It was quiet. It was cheap. The owner (assuming he was the owner) was very nice and accommodating and had his staff cleaning when I came in. Also made sure the door was open for me when I went upstairs. Other than that it was very dated, the carpets were stained, chair was stained, TV was old but worked. The...

This is not the worst place I ever stayed, but it's in the top 5. Temperature in the halls was about 95 and they smelled like urine, the carpet is torn up and ragged, the towels were stained and threadbare, the wi-fi doesn't work, continental breakfast must have been on some other continent, ( there wasn't even coffee) the AC...

Good location. Quiet. Wonderful owner/operator, willing to go way out of the way to please his guests. Hard worker. Not a real high class motel, but it worked for us for what we had to do while in Princeton.

I must admit this motel was a mistake for me, I expected some thing else..The property is not well kept, the building has few lights indicating it even exsists. Almost impossible to find in the dark unless you know its there. First time drove right by it,had too call to find it...Coffee,I do not consider Continental breakfast, and doors to...

We got a room here, as it was located along the highway & we were unfamiliar with the roads & didn't want to travel after dark. Raj at the front desk was very friendly & accommodating, otherwise I would have given a one star rating. We were traveling with our little dog & they gave us a room close to...

I stayed for the weekend for a wedding and after reading the bad reviews, I had low expectations. My room was clean, the sheets and bathroom was clean, new shower curtain too. Raj was amazing and went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable. I have stayed in five star hotels and have gotten five star service...

It is filthy inside and out. I actually bought an inflatable mattress and plastic paint throw and slept on the floor. The mattresses were full of stains, and had some type of bugs running around. It reeks of stale smoke. I only stayed one night out of necessity because the other hotel was full. Raj was very nice and accommodating,...

The motel smells like stale smoke, but smoking is supposedly not allowed, we had small animals and were not treated well with them (we kept them quiet and they're potty trained), the sheets made us both itch (no allergies), we had to ASK for towels as there were none in the room, the property was very unkempt. We came into...

I like the place, but im not a picky person who judges by the paint job, Raj is a good host and what do you expect for the price? I like his style and courteous nature rather than stuck up people at the motel in canbridge that wanted a 100 a night. it did the trick had a good sleep...
