The date on this review is misleading -- we haven't stayed there in the last couple years, but we did stay several times when our second home on the lake was undergoing renovations and we had to come check on them. Shaheed so was always scrupulously clean, the breakfast is entirely adequate, the beds are comfy, the staff is friendly,... More

Terrific place to stay - very comfortable, clean and friendly folks. Highly recommend. I really appreciated the comfort level after a very long drive upstate from New Jersey. I travel to Tupper Lake on business, and I can completely count on the staff to take care of whatever my needs or questions are.

This is a great place to stay if you don't to run the air conditioner. The room we had has an oversized Fedders A/C with a compressor that vibrates the walls - absolutely impossible to have on when trying to sleep. Apparently the adjacent room had a similar condition, because we couldn't sleep when that was running either. It's acceptable... More

Other reviewers noted the firm mattresses. I found my mattress soft and a bit worn out. The mattress condition and the not so great pillows kept the rating from a fifth circle. The motel is very clean. The rooms are large and quiet. A fridge and microwave are a nice bonus. Excellent TV with many channel options including HBO. We... More

The owners couldn't be nicer. The rooms are large, clean & comfortable. The beds are firm but comfortable. The walls are thick so any noise is negligible. They are Eco conscious. They have a wonderful little continental breakfast in the morning. The rooms are cleaned & straightened up daily. The pool is warm & clean. I wouldn't stay anywhere else... More
