This motel is very clean and well-maintained. Hubby and I were very comfortable. Room had 2 queen beds, microwave and fridge, coffee maker, hairdryer - everything you would expect in a well-appointed room. And it was very clean! Rate was good, owners friendly, and breakfast included. There are no major chains in this village, but none are needed with this... More

This motel is very well maintained. The rooms are either on the 1st or 2nd floor and are basic rooms with two queen beds or they also have a family room available. They serve a continental breakfast in the office which I did not have but looked decent. The rooms, pool and the property are very clean. Parking is ample... More

Cleanest room ever, very friendly owners. Great place. Has a cool retro vibe with the wood paneling. We were in town to visit the Wild center with a group of 11, had 5 rooms and not a complaint from anyone. Would recommend this hotel for families and groups.

My wife and I were visiting the area to see Wild Center.This motel is centrally located and clean, fresh and well kept. Soft comfortable beds, rooms have micro waves, fridge, front door screens for open roomy feel. The bathroom was so clean and fresh; not a speck of mildew anywhere. Nice breakfast serviced early to start your day.

We stayed only one night as we were visiting specifically to visit the Wild Center, right around the corner. Shaheen's is, by far, the nicest motel we've ever visited! Huge room, we'll appointed and with 3 of us, they prepared the room with ample towels and washcloths bearing that in mind....very thoughtful! We kept commenting how incredibly clean it was... More

We've stayed with them several times now and we're always impressed with how well-maintained it is. Very clean and neat, and nice folks. If only the rest of the town were half as nice since Tupper Lake is such a dump. The Wild Center is right around the corner from the motel and is well worth a visit.

I agree with all of the positive comments posted here by others. Also, we needed to stay in the handicap accessible room which was very comfortable. Every other accessible room I have stayed in has had something wrong, odd, uncomfortable and/or inaccessible about it. Not this one!

Not big on motels , but wanted to see wild center and hike a bit. They had cancellation and we booked. Cleaner than many hotels. Beds were very comfortable and prices very reasonable. You can tell these folks care about cleanliness and comfort. Coffee and muffins in the am were nice touch.

This motel was a pleasant surprise. I'll be honest. I tend to shy away from motels. They just seem, I don't know... low class? How wrong I was.
