There are good options in Omaha with a one hour commute.
I'll be heading to the game with 2 other guys. Had this planned out for a while but have been lazy on the hotel for saturday night. Got a sweet deal on sideline tickets. But the hotel prices are crazy. Want to stay in Lincoln so we can stay and tailgate a little later and go out for more after. Don't care what reviews the hotel has or if its a -1 star just somewhere to crash when its over. Plan B is Omaha but will wait until have to.
We just cancelled our one room for Friday and Saturday at the Comfort Inn to take the Marriott option. It was $199/night. Worth looking into.
300 a night I guess is too much.
