I expected this place to be a bit dumpy but it wasn't. My room was as nice as the Super 8 next door and totally QUIET! My king bed was as good as beds get - with super-soft sheets! Internet, HBO, Fridge, Micro. No breakfast but who eats that crap at Super 8 anyway? Frozen bagels anyone? I saved $20... More

All hotels were booked for last weekend, or the couple that did have vacancy were $249/night with a two night minimum. Then I happened to call the Big Ten Inn and secured a room for $89 a night! The room was dated yes, but the important thing is it was very clean. The room was also equipped with a small... More

This was a late night check in on a long cross country drive and the goal was basic bed and shower. This is exactly what I got. The property isn't pretty and is actually a little tired with well worn carpet, a musty smell and some holes in the sheets. That said, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable,... More

When I made my reservation I had my doubts. So cheap and to look at the building not atractive at all. But, when I got into my room I was more than pleased. Vary clean. I've stayed in some nice places all over the world and this by far was one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed at.... More

I made a reservation on line for Saturday. That night, a few minutes before midnight, I arrived at the Big Ten Inn, and the door was locked. I pressed the door bell and there was no answer. I called the phone number for the motel and got a greeting saying my call was "very important" but not saying that no... More

That's what I was told when the desk clerk said they were out of the 'cheap' rooms and I said I might go across the street to a different motel. The place is nice, I paid less than $50, heat in the room was already on (that is rare these days). Lounge closed in November, it's for sale. Been here... More
