I just want to say that most of these complaints seem over exaggerated. We stayed for 2 nights and the room was clean. It is outdated, but for the price was fine. It wasn't anything fancy, but I felt right at home. The staff was nice, and they were a child friendly place. It was very quiet and I slept... More

We have stayed at this motel years ago and thought it would be okay. It was only for one night and everything else was booked. We checked in around 2 p.m. and just dropped our bags off. We had some doubts but decided it would probably be okay for one night. Spent the whole day at Presque Isle and returned... More

the air did not work, the queen bed was really a full bed , the mattress and box spring looked like they went through a flood, the carpet was bad indoor/outdoor, the bathroom walls had the paint peeling, there was rust on the heat unit, the chair had holes in it, need I say more!

Booked this room sight unseen in the car. Payed 112 dollars for filth. Cigarette holes in bedding dirty sheets it was so bad we went and bought new sheets. broken window fixed with newspaper they must be joking. Bottom line these rooms are dirty and nasty they should hang a sign in each room that says "Wipe your feet before... More

Unfortunately we are in this room for the night. Seriously killed 7 spiders and had baby spiders on me. I thankfully brought Raid with me, and Lysol of course. This 'kitchenette' is a mess. The blue curtains have large brown areas on them. The room itself is dusty and full of cobwebs. It's gross. I stayed here 2 years ago... More

But I knew what I was getting into. I read up before I booked and saw all the nasty comments but I wanted an overnight room for 4th of July near Waldameer Park that wouldn't break me and this was the cheapest I could find on short notice. The guy over the phone acted like he was doing me a... More

BEWARE!!! absolutely disgusting!! The bathroom was not cleaned and the carpet was not even vacuumed. Certain bodily fluid stains all over the room. The place should be shut down. The pool looked to be the only bearable thing, but I wouldn't risk it after seeing everything else. Paid $100 for the room to end up at splash lagoon for $140.... More

The first red flag at this place was when we were checking in. There were several strange people just loitering around. We went up to our room and within 5 seconds had to kill about 4 spiders that were hanging from the drop ceiling. Our kids were immediately freaked out. The smell of stale cigarettes and cheap air freshener was... More

The place is very outdated. Our room had a very musty smell, dark and just distusting. There were only 2 lights that worked in the room. The TV was an old large unit in a cabinet and the remote did not work at all. The cabinet the tv was sitting on was missing a drawer. We did not have a... More

The staff was ignorant and unwilling to help me get clean towels, people are just as trashy as this place. The rooms are disgusting--should have looked at the reviews on here before staying! I will never stay here ever again.
