We checked into Shaheen's the weekend of TinMan, although we were there for our granddaughter's high school graduation and not the race. Shaheen's has a two night minimum during extremely busy periods which we understood and accepted. The rooms are clean, quiet, bed clean and comfortable and although the motel is old, things are sparkling and up to date. When... More

There are only so many things I ask for in my accommodations. First, I want cleanliness; second, quiet; third, a kind staff; and finally, all of those things for a reasonable cost. Shaheen's fit all of the criteria. It's an old-school motel, which means good, solid block walls that keep out the sound from neighboring rooms. It was very clean,... More

I spent two day/nights at Shaheens Motel and was very pleased. I do this every year. Doing this at the coldest time of the year, there is not a lot more to say. The room was warm, bed was comfortable, in room coffee, lots of channels on the TV.

We traveled to Tupper Lake twice in February for snowmobiling and we stayed @ Shaheens. The place is clean, they use Eco products that are actually very good. The motel is right across from the trail, so the location is very convenient. The rooms have a fridge/microwave and tv with dish & HBO. They have 2 queen beds and in... More

Hi Esther J: Thanks so much for your review. We were glad to read that you liked our property and that you would definitely stay again; we appreciate that! Since the village opened up the trail system across from our motel, our snowmobile traffic has certainly increased. We do pride ourselves on our cleanliness; thanks for noticing. It was also...

Stayed in February. My first time there and I was impressed. The beds were very comfortable. Although the room was dated with a combination of painted concrete block and wood panel walls, and the bathroom looked like it hasn't been updated since the late 70's early 80's, the room was in pristine shape and felt cozy. Possibly the cleanest hotel/motel... More

We stayed at Shaheen's for one night after looking all over the internet for a good clean place to stay while we worked a snowmobile event in Childwold. Very spacious and probably the cleanest room I have reviewed in years. The heat was adjustable and worked very well, which was nice considering it was 15 below zero. There was a... More

I stayed at Shaheen's Motel this week. I found the service very good. The location is close to downtown yet quite and located in the trees. I would definitely stay again. There is a good amount of off street parking. Thanks
