Nice touches: basket of goodies for use in the kitchenette. Clean, warm room with nice hot shower. Back yard with grills, chairs, etc for outside lounging. Super nice staff. Close to Phoenicia and Belleayre.

Nice little place, friendly owner. Not fancy but very welcoming, clean and affordable. Comfortable bed made for a good nights sleep. Basket of items for breakfast made early departure easy. Perfect for my trip.

Our stay here was very nice. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms were very clean. There was plenty of room and the kitchen was a very nice bonus as well as the basket of breakfast goodies waiting for us upon our arrival. We did not use the lovely backyard because it was a little cool that night but... More

I love the backyard area, there are numerous sitting areas. My dog Cassie loves it here also. The past weekend we stayed in the... More

I'm so glad you tried our 4 bedroom Maplewood House. It is a great place to getaway with friends or on a small family reunion. As you can see the house is equipped with everything you need. And like the motel, it is located in close proximity to many conveniences and Catskills attractions. Thank you for making us your home... More

A wonderful motel. Great price, very clean- an amazing backyard that allows you to forget about the city. The proprietor is wonderful, friendly and helpful. Most importantly, very dog friendly. You will enjoy your stay.

The motel is old but has been redone with comfort in mind. The rooms are large and include a fully equipped kitchen. There are amenities like a picnic table and comfortable outside lounges. I left my chargers at home and was provided with a loaner which was great. We spent two nights and will return when we are in the... More
