“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We booked this motel based on Tripadvisor reviews,, although with some trepidation. We arrived much later then expected after a long and difficult journey and received a very warm welcome, which immediately allayed our concerns. It was dark, so we could not see the outside and so were not out off by it as other guests seems to have been. We had booked two double queen rooms, mistakenly thinking that that meant they had large beds. In fact we were amazed to find that we had two queen size beds, one in a self contained bedroom, the other in a bedroom/sitting room, as well as a small kitchen with fridge and microwave and a large bathroom. The beds were very comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean, there was a flat screen TV in each of the rooms, and a pile of fluffy, white towels. In the morning there was tea, coffee, rolls, chocolate biscotti and fruit freely available in reception.
We were touring Canada and the US and could not believe how little we had paid in comparison with everywhere else we had booked. The motel is near a main road, but not right on it, and the traffic did not bother us at all. Yes, you do need a car to get into town, but that is what you would expect in a motel, and the outside did not bother us at all. There seemed to be lots to see and do in the area and it would make a great base for a holiday for a family or a couple. We were sorry we could not have stayed longer

Even though we half expected upgraded accommodation at the motel (info shared on the trip advisor community pages), we weren't prepared for the beautiful interior of the rooms. We had a king "bungalow" complete with a corner jacuzzi tub and a regular bathroom also. Microwave and fridge, complete this scenario, so that you could be completely self sufficient. Gorgeous accessories and wall mounted fireplace and flat screen tv, make you believe that you are in a top notch hotel room. Clean, clean, clean. Owners provide a lovely continental breakfast that you can bring back to your sumptious rooms. The outside of the motel is somewhat a disapointment however, but I understand the owners are renovating the interior before the exterior. Also wasn't overly impressed with the surrounding area. Certainly need a vehicle to get to the downtown core easily.

I saw the many TripAdvisor reviews and wanted to try something different from the usual hotels/motels I have stayed at in the past. The outside of this motel was a little rough and reminded me of a bygone area of a 50s style motel before the advent of the interstate highway system. I pulled up and I took a deep breath and entered the room not knowing what I would really find. I was pleasantly surprised! Even though the basic structure was that of a old motel (low ceilings) the place was spotless and comfortable. I rented a room with a whirlpool tub and again the tub was clean with and an ample supply of plush towels. A "mini" breakfast was available at the office which included coffee, donuts and fruit. The owners of this motel couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. I have stayed at many chain hotels across the country and this little 50's style motel beat them hands down on price, cleanliness and value.

Most people would just drive by because the driveway is not paved and it looks run down. But the inside is nice. We got a two bedroom suite with a nice modern bathroom, a microwave and refrig. plus an area to sit. Large TV in the room too. Very clean. The owners are terrific people. They serve a great breakfast with bagels, fruit, coffee, tea, muffins, etc. and it is very tasty. You can't go wrong with the price either. You'd be paying double at another hotel. We stayed for 4 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Close to many attractions. Will definitely come again.

We stayed at the Miami motel Oct 18 /20 13 for two nights. Our room was large and most importantly spotless. The towels were fluffy white and the beds very comfortable. The Miami Motel is a work in progress but that only makes you more appreciative of how hard the owners are working to restore the motel. It is a the kind of place where you can go to the office, for the great continental breakfast,..in your pajamas..and we did . Valerie and Dennis make you feel right at home and are always working hard. For the price, you won't find a better place to stay.
The vibe is retro cool and we loved it.

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are a little small, but the quality of the upgrade on the interior is superior. The rooms are spotless, and the amentities are beyond what you would expect for a place in this price range. The bed was great. The wifi was fast and always available. The staff are friendly and quite helpful with questions about the area. There is quite a nice continental breakfast provided in the morning. This will always be our first choice when we visit this area of NY.

We have been staying here every year during the Steam pageant (atleast 8 years so far!). Before discovering The Miami Motel, we have stayed in a lot others in Canandaigua. Not one even comes close!!!! Every room is VERY clean and comfortable, I cannot begin to say enough about this motel. The owners, Valerie and Dennis, are the nicest people you will ever meet. We now book our room for the next year before we leave.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the whole place! Enjoy!
