Although the motel is outdated and does not have non-smoking rooms (the only major negative as this stay our room smelled strongly of smoke), it is close to the fairgrounds and we stay twice a year for the local dog show. The room is always clean and there is plenty of green space to walk dogs. The restaurant is very... More

We were passing through the area and had been calling and calling hotels looking for a place to stay. Everyone, absolutely everyone, was full, except Western Ranch Motor Inn, and now we know why. The room was extremely dated, which I don't mind, if it is clean. This room was not. Housekeeping did a good job with clean towels and... More

Although I have never stayed a this motel, we recently stopped here for dinner. The food was surprisingly very good, as well as the service. We have no complaints whatsoever. It was good simple home cooked food at very reasonable prices. The check for two of us including two non-alcoholic beverages came to only around $20.00. It is a quiet... More

My father & I stayed here this past Saturday night for the NYS Fair. From the reviews I wasn't sure what we would be getting ourselves into, but were willing to try it as all the other hotels wanted $120 more, and we only needed a place to sleep and take a shower. We were very pleased with our stay... More

I love classic old funky hotels for my American travel experiences, and found this one by searching for an inexpensive place to stay in Syracuse that was *not* a chain. It's an old motor inn from the 1940s, surrounded by a gravelly lot and not much else! Thankfully there is an old-school cafe on the premises and a tavern with... More

I stayed at the motel on a trip to the Syracuse Antiques Show in Liverpool as a dealer/exhibitor. There were several other dealers that I met in the dining room who told me that they have been staying at the motel for many years and were happy with the service and the price. The decor isn't great and the furnishings... More

Being a lover of older motels, I had found this place by looking at other reviews here. We were a bit surprised at how far from town it was. I have no idea what road was where I-690 is in 1948, but we were way out of town. This place was about what I expected. It is a pretty large... More

This place is a classic roadside hotel, from the price to the decor. I have stayed here 3 or 4 times and the rooms are a little run down but they are clean. I have never stayed there when it was busy (such as during the State Fair), so they might be overwhelmed at those times. When I have stayed,... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the night of August 30, 2006. We planned on going to the NYS Fair the next day and instead of driving that morning, we stayed here. I checked on different web sites and this hotel seemed to get really great reviews. What were they thinking?! As soon as we walked into the... More
