This motel looks right out of the 1950's! Very cute, with pull up to the door parking spaces and old fashioned office in the centre. Rooms had comfortable mattresses and I slept very well. Slight mildew odor as might be expected from an old motel, but immaculately clean. Bathroom needs some updating and something besides a bar of soap should... More

Sometimes we prefer to stay in a chain hotel, but often when doing road trips through smaller towns we prefer these type of roadside motels. Sleepy Hollow was a good choice for us - friendly and comfortable and good value. Kind of a rustic/cottage type of environment, no complaints about cleanliness. We were checked in by a gentlemen that I... More

I stayed at the Sleepy Hollow Motelmfor one night. The room was nice, very clean. The owner was friendly and very courteous. The location is convenient to many of the finger lakes, and there are restaurants, gas stations, and shopping nearby. I am a fisherman and there was plenty of space for my boat. I highly recommend the motel.

It's clean but really old style. The bathroom is very small, so small that the TP is attached to the back of the bathroom door. Also significantly overpriced for what you get. Good location for access to Aurora and Skit.....

We were very satisfied with our stay. The motel is clean, comfortable, quiet for the most part, out of the hassle of town. Friendly gentleman at the desk. The wifi only worked outside on my veranda, but that was ok. I enjoyed sitting out. Has all you need at a reasonable price. We will stay here again.

We arrived very late and the manager was kindly waiting for us to arrive. We found the room clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed. Our only complaint was that price. We didnt have a choice on the weekend that we visited, but I didnt think it was a good value for the price.
