We stayed two nights. The exterior could use some improvement, but for the location and value, we were very happy with our stay. The room came with a refrigerator. The hotel is walking distance to an 8 screen movie theater, Dunkin' Donuts, Subway, and a Wegmans Grocery store in addition to other businesses. Breakfast had Belgian Waffles with REAL butter,...

I have stayed at this hotel a few times now. The rooms have always been very clean with plenty of space. The rooms are outdated but that doesn't bother me. The staff has been exceptionally helpful each time I have stayed. They have gone out of their way to book the room that I wanted and even to start serving... More

After reading all the other reviews I honestly was worried but decided to give it a try. Is the motel old......yes. But the room was very clean. Does the room smell musty....a bit. But nothing a little Febreze couldn't handle (sprayed the room after we checked in before heading out for the evening). Is the bathroom small....of course but the... More

My wife and I arrived at 3:30 to find a room partially cleaned with two empty water bottles, filthy sheets and a used bar of soap in the bathroom. Thin walls as well. We did have clean towels so we knew the room was "cleaned." Definitely not recommended and we won't be back. Not for $122 per night.

All exterior doors to building ( with access to guest rooms ) were unlocked Management does not care and pictures very deceiving. Not... More

Opt for a Non Smoking room they are much better! The 1st night we needed a bed and everywhere from Canadaguia through to Geneva was full. The 1st room we were offered was a smoking room. It was minging and looked like something out of a 70s movie. We did get another room though, although the ONLY available was still... More

We read many scary reviews on trip advisor, but we decided to go ahead and book anyhow. It was not an extended stay. Yes, the motel is not fancy and yes, it is not up to date, but it was clean and the rooms were spacious. Best value for your buck. The continental breakfast was very basic. We booked a... More

We were desperate for a hotel room for a graduation weekend. All other hotels in the area were marked way up and two night minimums. This hotel was $99 and we were expecting the worst. All we wanted was clean and a place to lay our heads down. This place satisfied those needs. It seemed like it was redone recently.... More

I stayed here because it was the ONLY hotel available and just drove into town to visit my son at Hobart for the day. I should've left when I saw what the motel looked like on the outside but decided to stay since I was tired after flying in from an allnight flight. The room was dated and did not... More
