We didn't stay here long but the staff made an incredible impression. Everyone was friendly (offered water) and helpful (assisted with printing tickets). The hotel itself was clean with a good breakfast. Highly recommend!!!

The rooms themselves do not have a patio/balcony. There are areas outside available including a screened in area. Given the weather--snow and cold can start early-- in December in Watertown area I am not sure that it will be available. I would call the front desk and ask what options might be available for this unique need.

"i have stayed in various rooms there all good"
"This hotel is located off the Interstate and can be quite noisy until traffic quiets down. Ensure that you request the quieter side."
"higher floors are quiet"
"Choose a room at the back of the hotel although the front did not appear too noisy"
"There is only one elevator so maybe rooms on the bottom floor would be best!"
$91 - $139 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
