We were doing Route 66 end to end, and the Lincoln is one of the "historic" motels along the route so we chose to give it a try. It was rather late when we got there, and we just needed to get some rest.
The room (#107) was terrible and filthy. There was some sort of gunk on all the baseboards, electrical wiring STAPLED to the wall, the beds had a weird lean to them. Looking at the light reflecting off the walls, you could see where something had been spilled/splashed on them and never cleaned off. The fridge/microwave were covered in greasy fingerprints and god knows what other funk. The bathroom... hooboy. Now we stay in a lot of old "mom-n-pop" motels on our travels, so we're used to "old and tired" places. That's OK, that's expected. This bathroom was a complete mess and looked like housekeeping never lifted a finger in there other than to change the toilet paper. The cup holder was so dirty that I was able to write an "X" on the top of it with my finger. The shower was moldy and the tub filthy, and my wife spent 45 minutes getting it clean enough to use the next morning. Towels were thin as paper, rough as sand. It saddens me to see a part of the Mother Road kept in such a poor manner. I will never stay there again, nor will I recommend it to anyone. Take a photo as you go by, but don't waste your money here. I discussed the problems with the management in the morning, but either it was the language barrier or he just didn't care, nothing was done, no partial refund offered.
