At first we were put off by the fifties/sixties feel - definitely an old-style motel from a bygone era. However, it was spacious and clean and had a bar fridge, luggage tray, big & comfy bed, roomy place to hang clothes and practical no-frills bathroom. That said, decor was dated and bland. Still, it was nice to be able to... More

Stayed there on the weekend. It is a basic family run hotel that is very well kept. May not be modern, but more than adequate, it is what we prefer to the cookie cutter repeatable sterile chain motels and rooms. Something is being lost as these non-corporate American family run motels are being over run with large corporate chain motels... More

We can only agree with the many positive reviews of this motel. We've been returning here regularly for many years now as it is close to lots of Finger Lakes wineries, hiking trails, restaurants and other site-seeing. This small family-run motel offers10 large pleasant rooms and landscaping with several large shade trees. Rooms are always spotless and comfortable and each... More

Very average ten room motel where you drive right up to the door of your room - it is kept up nicely - clean room and bathroom, new flat screen TV - but mostly everything is straight out of the 1970's. My room had a connecting door to the room next door and I unfortunately had to listen to the... More

My family and I (four persons) were looking for an inexpensive but clean and comfortable place to sleep and shower in the Canandaigua/Geneva area, and Clark's turned out to be just what we wanted. We were extremely happy to find a motel room in the central Finger Lakes region for Labor Day weekend for about $80 a night, including the... More

Yes, the decor may be outdated, but the room was super clean, the bed comfortable, and the price was right. If you are looking for a good value for your money, Clarks Motel will provide it. It is not fancy, does not have the extras, but provides the basics. We would absolutely stay again. Check out the beautiful jade plant... More

We stayed here over the weekend and was very satisfied. The price was very good compares to the other places which were more than we could afford. And since we only slept here we didn't need the "extras". The rooms were clean and spacious. The service very friendly. Will stay here again next year.

What a great motel! We were going to a college tour at Hobart and William Smith and had driven a long distance on Friday. We arrived a little before 11:00 pm and were leaving by 8:00, so it seemed crazy to spend $200 for a big name hotel room. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was large and clean. The... More

If you desire tip top accommodations, I suggest you go elsewhere; however, if you need a basic, relatively clean motel with a small park and gazebo, Clark's Motel is right for you. The property is run and owned by a venerable couple. Les and Linda Excell have owned the ten room roadside since 1979. We booked for four nights. (8/3-8/7)... More

What a great motel. First, this place is as clean as a new nickle... spotless. The owner operators of this property take care of things themselves. It was like a flashback to the 50/60's with a large room, nice furnishings (looked new), the softest towels and sheets, and a most wonderful king size bed. The property is set back in... More
