2 things - 1. This place was a saving grace for us; showed up in the middle of the blizzard. 2. There is no way I'd stay here if it wasn't an emergency! The place was so disgusting I couldn't sleep (afraid of bed bugs) & couldn't shower the next morning afraid of getting dirtier.

This was the first place with a vacancy that we came to. We were tired and just wanted a good night's sleep. It was cheap. We were asked twice if we had any pets. I think pets might have improved the place. If I had been alone, I would not have felt safe. Door locks were flimsy. The art work... More

Keep driving, the carpet is filthy, shower is stained and disgusting. The bed is like a rock and the pillow cases had stains on them. The thermostat top is ripped off the wall and teperature setting written in black sharpie. The service was friendly however.

The owner is impolite and unappreciative of your business, the rooms are unexceptional at best and overpriced for what you get, and continental breakfast is actually plastic wrapped muffins. If you're considering staying here, I'd suggest you try the Travelodge instead; it's a better deal and you're giving your business to better folks.

Stayed in this motel on 9/15/2011, the room stunk had filthy carpet and a filthy bathroom. The bed sheets stunk so bad and the flies in the room were so horrible we ended up getting up at midnight and left. Even if the room was a bargain it could have been clean! I recommend they burn the place down and... More

It was reasonably good at the price I paid. I was not expecting very good luxury for breakfast. I did my break fast at the... More

There was no hot water in the sink. The window was dirty and the bath towels were gray (clorox would help that)!!!! Free breakfast consisted of a tupperware container that had bread, bagel, and a frozen waffle. Coffee pot was disgusting and I could'nt drink the coffee!!!! I don't expect any luxury for the price but I do insist on... More

I stayed at the 1st Interstate Inn located in Elm Creek, NE from 11/14/05 thru 11/16/05 for business. It's the only motel in town. I paid for all three nights in advance by credit card. The clerk who checked me in was unkempt and needed a bath. My room was down a dirty hall with piles of used towels and... More

jack1975, Manager at 1st Interstate Inn, responded to this review

This review is of year 2005. The ownership of this Motel is changed in 2007. After that it is completely renovated including roof, siding, Room furniture, Carpet and many other amenities of the property. Thus this eliminates the real facts of any reviews posted before 2009. Please come and stay in this newly renovated motel and experience the real comfort... More
