Sunset Village Motel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Rochester
Reviewed August 29, 2010

The room was dirty when I checked in and the maid didn't clean it while I was out all day. The curtain on the door didn't completely cover the window for privacy. The bedsheets were mismatched and the wrong size for the beds. The rooms are cheaper than other rooms in the area, but the old adage "You get what you pay for" applies here.

I landed in this hotel for the money, but I'll definitely go back.

The rooms had potential for being kinda funky, but they weren't. Nice fridge and microwave, exceptionally helpful and cheery staff, clean. Not deluxe for sure, but a good value and a pleasant night's sleep.

I was pleasantly surprised with this Motel. It's an older motel but freshly painted and spotless rooms. Very Nice Staff and management that went above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. I would recommend highly to anyone traveling from out of town on Business or just want to get away from it all!!

The area just inland in New Hampshire is a hard one for finding places to stay. All the motels and hotels are either on the Rt. 1 corridor on the coast or further inland at the lakes and mountains. If you're in the Rochester area, your choice is either to drive 15 miles to Rt. 1, or select one of only a few places. For budget motels, Rt. 125 is one of the few choices. It is an old building, but has been cleanly re-modeled recently. The rooms are clean, hot water plentiful and there's cable television. It still has oddities, like very low ceilings and small rooms. Prices are not as low as perhaps they should be - there are cheaper digs 15 miles away on the more competitive Rt 1 corridor - but the place is clean. However, the management is hugely uptight. Here's just part of the registration form: "any charges that you have incurred while staying at this motel will automatically be charged to your credit card ... if any money is owed and not paid to us then we will be forced to call the police and then see you in court so we can collect the money owed." More such nastily-worded rules and regulations are posted in the room itself. There is no coffee or breakfast at all. Seems like it may be run by a very clean but stingy and ill-tempered person. The desk clerk was okay. The guests on a midweek night were quiet and okay, but perhaps they have a lot of welfare guests as towns around here do tend to stick the homeless in motels when there's no other option. I didn't see that on my visit, but why else the menacing signs and forms? It's a tolerable choice if you're stuck in the Rochester area, but certainly not a welcoming establishment.
