The motel is old in need to upgrade. Our room was small and linens questionable. The door would not shut tight. The curtain was broken. The receptionist was ill trained. And the motel was not even close to the interstate. The room smelled of stale smoke from previous smokers.

Room was comfortable and clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was on the lighter side with cereal and muffins and fruit. Was nice to have a full sized refrierator/freezer in the room. Great place to stay for the price, planning on staying there again!

Non-smoking room smelled like dead animals and stale cigarette smoke. They refused to change my room. The smell caused my kids to vomit. When walking back down to office, A latino man coronored me and groped me. The front office was not helpful or wanted to help me in any way. I would never endanger my family or my person...

We tried to contact the guest. This is a 100% Non Smoking and NO Pet facility. We saw guest taking pet inside the room and we politely requested to read of our policy. Guest provided inaccurate review and have requested to be flagged as inappropriate. Mike GM

I stayed here on the last night of a four-day trip for a family funeral. This was by far the nicest of the three hotels we stayed in. Check-in was quick, efficient and friendly; our room was spotlessly clean. My only suggestion for the hotel would be to offer more outlets for charging electronics (bedside lamps with outlets on the...

Have stayed here more than once and plan to stay again. It is so convenient to the State Fair grounds. Breakfast is adequate, nothing fancy. Not why we pick a place anyway. Bathroom is tiny but more than fit our needs. No microwave in room, if that's a deal breaker. We are usually busy at an event so don't have...

Spacious room. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Able to park right at door. The room was clean and attractive. The vanity was small but well lit, and the beds were very comf. Was a little worried because I hadn't heard of this hotel before but was happily surprised. It was a great value in a wonderful location

Stopped in Grand Island when freezing drizzle and snow made the highways hazardous a few days after Thanksgiving. This locally-owned gem was great. Very clean, good flat-screen TV to watch football, good shower. Seemed to be fairly recently remodeled. It is better than it looks from the exterior. Good price too.

I was surprised how clean and affordable this place is. Judy at front desk took care of my needs and early check in per our request without charging extra fees.
