3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a basic roadside motel, but we had a clean room, clean sheets and hot water, which is exactly what we had expected.
They have non/smoking rooms, and you car is parked in front of your room.
The air conditioning / heating unit is in your window, and it can be loud when running full force.
Our neighbor's TV was a little loud, so we called the front desk and they took care of it, for which we are grateful.
The hotel is near Sleeping Giant State Park, so you can take a walk in the park if you want.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We got a crazy good rate on this motel - $36 plus tax - and for one night we decided we'd give it a try based on the reviews. We did not have the good fortune of a recently renovated room. Ours was pretty beat up -- stains on rugs and ceiling; bathroom tiles and sink, etc., all need to be replaced. But the bed was clean and comfortable and the water was hot so for $36, can't complain too much. The room even had a coffee maker and frig! But the heater was super noisy all night long; maybe that's why the road noise wasn't as evident. So if you're there for just sleeping and showering, it may be OK. Other than that, can't recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room.
