“Cozy and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I were looking for a local motel to spend the night while in the Finger Lake region of NY. The Sleepy Hollow Motel was perfect. We enjoy staying in small local motels while traveling and this little place was neat, clean, cozy and comfortable. The wifi was great. The room came with a mini-fridge and coffee maker which we appreciated very much. This motel must be a favorite of professional bass fishermen as the parking lot was filled with some of the most amazing bass boats my husband has ever seen! Apparently we were there during a fishing tournament! These fishermen know how to pick a quiet spot to rest and they also know how to leave very early in the morning with not a sound. We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Owners are very helpful and friendly. It has a heat and air pump that made the room very comfortable no matter what the temperature outside I use a blanket at night and was given a light warm blanket. It felt so good as we like our room cool at night.
Looking forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2. It has two double beds and were very comfortable. No chlorine smell to the wat...

Clean, safe and adorably vintage. Would I have liked to pay less? Well yes, but Sleepy Hollow Motel is a wonderful stop between Auburn and Skaneateles. It doesn't have the luxury items (or stale feel) of big chain hotels, but the wifi, AC, mini-frig, coffee pot & comfortable beds make for a relaxing & refreshing stay.

The Sleepy Hollow Motel was a GREAT find on our recent tour of the Finger Lakes. We wanted to frequent only local proprietors, and are glad we found this one. The room was very clean and neat, but also felt like a "home" atmosphere, unlike the large hotel chains which are clean but completely lacking in character. The proprietors were friendly, professional and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

Nice makeover on this old motel. Bed was comfortable, and room clean as a whistle. Mr. coffemaker and small fridge in room. No microwave. Cute little tv with basic cable. Free wi-fi. Quiet surroundings and friendly host. Basically, everything you need for a comfortable overnight. But paying $140/ night for this type of accomodation, we felt overcharged. We'll just say that we're happy to support the local economy. :)

Room Tip: There are only 14 rooms all in a row with drive up parking.

Dear Lisa, We appreciate your patronage and value your positive feedback. Microwaves and ironing boards are indeed available upon request. For those with a budget in mind and in lieu of a one night stay on Saturday, Sunday or midweek would generally provide a lower room rate. As for the local 13% taxes added as was cited in your total price, we unfortunately have no control. Thanks Again, and Happy Trails !

My wife and I occasionally stop at motels like this one...non-chain, older and therefore a little nostalgic for a bygone era. Rarely are we unhappy with our choices. Sleepy Hollow Motel is another good choice. The motel is clean and comfortable and very clearly well-maintained. The sleepy Hollow Motel is conveniently located between Auburn and Skaneateles. We were intending to check out Auburn and the Harriet Tubman home, but Skaneateles was a real discovery.

Reasonably priced, the Sleepy Hollow Motel is perfect way to enjoy both towns.

The room was, indeed, almost freakishly clean. We enjoyed friendly service when we arrived for two nights in June. The room fabrics felt dampish and beds were too soft for our comfort. Your results may vary.
