“Tear it down; it’s uninhabitable!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Wakita Court Hotel
1130 Route 9, Queensbury, NY 12804
Note: Don’t confuse these “rooms” with Country Inn Suites. This place is like an annex to the building of Country Inn Suites. They lure you in with that name and when you get there they’ll tell you, “go downhill and take your car there too”. When you rent a room with Country Inn Suits, make sure it’s not one of the rooms at its foothill shed. Here you’ll get no breakfast, a 30 years old TV, no telephone, no central air conditioning, no hair dryer, no iron, no coffee, broken tiles on the walls outside, rooms stink horribly, broken plastic chairs...it’s a nightmare! This place ruined our trip. They had the guts to suggest that we get a refund and go somewhere else; knowing it was a long weekend and schools were closed for summer vacation and there were no rooms available anywhere within the 50 miles radius!

Misrepresented worn out rooms. We were lured into booking two rooms thinking it was Country Inn Suites because we got the booking confirmation from countryinn.com! This was clearly unfair (address is the same as Country Inn Suites but these rooms are out of Country Inn Suites building and at its foothill). These are like makeshift rooms without even a telephone that you can use to call for service! Smelly rooms with reeking mattresses. We tried to warm up milk in the microwave for our kids and blew the fuse! We were sitting in complete dark before they fixed it. (I used my cell phone to call them, there’s no phone in the room). We had to move from our original room to another because the smell was horrible in that room...mold plus filth! No breakfast, no iron, no hair dryer, no coffee in the room. If there is coffee machine, there's no coffee, if there's coffee, there's no sugar and creamer, if there's TV, there's no remote control, if there's a lamp, it won't work! This is our firsthand experience, all these things happened in those two rooms in two nights we stayed. These are some rooms built in a shed and probably in the 1910 or so. We were charged $154 ($139 + tax) a night! The rooms are not worth $30! On Google, 1130 Route 9 shows Country Inn Suites (which has good reviews) we thought Watika was an old name for the place because it shows both names, we didn't know we were renting a makeshift room with a 30 years old TV and stinking beds at the foothill of Country Inn Suites. First thing in the morning I jumped out of bed to take a shower because I smelled of the filthy mattress! And my family followed the suit. The management shouldn't have offered these rooms to a family with small kids. They knew we were with small kids. At the time of booking I asked for extra pillows for the kids to keep them from falling off the bed at night and on arrival reminded the receptionist again; didn't work. It was embarrassing the way I was told to go down the hill and park my car there too. If you don't mind all that...then the location is perfect otherwise…STAY away!
