I just arrived here and should most likely wait till I leave to write this, however I won't.. I arrived and went to the lobby and there was a bit of confusion on my reservation (it is on me and not the property) however the lady said we could straighten it out and she did. However I ask could I... More

I've stayed at Ken's four or five times while visiting family in the area. On my most recent visit I flew in to the Grand Island airport, about fifteen miles away, so I thought I'd look into hotels there. For twice or three times as much as the rate at Ken's, it just didn't seem worth it. I've been in... More

My husband and I have stayed frequently at Ken's over the past 20 years (usually in the same room). We have always enjoyed the quiet peaceful room and affordable no frill price. But over the 20 years of being a guest at Ken's we have noticed that the maintenance and upkeep have not been done. It wasn't until this past... More

What a great motel and adorable, clean town! Whenever my travels take me by here, I plan on staying at Ken's Motel again. Very quiet...no frills, but I don't need them. Wifi was free, they took my small pet at no charge, and the rate was great. Cindy H.

My son and I stayed at Ken's Motel for three days. We had a very clean and comfortable room with a flat screen tv, full size refrigerator and wonderfully comfortable beds. The place was very peaceful and quiet and very inexpensive laundry facilities were an added plus. My son uses a walker so we had the handicapped accessible room. It... More

It seems to be the only hotel in town. Fortunately it is clean, roomy and all on one level. The room had a full fridge but no microwave. There is no breakfast or coffee served in the morning. It does have wifi. The rate without a breakfast is a little high. Your choice is ; a, stay here, or ;... More

I wish for more hotels like Ken's. For a basic night's stay, one might hanker for an exercise room, or a hot breakfast in the morning. But not reasonable at these rates. Otherwise there is nothing to fault with this hotel. Everything is very clean. Beds are comfortable. Good showerhead. Excellent HD TV reception. Nice helpful service. And at a... More

A work related trip to Grand Island. Not wanting to get up before 4 a.m. I decided to find a place close to Grand Island as the hotel I usually stay at was booked. I was shocked when I called to make my reservation and was given the rate. My room was clean and comfortable. The a/c worked great as... More

We stayed at Ken's in Aurora to be able to visit our daughter. Room was clean and spacious. Loved that we had a full size refrigerator in room. Internet was slow but we were not needing it so it didn't matter. Great value for a family weekend!

Expect just the basics but a clean, neat and quiet place to stay. Just as good or better than the basic Super 8's we have stayed at.
