Super cute motel, guy at the front desk (I forget his name) was so very friendly, I wound up getting sick the day we were supposed to leave and he was so caring and helpful. We wound up staying another day/night. Rooms are affordable, and clean and neat with everything you might need. In ground pool was beautiful too, clean...

We liked this hotel. The price was fair and the view was nice and well kept. Everything was within walking distance of this hotel. Everything meaning a café, a gas station and a casino if you so choose. Quaint motel, clean and the owner was very nice and cordial. No breakfast included, but it is nice to stay at. Not...

Stopped here with my Brother and Sister-in-law while on a motorcycle road trip. Our rooms were very nice, very clean, apparently recently remodeled. Definitely at the top of the 2 star motels. (2 stars provide all the services I need, and there's a pool) The motel is basically next door to a casino; about a one minute walk away. It's...

We had read several of the reviews previously posted. They were very accurate that the motel is extremely clean and well-kept. The owners of done some very nice landscaping around the pool. The pool is incredible! We were on the second floor and the view of the river was very nice. The facility is dated, but it is incredibly clean....

We stopped here on a road trip down the Great River Road. Within walking distance to the Lady Luck Casino. Motel is very clean, and comfortable. Not many amenities, but perfect for a stay! Nice outdoor pool, chairs and table outside every door. Felt safe and comfortable. Train tracks but never heard the train during the night.

I've stayed here several times and never been disappointed. Very clean with an old fashioned vibe. I like the fact I enter right into my room, no roaming long hallways or climbing a lot of stairs. The people who own the place and those who work there are extremely friendly and helpful.

We loved the location of the Frontier Motel! If you get a room on the second floor, you get a great view of the river and can sit on the deck chairs outside your room. It is right next door to the casino and within a few blocks of the Eagles Landing Winery. The owner was very friendly, outgoing, and...
