“It is what it is!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Based on previous reviews, we decided to stay here. We would NOT stay here again. For a few dollars more, we would choose to stay elsewhere.

PROS:
-It is cheap
-It is clean
-Good mattress comfort
-Good internet connection
-Large LG flat screen TV
-Free breakfast (waffles, pastries, cold cereal) - Don't know what else was available in fridge
-Pleasant manager/owner

CONS:
-Bright, but oppressive lobby + hallways (felt like a dorm or prison) Everywhere--and I do mean everywhere--has a coat of white gloss paint. No color interest or room decor.
-Less than friendly check-in clerk (not the manager)
-Paper thin walls. Woke up early by upstairs guest clomping around.
-Hideous bedspreads
-Poor-fitting door to hallway showed a LOT of light around all 4 sides. Lots of noise from slamming doors.
-Toilet is a jet-powered model and there was a lot of splashing with each flush. No toilet seat cover...put these 2 comments together and you can figure out that is was GROSS without a seat cover.
--Breakfast room (room key needed) was functional, but also drab. No pleasant decor or colors.

I booked a room for one night just to try this place out as I was so unsure because it was so inexpensive. I ended up staying 2 more nights! It was reasonably priced and what I noticed the most was the staff was very friendly and willing to please! It was very clean and everything I needed! Hot breckfast in the morning and great service! I was greeted with a good morning by everyone I met at the motel! Relatively quiet and easy to park right by my door! I give this hotel an A for keeping the cost down and being able to provide the necessities and in a clean manner! Definitely will be staying there again!

My room was clean and probably would have been adequate (expect for no refrigerator) but there was one huge problem.The room smelled heavily perfumed. Perhaps it was air freshener, but even opening the window (even though it was cold outside) did not get rid of the smell. The entire hallway also smelled. I had an allergy all night and didn't sleep a wink.

Dear Customer,

We apologize for not asking you during the check-in if you were allergic to the air freshener. We have asked our maid service to ensure that air freshener mixture is according to the industry standard. We strive to ensure that our customer's experience is a very good one. Hope you will give us another opportunity to serve.

Sincerely

I do not normally stay in low priced hotels. I travel for work a lot and they use Hilton hotels. For a 5 day, 4 night trip to Lincoln with my father, who is retired and watches his money, he chose this hotel. I was skeptical. However, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The WiFi worked well and I had no complaints. Not all rooms have a refrigerator and microwave but we had adjoining rooms and one room did have these amenities. The only real weaknesses, which are to be expected, were in the in room coffee service. Also, they had no soda machine.

Again, we sincerely apologize any inconvenience the transition may have caused. Hope you will give us another opportunity to serve.

After looking for the Motel 6 sign we discovered they are now a America's Best Value Inn. Our confirmation was in the system so that worked out, but what a surprise of the change without any notification prior to us arriving. The room was clean and good for a nights sleep while passing through town. There are restaurants within walking distance.

The front desk service was poor due to the transition changes.
