Pros: 60's bath is in good shape, wood paneling adds to the original look, quiet location, acceptable bed and bedding, priced right. Cons: stains on carpet and recliner chair, thrift store furnishings, electric outlets are loose and and sparse. There are lots of "mid-century" motels that are really great. This one is okay.

I had reserved a single queen, but was given a single king for the same price. The place is old, but was clean and quiet. It is located in a quiet part of town, away from the busy roads. In addition to the king bed, it had a dresser, desk and chair, old style TV, microwave and mini fridge. For... More

Booked a king room based on previous reviews. Old 50's - style motel. Clean. Comfy bed. Room included love seat,microwave and fridge. AC worked but we couldn't find the control for it, however it was no a problem. There was a ceiling fan that worked if the room may not be cool enough for you. Old motor court motel. Wi-Fi... More

If you like classic road-trip motels, this is a gem. It's in a quiet area of Abilene. Clean, friendly, basic, bargain price. A couple of restaurants are a short drive away. Nice parks and neighborhoods to walk in.

Abilene is a hidden gem near the middle of Kansas. Seeley Mansion, Eisenhower Center, Greyhound (dogs not busses) museum, historical museum and carousel, steam train, city trolley tours, Russell Stover candy factory. Great restaurants. Diamond Motel is the best bargain; clean, great staff.

The Hotel sign is really cool. So we thought we'd check it out and found it to be suitable. My room was clean and comfy and had added appeal for me - some original vintage fittings in the bathroom and a really cute vintage mini fridge (probably very collectable!). This motel room may have looked like it had been furnished... More

Checkin was quick, the new owners and staff are great, clean room, it was quiet. Wifi and cable tv was nice and they have a little breakfast in the morning with coffee. Price was good too. Will stay again!

We stayed here on April 12, 2013 for the Eisenhower Marathon. The hotel was affordable, and included a small discount for visiting for the marathon. We waited in the lobby for someone else to finish checking in, and she was asked if she had any pets. We were not asked this (we didn't have any) although one step into our... More

We have stayed here 4 times in the last 2 years, a different room each time. Rooms are very clean and well cared for. We now plan to stay here when we go through. Quiet, out of the way along old Hwy 40 (3rd St); we have had a good experience each time we have stayed here. We had a... More

The room was very clean and i was very happy with the service that they provided for the PRICE! The motel did not have very good internet connection and the mattresses could use an update but again I am so impressed with the room being VERY CLEAN and that is very important to me and my family. GOOD VALUE!
