Staff was friendly, pool was nice and warm. They accepted pets, which we appreciated. Grounds were pretty nice - a few cig butts on the parking area, but grass was nice and green.Beds were of average comfort. It looked as if a renovation had perhaps begun, as the carpet looked new and didn't quite match the existing furnishings. The only thing I found odd and to be a quick fix was the PTAC unit in the room must not have fit perfectly, and to fill the gap, they had used wads of kleenex. The kleenex is OK as a air leak insulator, but perhaps consider covering it with some duct tape to make it look better? The free breakfast was quite simply, waffle, cold cereal, and toast, but for the price of the rooms - was acceptable. Neighbors were a bit noisy, and were in and our of their room all night long, doors slamming, etc. I would consider staying here again.
I was content with our short, one-night stay and the breakfast was comparable good for the reasonable price. We stay at hotels such as Super8, Rodeway Inn, and Econolodge. We checked in after midnight so I did not mention our dog since it was cool enough for him to remain in the car. At our 8 a.m. check-out, the manager told me of the $10 "on property" pet fee. I had to insist that the rules stated "in room" cleaning not "on property". Based on the manager's response to my gratitude, I was not sure the fee would be waived the next time we stayed. I was uncomfortable to ask about the next time which would have been the following weekend, so I reluctantly chose to go with Super8 which has comparable rates for Kearney. If it were not for the "on property" pet fee, I would have gladly returned to the Western Inn South. I believe its rate is a fair price for a short overnighter especially since it has a relatively quality breakfast included.
