My wife and I decided to stay in the Lincoln Motel to get a taste of "old Route 66" - wish we'd spent the extra $30 and gone to a chain motel instead.
The room (#103) was old, battered and ill cared for. The bed smelled musty, the bathroom was unpleasant with damp patches, rippling wallpaper, discoloured sealant around the bath - I could go on but a previous reviewers photos (of the same room) say it all.
The room was freezing when we entered, the thermostat on the wall controlled a decades old gas heater that gave off an acrid smell that stung our eyes and the room was so poorly insulated that when we turned the heater off the temperature dropped below freezing again within ten minutes.
We were glad to leave the Lincoln Motel, it's a shame to find an original landmark like this in such a state. On the way out we did notice some apparently more modern brick-built chalets on the end of the row - maybe these are more pleasant to stay in...?
