also have a higher rate for nightly stays. What makes Sidney so special they can get away with charging higher rates? The room was fine although I was told that the higher rate was because it was an "executive" room and as such was bigger than a regular room. The room size seemed pretty standard to me although it was clean, had a microwave and fridge, so maybe other rooms don't have them? Overall, the hotel was nice, had a lodgey feel and everyone was friendly. Could not access internet in the room. Breakfast is served in the lobby which is weird and seemed uncomfortable but since the breakfast offered was pretty unappealing, I skipped it and chose to find food elsewhere.

    « "Hunting Lodge Feeling" »

    What terrific hotel accommodation we had in Sidney, NE at the Best Western Plus Lodge. Did not expect it to have the feel of a hunting lodge, but it did and the ladies at the front desk were "super" nice and accommodating to us. Our room was very nice, clean, comfortable and my husband enjoyed the hot tub while I did laundry. The hotel was next to the Cabela hunting store, which is awesome in itself and a "must" see if you are in Sidney, NE. Breakfast was filling and just the right selection for travelers. No complaint about this lovely lodge/hotel.

    « This hotel DOES NOT live up to a PLUS rating. »

    This is a PLUS hotel, which means they are a cut above other Best Western hotels'. I have stayed at numerous Best Western hotels and Sidney's PLUS is not reflected within the realm of the layout of the lobby and breakfast area. Thus, I would rate this hotel on a standard level. This hotel is overpriced for Sidney, NE. It's the easy on/off location of I-80 that drives the price higher. The breakfast area does not have its' own room; but, is in within the lobby as you first walk into the hotel. You find people checking in/out, while others are eating at tables. The only thing that divides the breakfast area from the front desk is an open staircase. The downside of this hotel is the lack of an enclosed breakfast room and their food selection.Within the breakfast area there was no offering of decaf coffee. You had to leave your table, walk across the open lobby and front desk, where guests were checking out, to fill your cup and spill some of it upon your return. No sausage patties, as served in other Best Western brand hotels. Only one variety of yogurt...strawberry. And...very limited seating. Because of the few number of tables (does not reflect enough seating for a hotel of this size) people had to carry their plates across the room, through guests walking in/out to their cars. Plus, the big screen TV was in the breakfast area, where you have to sit on hard chairs, and not in a location of more comfortable chairs and better viewing. Is this hotel deserving the rank of a PLUS hotel? I think not. On the plus side, the woman who ran the breakfast was fantastic...very attentive.
