Room completely renovated...very clean....nice furnishings...large flat screen tv... Room 23.....the only drawback was the bed..for 80 dollars a night, I would expect a good bed. We have stayed here before....and will return, hopefully they will be updating mattresses. Overall, great place to stay.

The Frontier is an older motel. Our room was clean and comfortable, and it met our needs for a one night stay. The owner was very friendly and he has placed chairs outside each room. We were on the second floor and had a view from the balcony of the Mississippi River across the street. Unfortunately, the train tracks are... More

We stay here every year. The price is right. The rooms are clean. The manager is frendly. The beds are a little soft for my liking but that's OK. There is the railroad across the street but that is part of the area. We also like the Lady Luck gambling joint down the street.

Super cute motel, guy at the front desk (I forget his name) was so very friendly, I wound up getting sick the day we were supposed to leave and he was so caring and helpful. We wound up staying another day/night. Rooms are affordable, and clean and neat with everything you might need. In ground pool was beautiful too, clean... More

We liked this hotel. The price was fair and the view was nice and well kept. Everything was within walking distance of this hotel. Everything meaning a café, a gas station and a casino if you so choose. Quaint motel, clean and the owner was very nice and cordial. No breakfast included, but it is nice to stay at. Not... More

Stopped here with my Brother and Sister-in-law while on a motorcycle road trip. Our rooms were very nice, very clean, apparently recently remodeled. Definitely at the top of the 2 star motels. (2 stars provide all the services I need, and there's a pool) The motel is basically next door to a casino; about a one minute walk away. It's... More

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.
