The woman, who hasn’t been identified, checked into the Hampton Inn late Wednesday, said Capt. D.J. Barcal of the La Vista Police Department.

About 6 a.m. Thursday, he said, the woman visited the restroom and discovered the yard-long snake on the toilet lid.

Police were called. The snake was put into a pillowcase and turned over to the Nebraska Humane Society, said society.
