Michael at the front desk was terrific. And the property is solid. Very unique and you gotta appreciate retro to really enjoy it. Could use some touch ups here and there though. More of a 3 1/2 star hotel in my opinion.

Great theme and feel but as a boutique hotel it fell flat. It shows its age in areas of peeling paint, rust, etc. A little extra upkeep and it could be phenomenal but as it is now, we'll pass next time.

Decor was unique! Setting for Nebraska included ears of corn in the wallpaper and drapes. With current COVID19 precautions, no contact deliveries were available.
