Our History

Sandhills Suites

Sandhills Suites was built in 1908 in downtown Burwell, Nebraska on the South side of the Square. The hotel was originally 25 rooms and built to accommodate the bustling economy of the time. It was filled with traveling sales people, cowboys, migrating families, and railroad employees.

The Hotel and adjoining Cafe were purchased at auction in 1990. The hotel needed work as it had sat vacant for a year and there were some much needed repairs. The new owner took the 25 room hotel and renovated it into a 10 room apartment building. It operated as apartments until the 2018-2021 renovations that you see now. Now all rooms are furnished with a total of 10 nightly rentals available.

The new owners restored the original hardwood floors and brought the decor up to date. Each room is furnished with a big screen TV, Queen Size bed, in the separate bedroom as well as a queen pull out couch and modern kitchenette.

Amenities include free WiFi, Locally brewed Coffee, on street parking and access to dining at many downtown restaurants. We also hav a specialty boutique in the lobby for some great shopping to add to your experience.
