I was travelling from Syracuse after a heavy metal show and wasn't able to find rooms at the other motels/hotels in the area. When we arrived here i wasn't expecting much but it was clean, pretty quiet, not expensive and exactly what I needed after a long day and night.

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay this is the one. It was clean and quiet. They offer continental breakfast. The only downside, the decor is very old looks like 1980. I think that in 2016 we just want a comtemporary room that's it.

Very dated hotel. Off a bit from the road. Could not believe they did not have a flat screen TV. Reception was horrible and got very few channels. Internet connection was worse. Took room for two nights because we wanted to do some shopping before heading home. The good points were free breakfast, that was good a lot of variety.... More

This place was convenient and cheap. Walked in, booked my room and was not bothered. It was clean and quiet. There was continental breakfast, but I did not partake in it. Didn't have time. Had to hit the road. But there was a pool and it was clean. Can't complain about the stay.

It was a busy weekend in Watertown, and I was lucky to get a room. There was no parking nearby, and I had to park in an overflow area. This is an older property. The worst thing about it is that the smoking section is right next to the nonsmoking part. I had to walk through the smoking section many... More

Disgusting would be a compliment. The front office is OK but then you drive about 100 yards to the "Buildings" that house the rooms. The Building we were in smelled really bad. Probably the carpeting which looked like it hadn't been replaced in decades. The entire building was not very clean. The only thing missing from the ambiance were hookers... More
