What a delightful hotel! It is an older building, extremely well maintained and immaculately clean. The staff was very welcoming and pleasant. The bartender remembered many of his guests and their drink preference when they walked in - a welcome sight at the end of a long day! Updated digital heat/AC unit provided great response to Central NY's ever changing weather (50 degrees in the morning, snow at night). Microwave, refrigerator, and high quality wireless signal in the room were very convenient. The only thing I would change is to update the bedding to the pillowtop mattresses most hotels are using now and the TV to a flat screen. Given the high attention to quality and detail here, I would bet these are coming soon. The hotel evokes memories of a 1950's-era downtown hotel and is a nice change from cookie-cutter chain motels. I am already looking forward to my next visit here.
