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.

We stayed here while attending the Renaissance Festival in Sterling. Good proximity to the festival and rooms were great. We arrived late, and the hosts were very accommodating and recognized us when we went into the store the next morning. Although it is not a 5 start hotel, it is perfect for travellers! If we are in the area again,... More
