      The price and location made us book; the awesome hotel will make us come back! Free cookies and hot dogs upon check, a free breakfast of biscuits and gravy, big flat screen tv in the room, double sinks (made it really nice with 3 girls all trying to get ready at the same time to go out on the town), etc. I will definitely stay here again, and recommended it to everyone I saw at the Christmas party that night!

      If you're a light sleeper, you might have trouble with the train track that runs next to the hotel.

      Courteous, friendly recognized us when stayed a second night on the return trip. Room clean. Bfst was OK

      We stayed on the first floor, upstairs occupants arrived very late, were noisy and bang things around, had TV on loud for most of the night. Did not have restful sleep, especially needed for a 12 HR drive the next day. Not sure what can be done by the Inn. Occupants are sometimes not very considerate.

      The breakfast was great !!

      The lady at the front desk was rude! They never got my reservation and the 150 hold on the card is dumb!!

      It's on the side of town that has been forsaken because of the new casinos on the other side of town but it is a good value as far as the rooms and the staff. Right next to railroad tracks but not too many trains use it.

      Clean, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and supper/evening snack. Even fresh-baked cookies!!

      Location was out of the way.

      Ground floor room.

      I had the false notion that it'd be charming. On the contrary, it's merely ordinary and an inflated price.

      Much better than low budget big chain motel for the area. Close to the Freeway.

      You get way below quality compared to western states and cities for 3 stars. Well off the beaten path. Too close to freeway noise.

      Convenience - easy to get to/from Quiet - despite being close to the turnpike, I was not aware of noises of traffic traveling on the interstate Friendly/helpful staff

      Not a fan of biscuits and gravy for breakfast - glad bagels were offered.

      Very nice motel. We will look for Western Inn on our way to Az. This winter. The ammenities were a nice surprise.

      Bathroom floor needs to be cleaner. Please throw away towels or washcloths that are stained.

      The pool was nice

      I booked in january, 2012 - 2 dbl bed non smoking room arrived in june, 2012 to heavy smoking room with king bed, you could not walk on carpets barefoot because of dirty carpets. The toilet barely flushed, the sink barely drained water. Management was not able to keep their word, I was there for 4 day stay and still was not moved to the non smoking room at anytime of my stay. They have you on the hook knowing that nashville was extremely busy during that weekend and you have no where else to go.

      The facility is really old but really clean. The staff was very helpful and nice. The place was being painted on the outside when we were there. Only place I have ever been where they have hotdogs and cookies for dinner (great for the kiddos). Awesome Breakfast. The carpets and bed were clean and comfortable. A very nice bar/grill next door....kid friendly. Convience store right in parking lot, as well. There is a pool there that looked very, very nice. We did not swim there but walked in there and it was very clean looking. It was indoor and warm.

      And old motel and if you are looking to complain about something this is the place for you. The price was right. Other than that I would stay there again.

      We were in Council Bluffs for a funeral and selected Western Inn for its accessibility to the funeral home and also price. We were very pleased with the service, room, breakfast, everything. What a bargain. We would definitely stay here again.

      Was very clean nice continental breakfast and close to place we needed to be at for our event. Was close to interstate exits.
