I was pleasantly surprised after reading the reviews on this motel. I am on a long road trip and frequently stay in Kearney. At check in, I was asked if I needed 2 beds as I am travelling alone. I was then given the option of a room with 1 bed, which was fine. I did have to ask for... More

It's an okay place to stay. Not a 5 star by any means but the rates were good and even though the hotel is pretty old, it was clean, but did have the old musty order smell. But for our late night needs stay, it was okay.

The staff here was very customer-service oriented, very, very nice. Positive: The rooms had two doors, one to the parking lot, one to the inner hall, so that it was easy to unload the car, but one could walk down to the lobby and the breakfast area via the inner hall and not have to brave the cold. Nice indoor... More

This hotel is old, hey they still use metal keys, but it was clean and available on the spur of the moment. Don't expect too much, but it's not bad for the price. I had a comfortable stay and they even gave me one of the big suite rooms at the end of the property. The staff was friendly, and... More

We chose this place due to its proximity to the highway and the amenities. The price was great too! Hubby likes the motor lodge feel, I like the inside hallway access, well, this place had both. They gave us a discount coupon for the restaurant across the street, a decent barbecue place named whiskey creek. The indoor pool was cold,... More

We stayed here on our way from Wisconsin to Colorado because the rates we found online were really reasonable. We had a room with two double beds and it was clean. An included continental breakfast was a bit disappointing (cold cereal, toast, waffles and coffee). I like to have some fruit for breakfast or maybe some juice. We stopped back... More

Was a very busy place for whatever reason, hotels around looked full. Tried this place, it's not the most inviting. However, the lady on the desk very nice, showed us the room which was sparse but looked like it had been repainted, the bedding was very nice and looked new. No thrills, no pictures on the walls; a/c struggled with... More

Liked that we could park and unload right in front of the door like 1950 motels, but there was a second door that led into a central hallway. It was two queen beds, comfortable enough, a flat screen TV, microwave and frig. It had an indoor pool we didn't use. They served a barely adequate breakfast with waffles and some... More

There was a $2.50 fee for using a credit card. The wifi is not password protected, so anybody can view your online information. The rooms are in a general state of disrepair. The alarm clock and one of the lamps did not work. The front desk manager was rude. We were charged an extra $20 for our dog--this fee was... More

Pros: Decently priced (we paid US$41 for two people for one night), close to the highway and restaurants, clean, good shower. Cons: The motel and the area leave little to be desired, which is ok, because it only cost $41. The room had a stinky air-freshener in it which we removed. The microwave smelled awful. My boyfriend was less happy... More
