Worst night of my life. Couldn't sleep as the room was cold the entire time! There was no air-conditioner controller in the room to adjust the temperature, as the room is built central-aired, therefore somewhere else it was being controlled. I specifically requested a non-smoking room. Not true! Room was smelly of cigarettes and cigars, worst odor, ugh! Clothing dresser... More

We have been going to the Hi Way Rest, Now Relax In for years during our annual fishing trip. We knew the owner was selling when we stayed last year. We hoped that the new owners would keep this little secret of a hotel the same. Did not happen. The bathroom was not clean with woman's hair all on the... More

We stayed in room 16 at the Hi Way Rest Motel in late August, the owner was nice enough to leave the door open for us since we were arriving late at night. The room was spotless, the smell of the room was fresh, the beds were clean, we were greeted with a small kitchenette. The property looks like it... More

If you are looking for a nice, clean, no frills place to stay, let me recommend the HiWay Rest Motel. Not actually located in Rochester as Tripadvisor states but rather just east of the city in Webster, NY. A clean quaint Motel, close to Rt 104 and Baytown Plaza. It was quiet, the staff very friendly and very accessible. There... More

Nothing special, but the place was affordable. I paid $50 for Rochester, NY and really could not find an independent motel in the area that was affordable and still got good ratings on other search engines. The room was small, the bathroom was small, but it was clean. I am not spending a lot of time in my room when... More
