Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed at this hotel over the 4th of july weekend and we had a very good experiance. The Place was hospital clean, everything was in very good repair, the pool was warm and clean. It was within walking distance of the casino, bars, resturants, and shopping, there is also a ton of things to do and see withing short driving distance. The owners were very nice and wanted to do everything they could to make our stay the best it could be, we felt like family coming to visit. I would highly reccomend this hotel!

We loved the location of the Frontier Motel! If you get a room on the second floor, you get a great view of the river and can sit on the deck chairs outside your room. It is right next door to the casino and within a few blocks of the Eagles Landing Winery. The owner was very friendly, outgoing, and the hotel was VERY clean. There is a swimming pool outside as well and that is kept immaculate. We loved this place and will be back! There is noise from the trains but you are going to get that anywhere in town. It's a small town and the trains are just very loud.

This hotel is right on the Mississippi and right next door to the lady luck casino. The hotel is very outdated, but clean. The $100 a night price on this hotel is a bit much for what you get. The pool and lawn chairs outside the hotel were nice touches for a nice summer night. I would stay again if in this area.

The price was ok for a place to store my suitcase, walk to the casino, play a little, then sleep. The casino (Lady Luck) has no hotel. This is the next best thing. There is another hotel in town but it's pricier.
Bed was a bit hard and there were trains going by at night but the noise didnt bother me. (my husband complained a little)
There was no breakfast but the casino has a breakfast buffet daily 8-10 for about $7.

This is our fourth stay at this motel. It's a simple, non-fancy place. The rooms are little date, yet our room was clean & comfortable. We like that there are patio chairs outside of every room. It makes it easy to hang out enjoy the company of others. There is also a large pool with patio tables & umbrellas. They even have pool loungers and noodles to use free of charge. The motel is within walking distance to the Lady Luck Casino and to several restaurants & cafes. Great location right on the river & close to many roadways. We'll definitely stay again.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, request a room in the middle of the property. The trains at the switchi...

Two years ago we stayed at this motel and were impressed by the clean rooms and low rates even though the motel is dated. This year the rooms were twice as high as before. $110. nightly rate per room seemed high for the old place with water stained tiles, stained carpet, and poor faucets. We left for breakfast, and when we returned to freshen up before our return home, the maid had already cleaned the room, even though we left a "do not disturb" sign on the door. She said we could use the bathroom in the room next door. We will not be staying at this motel in the future.

The friendliest people own, work and stay at this place. Always fun to sit outside and visit with other guests (when the weather cooperates). Todd, the owner is nice to talk to and very helpful.
The location next to the Lady Luck casino is a real bonus.
