Lynn's Motel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Effort
Reviewed June 21, 2005

I needed a place to stay close to the race track at Long Pond but everyplace was booked or more than an hour away. Finally, I found a yellow pages listing for Lynn's Motel in Effort, PA, less than 9 miles from the track. I couldn't find a website or any other information about Lynn's Motel but decided to give them a call out of desperation. The Pocono 500 was less that 3 weeks away and I had no place to stay. I called the motel and was surprised to find they still had rooms available. Carol, who I think may be the owner, bartender, receptionist, and cleaning lady, told me I would need to mail her a check to reserve the room. I was hesitant but mailed the check because I was out of options. I warned my Canadian friends who were meeting me for their first NASCAR experience that the place could be a dive!

We checked in on Friday night before a Sunday race and were pleasantly surprised! Now don't misunderstand, this isn't the Hilton or the Doubletree. But, the room was large, clean and comfortable. There is a large grassy area beside the motel that is perfect for a picnic or early tailgating. Lynn's is located in a VERY rural area, but a convenience store, diner, and a pizza shop are all within walking distance. You can drive a few miles to get groceries and beer for tailgating. Lynn's also has a small bar that sells beer to go! We enjoyed our stay at Lynn's and will stay there again! Lynn's Motel only has 6 or 7 rooms, so reserve early. When word gets out, it won't be a secret anymore!
