The room rate was pretty cheap, that is your first clue. Upon opening the room a smell that seems like it is chemical in nature in an attempt to cover something else up. Towels smelled clean but upon further inspection were stained with God knows what. Looked inside the coffee pot to find some coffee still inside it and a... More

Here is a list of items out room did not come with: Phone, remote, hangers, closet pole to hang clothes, ice bucket, cups, coffee pot wall decorations. Hair dryer Ironing board The room looks like it was recently remodeled. The loose fitting sink would attest to that. The mattress was less than 5 inches thick and was foam. It was... More

The room was so smelly. The sheets and towels were dirty. I had my do not disturb sign out on door and the housekeeper still came into our room. I will never stay at this motel again. The worst one I have ever seen.

This was the absolute worst experience. Better business bureau and health department should shut this place down. Service was horrible. The manager understood NOTHING we were saying but had plenty to say. Apparently large maintenance ladders are safe to have in the pool area as well as the pool vacuum in the pool while patrons are swimming. We were told... More

I chose this hotel because every other decent hotel in town was booked for the dates we needed. I found their website and it looked like an acceptable hotel with all the conveniences you'd expect from a good hotel. However, I found that online hotel shopping, much like online dating, can result in real world disappointments. We walked into our... More

We were traveling with a group and had planned our trip well in advance (5 months). When we arrived at the motel I was told that my reservation had been cancelled. I said I did not cancel the room and was told that the computer does not lie, people do. So much for customer service. The only rooms available were... More

I have been going there for years. Prices have soared in past year. Not too clean but adequate. But the staff is RUDE and accusatory. Insinuated that a friend stole the towels when room was reassigned because the lights did not work. Big sign in room warning guests about taking their property. They threatened tto charge for the towels for... More

The hotel room seemed nice, but as soon as I walked in it had a weird smell and tried to turn on the lights they wouldnt come on. Went to plug the lights and the clock in and there was no outlet near them. Me and my friend went back to Waldameer while my mom stayed there. When we returned... More

We went to the lake to enjoy Labor Day and stayed for the 4th and 5th of Sept. The usual owners, who also manage and work the entire place, were not there upon check in they had a nice young couple covering for them who did not know how to use the computer system for billing. Instead of the owner... More
