My family and I just got back from a short trip to the Catskills. The Red Ranch motel is well located,at the crossroads of everything. There's a little farm and produce down the road; a nice looking popular Italian restaurant next door and the motel itself is very quaint and lovely. The red ranch reminds you of a ranch with...

I have been coming here about once every five years for about 25 years. It has barely changed. They have the same owner and staff. The place is kept VERY clean. It does look old because it is. Beds are comfortable. Great that unlike more modern motels you can park right at your door if you are on the first... More

Was glad to find this motel since there wasn't a lot to choose from in the area. We paid a little extra for more comfortable accommodations, the building in the back. We were happy to see our room, a little dated but no problem with that. Everything seemed to be clean and comfy enough for us. There's a restaurant next... More

We have used the Red Ranch many times over the years, always a good stay. We are Fishermen, so the large parking lot and electrical hook-ups suits us just fine. Within walking distance to Restuarant. Rooms are always clean and the Owners live on the premise and are very good people. Rooms are reasonably priced. We will be back.

On our way home to Long Island after a day in Cooperstown we came across this privately owned motel. The man behind the counter, presumably the owner was friendly and helpful. The room with a queen size bed was affordable $68 for the night. The room was clean, comfortable bed and good A/C. An Italian Restaurant is right next door... More

Check-in is fast and easy at Red Ranch! We were in our room within minutes. The room, although a bit outdated, was very clean and comfortable. It was nice to see a new TV in the room (digital) too! My only complaint is that the internet access is not reliable at all. I couldn't connect much of the time, even... More

Hi- Thanks for the nice review. I do believe you stayed here during the 4th of July weekend. Our internet provider had major problems between Thursday night July 2 and Sunday morning July 5. We basically did not have any internet service between those times. Sorry for that. More

My family stays here every Memorial Day weekend (15 years now) and always look forward to it. It's nothing fancy mind you, but it's a very good basic room at a great price, and CLEAN, which can be hard to come by in the Catskills. The owners are friendly and always working to keep the rooms and grounds perfect. It's... More

My husband and I stayed at the Red Ranch last weekend for the second time (1st time was last July). Same as last time, the room was very clean and the staff were friendly and professional. The price was less than half that of the hotel someone had recommended to us, even though the Red Ranch doesn't give AAA discounts... More

Super clean, comfortable, friendly inexpensive motel. I was looking for a place to stay while we hiked for three days and the places up there are expensive and got bad reviews. Took a chance on this place because of the reviews and price. And I have to say if you don't care about fancy decor and are happy with a... More
