We stayed two nights and everything was great! Comfortable beds and room was well maintained and clean. Rooms were reasonably priced. Reception ladies were friendly and accommodating. Will stay again when we visit relatives in the area.

As I expected from a tiny motel in a tiny town, it's old and musty and needs updating but this review is based much more on the knowledgeability, or lack thereof, of the staff running the place. To at least start on a positive note- I requested a 1pm check in, because the standard check in time is 3pm but...

Don't know where the room pictured is, but doesn't look like what I had. You can see daylight around the air conditioner/ heating unit. Had some bugs. No coffee maker or hair dryer in room. Complimentary breakfast is an after-thought....pop tarts and eggos. All of this luxury and still cost nearly $80 a night. Would not recommend.

Traveling by motorcycle we like to stay on the state routes and stay in the smaller local owed motels when possible. Clean,friendly and affordable is what we look for. The park Motel has all this. It's older but has a great history. The girl at the front desk was very nice and showed us the rooms when we ask to...

From what I could see there's nothing remotely historical about this dump. We walked into our room and saw, on a rack above the door, a Styrofoam food container, full of food covered by mold. I would have complained but the office closes at 8 p.m. Clerk had never heard of the Donna Reed museum, which is just up the...

The wonderful people here made us feel right at home. We needed two rooms close together for our family and we able to accommodate all our needs. They even went out of the way to move a new flat screen into the room we had for the children so they could play their x-box. This is definitely the place to...

I stayed in the jacuzzi suite. For the low price it was everything and more than expected. The bed was super comfortable. The jacuzzi relaxed me. The log furnishings were very beautiful. The room was very clean. The staff was so friendly. They even directed me to the best places to eat and shop. They have a small free complementary...

We stayed for 3 days. Our room was never cleaned. We had our dogs with us and housekeeping never called and asked if we wanted our room cleaned or if we needed anything. I would have been glad to leave the room with our dogs so they could get in and clean up.

My experience with nikster0220. She came to check in with two dogs that day. She requested a bottom floor room. While we reserve these rooms for people with no pets; we still accommodated her on the bottom level. During her stay she was away or not answering her door and left her dogs in the room and the housekeepers were...

Very very dated facility. Our room was clean, very small, smallest bathroom I've ever seen in a motel room. Shower stall may have been original with the facility. Cheap enough that you'll likely have "entertainment" in the middle of the night listening to "interesting" noises emanating from around you... Will work hard to find an alternative next time... but would...

From the outside during the day, this motel looks a little run down but once inside the lobby and inside one of the rooms you will be pleasantly surprised. The lobby is clean and maintained and when you walk in you feel a little like you are stepping back into time. This hotel sits on the historic Lincoln Highway. My...
