“A decent, independent, cheap motel in a great location.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

It's not the Ritz, but it's nice to stay at a small, family-owned place. It's just off I-55, kind of in the middle of nowhere, sort of near St. Louis. The attached restaurant is closed and for-sale now, but there are a few places kind of nearby. The rooms are kind of outdated but fairly clean and have refrigerators and microwaves. Bed was comfy. Flat-screen TV and a DVD player. In general it's very retro but does need some fixing up. I will stay again. I like the little pond outside- half the rooms overlook the pond and half the road. Quiet out in the country there! For the price, it's fine. Support small business!

It's an older independent motel renting rooms for under $50. With those facts guiding my expectations I was very happy with my stay. The room was clean and comfortable and I even had a view of a small pond with a few egrets hanging around the edges. The nearby restaurant that others have mentioned is no longer operating, however.

Have stayed here many times and will continue to do so! Family reunions can be crazy but having a place to go and unwind is great. Value, location, comfortable and safe!

We are not motel people. But a family of 5, including 2 teenagers, has trouble fitting in one room. So when we waited too long to make a reservation for Memorial Day weekend, we weren't keen on paying $150+ X 2. We decided a motel on old route 66 be an adventure. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and it was quiet. Yes, it could use some updating - especially in the bathrooms. Only got 2 towels and a sample pack of shampoo, but we managed. Well worth the $38! I would stay here over the overpriced St Louis hotels any day.

Nice motel with 24 hour check in service. Folks, it cost $35.00 for two people with two beds. Clean carpet, hot shower, good HVAC unit it room. Flat screen TV set with cable. It is probably 40-50 years old so it is not the most current in design; just keep that in mind, and is a great deal for the money spent! Very Close to the Highway. Could use a new railing and new concrete on the stairs, but is manageable. We did not try the wifi. It is what it is, not a 5 star resort. Restaurant on Site.
(Exit ramp 30 on I-55 in Hamel IL)
I would stay again any time.

Room Tip: Stay away from the second floor rooms if you have children. Guardrail and stairs not in the best sha...
