4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had read several of the reviews previously posted. They were very accurate that the motel is extremely clean and well-kept. The owners of done some very nice landscaping around the pool. The pool is incredible! We were on the second floor and the view of the river was very nice. The facility is dated, but it is incredibly clean.... More

We stopped here on a road trip down the Great River Road. Within walking distance to the Lady Luck Casino. Motel is very clean, and comfortable. Not many amenities, but perfect for a stay! Nice outdoor pool, chairs and table outside every door. Felt safe and comfortable. Train tracks but never heard the train during the night.

I've stayed here several times and never been disappointed. Very clean with an old fashioned vibe. I like the fact I enter right into my room, no roaming long hallways or climbing a lot of stairs. The people who own the place and those who work there are extremely friendly and helpful.

We loved the location of the Frontier Motel! If you get a room on the second floor, you get a great view of the river and can sit on the deck chairs outside your room. It is right next door to the casino and within a few blocks of the Eagles Landing Winery. The owner was very friendly, outgoing, and... More

This hotel is right on the Mississippi and right next door to the lady luck casino. The hotel is very outdated, but clean. The $100 a night price on this hotel is a bit much for what you get. The pool and lawn chairs outside the hotel were nice touches for a nice summer night. I would stay again if... More

The price was ok for a place to store my suitcase, walk to the casino, play a little, then sleep. The casino (Lady Luck) has no hotel. This is the next best thing. There is another hotel in town but it's pricier. Bed was a bit hard and there were trains going by at night but the noise didnt bother... More

This is our fourth stay at this motel. It's a simple, non-fancy place. The rooms are little date, yet our room was clean & comfortable. We like that there are patio chairs outside of every room. It makes it easy to hang out enjoy the company of others. There is also a large pool with patio tables & umbrellas. They... More

Two years ago we stayed at this motel and were impressed by the clean rooms and low rates even though the motel is dated. This year the rooms were twice as high as before. $110. nightly rate per room seemed high for the old place with water stained tiles, stained carpet, and poor faucets. We left for breakfast, and when... More

The friendliest people own, work and stay at this place. Always fun to sit outside and visit with other guests (when the weather cooperates). Todd, the owner is nice to talk to and very helpful. The location next to the Lady Luck casino is a real bonus.
