Grand Weaver Hotel
Just Because

Is the renovation on the hotel still ongoing or is it on hold, as one recent guest stated, because the owners run out of money.
Also the guy from Florida said the only way the hotel would work, is to draw guest from big cities. How in the world is Falls City going to do this? We know how Los Vegas and Reno did this, both places in the middle of nowhere, but is Falls City ready for this?

Probably not. Just too many people question everything or put it down instead of putting all that negative energy into positive actions. Or, it could be that we are in one of the worst economic recessions in decades and no one has any money to be either investing or going to see the sights.

It's a beautiful old hotel- hope they can find a way to finish their work and keep their heads above water. This awful recession has destroyed so many great economic dreams.

It is a neat old place. The real issue is Falls City is a irrecoverable shithole. To much corruption and too many townie assholes. Rampant crime, welfare, and drug abuse with limp county and city management. There is no reason to come to falls city unless theres a power plant outage or some other type of work that is not related to the city. Id say just keep the one or two renovated floors cause thats all they will ever need.

Let me enlighten you. In any large city, rampant crime, welfare, and drug abuse. It has nothing to do with county and city management lmao. It comes from people not giving a shit, not unlike yourself!. Why don't you take a stroll down the streets around 2:30 AM and see if you can find a prostitute, gang member, hell walk across town and see if you end up mugged! Fact is, you won't find anyone at 2:30 AM. You talk about this town like it is such a terrible terrible place, my guess is - you used to be one of the townie assholes or you live in a magical city that is free from drugs & violence. Wait, it say's you live in Omaha - Drive down Leavenworth and you can find yourself a prostitute to service you, maybe then you will quick being such a ex-townie asshole. Fact is Falls City is a wonderful little city that has many good qualities, and like everywhere has it's problems as well. Unfortunately people like you - your one of the problems so please take a walk to North Omaha at 2:30 AM and oh yea - bring a bat, your gonna need it.

Omaha is a shithole too. 8 shootings this weekend. But a nice hotel doesnt struggle here. Ok the crime rate isnt rampant in FC I guess. Drug useage per capita is off the chart though Im afraid. And Falls City is not a wondeful little town. Its a shithole. Thats why a nice hotel cant survive there. Theres no reason to come stay there. Thanks for the asschewing though.

Tell me what is the drug use per capita in Falls City? What is the drug use per capita in Omaha? What is the drug use per capita in Detroit? What is the drug use per capita in NYC?

Aren't you the pot calling the kettle black with your negative comment. Why not try putting a positive comment out there instead of a negative one?

I believe , and it is my own opinion, that the reason why there are so many "druggies and addicts and sellers" here in Falls City is a combination of those people know they can get away with it in moderation with only a slap on the wrist and the law enforcement here wants to bleed them dry of money to put in the "city fund". If law enforcement auctually did their jobs then half the population would be in jail and that would mean no more easy money could be had for the city.

Falls City is as bad as Hiawatha, although Hiawatha does have a big Walmart, but not a super Walmart like large cities.

Apparently I am the only one in Falls City who actually LIKES it here. Is it a thriving city? No. Is it probably the drug capital of Nebraska? Quite possibly. But do those people try and sell you drugs on every corner? No. I'm just so sick of EVERY single person i know dissing Falls City Ne because it's some little podunk, whole in the wall town that has nothing. WHO CARES?! I like that it's small town. I like that it has virtually nothing here. I like that i'm one in a million who actually wouldn't mind staying here. And HECK! I'm 17. Yes, the people are nosy, and everyone knows EVERYTHING about everyone else, but i'd rather have THAT then anything else. I'd rather live in a town that has nothing, and be able to appreciate something neat when i go to it, instead of being conditioned to thinking that I need everything right now. Is crime rampet? NO. Is Drug usage pretty prominent? Yes. But that is the people, not the stinking town, okay? When people feel like they have nothing better to do, they smoke pot, or get high, or whatever. But as long as you have common sense and dont move into a building that has thirty people doing drugs at once, you'll be okay. Falls City is not the Saint of Nebraska, nor is it the Devil of the state. It is a simple town, with simple problems, who everyone likes to hate on because that is where they came from and they have nothing better to do.
Falls City is NO worse then any other town. It's just a town that has Cobble Stone every summer with STUPID rides and wonderful little shops from all over. It's a town that I can Literally walk from my house to the country area in about ten minutes. It's a place that makes going to the Movies Exciting, and going shopping something to look forward too. It's a simple town for simple people. ANd maybe i'm just a lil' nebraska hick who idealizes everything because it's sentimental, but at least i'm not blaming it on everyone else. Falls City is my home, and no matter how crappy it can seem, i'm doing pretty well here. Better then i probably would in Omaha, L.A, or NYC. I'm a small town person, and it's a small town. OF coarse if your a big town person, your gunna call it a town where crap migrates every year. But, for those who actually care- It's not THAT bad of a place. No worse then anywhere else you'll find in the mid-west, or actually, anywhere.
