I have worked in hotels and I have also stayed in hotels all over the country. I know that many managers/companies/family-owned hotels go for the money, money, money. Although I am sure the off-season had something to do with it, I was given a very reasonable rate for a suite with a large hot tub and living area. The bathroom was enormous! The manager was friendly and gracious and patient with my many questions.
Although the hotel has a Brooklyn address, there is no town on this exit. Even the town (on the next exit) is pretty dead, so don't expect much to do. They have a pool, but I guess don't run the heater until business picks up.
The hotel is well-taken care of, very clean, and much larger than it looks from the outside (It is 3 stories, and between 60-80 rooms). I am not sure if it has an elevator, as I used the stairs everytime.
One minor complaint was that the only hot food for breakfast was boiled eggs. There was bread, bagels, small muffins, 3 kinds of fruit and a couple cereals, and that was it. There was also no decaf coffee, but the single serve pot upstairs did have some. I don't know if they put out a better breakfast when business picks up or if its always that way.
My only other complaint was that the internet would not work in my room. I came down to the second and first floors and it did connect okay there. I am not sure if this was because there was not a wifi hotspot on the 3rd floor or because tablets are known for not doing well very far from the wifi location. Maybe a little of both.
The bed and pillows were very comfortable. They were not too hard not too soft.
If I could get that rate again and bring my wife next time, I would come back. All and all it was a nice experience.
