Here's the thing,if they had kept the MOTEL name I would have expected a MOTEL. Instead you call yourself a HOTEL and thats what I expected.
The pros....LOCATION!! If you are there for the Hall of Fame its great! You're a block away from it and the main part of town. Very picturesque right on the waters of Otsego Lake. Cute.
The cons...Like I said its a MOtel...NOT a HOtel. Yet they are charging you a hotel rate. For what I paid I expected alot more than shampoo/conditioner in a ketchup packet as my amenties. The rooms were musty/smelly. The beds were just ok at best. The restaurant service was awful and the table we had by the windows overlooking the lake could have used a wipe down from all the dead bugs on the sills inside, very unappetizing. The restaurant even seemed like it was trying to be something its not...on the menu hot dogs and tacos but on special caviar. Caviar, really???
So my advice to management, be one or the other. If you are trying to be CAVIAR then be caviar, give me nicely appointed rooms with separate shampoo and conditioner in bottles, decorate like you are in the current year not circa 1985, make sure the rooms smell nicely, and the beds and linens are comfortable. If you are trying to be exactly what you are now, go back to calling it a motel, reduce your rates by like $100 at least.
My advice to travelers, come down to the pier to see the lake and take the tour it was fun and very relaxing but there's got to be a few other places to stay in town or just outside of town.
