It will take some more time and some more money but this motel's inn keeper appears to be up for the task. While my room was large, the bathroom stand up shower definitely will need to be replaced. It was very small and if you turned around you felt the slickness of the shower curtain on you. (Ugh!) For the... More

A small motor inn run by a very nice family who couldn't have been more pleasant, and according to the sign out front it is under new management. However the place is dated and needs some sprucing up. The shower in our room (108) ran hot and cold, literally. The temperature would cycle spontaneously between ice and scalding, so you... More

Stayed here for weeks at a time due to business during this past summer/fall (1-3 rms at a time). No its not the Hilton people, and it sure didn't cost like the Hilton....so get off your pedestals! We've stayed at every hotel imaginable & this little roadside hotel was the best value we've stayed at this past year. Room was... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was a little hesitant on staying here. To my surprise, it neat, clean, bright and cheery. Management was very pleasant and had a nice continental breakfast. The beds were very comfortable.

Let's be honest ... for the cost of this hotel you should not expect the place to be as nice as the Marriott or Hilton or other large chains in the area. But the place is clean, the beds are comfortable and the folks there are friendly and nice. The place is a little older than most properties but was... More

This motel was ok, there aren't many choices in the area to choose from. It is located very close to Clarkson University, so it was easy to get to after hockey. The beds were really comfy, but the bottom sheet kept sliding off. I know some places don't use fitted sheets anymore but waking up on a mattress is a... More

We were travelling through the area a few months back and we needed a place to stay for one night to rest and recuperate. We saw the reviews for this place were pretty rough but the most recent reviews were better, so we figured considering it is very inexpensive and we only wanted one night, we would give it a...

For the area, I thought this motel was a good price. The beds were VERY comfy, and there was a breakfast included. The breakfast was a bit uninspiring, but there was fruit, coffee, and some packaged danishes and muffins. Enough to tide us over. I do wish I had access to coffee before 7am when breakfast was offered. The location... More

The lobby smelled, the shower door didn't close, the water went from hot to cold, the hair dryer had sparks coming out. The lights went out on their own. Out side lights by all the motel doors were blinking in the early hour of the morning. I could keep going like not wanting to give us a receipt for cash... More

The inn is actually a motel along a highway. I was not impressed with it at first but then realized it was clean and comfortable. It had a dorm style refrigerator and small microwave. There were 2 queen size beds, 2 chairs, a desk, bureau and a TV. Bathroom was small but adequate. The breakfast area could be improved a... More
