“Good, cheap place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2010

We are in-between home and moved from an cheesy Econolodge to the Lincoln Lodge Motel because our dogs are welcome. We are here for a month and are very happy with the room, staff and amenities. The cost is 1/2 what we were paying at the low end chain motel.

Excellent value but don't expect much - you do get what you pay for. This is not Embasy Suites. The place has all the charm of the 50's state road motel that it is. It is sufficiently clean, has a coin laundry, rec room, cozy lobby and wi-fi.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2008

So we're going to Indiana for a football game and we're looking for a cheap hotel. We see this one listed on either hotel rolodex or the on line yellow pages and note the price is only $40.00. There lots of good, inexpensive hotels throughout the Mid-West, usually clean and affordable. What the heck, it's only one night we figure. How bad can it be?

IT WAS BAD BEYOND ANYONE'S WORST NIGHTMARE! I would call it a flea bag dump, but that is an insult to flea bag dumps everywhere. A sampling of the problems:
-The room initially smelled dank and musty. That is until we turned on the heater. Within seconds the room smelled like dead body cooking on a heating element. And when we turned it off, the stink remained- all night long.
-The door to the bathroom could not close as it was hung poorly.
-The shower smelled like rusty pipes, the shower head was so old it was frozen in place and flowed poorly
-The towels were paper thin and the size of a napkin.
-The furniture was decrepit, the pillows were 1/32 of an inch thick.
-The lobby was inhabited by a gaggle of circus sideshow freaks.
-The gravel parking lot had several wrecks parked there.

The list goes on. I felt like Norman Bates was going to enter our room any minute and slash me to death. Could not wait to leave this crap shack.

For God's sake, AVOID THIS MOTEL HELL AT ALL COSTS! It should be closed down before they start finding bodies in the closets. I feel lucky to get out of that place alive!

You have been warned.
