This place is a gem! You walk in very clean. Front desk very friendly and very helpful. These rooms are great. Beds comfortable. Refreshingly clean I can't get over this place. Small but very nice for the price. Coffee and donuts to boot. Free wifi. Great price. All bedding was very clean and fresh.

Reservations can only be made by calling. The rates are great and the rooms are clean and comfortable. As a no frills kinda place, do not expect hair toiletries, a hair dryer, ironing boad, extra pillows, or gym. They do have free wifi, which was great. Service was spotty at times. Breakfast is a miss. A box of doughnut, coffee... More

Our room faced the back on the second floor. It was state fair week and we expected to hear lots of rowdiness. There was not any. Rooms are clean and comfotable. No frills means no hair products or hair dryers, coffe maker, gym, pool, etc. the breakfast is a box of doughnuts and some form of juice. But, if you... More

Pleasantly surprised at the value. Very clean, comfortable beds and great price. Plenty of space in the room. No complaints. It was a welcome resting place after a long drive. Will stay again without hesitation.

I just returned home from Escanaba after staying at the Lincoln Host. I have stayed there for almost every visit to Escanaba since the hotel was built. I was very suprised to see they no longer have small refrigerators in the rooms. I really like to stay where they have one in the room. Many times there are left overs... More

This hotel was clean and has room rates that are affordable. We decided to take a spur of the moment trip to get away for the day and ended up in Escanba. We didn't make reservations and had no idea where to stay. We called the Lincoln Host to see if they had rooms available for the night and the... More

As you enter Escanaba on from the North on US 2 you will pass several chain hotels. Keep driving. The little hotel called the Lincoln Host will impress you with its clean and simple approach to lodging. I recently stayed there because of TripAdvisor ratings and I am so glad I did. This place was quiet, comfortable, unpretentious, and alarmingly... More

This hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff/owner was super friendly and made great dinner suggestions. The rooms are pretty standard, but why would you pay almost twice as much at a chain hotel? The location is just off Hwy 2 and there is no view of the water but most of the other hotels available do not have a... More

I was shocked by how low our rate was. My 5 stars is based not on the amenities, of which there are few, but on the rate and the cleanliness. For in-room amenities you get small bars of soap and a liquid soap dispenser in the shower and a coffee maker. You also get WiFi and for breakfast it's simply... More

Have stayed here many times since they first opened. Never had a bad experience, always found the rooms clean and well-maintained. It's showing it's age somewhat, but is still far from being run-down. Don't expect 5-star amenities, though. This is a budget motel, priced significantly lower than other properties in town. But it's clean, fairly new, and has everything you... More
