Was a non smoking room. That had been smoked in. When we unpacked our suitcase at home the next day they wreaked of cigarette smoke. The evening clerk said no extra pillows if you didn't order them when making reservation. Didn't know I needed to ask if a king size bed for two people only had 3 pillows when I... More

My fiancé settled into the disgraceful room that was given to us. The room appeared to not have been cleaned in weeks. Cobwebs in Windows stains on sheets. Luckily we had our own sheets in our vehicle and I went out to retrieve them. On my way out two young females propositioned me for sex in there room at the... More

First impression when I got there was not really a good one but the guy at the lobby was nice, and I went to the room and I had a good one if I compare with pictures I saw from other rooms... There was a weird humidity smell when I got in the room but after 5 minutes it was... More

A quick overnight stay on way to Boston. Hotel is old & out dated but not filthy. Bed was creaky & uncomfortable but bedding clean. Towels were like loofahs. I got what I paid for (used coupon out of Welcome Center booklet) & have no complaints. It was easy off & on the I90.

For a very reasonable rate, we got a hotel that was conveniently located right off the expressway, neat, clean and well-maintained. The house staff was courteous and knowledgeable. In addition, there is a convenience store located just steps away from the hotel. All in all, a very good value.

A good night's rest. Staff was easy to work with. Room very clean and spacious. Ac and plumbing all worked as they should. No fancy amenities but has room fridge, and on sight laundry facilities. Seems well priced and very accommodating.

Check in was pleasant but my room was like something out of a horror movie. Filth and debris covered every corner where the wall met the floor. There was a hole in the mattress filled with trash. There was also what I assume to be a urine stain on a comforter. I will never pay under $100 for a hotel... More

Booked it late and still had a good rate. Checkin was friendly. Rooms are large and clean. I missed breakfast so that is minor. Hotel looks nice with the blue outside. Quiet hotel. Easy acces to restaurants. We stayed between Niagara and on our way to Boston.

A typical motel as you find it on the fringes of many U.S. and Canadian cities, practical and not too expensive. Nothing special in either a positive or a negative way, everything just worked. 24/7 reception, no breakfast, but free coffee in the morning. Not quite close to the city center, but still barely in walking distance.
