My wife took me to Fred's Inn restaurant for my birthday. When we arrived we were told there was no cook on duty so we would have to wait for our meal. Waitress had to remake our cocktail as she never made one before and wasn't sure of the first one she made so re-made it;, we didn't get what... More

I stayed at Fred's Inn on business as part of the group, so I can't comment on the rate. What I found here was a cute, comfortable place that was fine to stay for the night. I had an upstairs room and it was spacious and clean. Note that the inn does not have an elevator - so if you... More

Being at $75-$85 for a basic room, you can't expect much. I could go on saying the wash clothes were stained, the blinds were filthy and the dvd player sucked. But its $80 people. We were in room 18 and the rooms upstairs are very spacious with cathedral ceilings. Down stairs rooms are small. Now, the restaurant is known for... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and appointment of my room with 2 beds. It also includes a generous sized refrigerator and microwave. There were even mugs and tea bags and sugar! The bathroom had lots of towels, very nice new tub and enclosure and I was very happy here for the night. My friend's room was on the... More

I was assigned this motel for work. Upon first walking it everything looked fine. I then noticed lots of piles of hair on the bathroom floor. I went right back to check in to let them know. The man at the counter promised to have it take care of. I returned, hours later, and there was still hair all over.... More

Given the SEVERE LACK of lodging options in Norwich, NY, Fred's or budget chains are the choices unless you are okay driving 25-45 minutes to Hamilton or Oneonta. The rooms are motel-like, for the most part clean, but very modest in its features. You check in at the bar, where the crowd hears your room number (let's hope for no... More

I stayed at Fred's for 10 weeks last year and I am going back there- in a few weeks. Clean Room, well set up for the everyday business traveler. The staff is always accommodating and friendly."

Stayed the night on my way to Hamilton College one weekend this fall. What I liked: The room was clean and well appointed. Let's face it, for a Mom and Pop place in the middle of nowhere, that's saying something. Big color TV that allowed me to watch Notre Dame beat Texas (the Bevo with the glowing eyes outside wasn't...

You know for sure you have reached Fred's because as you approach you can't miss the huge plastic? horned bull perched about two stories above the ground at the entrance to the parking lot. The room was tidy and clean as was the restaurant. However, the entire place, both inside and outside, is drab and needs a "new coat of... More
