This is not your Commercial High end hotel however, it is a great price. Hotels are very expensive in Oswego and it is sometimes hard to find a place for a reasonable price and This is very satisfactory for the price. Every thing is dated but, it is very well maintained and the Owners are so great to deal with.... More

Everything in town was booked up as we arrived late. The owners were already gone but nice to come back and check us in :). Supper nice people! The outside is freshly painted but inside needs some work. Remember this is not a 5 star resort but an older hotel type. First of all let me start out by saying,... More

The couple that owns the motel have about 5 kids, between 4-11. They are everywhere. Be prepared for this. Crying, scooters, a trampoline..... The owners are polite and obviously care about their motel. And with that many young kids, it has to be very hard for them. They are doing their best. Just remember, if you go out side of... More

We stayed here last year during Harborfest and decided to stay again while visiting family. Located on State Route 104 a couple of miles East of Oswego. If you need a nice low cost, clean place to sleep this is it. Nothing fancy but clean and also a friendly owner/staff. They also have lots of good food in their store.
