This hotel is everything that the reviews describe and less. We expected an older, smelly and ill maintained facility...we got it. We expected an inflated price due to lack of vacancies in town...we got it. We expected a complimentary breakfast as indicated on their webpage...we didn't get it. We expected the owner to compensate us for not providing breakfast that... More

Where to start... This was our last choice, the other hotels in town were booked because of a couple events at the college. We checked in Friday night, the room was fine, not good but not bad. We had a couple questions for the front desk about the TV and they tried to help us but they weren't helpful and... More

This hotel was very old and really falling apart and not kept up at all. The stairs and the railings were old and shakey and unsafe!! Everything in the room was old, the rugs the bedding the furniture, everything!! The shower did not work properly, the water went from hot to cold and then back again without any control -... More

I booked a room here for two nights for a friend's wedding after finding the Microtel had no more vacancies (have stayed there in the past and was very pleased). After booking, my boyfriend looked it up and was finding some pretty laughably bad reviews. It seemed the more recent reviews were a little more positive and it was pretty... More

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 The rooms are outdated but that doesn't bother me.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.
