We could not find a room anywhere in Plattsburgh. All booked. Gas station attendant told us about the Rip Van Winkle Hotel. We were exhausted and had no other choices. We got the deluxe room! Kitchen counter and sink, covered with cigarette burns as were the carpet and the mattress. Horrible!! We were charged $100.00 for the night. If we... More

We were referred this location by a Gas Station attendant when we asked him if he knew of any motels with vacancies in the area. He said about 3 minutes down the road we would find the Rip Van Winkle! He also noted our RI plates and suggested that we would save time by taking the ferry to Burlington the... More

These were the absolutely worst, disgusting, old, stained and spent mattresses we have ever seen. They reminded me of mattresses my parents had in their home in the 1960's sans stains. Blood and other stains were on every surface and side of the mattresses and box springs. They were uncomfortable, sloping no support - long ago spent. . I wanted... More

I felt like home and defnitely i... More

We had been on the road all day and dropped in to see if they had a two-bed room, which they did, and we promptly got settled in. One bed's mattress sloped to the one side, giving only an OK night's sleep. Other than that, everything was fine and very clean and well kept. Complimentary coffee and danishes starting at... More

My wife and I were on our way from Montreal to Rhode Island. I knew we were arriving in Montreal late but wanted to be on our way, and through the Boarder for a good start in the A.M. I believe Plattsburg is about 100Km (60 miles) from Montreal. I called the Motel and explained our situation. I explained: "with... More

This is a Motel that houses people for extended periods of time. Some of those tenants made us feel very uncomfortable/unsafe the two nights we were there as they watch every move you make. This is a non smoking motel so they provide old coffee cans for cig. Butts. The tenant in the room next door became very nasty when... More
