Nice makeover on this old motel. Bed was comfortable, and room clean as a whistle. Mr. coffemaker and small fridge in room. No microwave. Cute little tv with basic cable. Free wi-fi. Quiet surroundings and friendly host. Basically, everything you need for a comfortable overnight. But paying $140/ night for this type of accomodation, we felt overcharged. We'll just say... More

Dear Lisa, We appreciate your patronage and value your positive feedback. Microwaves and ironing boards are indeed available upon request. For those with a budget in mind and in lieu of a one night stay on Saturday, Sunday or midweek would generally provide a lower room rate. As for the local 13% taxes added as was cited in your total... More

My wife and I occasionally stop at motels like this one...non-chain, older and therefore a little nostalgic for a bygone era. Rarely are we unhappy with our choices. Sleepy Hollow Motel is another good choice. The motel is clean and comfortable and very clearly well-maintained. The sleepy Hollow Motel is conveniently located between Auburn and Skaneateles. We were intending to... More

The room was, indeed, almost freakishly clean. We enjoyed friendly service when we arrived for two nights in June. The room fabrics felt dampish and beds were too soft for our comfort. Your results may vary.

I give this rating because it's was pretty close to perfectly spotless. Yes, it's a motel on the side of a road a few miles from the quaint Skaneatles, there's no granite in the bathroom, no plush duvet, but at appx $100 per night, where are you going to find a truly immaculately kept place like this? No where except... More

If you're looking for a hotel with a Jacuzzi, valet service, and complimentary bottle of Cristal, this may not be your place. If, on the other hand, you're the kind of person who enjoys getting some R&R in quaint rural areas, and just want a clean room, soft bed, and friendly service, I could not recommend Sleepy Hollow more highly....

This is a nice motel just a couple of miles outside the main part of Auburn. We did not know what to expect with this hotel. When we arrived we were greeted and checked in by I believe the owner. Check in was smooth and simple. The rooms were also simple and clean with fantastic retro decor. Comfortable beds, small... More

It is clean, and friendly enough. It doesn't smell like cigarettes or sweat, but it is a motel room, and $135/night is a lot. No AAA, or other discounts given It is well lit, and nothing about it reminds you of it's name. Just a room, at a high price in the middle of nowhere

Just a couple of points for clarifications: The price of rooms vary with day of the week, type and number of people, and is also subject to a state and local tax of 13%. (The price reviewed here included the rate, plus tax.). But thanks for the sniff test, and YES cleanliness is JOB #1 in our establishment ! Yes,... More

This is a very basic, quaint motel. It has definitely seen better days, but the rooms were clean, quiet and the front desk was helpful. Inexpensive places are few and far between in the area. I recommend this motel.

My husband found this motel online and it sounded fine so we booked in for two nights. It's driveways are in need of weeding/repair and that didn't fill me with confidence but the room was clean, welcoming and although a bit dated, it had everything we needed. The bedclothes felt damp but I would blame that on the humidity and... More
