My girlfriends dad suggested this to us, said it was cheap. I think $76 was my total. Fridge, microwave, coffee pot, etc. The place was clean, i'll give them that. My only complaints was that the bed was harder than Chinese trigonometry and the pillows were pretty thin. Needs renovated, its kind of like stepping back in the 80's. its... More

I stayed here for 3 months while in town for work. This is a very small town so I basically heard the whole story but the abbreviated version is that the original owner passed and now the family owns it and the property is presently for sale so the property is quite outdated and much in need of said updates....

Very agreeable managers. Motel was close to all events I was participanting in. Room was large and met my needs. Room does need to be really cleaned, updated and refreshed. Than raise the daily rates to cover the cost of the improvements.

After reading a few previous reviews we made reservations at the Lane in French Lick, IN for 2 day stop over to another destination. With the historic area hotels as competition the price for this motel was higher than normal. This is a typical 60's style older motel that offers door parking, mini-fridge & MW and not much else.

Great little motel. the rooms were very clean, and the managers very helpful. they went out of their way to help with all that we may have needed. enjoyed our stay very much. you will need to bring your own pillow for extra comfort. its an older motel but still very nice. and the price is right at 67.00 dollars....

Area rooms can be very expensive, so when we are in the area we stay at Lanes. Rooms are clean and comfortable. No not 5 star but everything you need to just get away without spending all your money on a room. there are a lot of restaurants in the area, a casino, ski resort, indoor water park, Winery and...

I had low expectations for the price, however the those expectations were not met.This was not a dirty room but not real clean either. This place has good bones and needs revamped. They need to put money in bathrooms. The people were nice but my wife said this changed her views of cost effective motel stays. :(

Our room didn't appear to have been cleaned since 1978(which is probably when they got their linens and furniture). As exec of housekeeping at a Fairfield Inn, I was horrified. I had to buy cleaning supplies and scrub bathroom tiles, tub and flo for over an hour! cobwebs everywhere, filthy and broken a c filters, baseball sized hair blob in... More

Then they said they could only put us in a one bed room and refused to refund the difference when we had paid for a double.This room was better.... More

Lane's Motel is a great place to stay overnight and a great price. The people are friendly checking in and out, they're very helpful. My room was very spacious with a flat screen TV, mini fridge, mini microwave, hairdryer and mini coffee pot. It was peaceful, however; you could hear minimal voices of people staying next door. My room did... More
