"be aware of PRICE GOUGING. You might be wise to check other hotel prices in the area."

20/09/2018

I was charged $132.99 base rate for a room with a single king bed for a single night. The same room is listed on TripAdvisor for $80 and the Best Western site for $86. Including a pet charge for one dog, AAA discount and taxes, the total was over $160. When I asked why I was being charged 57% more than the advertised rate I was told, "there is nothing we can do about it". This hardly explains the huge difference between the advertised price and the price I was charged.This was the only hotel problem I had on my 6000 mile,16 day road trip.

"Pet Friendly Room Smelled Awful!"

1
11/09/2018

I was traveling with my dog last Tuesday, which he was in a kennel that he travels in, and when checking in to the hotel I was told there's a $20 pet fee, which I have no problem paying if the $20 is actually used to clean a pet friendly room. I stayed in room 122-A, and the smell was awful of animal. Not only did the room smell, but one of the two queen size beds smelled of urine along with the pillows, so needless to say I did not sleep in that bed. The shower curtain smelled of mold also. I understand that the person cleaning rooms can only do so much with what they are provided to clean a room with, but if there's a $20 pet fee for cleaning a room, then the hotel should provide the cleaning person with the appropriate supplies and equipment to properly clean the room, this would include cleaning the carpet. Speaking of the carpet, it was so dirty I kept my shoes on when walking around the room. If I had not been too tired after driving all day, I would have definitely complained when I got in the room. I did let the front desk person know about the smell when checking out, and she indicated that she would let the manager know. I will say that the staff was friendly when checking in, and the lobby area was clean and I cannot speak for how other rooms are in this hotel, but room 122-A definitely needs a good cleaning and deodorizing.

"A nice stay in a small town. "

We only stayed one night as we were passing through but the Best Western did not disappoint. The room was clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. It was a short walk to the Cabela's store nearby (their first ever store), and although it was just off the highway, it was quiet. I would stay again for sure.

"Dirty Underwear found under bed"

02/09/2018

The beds were comfortable and the staff seemed nice enough and friendly. When I was picking up toys and checking under the bed to make sure my kids didn't leave anything behind I found a pair of dirty underwear that did not belong to us, and had not be thrown out by house keeping. The front desk was not phased by this like it was a regular occurrence.

"Built by Cabela's Outdoor Recreational Equipment Retail Chain"

12/08/2018

Before Bass Pro bought out Cabela's Outdoor Recreational Equipment Retail Chain, they built this wonderful two-story motel in Sidney Nebraska, which at that time was their world headquarters. 24/7 gas station with diesel across the street. Nice restaurant next door. Large parking lot for RV's trucks and trailers. Friendly knowledgeable staff.

"Great Stay!"

12/08/2018

Enjoyed our two night stay here. Very pet friendly if you travel with dogs! We stayed here because of the pet friendly service. We came to Sidney NE from Idaho to pick up a new dog we were bringing home and this hotel was the perfect place with a nice grassy area for pet owners to take their dogs out as needed. Within walking distance of several restaurants that offered 10% discounts to hotel guests and next door to the famous iconic Cabela's head quarter store. Pool area was nice, kids enjoyed swimming there the lobby area was nice and

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. Check in and check out was so streamline and staff were so helpful and friendly Very clean and great breakfast It was very easy to find as it is right off the interstate

One of the nicest places I've stayed in a long time. The staff at the front desk went out of their way to satisfy my requirements. I would differently stay at this facility if passing through this area again.

"Nice clean, quiet hotel which allows dogs"

4
02/08/2018

We stayed here mid-week on a family trip with four adults and a dog. The room was spacious and clean but there was a faint lingering smell of cigarettes. We advised the desk staff that it was present at check-in as we did not want to get charged. They assured us that someone would come to the room and confirm the odor. No one showed for an hour so we called and asked them not to bother. Breakfast was standard eggs, waffles, cereals and beverages. They had fresh fruit mix out but on my first taste, I found it had gone sour. Once I let the hostess know, it was removed but they did not bring more out. :( The pool is nice and clean but cold and the whirlpool was cooler than expected. They have a nice dog walk area but the grass had just been watered and it was really soaked.

"Disappointed "

02/08/2018

During our 3 week trip from the midwest-to the west and back we have stayed on several best westerns. Was excited today to see one in the horizon as it had been a long day. When checking into a room noticed several children grabbing cookies that were supposed to be for the guests. The lady behind the desk told the children"one" and they called her mom. No tongs were used when 2 of the girls just grabbed for cookies. Later I was trying to used the laundry facilities and noticed no detergent or dryer sheets available in the machines. Went to the front desk 3 times they said they couldn't find the dryer sheets. A man sitting at the desk appeared to be waiting for one of the girls as if I interrupted them. Nice rooms, just staff needs to be managed better.

"OK Hotel If Maintained"

31/07/2018

We stayed here twice on a recent trip. Our first room was clean and everything functioned good. The room on our return trip was not very clean and the air conditioner was faulty. The front desk gave us a different room which was clean and the air conditioner functioned well. Its a charming hotel but maybe they are trying to cut maintenance and upkeep. Probably look for a different hotel in the area.

"Good Hotel"

29/07/2018

Clean, quiet, and comfortable hotel, with friendly staff. The location is great, with the interstate right there and restraunts within walking distance. I would stay here again on our next trip to Nebraska!!!

"Saturday Night Stay"

29/07/2018

Room was clean and beds were really comfortable. The breakfast was a great assortment (waffles, breads/muffins, eggs, potatoes, French toast sticks, juices, yogurts, create your own breakfast burrito, cereal, coffee bar, bacon). Decor was outdoor theme. Only thing that was disappointing was the hot tub was lukewarm and no pool towels were in the pool area, however, after making them aware , someone refilled the towels within a few minutes. Pool area was nice and kids enjoyed the pool. Friendly staff. Price was reasonable. Next to Cabela's.

"On the road again"

27/07/2018

ON our way home from frieds house. Wanted to get a head start and a cheap one. scanned the area we were going and came across this hotel. It was cheap and it served breakfast. Got in late (midnight) and knew we would so I called ahead to save a place. all worked out. Nice comphy beds and pillows were great also.

"Nice!"

1
25/07/2018

Nice, clean, friendly, quiet hotel. Our car broke down literally in the hotel parking lot. Parts had to be ordered from Denver. Best Western Sidney took care of us immediately without a reservation. We had our Border Collie with us, but that was no problem. They booked her too! Great place. Book it with confidence.

"Serious need of renovation"

2
23/07/2018

We have stayed here more than once because of location, but this last time we stayed convinced us to try some of the newer hotels in the area. When we checked in there were 4 parties in front of us trying to check in. The desk clerk was polite and professional, but another person needed to be there. Also, the pool has not worked in over two years, the room has peeling wall paper and run down furnishings.

"It's adorable!...Oh, crap..bedbugs."

2
10/07/2018

I checked in, inspected the room then promptly checked out as there was a pretty major bedbug infestation (#205). There was diatomaceous earth (powder used to treat bedbugs) on the boxspring which leads me to believe the hotel was aware of the problem. I called and spoke with a manager the next day. He was very apologetic and said an exterminator was on it. This place is adorable, reasonably priced, and the staff is friendly but do a check of the boxspring and throw your clothes in the dryer immediately afterwards as a precaution.

"Worth the money"

4
04/07/2018

This is an attractive hotel, well worth the money. We arrived late in the day, and the woman at the check-in desk was very polite and helpful. She was able to find us a room with a reasonable price. Complimentary breakfast was okay, but the oatmeal was mostly water. Otherwise, a nice variety of food.

"Great hotel"

5
26/06/2018

We were tired from traveling all day and we chose here to stay. The hotel was very nice and clean. It was very inviting and the staff were very friendly. The price was excellent for suck a nice hotel. The pool was nice but the water was a bit cold and the hot tub had just a bit too much chlorine in it but was still enjoyable. Most definitely will stay with this chain and here in Sidney if we are ever through there again.

"Great Hotel & Cheap, Too"

5
06/06/2018

Pros: located right off the freeway and with walking distance to Walmart and restaurants. Staff is extremely accommodating, friendly, & respectful. Present your room key to nearby restaurants for 10% discount. Free home-baked chocolate chip cookies and tea at the front desk. Decor is fabulous—you feel like you are in a lodge. Pretty cheap—only a few bucks more than the nearby Days Inn. Rooms are very clean, almost spotless. Breakfast is good. Will definitely stay again. Cons: no rollaway bed for two queen rooms, only the king rooms have a sofa-bed. Would have liked to have a newspaper—USA Today or even the local paper.

"Very Attractive"

4
01/06/2018

This property seems to be fairly new with a very attractive lodge-style exterior. The interior is clean and inviting. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast offerings were diverse and tasty. However the eating area is a bit compact, but very comfortable. Discounts at Perkin's and Applebee's could be obtained by showing your room key. Access to the I-80 was ez in and ez out. Great value!!!!

"Good stay"

12/05/2018

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.

"The best in Sidney"

"Disappointing"

27/04/2018

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"

4
19/04/2018

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"

2
07/04/2018

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"

21/03/2018

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"

3
27/01/2018

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.

"Excellent"

10/01/2018

Wonderful stay. Will stay again! In Sidney for a funeral. The rooms were very nice, and clean. The staff was excellent. The breakfast was beyond compare. I would highly recommend staying at the Sidney Best Western for anyone. I will stay again!!

"Top notch hotel"

5
04/01/2018

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the past year and the reason is simple: clean rooms, comfortable beds, attractive decor, friendly staff, good location, and great value for the dollars spent.

"OutOfTheWayGem"

27/11/2017

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"

22/11/2017

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.

"Western Wonder"

16/11/2017

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"

4
07/11/2017

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"

4
01/11/2017

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"

4
31/10/2017

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"

2
29/10/2017

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"

24/10/2017

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

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"

22/10/2017

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.

05/10/2017

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.

02/10/2017

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."

01/10/2017

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"

20/09/2017

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.

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"

05/09/2017

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.

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

I always stay at Best Western. They have a great rewards program. This hotel was at a great location. They had a good breakfast and internet was available. I love having the consistency of staying at Best Western hotels every trip I make.

"OK hotel, but staff needs help..."

24/08/2017

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"

23/08/2017

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.

Excellent Stay At the Sideny Lodge. ALL including rooms was clean, nice and neat. Very friendly and helpful staff made stay even better. Ideal location just off of I-80 allowed for very easy "IN" and very easy "out" back onto the expressway. Ideal "extras" such as food, gasoline and so forth located very conveniently. right near Hotel.

17/08/2017

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. Second, I was given a room that had people sleeping in it that were naked when I opened the door. I was offered nothing in return for the awful check in. The employee said he really had no idea what to do.

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.

"Disappointed"

03/08/2017

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...

"Best place to stop in Sidney, Nebraska!"

02/08/2017

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.

"Watch OUT for BUGS!"

01/08/2017

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!

"Vacation Blues"

31/07/2017

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 Stay"

26/07/2017

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"

25/07/2017

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."

23/07/2017

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"

20/07/2017

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"

4
20/07/2017

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.

"Excellent "

18/07/2017

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.

We were heading home from being out west and stopped when we got tired. Very nice hotel. Location was great!! Lots of restaurant choices and gas stations for the next morning when we fueled up.

"A few glitches, dealt with politely"

27/06/2017

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 have stayed here a few times on our way to our daughter's. It is always clean and friendly. Breakfast is excellent. The free internet lets you plan ahead andcheck in if you need to. The beds are very comfy. It is close to the intersate highway, Perkin's, Cabella's, the new Applebee's, Walmart and gas stations. Just a short drive into town takes you to an excellent steakhouse. There are several other places to eat close by, giving the traveler many options. We enjoy our stops here. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. They are also attentive.

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."

4
15/06/2017

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.

Sean J, General Manager at Best Western Plus Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Dear Skully, Thank you for taking the time to inform us of this very unfortunate issue.

"It's a Keeper!"

26/05/2017

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.

As always, this Best Western never disappoints. It is meticulously clean, well appointed with nicely kept grounds. Sean and Gabe were excellent both on the phone and and during check in. Breakfast was one of the better BW breakfasts we've had. Jodie was a virtual humming bird as she quickly went from station to station replenishing foods and keeping everything super clean.

"A great place to stay after or before crossing Wyoming on Interstate 80"

We cross the U.S. twice a year--back and forth between Michigan and California--primarily on Interstate 80. We discovered the Best Western Sidney, NB location on this crossing. Staff was very friendly. The location was close to freeway exit and right next to a Walmart for getting food /supplies. And room has a microwave. Room was clean, beds firm and breakfast offering was high quality, fresh and in an attractive room setting. In addition this Best Western is pet friendly-- a requirement for our travel. An excellent motel and location--before crossing or after crossing the high Wyoming plains along Interstate 80,

"Last minute stay was a hit!"

28/11/2016

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!

"Awesome!"

"Pet Fee"

19/10/2016

The hotel is nice but the pet fee is way too high. If you traveling with a pet this makes this hotel nearly twice as much as other comperables. This has been my normal stop on strips from Alaska to Texas but not any more. They are hotels that equally as nice for less money and no added pet fee

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Dear Milt1, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience during your stay with us. We are sorry you found our pet fee to be high, it is however very comparable to all other properties in our area that take pets and has been the same fee for multiple years. The pet fee reflects the additional amount of time it takes to clean those rooms so that our future guests can enjoy their stay as much as you and continue to allow us to welcome pets into our great property. We do hope you will come back and see us again in the future.

The ambience and feel of this new hotel was great. The refrigerator did not work in my room, the free Wi-Fi worked great. At breakfast, the OJ was weak and a bit sour-tasting and the waffles were a bit doughy. Had an issue at check in, but the staff handled it professionally and provided a room. The room and bed was comfortable. Overall, I was happy with my experience.

While hunting antelope in nearby Sterling, CO, my son and I stayed at the Best Western Plus in Sidney, Nebraska. It was reasonably priced and conveniently located. Nearby were several very good restaurants and shopping. The room was very comfortable! We enjoyed the hot breakfast each morning that was better than many! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We have already recommended this hotel to several others, and our hunting guide has also, based on our experience.

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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment about your stay with us. We do have a great staff and we are so happy they was able to accommodate you on such a special occasion.

05/09/2016

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.

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the great feedback. We are so sorry you felt the price was high during your visit however we are very comparable to the other 7 locations around us. It is so great you enjoyed our décor. We do apologize you would have felt uncomfortable if you had been traveling alone and we will be looking into this as guest security is a major concern for us here. We do hope you will come back and see us again in the near future.

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

31/08/2016

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!

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Please accept our most sincere apologize for the issues you faced during your stay with us. We expect much better for our guests and will be using your comments to ensure all of our future guests have a superior experience. I am so happy the desk clerk was so helpful during this less than satisfactory experience. We will be sure to look into these areas so that they will not be an issue going forward.

"Unsatisfactory"

30/08/2016

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. But it's lodge-like design and feel juxtaposed to the world headquarters of Cabela's just made our stay great. Loved the indoor pool and hot tub. Great breakfast. Great room with "rustic" lodge-like appointments. Would go back in a heartbeat.

22/08/2016

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).

This is a great hotel. Convenient to the Cabela's store and has about 5 restaurants with in walking distance.

"Pluses and minuses"

21/08/2016

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.

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We apologize that the carts where unavailable upon your arrival and that it was so hot during that time. We do offer an elevator for our guests convenience, especially when traveling to the third floor as we know how difficult it can be traveling up all those stairs with luggage. It is so great you brought your dog to stay as well, we are very pet friendly and always welcome the furry family members! I will be sure to share your comments with our staff so that we may use it to better serve you and all of our valued guests in the future.

Friendly staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Conveniently located. Cool decor in the lobby. Decent serve-yourself "continental-plus" breakfast. Big parking lot. Didn't use the pool but it looked good. The region got hit with an unexpected spring blizzard when I was driving through. The hotel staff was very accommodating, letting me stay a second night. They got right on removing the snow from the parking lot as soon as it stopped falling and blowing. Hotel is within walking distance of a couple of restaurants, which is nice.

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.

We had our family reunion there this summer and the rooms, especially the suite were great. We loved the delicious (and complimentary - thank you!!) breakfast every morning and the gals who helped every morning were so nice and kept everything running smoothly. The front staff were outstanding and always so helpful and nice....a special thank you to Aaron, Kara, and Hannah and Chris! Every afternoon at the front desk was a nice dispenser of lemonade or cherry limenade and cookies (what a nice surprise and gesture - thank you!). 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). I loved how they had complimentary water and Nebraska popcorn in the rooms when we arrived. Anyway, I would highly recommend this hotel and thank you Matt for running a great place and having great staff!

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. The property really does look like a comfortable Lodge with nice rustic touches throughout the lobby. 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. All in all, it would be well suited to a several day stay with many of the comforts of home. Every staff member with whom we interacted was helpful and welcoming. I would gladly recommend this property to a friend passing through Sidney on I-80 and I will happily visit them myself at a future time.

We had a great stay. Every single person who works here went over and beyond to make sure we were happy. Jodi was especially helpful. We were welcomed to our extremely clean and comfortable rooms with popcorn and water. The hotel is located near several good restaurants and the very first Cabela's. 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.

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the convenience of our location to Cabela's and multiple restaurants. We hope you will stop again on your next trip.

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.

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for telling us about your stay. We are so glad to hear you visited Cabelas while you were in town and that you were able to try the amazing cookies at Perkins.

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.

I was traveling with my family heading east on the 80. I called ahead to see about accommodations and rates. I spoke with Monica. (There's an accent mark in there over the "i.". 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. Not sure we'll be this way again but if we are we would not hesitate to choose this motel

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.

25/04/2016

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.

18/02/2016

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!

Sean J, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the décor and that we was able to provide exceptional customer service despite the project in the lobby. We hope to see you again in the near future for another great stay! The reason for the pool having a closing time is for liability reasons and also so we can maintain the area with out bothering our guests. Also breakfast is from 6am-9:30am however we do offer to go bags for our guest that will be leaving earlier or later then the breakfast hours. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay and I will be sharing your kind words with our staff.

05/01/2016

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.

I assure you Sandra J that your experience is not the quality that we expect for our guests. I would like to discuss how we can make this up to you if you would please contact me at the hotel at 308-254-0100 and ask for Amber. Thank you for telling us about your experience.

16/11/2015

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

Peyton H, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for your most recent stay with us at the Best Western Plus Sidney Lodge. Clean rooms, friendly staff, location and our breakfast only some of the quality amenities we offer at our hotel. I am glad to hear you were able to experience our upgraded suite type during your stay, which is, in fact located in our loft area for ease of location for our guests. We do have rooms that we recommend for guests that might accommodate them with a more quiet stay, as this is a stopping point for geese on their travels south and we are conveniently located next to I-80 for our guests. With our recent renovation, we upgraded all of our mattresses in the hotel to be pillow top mattresses. We hope to see you again for future stays on other site-seeing travels you have!

"$180?"

11/11/2015

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"

03/11/2015

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.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback about our hotel and it's amenities. You are correct, a lot of our décor is similar to the Cabela's theme, as we are nearby their corporate headquarters. Aside from that, our hotel also has a lodge-like feel which offers a more homelike experience for our guests. Our team works hard to make sure our guests and their fur-guests feel welcomed and at home during their stay. Thank you for giving Best Western a chance during your travels! Next time you stay with Best Western, ask us about our Best Western Rewards program so you can earn points for your stays with us as well! We hope to see you in the future!

Really liked the appearance of the of this hotel inside and out. It reminded me of a rustic winter mountain lodge. All the staff was very kind and friendly. They even had treats and bags for the pets. It was like a home away from home.

We are happy to hear our hotel was a "home away from home" for you and your pet during your travels. Our hotel's "rustic winter mountain lodge" definitely offers a cozy, homelike feel for our travelers. We hope to see you for future stays!

I would definitely stay again at this hotel. The rooms were very nice, clean and updated. All staff was friendly and professional. I have traveled for business a lot recently and this was one of the best accommodations throughout the trip. I would chose for pleasure or business.

This is the nicest Best Western I have ever stayed at! It looks like a mountain lodge inside. The staff is all very nice, and the makes the stay even better. It is walking distance to Cabela's and a steak house that you get a 10% discount at if you show them your room key. I would definitely stay here again.

Peyton H, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Hello Kirk, I am happy to hear you had such a wonderful stay! Our hotel is very "Cabela's" themed to match the nearby business. I am also happy to hear you were able to try the local steak house, Buffalo Point, next door to us. We hope to see you again soon!

The Sidney Lodge was very clean, the food was good, the service was excellent and our room was exceptionally clean and it was a very pleasant stay. We would stay there again. We usually do try to stay at Best Western for the above reasons. Thank the people of Sidney for the friendliness, helpfulness and for an excellent place to rest two tired old bodies!!

Hello Robert, Thank you for the nice comments about our property. I am happy to hear that we exceeded your expectations during your stay. I will make sure to pass it on to my team! We hope to see you again soon!

"Hotels in Sidney charge higher rates"

08/10/2015

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.

Peyton H, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Hello Visualgirl, Thank you for your recent stay with us and comments on ways we can improve our property. We look forward to hearing what our guests have to say so we know ways we can better exceed your expectations. We offer our breakfast off of the lobby so we can more easily associate with our guests in the morning and make sure they are enjoying their stay. For all reservations, we recommend guests reserve their rooms in advance, especially since Sidney does seem to fill up faster on day of arrival. This would also help you secure lower rates as our rates and occupancy does change frequently. I will make sure to contact our internet support to ensure we are providing internet throughout the hotel. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

""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.

Peyton H, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Our lodge theme is an attribute we are proud of and does coordinate well for our area. Thank you for writing us a review of your "terrific accommodation" and recognizing our staff at the front desk as well as the housekeeping department. We look forward to being your place to stay no matter what time of year it is.

"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.

Peyton H, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sidney Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and pointing out areas of opportunity for improvement. Our yogurt choice has been based on popularity for what most travelers who stay at our hotel eat so as to not waste the other flavors that tend to expire. We do rotate our hot items every day to include a meat. If you are ever looking for specific item, be sure to ask the breakfast attendant. All of the information you have presented is great recommendations and we appreciate your time. We do hope the customer service provided will win you back to our location in the future.

The hotel was clean, quiet. Breakfast had good variety and tasted good. Restaurants are close by. Bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean. There was a whirlpool in the room and I would have preferred it be in the bathroom instead. Overall an excellent hotel. Check in was fast with a very nice person. I would definitely stay there again.
