Given the price paid for this hotel, I was disappointed. The room was small by american standards, the whole mattress was swinging every time my partner was moving a bit, there was no water pressure and the breakfast room was too small to accommodate all the guests. There was only 1 tiny shampoo bottle, 1 tiny conditioner bottle and 1... More

Just stayed one night en route to Niagara. Checked in really late and asked if we could check out late. The guy at the front desk was very accommodating and let us stay till 2 PM (regular check out is 11 AM). I and my wife were very happy with what we needed most out of our stay - a... More

There are 4 of us so it is a little crowded but all in all it is fine. The floor did not look like it had been vacuumed (my wife noticed:>)). Everything else seems okay. Breakfast is not too bad for this type of hotel offering. It had pretty quick access to the interstate. An affordable acceptable play to stay.

In Albany, New York for one night and we chose to stay at this hotel. Arriving around 5:30, we signed in at the desk. Clerk was efficient but seemed like he was reading a script. Went to our room and was greeted with a crumpled pillowcase left on the bed. Turned on the A/C unit and rested for a while... More

I made the reservations via an agent with Choice Hotels. On our last day at the motel,we were asked to vacate the room early so that they could accomodate... More

What should've been a great family and golf trip turned into a nightmare when the reservation desk completely screwed up our room. My father booked for three nights June 18-21 to visit my two uncles, friends and some golf. It was supposed to be two paid nights and one free night with rewards points my dad accumulated. The lady who... More

We needed a room for one night on our way New Hampshire. The hotel was a good value. It's close to the interstate and easy to find. It's behind a restaurant that is out of business so it is a little removed from the highway noise. Everything about the room was fine. If the place is full the breakfast area... More
