Let's start with the positives. The room was clean, the beds - although small; they're full sized - were comfortable, the bedding was nice, the shower was hot with a nice shower head, and it's across the street from a great pizza place called the Ambassador. The rooms are extremely dated - the old square push button phone was straight out of the seventies - but that is to be expected up here in North Country.
The biggest problem was the noise. To call the walls paper thin is an insult to every paper mill in the country. When you can hear both ends of a phone conversation in the next room, there is a problem. But even that would not be a problem if the management exercised some modicum of control over the unruly guests who were shouting to each other in the hallways at 2:00 AM. Snowmobiles rule the north country on weekends, so the hotels have to cater to them. Most snowmobilers are probably polite, but when they get out of hand like that, management (or the police) need to step in. They did not. When we checked out we told them how horrible our stay was. The response was that they need a better night manager. You think? How about fire the entire management staff and start over. The entire reason for the building's existence is so people can - wait for it - SLEEP. If you can't sleep, there is no reason to get a hotel. This is not rocket science. So my advice is to avoid this place on winter weekends or any weekend when a group of loud, drunk people will be guests here unless a subsequent reviewer confirms that they have new management.
