Stayed for two nights during our State Realtor Convention in Watertown. Great location right across from the Ramkota Inn where the convention was held. Great value for $65.00 a night which includes free wi-fi and continental breakfast. Very friendly staff!

excellent customer attention. The Patel family really goes the extra mile to make sure guests are comfortable. Hotel is clean and well attended to. The complimentary breakfast is an added value. Great room rates here as well. Room also includes refrigerator, microwave and coffee.

Our room was clean and had all the needed items for a one night stay. We only paid $60.00. We did not expect anything fancy and we got what we expected. Clean room clean towels. The owners were accommodating. we would stay here again (our small dog was welcomed at no additional charge)

This hotel/motel has overcharged us by an ubsurdly amount!!! And as of yet 4/2/2015 have not made things right with our account!!! 10,000$ to stay a month!! Would be understandable if we had 3 rooms ever night, yet this isn't the case! 1-2 at most!! Absolutely furious!!!!

My name is Victoria. We are pilot cars. We come thru Watertown often. Travlers Inn is a great stop. Even during their bussiest season, they will always find a room for us. The rooms are clean and comfortable beds. Owners are great.

I pulled into Watertown recently during a storm and needed a place to sleep. The owner/manager was very friendly. The rooms had been updated, new mattresses, shower curtains, etc. Clean, comfortable, and very functional. If needing a place to sleep for the night - it is great. They do have a basic continental breakfast (toast, bagels, juice, cereal, etc.) in... More

$59 is a hard price to beat - but.... The outside lights were so bright at night that the entire room was lit. There was a loud fight in the hall in the middle of the night. The area of town (west side) appeared to be a bit sketchy. I would pay a bit more and get a good night's... More

Mediocre at best. The best part is that there's a decent bar & grill, Woody's, adjoining the parking lot. The desk clerk didn't even ask how our stay was. I think they knew it was mediocre. Pathetic "breakfast". I'd look somewhere else were I to decide to stay in Watertown again.

The property itself is very tired and in need of an overhaul. If possible, stay at one of the other places available in Watertown; the Travel Host simply is not somewhere that would be acceptable to stay for most.
