Room was reasonably spacious given we got a smaller room. Big comfortable bed, TV, coffee making facilities, iron and hairdryer, as well as arm chair and small table make up the rooms furnishings. Be warned, this place is right beside a train track, and the trains honk loudly as they pass. I was exhausted arriving, and I slept the whole... More

Like another reviewer mentioned, the older woman at the front desk with the Russian accent was extremely rude, which almost deterred us completely, but we decided to overlook it the first time because we had already reserved over the phone, and we went to look at the room. And the room wasn't clean, and it definitely wasn't worth staying if... More

My husband and I went up for my niece's high school graduation. He found this motel online and the pictures and reviews all looked good for the price so he booked it for the 3 nights we were going to be in town. Our room wasn't bad, it was clean for the most part. It was just an old musty... More

Located across the street from the Governor's Mansion, this is a great location for visiting the state house as well as the historic district. Everything is within very easy walking distance. Though the exterior seems dated, my room was very clean and comfortable. I had no issues with the room itself. The front desk staff were great and recommended a... More

Lovely bed and selection of pillows -- and no noise from the train out back. Room and parking were great!!! -- you can walk to all the Lincoln sites and good restaurants and pubs from there. Breakfast was minimal -- not even any decaf coffee, but the price and location were perfect!

I have traveled quite a bit, but I have never come across a room so small as this. 2 double beds barely fit in the room. No remote for the TV. Nothing stayed plugged in because the outlets were so outdated. The one outlet by one of the beds was burned out and I had sparks come out of another... More

I have to admit the exterior of this hotel gave me pause...a LOT of pause. But I was only there for one night & the rate was cheap so I decided to man up and check-in. I was pleasantly surprised opening the door to my room. It looked recently remodeled, good carpeting, comfortable queen size bed, and good furnishings. Two... More

We were willing to overlook the average conditions,just because they were so nice.Price was good too. Well,the management changed &... More

Great location for the museums and all other venues. Was the right price. However, it took 15 minutes to get hot water to the shower.... inadequate lighting only two low table lamps...reception staff varied from helpful and efficient to slovenly with an attitude. Carpet worn and soiled...windows not clean... sheets torn and threadbare... continental breakfast inadequate.... old large box TV... More
