50 bucks a night, but shower and carpet really filthy. Bed linen clean, chairs stained, reception friendly. Best for train enthusiasts. ( every 30 min a train whistles 400 feet away during the night) no breakfast but coffee free of charge.

The place was older but the staff was very helpful. They allowed us to put up an area in the back for Brutus to play. The rooms were clean and the area was maintained. I really enjoyed the family that are locals running the place. Reminds me of the way things used to be before all the big franchises &... More

I travel for work. I've stayed in fair share of dumps. But this place is special. Jumping to my number one all time nasty nastiest motels. The floor was littered with cockroaches. I always bring bug spray. with me. When I pulled out the box say The Cockroaches congregated and laughed. The only good thing I have to say about... More

Old motel with old furnishings. Towels small and thin. Old TV, old everything. Friendly staff. Had a hard day of riding with lots of storms so was happy to find motel. It served the purpose of a place to sleep. Just know it is very outdated.

Sheila the manager is a sweetheart and soooo wants to make you happy. But the owners need to spend some $$ and upgrade rooms at a minimum. As well as the wifi...promised it would work and Sheila said it always fails.

One of the dirtiest motels I have ever seen. Stains all over the carpet and bed spreads. Dirty bathroom and toilet. Wi Fi did not work even after they said it was fixed. I could not spend the night in this room, had to leave.

We stayed at the Gateway Motel during the 2012 Nebraska Junk Jaunt. I think it may be in the process of being updated - our room was painted Pepto Bismol pink (shudder), but my friends' room, next door, looked much nicer. The sheets on my bed were worn to the point of pilling, but my friend's bed had new crisp... More

Great hot water with pressure. Towls soft and not like SOS pads. It had a fridge and a microwave and... More
