I stayed here overnight recently while traveling across New York State. It is a very large hotel for the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the bed was very comfortable as well.

I had called a couple times in advance looking for a wheelchair accessible room and was told none were available. I asked again and the girl was able to assist me.

A nice hotel. Good sized rooms but the beds were small. The hotel has a bar, no children, and Antony's restaurant which was good and you can take your bar drinks in there with the family. It has a nice but small indoor pool, the outdoor pool was under maintenance during our stay, but looked OK. The hotel location is... More

Typical Holiday Inn hotel but a little complex to get to especially if your room is in the other building. You have to take stairs (no ramp or other options) or have to walk outside, and enter through a different gate from the outside. Also, there is an adjacent bar which was exceptionally loud in the lobby - could not... More

I would recommend this hotel - it was comfortable and clean and for the most part quiet; I would suggest that they adjust the door closures so that they don't "slam shut" - that would be appreciated. I was very impressed by the very large indoor pool that was open until 9 pm.
