We stayed here as we were in town for a family thing. Needless to say not sure I would stay again. Our room had blood stained towels in it. There was garlic in the drawer. The sheets had black marks all over it. I was not expecting the Hilton but expected clean. The room had an odd smell to it... More

The clean & comfy pretty much speak for themselves. I called it convenient because it is right on the Lincoln Highway and has a good restaurant right across the street. I stayed in the original 1940 section. The room had a 1940's feel and size but was updated where appropriate (e.g., AC, TV, bathroom).

In the area for a cattle sale and decided to give this historic motel a try. Definitely not disappointed! We stayed in the Fishing theme room - it was not the biggest room but decorated nicely, very clean and smelled good. Had all the amenities - refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, coffee pot and nice flat screen TV. This was one... More

I stayed at the Park Motel for business, an extended stay of 6 nights. The room was very clean and smelled nice. The furniture was either from the 1940's or at least had been made up to look the part. I stayed in a 'themed' room and judging by the deer head on the wall the theme was hunting. The... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. We stayed in a hunting theme room. The room was nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Big bathroom. Service is great. It is a historical site so it is to be expected it has an old look and feel to it. Overall a nice experience while being on the road.

Stayed one night here in September on my holidays from Scotland UK. the lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a quaint "fishing" themed room which was spotlessly clean with a new large flat screen tv. The bed was large and comfy and I had a wonderful night sleep. overall a very nice experience I... More

You may have stayed here in the 50's or 60's with your parents - which is what makes it fun. The property is slowly being renovated so make sure you get an updated room. We were asked if we wanted to see the room and if we had decided based on the stairs going to the room we would have... More

great vintage motel from the old lincoln highway days. had the donna reed room for only $61.00 per night. this place is for road warriors not super slab lovers. in addition it is right across the road from cronks(another institution on the lincoln)

We had several rooms here for a recent family reunion. Don't expect the Marriot because this is an old, quaint hotel and inexpensive stay. The staff is trying very hard to update all the rooms, but as a private enterprise, it's going to take them some time. Our bathroom has just been remodeled and a new flat screen TV had... More
