We stopped over at Aurora at this hotel after checking out a few good reviews. The guests were very right. This was a surprisingly good motel. The room was surprisingly large, the bed was comfortable, with two nightstands and good reading lights, abundant counter-space, large refrigerator, comfortable bathroom with a warm shower and blow dryers, generously supplied with electrical outlets,...

We travelled off of the beaten path into this small Nebraska town looking for lodging and came across this jewel. The price was very reasonable and although it is an old motel it is very well maintained. The rooms were very clean, quiet, and (for those who have fur kids) they are pet friendly. This is a much better quality... More

My Husband and I stayed over the weekend and we very pleased with the stay. We arrived after midnight, but the manager was still very friendly and nice even though we had woken her up! Our room was well kept and clean, the maids did a great job each morning making sure our room was well stocked and clean. For... More

A harvest event in Nebraska filled up motels all around the area and that led us to this great find. Ken's motel is, as others say, very basic (morning coffee is in the motel office). We had a double queen room that was super spacious, had lots of counter space, nice bathroom arrangement and, most important of all, was very... More

Comfortable clean accessible quiet motel on Highway 34. No coffee, no ironing board, just a basic economical hotel. Next door to Pizza Hut, no breakfast served. Try the burgers across the street at Runza Hut.

We had room #63, and the Wi-Fi didn't work in this part of the motel. Had to get dressed and go to the lobby in the morning to check email. There was no microwave in the room, and no way to make coffee in the room. Lobby had microwave and coffee (no breakfast), but did not open until 7. Also,... More

This little place was quaint, clean, quiet and nice! I was pleasantly surprised. Myself and a few friends needed a place to stay and for $60 total Ken's motel was the place. It also happened to be right across the street from the church where the wedding was.

Five stars for the price range it's in. Nice staff, clean rooms and comfy beds. This is worth the 4 mile trek off the highway. Parking for large vehicles.This was a good find and I definitely recommend trying it out.
