See the Best of Kearney, Nebraska from Hotel's Location
Book your vacation early to avoid missing the migration of the Sandhill Cranes, which brings the birds to Kearney, Nebraska every February. The hotel's location just off I-80 makes it easy to get to the Rowe Sanctuary if you want to see the birds in their natural habitat, and a nearby Cabela’s sporting goods store can provide you with binoculars if you need them. If you're traveling with the whole family, don't miss an afternoon at the Fort Kearney Museum and the Great Platte River Road Archway—both within a ten-minute drive of the hotel.
