This is obviously an older property but has been mostly refurbished. We had a very small room but it was very comfortable. Great bed and excellent ac. Bathroom was very small but adequate. Price was right and pool in good shape. Lots of attractive landscaping. We would not hesitate to stay again.

When my husband booked us to stay here a couple of weeks ago so he could go fishing in Kentucky Lake, I really wasn't expecting much. Other roadside motels I'd stayed in were more on the dumpy side. Our room in the Early American Motel was freshly painted and immaculately clean. There was even a nice little table and chairs in front of the room. Also, there is a very good restaurant almost across the street with good catfish and other seafood. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. I recommend it highly.

Was looking for a one night stay. This place was really nice. I would stay more nights. Room was dated, but very clean!! That is what I look for anymore, cleanliness! My room had 2 beds, was harder matress than I have at home, but would rather have a firm one when traveling vs a soft one! Had a room frig w/a little freezer section. Small microwave provided. Even had a full size coffee pot instead of one of those little one cup things. Did I mention how clean everything was?? Window air unit that was in a window overlooking the back of the motel. In 90+ degree heat the room was kept cool. Front porch had a small table and 2 chairs so you could sit outside and people watch. Good size pool was there and people were in it, but I didn't use it. Next business over was a food and bar place. Sat. night we were gonna walk over, as we could hear music from the live band outside. Decided we were 2 tired and didn't. Once we were in our room and closed the door, we couldn't hear the music or any road noise. I would highly recommend this place! Did I mention it was clean?

We loved our stay at Early American. The owners are fantastic people and went out of their way to make us feel at home and gave us some wonderful suggestions for activities to do and places to eat. They have also just installed a gas bbq which we loved cooking our dinners on, and the pool is lovely, clean and big! Would definitely recommend - wonderful value for money!

The rooms were comfortable, plenty of room for the family and cooking was made easy in the room with the kitchenette. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Pool was a nice plus. The grandkids and I enjoyed it very much. Great location near the lakes and the Elk and Bison Prairie. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to get away and enjoy some quiet time.
