Rainbow House is the hospitality house for the families whose children are receiving treatment at Children's Hospital.
A true home away from home, with famliar faces to greet you, homemade food in the fridge and on the table, and everything else that goes a long way to making things normal when they are far from that. There is a playground for the kids outside, a playroom inside, and a computer room for the moms and dads to use for sending health updates and getting the news they want from home.
For all this, all that is asked is for $5/day donation.
WE ARE PLANNING ON STAYING HERE in a couple of months. then I will update this site with better information. However we selected this motel as it does look real nice.
The rates: I asked for rates for May of 2006 for one couple in a non-smoking room with one bed. The rates are: $74.95 per night. However with a discount such as AAA or AARP, it would be $67.96.
Check out their website.
Its a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of Omaha, yet its only 5 or ten minutes from Omaha.
They have a regular theme park here. Swimming pool and water slides; Equestrian center; pony rides for the kiddies; Horse drawn carriage rides for all. There is an ice rink, and a lodge. The whole park is well cared for and the people were very pleasant.
-Omaha lodging (if your on a greyhound lay over)
Big motel accross the greyhound station on 17th and Jackson (like 8.99 a night) they have a sign thats how I know

-Satilitte at 60th and Q 33.95 funny looking, but looks kept up
-Economy inn 34.95 sign says at 18th and douglas downtown near the greyhound
The closest hostel I am aware of is in Lincoln, about a 45 minute drive from the edge of Omaha. Lincoln is worth the visit, but much smaller than Omaha.
You can have an intersting experience if you stay at the Satellite Motel on L street. This place has been frozen in time from the 1960s. It's reasonably clean, but not exactly 'high-class'. If you are a business traveller, or just a snob, there are corporate hotels of all kinds here.
Hotels aren't exactly cheap here, as there generally aren't enough of them... If you are willing to stay in suburbia (gack!), there are more reasonable options.
