Several of my family members made an inpromptu stay at Aspinwall. We found Barb and Gary to be very friendly and helpful. My dad and brothers were looking for good fishing spots and Gary gave some great hints. Our family was a bit indecisive about where we wanted to go - we ended up staying here for 3 nights. The...

The motel decor was cute, the owners were friendly, and the setting was peaceful. Was happily surprised by how clean it was and loved the little diner next door for breakfast. If you are looking for a nice room in the Henderson area, I would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I just spent 2 weeks at this motel. Barb and her husband are super people and this motel is beautiful. The rooms are so clean and bright. The beds are real beds not motel type. Our room had white wicker furniture. The quilts on all the beds are beautiful. She has coffee and danish each morning. I... More

I've heard my dad rave about this little gem in upstate New York for years, so finally (thanks to a booking mix up) I got to see it for myself. With three additional travelers in tow on our way to a marketing conference in Toronto I suggested we spend our first night of the trip (although slightly out of our... More

We have stayed many times in this small family owned property. The hosts Barb and Gary go out of their way to meet all your needs. The rooms are exceptionally clean and neat. They are decorated impeccably and the rates are very reasonable. I'd highly recommend the Aspinwall for anyone looking to stay in the Watertown NY area.

What a great little motel! Very clean and comfortable. Barbara provides the best hospitality one could hope for. She went so far as to lay out some towels by our motorcycles in the morning so we could wipe them down. Pastries and coffee she put out held us over until we found a place for breakfast (the diner across the... More

Since our last visitors are not computer savy, I feel compelled to write about this wonderful motel in our neighborhood. We have only one bedroom at our camp, so we tell everyone about Aspinwall Motel. This past week end our cousins stayed there and raved how nice the owners were and how clean the rooms are. Cannot ask for better... More

Thank you for the kind words. We do our best for our guests and it is good to have our efforts mentioned in Tripadvisor reviews. We use the reviews when we get to travel so we know how they can help a small business like our motel. Hope your summer was a good one. Thanks again. More

I found the Aspinwall Motel through a search on Trip Advisor. The photos looked great, and my first impression with the owner on the phone was also great. We were pleasantly surprised to find a cute, clean room, a continental breakfast and a wonderful price. When I called to say we'd be arriving late, the owner accommodated nicely, found us... More

We're glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the review. They really help our guests and our motel business. Our motel isn't flashy like the big chains but we try to offer a little personality with each visit. Most of our guests return many times each year so we know their needs and try to make them feel...

We stayed here on our way from Michigan to Nova Scotia by motorcycle. It was nicely decorated and super clean. We could not have asked for a nicer motel! The town is small but the view across the harbor is beautiful.

Thanks for your review. We may be tied down in the motel business but we get to talk to so many folks that are having fun adventures so we get to hear about their experiences. Ride safe and maybe we'll get back to riding. Thanks again and glad you enjoyed your stay, Gary and Barb. More
