$59 a night and allowed pets. We brought in our pets and bags and went out to get a quick bite to eat. Came back and bugs were crawling across the bed. Not 1,2 but many. At first they didn't want to refund my money until I said I want them to sleep in the room. Couldn't find another hotel... More

The rugs? Crunchy. The sheets? I doubt they've been washed recently. The heart-shaped tub? I'm hopeful that the water gets hot enough to kill any pathogens that might be lurking within. Mirrors on the wall? Oh yeah, you know what I'm talking about! Do the amenities really matter to two teenagers looking to get busy in something other than the... More

My husband and I chose this hotel on a business trip to save our organization a little money (we work for a small nonprofit). Our conference was in Schenectady, and the motel was easy to get to from the highway, only about a 8-minute drive. We stayed two nights. The hotel was built in the 1960s, and still had much... More

I almost passed on this place because of the reviews. But, The weekend was going to be expensive enough already, I figured why not? I haven't stayed in a dive in a long time. I was pleasantly surprised!! Comfortable bed and a clean room. Easy to get on and off I-90 and I-890. Bring your own shampoo, soap and conditioner.... More

I conduct my consulting business from here and host business associates as guests regularly. My guests have never complained.. The place is clean: I daily watch the proficient housekeeping staff scour vacated rooms. So I say again: NICE PLACE, NICE PRICE!

This is a very run down motel. It is a motel for transients or welfare residents, as we witnessed. We ate the charge of $134.00 rather than stay there. We drove 4 hours home instead.
