We had stayed at another hotel in Amsterdam and were not happy with that stay. We looked at another hotel and that seemed old. The super 8 seemed just right for our needs. The greeting staff was friendly and polite. We found a coupon in a travel discount magazine that rest stops have for just this purpose. Total cost was $54 plus tax for two people. We didn't use the safe, for which there is a standard $1.50 charge. We had that credited back to us at the end. Just a note that many hotel/motels charge for this automatically so watch your bills!
The Super 8 would be a left turn from the NYS Thruway exit and a right turn into the parking lot. Easy! There was a restaurant in front of the hotel but on the same grounds. It wasn't opened.
The room had two beds, TV etc. and a separate heating/cooling unit, a small fridge and a microwave. The beds were very firm which is not to my liking. I always have an air mattress with me for just these times.
The entire room and bathroom were clean- no dirt in the corners, hairs in tub, sink, or on the toilet-this has been my experience at other hotels! Even as a guy I find this distasteful! Makes me wonder if I'm sleeping on clean sheets and I do check them to be sure! There was a little mold on the ceiling over the bathtub. Nothing major. The hotel seemed to be in good repair at least in the wind in which we stayed.
My only negative from my point of view was the included breakfast. Choices were: Fruit Loops (got the kids covered), Raisin Bran(got the adults covered), English muffins, white bread, cinnamon/sugar doughnuts, make-your-own waffle from batter, OJ, coffee etc. There weren't any toppings for the waffles like strawberries or bananas etc. just pancake syrup. If you are a sugar/starch lover than this breakfast is for you! The eating area was neat and clean and there was a person cleaning up after the people. I was told that the hotel is updating the breakfast menu.
Just out of the parking lot and to the left is a Dunkin Doughnuts and mini mart combination.
On a whole I rated the hotel average. It was a room-neat, cleaned, and someplace to stay to keep warm and out of the cold weather and snow. The breakfast was adequate and enough to get someone going. Would I stay there again?? Definitely better than the last place in which we stayed.
