Just passing through NY and we stopped here for the night. Everything is very clean and staff are friendly. Beds were comfy. Loved the Bath and Body Works products. Better than average breakfast...gluten free bagels!! Kiddos loved the pancake maker machine.

Stayed for one night on our college tour circuit. From check-in to check-out it was a great stay. The folks at the front desk were so helpful in recommending a place to eat and even where I could buy a new car phone charger. The room was typical of HI Express and there were plenty of TV stations to choose... More

Dear Blondi Traveller Girl: We are so happy that your overall stay with us met your expectations. I agree with you that our outdoor patio is very attractive for a social gathering and sometimes, our guests do not realize how voices can carry in this protected little alcove. If you are a light sleeper, please request a room on the... More

Interior looks and feels modern and brand new. Friendly staff who was always willing to help. Comfortable beds, good-sized rooms, excellent water pressure in shower. Rooms aren't well insulated so if you... More

I travel and stay in many hotels, all national brands for business. This property has excellent staff, from front desk to housekeeper and breakfast attendant. Coffee was always fresh and available all day and night. Room was very clean and well maintained. The parking lot and driveway was cleared of snow almost hourly.

My 10 year old daughter and I stayed here the night before a local event. This brand new, perfectly maintained hotel was such a welcome surprise after a long drive! Every part of the stay was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.
