We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this humble, affordable, clean, quiet motel. The owners are very nice and helpful. Free popcorn in the office. Wish we could find more places like this. There is nothing fancy, but it feels homey and comfy.

Our policies are more than fair. Most other place in our area charge deposits and have a much more stringent cancellation policy. You are correct we don't issue refunds for early departures. It is clearly posted at our check in desk and on your receipt....More

Early American Motel, located in the heart of Aurora and just 3/4 mile from beautiful Kentucky Lake! We have several different lodging accommodations to choose from that are excellent for families, hunters, More fisherman, or anyone else wanting to enjoy what the Kentucky Lake area has to offer. We feature clean motel rooms with microwaves, refrigerators, and coffee makers. We also have units with kitchenettes that will sleep up to five people. There's plenty of space outdoors and around the pool for picnics, cookouts or for just relaxing with friends. Less

We have many people that stay with us that are into photography and night sky viewing. We don't have much light pollution. I would be willing to give you a 10 percent discount so the cost of the room would be $49.45 plus tax... More
