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

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

We only stayed for one night en route to Killington VT for New Years. We chose Shaheen's after reading all the good reviews. The motel is just like the other reviewers say.

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

We came for leaf peeping, and the location was perfect since it is located in the heart of color country. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The place is amazingly well sound proofed. Despite the fact that the motel was completely full, we never heard a sound from the other guests. It was relatively chilly in the area, but... More

Beds were comfortable, room was super clean and quiet. Rates are very reasonable. The only con was that the office doesn't open until 7:30 AM for continental breakfast, which is late for those of us who like to get an early start. Water from bathroom faucet tasted "musty" - may want to bring your own water for drinking purposes.
