We have stayed at May's Polynesian Motel 4 yrs in a row for Harborfest in Oswego. It is owned by Steve and Jenny May, They pride themselves on catering to their guests. The rooms are immaculate and modern and very large. The motel is set away from the road on Rt 104 behind their store where they live with their... More

My family traveled from the West to the East Coast. We heard about May's Polynesian Motel and checked it out. We actually arrived after midnight and was warmly greeted by the manager. The place was very neat and clean and I loved the Hawaiian theme in the bathroom. We met the owner Steve and what a funny guy! The manager... More

We didn't even stay the entire night as the walls were paper thin. All we heard the whole time we were there was the person in the next room coughing.The bed was worn out,so bad that milk crates were holding it up. The price wasn't bad but I guess you pay for what you get.

My husband and I have been to May's hotel several times. Our first visit was in 2009. Steve and Jenny(she is from the Phillipiens) are so sweet. The rooms are always nice and neat. Fresh sheets and pretty towels. It is interesting when we stay there as there has been fisherman or families with children depending on the season of... More

I met a few friends in Oswego for a volunteer project at a local museum. My buddy made the reservation for the four of us based only on what he saw on the web. The reviews substantially over-rated this place. This is a cheap motel. Cheap furnishings, cheap fittings in the bathroom, cheap towels, cheap bed linens and poor housekeeping.... More

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
