My wife and I were on our way from Montreal to Rhode Island. I knew we were arriving in Montreal late but wanted to be on our way, and through the Boarder for a good start in the A.M. I believe Plattsburg is about 100Km (60 miles) from Montreal. I called the Motel and explained our situation. I explained: "with... More

This is a Motel that houses people for extended periods of time. Some of those tenants made us feel very uncomfortable/unsafe the two nights we were there as they watch every move you make. This is a non smoking motel so they provide old coffee cans for cig. Butts. The tenant in the room next door became very nasty when... More

The front desk Ladies are very nice and are helpful. There is WIFI but this is a password that protects it to other outside users. They are in the... More

The front desk lady, (the only person that works there) is very very rude, has no respect, and lets you know that nothing you say matters. They say free wifi also, and cable. Well the wifi would not work in two of the rooms we stayed in and the cable was less then basic. The tvs were non stop static... More

Friendly welcome and a nice renovated room. The owners are remodelling the rooms and this is to their credit. My room was fine and as expected. The only issue I had was that the nights sleep was poor due to a too firm mattress and there was a plastic covering over the mattress.This made it noisy and the sheet kept... More

I was delighted with the motel, the rooms were excellent. Having been disappointed by another hotel I the area, tried this motel and was delighted. Rene and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. They kept a lone Scotsman heading in the right direction by recommending places to see and to eat. I recommend this motel to everyone, come...

After being rudely bounced due to staff screw-up at America's Best Value Inn - 2 weeks before college commencement! - I was lucky enough to find accommodations at Rip Van Winkle. The desk lady was attentive and courteous taking my name/number and calling back a few days later as promised if rooms opened up which they did. We had 2... More

I come up at least twice a year to go fishing, and there's no place I'd rather stay. the staff treat us like family, and the grounds are excellent if you're bringing a boat. my friends and I bass fish all over the country and everyone love staying at the Rip.
