We stayed 10/22. I've driven by this place so many times and just wondered about it. So this trip we stayed here at a reasonable rate too I might add.
The new owner lives on site and told us the history about the property - wow it goes way back. There are pictures in the hallway by the breakfast area that show the progress through the ages.
Our room had quilts on the bed (one was torn in the corner). The carpet was old and green but it was clean. The room was spotless actually. Yes, it's an older hotel but I couldn't find anything that I could complain about, nothing. The bed was nice, sheets were clean and towels were just fine. It was quiet too!
We asked for a recommendation for pizza and the owner/manager sent us right down the street. Oh yea look at my other review on that place.
When we came back we ran across the parking lot to the pool/hot tub room. The pool was so warm and the hot tub not overly warm....the room room itself was warm as well! The fact that this place even has a pool and hot tub, albeit you have to go outside to get there is great! I hope they let locals use it as it's a real treat in Lusk.
In the morning it was snowing so we decided to get up early and get going but before we did we checked out the breakfast room, which had all the normal morning eatery things.
This is a cute, historical hotel/motel and we look forward to seeing the progress the new owners make on updating the rooms. We'll be back!
