At least the police seem to check it regularly. Otherwise it was way below our standards. The motel is old and badly located, unless being near the Thruway is all you want. I found it depressing. We went back to using the Days Inn after staying here once.

I've found hell on earth. My family stayed here on a whim when all other hotels below $100 in the area were full. When I arrived, I used the bathroom In the lobby. The toilet had dried diarrhea on it and there was a missing handle on the sink. One of the customers was in the lobby complaining he saw... 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
