Stayed here for 2 nights, and the other reviews are spot on. Not awful, but not good. Has potential to be much better. Pool sides were grimy, concrete dirty. Jacuzzi looked gross. Rooms we OK, but paper thin walls allowed us to hear every foul remark in the room next to us. Heating system sucked, it was a wall unit... More

I didn't like this place at all from the moment we opened the door, it smelled so musty. Its very outdated, and somewhat dirty. I almost wanted to leave, but I had already paid $150 for the room and didn't feel like driving the 3 hours home. My boyfriend wouldn't even get under the blankets in bed. In the morning... More

Stayed two nights for fall colors. Rates were substantially less than others in the area. Rooms were clean, with comfortable beds and quiet. The motif is eclectic or as some would say dated. The pool and spa were clean and accessible without going outside. The breakfast area was small (3 small tables and 2 easy chairs) and crowded on one... More

Staff was friendly. Pool & hot tub was the best part of our stay - heated and very clean water. Small breakfast area & food was subpar to OK. Bed was comfortable and clean. Room was a little musty. Housekeeping was good. 2 snack machines & 2 soda machines. Overall stay ok to good.

We stayed two nights in a large, clean and very comfortable room on the ground floor. The reception staff were helpful and very informative. The facilities are good and well looked after. The location is away from the main town which meant it was quiet with little to disturb our sleep. Breakfast is reasonable although the eating area is small,... More

We stayed here over 2 nights. The first room they offered us stank of pet urine they trietd to disguise with room freshener. When we complained about a barking dog in the next room they moved us to the main building -this room was very good and clean with no smell, however the communal areas (hallways and stairs) were generally...

We have been staying at this motel for many years going back to when it was the Drummer Boy. It was sold and went downhill for a few years. There are now new owners (about 1.5 years) and it is much improved. Clean. Indoor and outdoor pool and hot tub are great. Exercise room for aerobics...treadmill and elliptical. Very nice... More

Reserved the room online. Motel was not conveniently located to other areas of Lincoln. Desk clerk made a comment upon checking in about the rate I was paying, that I could probably sell the room for the night for three times what I paid for it. Room was tacky looking from the outside and worse upon entering. Had a very... More

Upon arrival, the staff was super friendly, the pool and sauna were just right.. Perfect location to get to Lost RIver the next day.. The price was right and the beds were comfortable as well. It was leaf peeping season and the mountains were so beautiful.

Spent 3 nights there and very pleased. Tony, at the front desk, was very helpful and provided excellent advise on the area. Room was very nice. Bathroom was a little dated but fine. Excellent place to stay while viewing the leaves in the surrounding area. Excellent value through ChoiceHotels.com.
