Was in the area to visit family and needed a place to stay that wouldn't cost me a second mortgage on my house. This is your basic motel, not bad but nothing special. I had none of the rude surprises as mentioned by some of the other reviewers, the owners were pleasant and accommodating. And I may well stay there...

Let me start by saying the motel is up for sale so I don't know if the owners have lost interest or what. They are a really nice couple and gave us some good tips about things to do in the area. The housekeeper knocked around 10 AM and we were not quite ready to leave the room yet so...

We planned a last minute overnight and settled on one of the chain hotels there just to find that we were overbooked and didn't have a room. The only place in the area that did was Lane's Motel. It is ranked #5 of 5 because it just cannot compete with the other 4 given that it is an old school...

This is an older motel right on the main drag, close to the casino and right next to the Dairy Queen. It has been updated inside with new TV's and it has a mini fridge which is nice, but it's nothing spectacular. You enter your rooms from the outside parking, no deadbolts on the doors. There was a coffee maker...

My girlfriends dad suggested this to us, said it was cheap. I think $76 was my total. Fridge, microwave, coffee pot, etc. The place was clean, i'll give them that. My only complaints was that the bed was harder than Chinese trigonometry and the pillows were pretty thin. Needs renovated, its kind of like stepping back in the 80's. its...

I stayed here for 3 months while in town for work. This is a very small town so I basically heard the whole story but the abbreviated version is that the original owner passed and now the family owns it and the property is presently for sale so the property is quite outdated and much in need of said updates....

Very agreeable managers. Motel was close to all events I was participanting in. Room was large and met my needs. Room does need to be really cleaned, updated and refreshed. Than raise the daily rates to cover the cost of the improvements.

After reading a few previous reviews we made reservations at the Lane in French Lick, IN for 2 day stop over to another destination. With the historic area hotels as competition the price for this motel was higher than normal. This is a typical 60's style older motel that offers door parking, mini-fridge & MW and not much else.
