This special place oozes Magical Nostalgia! Built in the 1930’s brought into its lastest ideation by Lucas Steinbreinner who became the new owner a little over a year ago. Special spot with so many adventures to be had right out of the front door. Lincoln Motor Court~Manns Choice, Pennsylvania. #MagicalNostalgia Built in the 1930’s brought into its lastest ideation by Lucas Steinbreinner who became the new owner a little over a year ago. Special spot with so many adventures to be had right out of the front door. The Lincoln Highway was the first transcontinental highway constructed in 1913 connecting New York to San Francisco. The Lincoln Motor Court is the last Motor Court to still stand on the entire road so precious to our collective travel history. There is a stage for live music at the courts center and a grand sense of community. Looking forward to seeing what’s your come for the gem of a place.

I was traveling the Lincoln Highway, seeking a genuine experience like I’ve encountered on Route 66, and I found it here. Old fashioned cabins with wood panel, tiled shower, and a very comfortable bed! I expected no frills but each cabin has a fridge and tv. It’s a step back in time, but it’s cozy and well maintained. Lucas and his team have done an amazing job creating a place of fun, food, with live music monthly in season. I cannot express how wonderful it is to sit outside your cabin and see live music! There’s a real sense of community here. On top of that, it’s the only motor court on Lincoln Highway still in operation, so it is precious to our history. My hat’s off to everyone who has supported this motor court. I’m excited for what’s to come.

A wonderful roadside attraction that is still in operation! Lincoln Motor Court along Lincoln Highway. Built in the 1930's, this is the only motor court still in operation in Bedford County for overnight guests. Each room is a blast from the past ready to take you back in time! Whether staying or just driving by, it is definitely something to see!

This was a bucket list stay for my husband. It may not be for everyone, but we enjoyed checking things out. The new owner is working to make needed improvements while keeping the vintage charm. We were lucky enough to get a tour of recently finished work and a cabin in-process. It was clean and had all the necessities. I felt a bit like we were camping - but in a good way. We had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The bed was VERY comfortable. I hope we get to return in a few years to see the progress.

If you're wanting to experience a vintage court motel, this is absolutely amazing. From the decor to the fixtures, you can tell the owners have taken care to maintain the traditional, vintage aesthetic. There was a radio playing music from the 30s and 40s, vintage calendars and artwork, and period clothing in the closet. We absolutely loved it and had a wonderful stay. However, I understand that not everyone shares our love of vintage motels. If you're expecting a modern, high-end hotel, this is not for you. It's creaky and drafty, the water takes awhile to heat up, and our room had a tube TV. (It did have surprisingly fast wi-fi.) We also noted that the size of the room and bathroom would be extremely challenging if you have any accessibility requirements. But for us, this was perfect. We heard about it years ago and it's been a bucket list item since then. We were thrilled to make it in right before they closed for the season. The owner (and his tiny dog) was kind and welcoming, and I'm so glad we had a chance to meet him. I saw an article indicating it's up for sale, and I hope desperately that whoever purchases it keeps the traditional design. I'm glad we had this experience.

I have stayed at other nostalgic roadside motels and was really excited about this one, but was sadly disappointed. The attempt to keep it 'original' seems more like an excuse to not sink any money into it. It needs work. I did not see the other cabin/rooms, but we were the only car there, so I would assume that if we were the only people staying there, that we would have gotten their best room! There was a piece of wood mounted over a large radiator to represent a 'desk', but you couldn't sit there because your knees would hit the radiator. The mini refrigerator was on top of that 'desk'. A mini kitchen was set up in what looks like it used to be a closet with a microwave, RUSTY stained 'stainless steel' sink. No refrig in the 'kitchen' because it is across the room on the 'desk'. With what used to be the 'closet' being converted to a 'kitchen', we noticed there was no place to hang clothes. Then we noticed one small hanging rack attacthed to the wall...where?...on top of the refrigerator (which was on top of the desk which was on top of the radiator). So hanging clothes will be hanging on the refrigerator! Instead, we will use the dresser. Well only two of four drawers in the dresser were good. The other two were cut down to be only about 6 inches deep. Why? Because the same radiator extended BEHIND the dresser, so the two drawers had to be cut off to fit! A large 'L' shape is cut out of the dresser side wall so that it can fit over the radiator. Oh, and did I mention that the radiator didn't even work? So why keep that huge radiator in the way when it doesn't even work? However, we did have heat...we had a gas wall mounted heater and an electric portable radiator. There is no air conditioning (not needed by us) and there was a box fan stored under the sink in the 'kitchen'. There was only about 12 inches of space between the bed and the wall to get in and out. A mini triangle wedge shelf was attached to the wall because there was no room for a nightstand. Carpet was very old and ceilings looked bad. Lots of old memorabilia and old dresser scarfs around the room which could be cute, but were really just taking up much needed space. Positive comments: It would be one star, but will give two stars because the beds and pillows were comfortable. The (handmade?) bed quilts were a nice touch. The owners were very nice to talk to. The outside lighting, window flower pots and chairs were cute. You can renovate and still maintain the historic look, It needs it. We won't be back. Not recommended.

We had to cancel an earlier trip here and were delighted to make a weekend of visiting this area this week. Yes, it's older, but that's the point of it. Historical, quaint,and local owned and operated. The owners live on site, they answer the phone, they check you in/out, offer suggestions on places to eat and things to do. Yes, it's not for everyone, but perhaps,just try it? Figure out how the water in the shower works, play out in the courtyard where you can have a small fire or throw a game of corn hole. See what travel may have been like years ago where you park outside your door. You may like it!

We have visited and stayed here twice over the last 10 years; brings back memories for me of traveling with my grandparents in the 1950s. The rooms are nice and comfortable; microwave, heater for chlly nights. We will stay here again. No food on site but good restaurants are available within 2-3 miles each direction on the Lincoln Highway.

When I heard about this place, I could not wait to stay there. It was exactly as described. It’s very old fashioned, and that is the point! If you don’t find a pink and black bathroom from the 1940s exciting, you would be happier staying somewhere else. Please also note that there is no air conditioning, just a window fan. It was hot like hell when we were staying, but we managed. There were some cool old artifacts in our room, such as an old camera and a hilarious advice book about how to catch and keep a man. We enjoyed that. One thing that was unavailable was ice. The owners offered to give us ice from her fridge, but we were wishing for a lot of ice.

For years my wife and I have passed by this place numerous time and never thought about staying here. My wife saw this place on PBS a couple years ago and thought it would be nice to visit. This weekend we decided to do a weekend roadtrip and stayed here. It's cold out with some snow dusting on the ground so there's really nothing to do outside. When we went into the room we found the gas heater on and the room to be very cozy and warm. When we turned the radio on as instructed by the owner when we checked in it was like going back in time where there were no TVs. Not that I would know because I'm not that old. Lol. But all in all we loved it and will definitely be returning hopefully in the summer time.
