“The Mildew Hotel (Super 8)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2005

This motel was undoubtedly the worst I have ever stayed at! A friend and I went to the NY Sheep & Wool Festival and stayed at a motel which was billed as clean!!! Boy, were we taken! I will not be back to a Super 8, nor will several others from the festival who were there. Rude employees, filthy bathrooms, and smoking rooms which were pawned off as non!! Don't even get me started on the mildew which was all over our bathroom. Nor on the beds which did NOT get clean sheets daily. (We stayed for 2 nights, and would have moved on but for the sheep festival.) The so-called breakfast was great if you can handle the sugar.

Stayed October 2005

Room was clean, but the products they use to keep them that way have a really strong smell. I'm verysensitive to chemical odors and found this to be almost unbearable (keeping the window open aired the room out a little - luckily it wasn't any hotter or at all cold). A good enough price, but I'd pay a bit extra to stay elsewhere.

This hotel is old, but it's obvious that the staff do their best to keep it clean. Front desk staff are polite and helpful.

The room was OK, except for the smell. We couldn't figure out what it was at first. Cleaning supplies? Air freshener? Insecticide? In the morning we noticed that, in spite of the paper no-smoking signs in our room, there was no permanent sign on our door like we saw on other non-smoking rooms. There were also cigarette burns on the bathtub. We finally decided that they probably ran out of non-smoking rooms and doused the room with as many air freshening and cleaning products as they could to hide the smoke odor. In any case, we couldn't wear our pajamas again after spending the night in that room.

The continental breakfast was OK.
