“Neat and clean place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I chose to stay here before my trip to Lindsborg. The queen room is spacious enough for one single person, everything looks clean and neat, though there is a little weird fragrant smell. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's not the cheapest but probably the best value for budgeted travellers! It is very close to the highway and other locations in the town which makes it great.

Stayed in this little inn for a few nights... really cheap rates and not too far from many things in Salina. Saw reviews on this motel, but didn't have any of the issues they mentioned, perhaps they were doing maintanence on a room or something? We found our stay to be great! No problems, the rooms were well kept!

I'm not sure who wrote the positive reviews about this motel, but the recent negative reviews are much closer to the truth. Unfortunately these recent reviews were not posted when I made my reservation---at that time this motel was listed as #1 choice in Salina above Holiday Inn! We made our reservation based on these reviews which was our mistake. This motel is very old--1920's auto court style in the wrong part of town--sitting right on the street, pretty shabby. It is a Mom and Pop very basic operation. $41 per night is really cheap, but it depends on your standards. We spent the first hour killing flies in our room--then noticed we had no security lock on the door and the frig won't work. On the whole, the room is old, basic but fairly clean and comfortable---however woodwork and the carpet need cleaning. But the absolutely WORST thing is the bare bulb in the ceiling--the ONLY light in the room! Not even a bedside light. There is a desk, free wi-fi, small bathroom and king bed. This motel is not charming or quaint and many of the previous reviews are really very misleading. We would not recommend this motel to anyone except guests looking for a really cheap rate who don't care about basic quality.

We wanted to camp, but the high winds and severe storm threats changed our plans. We had the highway magazine with coupons and decided to stay at this hotel. The front desk person was very helpful and even put our freezer jugs in their large freezer for us since the room refrigerators were too small. The hotel is directly across from a truck stop, so the noise from the diesels was a bit much when outside, but didn't hear anything inside the room. It's far enough from the highway, that that side is actually quieter, but we didn't change our room. The beds were okay, older TV, but clean and reasonably priced. Not many choices for breakfast and nothing hot except toast.

Look, this is an old refurbished motel on the "other side of the tracks" in Salina. It does not deserve a 5 star rating. I gave it 2.5 because it is great value, but not the best motel (as TripAdvisor states) by a long shot. I found the rooms to be small and though clean and comfortable there are glaring issues. First, the shower had no handles (photo), Second the door has no security locks (photo) third it is in an area that is well past it’s "hey day", on a busy noisy road. FYI - the new, better motels have all been built South of here. I came here because of TripAdvisors "Ranked #1 of 27 hotels in Salina" but this should not be so. Sure $42 (tax included) is cheap but spend a few $$ more and move up town. Conditionally Recommended 2.5 Star
