Very friendly service. The room was large, clean, quite and comfortable. The front door was worn but did not affect our stay. Woke up to a cool morning with a beautiful sunrise. Took a walk in the immediate area. The restaurant next door fulfilled all our needs. Very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here due to a family function....when I told my cousin we were staying here she said, oh you should have stayed at the other motel. I found out when I checked in why she said that. The couple who owns it can not speak much English and are not very friendly. I had booked two rooms and they...

Our visit in this motel was necessitated because of late night travel. It was a hot July night and the air conditioner froze up, the tv reception was poor and we were unable to get an internet connection. It was clean, but the beds were old and sagged. The male receptionist was rude and spoke very little English. The owner/operators...

Our 3-day stay at the Frontier Motel on highway 36 in Oberlin, Kansas was very comfortable. The very spacious rooms are dated, but comfortable, well maintained and well supplied. All of our needs and requests were met by Sharyn, the manager, and by her cleaning staff. The attached cafe was convenient and very good (see separate review for the Frontier...

Due to lack of rooms available at any other hotels in town, we decided to try the Frontier. This was a terrible decision for our family. We wasted money on two rooms. Both rooms were in horrible condition, wholes in the ceiling, tiles falling off the walls, and smelled horrible. In the first room, we had the option of the...

“We had 2 adjoining rooms, each with 2 double beds and a shared full bath. One of the rooms had a full-sized refrigerator and a microwave. Each room had a recliner chair -- COMFY! There was plenty of room for luggage as well as our mom's walker. The entire facility is handicapped accessible.”
