Very very dated facility. Our room was clean, very small, smallest bathroom I've ever seen in a motel room. Shower stall may have been original with the facility. Cheap enough that you'll likely have "entertainment" in the middle of the night listening to "interesting" noises emanating from around you... Will work hard to find an alternative next time... but would... More

From the outside during the day, this motel looks a little run down but once inside the lobby and inside one of the rooms you will be pleasantly surprised. The lobby is clean and maintained and when you walk in you feel a little like you are stepping back into time. This hotel sits on the historic Lincoln Highway. My... More

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
