    I have stayed at the Comfort Inn at the Junction of I-80 and Hwy 83. It's right by the war memorial. It was nice.

    There is a Hampton Inn that is very nice and pretty comparable for rates. Quality Inn is not the best, but check out the restaurant there, The Canteen.

    We bunked there on our way home from Arizona on Spring Break. I don't know about "nice", but it was OK and reasonably priced. There are quite a few chain hotels at that exit, plus I noticed a ton of mom & pop motels when we went north into town for food. I would imagine those were cheap...

    Call Erin Andrews from ESPN. She has an idea of what hotels to not stay in.

    Don't know when you're going, but I strongly suggest making a res. Four years ago we were coming home from vacation and decided to overnight in Kearney. I told the wife that we shouldn't need a res in Kearney. Low and bedhold, the friggin biggest girls HS bball summer tourney was in town. I still hear about that from Mrs Cycloin.

    I stayed at the Super Eight in NP and the front desk was behind bullet proof glass. I think that's a bad sign.

    Re: Hotel Recommendation

    Get a reservation early.

    Don't make the same mistake I did last time I was in that part of the country and push in to western Nebraska at 1 AM during the state softball tourney during a torrential rain-storm. We ended up spending $110 for a hotel room at the Grey Goose Lodge in Ogallala that judging by the stains on the carpet and chairs appeared to have been the scene of a homicide the night before.

    I don't get it. I think Valentino's is simply awful. Plus every pizza tastes exactly the same no matter what is on it.

    I guess some context doesn't hurt here:

    1) revkah and I had a painful time when we lived in Nebraska, and Valentino's provided some real good times together in the midst of that. There's a sentimental thing.

    2) I think the different pizzas taste different, and notice a biiig difference between the Nebraska stores and the one in Ames.

    3) I'm one of the least picky people I know. In my Guard days, I would eat my MRE frankfurters right out of the dirt if they fell. I just ate Taco Johns for a mid-morning (pre-bedtime) lunch, and thought it was awesome. I'm not real picky.

    4) This is embarrassing, but I misread your post at first and thought you wrote "no matter who is on it." I was going to tell you that if you're eating people pizza, there are much bigger problems than eating at Valentino's, but another reading proved to me that I'm an idiot.
